Welcome to our first issue of SalonEVO North America of 2022! We have plenty of new and exciting content jam-packed into this issue to get you ready and inspired for the year to come.


We kick off this issue by talking to influential stylists and beauty professionals about what they are excited about most in the coming year – from events to trends, and new tools and products, we cover it all! Starting with an in-depth interview with renowned photographer and award-winning hairdresser, Desmond Murray, who gives us a snapshot of the year to come. Multitalented stylist and educator, Philip Wolff also gives us his forecast for the coming year, with a list of the must-have trends and tools for 2022. Plus, we introduce our newest hair and beauty columnist, Kristin Kaide, who tells us what’s on her vision board for beauty this year.


Next, we peek into some of North America’s most stunning salon interiors. We talk about how to make the most of a big, multifunctional space, like the Stella & Shay hair and beauty salon in Ohio, or how to make the most of a small studio space, like Katie Dutra’s nail art studio in Oregon. We explore the magnificent and luxurious blow dry bar, Wish Dry Bar, in BC, Canada, and talk about essential furniture with Stephen Posta, of Salon Posta.


In this issue, we also explore the world of avant-garde hair, beauty, and nails. We talk to renowned global Goldwell artist, Angelo Seminara to talk about drawing inspiration and creativity from nature. We also caught up with Ulta Beauty Team makeup artist, Deney Adam to discuss his passion for pushing the limits and coloring outside the lines. We also talk hair color expression with Hairstylist of the Year 2022, Cassie Carey. Our cover stars Mia Secret, and their editorial advisor Stephanie Yaggy Lavery, tell us about finding a balance between creative expression, and wearable art, and how one often transfers to the other.


This issue we dive into the sticky stuff… waxing! Vanessa Wood, owner of WAXBARe salon and waxing brand tells us about the do’s and don’ts of waxing, and how you can make an often unpleasant experience as comfortable as possible. The Browtender AKA Crystal Swinder also offers her expertise in the service, sharing how you can create a successful brand and elevate your business with waxing.


Finishing the magazine off in style, we conclude this issue with a feature on Styling and Finishing. We have pulled together advice, tips, inspiration, and must-have products and tools from some of our favorite stylists, so you can update your styling kit for the new year’s hottest trends.
