Photo Album of The Runway and FasciNATURE Collection at ABS

By Lauren Salapatek | 03/13/2012 11:52:00 AM


It's hard not to be impressed by America's Beauty Show's Runway shows. This year featured headliners Angelo Seminara presented by Davines, Beth Minardi, Mark Hayes & the Sassoon Creative Team presented by Wella Professionals, Nick Arrojo, Farouk Systems featuring Rocky Vitelli, Leonel Rodriguez with special guest Miss Universe Leila Lopes of Angola, Wayne Grund presented by Surface, International Trend Vision presented by Wella Professionals featuring Paul Marallah & Omar Antonio, Sonya & Christopher Dove.

Although I couldn't catch all of the Runway shows, I found that the color/cuts from Goldwell's FasciNATURE Collection were very inspiring. Goldwell's Inspiration and Education Team included presentations by John Simpson, Dimitrios Tsioumas, and Timothy Switzer. I also caught a little bit of Angelo Seminara's presentation where he showed the audience how to create a simple headpiece/hairpiece for one of his models. (In the first couple photos below you will see a before and after photo of this.) Beth Minardi held two different presentations during the day, one exclusive ticketed event in the morning and one mid-day, where she taught the audience how to do an "American Baliage" technique.
