Welcome to Sty-Lives!

What is Sty-Lives?

Styling Hair & Saving Lives (Sty-Lives) aims to empower and educate hairstylists to detect suspicious skin lesions on the ears, face and scalp of their clients. Participating salons and hairstylists are provided with training materials and resources and are taught how to detect suspicious lesions. The purpose of the project is to help facilitate communication between the client and their healthcare provider, leading to earlier detection of potentially dangerous lesions.
