Lusso Gives Corp
Lusso Gives Corp is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that serves as an extension to Lusso Salon. This organization officiates our philanthropic efforts to have an impact in the community. In addition to serving the community where we operate we host Lusso Gives Scholarship Fund.
Did you know the national average cost of Cosmetology School is about $15,000? Many reputable Cosmetology Schools are not eligible for government aid programs that extend tuition assistance and financial aid to students leaving education costs to be an out-of-pocket expense.
Lusso Gives has made a commitment to assist in ending the cyclical disadvantages caused by aspiring cosmetologists being unable to receive formal training and education by starting the Lusso Salon Scholarship Fund. Help us to reach our $15,000 goal with your donation!
"Thank you so much to Lusso Salon for your donation to my GoFundMe to further my education. Apprentice life is hard. People may underestimate the dedication it takes to work, go to school, practice your craft, and raise a family... I rarely ever ask for help, so creating GoFundMe was completely out of my comfort zone... That’s where Lusso Salon came in and paid the ending balance of my donation. It was so unexpected and greatly appreciated... Thank you for supporting my career and for offering opportunities for my advancement. Apprentices should definitely understand that there are good people out here who care about them and are willing to help. Don’t give up on your dreams. If your dreams don’t scare you, then that’s not it, sis! #dontgiveuponyourdreams

"This corporation is two fold. I believe business owners have a social responsibility to give back within the community where they thrive. For this reason I will continue to impact my community by creating a way for my team and our clients to give to Hampton Roads! Lusso Gives Corp. also has a scholarship fund. This lies near and dear to my heart. I have interviewed countless talented stylists who are unlicensed with the same story of needing to leave Cosmetology School as result of inability to pay tuition costs. I even learned many stylists' defaulted payments to Cosmetology Schools of their choice have resulted in collections accounts that are impacting their financial success. My goal is to make a difference, even if it is only for one aspiring cosmetologist at a time, by giving them an opportunity to obtain formal education and employment upon completion. My commitment is that 100% of proceeds collected to Lusso Gives Scholarship Fund will aid in sending an aspiring cosmetologist to school."
