Newport barbershop owner offering free haircuts to kids with families financially impacted by COVID-19

NEWPORT, RI (WLNE) – Gentlemen’s Quarter Quality Grooming on Farewell Street is offering free haircuts to elementary, middle, and high school students whose families are out of work due to the coronavirus.

The owner, Victor Curet, says he wants to give back to Newport’s “struggling community.”

“I really would like this deal to be for families in need and not for anybody who wants to come to get a free haircut,” Curet said.

Curet says he is offering free haircuts until July 31 or however long people need them.
