Tough times call for free haircuts

It's a trim for tight times.

A hair salon in a Washington, D.C. suburb is offering free haircuts.

The Alexandre de Paris salon in Fairfax, Va., started the on-the-house do's yesterday and will continue today.

The idea is to help people who are looking for work to look their their best.

But the freebie cuts are available to anyone.

The salon is also collecting donations for the Dress for Success nonprofit.

The group helps disadvantaged women entering the work force by giving them suits and other business attire.
