The inaugural group of brand ambassadors, dubbed the SallyCrew, will create content across channels such as Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, and podcasts.
“We’re thrilled to establish this partnership to educate and inspire our customers with the knowledge needed to take beauty into their own hands,” said Carolyne Guss, Group Vice President of Marketing, Sally Beauty. “With expertise across hair color, textured hair and nails, the SallyCrew will further enhance our mission to boost confidence, provide educational content, build trusting relationships and empower consumers to unleash their PROtential.”
