This is the first time Kim Vo has ever celebrated his birthday exclusively with peers from the beauty industry on the day of his birthday and he couldn’t be more excited to connect its celebration with a groundbreaking student competition. A frequent presenter, lecturer and mentor to cosmetology students, Kim Vo explains: “There is phenomenal student talent out there in beauty, fashion and digital art. Often, they don't have the time and resources to create a video entry to effectively translate their work and I want to give as many student teams as I could reach, every opportunity to compete and excel at the Art & Beauty Unbound Student Competition in Las Vegas.” This is aligned with Kim’s mission of promoting quality education and opportunity for all students of beauty and art.
