PBA Beauty Week: Viva Las Vegas!

By Alison Alhamed | 07/17/2010 4:36:51 PM


Just landed in Vegas for PBA's Beauty Week/Cosmoprof and it is HOT! I am super excited about being here in Vegas for the event... the city, the vibe, the people--such an exciting place to be.

I've never been to this show before--never been to NAHA, never been to City of Hope, Beacon or Symposium--and I am PUMPED about this trip!

The flight here was gorgeous. If you've never flown to Vegas before, make sure you snag a window seat on the airplane. You fly right over the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam! Very cool!

The next few days are going to be packed full of education, product launches, events and star-studded parties. Be sure to check back on modernsalon.com for the editor's blogs--OR, "like" Modern's fanpage on facebook.com/modernsalon for up-to-the-minute links to all the latest blogs and articles on this action-packed industry event. Also, the countdown to NAHA is finally in the single digits as the results will be announced tomorrow night during the ceremony (be sure to look out for me and Laurel on stage--presenting the NAHA Texture category, ahhh!!)! If you haven't yet, sign up for Modern's e-newsletter at modernsalon.com/newsletter to get the email listing all the winners of NAHA.... Or, visit modernsalon.com/naha after the event to view all the submissions and check out who the winners were up against!

Visit First Chair's website, for students, young professionals and new stylists, for live blogs from students Lindsey and Dominique, who are attending the educational networking event for the first time and are excited to share their news and views on the event and will be sharing pics of their favorite moments, too! As always, wish you were here... but stay tuned to be in the know!
