免费剪发 送出爱心 True Heart Hair Dresser
Concern & Care Society started hair cutting classes in May 2009. About eight volunteers responded positively to participate in a 10-week hair cutting course. In order to do his part to improve the elderly’s appearance, image consultant, hairstylist, photographer and trainer Rovin takes great effort to turn these eight volunteers into “True Heart Hair Dresser”!
Concern & Care Society provides free haircut services as a way to show their concern for the community. In the process of acquiring hair cutting knowledge, the volunteers attending the “True Heart Hair Dresser” course has shown patience and effort.
Rovin personally coached the class. His enthusiasm and passion were displayed through the quality he maintained while providing haircut services. Through his well-designed training course, he had successfully trained volunteers to become qualified hair dressers within short period of time.
Concern & Care Society believes that a high standard of personal cleanliness must be maintained. All elderly are expected to present neat and clean appearance because that would give people a better impression.
Conversation with Image Consultant Rovin about Charity Hair Cutting
The reason for promoting charity hair cutting
We participated in several major hair cutting events for the elderly. However, due to busy schedule, we are not able to provide hair cut services every month.
Every year I am invited to participate in Concern & Care Society’s events, such as the graduation ceremony and concerts. I was touched every time the elderly shared their stories on the stage and I started to think what I should do to help them.
Singapore faces the problem of ageing population and I believe the elderly are facing difficulties with hair cutting. With that in mind, I started “True Heart Hair Dresser” courses to serve old people in the community. Due to psychological problems (those who feel depressed to go out), physical problems (lack of mobility) or financial problems (those who want to save money), many elderly do not go out for haircut. This could affect their appearance and image.
With the help of “True Heart Hair Dresser”, the elderly can ask for haircut services at their homes or join hair cutting session every Thursday. Elderly who have neat hair should feel more confident and comfortable; they are also welcomed by their grandchildren.
How to maintain clean and tidy appearance among elderly?
The elderly should keep their hair short and tidy because they usually have sparse and unhealthy hair. Therefore, I would suggest them to keep their hair as short as possible.
The 10-week course will not only train “True Heart Hair Dresser” to master basic hair cutting techniques, they will also be equipped with skills to create a presentable hairstyle. I am confident that they can do it.
“True Heart Hair Dresser” is ready to serve you. Elderly who are aged 60 and above are entitled to free haircut services on every Thursday from 2pm to 4pm. If you are interested in becoming a “True Heart Hair Dresser”, please call 6560 5455 for further details.
