Buy-Rite's Annual Beauty School Scholarship

Buy-Rite Beauty has always made a point to promote the hairstylist, cosmetology & beauty industry as a growing career field. From working directly with local salons to donating products to beauty schools, supporting the industry has always been a staple of our business.

Buy-Rite Beauty will be awarding a $1,000 scholarship to a hairstylist or cosmetology student who best exemplifies our core beliefs. We want to hear about their most meaningful achievement and how it relates to your future as a hairstylist

How it Works

The contest is open to U.S. residents. No purchase necessary. All participants must have applied to or be enrolled in as full-time beautician/cosmetology students. Entries are limited to one submission per person. Immediate family members of Buy-Rite Beauty employees are excluded from this contest.

Submissions for the 2017 scholarship have closed. Please check back in July/August 2018 for more information. 


To apply, students will submit an essay detailing their most meaningful achievement and how it relates to their future as a hairstylist.

  • The essay should be between 500-1000 words.
  • The file name should be your full name, state, and date of birth. For example, Chipper-Jones-GA-4-24-1972.
  • All submission emails must contain the student's full name, date of birth, email address, postal address, school they are currently enrolled in and/or applied to, and a phone number to contact.

Buy-Rite Beauty will select the winner based on the best essay as determined by our internal panel of judges. Selection criteria will include, but is not limited to:

  • Compelling and engaging description of essay topic.
  • Thematic consistency throughout the submission around the central thesis.
  • Proper spelling and grammar usage throughout the submission.

Buy-Rite Beauty will select the winner during the month of December 2017 and will announce the winner on the website pending notification of the student and his or her family.
