Every year, the team at MODERN SALON identifies and recognizes 100 beauty industry professionals with our MODERN SALON100 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.



As one way to celebrate this group of talent, industry brands gift them with goodies.  In this 2023 box, we have a beautiful selection including...


- Olaplex Salon Intro Kit: During every chemical service, disulfide bonds are broken and reformed to create a different color, texture, or curl pattern. OLAPLEX’s patented technology mitigates damage by seeking out and repairing broken disulfide bonds during the process. When used together, the two-part system allows salon professionals to push the limits of creativity while protecting the health & integrity of the hair.

- 4-in-1 Moisture Mask: Powered by OLAPLEX’s patented technology, this
highly concentrated reparative mask adds intense moisture while providing shine & body to treat damaged hair. Professional-strength ceramides, oils, and 11 vital amino acids provide a luxurious, in-salon deep conditioning treatment, with or without a chemical service.

- Broad Spectrum Chelating Treatment: This professional-strength, high-potency chelator cleans deep down to the cortex to remove a wide range of heavy metals, minerals, chlorine, pollutions, and discoloring copper and calcium deposits to create a clean canvas for optimal results from all chemical services.

No. 4P Blonde Enhancer™ Toning Shampoo: Highly concentrated purple shampoo cleanses, tones, and repairs while keeping hair hydrated from roots to ends. Sulfate-free formula creates a rich lather to neutralize brassiness and boost brightness after one use for all blonde, lightened, and grey hair.

Repair and protect from styling damage and speed up blow-dry time for healthier-looking blowouts. Achieve lasting body and bounce while maintaining touchably soft, shiny, bouncy hair.
