The Professional Beauty Association successfully debuted its first-ever Beauty Pitch finals event during Cosmoprof North America/PBA Beauty Week 2015.
This year's PBA Beauty Week from The Professional Association, hosted by Cosmoprof North America, featured an event unlike any other—to great reviews. The trade association’s much-anticipated Beauty Pitch event in Las Vegas featured five finalists presenting their businesses before a live audience to a celebrity panel and potential investors with the ultimate goal of taking their company to the next level.
The International Salon/Spa Business Network will present its 2014 Legend Award to Pat Parenty, president of the L’Oréal USA professional products division and SalonCentric, at its annual conference. This year's conference, “The Business of Being Social,” will take place at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, May 4-6.
Salon and professional beauty appliances and shears grew 7.1% as a category in 2012, according to the new 2012 Professional Salon & Pro Beauty Industry Appliances & Shears Study from Professional Consultants & Resources, which provides market intelligence and data research for the U.S. salon and professional-beauty industry. Note that the 7.1% growth is 18% greater than the overall salon industry’s growth rate of 6% for the same time frame.
I’m really looking forward to attending the 2012 International Salon/Spa Business Network Conference with its “Be Inspired” theme on April 15-17 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.
What’s the International Salon/Spa Business Network? It’s comprised of more than 50 top salon and spa companies. Every company owns from two to 12,000 salons and/or spas, and together the member companies generate an astounding annual gross sales of more than $10 billion.
