Education and Social Media Collide at IBS New York 2018

IBS New York

As this year's International Beauty Show New York comes to a close, we can't help but be amazed at all that happened over the last three days. Between energetic Mane Stage appearances, detailed and intricate Finishing Touch Stage demonstrations, and intimate, hands-on classes and workshops, IBS New York was truly an education overload—in the best possible way. 

For those who were unable to join us at this year's show, and for those hungry for more education, American Salon hosted a Facebook Live lounge. We invited some of the best brands and several of their revered artists to join us in a classroom above the showroom floor and demonstrate cutting, barbering and coloring techniques live on our Facebook page. 

Filled with practical tips, engaging demonstrations and fun and energetic educators, the slew of Facebook Lives brought high level education directly to our followers' phones, laptops and tablets around the world. Best of all, even after the lives have concluded, the videos can be accessed at your convenience and referenced whenever you feel necessary. Below, we've linked to each of the eight live videos, along with a short recap of the focal point. Sit back, relax and immerse yourself in International Beauty Show education.
