The East Coast’s top beauty fair of the season, Premiere Orlando, was composed of the two massive stages and 7.3 acres of exhibition floor. It was packed with the top brands in haircare, nails & beauty, with innovations, launches, competitions, and of course, the most inventive looks using these top tools!
Almost 60,000 attendees that collectively represent all 50 states and 35 countries, this is bound to be an unforgettable infusion of everything that it means to “work in beauty.”
Premiere Orlando gave attendees the exclusive opportunity to meet, learn and mentor from the beauty professional leaders they look up to most. This year’s experiences included an adventure with Robert Cromeans, personal workshops to meet with besties with Candy Shaw, the ultimate hangout with Jan Arnold, glamorous session with Anna Cantu, slaying brows with Kelley Baker, #insta Beauty with Larisa Love and after party with Sam Villa!

In addition to hair cutting, styling and coloring, Premiere classes covered texture hair, extensions, weaves, barbering, nails, dayspa, makeup, business and personal development. With a continued demand for men’s hair and makeup education, Premiere has doubled education in these areas.

Through hands-on experiences at Premiere Orlando, Martin Parsons, Christopher Dove and John Simpson, spoke about topics in color, advanced cutting, barbering, extensions, nails filing, nail art, makeup, threading, eyelash and eyebrow extensions.
And the barbers of the world had a lot to see this year.
