In celebration of Black History Month, members of the beauty community came together for an inspiring "Coffee & Culture Fireside Chat" featuring SalonCentric #ItTakesAPro Team artists and educators Tonisha Scott (@missprettynish) and John Mosley (@popular_nobody). Hosted by SalonCentric on February 5th, 2024, facilitator Katera Jefferson delved into the career journeys and challenges these artists overcame, sharing insights on inclusivity and the ever-evolving landscape of beauty and culture.

During the fireside chat, Tonisha Scott and John Mosely inspired attendees with a discussion about their personal and professional experiences of breaking down barriers within the beauty industry and education. Both artists underscored the need to be better when it comes to inclusivity, not only in mainstream media but also in education curriculum.
