The first America’s Beauty Show I attended was in 1961 and it’s been important to my business and me ever since. In 1966 I won the Founder’s Award Competition and in 2006 I was honored to be the keynote speaker and receive the International Legend’s Award. The beauty industry is now an international affair and America’s Beauty Show is a global event in which everyone can remain a student to our craft."
