LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A well-known hip-hop artist from Louisville is teaming up with several local barber shops and an entertainment company to make sure local children look and feel good on the first day of school.

Buffalo Stille, a member of the platinum-selling group Nappy Roots, and Triple Three Music Group have arranged for 100 kids to get free haircuts on Monday.

"We understand that parents have already spent a lot of money on their kids' school clothes, shoes and school supplies already," Stille said. "We want to make sure that kids walk into school on the first day with their heads held high, and a fresh haircut helps instill confidence and pride."
