Beyoncé's Influence Boosts Levi's Stock by 20% - Reports

Beyoncé’s Cécred x BeyGood Fund is expanding its mission to support the next generation of hair care professionals with the launch of a second round of business grants for beauty salons in financial need.

On May 1, the fund reopened applications for its business grants program, offering five $10,000 grants to qualifying salon owners.

This initiative is part of the fund’s annual commitment of $500,000 in donations to provide scholarships for cosmetology students and business grants for salons in five chosen cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and New Jersey.

Last month, the first round of scholarships and business grants were awarded.

Twenty-five $10,000 scholarships were distributed to students across five cosmetology schools in the chosen cities, while twenty-five $10,000 grants were given to eligible salon owners.

The salons that received the initial grants included Kingdom Glam Beauty Depot in Atlanta, Amour Full Service Salon Inc. in Chicago, Knot’s Beauty Company LLC in Houston, Nela Beauty Salon LLC in Los Angeles, and The A Lifestyle in New Jersey.

“Hair stylists and aspiring stylists are vital to our community, and we are committed to supporting their growth,” BeyGood announced on Instagram.

Cécred’s charitable work with BeyGood follows the launch of Beyoncé’s haircare line in February.

The brand was created to continue her family’s legacy in the haircare industry, a tradition emphasized by Beyoncé’s mother, Ms. Tina Knowles.

“Hair has always been a significant part of our lives,” Knowles told Essence.

“In the culture of Black folks, all the way from the beginning: If you could do some hair, you’ll never be broke,” she added. “So it’s our legacy, and this full-circle moment feels amazing.”

Since its release, Cécred has received positive feedback from customers of all hair types, with video testimonials on social media praising the products’ results.
