Haircuts 4 Homeless are launching an exhibition at Angel Central, north London, for three consecutive weekends from 1st September until 18th September.  The registered charity, set up by veteran hairdresser Stewart Roberts, has teamed up with Angel Central to showcase beautiful portrait photographs and intimate quotes from its new book Hear Me, See Me. In a collaboration which saw Stewart team up with photographer Jack Eames and session hairstylist Leigh Keates to document the charity’s clients’ spoken stories over the past three years, to create an inspirational photographic coffee table book featuring the charity’s guests and will be available to buy at the exhibition.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the charity and to humanise the face of homelessness by challenging stigmas and stereotypes via honest, thought-provoking imagery and words to acknowledge that the smallest of actions can have the greatest effect. A haircut can give someone a real boost. It’s often way down on a homeless person’s priorities so the service proves to be very popular. One of people’s basic rights is for them to feel good about themselves and this service can give that to people.  The Haircuts4Homeless exhibition will open to the public on Friday 2nd September and run every Friday to Sunday until the 18th of September.
