Upland, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2011
The Professional Beauty Federation of California is an organization that’s dedicated to raising the level of professionalism in the industry and advocating on behalf of the beauty professionals in the state. The owner of Salon Success Academies, Bob Gross, is a founding member of the PBFC and also the newly appointed chairman. Bob has helped establish the PBFC as the united voice for the California beauty industry and has accomplished some major milestones with the organization.
“I am dedicated to making the beauty school programs as relevant as possible for the students, so they have a better chance of being successful after graduation,” Bob said. “I’m proud to say that Salon Success is one of the most progressive beauty schools in the state, with proven leadership in the industry.”
Even before the PBFC was created, Bob was working to protect the rights of beauty professionals in the state government. He helped pass a new bill that allowed students to pre-apply to the state board exam while still in beauty school. He also co-authored a bill that created the externship program and allowed students to work in a salon as part of their education.
In 2000, Bob played a pivotal role in the creation of the Professional Beauty Federation of California. He was a founding board member, the vice chairman, and also served on the executive committee. Over the last 12 years, the PBFC has successfully reformed beauty school curriculum and recently modernized the state board exam.
“As a beauty school owner, Bob understand every facet of this industry. And even better, he’s politically savvy. His contributions to this organization are invaluable,” PBFC Board Secretary Fred Jones said.
For the next phase of the organization, under his new leadership, Bob has new set of goals and a new vision for the PBFC. He’d like to provide exclusive services to PBFC members, like continuing education classes and product discounts. Another major initiative will be to reduce the liability to salon owners and create a website with all of the resources someone would need when opening a salon or spa.
