Cidesco announces International Beauty Day

International standard-setting body Cidesco has named September 9 International Beauty Day.

The organisation is inviting its salon, spa and school members to take part in activities and celebrate the industry’s most inspiring people. 

International Beauty Day was started by Cidesco’s Russian representatives in 2015, created to “celebrate the importance of being part of a global organisation by recognising beauty industry leaders and visionaries”. 

This year, Cidesco is asking its members around the world to nominate someone who has inspired their career journey in the beauty industry by sharing images and short stories of their chosen person on social media and tagging Cidesco International and #InternationalBeautyDay.

Members are also encouraged to get involved by offering treatments to those in need, putting on special offers, and for schools, arranging introductory talks on where Cidesco qualifications can take potential beauty students. 

Cidesco International Anna-Cari Gund president commented: “We are extremely proud and fortunate to be part of a global organisation that celebrates collaborative studying, close friendships and a strong passion for our incredible industry. 

“With our lives moving as quickly as they are, we can easily forget the faces and characters that we have met along the way. Therefore, this year we are asking our members and schools to stop for a moment and celebrate the beauty icons and inspirational people that have played a particularly special part in their Cidesco journey – of which we know there are many”.

The first London Beauty Week will also happen in September, from 11-15.
