January 2016

WELCOME 2016! And what better way to celebrate big beginnings than by putting a thermal set of epic proportions by Oribe educators Joey George and Coby Alcantar on the cover?

You might have also noticed the “fresh canvas” callout. Not only is January a clean slate to set resolutions for your own professional development—including goal-setting, planning out the year’s education opportunities and which shows and academies to attend—January is also the perfect time to consider revamping your service repertoire.

On page 42, get a peek at what happens at makeup-specific trade shows—how products come to market and how salons can incorporate those launches into their offerings. On page 50 and page 64, get an inside look at a nail academy, and see how you can learn advanced nail art techniques and services. And on page 88, check out how eyelash extension training can up the ante on the total-package approach to your clients’ beauty potential.

Throughout 2016 and across all our content platforms, the MODERN team will keep working to help beauty professionals grow your businesses, even as we continue to expand and build our own. Last month, MODERN SALON Media joined NAILS Magazine and VietSALON at Bobit Business Media to form the new Bobit Beauty Group, the largest, most connected media resource serving the professional beauty community.
