    Evergreen Beauty College student Anastacia Rix cuts a child's hair during last year's Bringing Beauty Back to School Event at the college's Everett campus. The college is hosting the event again on Wednesday to give students in kindergarten through high school free haircuts.

EVERETT -- Students can get free haircuts Wednesday at Evergreen Beauty College.
The second annual "Bringing Beauty Back to School" will be noon to 6 p.m. at the school, 802 SE Everett Mall Way.
All kids from kindergarten through 12th grade are eligible.
Evergreen Beauty College's students first held the event as a way to help families get ready for school, said president Joe Trieu.
Organizers expected to give about 100 haircuts, but were surprised to give about 1,200 haircuts altogether at the Everett and Bellevue campuses.
The first event brought together Evergreen Beauty College students with ages ranging from 18 to 56, and changed the culture of the school, Trieu said.
The college since then has used the momentum to organize other community events.
"I think it's been really neat for the students to get that exposure and understand the gifts they have are really important and what they do does make a difference in people's lives," Trieu said.
About 150 students attend the Everett campus and are all expected to give haircuts, mini-manicures and offer skin care services throughout the day, Trieu added.
While the haircuts are only for students, the other services are free to anyone.
Organizers decided to make this year's event three hours longer and anticipate a crowd of about 1,000 people at each campus.
While the haircuts are free, donations will be collected for Ronald McDonald House. Prizes are also set to be given away to participants.
"When we started organizing we had so many different vendors who heard about the event last year and asked to be a part of it this year," Trieu said.
