Networking and education means making friends and learning more about nails — it's a win-win.

Networking and education means making friends and learning more about nails — it's a win-win.

What is on your education wish list this year? There are now so many great nail networking events to choose from that it’s harder to narrow down the choices than to find something to attend. 

If you specialize in nails, sometimes a networking event or nails-only tradeshow will give you more bang for your buck than a general beauty event. With the focus of these events being nails, you will spend less time fighting crowds of hairdressers and more time taking classes and being able to hear educators one-on-one across the demo table.

There are now nail-focused events on both sides of the U.S., plus the Best lil’ Nail Show Texas, which is right in the center for easy access! For our neighbors to the north, there are also some networking events on each side of Canada!

Here are the 2019 shows and networking events tentatively on my schedule so far:

January: 2019 Nail Those Profits Cruise

April: Best lil’ Nail Show Texas

May: Nail Camp Georgia

June: Premiere Orlando

September: Armstrong McCall World’s Fair

October: NW Nail Tech Retreat

Some notable mentions not on my schedule yet are:

March: Rhode Island Nail Networking Expo

May: ONE Oregon Nail Expo

September: Premiere Philadelphia

September: Utah Nail Expo

Various Dates: Canadian Nail Tech Connection

Date TBD: Massachusetts Nail Networking

I would love to know what you will be attending and what other events are out there. Please leave links in the comments below.

Reopening? Know Your Numbers

by Michele Baker

For those of you that like a little data with your info, here is some really interesting information from salon owner Michele Baker in Georgia. Being one of the first states to open left the salon owners to scramble to learn a lot of things on their own and many have been generous in sharing things they have figured out to help make operating in the COVID-19 world more systematic and understandable.
