America’s Beauty Show 2019

Colorful coifs, amazing new products and trending looks…all were to be seen at America’s Beauty Show (ABS)! Held at Chicago’s McCormick Place earlier this past Spring, ABS is owned and produced by Cosmetologists Chicago. This show is the place where professional cosmetologists, nail technicians, stylists and colorists from all over the world gather to experience education and innovation in all aspects of beauty, as well as gain inspiration to take back to their salons. Here, we present just some of the style happenings from the show floor…

You better work those curls!

Gorgeous curly coifs crafted by mane masters Robert Evan Thomas (in silver) and Chadwick Pendley.

A visit with top hair pros Evie Johnson (left) and Jamal Edmonds—and Jamal’s lovely model—yielded a treasure of trend info.

Curly gals were the models of style perfection.
