Domestic Abuse Resistance Team Community Advocate Terrie Queen Autrey, left, reviews materials with Rachel Howard, hair stylist at Gallery Salon. The local salon is partnering with DART to hold a free domestic violence training event for salon professionals at 10 a.m. Aug. 31 at First National Bank.
"Many women who are abused by their intimate partners seldom go anywhere alone. Their hair appointments might be the one exception," Autrey said. "This brief training will offer information on signs of abuse and what the stylist might say to the client they believe may be in danger."
