Sola Salons has announced a national involvement as the largest salon suite concept to partner with Beauty Changes Lives One Day One Ticket Program, a continuation of the brand's partnership with the non-profit that kicked off in 2023. Participating Sola Salons beauty and wellness professionals will donate one “ticket,” or one service cost, from their salon's business day to the Beauty Changes Lives initiative. All funds raised by Sola Salons beauty professionals will be reinvested into the industry through Beauty Changes Lives' scholarship and mentorship programs.

The funds raised by the One Day One Ticket Program will be donated to the Beauty Changes Lives programs making the beauty profession a first-choice career and elevating the industry for current and future hairstylists, nail technicians, estheticians and more who may not otherwise have access or opportunity.

Sola Salons’ philanthropic alliance with Beauty Changes Lives kicked off with a $25,000 donation to the nonprofit for its first-ever K(no)w Beauty Secrets campaign, which served as a movement to challenge industry perceptions and offer beauty professionals a platform to share their personal narratives and career journeys. Alongside Sola Salon's charitable endeavors with the K(no)w Beauty Secrets campaign and One Day One Ticket program, the partnership with Beauty Changes Lives also includes hands-on mentorship work to guide and coach the new guard of beauty professionals.

“As the first salon suite concept to partner with Beauty Changes Lives, we understand the significant responsibility and opportunity in future-proofing the beauty industry for current and incoming independent professionals,” said Emily Alders, Director of Education at Sola Salons. “It's a privilege for our 20,000+ beauty professionals and franchise owners to play a direct role in enhancing accessibility to industry careers through comprehensive mentorship, advanced educational initiatives, and scholarship programs."

“Unlike traditional post-secondary schooling, which offers various funding avenues, those pursuing careers in the Beauty Industry often face limited options,” says Lisa Roeberg, Executive Director for Beauty Changes Lives. “That's where Beauty Changes Lives steps in! With the generous support of our partners, we've transformed the lives of over 1,500 professionals through scholarships, mentorship, advanced education, and business grants. Today, over 90% of our recipients are thriving in the Industry! By joining forces with Sola Salons and its vibrant community of beauty professionals, we're committed to making beauty a first-choice career for generations to come.”
