HANSON — When Massachusetts entered COVID lockdown last March, a great many people could not wait until barber shops and hair salons reopened to regain control of their messy mops.
Will McArthur of Cohasset had other plans for his longer locks.
He grew his hair long during the shutdown of Hanson’s Modern Barber Shop, according to employee Joan O’Brien.
“He then decided to see how long he could grow it,” she said. “During this time he decided it would be a great idea to raffle off his haircut and donate the money to the Hanson Food Pantry. He was able to raise $850 for them.”
He returned to the shop last week to get a stylish cut to top off the effort.
