History – About the Teen Board Foundation:

The original Florida Teen Board was established in the late 1970’s to provide young teens (boys and girls) with the opportunity to showcase their talents by doing fashion shows and special events at local shopping malls, specialty stores, and community organizations. Many of the original members have built very successful businesses nationwide and have worked on several fashion-related projects. Over the years, these businesses continue to give back to the community that has helped get them to jumpstart their career.  The creation and development of the TEEN BOARD Foundation is a result of one of those projects.

The Teen Board has been re-focused and reshaped into a non-profit foundation where teens from all walks of life can channel their talents unto the runway in an effort to be a positive role model for all teens, as they empowering and encouraging them through their personal stories. Each model on The Teen Board has their own personal story that “rocks” of which they are willing to share with other teens. To this end, in an effort to create a culture of teens sharing with other teens, the foundation’s motto “My Story Rocks…Ask Me!” has been credited for creating numerous new meaningful connections among teens through fashion.

The Teen Board models have overcome many adversities through the mission of the foundation and they have used their traumatic past to empower and encourage other teens who have been through similar challenges.  As the Teen Board models use their personal experiences to provide an emotional shelter for other teens and young children in their communities, they do so by creating alliances with local chapters of the South Florida After-School All Stars (SFASAS) program. SFASAS, a national organization that provides year-round, after-school programs to students.

The Teen Board Foundation’s mission is to provide a home for teens to discover themselves through their adversities and childhood challenges, and in so doing, it empowers them to excel in school to pursue their goals and dreams, thus, ensuring that they become influential participants in their respective communities.

The Teen Board remains open to all children irrespective of their age, height, and size.  However, the New Teen Board Administrative Board embraces high standards in the selection of our new members –selected teens will give back to their local communities by supporting local charitable organizations that embrace goals to protect and nurture children.  Therefore, new members are carefully selecting based on their scholastic achievements, community or school contributions and the willingness to positively influence their peers.

As a community initiative, the Teen Board Foundation remains open to providing fashion shows in collaboration with other organizations sponsoring charitable or fundraising events. Such partnerships provide the teen models with a positive outlet as they build their confidence, and also provide a platform of inspiration for other teens in their schools, neighborhoods, and communities to do the same.

“My Story Rocks…Ask Me!”

Their experiences make them unique…

yet a myriad of strengths exist among them.

Sojourn – Positive Chemistry for Hair

The Pursuit of Perfection

Behind every successful stylist is a deep driving desire to learn and grow beyond the fundamentals taught in beauty schools. Sojourn believes that journey begins with advanced education that inspires, invigorates and supports hairdressers in mastering their craft. We take responsibility for our role in this process seriously by working with stylists to encourage artistic expression, develop technical skills and build stronger professional relationships.

Sojourn educational forums take place around the country and are open to all stylists interested in learning, growing and supporting one another in taking new risks. Come with an open mind and leave with the confidence that comes from collaborating with some of the industry’s leading hairstylists.

Melissa Stone is the Creative Director for Sojourn. She began her career as a stylist and educator for the Vidal Sassoon Company. As the first American female to earn the title of Creative Director at Sassoon, Melissa went on to inspire hundreds of hairdressers to use their creative talents and technical skills in new and unprecedented ways. Today she is one of the most sought after print media, celebrity and runway stylists in the industry. A firm believer in mentoring and education, Melissa enthusiastically supports the Sojourn team in salon familiarization and stylist education.

“For each stylist there is turning point, that moment when they feel they have finally found their true self. Whether that comes from styling clients, editorial work, teaching or developing new techniques, the path is clear. The decision to serve as Creative Director for Sojourn is one of those defining moments in my career. Working with a team that is so completely synergistic in its mission to deliver a safe and effective product that focuses on the stylist’s needs and success is a unique concept that is profoundly inspiring and uplifting. I believe that mentoring and education are a significant part of that process. And I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of paying it forward.”

Consejo de Beauty Schools of America®

June 2nd, 2011

¿Ha tomado mucho sol este fin de semana? Aquí tiene algunos remedios caseros para ayudarle durante la semana:

(1)    Para ayudarle a restaurar el PH rápido, pero también reducir la irritación y formación de ampollas, llene su bañera de agua lo más fría posible y añada 4 tazas de vinagre al agua. Una alternación es llenar una botella rociadora con partes iguales de vinagre y agua – y rocíese cuantas veces sea necesario.

(2)     La leche también calma la piel y deja una barrera protectora de proteína. Todo lo que necesita es mojar una gaza en la leche y colocársela en el área afectada por unos minutos.

(3)     La sábila (Aloe Vera) es grandiosa y se puede conseguir en su tienda local. Este remedio es más efectivo si se usa directamente de la planta. Solo tiene que cortar las hojas de sábila y frotársela en la piel afectada por el sol.

(4)     Té tanino se puede utilizar para suavizar la piel y reducir el malestar. Simplemente prepare una taza de té, déjele refrescar, viértalo en una botella rociadora y rocíeselo en el área afectada.

No olvide tomar suficiente agua, esto ayuda a hidratar su piel y repara rápidamente. Recuerde que dependiendo de la severidad de la piel que madura, tardara en reponerse.

También puede visitar a uno de nuestros spas donde le podemos ayudar y al mismo tiempo recibirá una consulta GRATIS. Lláme a Beauty Schools of America® hoy al 305.824.2054 para encontrar la ubicación más cercana.
