Paul Mitchell UK is once again supporting breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel! CoppaFeel! was the first breast cancer charity in the UK to create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling a new healthy (boob checking) habit that could one day save their life.
This year, the brand have pledged £5,000 to support their Uni Boob Team text reminder campaign to remind students on campus to check their boobs with a free monthly text, giving any student sign-ups the chance to win over £500 worth of Paul Mitchell products! Not only that but they will be working with the CoppaFeel! Uni Boob Team who raise awareness and educate students in 80 campuses across the country about the importance of looking after their boobs.
