This award will be given annually to an individual in the beauty industry who has demonstrated a vision for beauty that follows in the tradition and imagination established by Vidal Sassoon. "We chose Vidal Sassoon as our recipient for the very first year, not only because he is a legend, but because of what he means to our industry," said Lynelle Lynch, BCL President and President of Bellus Academy. "It is BCL's mission to inspire artists to give back to their community, inspire future artists, and create a high level of respect, which is what Vidal Sassoon has done so profoundly. With BCL's scholarship and mentoring programs, we hope to create many more stylists like Vidal Sassoon."
On hand to help present the award were two of BCL’s board members Reuben Carranza, North American CEO, Managing Director, P&G Salon Professional and Robert Passage, Global Ambassador Pivot Point International.
