Shear Haven is an initiative of the YWCA Nashville & Middle TN, co-founded by Nashville-based salon owner and stylist Susanne Post. As a survivor of domestic violence, Susanne is committed to educating the beauty industry on the signs of abuse as stylists are in a unique position to recognize the signs and potentially help a client get to safety.
This effort has extended to passing a law in Tennessee to bring the life-saving training to all licensed cosmetologists. The Shear Haven training video equips stylists with:
- Knowledge and resources to recognize the signs of domestic violence
- Guidance on how to successfully navigate conversations with clients who may be in danger
- Tools and resources that can help your client get to safety
What’s Included In The Training?
This training will consist of a free 20 minute training session followed by a short three question quiz. After completion, you will receive a personalized certificate of achievement from Merits. Please keep the certificate for your permanent records.
