Preventing Abuse One Haircut at a Time

October 1st, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Many people will tell their hair dresser things they won’t tell anyone else, and because of that a Tampa hair dresser was honored by the Governor this afternoon at Domestic Violence Awareness ceremonies in Tallahassee.  Belinda Brown came up with the innovative idea to having her hair technicians and students talk with clients about abuse and encourage them to report it when it is happening. Brown hopes spreading the word will make a difference. “I believe that getting out there and getting a lot of people knowledge doing hair..like she said..we know everything and can recognize it, and a lot of the charge with the schools is going out..when we graduate they are going out to the businesses and see people just need to know” says the award winner.

Ms. Brown won an award for the most innovative ideas on preventing domestic violence.
