3 Anna Hair Dresser at Annie's Lil Loft Edition Attended : Apr, 2018

I never figured out how to book classes I thought it would be first come first serve. I never received a book and online I never could figure oout classes for free to reserve. Got to show never seen a sign for class rooms . It shouldn’t be that hard. I’m busy and don’t need the agravitation. Not a easy website. Mixing paid forclasse classes with pain for classes. Disappointing

5 Monica small space at The Studio Edition Attended : Mar, 2017

Here is my feedback: I have gone to the show for the past 20 years I have seen it change throughout these years. Big Big changes in the industry. The show is always energetic and you pick up something.

5 Paula Nygaard LMT spa at Wake up Beautiful Edition Attended : Apr, 2018

We enjoyed the show very much. The registration could have went a little smoother and we had a little trouble finding some of the classes. But over all we would do it again. Thank you!

4 Marcy Smith Nail Tech at Absolute Relief Massage and Nails Edition Attended : Mar, 2017

Since was my first time attending, I thought that things went fairly smoothly. I just was confused at times about the floor layout. I would've thought that the numbers given to the vendors, would have made more sense.
