Event Details

This is a fun promotional event started by Paul Mitchell schools (locally it’s the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics & Cosmetology on Folsom and 7th St.) , but we think this is a great idea that should go city wide.

So look for people dressed in black with “free hugs” signs and get ready for a big squeeze. Or, as long as you’re not creepy, make yourself a sign and give a hug back.

This year, on September 24, 2013, an army of 16,000 Future Beauty Professionals will take to the streets throughout the continental United States and Hawaii for Paul Mitchell School’s fifth annual Free Hugs Day.

Dressed in their signature black outfits and carrying handmade “Free Hugs” signs, students and staff from the network’s 100 schools put down their combs, march out the door and head for plazas, parks and other popular spots, offering free hugs in effort to shine some happiness and beauty throughout their local community.
