LAS CRUCES – You gotta have a fresh look on the first day of school, right?

Helping to that end, Glitz School of Cosmetology in Las Cruces gave haircuts to a staggering 381 students ages 4 to 17 on Wednesday, prior to the first day of Las Cruces Public Schools on Thursday, Aug. 8. 

Liz Telles, director of operations at Glitz, said this is the third year the cosmetology school has provided free haircuts for students in the community. 

“The numbers are growing. Last year we did 125 haircuts. This year we completed 381,” Telles said. “Here at Glitz we like to give back to the community. Our students feel a sense of community and closeness and it helps them to get ready for their shears. It also helps build confidence in our students.” 

Telles said 37 Glitz students helped to cut hair Wednesday at the school, 2460 Missouri Ave.

“We also gave away 155 backpacks full of school supplies and gave away free hot dogs and bottled waters,” she said. “We love our community and all our students and will continue the tradition.”
