Stacey is extending on research she conducted for her Honours Thesis for Bachelor of Psychological Science(Hons), with her supervisors Professor Anna Chur-Hansen and Professor Paul Delfabbro. Her research has a focus on hairdressers as informal caregivers to their clientele; based on the theory of social support. This revealed the topics clients tell their hairdresser, including disclosing distressing content about domestic violence and mental health problems. This reseach also gave insight into how hairdressers respond to client disclosures and how hairdressers feel about being social supports for their clients. Stacey's PhD research follows from these findings, taking a mixed method approach to explore hairdressers, barbers and client perspectives on social support; including benefits and risks. Stacey is also a qualified hairdresser providing a unique research perspective.
