MODERN SALON 100 graphic

It's time once again to announce our annual list of beauty industry gamechangers, the MODERN SALON 100!

Every year, the team at MODERN SALON identifies and recognizes 100 beauty industry professionals with our MS100 list; they are primarily hair artists, but we also include nail artists and barbers, and also those focusing on creating content and providing coaching. What they all have in common is that they are doing fantastic things in the salon and on social media.

This list is our way of celebrating the strength, creativity, and excellence of the industry through congratulating these artists on their success. We believe these honorees align with our mission here at MODERN: to uplift the professional beauty community and inspire future beauty pros.

You will see each of these 100 artists featured in our upcoming fall issue of MODERN SALON magazine, as well as on our Instagram page @modernsalon in the coming days.

We will also be honoring our MS 100 artists in person at our second annual Indie Pro Awards and MODERN SALON 100 Honoree Celebration, taking place the evening before our fall edition of Independent Boot Camp. The celebratory event will be held at the Hilton Los Angeles Culver City on Sunday, October 8th.

Visit to register for the ceremony - we can't wait for you to come celebrate with us.

A huge congratulations to our 2023 cohort of the MODERN SALON 100!
