Professional Pledge to Inclusivity

On behalf of my name and business information provided, I pledge to the following: 

  1. I will do my best to practice a human-first approach to the business of hairdressing and prioritize the well-being of every individual who enters my salon or barbershop, regardless of how they identify.

  2. I will do my best to commit to an ask-first policy, meaning  I will honor and respect everyone’s pronouns by asking my clients how they would like to be addressed, and I will always correct myself with courtesy and sincerity if a genuine error has been made.

  3. I will do my best to use inclusive language throughout all written copy and verbal communication on behalf of my business, including but not limited to: 

    • Forms or questionnaires to be filled in by the client

    • Front desk check-in and check-out formalities 

    • All services, appointments, and consultations

    • All customer service efforts, in general

  4. I will do my best to sustain and communicate my business positioning as being supportive of the LGBTQIA2S+ and contributing towards creating a safer and more positive experience for all.

  5. I will do my best to transition to or maintain a gender-free service menu by establishing pricing based on time and product value. 

  6. I will do my best to adapt more gender-free techniques or shorter hair sculpting options that are non-gender specific, on-trend, and demonstrate an elevated skill set.

  7. I will do my best to offer gender-affirming consultations by eliminating the use of gender or social constructs as a determining factor in their desired hair expression;  I will incorporate affirming, neutral and inclusive language with open-ended questions while respecting everyone’s pronouns.  

  8. I will do my best to work in an environment or space that supports inclusion through design and facilities, including:

    • Gender-free bathrooms with appropriate signage

    • An inclusive ambiance: visible validation and representation through artwork, trade magazines, and public displays of LGBTQIA2S+ support

    • Playlists that refrain from profanity, objectivity, or found to be generally offensive
