It's called The Gathering and it brings together the John Paul Mitchell Systems salons and styists from across the country for two days of education and inspiration.  The kick off event and wrap up shows are, well, something to behold as demonstrated by the video above which is a recap of last year's Gathering PLUS a tease for one of this year's musical guests, Vintage Trouble.

The Paul Mtichell Artistic Team goes on stage to demo their skills and, in addition, the JPMS team lines up performers that can run the gamut from acrobats to jugglers to extreme athletes.  It's all a production worthy of Las Vegas and attendees consider it the hair show of the year.
