Celebrating Diversity and Inclusivity at the MUAHS Awards Gifting Suite!
I had the pleasure of attending the MUAHS Awards Gifting Suite hosted by the Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild (IATSE Local 706). The event was a celebration of the creative professionals who have created the iconic looks for Hollywood's most memorable characters and stars.
The Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild (IATSE Local 706) is the official labor union for make-up artists and hair stylists in film, television, stage, and digital media. These artistic professionals have influenced major trends in the consumer industry and are responsible for creating some of the most iconic looks in Hollywood.
The event was a VIP & Media Reception, we had the opportunity to engage with all of the beauty and hair brands that were activating on site. The sponsors included Dove, beautyblender, Schwarzkopf, Le Mieux, FAROUK CHI BIOSILK, ARDELL, URBAN DECAY, FUSIONPKG, BLK/OPL, Hollywood Fashion Secrets, Woodysforemen, Govanni Cosmetics, Punky Hair Colour, tablette', and Skin Shine Beauty.
One of the highlights of the event was the launch of DOVE® brand's "Crown Day Competition." The online hair-styling contest celebrates Afro-centric hairstyles for the Make-up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild, IATSE Local 706 members. The competition celebrates the passage of “The Crown Act” by the State of California on July 3rd, 2019, which protects the rights of people of color at schools and in the workplace to wear afro-centric hairstyles without fear of repercussion. This is a significant step towards inclusivity and diversity in the beauty industry, and I was proud to support this initiative.
I am grateful to have been a part of an event that promotes diversity and inclusivity in the beauty industry.
The MUAHS Awards Gifting Suite was a reminder that the industry is moving towards a more inclusive future, and it was inspiring to see brands come together to celebrate this.
I'd like to extend my gratitude to the Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild (IATSE Local 706) for hosting such an incredible event, and to all the sponsors who made the event possible. I look forward to future events that promote diversity and inclusivity in the beauty industry.
