Milwaukee Salons to Show Support for Domestic Violence Victims

By Anne Moratto | 11/01/2012 10:19:00 AM


The staff of Kirsten Salon in Hartland, Wisconsin, one of the 80 area salons who'll be participating in the Cut It Out cut-a-thon. As a show of support and to raise money for victims in the aftermath of the deadly shooting at Azana Salon, more than 80 Milwaukee area salons and spas plan to come together on November 13, 2012 to raise awareness about the potential tragedies that can stem from domestic violence, which was a key factor in the Azana shooting and other recent salon shootings in Clearwater, Florida, and Seal Beach, California.

Supported by the PBA Foundation's CUT IT OUT program, salons and spas are asked to sign-up to receive complimentary CUT IT OUT materials and donate between 5 percent to 25 percent of sales on November 13th, as well as wear a purple ribbon as a show of support. Other businesses that would like to participate are encouraged to donate a percentage of their sales as well.

Kitty Tierney of Impressions in Mequon, Wisconsin, designed this Tshirt in conjunction with her cut-a-thon. She invites others to 'borrow' the design to make their own or contact her vendor ( if they'd like to order shirts to help raise money for the Azana Fund. "The tremendous support of Milwaukee area salons and spas for this grassroots effort has been amazing. We encourage people to visit a participating salon or spa on November 13 to support the victims of this tragic incident and send a message that domestic violence is not tolerated," states Jan Seybold, Owner of Carenza Color.Cutting.Experience and one of several organizers.

For additional information and to reach area organizers, contact Jan Seybold of Carenza Color. Cutting.Experience at 262-827-1000 or; Dawn Panfil, Owner of Hair and Body Solutions at 262-780-2900 or; or Mary Beth Berns, Owner of Craig Berns Salon Spa at 262-646-7406 or

"As beauty professionals, we hear stories all day long as we work our magic and lend a listening ear. Yet, on some level, we think of them as stories, not true events. So perhaps it doesn't always have the same impact on our emotions. On Sunday, October 21st, 2012, it was our story. It did effect us. While we can't change the horrific events of that day, we can do something about it. We can come together as a beauty profession and help support the hurting families who are left behind. We are all in this together, it could have happened to anyone."
