MEDIA RELEASE

December 10th 2020

 

  • Just Cuts launching #Hearts4SANE campaign in salons from December 11th-15th
  • Clients can purchase $1-$2 SANE Australia Blue Hearts which they can sign in salons
  • SANE Australia  is a national charity for people affected by complex mental health issues

Australia’s largest hairdressing franchise Just Cuts is continuing its commitment to supporting the mental wellbeing of Australians with the #Hearts4SANE campaign, launching from December 11th.

The franchise network will be collecting $1-$2 donations in salons across Australia for 5 days to support national mental health charity SANE Australia.

SANE Australia supports people affected by complex mental health issues, and their carers through services including a national freecall help centre with online chat capability and 24/7 moderated online Forums and live chat.

Around 5 million Australians are affected by complex mental health issues such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which can have an impact on their families, friends and carers.

The Just Cuts #Hearts4Sane campaign aims to raise over $20,000 to assist SANE’s support services through either gold coin or EFTPOS donations.

Clients can purchase a Blue Heart in salons, which they can also sign and write a message on to show their support. The hearts will be placed on salon walls for the 5 day #Hearts4SANE fundraising drive.

Just Cuts CEO, Amber Manning, said Stylists will also wear blue to raise awareness for SANE Australia.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is driving a spike in demand for mental health services, so Just Cuts salons and Stylists are once again stepping up to support our community and each other,” adds Amber.

“While our Stylists across Australia  are excited to start spreading some Christmas cheer, it’s important to remember this time of year can be incredibly hard for some,” says Amber.

“With people impacted by complex mental health issues dying up to 30 years earlier, access to quality support services that promote mental wellbeing and social connection is critical during Christmas time.”

“No one should suffer in silence when there are specialised services like the SANE Forums and Help Centre with experienced counsellors who are willing to listen and provide support and guidance.”

SANE Peer Ambassador, Dr Dov Degen congratulated Just Cuts on their #Hearts4SANE campaign.

“2020 has undoubtedly been a challenging year for all Australians, but even more so for those of us affected by complex mental health issues.”

Find your local just Cuts salon here and support SANE Australia from December 11th-15th.

More about Just Cuts

Just Cuts is an Australian hairdressing franchise that bridges the gap between a barber and a high end hair salon. With salons in every state of Australia, on both the North and South islands New Zealand and the United Kingdom, it is the largest hairdressing company in the Southern Hemisphere. Based on a fixed price, no appointment system, Just Cuts offers clients affordable haircuts from fully qualified hairdressers and performs over 100,000 Style Cut cuts per week across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Celebrating 30 years in 2020, Just Cuts was the brainchild of Denis McFadden, who turned a simple idea into a business concept that would change the hairdressing industry forever. McFadden ran his first ever “no appointment, $6 Style Cut” promotion at his humble Sydney salon, receiving an outstanding response from clients. It was on this basic fixed price initiative that the idea of Just Cuts was born. The following year, the inaugural Just Cuts salon opened its door to the public. And in 1990, the first Just Cuts franchise opened in the suburb of Engadine, in the south of Sydney, New South Wales. Our brand has continued to expand ever since, with over 220 locations across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

In 2013, Just Cuts launched JUSTICE Professional – a range of salon quality haircare and styling products available exclusively in all our salons at a competitive, affordable price. The JUSTICE Professional line has something for everyone, including everyday shampoos and conditioners, anti-dandruff and dry scalp treatments, toning products, nourishing leave-in treatments and a range of hair styling waxes and sprays.
