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.

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.

5 Danielle Wallace Stylist at Beauty Brands Edition Attended : Mar, 2017

I had a blast.loved redken . I think appliance sheers and clipper vendors should have education about different types of tools and how to use them.

5 Jodi Benson Individual Edition Attended : Mar, 2017

I loved Christina Kreitel! She is so genuine, even as music from my phone played because I'm too old to know how to use it. Loved her
