Why did Sharon Blain Education want to open up scholarships?
When interviewing a group of world acclaimed industry hair legends recently, they all expressed that the key to their career successes and achievement was due entirely to having perfected strong foundational skills in basic hair design and the desire to never stop learning.

These world class legends include leading editorial stylists whose work appears in leading international fashion magazines, famous movies stylists, and directors from leading fashion week shows from Paris to New York. These individuals are crème de la crème of the hair industry and are those who the next generation of hairdressers admire and aspire to.

To help the younger generation meet the demands in their future career development, the SBE Scholarship Award was born.
