close formula

Education is the rocket fuel that will launch your career. The folks at Hairdressers at Heart know this to be true, which is why they established the Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship Competition. Best of all, entries are now being accepted for the Spring 2015 competition, with “Basic” scholarships and “Advanced” scholarships will be awarded to deserving pros and students.


“Basic” winners will receive 50 percent of beauty school tuition (up to $10,000), while “Advanced” winners will be awarded a five-day course at a Sassoon Academy in North America (up to $5,000, including travel, lodging and course fees).


“Throughout his career, Vidal Sassoon was an advocate and champion for ongoing education,” says Wella North America CEO, Sal Mauceri. “This competition provides an opportunity for us to honor his legacy through the lift of education.”


The Spring competition is part of a $1.5 million dollar scholarship donation from Wella’s Hairdressers at Heart that runs through 2017. Winners will be selected based on their written or video applications explaining how they plan to change lives through a career in the beauty and wellness industry.


Entrants’ applications will be evaluated by a panel of judges representing some of the most accomplished names in the industry. “The competition provides a wonderful opportunity for students and professionals to share their passion for beauty with some of the industry’s most revered names,” says Lynelle Lynch, President of the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation.
