The Margaret Vinci Heldt
Creativity in Hairdressing Scholarship

To honor the memory of CC’s own Margaret Vinci Heldt, the creator of the iconic “Beehive” hairstyle that swept the fashion world in the 50s and 60s, this scholarship honors Margaret’s contribution to our organization and her lifelong commitment to help others through education. The funds are designated for advanced education in the art of hairstyling.
