Two celebrity hairdressers unite across the world to raise awareness and money for mental health charity Mind, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Patrick and Scarlet, although both extremely talented and professional stylists, have both battled with mental health issues from a very young age. Only recently have they opened up and shared their highs and lows.
Having never met and only becoming close social media contacts through the love of their work, they discovered they shared many of the same friends and ex colleagues. "What a small world!" they both add to their comments.
They have built an extremely special and supportive friendship for each other during the pandemic and jointly put this beach haircut idea together to help lift hairstylists around the world.
Mullets for Mind is to share a sense of freedom, creativity and release with an added plea of raising money for Mind, Patrick and Scarlets chosen favourite charity that helps so many people daily with their mental health!
