CUT IT OUT
Positioned to Help
Sisters Empowerment Network, Inc. is excited to teach salon professionals, manicurists, massage therapists and other professionals how to recognize the signs of domestic violence and how to offer support.
We recognize the nurturing and personal relationship that develops between a salon professional and their client. Many times, abusers isolate their partners, and salons may be one of the few places where survivors are not under watch.
Our goal is to connect domestic violence advocates with professionals at salons, schools and beauty events. In a 1 ½-hour training session, salon professionals learn the three Rs:
Recognizing signs of verbal and physical domestic abuse
Responding to the client appropriately
Referring the client to professional help
SALONS AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TRAINING
CUT IT OUT® is a charitable program of the Professional Beauty Association (PBA).

Our primary goal for the CUT IT OUT training course is to train salon students and professionals about physical warning signs of abuse, such as bruises or missing hair, as well as signs like fearfulness or discussions about issues in their relationship. During the training we will teach the students that if the client does not respond well to questioning it’s okay for them to back off, but continue to pay attention. We will reinforce not to try to make the client get help, but to take them aside, speak quietly, and provide them with the resources and services information.
