Getting your hair cut can feel like a chore. But what if you could just make it part of your regular commute?

Union Station is lathering up a genuine 1930s-style barber shop experience in the middle of its handsome waiting room. On Thursday, March 16, the historic Downtown train depot will partner with Svelte Barbershop + Essentials for an afternoon of swanky haircuts. In addition, Traxx will set up a pop-up bar on its indoor patio.

Svelte—which has locations in Hollywood, Manhattan Beach and Venice—will offer either a haircut or a hot shave for a pretty reasonable $25. Even better, all proceeds will be donated to hunger and poverty nonprofit Heifer International.

The pop-up pays tribute to the barber shop that once resided within the station following its 1939 opening.
