Imagine the possibilities with a Marinello education. You will be able to pursue your true passion and calling in life ─ a life dedicated to making others look and feel beautiful. More so, you can enjoy a recession-proof career because according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for beauty professionals continues to grow. Many of our graduates become salon or spa owners, hair stylists, makeup artists, beauty instructors, product sales representatives, and much more!


We recently launched our 5th Annual Raw Talent Scholarship Competition. If you are not familiar with it, it is a yearly contest hosted by our school in which we award more than $100,000 in scholarships and prizes to deserving high school senior students who are interested in pursuing a career in beauty. This year and for the first time, it is being cosponsored by Wella Professionals.


There are two parts to the competition. The first part is the essay writing contest. You will need to submit a two-page essay entitled, “Beauty as a Career: How I Can Make a Difference in the Beauty and Wellness Industry.” Your essay will graded by Marinello’s High School Scholarship Committee and will be evaluated based on content, creativity, spelling, syntax and grammar. You have the option of submitting your essay via regular mail or via the Marinello website. Applications and instructions are available online at  (Learn about our 2012 winners here. Read their winning essays and view their work.)


The second part of the application process requires you to participate in the hands-on competition at a Marinello campus near you, where you will perform hair and makeup looks on your own model. If you are interested in the Cosmetology program, you will be asked to perform a formal “updo” hairstyle appropriate for weddings, proms, or special events, and if you are interested in the Esthetics (Skin Care) program, you will be asked to perform your best makeup look. The Marinello school director will take before and after photographs of your work and submit them to the Scholarship Committee for judging. The deadline for essay and photographs submissions is April 22, 2013 midnight Pacific Standard Time.


Sounds simple, right? If you are picked as one of the scholarship recipients, you will be contacted 30 days after the competition deadline and must start at Marinello by September 2013 or lose eligibility for the award.
