Determined To Be Kind

Since the devastating passing of Caroline Flack we’re all trying to do our bit to be kind. Q Hair & Beauty salon in particular are determined to promote the importance of kindness.

On 27th February, the multi-award winning business devoted their time to raise money for mental health charity, The Samaritans. The Chichester salon raised awareness of the “be kind” culture by collecting donations from the team and their clients, as well as selling some delicious cakes.

Q’s sister salons in Donnington and Midhurst also jumped on board and did their bit to support the charity too.

“I personally feel very strongly about protecting our own team from the
challenges of Facebook and Instagram,” said Q managing director Dawn
Lawrence Grant.

“Social media isn’t going anywhere and we can’t stop it, in fact as a business
we need it. But cyber bullying is sadly becoming a bi-product of the benefit the
social media revolution has brought us.”

“How can we protect our team and ourselves from it? I don’t have any of the
answers except to say we are aware of it, we are not ignorant of it, we
educate to prevent, we educate to provide support – what we can’t educate is
how to be kind.”

“Fortunately, although social media and our business thrive and depend on
image-conscious guests, we also naturally breed kindness in our culture at Q.
Kindness is rewarded, celebrated and encouraged amongst our team and we
are proud to be doing our bit in raising money for The Samaritans.”
