Preparation for Easter Sunday will be a little easier for parents as rappers Method Man and Redman offer free haircuts and for kids at this year’s ADG Kids Cuts Day.
The second annual event, a joint venture between the entertainers and Staten Island, NY-based barbershop chain Against Da’ Grain (ADG), will provide haircuts and styling for children under the age of 12 from noon to 5 p.m. April 3.
Participating ADG locations include West Brighton at 821 Castleton Avenue and the barbershop’s flagship store at 61 Victory Blvd. (formerly the Wu-Tang/Wu-Wear Store).
ADG barbers as well as celebrity barber/stylists Sean White and Tariq will be on hand to provide haircuts for kids.
According to Redman, Kids Cuts Day is true example of ADG’s efforts to give back to the community.
“Whether it's free haircuts or family style BBQ's, ADG is always looking for ways to reward its customers and I'm always down to celebrate their community efforts," the rapper said in a statement. "Considering last year's overwhelming participation and appreciation from our customers, we have now expanded our offerings to provide both boys and girls styling services, as well as our footprint to include both ADG locations," added ADG CEO Sean White.
In addition to free haircuts, Staten Island artists as well as DJ Megatron from BET’s 106 & Park’s What’s Good On the Streets segment will speak to kids while helping them prepare to “look their Sunday best” for the Easter holiday.
Organizers for ADG Kids Cuts Day encourage those bringing kids to arrive early for the event. Haircuts and styling will be administered on a first come, first serve basis.
