As Welcome To Our World returns to Capitol Hill on May 20, the Professional Beauty Federation (PBF) needs industry volunteers and contributors to help make this event a continued success.

This annual event gives salon professionals from across the U.S.  the opportunity to educate members of Congress, professional staff, and all others eager to learn about the dedicated group of hardworking professionals who make up this industry. Licensed hairstylists, nail technicians, make-up artists, massage therapists as well as cosmetology students are needed to share their time and talents by giving complimentary haircuts and mini-manicures to attendees.

Members of Congress and their key staff attend and learn about the professional beauty industry’s key issues, including access to cosmetology education and financial aid, consumer protection, equitable taxation, and small business support.
