The Professional Beauty Association Secures Major Victory with Small Business Administration

In a major victory for the Professional Beauty Administration (PBA) and the salon industry, the Small Business Administration (SBA) recently issued a ruling that preserves the small business designation for hundreds of salon/spa businesses nationwide.
