All the promise this hopeful season brings has been a source of inspiration as we planned this issue. It is our great pleasure to debut this new print concept, a combination of the best of our beauty worlds.
Last year, we watched as salon professionals searched for the business information they needed to keep working, while salon owners looked for inspiration and ways to connect to their team.
By bringing together the business of beauty (MODERN SALON) and the beauty of business (SALON TODAY) into one print edition, we hope you’ll find what you need here—career insights, stories from your peers and, as always, gorgeous work created by beauty pros.
We know you’ll especially enjoy reading the stories in Hope Notes (p. 18), in which we asked members of the MODERN SALON Artist Connective to “share what success looks in the face of adversity, including both big wins and surprise silver linings.”
I think Natalie Thomas speaks for many of us, when she says: “I wish I could say I took up a new hobby, started exercising, drank more water, or started up a cool blog. But to be honest with you, I just survived. I took each day at a time, and to me that is worth celebrating.”-- Natalie Thomas @bridal_bynatalie
Celebrating each of you, today and always.
