The Skinny on Skin


A skin cancer education program for hair and beauty professionals.
The Skinny on Skin is an educational campaign focused on early detection and prevention of melanoma utilizing beauty industry professionals. As one of the only professionals to closely examine scalps on a regular basis, stylists are in a unique position to spot melanoma on a client’s head and neck long before anyone else. The Skinny on Skin will give stylists the tools to save lives. Hair styles change. Changing a life lasts forever.
