Join Paul Brown Hawaii in supporting WWP

“Mahalo” means “thank you” in Hawaiian, and Paul Brown Hawaii appreciated the chance to shown its appreciation to the men and women of the U.S. military service through various WWP programs.

PBH CEO Scott Bowers, a former company commander in the Vietnam War, expanded Paul Brown Hawaii's charity efforts by collaborating with Wounded Warrior Project and donating products to the non-profit. His efforts has helped to expand awareness of the WWP within the professional beauty industry through various efforts.

Sharpen Your Shears

Bridge the Gap Between the Haircare Industry and Wounded Warrior Project! Paul Brown Hawaii launches the first Shear Appreciation, a two month-long fundraiser from September 11 through November 11th. The campaign honors service members who risked their lives for the safety and freedom of our country.

Get involved, sharpen your shears and help to raise money for those service members who have returned home with the mental and physical wounds of war. Every effort and donation counts. Whether $5, $10, $25, or $100, each gift makes a huge difference to helping wounded service members and their families.

To further encourage efforts, Paul Brown Hawaii will help you host raffles, cut-a-thons and other fund-raising events by contributing complimentary products to participating salons.

We are challenging ourselves to help WWP reach this vision, but we need your help. Please join our effort and give what you can by donating or register if you're interested in participating in the Shear Appreciation fund-raiser Sept. 11-Nov. 11. Thank you in advance for your support!

Another 320,00 are believed to have experience a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

  • What started as a desire to provide comfort items to wounded service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has grown into a holistic rehabilitative effort to assist warriors with visible and invisible wounds as they recover and transition back to civilian life.
