Matter of Trust

We have an incredible opportunity to help the planet just by doing the same thing we do every day - sculpt hair. As you are already aware, the oil spill in the Gulf has swiftly reached devastating proportions. Clean up efforts have begun and there is a way we can all pitch in.

Matter of Trust (www.matteroftrust.org) is an organization that collects human hair, animal fur, and nylons from which they create hair mats and booms that absorb oil. Federico is partnering with Matter of Trust in order to bring attention to their efforts and create awareness among our students and in the salon industry.

We will be a collection site for hair and Federico will handle all the shipping. Just bring us your hair and we'll take care of the rest! We will be accepting hair at the Beauty Boutique inside Federico on Friday's between the hours of 10am-6pm.

Or submit your hair on your own:

Directions for how you can take action and donate hair are outlined below. We have also included labels to attach to your hair donation box and informational flyers to help educate and raise awareness within your organization. Finally, you will also find a customizable press release attached. This way you can announce your efforts in your local market.
