Any beauty professional knows the importance of a good professional portfolio. After all, your portfolio is how you market yourself in the beauty industry. And when it comes to showcasing your work beautifully online, who better to turn to for guidance than the beauty industry’s latest networking platform, Canvas Me?
Formally known as Canvas Recruit, as of July 1st, the marketing startup has since rebranded itself with a new name and focus on “industry wide inclusivity and empowerment.” Developed by beauty industry veterans, Jen and Martinelli, Canvas Me provides cosmetology students, professionals, and beauty businesses the unique opportunity to create beautiful free digital resumes, apply for job openings, and collaborate with like-minded professionals.
“While we launched Canvas Recruit to empower beauty professionals to find their full-time work home, we realized it’s about so much more than that. Canvas Me is about celebrating accomplishments, humanizing, learning and career enhancement — so much more than just recruitment,” said Co-Founder & CEO, Jen Martenelli, in a press release. “The Canvas Me portfolio will allow members to share their stories and form deeper connections with peers and potential employers. They will create their portfolio to be seen, to be heard, and to live out their best career in beauty.”
In addition to its e-portfolio functionality, the networking tool also offers specific features to suit the needs of any beauty professional, business owner, or cosmetology school owner.
For The Beauty Professional
Canvas Me allows beauty professionals to create a beautiful digital portfolio that showcases their value and talents. Not only does the portfolio allow individuals to share KPIs such as work history, retention numbers, and awards, but the platform also allows people to share their portfolios with companies through a direct link and connect with other artists.

Canvas Me is the perfect recruitment tool for beauty businesses. The platform allows business owners to search for candidates using KPI’s, brands they have used, and years of experiences, among other factors.
