Millions of people sit in salon chairs every day, speaking with their hairdressers about their lives. This is why Hairdressers Against AIDS was created as a global advocacy program that aims to empower the entire industry of hairdressers and salon professionals to use their unique relationship with their clients and communities to become a resource to interact, educate and help prevent the spread of HIV. Hairdressers Against AIDS aims to get people to reduce their risk, get tested for HIV, and talk about HIV with friends and loved ones.

After launching in the U.S. one year ago, Hairdressers Against AIDS is taking their message one step further by engaging students and creating a strong voice from a younger generation to help spread the important HIV/AIDS awareness message. Professional stylists and colorists across the country will take the Hairdressers Against AIDS message to top, local beauty schools on World AIDS Day 2011 while also encouraging additional salons and consumers to join the conversation, arm themselves with prevention information, and to Use Your Voice, Use Your Power, For A Beautiful World Without AIDS, by visiting
