Designed to jump-start beauty professionals’ careers with an infusion of energy, education, and enthusiasm, Empire Education Group’s Future Professionals Expo — which took place in Hershey, Pa., in May — is the largest trade show, expo, and competition event of its kind in the country. This year, students from Empire’s 109 schools in 22 states competed for thousands of dollars in cash, prizes, and advanced education opportunities and learned how to work a professional trade show for greatest benefit. They also attended advanced education classes, networked with fellow students, educators, and industry leaders, tested the newest products and tools for use in the salon, and played during an evening at Hershey Park.

“Your education is just as important as a Harvard education, because you, as beauty professionals, are critical to helping other people feel good about themselves,” said Frank Schoeneman, chairman and CEO of Empire Education Group.

Six months of competitions on the local school level culminated with the national finals and awarding of fabulous prizes in nails, men’s and ladies’ hairstyling, and makeup. The winner in the nail artistry category was Teanna Licorish of Concord, N.C.

Next year’s Future Professionals Expo is scheduled for June 23-24, 2013. For more information, visit www.futureproexpo.com.
