What is the program?

School educators deserve recognition for their impact on students’ lives and the industry. This program gives current beauty and barber school students and grads an opportunity to show appreciation.

Our program will highlight instructors who have gone the extra mile in the field of education. Out of a pool of finalists, five honorees will be selected to attend the Intercoiffure America Canada (ICA) Fall Atelier in New York on September 29 & 30, 2024. All expenses paid! Our finalists and honorees will be included on ICA’s online wall of fame.

Who can nominate their educators?

Nominations can come from any current student or stylist, nail tech, esthetician, or barber who has been in the industry for five years or less. We want to hear from you – help us recognize the educators (yes, you can nominate more than one instructor) who have made a difference in your life.

How do I nominate someone?

Nominating someone is easy using our online form (below). Just tell us who you’re nominating and why. And, if possible, please contact your teacher to see if she/he is still working.

When are entries due?

Nominations will be accepted from February 15 – April 15, 2024. All honorees and finalists will be contacted the week of May 15, 2024, and the honorees will be announced live onstage at the ICA Fall Atelier on September 29, 2024, in New York.

How will your teacher be honored?

Our five finalists will be flown to New York to spend the weekend with Intercoiffure America Canada members and then be recognized onstage at the Fall Atelier. There is no cost for you to enter your educators, and there is no cost for our educator honorees to attend (we will provide them with an all-expense-paid trip to New York).
