To celebrate our April special occasion issue, we have page after page of beautiful braids, buns, twists, chignons and waves to inspire you!

Last month, MODERN SALON launched our Braids & Brides contest, celebrating the talent and skill of our readers and followers. We were blown away by the quality of entries. See the winner’s work on page 46.

This special-occasion issue is also the perfect time for our dedicated HAIR+ editorial focus—arming you with the knowledge to help clients achieve dream hair through salon services, professional treatments and at-home retail solutions for hair loss and hair thinning. Celebrate HAIR+ on page 74.

Plus, check out our Healthy Hairdresser Wellness Guide, which supports you, the salon professional, in taking care of body, spirit and business for yourself but also in providing resources for you to help out others.
