We know we’re lucky. We do a job that we love and spend our days making people feel great. That’s why we are committed to do our bit for people and animals that aren’t quite so fortunate.
Janet was proud to be the UK Ambassador for Schwarzkopf Professional’s Shaping Futures initiative.
In the challenging and rewarding role Janet led hairdressing teams teaching hairdressing skills to under-privileged children in Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata in India, Amman in Jordan and the Philippines.
Schwarzkopf Shaping Futures is a social initiative that sends UK hairdressers to train orphans and disadvantaged children in hairdressing skills.
During the training programme, prospective employers from the surrounding areas are invited into the village to see the young people demonstrate their skills and hopefully offer them a future in hairdressing.
Following the success of the initial programmes in Chennai, Bangalore and Kolkata, Janet helped to successfully roll out the programme in Jordan. More recently Shaping Futures was introduced to the Philippines, where Janet arranged for her college friend, salon owner David Charlton, to review the students.
He employed them all after the six-week course.
SOS VILLAGES WORK
In addition to our work with Shaping Futures, we run pamper evenings to raise funds for the SOS Villages.
With a team full of pet lovers, we welcome any donations of blankets, bedding and towels for Stray Aid.
