Both scholarships provide tuition gifts to students enrolled in a qualified cosmetology program, and a total of five $5,000 scholarships will be awarded in 2020.

“We are excited to further empower and invest in the salon community by partnering with Beauty Changes Lives to provide five incredible students with scholarships to advance their careers.

We are excited to see what this next generation of stylists can accomplish,” says Moroccanoil Co-founder Carmen Tal.

“These scholarships celebrate individuals’ confidence to move boldly toward achieving their career goals — often in the face of significant obstacles — and the confidence that beauty and wellness professionals champion in their clients. We are honored that Moroccanoil is calling attention to the courage and confidence that are hallmarks of professionals working in the beauty and wellness industry,” says Lynelle Lynch, president of Beauty Changes Lives.
