Denman Brush makes it their mission to provide the best and most innovative tools for both salon professionals. Denman also supports Blind Aid Charity in the UK.
The beauty industry has always been and inclusive one. Salon professionals work incessantly to make individuals feel better about themselves by boosting their self-esteem. And Denman Brush is always striving to support social initiatives as well. Their most recent endeavor is to facilitate hairdressing skills for the visually impaired, who obviously face some very specific challenges.
Paying it forward
Denman’s International Business Manager, Martyn Wady recently joined a haircare and styling workshop at Hackney Depot. Headed up by Session Stylist Anna Cafone (@annacafone), this workshop was for a very special group: the blind and partially sighted. Indeed, Blind Aid is London’s oldest sight loss charity. The organisation offers a network of volunteers, community projects and social events. The goal is to deliver meaningful life enhancing aid, skills and experiences across the City. Martyn is also a qualified and experienced hair professional. As part of his commitment to the event and the cause, he was eager to pitch in. Moreover, he brought along lots of tools for the attendees to take away.
Martyn says, “It’s tough to imagine how challenging haircare and styling can be for the blind and partially sighted. I was so pleased to be able to make a contribution to the amazing work that Anna does with Blind Aid. Denman has also worked with the Royal Society for Blind Children. The company offers tools and online support to blind and partially sighted teenagers. However, this is the first in-person event that we have been able to attend and it won’t be the last.”
During the event, Martyn and Anna taught members of the group the tactile differences between the tools. The focus was on using touch to style their hair to their own satisfaction. Martyn says, “It was such an uplifting but also humbling day and I’m looking forward to helping out again soon.”
Making a Splash!
Denman’s most popular brush, the D38 is now available in the ‘Splash’ colourway version. Salon professionals love this brush for its quality build and iconic styling pin design. The D38 detangles, defines curls and push-dries with ease. It also makes it possible to combine speed, comfort and control, saving on precious time.
