The 2nd Annual Beauty Business Conference is coming to Washington, D.C.
Oct. 11-13. Hosted by the nationally accredited Bennett Career
Institute, the three-day conference for make-up artists, hairstylists
and salon owners features seminars on how to run a successful beauty
business. From marketing to mutual funds, loans to lawyers, learn the
ins and outs from successful beauty industry representatives. Three top
photographers will provide a seminar for make-up artists on how to
learn lighting, testing and portfolio building.
Night kicks off the conference on Saturday, Oct. 11, from 8-11 p.m. The
entire conference costs $99, and salon and barbershop owners receive
free admission with three registered attendees from their business. For
more information and to register, visit www.bennettcareerinstitute.org.
London-based make-up artist Angela Holthuis and photographer Izabela Habur set a challenge for themselves: Habur
asked Holthuis, a fashion pro, to create “a small story with bold looks
within a small time frame, to test out how far we [could] push
ourselves creatively,” Holthuis said.

2010. The brand will still be sold online at www.prescriptives.com
while inventory lasts.
