‘Salon Give Back’ Grant Winners Have Been Selected!

Salon Give Back
Brand courtesy

Beauty salons occupy sacred space in the lives of Black women. Our stylists not only make us look good, they also make us feel good! We go to the salon to keep our hair on point, but also for good vibes, advice, support, and sisterhood. Our stylists aren’t just stylists, they’re family, and COVID-19 has hit them particularly hard. With “Safer at Home” practices, salons all over the country were forced to close their doors and independent stylists were unable to make a living. 

To address this critical need, Gold Series from Pantene and Royal Oils by Head & Shoulders partnered with Grammy award winning singer Monica and Reflect Beauty to launch the Salon Give Back Program, awarding 20 grant recipients with $10,000 each, for a total of $200,000 to support the community. Please join us in celebrating our 20 winners!
