Shelly Johnson, NMMHP Program Director and the coordinator of the event said “The reason I chose free haircuts was because I figured if you look good you feel good.” It was only four hours into the event and the barbers already cut 30 students hair.
Eric Young, a junior who received a free haircut said, “The free haircuts was a plus to getting information on sexual awareness because a lot of students don’t get to go home to get our haircuts.”
At the event there were presentations and pamphlets on health and sex issues. The presentation gave information about safe sex and had a question and answer section.
Guest speaker Dr. James Wadley, Lincoln‘s master humans service program director also had exercises where they could win prizes such as gift cards. Over 60 students received their haircuts at the event. On Oct. 8th the Male Minorities Health Center will be giving out free hair cuts again.
