Wella Funds Sassoon Scholarships Through 2017

December 3, 2013

Ten aspiring hairstylists and 10 licensed beauty professionals have been awarded the Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship by the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, continuing a commitment by Wella, the salon professional division of P&G, to fund 200 scholarships between 2013 and 2017.

The $1.5 million scholarship grant established by Wella’s Hairdressers at Heart program and administered by the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation honors the legacy of the late Vidal Sassoon and his belief in continual learning throughout the professional hairstylist’s career.

“Vidal elevated the perception of hairdressing as a career, while his commitment to creativity, craftsmanship and professional drive challenged those in the industry to continually learn and enhance their craft,” said Reuben Carranza, CEO of Wella North America. “The scholarship applications submitted in this competition shared many inspiring testimonies of how Vidal’s work continues to inspire individuals a half-century after he revolutionized the industry.”
