For seven years one East Texas stylist is giving back to the community by giving people with special needs a free haircut for the month of December.

According to KLTV, Donna Grandberry of Salon Selections in Tyler is the parent of a 17-year-old son with special needs and she recognizes the daily challenges that comes especially with getting a haircut.

That’s my son over there and he’s not patient all the time.  Sometimes we get our arms grabbed and we have to fight to make that haircut happen and I know it wasn’t easy as a parent to give your kid a haircut.

Because of her experience she made the decision to give back to parents of children with special needs and started offering free haircuts in December and the only thing that's required is a smile.

Grandberry chose December so she could have families take holiday photos with Santa Claus.

I have plenty of friends with children with special needs and I would like to give a shout out to Ms. Donna for doing an outstanding job.

Salon Selections is located in Tyler at 416 W. Locust Street and take appointments year around for parents of children with special needs.

The salon's number is (903) 593-5040
