Cosmetologists Chicago Announce 2016 America's Beauty Show Dates


Cosmetologists Chicago has announced the dates for the next America's Beauty Show (ABS). ABS 2016 will be held March 12-14, 2016, at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago. The annual event promises many surprises, exciting events, and top education, as well as speedy exhibit hall check-in, especially for Cosmetologists Chicago members, who are admitted free of charge.

Cosmetologists Chicago is dedicated to making sure every hairdresser has an exceptional experience at the show. To that end, the Club@ABS is a chic space for salon professionals to mingle, plan their shopping strategy, take in gorgeous hair or take a selfie in front of the Chicago skyline background. The Club@ABS is complete with cabanas, and is the perfect spot to rest up before or after embarking on the ABS exhibit floor. Exclusive to America’s Beauty Show, pros can take in a high-end fashion presentation on jumbo screens featuring Spring/Summer runway fashion from all over Europe. Pros can even get a quick massage, order a coffee or even grab a cocktail in The Club@ABS.

There will be a double dose of exciting beauty and fashion edutainment, as you take in the TWO Runways@ABS, one sponsored by CosmoProf and one sponsored by SalonCentric. Check out both throughout your show experience and don’t miss any of the superstar stylists on stage; learn the latest in cutting, coloring, styling, texturizing, and more.

Hundreds of manufacturer companies exhibiting hair care, skin care, nail care, hair color, tools and sundries will be showcasing products and education at ABS. They offer everything you need to become the best professional, and the best salon you can be.

Pros who specialize in a single facet of the beauty industry will find areas of interest on the ABS exhibit floor. The Nail Network Center focuses on the needs specific to nail-techs. The Barbers’ Gallery is for those who are into men’s cutting and styling. Face & Body Midwest, the show for skin care pros, once again down the hall from America’s Beauty Show. Your admission allows you to go freely between the two exhibit halls.

Cosmetologists Chicago will again co-host the fabulous Beauty Changes Lives Legacy Award evening on March 12, during America’s Beauty Show. The 2016 honoree is the well-deserving Howard Murad, M.D., founder of Murad.

In addition to America’s Beauty Show, Chicago offers sights to be seen, great food to enjoy, world-renowned museums, music destinations, and art exhibits to visit.
