Find out how beauty makes a difference in people’s lives by visiting the Beauty Changes Lives blog, a new blog created to showcase how beauty professionals and ordinary “civilians” are using beauty to benefit individuals and communities.

The Beauty Changes Lives Blog is an extension of the Beauty Changes Lives Initiative, launched by the American Association of Cosmetology Schools in 2010 to raise awareness of careers in the beauty industry and provide beauty school scholarships.

The blog is a forum where anyone with a passion for beauty can converse, collaborate and inspire others. A team of guest authors including beauty bloggers, salon and spa professionals, and students share first-person stories of transformation, giving back, and inspiring others.

Beauty Changes Lives spokeswoman Jenn Lyles said the blog seeks feedback from individuals within and beyond the beauty industry. “Beauty professionals touch every facet of the world. Cut-a-thons benefiting children’s programs, domestic violence prevention initiatives and complimentary services for hospitalized patients are just some of the ways beauty professionals give back. We want to hear from those who serve and those who are served by beauty professionals,” Lyles said.
