Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Haircut Happiness


--by kiwicat, posted Jun 9, 2015
I was getting my hair cut at the hairdresser yesterday.

I go to a salon where you can choose a basic hair cut then get the extras like a wash and shampoo, blow dry, straightening, etc. I was thinking I would get a haircut and a blow-dry (both cost the same) and I overheard the woman next to me saying she had needed to wait a while between haircuts because she had a big power bill to pay as she had been unwell and used extra heating. 

I decided to forgo my extras and paid for her haircut instead. I just left a little hand-written note saying that I was glad she was better and out and about, and it was a gift from me with blessings. 

The hairdresser gave me a hug.
