Christina Furstenwerth of Smart Styles cuts 1-year-old David Smith's hair. It was his first hair cut, said mom Carie Smith. She and her husband have six kids, and money is tight, so she's very appreciative of the help - which included vision and hearing tests. “There are a lot of people out there who are struggling.
