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.
