About Us

For over 140 years, American Salon has set the stage for generations of salon owners, professionals and brands to tell their stories. Today, there are new storytellers—from the world-famous professional to the up-and-coming artist. They spark trends. They inspire creativity. They push the envelope to break barriers in beauty. Our mission is to share these stories and engage our professional audience—online and across social platforms, as well as in print. From technical how-tos and step-by-steps to industry news, professional profiles and business best practices, American Salon has long been the industry’s #1 storyteller. We are proud to share new stories here daily .
