It all started with a desire to make a change. In 2014, founder Heather Packer took her decade of expertise in the beauty industry and launched a vocational program for young women in Rishikesh, India - an area where traditionally, girls are married at a young age and are not free to work outside of the home.
"My vision was to launch a program that inspires other hairdressers to volunteer and teach," she said. "The skills hairstylists use every day are universal. People around the world can learn this trade and become empowered and economically self-sufficient."
