Haircuts by Children!

May 6th, 2006     by Melinda Mattos     Comments

How often have you looked in the mirror and thought, Damn, I need a haircut – by children? Well, friend, you’re in luck. Today and several other days this month, kids aged 10-12 from Parkdale Public School will be offering free haircuts to the Toronto public.

As the press release says, “HAIRCUTS BY CHILDREN is a whimsical relational performance that playfully engages with the enfranchisement of children, with trust in the younger generation, and with the thrills and chills of vanity.”

Sounds terrifying to me, but a 17-year-old boy once came perilously close to cutting off my earlobe during a home haircut, so perhaps I’m biased.
