JCPenney is helping ease the back-to-school budget crunch by offering free haircuts to students entering kindergarten through 6th grade. JCPenney stores equipped with a salon are participating in the free haircut promotion for the entire month of August.


The free haircuts are being offered as part of JCPenney’s new back-to-school marketing campaign, which includes the unveiling of the Shops concept. Newly designed denim Shops, featuring popular brands like Levi’s and Buffalo, will offer customers a fun place to shop while taking advantage of the store’s commitment to everyday low prices.


"The back-to-school season presents the perfect opportunity to offer free haircuts for kids and unveil our new Shops, giving customers a first glimpse of what will soon be an entirely new retail experience," said Ron Johnson, chief executive officer of jcpenney. "We know how important it is for kids to make a great first impression and with low prices every day, jcpenney is making it easier for parents to shop without having to wait for a sale."
