Hairdressers Can Help - 29 June 2015

It’s not OK has developed a package of resources to help hairdressers and beauticians know how to respond to clients affected by violence at home.

The package includes posters, statistics, brochures and badges. The YouTube link for the online video is here

The campaign ran a pilot in Taupo last year in partnership with Ohakune hairdresser Kelly Porter who was already practising family violence prevention in her salon.

Hairdressers in Taupo were invited to a presentation by Kelly and the It’s not OK team and subsequently featured in posters and the online video.

The pilot showed that hairdressers regularly see clients who are living with violence at home but are not sure how to respond or how involved they should be.

By knowing how to respond and where people can go for help, hairdressers can help clients get the help they need and be part of building a community that says family violence in not OK.
