Kelsey Murray here, the new digital editor at American Salon magazine. This is my first job in the professional beauty industry, so follow along as I navigate my way through beauty shows, brand events, photo shoots and interviews. This blog is a behind-the-scenes look at my first year in the industry.
What better way to mark my entry into the surreal (in case you missed it, this blog IS about my first year in beauty) world of a professional beauty show? First off, I loved every minute of it. “It” being Americas Beauty Show where, according to the post show press release, "more than 65,000 salon professionals and owners, aspiring students and teachers, headliners and educators, leading product manufacturers and distributors gathered at America's Beauty Show, March 21-23, 2015, at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago.”
As digital editor of American Salon, I had the opportunity to meet some of the most amazing professionals imaginable, industry's best and brightest – so of course I took the time to take some selfies to mark the occasion. Here's a look at some of my favorites, in what I know will be the first of many selfie journals for American Salon.
