Every Australian’s journey with cancer is unique, but what remains the same is that it is never an easy one. As of 2020, 1 in 3 Australian men and 1 in 4 Australian women will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 75, meaning that the chance of cancer affecting you or someone you know and love is significantly high.
TONI&GUY Australia are proud to support women and men on their journey of fighting cancer.
The Pink Scissors program is a one-of-a-kind initiative to support cancer patients through the emotional
process of hair loss associated with cancer treatment. In just a short 2 years, our TONI&GUY salons have
helped 100’s of clients with specialized hairdressing support and a safe space to help the client transition
through the hair loss stages, and ultimately help maintain a healthy body image throughout this period.
At TONI&GUY we understand that the journey to battling Cancer doesn’t end once chemotherapy ends. The idea that we all feel something about our hair when we look in the mirror is deeply ingrained in us from both a social and biological standpoint. What’s behind this connection we have with our hair is inherited and far-reaching. It is somewhat likely that we are hardwired to feel emotionally connected to our hair. If there is one hair truth we can hold self-evident – it’s a huge part of our identities.
Our Pink Scissor Program goes beyond our clients time in ’battle’. We know and understand that some of our clients need a leading light when it comes to finding a cut, colour and hair care advice that is suited to their journey. Our Pink Scissor Specialists are available every step of the way to help our clients re-adjust their ‘crown’ with honest, thoughtful advice with support every step of the way.
