When the Associated Press reported on the nation’s shortage of beauty and wellness professionals, the venerable news outlet turned to Bellus Academy owner Lynelle Lynch for insight. In an article covered by more than 250 media outlets around the nation, Lynelle Lynch shared how Bellus Academy is partnering with salon and spa employers to meet the beauty industry’s demand for knowledgeable, licensed professionals through the Get Your Dream Job campaign. In addition to Bellus Academy, Lynch founded the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation which has raised more than $6 million for scholarships in the industry.
Within the next decade, more than 700,000 hairstylists will be needed to meet employers’ demand. In addition, the spa industry currently reports more than 30,000 vacancies in the spa sector. To equip students for these opportunities, Bellus Academy is delivering an innovative approach to beauty education that unites manufacturers, spas and salons.
