Matrix’s Spread the Love Ambassador Program is a great opportunity for recent cosmetology school graduates! Each year, six lucky graduates are chosen to embark on a journey of a lifetime, traveling state to state, salon to salon, event to event, exploring the country, connecting with other stylists, and learning the ins and outs of the business.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you need to hurry! The deadline for applications is approaching on August 31, 2012. In order to apply, you must be at least 21 years old and licensed by January 1, 2012, or have graduated on or after January 1, 2011.
You can apply online here. Along with your application, you’ll also need to include:
- A link to your most active social networking site.
- A link to your blog with a minimum of three blog entries.
- A link to a YouTube Video with a 60-90 second video explaining why you should be selected for Spread the Love.
Your application needs to prove your social media skills along with your love for the beauty industry. That’s because social media is a huge part of the Spread the Love campaign. Contestants are required to share their all of their experiences on the road with millions of Matrix fans through their blogs, social media posts, and personal videos.
Finalists will be flown to New York City in December for a round of personal interviews. Winners will be announced mid-December 2012.
Salon Success Academy considers itself to be a “people helping company.” That’s why we’re proud to be an official Spread the Love school and representative of the Matrix professional hair care company. In January 2012, Spread the Love sponsored a fundraiser at the Salon Success Academy Upland campus. Matrix donated several raffle prizes and two of the ‘Spread the Love’ finalists, Natalie and Meredith, attended the cut-a-thon. All of the money raised that day was donated to the House of Ruth, a non-profit organization that assists families victimized by domestic violence. Watch Natalie and Meredith’s video from the cut-a-thon at Salon Success Academy.
