Recap: Fearless Beauty Fundraiser, Cutler Salon SoHo


This past Monday (10/20), Cutler Salon, including founder Rodney Cutler and head stylist, Rachel Bodt, co-hosted the evening with the women of the hour, Heather Packer, founder of the new charity: Fearless Beauty. The inspirational question of the evening from Packer was, "What would you do if you weren't afraid?" Her answer, after much soul searching, was Fearless Beauty, which will mentor and train underprivileged girls in India within a 3-month program teaching them the trade of hair styling, ultimately empowering them to earn a sustainable income and improve their quality of life.

Packer’s motivation to launch Fearless Beauty and leave home for months came during her last trip to Rishikesh in the spring of 2014. “One day I asked myself what I would do if I was not afraid. This program was the answer,” Packer said. “I knew I had a responsibility to myself and the vision to see what was possible. As it turns out, with a strong vision, there is also strong support in seeing it come true.”

Cutler Salon stylists hosted a fundraiser in which they donated their time to give blowouts on a donation basis and curate a luxe silent auction which raised $13,000, surpassing Packer's $10,000 goal! Packer will head to Rishikesh, India for the inaugural class in early 2015.
