72nd Annual Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show in New Orleans Weekend Recap

April 2, 2019

Thanks to those who came out joining the 72nd Annual Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show in New Orleans! We are happy to report that the Show attracted a record number of attendees, with more than 40,000 professional barbers and stylists, students, and beauty enthusiasts throughout the three-day event. Because of this success, BB continues to hold the distinction of “the nation’s largest trade show dedicated to the business of multicultural beauty.”

The Bronner Bros. Beauty Show’s goal is to help inspire, educate and elevate
cosmetology professionals, students, and the multicultural beauty industry. All registered attendees get access to panels and workshops to help find motivation and creative inspiration.

In the beauty industry, you should never stop learning, and BB supports that with the educational aspect of the Show. You can customize your experience by choosing from over 100 classes on everything from cut, color, wigs, and weaves, to barbering, skin care, and make-up. Classes also cover natural hair care, hair loss, style trends, and more. The best part? It’s easy on the wallet.

Many trade shows cost hundreds of dollars, but BB is priced right for the value.BB not only gives you access to the exhibit floor but also to the nighttime events and entertainment.

This year enjoy a Second Line kick-off Parade, a “Mardi Gras Cut Party” hosted by Kevin Kirk and a comedy show featuring Marlon Wayans.BB is also the perfect place to mingle. Professionals from the US, Australia, China, Ghana, Paris, Russia, and S. Africa attend. There are an onsite job fair and even business classes to help you improve your salon’s finances, marketing and operations.
