  • Mission

    We believe all people deserve an education and an opportunity to thrive.

    An Educational Beauty Program

    "The future belongs to those who believe

    in the beauty of their dreams."

    ~ Eleanor Roosevelt


    Shear Love International is designed to educate and empower people by providing an education in hair design. Equipping people with vocational knowledge, financial training, and personal development will give them an opportunity to support their families in a dignified way. Our full spectrum, faith-based, educational beauty school program will give them the chance to succeed and focus forward on their future.


    The Program

    “Education is the most powerful weapon which 

    you can use to change the world.”

     ~ Nelson Mandela

    • Haircutting, Color, and Styling


    • Personal and Professional Financial Budgeting


    • Knowledge in Hygiene and Personal Development


    • Art Mentoring and Empowerment


    • Daily Devotion and Disciplining


    • Faith Based Counseling and Mentorship

  • "All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one."


    ~Malala Yousafzai

  • Vision

    When a girl receives an education, she will impact the world.

    Our talented and knowledgeable educators have worked so hard to establish the curriculum and daily lesson plans our students get to learn from. We are honored to have their wisdom and experience pour into our program and our students.

    Beauty & Barber School Kits

    We work hard so our students receive high quality tools and products to learn with. We are so grateful to companies such as Milady, Kevin Murphy, GHD, Triple Thread, and so many others who have generously given to our students.

    Training Salon

    Our students get to work in an upscale safe salon. It is because of the generosity of so many that we were able to provide them with a safe space that is warm, welcoming, and freeing.

  • Let's Light the Night

    "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." ~John 1:5


    One night here could easily look like another's worst nightmare. Night after night, hope can slip further and further away. Our outreach team visits various red light districts in Thailand on a weekly basis. Our goal is to build comfortable relationships with pure intentions in an atmosphere of acceptance. In order to remain involved in conversation, we are required to "buy" their time. In order to engage in any outside ministry opportunity, we are required to “buy” them for the entire night.


    Help us spread light and see freedom made possible to the many hearts exploited through the sex industry in Thailand.
