Free training – giving hair and beauty professionals the tools to help people living with domestic abuse. 

Hairstylists, barbers, beauticians and tattooists get to know their clients. This unique relationship means that sometimes, clients may talk about things happening in their personal lives or stylists may notice something that concerns them. 

One in four women and one in six men experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives. Domestic abuse is about much more than physical violence and there’s a lot of help available for those experiencing it.  

The Cut it Out campaign was launched in Norfolk after the death of Kerri McAuley, who was killed in 2017 by her abusive partner. Before her death, Kerri had talked to her hairdresser about her abuse. 

Here at Equation, we want to give local hair and beauty professionals the tools to help. We’re offering

  • Free 90 minute online domestic abuse training 
  • Free follow up support
  • Assets to place in your salon to let your clients know they can talk to their stylist

Our aim is to equip you with the knowledge to understand more about domestic abuse and recognise possible signs that someone needs help, so clients can get support and advice, should they want it. 

Knowing what to say to someone who tells you they’re suffering or shows signs that worry you, isn’t easy. What do you say? What do you do?


We’ve now come to the end of our training series
