Children who missed the opportunity to get a free haircut at J.C. Penney (JCP) last month will get plenty more chances.

After an overwhelming response to the chain's free haircut program offer for children in August - 1.6 million haircuts, to be exact - Penney will be making it a permanent offer every Sunday, starting Nov. 4.

As part of that overall mission, Penney will also be offering free haircuts to breast cancer survivors in October, which is breast cancer awareness month, Hodges said
