    Do you need "to"?

    Dear teachers,

    In my daughter's English class at her junior high school,
    she made quizes.
    " Who is the person that we go to for haircut?"
    I'm wondering if we need "to".
    Can we say
    " Who is the perwson that we go for haircut?"
    without saying "to"?

    By the way,the anwswer is " a hairdresser"

    By the way, the anwswer is " a hairdresser"
    "to" is needed. In that context, "go to" is short for "go to get", like this,

    Who do you go to (to get your hair done)?

    The words in brackets can be omitted.
