American Crew

“I chose Patrick Chai as American Crew’s NextGen artist because he is a hairstylist who truly cares about expanding his art. Competitive with his work, he has already set goals to be an educator and improve his photography and grooming skills for editorial sets. As a mentor, an All Star for American Crew, and a well versed Lead Stylist in runway design, I feel like it is a perfect match for me to help polish a facet that Patrick is less familiar with. I hope to encourage his creative and competitive edge, to which I can relate, and inspire him to keep reaching for the vast opportunities available in our phenomenal field.” –Sarah Adams

The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation (BCL), in conjunction with Cosmetologists Chicago (CC), announced that the 2015 Legacy Award honoring Pivot Point International's Founder Leo Passage will be held on Saturday, March 21, 2015, in the Modern Wing at the Art Institute of Chicago. The evening will kick off America’s Beauty Show (March 21-23, 2015, McCormick Place, Chicago).

The event will posthumously honor the contributions that Passage made to the beauty industry and his vision for cultivating NEXTGEN talent. The award also serves as a fundraiser for BCL’s scholarship and mentoring programs.

The centerpiece of the evening will be an after-dark presentation by event sponsors entitled “Trilogy of Beauty.” Beauty brands will present their interpretations of the Trilogy of Beauty by their NEXTGEN talents, who will be coached by master artist mentors.

Each team with the vision spearheaded by NEXTGEN, will showcase models representing Street Wear, Underground and Avant Garde/Haute Couture looks, epitomizing the Trilogy of Beauty. The evening’s gold sponsors include American Crew, Aquage, CND, DevaCurl, Hattori Hanzo Shears, Keune, Matrix, Mizani, Moroccanoil, Redken, TIGI and Wella.
