The SALON TODAY 200 is the professional beauty industry's landmark salon business competition. Each year, salons throughout North America apply, sharing both their data and their best practices in Growth and 10 additional business categories. The 2020 application is now live, and it includes a brand new category: Salon Leadership!

"Most of our competition categories focus on the salon's operations--such as Compensation and Benefits, Employee Education, or Retention and Referral Programs," says Editor Stacey Soble. "This category is different, it will focus on the strengths of the salon's owner."

The Salon Leadership category will explore what owners actively do to make themselves better leaders, how those leadership qualities have had a positive influence on the business, and what they are doing to create leadership opportunities for their team members which fuel development and growth.
