Four One Three Salon Offers Free Back-to-School Hair Cuts for Pittsfield Girls
For the fourth year, local entrepreneur Alicia Powers and her team at Four One Three Salon will offer free back-to-school haircuts for local school-age girls.
When Powers opened her salon, part of her mission was always to help give back to her local community in any way she could. Each year, with the exclusion of last year due to the pandemic, Powers and her team have volunteered their time and expertise to provide fresh back-to-school cuts to girls and young ladies in the community to help give them an extra boost of confidence as they head back to school.
"We absolutely love giving back to the community that has given us this fruitful life. Seeing the smiles on these girls' faces when they leave makes it all worth it."

Powers partners with Pittsfield Police Officer Darren Derby every year for the event, which is generously sponsored by Berkshire Property Managers. 413 Plumbing also donated school supplies for each of the girls to take home with them. In addition to those sponsors, Powers says many of the salon's regular clientele donate to the cause as well.
This year's event is taking place on August 23 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Four One Three Salon, 53 Wendell Ave in Pittsfield, where the entrance is located in the rear of the building.
Anyone with questions about the event can call the salon at (413) 464-7076
