Scholarship Honoring Beauty Legend Vidal Sassoon Kicks Off

by CurlStylist on Friday, August 8th, 2014

The Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship Program - Basic provides 50% tuition scholarships ($10,000) to individuals aspiring to work as a hairstylist. The application simply requires a one-to-three-minute video or an online “inspiration board” that shares the applicant’s passion for the beauty industry. Ten winners will be selected by a judging panel comprised of the nation’s top hairstylists along with an online “vote” component. The competition is administered by the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, a 501(c3) initiative of the American Association of Cosmetology Schools. Wella (the Salon Professional Division of P&G) funds the scholarships that celebrate the legacy of hairstylist Vidal Sassoon.

Ron King Foundation Awards Major Cosmetology Scholarship

Ron King

We were honored to be invited to the Ron King Salon Grand Opening on Sunday night at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, TX. The Style King wanted to share his success with the entire city by throwing a major soiree and runway show with NY designer, Thuy. To open the show, INOA by L’Oreal Paris had four models including their signature fiery red head, with insane texture and vibrant colors.

The one reason we were all there was to honor The Ron King Foundation’s scholarship winner, Briana Flores. King’s Foundation has a goal to directly influence young cosmetology students. Not only did he hand over $25,000 in scholarship funds, but he also promised to mentor the student throughout their career.

The entire event went off without a hitch, and we can’t wait to see what this super-stylist has up his sleeve for the future. We wish all the best of luck to the new Ron King Salon in the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin.
