Medical Clinic & Haircuts today!

Occupy Medical Clinic is hosting a free haircut day on Sunday, March 25, during regular clinic hours from noon to 4 p.m. Volunteer hairstylists will cut your hair at the Federal Building plaza on the corner of 7th and Pearl in downtown Eugene.

Ready for a radical change? Volunteer hairstylists will also be standing by to clip your ponytail to donate to Beautiful Lengths which, in cooperation with the American Cancer Society, turns these donations into wigs for children struggling with cancer.

To donate your hair, please arrive with clean hair tied back in a ponytail or braid 8 inches or more in length.

Unbleached hair and hair with less than 5 percent gray will be accepted.

Free haircuts are given to all on a first come, first served basis.
