Who would of thought that a salon visit could help end slavery? On July 26, over 60 salons across Australia took part in Style for Life. Stylists volunteered to open up for business so all the funds raised can go to Hagar. A charity that restores the lives of survivors of slavery and human rights abuses with long-term recover programs including counselling, education and career training. With the support of our Style for Life Ambassadors Demi Harman, Joey Scandizzo and Rachel Griffiths, we wanted this Style for Life Day to be the biggest yet…
“When I heard that hairdressings was the number one career these brave women wanted to learn, I couldn’t help but get involved.”
While Luxe Cutters were fitting in as many clients as they could, Libbi Gorr hosted her Sunday Breakfast Program live from the salon. Joined by Style for Life Ambassadors, Rachel Griffiths and Joey Scandizzo; Hagar Australia CEO, Kate Kennedy and Collingwood All Star, Travis Cloke, the panel talked all things Style For Life.
“To raise awareness for such a beautiful cause was a real pleasure!”

Meanwhile in NSW, Murphy Gozzard Hair Community were eager to beat last year’s total. With a full team (DJ included) Murphy Gozzard raised $11.000! The total will be enough to provide a year’s worth of hairdressing training to over 30 women.
Throughout Australia salons made their Style for Life Day unique by partnering with businesses, music artists or support from their local media. From Western Australia to North Queensland and everywhere in-between, each Style for Life salon made the day their own.
ELEVEN Australia would like to thank all our Style for Life salons for making the day possible. Another special shout out to everyone who made it down to the salon on the day and believed in making a change bigger than a hairstyle. The final tally will be announced soon on Facebook and Instagram. Stay tuned…
