Beauty Changes Lives Launches Scholarship Competition

Posted: June 13, 2012

The Beauty Changes Lives Enrolled Student Scholarship Competition launched Friday, June 8, providing an opportunity for beauty school students to learn from industry icons in hair, nails, esthetics and celebrity grooming.

Students enrolled in an American Association of Cosmetology Schools member school can review complete competition details and enter the competition.

Each winner will receive a day of mentoring with an industry icon along with a $500 travel allowance. Mentors include: Ted Gibson, celebrity hairstylist; Jan Arnold, co-founder and style director of CND; Howard Murad, MD, renowned dermatologist and published author; and Diana Schmidtke, makeup artist and grooming consultant to many of Hollywood’s leading men.

Four mentoring experiences will be awarded—two to students pursuing a career as a hairstylist, one to a student pursuing a career in nail care and one to a student pursuing a career in esthetics. Winners will be announced during the Cosmetology Educators of America (CEA) Convention, July 27–30, in Orlando.

A judging panel comprised of industry experts will select finalists and winners. Finalists will be selected based on their passion for the industry and the number of online votes their application submissions (one-to-three minute video or essay) receive. Videos and essays must answer the question: How does beauty change lives, and how will you change lives as a beauty and wellness professional?
