The unprecedented loss in the beauty industry due to Covid 19 and the shutdowns inspired me to create a platform that will revolutionize our industry.
The current structure of the beauty industry for freelance artists and small business owners is archaic and overdue for improvement. This new platform particularly addresses those various long standing issues in order to create a better future for us all.
It’s time for a change.
The first part of the plan is to provide self employed beauty industry professionals with among other things, a safety net for their businesses. This safety net will not only help entrepreneurs that are currently struggling but will help future ones that may find themselves in need due to other unforeseen circumstances.
A committee of 7 impartial industry professionals from all over the world have been appointed to determine need on a case by case basis. As funding increases we are hoping to spread these funds even further by offering help to as many self employed artists as we can.
To kick this platform off I, Jen Mathias reached out to 21 members of a facebook group for industry professionals that I created more than 10 years ago. We’ve worked tirelessly for over a month on various parts of this “bigger picture” plan. Starting with the #SaveMySalon movement to bring awareness to the current plight of the beauty industry.

We have already made a huge difference within our industry Facebook group. However, in order to reach our future goals, we need your help. Therefore, we have established a few ways you can contribute.
- Donate to us directly. We are collecting all donor email addresses because we plan to send Tax deductible receipts if/when we are able to. [wpedon id=212]
- Online store (Coming Soon) 94% of all profits generated from this store will directly go to self employed artists that are on the verge of losing their businesses.
- Gift Cards (Coming Soon) We are about to launch gift card options to use on various parts of this site. From merchandise to education and everything in between. Soon you can help beauty industry artists twofold, by making a contribution to the fund while also giving your personal stylist a gift card to our site.
- Reward Points (Coming Soon) Soon you will be able to purchase site credits to use much like gift cards within this site. These will be accumulate based on your site usage, purchase history as well as other factors. They are transferable, can be used to get discounts or even credited back to you like cash when you are done with them.
