Global beauty tech giant Timely is continuing its committed advocacy for diversity and mental health by backing the Australian hair industry in an event set to unveil the industry’s tightly held secrets.

On Monday 18th September, 2023, the ground-breaking event ‘Disrupting the Hair Industry’ will shine a spotlight on the often-overlooked challenges faced by hairstylists, with a significant emphasis on mental health, substance abuse and addiction.

This event, initiated by industry leaders Sheridan Shaw (Mamawest), Kyra Kearney, Ash Wuillemin (Tkay Studio), and Stuart Bane (Stuart Bane Colour), is not a gathering to discuss trends and techniques – it’s a powerful movement that seeks to address the pressing issues within the hair industry, and Timely is leading the charge.

Known for its cutting-edge appointment software tailored for small businesses in the hair and beauty sector, Timely has always been a champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

The company’s involvement in ‘Disrupting the Hair Industry’ is a testament to their unwavering commitment to the well-being of the industry and its professionals, demonstrating their role extends beyond beauty tech solutions.

Timely’s ANZ Marketing Manager Leonie Cranney says: “We saw this event as a natural alignment, and we (Timely) are really proud to be partnering because our commitment to our customers and clients’ well-being is at the core of our mission… Beyond offering a booking tool for the beauty and hair industries, we take pride in providing an abundance of educational tools and resources covering a wide range of topics. These resources are designed to support our customers in navigating through a multitude of significant challenges, including those related to mental health.”

In a world where trendy hairdos come and go, Timely continues to stand as a pillar of support for the Australian hairdressing industry, proving that their commitment transcends this event – it’s about the people, their well-being, and a brighter, more inclusive future for all.

‘Disrupting the Hair Industry’ is also paying it forward, with 50% of ticket sales being directed towards the Black Dog Institute who are dedicated to advancing mental health research and support.
