While local and national guidelines are enabling salons to re-open, the industry will take time to recover financially.
“With this fundraiser, we want to celebrate and support our industry’s strength and resiliency. This has been a challenging time for salon owners and stylists working behind the chair. One thing that keeps us uplifted is our excitement to reconnect with our clients again. Our survey** showed that our clients’ share in the desire to get back in the salon, and as hairdressers we are also eager to serve them as salons reopen across the country,” says Carole Protat, Senior Director Education, Wella NA
*Throughout the fundraiser, viewers can donate via a “donate button” on the Facebook live stream, or on www.probeauty.org/wellacares. The Professional Beauty Association will donate half of proceeds to The Loveland Foundation following the event.
