Due to the rising number of Covid cases, The Professional Beauty Association (PBA), the largest and most inclusive trade organization representing the entire beauty industry, has made the difficult decision to postpone January events until the spring and summer months.
NAHA, the most prestigious professional beauty competition and award show in North America, will take place Sunday, April 3, 2022, at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, CA.
Beacon, the elite student program, will also be shifting to April. It will now take place April 2–3, 2022, at the Long Beach Convention Center, where top students from across the nation will gather to learn critical skills to help successfully launch their careers in the beauty industry.
The International Salon & Spa Expo (ISSE) will take place June 25–26 at the Long Beach Convention Center. ISSE 2022 will feature interactive education from the industry’s top hair, skin, nail, and makeup educators and influencers, unique experiences, and new and innovative exhibitors.
"While moving dates is not ideal, we felt it was the safest way to move forward for all in attendance,” says Nina Daily, executive director of the Professional Beauty Association. “Protocols will be in place for the new event dates to ensure the continued safety of attendees and exhibitors.”
Previously purchased events tickets will simply transfer to the new dates, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for refunds and ISSE@probeauty.org for questions. New hotel reservation links will be available in the upcoming weeks for all events.
