Beauty Changes Lives | Leo Passage Educational Scholarship

Do you want to be part of something bigger?

The Leo Passage Advanced NEXTGEN Scholarship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of something big and have your voice heard in the industry! For licensed barbers and hairstylists with 1-5 years of experience, winners will receive an all-expense paid trip to Chicago to showcase their creative talent on stage at the 2018 Beauty Changes Lives Event, held during America’s Beauty Show. Scholarship awardees will work alongside NEXTGEN and top industry professionals from across the country, showcasing their work in a comprehensive runway show. Mentors from Pivot Point International’s Creative Education team will work side by side with the winners to ensure they are supported for a dynamic, successful runway show.

Awardees will create cohesive image portfolios documenting their behind-the-scenes experience throughout the trip, and they’ll gain valuable insight on what’s needed to thrive among the elite professionals in a competitive industry. They’ll also gain new experience, a showcase of their talent and continuous education to enhance their careers and provide the best services. After this creative immersion in beautiful downtown Chicago, winners will return to their salons or barbershops with fresh and creative ideas for their clients. They will experience firsthand what tomorrow’s leadership in the beauty industry is all about!

Open to licensed barbers and hairstylists with 1-5 years of experience
