CUT IT OUT in October

Domestic abuse affects thousands of people all over the world on a daily basis, but the sad truth is that only a fraction gains the courage to speak up and reach out for help.

The Professional Beauty Association’s (PBA) CUT IT OUT: Salons Against Domestic Abuse program wants to stop this nationwide epidemic. CUT IT OUT trains salon professionals to recognize the signs and symptoms of abuse to safely and confidentially help clients, co-workers, friends and family find help through local resources.
