Academy award nominee Rachel Griffiths’ scissor game is getting strong.

Just ask Australian Hairdresser of the year Joey Scandizzo.

The duo clearly hamming it up to promote Hagar Australia’s upcoming Style for Life Day on July 31st.

Style For Life Day on www.engagingwomen.com.au

Hairdressers across Australia have generously donated their time to cut, colour and blow-dry their way through Sunday the 31st as part of Hagar Australia’s Style for Life Day.

Every cent raised will go towards the recovery and economic empowerment of women and children who have survived trafficking and abuse.

I caught up with Hagar Foundation CEO Jo Pride today to learn more:

“Australians can go into their favourite salon, book a cut, blow dry, beard trim, a kid’s cut and 100% of the money will go to Hagar’s work in Cambodia and Afghanistan working with women and children who have survived slavery and trafficking.

Some of the stylists who are working for Style for Life have been to Cambodia and provided training to survivors over there, so they feel really passionate about this cause,” she says.

Number of women and children supported through protection, recovery, economic empowerment and reintegration by the incredible people behind Hagar in Cambodia, Afghanistan and Vietnam last year.


Number of women and children provided with safe accommodation.


Number of counselling sessions for survivors and their families


Date we can all do something easy and practical to help restore a broken life:

JULY, 31st 2016
