Michaels has worn many hats since his successful career as the lead singer of the glam metal band, Poison. He is an actor, director, screenwriter, producer and the winning contestant of Celebrity Apprentice 3. He is a successful reality television personality and will launch his latest project, Rock My RV on the Travel Channel on May 26.
In addition to the scholarships, Michaels is also joining the cosmetology school students and staff in the fight against breast cancer by replacing their uniforms with breast cancer awareness shirts with the Beauty School Rocks logo. Michaels said for every shirt sold $4 will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Shirts can be purchased through the Beauty School Rocks website.
To kick off the fundraising campaign 40 members laced up to form the school’s team, “Beauty School Rocks,” including Margie Wisniski, chief of operations of ITS Academy of Beauty and its affiliate schools throughout the U.S. Thirty men and women from the schools operated two booths at the race, one in the main expo and another in the kid’s area, and provided thousands of bags with free samples of shampoo and conditioner, coupons and a list of services at the award-winning cosmetology school.
“Our “Beauty School Rocks” team is one of many ways ITS Academy of Beauty and our affiliate schools are championing causes that matter in our communities,”
Beauty School Rocks provides students with a distinguished environment that mirrors many of the upscale salons that will employ the cosmetology students after they graduate and earn their cosmetology license.

In a March 21, 2012 article in USA Today, beauty salon sales grew 5.4 %.4 in the last two years vs. a 2.3% sales increase in 2009. With the Bureau of Labor Statistics projections of 15.7% employment growth expected by 2020, the future of hair salons and the future of hair stylists should continue to grow.
The company owns and operates ITS Academy of Beauty schools throughout Texas and Lawton, OK, Olympian University in New Mexico, Hair Benders Academy in Florida and International Academy of Hair Design in Arizona.
