SALONS STYLE FOR LIFE

Monday, 10th August 2015by culture HQ

IT’S NO SECRET THAT HERE AT CULTURE WE’RE A SUCKER FOR ANY KIND OF ‘HAIR WITH HEART’ THEMED STORY, WHICH IS WHY WE WERE SO EXCITED TO SEE STYLE FOR LIFE BACK AGAIN IN 2015! NOW IN IT’S THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR – AND NOT TO MENTION MOST SUCCESSFUL TO DATE! – THE ELEVEN AUSTRALIA AND HAGAR INITIATIVE ONCE AGAIN SET ABOUT USING HAIRDRESSING AS A WEAPON IN THE FIGHT TO END SLAVERY IN CAMBODIA, VIETNAM AND AFGHANISTAN.

Sunday July 26th saw the 55 participating salons swing open their doors and usher in as many guests as possible, with all salon proceeds raised donated to help those in need. The 2015 initiative saw a whopping $59,000 raised for Hagar, the not for profit organization dedicated to restoring the lives of victims of severe human rights abuse.

Hagar Ambassador (and Academy-award winning actress) Rachel Griffiths spent the day at Luxe Cutters in Point Cook with ELEVEN’s Co-Creative Director Joey Scandizzo, ABC 774’s Libby Gorr and Travis Cloke of Collingwood Football Club. Fellow Style for Life Ambassador (and rising star in her own right) Demi Harman attended the Joey Scandizzo Salon in South Yarra as well as Uva Salon in Prahan in honour of the occasion.

Mining magnate Andrew Forest was also on board in 2015, offering to match the amount raised by the highest earning salon on the day – congratulations to the Murphy Gozzard Hair Community, who managed to raise $11,000 for the cause!
