Our TASB Cut-a-Thon is one of many highlighted events developed by The Association of Stylists and Barbers. Last year, hundreds of TASB volunteers from near and far became TASB volunteers by registering HERE , “liking” our Facebook Fan Page, and giving a cut to Autism. This year why don’t you join us? Put yourself on the map! Check out how the many stylists and barbers are participating. You can keep it simple by giving a cut for Autism or jazz it up by having a festivity.

How awesome it is to see how TASB is growing across the country and along the way meeting others with the same desire, to help our communities! SeveralTASB volunteers hung out during the Juneteenth festivities in Atlanta. We were creating awareness for our TASB Cut-a-Thon for Autism, August 29 & 30 and that we did!! Dawn King and I met the media crew for the festival. Among them was a very talented lady, Valerie Fletcher. She knows a group of stylists and barbers that have an organization similar to ours, they are located in Vancouver Washington. Well with todays tech stuff and her savvy talent she had to get us connected. I was heading to the Las Vegas hair show the next week and was so excited to be able to connect in person with Derek and Regina Thompason, founders of Hands of Favor whose purpose is to build relationships which in turn allow us to hear the stories of those we serve, and from there we can utilize the resources of our Friends and Partners to connect the people with the necessary services that will help them get their lives back on track to become responsible, productive members of their respective communities with a desire to pay it forward. Thus, everyone benefits perpetually.
To meet our colleagues who use there time and talent for “Doing Good” in their community is powerful. I can’t wait to see what takes place in our future as TASB and Hands of Favor join forces. Our stories will be told as we keep readers informed through our social media sites including Facebook, blogs, and in our upcoming issue of Recognition with Style magazine, We Cut For Good!!
Salons and barbershops are the heart of the community. I enjoy finding out what kind of community out reach goes on throughout the states and bring everybody’s ideas to our community.
Hairoics is a locally owned and operated business unlike many others. Hairoics believes in giving back to the community. They take part in events such as,
Get Pumped for Pink 10K race to raise funds for breast cancer awareness.
Go Pink for the Cure wherein they gave donors of a $15 contribution towards breast cancer research a pink hair extension.
OBX Hospital Cancer Resource Center’s Look Good…Feel Better Program.
And of course, local area schools can always count on Hairoics for their support throughout the school year.
In addition to local programs, Hairoics also supports national charities such as Relay for Life, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the American Cancer Society.
We all care about the community we serve, Let’s get involved and make a difference in our neighbors lives.
Any stylist or barber who has given haircuts to children or adults with autism know what a challenge it can be. Many may avoid people with autism and that creates a challenge for parents and loved ones when it comes time for a needed haircut or style.
Autism Speaks has teamed up with some caring folks in New England and created “The Hair Cutting Training Guide” TASB volunteers to inform you with techniques and hints on how to make a possible difficult situation go much smoother.
There are many organizations out there that raise awareness about autism and stylist and barbers can take part in this by joining forces with TASB (The Association of Stylists and Barbers).
This Is A Raw And Honest Look At What It Means To Be The Father Of A Son With Autism
In the popular SoulPancake YouTube channel series “The Fatherhood Project,” filmmaker Corbyn Tyson explores what it means to be a good dad today.
This poignant episode features Matt Oakes, whose son Liam was recently diagnosed with autism and verbal apraxia. Matt talks about what fatherhood means for a son with autism, and about the humility and self-forgiveness he’s learned since Liam’s diagnosis.
This is a raw, honest look at the everyday heroism of those affected by autism. You’ll want to share it with others in your community.

What are you thankful for today?? I’m thankful for My Mother!! **Happy Mother’s Day to All the Mothers!!** A mother is the one who loves you unconditionally, even though she might not like you at the moment. A mother stays awake worrying cause she cares for you more than you’ll ever know. A mother will nurture you in a way that only she knows how. A mother will put a band aid on your ouchie, cook dinner for you, help you with homework… all while talking on the phone!! She is the Original Multi Tasker!! There are many people who fill these shoes… Even a Non-Mom will be a Mother Figure to someone else. And maybe you have been blessed by having many Mothers!! So this goes out to All the Mothers, StepMothers, Aunts, GrandMothers, NonMoms and the Fathers who are like a Mom… May your day be filled Love, Laughter, Peace and Happiness!! Enjoy your day and Every day Loving on your kids!! Happy Mother’s Day!
