Do you have passion for people, beauty, the beauty industry, social media and the world? If you will graduate and be licensed by January 1, 2013 you can apply for the 2013 Matrix Spread the Love program.
“The benefits of participating in this unique program are profound,” says Matrix Marketing Director Yaniv Shapira. “Spread the Love Ambassadors interact with everyone in the industry, from other stylists to salon owners to store owners, educators, manufacturers and marketers,” he says. “They receive an incredibly deep understanding of the business and unparalleled opportunities to network. They’re also mentored by Matrix Artistic Directors and NAHA winners, and exposed to the giving and generous ‘heart’ of this business via the charitable and philanthropic activities that they participate in through Chairs of Change.”
Start by visiting www.Mymatrixfamily.com/stl for application details. You will be asked to submit a video essay explaining why you want to take part in a Spread the Love adventure, links to personal social networking sites and links to personal blog samples.
Deadline for the first round of applications is August 31, 2012. Also in June, all cosmetology schools will be invited to nominate students for the program. Shortly after August 31, applicants who passed the first round will be notified and required to submit additional material, including blogs and videos. With their completed applications, the beauty school nominees will automatically proceed to the second round. Ultimately, the finalists will be flown to New York City in December and selected after a round of personal interviews. Winners will be announced mod-December 2012.
“Now in its second year, Spread the Love is really gathering incredible momentum,” comments Yaniv. “The Spread the Love Ambassadors that are currently combing the country are doing an incredible job of exploring every aspect that our profession has to offer, and sharing their experiences and passion via blogs and videos on www.mymatrixfamily.com/love.”
Bottom line? Spread the Love can truly jumpstart a nascent career. “If you know what you want to do within this industry, it opens doors,” says Yaniv. “If you don’t, there are unlimited opportunities to explore and learn what you want to do.”
