Cut It Out®

The Beauty Community Against Domestic Abuse

CUT IT OUT® The Beauty Community Against Domestic Abuse is a program dedicated to mobilizing salon / spa professionals, students and others to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities across the United States. CUT IT OUT® builds awareness of domestic abuse through awareness materials to be displayed in salons, the “Give the Power Back” initiative to involve salons in helping local domestic violence agencies, and training salon / spa professionals and students to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients to resources.

Thank You

A special thank you to L’Oreal Professional Products and SalonCentric for sponsoring the CUT IT OUT® program and helping to enhance our training program through the creation of new program videos.

Education that Saves Lives

Stylists, esthetician 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 are often one of the few places victims can safely and confidentially share that they need help.

Register today for a CUT IT OUT® salon team 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.
