  • Dresscode Project is looking to educate and empower hair stylists and barbers to give people haircuts that help them look the way they feel.
  • They envision a world where every hair salon and barbershop is a gender affirming, safer-space for LGBTQ2S+ clients.

“We have worked hard to provide education, events and support to, not only our member salons, but to hairdressers all over the globe looking to create safer spaces in their areas,” says Dresscode Project Founder, Kristin Rankin. “We have built not only our Salon Alliance that houses members globally, but an education curriculum for cosmetology schools, virtual and in-person education for salons, pro-beauty consulting and have even been the guest speaker for hair-related events.”

Rankin says that everything they teach and provide is centered around the fact that hair has no gender.

"It's about haircuts and hairstyles not being for 'men or womem' but about creating shapes, textures and looks built for the person wearing them. Not charging based off gender, but based off skill, time and/or length of hair. Educating salons, stylists and pro-beauty educators on how to create safer environments for all people to feel welcome and celebrated for their unique individuality."
