ABS Chicago: Day Two
by Megan Dorcey on Monday, March 14, 2011
Our feet hurt and our heads are full of inspiration and new ideas to bring into our business. You could say that ABS Chicago 2011 was a success. Not only did we fall in love with the platform artists at Farouk’s stage, but we found new and exciting companies that are going to be on our radar this year.
Yesterday was an amazing day, jam-packed full of floor time, the NaturallyCurly & Modern Salon Texture! panel, and spending some quality time with brands like Schedulicity. We are inspired by this company that understands what a stylist needs as far as an online booking system, and wants to give you the information and tools to keep clients happy. We will be sharing more on this new online booking company very soon!
The Texture! panel was a huge success, drawing a full crowd of curl stylists from across the country. We were so happy to have Hair Rules, Ouidad, Mizani, Deva, GK Hair, and American Crew there to share their knowledge and host demo’s to give a little education to our stylist community. It was definitely an educational day, allowing stylists to ask some of their own texture questions and learn more about the different styles and methods of cutting and styling curly hair.
We are so lucky to be able to participate in ABS Chicago and always walk away with more knowledge, inspiration, and new friends each year!
