We've been bringing the salon industry together in Chicago every Spring since 1924!  
America’s Beauty Show is a gathering of salon professionals, where ideas are exchanged, trends are shared, education is offered and branding is built. ABS is an excellent opportunity to meet other salon professionals, while generating leads and making sales!

America’s Beauty Show by Cosmetologists Chicago Invites You to Exhibit!






America’s Beauty Show 2017 has been acknowledged as one of the most powerful events making an impact in Chicago!

“America’s Beauty Show is the engine that runs our not-for-profit association, Cosmetologists Chicago (CC). With more than 14,000 members, CC supports all segments of the professional beauty industry – hairdressing students and schools, salon/spa owners, employees and independent contractors, distributors and manufacturers.

“From our many scholarships and the ABS Global Image Awards competition to our support of HairWorld competitions; from the new Nail Technician Certification programming through our International Nail Technicians Association (INTA) to bringing new energy and education to estheticians through CIDESCO Section USA, Cosmetologists Chicago is far from the local group of hairdressers who started it all more than 100 years ago.

“We are now an internationally recognized powerhouse in a dynamic, ever-changing industry. It’s your support through exhibiting at America’s Beauty Show that allows us to give back to the industry and professionals we represent. Thank you.”
