Unfortunately, hair tools don’t last forever. Like anything else, with wear and tear, it cannot function the way it used to when you first bought it. But there’s something that you can Canadian beauty retailer, Trade Secrets/Glamour Secrets, is hosting its 10th annual “Give & Take” hair appliance trade until September 23rd, which benefits local women’s charities and shelters, and we at Divine could not be happier to support this cause!

This is the best opportunity to clean out old hair tools you don’t use anymore while paying it forward and doing your part to help fellow women in need. Taking the time to donate your old “junk” to a woman who is trying to make a fresh start in life will give you a much needed boost with the summer winding down.

What exactly is “Give & Take”?

The campaign calls on consumers to bring in their gently used hairstyling appliances such as curling irons, blow dryers and flat irons, to any Trade Secrets/Glamour Secrets location. In the spirit of paying it forward, Trade Secrets/Glamour Secrets will donate the appliances to women’s shelters and charities across Canada that offer support and shelter for women and their children escaping violence. As a thank you, customers can take 50% off select hot tool purchases from salon professional brands like BaBylissPRO, Hot Tools and GS Professional.

This is an important cause for Trade Secrets, as they have always believed in women helping women. Their Give & Take program is allowing us to give back to communities by helping women who have become victims of abuse, poverty, mental illness etc. They want to educate their customers and staff about the importance of paying it forward. Even the smallest of acts, such as donating a hair appliance, can give women the tools they may need to feel confident both inside and out! This initiative was created from this inspiration, and for the 10th year in a row, has helped dozens of shelters, charities and community centers with hundreds of beauty appliances all over the country.
