SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Many barbershops are closed on Sundays but not Razor Sharp Barbershop. The shop will be open for it’s annual Back to School Free Haircut event on Sunday, August 18.

Event attendees will see Razor Sharp owner, Wanda Murphy, and eight other barbers will be giving away free shape-ups or all over cuts.

Murphy said there will be a sign-up sheet, but it’s best to come early.

Murphy said the Razor Sharp Barbershop parking lot will be filled with free food, school supplies, entertainment and all around fun on Sunday.

She said, just like the last four years, they’ll give free haircuts to children from kindergarten through 12th grade.

This annual event is something Murphy is not only proud of, but believes its a necessary good.

“I think that it is important as a business owner to give back to your community. I want them to know that we are here for them. Last night I just attended the Highland Master Plan Meeting and they have some great ideas for this area,” Murphy said.

Each year more students have come for school supplies and hair cuts. Murphy said each year sponsors, like The Beacon Drive-In, are how the event is able to continue growing as well.

She added more donations of any kind are welcome, just call the shop at (864) 308-1951. Murphy encouraged attendees to come early, since the event is like to be packed!

“I just want them to know that Razor Sharp is a community barbershop and we are behind them 100%,” Murphy said.
