Phillip Lim, creative director and cofounder of 3.1 Phillip Lim, shares his belief that sustainable fashion is a journey at the Aveda- hosted panel. SPONSORING SUSTAINABILITY Beauty Changes 500 Lives … and Counting Update: Now in its sixth year, Beauty Changes Lives (BCL) has awarded more than 500 scholarships to aspiring and licensed beauty professionals since its inception. To celebrate this major milestone, BCL ambassadors and scholarship recipients took to the 2019 Premiere Orlando stage, relating how the nonprofi t is equipping the future generation of beauty professionals for success. Former U.S. Marine and Bellus Academy barbering/ cosmetology student Kristyl Rodgriguez moved the crowd while speaking about her personal achievements, made possible because of the Sydell & Arnold Miller Family Art of Haircutting Student Scholarship. She has since been campaigning for the industry, meeting with legislators from California to Washington D.C. about the job opportunities available in beauty. BCL recipients have an outstanding success record—95 percent graduate from beauty school and approximately one- third go on to start their own business. "We're honored to have reached the 500-plus scholarship milestone and are well on our way toward changing 1,000 lives. Through initiatives like the Get Your Dream Job campaign, Beauty Changes Lives is changing perceptions about careers in beauty while changing the lives of next-gen professionals," states BCL president Lynelle Lynch.
