America’s Beauty Show (ABS) 2022 was all about FUNN. FUNN stands for Flourish, Unite, Network, and Navigate, describing exactly what the beauty came together to celebrate in this epic three-experience. This was a one-of-a-kind industry event that you didn’t want to miss, but if you did, here’s a recap of what to look forward to next year.


If there’s one reason you should undoubtedly attend America’s Beauty Show, let it be for education. In an industry that is constantly evolving, it’s crucial to stay informed on the latest expert-approved tips and trends. The best way to do this is through in-person education surrounded by some of the industry’s top leaders! At ABS, educational opportunities are at every corner. From the classroom to the show floor to the stage, it’s hard to find a space where you aren’t learning.


If you’re looking to connect with fellow beauty enthusiasts and like-minded industry professionals that you otherwise would probably not cross paths with, America’s Beauty Show is the place to be. The convention space leaves no one inaccessible, and you’ll regret not introducing yourself to anyone and everyone you can. You never know who you’ll meet and what you’ll learn!

Show Floor

The show floor of America’s Beauty Show is a blend of educators, brands, students, salon owners, and more. This large and open space is where you can observe professionals showing off their styling talents, chat with brand representatives about their technology equipment, over-spend on beauty accessories, and take advantage of numerous Instagram-worthy photo opportunities. The list goes on.
