Concord, NH - Attorney General Kelly Ayotte is getting a haircut today to help fight domestic violence in New Hampshire. It's part of a program called "Cut it Out," which is training hair stylists to recognize the signs of domestic and sexual abuse, and help guide victims to sources of help in the Granite State. Ayotte says they're enlisting hair stylists because customers confide in them.

"I'm a regular customer of my hair stylist; she hears a lot about my life, so I think that hair stylists are an appropriate front line of defense in getting the word out as to how you can get services if you are a victim of domestic violence."

Ayotte says she's stepping up to show New Hampshire is committed to prosecuting perpetrators and putting an end to domestic violence.

"Absolutely we want domestic violence to stop. It's my hope sincerely that we don't have any more victims of domestic violence, certainly no more murder victims; but, that being said, victims need to come forward, and to know that we will support them if they do come forward."

The event kicks off New Hampshire's participation in the national "Cut it Out" program sponsored by The National Cosmetology Association. Organizers say stylists see hundreds of clients regularly every four to six weeks, and those clients tell them things they don't even tell family members. Seven no-cost educational sessions are planned for stylists across the state over the next two months, and they're also planning a "cut-a-thon" against domestic violence in time for the fall styling season.
