NEWCASTLE BARBER TOM BAXTER HAIR OPENS ITS DOORS FOR 24 HOURS AND RAISES £2,500 FOR THE NHS
For three months OSMO ambassador Tom Baxter from Tom Baxter Hair in Newcastle eagerly awaited the news that salons could reopen post lockdown. When the date was announced, the 4th July could not come quick enough and Tom and colleague Dan Harrison returned in full force and decided to open the salon doors, for a full 24 hours of continuous haircuts.
In a newly refurbished salon, to adhere to all social distancing guidelines, at 12.01 on Saturday 4th July Tom Baxter Hair opened for its first official haircut in three months. Tom and Dan also took this opportunity to support the NHS and donated the £2,500 made from all beard and haircuts during 12.01am to 06.00am to the Royal Victory Infirmary, a place close to Tom and Dan’s heart, to thank them for all their hard work and dedication.
The International Hair Alliance
Tom’s first hair cut was Geordie Shore star Aaron Chalmers, who had been growing his hair out throughout lockdown in support of Tom and The International Hair Alliance – a social media group to support hairdressers and barbers during lockdown. After 06.00am Tom and his team continued to cut hair until the very last snip at midnight Saturday.
“Thank you to every single loyal customer that has stuck by us during lockdown. We know it has been hard for some, but we are excited to be back and making people feel good. The NHS have done an amazing job at protecting us against virus, this is our way of giving a little bit something back, giving up our time is the most precious thing you can give back,” Tom Baxter, Tom Baxter Hair and OSMO Ambassador.
