MAC is excited to be partnering with the Melanoma Foundation of New England this May to promote the nationwide launch of a new online version of The Skinny on Skin, a training and certification program for beauty salon professionals.
The Melanoma Foundation of New England began their signature Skinny On Skin program six years ago and has trained over 6,000 beauty industry professionals. As some of the only professionals to closely examine skin on a regular basis, stylists, estheticians, nail technicians, and other skin professionals are in a unique position to spot melanoma on a client long before anyone else. The Skinny On Skin teaches beauty industry professionals how to screen for suspicious moles while performing common salon services.

MAC member foundations will be promoting training in their own communities across the United States. “We at MAC are delighted to be partnering with the Melanoma Foundation of New England to introduce The Skinny On Skin to a wider audience,” said MAC chair Neil Spiegler. “Educating beauty industry professionals is an exciting addition to the many training and awareness activities in which our members already engage. We look forward to using the strength of our combined voices to promote this valuable program nationwide.”
