The collaboration between Sally Beauty and The Black Hair Experience has been growing over the past few months and has now given rise to Rooted in Success. This initiative aims to amplify the voices of textured hair innovators and leaders in the beauty industry. It aligns perfectly with Sally Beauty's mission to inspire and engage the next generation of consumers. Together they have curated unique consumer activations that promote confidence-building resources while encouraging networking opportunities for HBCU students. As part of this initiative, Sally Beauty is also launching a discount program for active HBCU-enrolled students across the country. Starting this Spring semester, students can avail a 10% discount on both in-store and online purchases at Sally Beauty.

John Goss, President of Sally Beauty, stated, "We believe beauty is a powerful form of self-expression, and we see it as our role to facilitate access beyond quality products by providing opportunities for influential industry leaders to engage, inspire, and connect with consumers and young entrepreneurs. At Rooted in Success, we are showcasing founder-led stories from both emerging and established Black beauty leaders, and we are excited to celebrate this partnership through local events and continued support year-round."
