Retro haircuts help raise money for charity
Participants will sport the retro cuts as part of the Mullet for Mind Jersey initiative launched by the organizers of the Good Vibrations Festival.
The 1980s-themed surf and music event was slated to take place earlier this year, but was canceled due to Covid-19 restrictions that prevent large-scale events from being held.
However, the Mullet Campaign, which raises funds for mental health charity Mind Jersey, has already surpassed its original fundraising target of £ 1,000 and some participants have decided to continue making the cuts.
Charlie Rio and Luke Hounslea will receive a mullet this Saturday at the KSG Barbershop in Bath Street.
Festival and campaign organizer Jake Powell said the idea for the initiative was directly linked to the theme of the festival.
“We’ve seen some fantastic costumes and wigs from our previous events, including a lot of mullet wigs, so we thought it would be a good idea to have a little fun and encourage people to collect some money. ‘silver and sporting a retro fit,’ he said.
Mr Powell said he was “extremely grateful” to attendees who continued to fundraise for the initiative and move forward with the haircuts despite the event being canceled.
“Unfortunately, we weren’t able to provide people with the live entertainment of the haircuts at this year’s festival, but it’s great that these boys still do.
“Mental health affects more people than ever right now.
“The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the mental health of many people and we must continue to look out for each other. Every donation to Mind Jersey helps to help our islanders, ”he said.
