Ten years ago, when the tragic events of 9/11 happened, many of our MODERN SALON Media team was doing what we still do today—busily traveling and working to cover salon industry events, trends, education.
NY-based Beauty Director Maggie Mulhern was on her way downtown to a photo shoot. SALON TODAY Editor Stacey Soble was in Los Angeles attending a spa management conference. Editorial Director Michele Musgrove was enjoying a quiet, radio-free commute from Chicago to MODERN’s suburban offices during her first week back from maternity leave.

Argenti spoke enthusiastically about how their brands, educators and networks of salons are helping stack the deck to help stylists and colorists succeed in spite of the economy.
