A CUT IT OUT® Grant for Industry Professionals

This grant application is for U.S. beauty industry licensed professionals who are domestic abuse survivors and in need of assistance in getting back on their feet, either financially or with employment. If approved, we assist with financial grants and/or assistance with employment placement within the professional beauty industry.


GET educated AND save A LIFE

Stylists, barbers, estheticians, and make-up artists are in the ideal position to recognize when something’s just not quite right with their clients. Physical signs of abuse like bruises and cuts, or outward behaviors, like self-blame, sudden lifestyle changes, and irregular appointments, can indicate that a client or colleague is in trouble. Salons, spas and barbershops are often one of the few places victims can safely and confidentially share that they need help.

Register today for a CUT IT OUT® training to learn how to…

  • Recognize signs and symptoms of domestic abuse
  • Respond to victims using discreet and empathetic techniques
  • Refer victims to professional safety resources.

Are you a domestic violence victim advocate? Help us educate our community by holding one-hour seminars for salons, spas, and cosmetology schools to educate licensed professionals on the signs of domestic violence. SIGN UP NOW >
