So You’re Going to a Beauty Show—Now What?
Beauty shows are a flurry of activity. Between the stylists cutting and coloring at breakneck speed, towering hairdos, loud music and floods of people, you might find yourself overwhelmed. Well, to get you prepared for Premiere Orlando at the Orlando/Orange County Convention Center from May 30th to June 1st, here are 5 tips to help you navigate the stages, booths and classes with ease! It’s your trip to the beauty show—make sure it works for you!
1. It all starts with a plan
Like most things in life, if you go in without a plan, you’ll end up empty handed with nothing to show except a bunch of wasted time. Map out your trip to Premiere in advance—decide what classes you want to attend, the brands you want to visit, where you want to shop and who you want to network with beforehand. It’s that easy to see industry faves such as Robert Cromeans of Paul Mitchell; Mark Hayes of Sassoon Academy; Sam Villa and Andrew Carruthers; Christopher Dove and John Simpson of CoCre8; Rock Your Hair’s Michael O’Rourke; Farouk’s Anna Cantu, Maurice den Exter, Patrick Kalle and Richard Jordan; and Martin Parsons.
2. Know your wants vs. your needs
You’re star struck by that latest celeb stylist—after all, she cut Jennifer Lawrence’s hair! But you’re a colorist and attending her class just to get an autograph won’t, ultimately, be worth it for your career. Carefully weigh your wants against your needs to make sure you’re getting the technical know-how you desire. You should ask yourself—do I have any skills that need refining? If so, you might want to take a class that will help you brush up on that skill, allowing you to return to the salon refreshed, reenergized and refined. As well, there are more than enough classes to cover both your wants and needs over Premiere weekend.
3. Career advancement is easy and free!
The most important part of any beauty show is the education you find within. Consider Premiere a classroom with 55,000 students in it! By purchasing a Premiere Show Pass, you receive instant access to more than 430 classes—for free! With a wide range of class offerings, you can definitely walk away with more knowledge than before.
4. Go on a test drive
Premiere leaves no crevice of the 7.3 acre Convention Center floor empty. The floor is jam-packed with the largest manufacturers in the industry and having all of these companies (and competitors) in one space is good for you! Expect these top brands to let you try out their tools and products before you purchase!
5. Take the first step
Do you want to specialize in ombré or become the bomb at balayage? Premiere has given you the key to the education you desire—it’s up to you to bring that with you to your salon.
