A number of stylists volunteered to offer free, full in-salon experience to the newly-arrived Afghan refugees in Calgary.

“Together with GOAT Shop, we were able to coordinate free haircuts for some newly arrived refugees from Afghanistan,” Calgary Catholic Immigration Society (CCIS) said in an online post.

“Volunteer stylists from Notorious hair group, CaVaBien Hair Studio & Day Spa, Johnny’s Barber Shop, Social Cut and Shave & Hedkandi Salon came to offer the full in-salon experience,” CCIS added.

Many Canadians, including large Canadian businesses pledged support to Afghan refugees as Canada announced to welcome thousands of Afghans feeling Taliban following the takeover of the country by the extremist group in August this year.

Meanwhile, the Government of Canada recently announced it will double its humanitarian resettlement commitment from 20,000 to 40,000 Afghan refugees.

Addressing the General Debate of the 76th United Nations General Assembly ‘In Our Hands’ late last month, Canada’s Foreign Minister Marc Garneau said “Now, faced with a heart wrenching situation in Afghanistan Canadians have once again shown their openness to those who do not wish to live under Taliban rule but prefer to stand up for democracy, human rights and gender equality.”

Garneau further added “In fact, Canadians overwhelmingly called on us to do more. And in response to their generosity and welcoming spirit we have now committed to welcoming 40,000 Afghan refugees to Canada – so that they too can contribute to our success, while we continue to support their efforts for a more peaceful, tolerant world.”
