ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Barbershops and hair salons reopened last week in Florida and they’ve been busy making their clients look great after more than a month of being closed. To make sure those on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic also get their hair cut fix, two Orlando-area barbershops are partnering up offering free cuts to those workers.

J Henry’s Barber Shop will offer free haircuts on Tuesday, May 19 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to those frontline workers.

Owner J Henry helped Gov. Ron DeSantis announce the green light for personal care businesses like his to reopen. DeSantis made the decision after meeting with Henry and other Orlando-area business owners.

Henry said first responders and healthcare workers can come to his shop at 644 West Church Street in Orlando for a free cut between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
