America’s Beauty Show 2021: it’s back!

America’s Beauty Show 2021 by Cosmetologists Chicago reunited licensed beauty professionals for three wonderful days of in-person education, discovery, and community.

After a long pause, a festive ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off the glitz and glamour of America’s Beauty Show 2021.

The balmy days of late summer in the usually windy city of Chicago made it possible to celebrate the grand opening of America’s Beauty Show outdoors!

Saturday, Sunday and Monday, September 11-13! Three days of America’s Beauty Show 2021 brimming with education and more. There was a star-studded lineup on color, cutting, barbering, nails, business, wellness, extensions and more. Top names ilike The Ulta Beauty Pro Team, Larisa Love, Olivia Smalley, Lala Chihaia, Matty Conrad, Nick Arrojo, Presley Poe, Sydney Lopez, and Jessica Scott were among the many influential educators. ABS ticket holders were also able to participate in a total of more than 20 FREE CEU classes! Moreover, the required classes on sexual assault and domestic violence were offered.

The exhibit floor was abuzz with both new beauty brands and old favorites in haircare, skincare and nailcare. More than 210 exhibitors served attendees with deals and new products. Brands present included Amika, Farouk Systems Inc., “CHI”, ERGO STYLING TOOLS, HALOCOUTURE, Gelish & Morgan Taylor, Malina, Donna Bella Hair Extensions, Hattori Hanzo Shears, Johnny B.
