Here’s a riddle for you – how can you expand your creative skill set and do something good for the world at the same time?

Hair Aid has the answer, raising money for their inspirational tours overseas, where hairdressers teach locals in remote villages the industry skills we so often take for granted, through a series of Look and Learn seminars. These trips all around the world have helped underprivileged villagers gain employment, make money for their families and even pass their skills on to others.


If you don’t have the time to fly out to the Philippines you can still lend a hand, by attending the variety of Look and Learns held around Australia to make money for the cause. The first event was held in Perth, hosted by styling legend Benni Tognini, trichologist Simone Lee and Fashion Week regular Pauline McCabe. A group of award winning barbers, other stylists and makeup artists made the evening an extensive education experience for all attendees.

These evenings will be making their way around the country – starting on September 20th in Newcastle. Wayne Wayniac Pepe from Barbers Empire & Lance Liufau from The Loft will show off their barbering techniques, from fades to actual artwork, turning each attendee into a hair expert.

Next, Melbourne will be treated to featured guest artists Caterina DiBiase from Heading Out, Joe Giampa from Capelli da GG Hair and more to be announced on the 28th of September. In Sydney on October 12th, Philip Barwick from Muse and Stevie English himself will headline an impressive lineup, while Uros Mikic of Kinky Curly Straight will join other artists on stage in Adelaide on November 23rd.

With proceeds benefiting Hair Aid, and therefore people in need thousands of kilometres away, attendees will be doing their philanthropic duty whilst having a fun evening and learning innovative skills in the process. Is there a better way to do good?
