Beauty+ Educators

Cara D'Annebale

Our first live-in stylist, Cara, lived at the salon for 6 months teaching advanced hair styling techniques. Having worked for Bumble & bumble NYC for many years, Cara’s skills and education made her an excellent fit for this program. Cara greatly enhanced the skills of our students while improving the overall success of the salon. Cara hopes to go back to Cambodia in the near future to continue her work helping youth there.

Nico Aceves

Nico has been to Cambodia four times over the past three years to help educate our students. As a very accomplished stylist and educator from Bumble & bumble in NYC, Nico teaches our team the latest skills and keeps their services unparalleled in the Cambodian market. Nico’s last stay at the salon was December 2015 and we’re sure he’ll be back again soon.

Sarah Rappolt

Sarah is the education manager Wonderland Beauty Parlor in NYC and has been to Cambodia three times to teach our students. Her fun personality and incredible experience working across a multitude of cultures has helped many of our students gain the skills they need to succeed.  As Sarah puts it, “Working with the Beauty+ Network has been as valuable to me as to the girls we get to teach. Poverty should never be the determining factor on whether you can get a great education and develop as a successful, fully functioning global citizen. Beauty+ has put my hope of everyone having a fair shake in life into action. It’s nice to be able to share 20 years of experience in the beauty industry with girls that are thirsty for knowledge.”

Christine is a skincare expert who got her training from over 10 years working with Clinique in their education department. Christine spent many sessions with our students teaching them about skin and the importance of keeping it healthy as a base for all beauty. Christine’s love for the beauty of all creatures has led her to now work at the ASPCA, where she is the director of their education department.

Sophion Loh

An expert in makeup and beauty, Sophion worked with our students teaching them Bobbi Brown makeup essentials. Coming from Singapore, Sophion brought a great depth of knowledge and experience working with Asian skin and helped our students find looks that were right for their market.
