The July issue of MODERN celebrates beauty and “wearing it well,” no matter your client's age. In Style Watch, learn how eyelash extensions can change your client’s appearance and self-image in just one appointment. And don’t forget the kids—when it comes to products for children, gentle and safe are the two key words—check out some of the newest “just for kids” lines in Product Spotlight.

Inspired by a premonition of her future self, stylist DJ Victory invites three of her clients to become “Glamour Grams,” to prove bold haircolor isn’t just for young clients. In Formal & Flawless, updo king Martin Parsons brings his best with a collection of formal styles for any age or occasion—plus, he shares some of his best-kept secrets for smoothing and building a strong foundation.

Rental is a sensitive and complicated topic that many hesitate to talk about openly. This issue of MODERN SALON includes a special 18-page report on "Rental Realities.” Based on our research of rental stylists, non-rental stylists, former rental stylists and owners, it addresses the perceptions and realities, plus the tax, legal and business issues stylists and salon owners need to consider. Our goal is to give you--the salon professional--the information you need to make your best decisions.
