The hairdressing industry is full of strong characters, creative minds and most of it passion. Passion was also at the root of starting Shaping Futures, a shared vision of giving back as a joint effort. Launched by Schwarzkopf Professional in 2010, Shaping Futures is a charitable initiative designed to give young adults the chance to learn how to become a hairdresser and how to build a thriving career once they have.
Like all the best ideas, it's quite simple. To offer young adults living in challenging circumstances a chance to learn hairdressing skills and meet potential employers to enable them to build a brighter future.
On top of the training they receive from Schwarzkopf Professional finest hairdressers, Shaping Futures offers ongoing support and real opportunities to find their way in the world of work and develop as a professional, via mentoring and job placements.
To date Shaping Futures has trained and supported over 2000 young adults, across four continents. Changing every single life it touches.

As an educator I feel humbled that I got this opportunity. To be able to deliver education to these amazing students was the best experience of my career so far. These students know just how much education can provide, and knowing this they make every effort to be the best they can be. Education isn't just knowledge it's power. These students now have a skill that has the ability to change their lives.
