Once a month, the Green Tangerine Salon in Boston offers the Back Bay area's homeless women a chance to feel pampered and taken care of.

In collaboration with local female homeless services center The Women's Lunch Place, Green Tangerine opens its doors to homeless women one day per month. The women are given free haircuts, washes and blow dries, leaving them feeling refreshed and relaxed. The salon provides snacks and refreshments for the women, who get to chat and catch up with each other and their stylists as they get their hair cut and styled.

Green Tangerine's free haircut day is actually the latest iteration of a series of similar initiatives, including a street barber in New York City who offers on-the-spot cuts to homeless men.
