2016-02-18 Haircuts - Mariana Paddock 024 (2) (1280x1279)Once a month Mariana Paddock sets up shop for an entire afternoon at the LUM Office. During this time, she provides free haircuts for LUM’s homeless clients. Mariana is a professionally trained hair stylist in Lafayette with a very loyal (paying) clientele.

Observing the interaction between Mariana and the LUM clients is magical. She is giving them so much more than just a haircut. She gives each person her undivided attention — offering them conversation and good cheer. Mariana also gives them love, hope and respect.2016-02-18 Haircuts - Mariana Paddock 008 (2)

As she masterfully trims each person’s hair, you can literally see dignity restored and confidence built in each of her “customers.”

Thank you, Mariana for such a wonderful gift you are giving the homeless clients at LUM and to the entire community.
