Salon Today

July 2016

Our 2016 annual technology issue introduces readers to Alexis and David Thurston, who, with phones in hand, are leveraging Instagram to build a brand for their Butterfly Loft Salons, reimagine the beauty education with Butterfly Circus, and collaborate with artists to launch Pulp Riot. They share their best practices for social media, discuss strategies for getting stylists on board, and talk about the exciting possibilities the platform is opening for them.

In “Education Revolution,” we take a look at how digital learning is shaping the education for future professionals through Pivot Point’s LAB and Salonability programs. Plus, Qnity teams up with Salon Today to sponsor the Emerging Leader Cup for a “Salon Tomorrow” competition—check out the three clever beauty concepts created by these young beauty leaders.

In this month’s Mindset, industry technology leaders debate how future technologies will improve the client experience, while the 2016 Technology & Software Guide helps you compare and contrast the industry’s latest tech offerings.
