About 75% of adults fear public speaking. Because of this, The Hair Connection has joined the Books By Kids program! Our goal is to help kids build their confidence by reading in front of others while getting a haircut. We first started this in January 2019 after hearing about it from a barbershop in Pennsylvania. The program is to encourage children in public speaking and to help with reading.
As an incentive, kids that read out loud while getting a haircut receive $3, candy, and get to keep the book. We are very excited to adopt this program and help the children in our community not only with reading but to overcome the fear of public speaking.
