Welcome to Hair Aid Inc.

Hair Aid Inc. is an Australian non-profit organization that works globally to make a difference and create change by teaching people living in poverty the skill of hair cutting. Once they've been trained people can start their own micro business, cutting hair in their own communities, earning money.

What we do

Hair Aid has 2 main projects: International projects and Hair Aid Community Cuts (HACCs).

Our International projects are where volunteer hairdressers, nail technicians and other passionate volunteers (like you!) join us in teaching slum and street people in developing countries how to cut hair, and perform manicures and pedicures.

Hair Aid Community Cuts (HACCs) program, we send teams of volunteer hairdressers to work with organizations worldwide that support those in our own communities that need a hand.

Shortcuts + Hair Aid Partnership

In January 2020 Shortcuts and Hair Aid partnered together to make it simple for salons to donate directly to Hair Aid’s HACCs project.

Hair Aid Community Cuts (HACCS) is a volunteer-based local community scheme. Our volunteer hairdressers provide free haircuts at local HACCs events at over 70 locations across Australia. 

Through your Shortcuts POS, participating salons can collect $0.50 on top of every sale, to be donated directly to Hair Aid. A HACCS haircut costs as little as $2 – so every 4 cuts your salon does, it will provide a haircut to a local community member in need.


BeauTex + Hair Aid Partnership

Since 2018 BeauTex (formerly Beautique Designs) has supported Hair Aid with recycled capes and uniforms and by sending their team members on projects.

From 2020 BeauTex will provide 10c per sale to support Hair Aid’s work.

This valuable support will enable the continuation of the International projects and enable teams to continue delivering livelihood skill training to those in need.


Through the purchase of all BeauTex products, 10c will be  donated directly to Hair Aid.
