“It is an event that is going to empower whatever generation that you sit on to be the best and highest version of yourself. So if you are a barber, we want you to be the best barber that you can be, or stylist, or makeup artist. We know the beauty community is very broad.”

“We definitely need to create an event where we have every single mentor there possible…so they can start molding every single level of your career. And we did.”

“Give back is the nucleus and the center of why this event was even adopted and birthed. If we couldn’t do give back, we weren’t gonna do it. We wanted to make sure that our visions were aligned and it was putting those that needed it the most at the center, at the heartbeat, of what we’re doing.”

“Don’t meet us there, beat us there!”
