The Cuts at Bluffton opens for university students

The Cuts at Bluffton, a new campus hair salon/barbershop for all hair types at Bluffton University opened on September 11.

University students may make appointments during the week for hair services which are provided from noon-6:00 p.m. on Sundays.

Services are provided by barbers and stylists from Fresh N Faded in Lima. They include cuts, shampooing, line ups, color, conditioning treatments, two-strand twists and retwists and braids.

An effort of the diversity, equity and inclusion committee at Bluffton University, The Cuts at Bluffton was made possible by a generous gift from the racial justice ministry at First Mennonite Church in Bluffton, Ohio.

Tyson Goings, director of diversity, equity and inclusion, worked with Fresh N Faded to ensure the space was set up properly and had all necessary equipment. 

“We are really excited to be offering this service right on campus. We talk a lot about having a sense of belonging at Bluffton. This new venture allows students to get the hairstyle they want within an easy walking distance,” said Goings. “Students can present themselves in a manner they are comfortable with and maybe not have to wait until winter break to return home or to trust someone who isn’t licensed to do their hair.”
