who we are

We're Sam and Sarah, co-founders of chats and cuts.

We launched our community initiative in 
November 2023 to upskill hairdressers and barbers to have conversations with young people about their mental health during a haircut. 

Through chats and cuts, our passion for social change can empower hair professionals with the skills and confidence to help strengthen a young person's sense of self-worth.
