TRESemmé® Future Stylist Fund Information

Our Future Stylists Fund

 

The Future Stylists Fund is an annual, by-application program that supports TRESemmé’s ongoing commitment to advocate for diverse representation and equitable treatment for hair professionals, and to help aspiring Black female hairstylists achieve their career ambitions.

Our expert Selection Committee (see below[) picks 10 recipients of the Future Stylists Fund, and puts them on a path to advance their careers. Recipients are given $10,000 to help offset the cost of cosmetology school tuition, are provided industry exposure and career-advancing opportunities. Recipients also receive on-set experience, exposure through our brand channels and community, and mentorship and development resources from members of the TRESemmé family, including stylists like Lacy Redway, Nai'vasha and Justine Marjan.
