Cost of Living crisis: Generous Leeds hairdresser offering 'pay what you can afford' haircuts for struggling customers
and live on Freeview channel 276
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, people of all ages will be able to have their haircut while paying what they can afford.
Speaking to the YEP, Sam explained that she felt it was the least she could do to help the community.
"Over the last few weeks with the cost of living crisis I’ve had so many clients coming in that are really struggling and I kind of just wanted to do something nice and on my quieter days give those who are struggling an opportunity,” she said.
"I just felt like it’s so important as being in Roundhay it’s a real community area so anything you can do to support local people is great.”
Sam opened the salon a year ago and stated that her original concerns of another Covid-19 lockdown have been replaced by the worry of additional costs due to the cost of living crisis.
She said: “It’s having quite a significant impact with the cost of heating and electricity, two things we obviously use a lot so it does make a massive difference.
"Our cost of stock has gone up so it really is everyone that is affected. As a small business we can’t make big donations but the little things we can do is what makes the difference if everyone plays their own little part.
