For the beauty industry itself to continue to be healthy, we must always have an eye out for the next generation of professionals. That is the focus of the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation (BCL), which develops scholarship opportunities and finds mentors for people who want to become salon pros. This fall, CosmoProf is partnering with BCL to make it fun and easy for anyone to help make a difference through a “Licensed to Create” initiative.

 

“We see the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation and their scholarship program as an essential step to developing the next generation of licensed professionals,” says Jen Wilder, vice president of CosmoProf and a BCL board member. “CosmoProf believes in the beauty professional, and we strive to provide education, inspiration, a sense of community and professional products to all those Licensed to Create.”

 

Get involved!

  • During September and October, CosmoProf members who donate at least $5 to BCL at any CosmoProf store checkout or while consulting with a CosmoProf sales consultant will receive a complimentary License to Create tote bag.
  • During November, limited-edition Licensed to Create cosmetic bags will be available for $9.99, and $1 of that will be donated to BCL.
  • All funds raised through these efforts will be matched by CosmoProf, up to $25,000. 
  • Watch for details about Licensed to Create Scholarships that CosmoProf has in the works.

Show further support on social media using #igaveatip and #scholartips. ScholarTips is a donation challenge asking beauty professionals to donate two kinds of “tips”—monetary tips they receive from clients and verbal tips for succeeding in the industry. CosmoProf Brand Ambassador Larissa Love has posted an Instagram video pledging support and challenging her 284,000 followers to join her. 

 

“Not everyone has support when they go to beauty school,” Love notes. “People are told that doing hair is just a hobby, not a career. It’s important to support those who cannot afford school but are passionate about our industry and want to become stylists.”

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.

Eric Jeter rented a salon studio for two and a half years until he realized he missed the camaraderie of other stylists. Lauren Correll joined a JCPenney Salon right out of cosmetology school, and now, as a salon manager, brings her enthusiasm for the company and the profession to her team. Both agree they wouldn’t change the unique combination of independence, teamwork, opportunity and family spirit the company offers for anything.
