Every woman, regardless of hair type, deserves to have access and feel confident that they will receive quality hair care at every appointment—and unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
In 2020, TRESemmé conducted two national studies on hair biases and uncovered that stylists lack education and training when it comes to styling and caring for textured, curly, and coily hair types. This has led to an overwhelming number of Black women (86%) who have reported challenges when it comes to consistent, quality haircare at salons, including difficulty finding a stylist who could care for their type/texture of hair and even outright discrimination or bias due to their hair type. 1 Surveyed stylists agree that education is the top growth driver that would help them advance in their career (40%) and three in four stylists (75%) wish they had more training in how to style Black hair.2
Through the Future Stylists Fund, it’s our goal to support the education, training and development of burgeoning hair professionals, while also investing in representation of Black female stylists.
