Language of Hair held a cut-a-thon fundraiser on Friday.

From 3 to 7 p.m., they donated the proceeds from all hair cuts to both Animal Allies and Safe Haven Shelter and Resource Center. Customers could choose which charity to support, or have their payment split between the two.

Language of Hair Owner Fay Kuettel said both organizations are close to their hearts.

"We try to do something every year to give back to our community," she said. "And animals are really important to a lot of us at Language of Hair, and we also have deep connection to the shelter."

Kuettel said they had eight stylists working for those four hours. They raised $1,000 total, and gave $500 to each organization.
