Face & Body® Midwest 2012: Co-location at Its Best

Face and Body Midwest 2012

When a small group of salon owners came together in 1912 to form the Chicago Hairdressers & Wigmakers Association, the goal was to support and help each other build a better beauty profession and business. One hundred years later, that small group is today’s 7,000-member Cosmetologists Chicago (CC). Each year, CC produces America’s Beauty Show® (ABS) and brings together more than 50,000 salon and spa professionals for the best in education, fashion and collective beauty energy. And once again this year, Face & Body Midwest will co-locate with this great event, offering attendees skin and hair care experts, products and information. One registration gives access to both shows!

Face & Body Midwest and ABS invite all skin care and salon professionals to celebrate the 100th anniversary of CC on March 3–5, 2012, at McCormick Place West in downtown Chicago. Attend both events with thousands of skin care and salon professionals to learn what’s new, what’s important and what’s on the horizon in beauty.


Both Face & Body Midwest and America’s Beauty Show will feature excellent and in-depth education and opportunities to celebrate your profession. Highlights include:

CC’s 100th Anniversary Celebration. On March 3, 2012, this celebration will honor the people, talent and give-back attitude that has been the hallmark of CC for 100 years. The celebration will bring together everyone in the salon industry for a night of stars and celebration, benefiting the CC Presidents Scholarship Fund, which awards advanced education scholarships to members each year.

Face & Body Midwest Advanced Education Conference Program. This year’s exclusive program features product-neutral sessions in topic-related tracks, providing a variety of education opportunities focused on particular areas of the industry. Available educational tracks include: Business Solutions, Treatment Techniques, Skin Science and Medical Esthetics.
