The Kitty Cut

Inspired by Crystal’s dear friend Kitty, “The Kitty cut” is a free haircutting service offered to those courageous men and women undergoing or preparing for chemo therapy. In Kitty’s words “Crystal has been so supportive throughout my breast cancer journey. She has made the experience fun, whether it’s a shave, shampoo or help with a wig. I always leave in a much brighter mood after visiting the salon.” Hairdressers Unite is passionate about the Kitty cut and invites you to make the services we provide a fun and supportive part of your cancer journey.
