Donnie Joseph, South Dakota Barber College Instructor, says,

“As barbers, you are a part of the community, so they get first hand experience going up to the cars, meeting the people, then the people are coming in for the haircut. It’s a great experience all around- free haircuts, these guys are getting a lot of hair cutting experience and also learning the business side of it as well.”
