There was a great showing of pedicure chair manufacturers and foot services at the ABS Show in Chicago, March 9-11. Each company had new chairs and features for attendees to try out, and many nail companies hosted free demos of rock star gel pedicures for both beauty professionals and students alike. There was even a booth for the North American School of Podology, which offers intensive education on pedicures and the feet where, upon completion, students can receive a designation of Certified Master Pedicurist (CMP).
