Barbering students from Weston College Hair and Beauty Centre are giving away free haircuts today.
The pop up-barber shop at Weston's Sovereign Shopping Centre runs until 3pm, and no appointment is necessary.
Tutor at the college, Stuart Donovan, said: "The aim of today is to get the word out about the barber shop at the Health and Beauty Centre.
"The students need clients for their assessments, so we're hoping more people will come and get a cut.
"Today's event is also great for the students, as it gets them working with the general public and it is great experience for them."
First-year student at the college, Liam Thomas, said he decided to become a barber because it would be a 'cool career'.
He said: "It's a creative career and always in-need.
"It's skilled work - you have to listen to what a customer wants and then successfully interpret."
After the course, Liam hopes to get a Saturday job as a barber and work his way up from there.
