Peter Wright’s hair salon gives out free haircuts for homeless and unemployedMarch 30, 2022
Darts world champion Peter Wright’s hair salon is giving out free haircuts to the homeless and the unemployed. Wright – who is known for his outgoing hairstyles on the oche – owns a hair salon near the town of Lowestoft, and the business is offering the amazing gesture to those who need it most in the community.
The Medusa Unisex Hair Salon kicked off the scheme on Sunday, and invited 20 homeless and unemployed people from the area to pop in for a free cut between 10am and 2pm. The invitation saw 10 people take advantage, with the hope that the plan will help those ‘feel better about themselves’ and help them in their future employment hunt.
The salon is run by Naomi Lloyd-Wright, but is owned by her parents Peter and Jo Wright. And discussing the deal, Wright’s daughter Lloyd told The Lowestoft Journal: "We are doing haircuts for the homeless and unemployed just to help them feel better about themselves. It is about them feeling good about themselves and potentially get a job as well.
"We were all having a chat in the salon and we thought it would be really nice to do something like this. We are trialling this with 20 people invited. We had ten people turn up today.
"It was a mixture of both the homeless and unemployed people. They all said it made them feel better. I think it was a success. We would do it again, we said the last Sunday of the month."
Wright has announced himself as one of the best players on the planet in recent times, and has gone on to win two world championships in three years, winning the 2020 and 2022 event.

Of course, Snakebite's trademark is the weird and wonderful hairstyles he dons whilst out competing on the big stage. Asked if she would sort out one of her dad’s famous styles for one of their new clients, his daughter joked: "I would say it is probably not good for an interview, come back when you have got the job."
Wright lifted his second PDC world darts championship title just months ago after overcoming Michael Smith in the showpiece final at Alexandra Palace. He produced a stirring late run of form to take home the £500,000 prize money.
It looked as if Smith might win his maiden world championship title after putting himself within one dart of a 6-4 lead. However, Wright found some late momentum and went onto win eighth legs in a row before finally sealing glory at Alexandra Palace.
