As an artist, hairstylist, business legend and humanitarian, Sassoon elevated the craft of hairdressing while maintaining an unrelenting focus on lifelong learning throughout his career journey. “We are so honored to celebrate Vidal Sassoon’s commitment to excellence and his passion for beauty and wellness education,” said Lynelle Lynch President of the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation. “And we are awed by the generous support Hairdressers at Heart has invested in supporting NextGen hairstylists.”

Added Sal Mauceri, Senior Vice President North America Professional Beauty and Global Nail at Coty Beauty: “It’s our honor to invest in the education and continued learning for students and professionals who are the future stars of our industry.

The Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship Program was established in 2012 with a five-year, $1.5M commitment generously funded by Wella’s Hairdressers at Heart initiative. The “Basic” and “Advanced” scholarships celebrate Vidal Sassoon’s lifelong commitment to professional education. Nearly 200 individuals have been awarded since the program’s inception.

Prior to the creation of the Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship Program, the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation honored Vidal Sassoon as the inaugural recipient of the Legacy award – an award that recognizes an industry icon for their commitment to lifelong professional education. Sassoon’s daughter, Eden Sassoon, accepted the Legacy award presented to her father posthumously in 2012.

The Vidal Sassoon Professional Beauty Education Scholarship Competition winners are selected by a panel of industry judges who consider applicants’ passion for the craft of hairstyling and their vision for using a career in beauty to change lives.
