Our 2023 AHP Indie Stylist of the Year Courtney “Beauty” Smith made an appearance at this year’s Premiere Orlando event. Beauty joined AHP, and our sister organization Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP), for an evening of fun and dancing at Ole Red Orlando.
The party featured ASCP’s 7th annual Readers’ Choice Awards party, where the biggest brands in the skin care industry were awarded for their amazing products and devices. Beauty was also honored at the event, where she spoke about her inspiring story to success, from barely making enough for rent and gas to becoming a business owner in the $100K club. At the event, Beauty was awarded prizes from My Salon Suite, who also donated to their scholarship fund in her name. You can read all about Beauty’s story in volume 4, issue 1 of AHP Indie Stylist magazine.
