MY SALON Suite Awards First Pool of Winners for Annual Member Scholarship Program


Congratulations are in order for the winners of My SALON Suite’s annual scholarship program!

The program, which has doubled its funding from 2023, now awards 250 $250 scholarships quarterly to current MY SALON Suite Members for industry-related continuing education, totaling $62,500 awarded this year.

Partnering with the Professional Beauty Association’s PBA Charities, MY SALON Suite received an overwhelming response to its scholarship program.

In this round, 62 deserving individuals have been chosen to further their professional development within the beauty and wellness industry. 

All of the scholarships are provided through the MY SALON Suite’s Suite Relief Fund are built on donations made by MY SALON Suite Members and Franchise Partners and administered by PBA Charities. Completed applications are reviewed and scholarships are awarded by a committee appointed by the Chair of the Beauty Professional/NCA section of the Professional Beauty Association.

Their success is our success, and we are committed to being their partner every step of the way.”

Melissa Sawers, owner of Wicked Hair Witch at MY SALON Suite Plantation, FL, couldn’t help but express her excitement at being named one of the scholarship recipients.

This investment in my education will not only refine my craft but also open doors to new techniques, trends, and networking opportunities that will help me stand out in the beauty industry.
