MODERN SALON is pleased to bring you inspiring news from our "Giving Guide."

Rosy Salon Software is now in its seventh year of helping hopeful cosmetology students realize their passion of becoming beauty professionals. Providing funds to help cover a portion of their tuition, the Rosy Rewards Scholarship Program carries out the company's belief that there is no better way to give back to the beauty industry than by helping to build the next generation of salon pros.

“Since we kicked off the Rosy Rewards scholarship program in 2016, our company has proudly donated nearly $60,000 in scholarships to first-time cosmetology, barber, and esthetics students throughout North America,” says Rosy Salon Software President Jason Foodman. “We see it as both our honor and our duty to ensure the vitality and sustainability of the professional salon industry. Helping future salon professionals, in our mind, is the best way to do just that.”
