The Old Clare Hotel’s bottle shop exhibition space will become a barber shop for one day only with all proceeds going to Might & Mane, a mental health support service.
Might & Mane is a mental health support service in Sydney, schooling Aussie barbers on safe conversation and arming them with resources to help guide and encourage healthy conversation around mental stability with their clients. As we all know, the hairdresser’s chair is a bit of a "confessional moment" for many, and Might & Mane's support means that more and more people are encouraged to talk about how they feel and then armed with touch points for seeking help if they need it.
It's a great initiative, and one that The Old Clare Hotel is keen to support this R U OK? Day (September 12) with The Old Clare Hotel transforming the bottle shop exhibition space (on Broadway) into a barber shop for one day only, with all proceeds going to this amazing charity. The Clare bar will also be donating 5% of all proceeds that day towards Might & Mane, so if you can't get in for a haircut, you can come down and show your support from 12pm and throughout the night.

Where: The Bottle Shop at The Old Clare Hotel, 1 Kensington St, Chippendale (on Broadway side)
Cost of haircut: $40 with ALL proceeds going to Might & Mane

About Might & Mane
& Mane is a mental health support service distributed through Aussie
We put our barbers through a three-hour workshop session where they learn skills of safe conversation, and about existing help services they can refer clients on to.
Our barbers aren’t psychologists, they’re regular people encouraging empowered conversations and normalising help-seeking behaviour and they’re an awesome touch point for blokes.
Currently based in Sydney, but with big plans to move into other cities and rural areas, Might & Mane wants to ensure all Aussie men are checking in on their mental health as often as they get their haircut.
