After awhile away, prepare for a ton of updates! First of all, I went to ABA Toronto!
The ABA (Allied Beauty Association) has been going on for years, and I have yet to go until this year. Accompanied by my lovely best friend from hair school, we took off to Toronto for two days jam packed with education, new tools, and too much alcohol.
I left for Toronto after work on Saturday, got in around midnight and after tracking down some food.
The show itself was surreal. It was a humbling experience being in a place filled with so many incredibly talented artists. I watched several hours of education including styling, coloring, and business classes. My favourite panel was the Panel of Influencers. It was compiled of a team of famous Instagram stylists sharing their stories and helpful tips for growing stylists.
Of course, the after party was fantastic. Most of the photos are blurry, but so was my vision so it’s okay.
In summary, I spent way too much money, learned a lot, and had an absolute blast! Until next year, see you again ABA Toronto!
