One of the most popular jokes online right now is that we are about 3 months away from seeing everyone’s real hair color and nails, and although it’s funny it’s also very accurate. The closing of salons, spas, and beauty industry retail spaces will impact us all eventually. However, right now beauty industry professionals across the world are feeling the impact already. Human interaction and being closer than 6 feet away from a client is essential to most types of cosmetology businesses, so how can these nail technicians, hairstylists, makeup artists, salon and spa owners stay afloat during these uncertain times?
Here is a list of resources to use during COVID-19 closures and sheltering-in-place. These are from national organizations and beauty publications, as well as government resources.
CND & the Horst M. Rechelbacher Foundation COVID-19 RELIEF GRANTS
Both CND & the Horst M. Rechelbacher Foundation are repurposing funds originally donated for scholarships to benefit relief efforts supporting licensed & aspiring professionals whose lives have been drastically changed by the mandated closures in response to COVID-19.
