With so many of us facing new and ongoing challenges this year due to the pandemic, taking care of our mental health is more important than ever. 

Black Dog Institute have been at the forefront of mental health research since 1985 and are inviting hair salons and barbers to get involved in fundraising with the Mullets for Mental Health campaign this September.

“One in five people experience mental health issues in any given year and sadly up to 60 per cent of people don’t seek support for those issues," says Black Dog Institute Fundraising Manager, Evan Jackson. "We want everyone to get on board with this campaign, help us to raise funds for a good cause and put smiles back on the faces of the nation in doing so.”

The mullet is an undeniably Aussie hairstyle and we've already seen these textured chops making a comeback this year! Salons can participate in this campaign by donating proceeds from their mullet cuts from September 1-30. Businesses like Hunter Barbershop in Geelong are choosing to donate $10 from every mullet cut and $1 from every other service and product.
