Just Cuts Franchise Owners turn teams yellow for 'R U OK Day'
Just Cuts Franchise Owners across Australia and New Zealand switched colours to yellow to mark R U OK day.
R U OK is an Australian suicide prevention charity that aims to start life-changing conversations.
Just Cuts Franchise Owners and their Stylists wore yellow to raise awareness for the organisation, and used in salon decorations and social media tiles to champion the charity in salons this week.
CEO of Just Cuts, Amber Manning, said stylists are conversationalists by trade who chat with clients from all walks of life to understand what they want, and pick up on signals that reveal how they feel.
“Being a Stylist sometimes means also being a confidant, as we know that engaging conversations can be an important part of making our Clients look and feel great about themselves.
"Our Stylists have a unique power during the pandemic, touch. The styling chair is a stage and every Style Cut is an opportunity to engage with Clients, helping them stay connected during COVID-19.”
Amber said Just Cuts supported R U OK Day because many people don’t know what to say next after hearing someone is struggling.
“A conversation can change a life. If someone sits in our chairs and says they’re not ok we keep the conversation going, from kids stressed at school to adults dealing with work or family pressure.
“Meaningful conversations are vital. They build trust and break down barriers, which is something our Stylists do every day for clients by simply following their gut instincts.”
