America’s Beauty Show 2013 was an epic display of hair, make-up, and nails. The show, owned and produced by Chicago area salon professionals, has a legacy going back nearly 100 years. It has grown into a ‘must go to’ beauty and fashion event that is admired worldwide. America’s Beauty Show is more than a spectacular and unique hairstyle competition; it is also a professional and teaching platform for cosmetologists. The hairstylists take what they learn from the teaching platform and compete against each other in extravagant hair show competitions. The show is one of the largest beauty tradeshows in the world. If you have never attended a hair show competition, they are ‘Over the top enjoyable.’ The contest winners and promotional models for the show are stunning, and unique. One of the contest winning teams created an elegant top hat, masquerade-style mask, and scarf out of weave.
The masquerade theme was a popular during the show. Models wore fantastic Victorian style costumes, complete with masks that covered their entire face. Another winning model wore a colorful candy outfit, with a tousled, fire-like hairstyle. Her make-up was flawless and reminiscent of the bright red, yellow, and orange colors of fall. The most notable look that this model wore was her perfect bob, which beautifully displayed the amazing job the team did coloring her hair. The layered colors of orange, red, and brown were impeccable. The nail event winners created a fantastic, 3-D, snakeskin nail design, matching a white and yellow snakeskin purse. The dancing models wore pastel purple leotards and ballet slippers, poised with fantastically creative hairstyles such as an exquisitely detailed star. America’s Beauty Show 2013 was entertaining for all. Visit the ABS website if you want to attend the next show over March 22-24, 2014.
