We then dive into our first feature which is inspired by Pride. It is about celebrating the diversity and acceptance in this industry, while also spreading awareness and education on how you can promote inclusivity for all genders, sexualities, and identities in your salon. Featuring advice and stories from Salon deZEN, the Dress Code Project, and Taylor Leven. As well as many other salons and businesses that are making moves to make this industry more accepting, tolerant, and inclusive.
Along the lines of embracing change, this issue we talk about the latest innovations in technology, that can help you streamline your business, increase profit, and make more time for doing the things you love. We caught up with Ted Gibson and Jason Backe to talk about their futuristic salon, Starring. We also discuss everything from the practical to the futuristic, from handy apps, booking software, AI-enabled digital hair color systems, to VR, and microchip manicures.
Next, we take on texture. From techniques, and products, to what we need to be doing in this industry to make it a more diverse place. We talk to industry icons, such as Michelle O’Connor, Daisy (Daze) Henson, and Angela Stevens about embracing and protecting the curl and the best products and tools for creating show-stopping looks.
NAIL SALON INTERIORS
Finally, we talk nail salon interiors, and the best furniture and tech to complement your mani-pedis. We catch up with the queen of bling herself, Ms Jenny Bui, to talk about incorporating sparkle into every aspect of salon life. Whether your salon is all about the bling or is cool and chill, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your aesthetic for functionality, and vice versa!
