Eight area-school districts will be heading back to school Monday.
And, it's not just the paper and pencils students are preparing, it's their look.
And, First Impressions Hair Design in Roanoke helped kids make sure their hair was perfect for the classroom Sunday by offering free haircuts for girls and boys.
The shop isn't usually open on Sundays, but barbers and stylists were on hand to make sure everyone got a look they liked.
Explains Barber George Harrington, "We want to have the kids looking nice for school, maybe they'll feel like they want to go to school. And, will feel good about themselves."
Stylist Kierra White agrees, "A lot of kids can't afford to get their hair done. So, I mean we want everyone to look nice when they go back to school so they can feel confident about school or going back to see all they're all friends."
And, while kids like getting a new "do," there are some mixed emotions about heading back to school.
"I'm not really ready, but it is what it is, just knock it out," says William Fleming High School student Percy Day.
Third grader Nyai Stone has a list of things she can wait to do, "You can do work, all kinds of activities, play on the playground and eat lunch."
This is the 5th year for the free event.
Last year, more than 80-kids got free cuts, the shop was hoping to top 100 Sunday.
