Increasing diversity, representation, and inclusivity in the beauty industry should be everyone's priority. That’s why we're thrilled to be the official media partner for beauty non-profit Support Creatives' upcoming BIPOC Beauty School Marathon. The second event in their Beauty Together series will provide back-to-back, industry-led educational courses focused on working with deep skin tones and textured hair from August 10 to August 14. Moderated by Support Creative’s co-founder and celebrity hairstylist Michael Dueñas, the global live stream event will provide industry professionals and beauty lovers with a chance to sit in on masterclasses led by expert hair and makeup artists about important topics and techniques that are often underrepresented in beauty.
