Get a $5 Haircut, Help Stop Domestic Violence

Here's a silver lining to the dark cloud that is the economy: This Saturday, you can get a student haircut for just $5 — and your donation will raise money to help stop domestic abuse. Empire Education Group, a chain of cosmetology schools, is raising money for local women's shelters and for Cut It Out, an arm of the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund nonprofit. All proceeds from hair, skin, and nail services — not just the $5 specials — will go to fund this cause. (Search for a location near you to buy the $5 haircut card in advance.)

Why are salons and beauty schools involved, you ask? It actually makes sense: Women often have a close relationship with their hairstylists, and stylists can offer a safe space to talk or reach out for help. If you need help, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800) 799-SAFE. If you want to help other women, join the RESPECT! group on TeamSugar, where we're working with the Family Violence Prevention Fund to stop abuse.
