Join amika, Joico, Moroccanoil, OLAPLEX & MORE on July 17 for Cosmo Prof’s Iconic Blonde Virtual Event

Cosmo Prof, one of the leading distributors of professional beauty products and education, is thrilled to host their first-ever blonding and bonding-focused virtual event, Iconic Blonde, on July 17, 2023


Iconic Blonde’s curriculum incorporates top experts from industry-leading brands such as amika, Joico, Moroccanoil®, Nu Standard, OLAPLEX, PRAVANA, RUSK Haircare and WELLA Professionals. Each will join the event to share their latest products and unique insights into new blonding techniques and the importance of bonding technology. Classes will include topics such as:


  • Matrix, Blonde Genius: Blonding is not one-size-fits-all. Educators will review classic and modern blonding formulas, tips and techniques for creating the blondes your clients want. Stylists will also learn about common blonding mistakes and how to avoid them.
  • Ouidad, Carefully Colored Curls: A simplified approach to providing clients an introduction to blonding while preserving the integrity of their curls. Attendees will also learn how to properly prescribe Ouidad at-home care and treatments.
  • Nu Standard, Restoring Hair Wellness for Traumatized Blondes: Maintaining the hair’s health after the stress of the blonding process is challenging, especially for textured hair. Professionals will learn how the Hydrasilk Hydrating Bond System can level up their haircare services through a wellness bonding experience for eager clients seeking healthier-looking blonde curls.


“As we enter our first year with Iconic Blonde, we are excited to create a new legacy event that will tie into our other impactful education moments, such as Color the World and World of Texture—which both saw high attendance this past year. The blonding and bonding categories are growing rapidly. We want to equip stylists with the knowledge, tools and the latest techniques to hone their skills,” shared April Holt, Group Vice President of Cosmo Prof Stores.


Iconic Blonde will be hosted by two of Cosmo Prof’s Artistic Team Members, Presley Poe (@presleypoe) and Jon Carlos De La Cruz (@joncarlosdelacruz), both specialists in creative hair coloring and style transformations.
