SheaMoisture and Tina Knowles-Lawson have teamed up to launch the Salon Innovation Fund and content series aimed directly at supporting Black hairstylists. The grants will be awarded in an effort to provide funding and education that can help independent stylists turn their side-hustle into a business and diversify and scale their new beauty offerings. As part of the fund, Knowles-Lawson and her friend and celebrity hair stylist Neal Farinah will be featured in the brand’s ongoing content series called Salon Sessions where they discuss the importance of the fund and sharing their personal stories as stylists and salon owners. The invitation to apply is currently open through October 18th. Learn more and apply here.
