America's Beauty Show® is your Midwest Beauty Show® 


Celebrating our 95th Year in 2018!

With inspiring events, education and innovation in all aspects of beauty during the 3-day event, more than 80,000 salon professionals and owners, aspiring students and teachers, headliners and educators, leading product manufacturers and distributors always have an amazing experience.

Owned and produced by Cosmetologists Chicago (CC), the independent association with more than 10,000 beauty industry professional and student members, America's Beauty Show boasts many firsts in beauty industry trade events.

“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 attending or exhibiting at America’s Beauty Show that allows us to give back to the industry and professionals we represent. Thank you.”

- Larry Silvestri, president, Cosmetologists Chicago; COO, Mario Tricoci Salons and Spas
