Wesley Chapel, Florida – It's almost time to head back to school and that means it's almost time for the hugely popular Back to School Bash at the Cobb Theatres in Wesley Chapel.

In past years, about a thousand people have lined up early to take advantage of the free services offered.

The event takes place Saturday, August 9, at the Cobb Theatres Grove 16 complex at 6333 Wesley Grove Boulevard from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

iStyleXG salon owner Brandon Laxton describes some of the fun things to expect at the bash.

The bash offers children free school supplies, health screenings, and even haircuts! iStyleXG salon owner Brandon Laxton has lined up 10 stylists to furiously clip and cut kids' hair for free. "We have music going for them. We create an atmosphere for them. We love what we're doing, the energy's contagious and when they leave they are glowing," says Laxton.

The free haircuts and other services are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so families should line up early. There will also be fun activities for children like face painting and games.
