Justice and Soul Foundation co-founder Matthew Fairfax is a Seattle salon owner who is now working full time helping the victims of human trafficking to get the job skills necessary to support themselves and help them to restart their lives. Last year's Fashion SOULstice runway hair event raised more than $47,000 that funded the building of a salon, beauty school, and scholarships for students in Cambodia.

“We’ve accomplished so much since the first Fashion SOULstice last April,” explained Justice and Soul co-founder Matthew Fairfax. “We’ve opened the Kate Korpi Salon and Academy, and graduated the first class of students from Phase 1 of training. This second annual event will be an opportunity for us to raise money to further the mission of the Academy, enroll additional students, and encourage salon and spa professionals to consider joining us in Cambodia to help educate our students. We can’t wait to share the news of our accomplishments and plans for the next 12 months.”

Fashion SOULstice will feature Chateau St. Michelle Wines, a signature cocktail drink, appetizers, a silent auction with donated items form area galleries and more. Salons across the country are now raising money for Justice and Soul, international companies such as Moroccan Oil, Dermalogica and Davines Hair Care are donating cash and products (over $35,000), and Paul Mitchell (through the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation) donated $25,000 last year to support the building of the salon and academy.
