Jane Wurwand, Dermalogica's co-founder and chief visionary to be honored with a Legacy Award at the Beauty Changes Lives Experience this spring.

Tickets for the 8th Annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience on April 19, 2020, are on sale at BeautyChangesLives.org. Co-presented by Beauty Changes Lives, America’s Beauty Show and Pivot Point, the evening has emerged as the signature event convening brands, icons and industry professionals representing all facets of the professional beauty sector. 

The 2020 event will blend longstanding elements including the Legacy award and runway show with new award categories. Dermalogica Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Jane Wurwand will accept the Legacy Award recognizing her leadership, vision, entrepreneurial spirit and lifelong commitment to professional development.

The 8th Annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience will introduce a new category of awards in 2020--the Make Your Mark awards honoring emerging Next Gen professionals. Whereas the Legacy Award pays tribute to trailblazers who have made an indelible mark on the industry, the Make Your Mark category will celebrate two professionals poised to make their mark via a career in beauty. Two Make Your Mark awardees will be announced in 2020. The awards complement the Make Your Mark national recruiting campaign targeting the fiercely independent and entrepreneurial Gen Z and highlighting the pathways, possibilities and potential available in the professional beauty sector.

Beauty Changes Lives Executive Director Lauren Conway says the 2020 Beauty Changes Lives Experience will feature promising talent “discovered” via the Beauty Changes Lives scholarship competitions. “As we have awarded more than 500 scholarships, we’ve helped create hundreds of truly life changing stories – several of which will be shared during the 8th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience,” Conway says. Winners’ descriptions of their career journeys have become a highlight of the annual event.

“The Beauty Changes Lives Event held during America’s Beauty Show is an opportunity for all of the industry to come together across areas of specialty, geographic region and stage of professional development,” says Beauty Changes Lives President Lynelle Lynch. “By celebrating emerging talent, we are letting the world see the inclusive, nurturing nature of the professional beauty industry where established icons support those just beginning their career journeys.”
