The Joe Francis Haircare Scholarship Foundation memorializes the life and achievements of Joe Francis,
founder of The Barbers Corporation and the franchise systems: Cost Cutters, City Looks Salons, and We Care
Hair, now Regis Corporation subsidiaries.

Joe Francis’ story is literally one of rags to riches, beginning his first job as a shoeshine boy for a local
barber school. His labors eventually led him to enroll as a barber student where his entrepreneurial spirit
flourished and his lifelong career in the industry took off. He built state of the art hair salons and began
franchising first as The Barbers Hairstyling for Men and Women, Inc.

He took his company public and established The Barbers Corporation. The Barbers grew to 1,200
franchise hair salons in the United States and Europe. Joe began with a one-chair barbershop, a self-made man
who never forgot his early struggles and continuously looked for ways to help others find opportunities in the
hair industry. Joe Francis was inducted posthumously into the National Barbers Hall of Fame.
“The Scholarship Foundation was Joe’s dream. We have awarded 450 talented hairstylists and barbers
with scholarships and we look forward to continuing our support of careers in the industry,” explained
Florence Francis, widow of Joe Francis, Chairwoman, and Co-Founder of the Foundation.
Joe’s daughter, and President of the Foundation, Barbara Francis, announced, “My Father worked
tirelessly to strengthen the industry and elevate the hairstyling profession. He believed it offered a path to self-fulfillment and reward.

He was determined to help deserving individuals launch their career. He wanted to
give back to an industry that gave him so much.”
Applications for future scholarships are accepted from January through June 1st of each year, with
award notifications made each September.
