Cosmo Prof, a distributor of professional beauty products and education, reaffirms its commitment to the professional community by bringing their third annual Color the World Event to life virtually on October 22, 2023. With a strong focus on color trends, this event is designed to answer stylists’ demands by providing them with the knowledge and inspiration they need to excel in their artistry.


Since their inaugural year in 2021, Cosmo Prof has seen upwards of 10,000 attendees eagerly join Color the World to learn and grow. The demand for more resounding support continues to rise, driving education as a core pillar of Cosmo Prof’s business. The distributor’s allyship goes beyond quality product offerings with a mission to support stylists by arming them with the latest techniques and category innovation to express their creativity through color.



“We are fresh off the heels of Iconic Blonde, where we saw registration grow by over 75%, making it our largest event to date and confirming the need for continued education. We are thrilled to continue the momentum and support of the professional community with the latest developments in color,” said April Holt, Group Vice President of Stores at Beauty Systems Group.
