Holiday 2015

Now that it is officially Fall, it’s time for full-speed-ahead planning for your busiest and most profitable time in the salon—the holidays!

To get you inspired and up-to-date on this year’s hottest holiday trends, services and special promotions and gifts, CosmoProf and Armstrong McCall again worked with brand partners to collaborate on a HOLIDAY BONUS custom issue of MODERN SALON.

Subscribers received this extra issue with their regular August MODERN, and hopefully have already studied and discussed it with your sales consultant, plotting your holiday promos and plans. If not, now’s the time! Use this handy digital edition to refresh your holiday strategies. Forward the link to your salon team and commit to putting your best holiday brainstorming in motion!

Also, be sure to check out the Holiday Gift Guide and ask your sales consultant or store professional to review all the valuable and creative brand offers customized for Holiday 2015.
