The Beauty Community Needs Your Help

Less than a week ago Hurricane Michael barreled into the Florida panhandle, leaving a vast path of destruction behind. As salon professionals in the storm's path were forced to leave their homes and businesses behind, the Professional Beauty Association is calling out to you for help.

Established in 1955 by the National Cosmetology Association, the Disaster Relief Fund assists salon professionals in rebuilding their lives following the devastation of a natural disaster. Since inception, professionals like you have donated almost 2 million dollars and our community has been able to help thousands of professionals in their time of need.

100 percent of funds donated go directly to beauty industry professionals, and professionals do not need to be a PBA Member to apply or donate funds.

The PBA Disaster Relief Fund provides quick cash for short-term, immediate needs such as clothing, food, bills and more for those affected by natural disasters. To ensure PBA can help as many beauty professionals as possible, the Fund is not able to aid with the long-term rebuilding of salons. For more information, visit
