Cut X Dignity offers 10 days of free haircuts for Merdeka Special

Malaysians have been waiting to get their haircuts since the nationwide stoppage of salons during the movement control order back in June.

Such establishments have recently been allowed to operate again.

In conjunction to this, Cut X Dignity has announced its initiative to give free haircuts to the public for ten days from August 27 to September 5, 2021.

Cut X Dignity is a transformative venture organised by local NGO, the Dignity for Children Foundation’s (Dignity).

Cut X Dignity manager Priscilla Wong said the public do not need to be afraid because all employees were fully vaccinated and reporting to work 14 days following their second dosage.

Wong said the workers had enough protection and instructions to safeguard the safety of the customers who come to redeem their free haircuts.

“We are providing gloves, face shields to our hairstylists and told them to wear double masks while serving the customers to prevent the spread of Covid-19.”

“All the chairs and tools will be sanitised after each service,” she said. 

She also said one hairstylist would attend to one client at a time while observing social distancing in the salon.

Wong urged the public to adhere to the government’s Standard Operating Procedures in order to avoid infection and other health problems.

“We request the customers to wear face masks when coming to get their free haircut and strictly no waiting in the salon”

“We accept a maximum capacity of 16 clients a day abiding SOPs,” she said.

Its senior hairstylist Rolizeen Tino Robinson said the salon has received overwhelming response from the public to utilise the privilege in conjunction with Merdeka Day celebration.

He said the management was taking necessary precautions to curb the spread of Covid-19 although the employees were dealing with fully vaccinated customers.

“So far, 60 appointments have been scheduled as of today”.

“We’ve seen many reinfected cases in the country even after receiving both the vaccine shots.”

“We were told to sanitise our hands frequently and wear double masks,” he said.

However, he explained that the privilege is not applicable for kids below 12 years old as the management only welcomes those who carry a digital vaccination certificate.

“Customers must be fully vaccinated and received their second vaccination at least 14 days prior,” he added.

Robinson also said that the NGO was taking this opportunity to provide free haircuts as a way to help the community that supported it during the difficult times.

He advised the customers to make an appointment for their slots because walk-in customers will not be allowed and to be punctual as slots will be forfeited after 20 minutes.

Those interested in scheduling an appointment may call cut X dignity at 018 — 233 5284 or 03 4041 1399.

Those who want to contribute despite the free services available can do so to cut X Dignity.

Each and every donation will go towards Dignity’s food distribution programme.
