Hairdressers have teamed up with a charity to help disadvantaged young people.

Hob Salon in Barnet, Whetstone and Southgate will be launching a 'Barnet Fair - Do Your Hair' campaign to raise awareness for disadvantaged young people in partnership with the Young Barnet Foundation, holding all-day fundraisers across the borough throughout December.

The campaign launched on Saturday and will aim to raise money for the YBF Space 2 Grow, which is a a programme of activities and opportunities for young carers, those with additional needs or from low-income families.

Hob Salons director Paul Simbler said: "HOB Salons are so pleased to be partnering with the Young Barnet Foundation to raise awareness of the challenges some local children and young people are facing on our doorsteps and help them through a fundraiser directly linked with our hair-dressing business.

"This campaign reflects our commitment to championing youth development and opportunity through our Hob Academy training and apprenticeship programmes."

More than 20 hairdressers and barbers across the borough will participate in fundraisers and customers will be able to participate in 'Barnet Fair hair selfies' to raise further awareness.

YBF chief executive Janet Matthewson said: "We are delighted that local businesses are joining forces with us to focus on the challenges children and young people in our area are facing and to raise money to help make a difference to their lives."
