Handsome & Welcome All Beauty Partner to Bring More Income to Stylists
Handsome Cofounders April and Nikki Dominguez partner with Gaby Natale, Founder of Welcome All Beauty, three-time EMMY-award winner & media personality to bring more career opportunities to beauty professionals. An introduction made via Odile Roujol’s Fashion and Beauty Tech Founder Community, is a step toward getting beauty pros back on their feet.
Handsome, a career app for beauty pro’s mission is to bring equal career opportunities and equal visibility to an industry that is overlooked, underestimated, and labeled with a heavy stigma of being a “fall back career”.
Welcome All Beauty, a hair extension company whose mission is to empower and elevate women by providing ambitious women with hair extensions that empower them to spend less than 5 minutes on their hair.
Together, Handsome and Welcome All Beauty will provide the opportunity for beauty pros to make additional income. During COVID beauty and barber pros were completely financially displaced, falling behind on business & personal income. The two are committed to helping the industry recover financially, emotionally and professionally.
The two companies, both founded by Hispanic x Latina women have come together to both empower women and uplift the beauty professional. The beauty industry is comprised of 85% women and is the leading industry for women and women owned businesses.
