Hair Cuttery and the National Network to End Domestic Violence Partner to Spread Awareness


Somerville, MA – April 11, 2016 – Hair Cuttery and the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) are joining forces for Hair Cuttery’s spring Share-A-Haircut program. On Monday and Tuesday, May 2-3, for every haircut purchased at any of the Hair Cuttery salons in New England, including the salon in Somerville, a free haircut certificate will be donated to a victim of domestic violence in the community through NNEDV’s member programs.


“Our Share-A-Haircut program and the work of NNEDV are both incredibly impactful causes,” said Dennis Ratner, CEO and founder of Hair Cuttery. “Together, we are aiming to spread awareness about the hardships and injustices of domestic violence, while pampering and comforting those affected.”


Through the partnership, Hair Cuttery and NNEDV will work closely to distribute thousands of free haircut certificates to individuals affected by domestic violence, including women, children and men.


“It is essential to be a voice for survivors who have been silenced by domestic violence,” says Kim Gandy, NNEDV President and CEO. “We are thrilled that Hair Cuttery is rising against violence and standing with survivors. This positive impact is two-fold—survivors have the opportunity to get pampered and relax amid the chaos that abuse brings, and they also save money on a service that they might not be able to afford—aiding in their financial empowerment.”


2016 marks the 17th year of Share-A-Haircut, with the program already having donated more than 85,000 certificates to the homeless in February. Hair Cuttery has an established history of charitable giving that has supported a range of local and national causes including: St. Baldrick’s Foundation, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society and Girls on the Run.



The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that serves as the leading national voice for domestic violence victims and their allies. NNEDV’s membership is comprised of all 56 state and territorial coalitions against domestic violence, including over 2,000 local programs. NNEDV has been advancing the movement against domestic violence for 25 years, having led efforts among domestic violence advocates and survivors in urging Congress to pass the landmark Violence Against Women Act of 1994.
