Cut out domestic violence

Created by the Professional Beauty Association (PBA), CUT IT OUT is dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others in the beauty industry to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities throughout the U.S. It builds awareness about domestic violence and trains salon professionals to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients, colleagues, friends and family to local resources.

Research shows that domestic abuse victims rarely call the police or go to a shelter. But they do sometimes talk about the abuse with someone they trust. Because salon professionals are skilled and experienced listeners, many people suffering from abuse feel comfortable confiding in them, even if they would never tell anyone else.

With proper training, salon professionals can become invaluable and influential community partners in the fight against domestic abuse. That’s where CUT IT OUT comes in. Domestic violence service providers offer CUT IT OUT training at salons and schools, beauty events, and many other venues across the U.S.
