Raylon Corp. celebrated its 60th anniversary as a full service distributor with a three day beauty, fashion and motivational show for its salon partners. The event was held September 21-23 at Bally’s in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The more than 4,000 attendees could choose from an array of classes, workshops and 18 theater presentations with headliners that included Tabatha Coffey, Rodney Cutler, Charlie Price, Jay Fata, Jo Blackwell, Carlo Novoa, Pepper Pastor, Mike Karg, Geno Stampora, Wendy Belanger, Justin Isaac, Lauren Hagen and Adrienne Rogers.

One of the highlights of Beauty Palooza was a celebratory party, hosted by Raylon President Josh Hafetz and CEO Howard Hafetz at Dusk, the nightclub at Caesar’s Hotel and Casino. “We have so much to be thankful for, especially our wonderful customers who have been so faithful to us over the years and have helped us to continue to grow our business. We are most appreciative of your support and friendship,” said Josh Hafetz.

Salon owners were enthusiastic following the event and Angie Cambria of Joseph’s Salon and Spa in Boyerstown, Pennsylvania, said, “Thank you for the amazing classes. What an abundance of knowledge—especially the leadership workshop.”

Denise Taylor of Great Looks Salon in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, said, “What an amazing event. The stage show presentations were awesome. I am excited to get back into the salon and use the skills we learned. Happy 60th to Raylon Corporation. I am privileged and honored to work with Raylon. You keep my business thriving.” Visit
