WATCH THIS FIRST

All 2021 scholarships have been awarded.
 In 2021 we granted over 50k in education to hairstylists . We believe education unlocks human potential. Stay tuned for 2022 scholarships available, May 2022.

Hair Love Scholarship is a scholarship for ambitious hairstylists who want to create a fulfilling career.
They love their craft, the industry & want to build a wealthy business that can last a lifetime. 

We know that starting a business & growing a clientele can be challenging & that there are so many hairstylists, salon owners, & beauty educators that would flourish with the right support. Sometimes we just need a leg up! 

As hairstylists, we have so much positive impact on so many in our local communities.
Clients share so much of their intimate life with us. The best moments & the worst. 

Stylists are typically creatives at heart & love human connection but we have found that business, wellness, & advanced craft education are not accessible to so many stylists. We want to create opportunities for all types of hair businesses & hair entrepreneurs.  

The hair industry is one of abundance, & we want everyone to have a piece of the pie. 

Whether you are just getting started, in beauty school, opening a salon, or have been in the industry for years & feel that quality education would change your life. THIS IS FOR YOU!

Apply for your business today or nominate a hairstylist you know.
