Yes yes y’all, it’s back!

After a Sandy-related postponement, Brooklyn’s best amateur barbers are back in action in Bed Stuy. HalloVember, formerly known as OktoberPHRESH, is a monthly-ish queer pop-up barbershop dedicated to spreading hard love and good looks. The Hair Force One collective will be giving $10 haircuts tomorrow night to benefit Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts.

Seven bucks gets you two drinks, and the best $10 you will ever spend gets you two drinks and a haircut. All ages, genders, sexualities, hair textures and Halloween candies welcome. Proceeds will go toward Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts. So maybe go volunteer and then come hang out.

Btw, HalloVember is Halloween in November, because you deserve it like that. Many of us didn’t get to have a proper Halloween this year. Let us be your Halloween.

WHEN: Sunday, November 11. 4-10 pm
WHERE: Casa Duende, 627 Madison St. between Stuyvesant and Malcolm X
COVER: $7/2 drinks, $10/2 drinks + haircut, $5 non-drinkers
(RSVP to the Facebook event here)

See you and your hairs there.

Also, it’s a costume party, so don’t forget your mouse ears.
