The International Beauty Show's West Coast edition, IBS Las Vegas is just under three weeks away! Boasting more than 21,600+ beauty professionals, the show is the fastest-growing event in the beauty industry. Packed with education, excitement and inspiration, IBS Las Vegas delivers exactly what you need to enhance your career.
One of the show's biggest highlights is the world class education available to attendees, including 100 free classes, pay-to-attend master classes and hands-on workshops. Leading up to the event, we'll be sharing background information and fun Q&A sessions with several educators that you'll want to add to your list of must-sees. Today, we're highlighting Nick Arrojo, a revered hairdresser and educator with more than 30 years of experience in the business.
At this year's show, Arrojo will be teaching a lively and fun look-and-learn razor-cutting seminar. Attendees will learn how to create space, texture, and freedom for modern creative hairstyles. We caught up with Arrojo to ask him a few things you might be surprised to learn.
