Texas Beauty Show 2008

The Texas Beauty Show, now in its fifth year, will be held October 26-27 at the Dallas Convention Center. Expected to attract more than 6,000 industry professionals, it is the largest distributor-independent event in the southwest United States. The event will feature more than 200 exhibitors, over 100 classes for continuing education, and a main stage with demonstrations from some of the industry’s leading platform artists.

This year for the first time Martin Parsons, renowned international educator, school owner and platform artist will appear for this event.

Parson’s fast-paced, entertaining presentation will highlight the latest looks including fabulous finishes on short and medium-length hair as well as special occasion up-styles for long hair. His finale will comprise a parade of elegant hair matched with colorful and sumptuous gowns designed to inspire.

Also on the main stage, Salon Source will present Anthony Morrison, a Joico artist and 2007 winner of Bravo’s Shear Genius. One of 12 nationally selected hairstylists who went head-to-head in challenges that required more than just talent with a comb and scissors, Morrison wowed judges with his execution and style. As the competition’s winner, he received the grand prize of $100,000 in seed money from Nexxus and the opportunity to style hair for an Allure magazine photo shoot.

“As the focus of the Texas Beauty Show is one of education, we are proud to have two very talented and inspiring artists join this year’s main stage line-up,” exclaimed Steve Farrer, executive director for the Texas Beauty Show. “Each year, the show offers new exhibiting companies, products, classes and artists for the benefit of beauty industry professionals in Texas and surrounding states. I look forward to this being the biggest and best show yet.”
