Free Hairdressing in Adelaide
This is a short list of free hairdressers. Many others exist in hiding, but appear at various underclass venues throughout Adelaide.
What may worry some is the risk of catching diseases from homeless scene hairdressers. Free hairdressers I’ve questioned say they check each customer’s hair and scalp, but I’ve never seen anyone rejected. Nor have I heard of anyone who has caught a disease.
