Hey everyone! Guess where I went Monday? (Hint: it's in the title! ^) That's right, to the 2011 Premiere Beauty Classic held in Columbus, Ohio. I had an awesome time checking out all the new products and techniques based around hair and beauty. Here are a few pictures from inside! (Please excuse the blurriness, there were loads of people walking around and it was hard to stand still for even just a moment to get a quick picture!)
Some of the booths at the show included: Paul Mitchell, Amika, O.P.I, Sexy Hair, Redken, Bonika Shears, Cinderella Hair, Crown Brush and loads more!
Later, I went to a class presented on center stage by Sexy Hair all about the Sexy Hair products, techniques, methods and latest styles for fall/winter 2011.
The first picture is when the class started when four or five stylists walked out on stage and immediately started cutting, styling and working their model's hair.
|Yes, those are the lucky people sitting in front of me!|
This second picture is when the first round of models were completed in about 10 to 15 minutes and the two stylists in the middle went to work cutting another model's hair the same way while explaining how they were able to switch with each other and work on each other's models and continue cutting where the other had left off.

I had such a great time at this convention and couldn't have thought of a better place to be as a cosmetology student. I can honestly say I learned a ton from the Sexy Hair class I took, but just as well as being by the booths because there were so many live demonstrations to see. Every where I looked I saw people explaining how to use this or that product, helping others learn a new cutting or coloring technique and even how to use and apply extensions. It was amazing to have this opportunity to learn from professionals from almost every major brand and company within the hair and beauty industry. I highly recommend that students and licensed cosmetologists check-out this convention next year if you haven't already this year, you definitely will not regret it!
Plus, I got some seriously great deals on products at the show, so I will have a Convention Haul post coming up soon, you won't want to miss it!
