Hairdressers Taking Larger Role in Clients' Lives

Posted: Updated:

INDIANA_Every woman needs a trusting hairdresser.  They're always there for you on a bad hair day, but now the employees inside an Indiana salon say they're trained to do much more.

The employees of one Indiana salon just received training from a women's shelter on how to recognize the signs of domestic abuse.

"We are not asking our stylists to become counselors, but rather just recognize and address the situations as they come to them, " said Carrie Zickefoose, a director of a local women's shelter.

The training is part of a program called "Cut it Out". It capitalizes on the close relationship many women have with their hairdressers.

The training is only about an hour long but it offers ways hairdressers can take action in just three steps: how to recognize domestic violence, how to respond appropriately and how to refer clients safely to a women's shelter.

This is a pilot program in Indiana, but they hope to expand nation wide.
