It's that time of year.
Spring time in New York. Also known as, International Beauty Show week!
In case you don't already know, allow me to share with you a not so little event that is sooo very necessary to your beauty culture. This event covers absolutely EVERYTHING the world needs to continue to be a prettier place day after day! It is a "For Professionals Only" event. So, you need an Industry license (or currently be enrolled in a cosmetology school) to attend.
There are more than 100 educational classes, including cutting, coloring, make-up, nails and business classes. Industry legends grace the MainStage with brilliantly, creative performances. There are miles of exhibits and in-booth education taking place throughout the day, with thousands of products and tools to enhance your creativity! The event is 3 days in total. And attendees can choose to attend all 3, or 2 or 1, depending on what their schedule allows. I can speak with confidence saying that 1 day is NEVER enough! Sadly, I personally was unable to stay and play for all 3 days, as I would like. But I did make sure to squeeze as much as I possibly could out of my Sunday! Enjoy some highlights from my day!
1st stop : Rhythm of Hair, presented by Woody & Amy Michleb: Master Colorists, International Judges & passionate educators!
