A long-term program launched in 2010 by Wella and UNICEF in collaboration with hairstylists and clients around the world, the WELLA-UNICEF MAKING WAVES program offers the gift of education to vulnerable young people in emerging countries.

Salon Manager in Obrigheim (Salon: Pivot Point Academy)
2011 Mentor in Recife (Brazil).
For Myrlla, the Wella UNICEF program felt really close to home. Although her salon is in Germany, she is originally from Recife in Brazil.
“When I found out the training program would be here (in Recife), I simply cried my eyes out. It was such a pleasure and honor for me to go back and help these young people, some of whom remind me of myself.”
