2016 AMERICA’S BEAUTY SHOW


CHICAGO, ILLINOIS—The 94th America’s Beauty Show (ABS) by Cosmetologists Chicago was one of the most amazing hair and beauty shows we’ve ever witnessed! From the moment we entered Chicago’s magnificent McCormick Place Convention Center and saw over 70,000 salon professionals, students and exhibitors buzzing with excitement, we knew we were in store for nothing but the best! The ABS Exhibit Hall boasted 400+ companies showcasing the most essential products for salons and their clients. ABS Nails Central was the place for nail techs to find their favorite brands they’ll be using in the year ahead. The ABS Barbers Gallery was a blast and rocked! We loved seeing all the amazingly groomed men and witnessing all that’s new for the boys! There were three runways, in conjunction with CosmoProf and SalonCentric, where icons of the industry presented hot new trends and education. The Beauty Changes Lives Experience, hosted by ABS and powered by Pivot Point, was a fab late-night affair featuring NextTGen industry artists’ interpretations of a Shout Your Beauty theme. Of course, there was much, much more: The Beauty Bash, The Jerry Gordon Salon Business Leadership Award, over 70+ education classes, ColorFest and so on and so on! We’re excited to present to you, our Sophisticate’s reader, these visuals on what our industry is all about and what you can look forward to at your salon—your personal sneak peek!
