Welcome to the Professional Beauty Federation (PBF) online resource center. PBF is a non-profit coalition of businesses and associations working together to advance the interests of America’s professional beauty industry.

Welcome to Our World Returns to the Capitol

As one of Capitol Hill’s most popular learning events, a salon featuring complimentary haircuts and mini-manicures is created and staffed by professional volunteers. Members of Congress and their staff attend and learn about the professional industry’s key issues, including access to cosmetology education and financial aid, consumer protection, equitable taxation, and small business support.

Industry volunteers and contributors are the driving force behind this event. Along with stylists contributing their time and expertise, PBF is in need of supplies. Manufacturers and distributors can donate tools and products to be a part of this great movement and help make Welcome to Our World a success. Accepted donations may include sample-sized product, not-for-resale product for event attendees, and/or full-size product for our hard-working volunteers.
