The Allied Beauty Association is a strong advocate for the beauty industry in more ways than one. Below are just a few of the ways the ABA has been giving back to the industry that has been so crucial to it’s development.
Look Good Feel Better
The ABA’s charity of choice is Look Good Feel Better, an amazing charity with the strong belief that ‘an improved self-image can help lift women’s spirits and nurture hope, helping them face their illness with greater confidence.’ More than 70% of each dollar raised goes directly to the LGFB workshop and educational programs, allowing them to share empowering information with women with cancer. These free workshops are currently offered in over 100 cancer care facilities and hospitals across the country. The ABA is a Gold Supporter of LGFB, and provides the opportunity for them to be at every trade show held, so that they can spread their message to as many people as possible.
