ABOUT "CUT IT OUT!"
between a client and a salon professional is usually based on trust
built up over time. Because of the intimate and nurturing nature of
the relationship, a trained salon professional— who usually sees a
client on a regular basis—can often spot signs of physical abuse
that others may never see. A change in a client’s behavior can also
be easily recognized by a salon professional.
Research shows that most battered
women never call the police or go to a shelter. However, they
usually do talk about the abuse with someone they trust. Because
salon professionals are experienced listeners who are personally
interested in their clients, many women suffering from abuse feel
comfortable confiding in them—even if the abused women would never
tell anyone else. In addition, because a salon is often an
all-female environment, it may be one of the few places that a
battered woman is allowed to go without her abuser.
Salon professionals have a unique
opportunity to reach victims that domestic violence professionals
may never see. With proper training to recognize abuse and to steer
victims to help, salon professionals can become invaluable and
influential community partners in the fight against domestic abuse.
JFSA, in partnership with the State of Ohio Attorney General’s
Office and the Salons Against Domestic Abuse Fund, is pleased to announce the Greater Cleveland launch of this
exciting new program designed to help local area salon professionals
join in the campaign to end domestic violence.
