SpaSho announces National Black Estheticians’ Week Speakers (Press Release)
Sephora to provide gifts to NBEW Participants
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. Jan. 31, 2022—SpaSho Media, in collaboration with Black Estheticians and the Skin Therapists Association, celebrates the third annual National Black Estheticians’ Week (NBEW) with a virtual speakers’ event beginning Tuesday, February 22 that will stream live on spasho.com via media partner, AMPTV.
NBEW event supporter, Sephora, the largest specialty beauty retailer in the world, will give gift bags, valued at $150, to a number of estheticians who participate in this year’s NBEW.
Also giving away prizes during NBEW includes Associated Skincare Professionals (ASCP), a foundational entity and advocate for estheticians, (see the list of giveaway items below.)
Promotional event support from industry leaders include: Milady, Dermascope, The Skin Games, Reviva Labs, Aesthetics Unique and The Beauty Pod.
NBEW is a seven-day celebration featuring skin care experts and industry renowned speakers discussing treatment protocols for skin of color, business guidance, publicity tips and industry trends for estheticians. The general public is also welcome to attend this free virtual event by subscribing to the SpaSho website.
“We’re so excited about our lineup of speakers and the collaboration and support we have received in making this event happen,” said Tiffany Medois, licensed esthetician, and founder of SpaSho and NBEW.
“Our goal is to continue to raise the visibility of estheticians who have firsthand understanding of the unique skin care needs of higher Fitzpatrick skin types. We celebrate and support all estheticians and skin connoisseurs as we work towards connecting clients with estheticians who personally understand skin of color.”
This year’s NBEW theme is, “Write the Vision, Make it Plain.” Estheticians, brands and supporters are encouraged to share their business and skin care goals for the year, as well as how the skin care industry can collectively write a vision that celebrates all of our beauty and skin care needs while raising the awareness around the specific needs of skin of color and action steps to support those needs.
“Something magical happens when Black estheticians feel supported,” said Katina Gilmore, a licensed esthetician and registered nurse who will be one of the featured NBEW speakers this year. It was through her B.E.S.T. Association where NBEW was first launched.
“ NBEW brings us a sense of pride, inspiration, and support during Black History month.”
This year’s NBEW speakers include:
SpaSho’s ticket giveaway to The Skin Games to provide full access; ASCP to provide numerous giveaways during NBEW
