Make ABS Experience a Real Feast

Held on March 9-11, 2013 in downtown Chicago, America's Beauty Show is a lot like the biggest brunch buffet in the world. It's a smorgasbord of visual delights, a cacophony of sounds, a taste of the trends of tomorrow, a chance to touch what's new…and buy them too.

Just weeks away, ABS2013 will give you that full feeling if you give it a chance. Take The ABS Runway…it's FREE with admission and runs all day Sunday, March 10.

You'll see the latest from the Vidal Sassoon team from London; watch Tabatha Coffey of TV fame introduce her new extensions venture; delight in Kim Vo's inside Hollywood celeb color tips; applaud Saco Academy of London and Montreal; and delight in Tracey Hughes Australian point of view for her spectacular hair work.

It's like a trip around the world of beauty without leaving downtown Chicago.

Step-up and sign-up for a Master Class on Monday, March 11. Tabatha, Kim, Saco and Tracey will teach the how-to and why-for of creating the looks saw on stage.

Or, give just three hours of ABS-time to a serious workshop. Choose from lessons in braiding, hair cutting for texture, today's barbering, up-do's (prom time is coming), special cutting techniques for long hair, the mysteries of make up, and business building advice on profitability. Adding a Pivot Point Meta class will take your spring/summer styling to the next level.

If you live-to-color-hair…. ColorAmerica at ABS is for you. From balyage to chemistry, painting to perfect retouching, the classes are advanced, the profit potential endless. There's even a full day hair color certification class…and the exam to Board-certify you.

What else will round out the ABS educational feast? How about a couple of shorter classes on the newest nail services or innovative facials or some of the manufacturers' high-tech classes that give product knowledge without the pitch.
