Shedding locks for a good cause

Progresif is teaming up with local barbers for Buzzcuts for a Good Cause as part of the annual Movember movement to raise awareness on men’s health issues.

Buzzcuts for a Good Cause will provide free haircuts to charity bodies, such as Pusat Ehsan Al-Ameerah Al-Hajjah Maryam and Children’s Cancer Foundation (YASKA), in collaboration with barbershops such as Snips Barbershop, Barberku.BN. The first of the events took place on November 1 with Pusat Ehsan, where over 20 people had their hair cut at Progresif headquarters. The event proceeded to November 8 at the Community Development Centre, Kampong Bolkiah where almost 50 people dropped by.

“We received a lot of positive feedback on our collaboration and it is great that we can bring this experience to the community and see what local barbers have to offer,” said Progresif Head of Brand Strategy Hafiza binti Mohamad.
