What does the next 100 years of beauty look like to you?


“More authenticity and diversity.”


"Is to love this beautiful community that keeps on giving and sharing inspiration with each other.”


“We are going to continue to go digital. Digital color, avatars, artificial intelligence, it’s all going to be there!”


“It’s definitely going to keep evolving!”


“For the beauty industry to continue on, with shrinking the world and marrying together different cultures to be presented as one.”

Annually, America's Beauty Show® becomes the focal point to which the professional beauty industry physically comes together for a three-day event. It is an inspirational, educational and life changing experience. It is the heart of the professional industry, and we are making it a better experience for our membership community and for you.

The 100th America’s Beauty Show was held on April 15, 16 & 17, 2023 in Rosemont, Illinois. The theme for the show was The NEXT 100 where we came together to celebrate what bonds us all, BEAUTY.
