Winners of our Leadership Scholarship

Drumroll, please! Excited to announce the winners of our leadership scholarship. Please meet Saul Espinosa (Barber) and Alexandra Rodriguez (Cosmetology)!

In September of 2023, we opened up our leadership scholarship opportunity – we were looking for two people to be the next leader and influencer of the beauty and barbering industry. Great candidates submitted a written application and video application, explaining why they should be recognized as leaders. Awesome applications! We were looking for candidates who have the capability and passion to become a contributor to the beauty industry going forward. This person would demonstrate high leadership potential, be willing to become a role model for other beauty professionals and demonstrate creativity and willingness to show up.

After a long process of collecting applications and working with our expert industry panel to find our two winners, it was ultimately decided that Saul (Wahl Barber Academy) and Alexandra (Pivot Point Academy) were our leaders. Congratulations to you both for your dedication and passion – it has truly shone through. Here’s to the next chapter of academic success!

We invite you to follow Saul and Alexandra’s journey, from beauty and barber school students to professionals. More information coming soon, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for more!
