Kingsport hair salon gives back to first responders

KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – A local hair salon gave back to area first responders on Monday.

Hair Benders Salon on East Center Street in Kingsport offered free haircuts and much more.

Owner of the salon, Hollie Taylor, said “they get free haircuts today, hot towels, essential oils. And they get a gift today. A lot of other businesses have gave back and gave us gift cards and stuff to give away.”

This is the first time the salon is doing this, but owners say they hope to continue to do this for years to come.

Employee Sabrina Hartgrove said it’s the least they can do. “As a salon, we just wanted to come together and give them an awesome experience and something that they probably don’t get everyday.”

Kingsport Mayor John Clark also stopped by the salon to show his appreciation.

Those at Hair Benders say they hope other businesses in the area will follow suit and give back to area first responders.
