This years International Salon and Spa Expo ISSE 2020 was truly exciting!  A three day event that was filled with education, fashion, new trends, and hairstylists from all over the world.

The International Salon and Spa Expo is the one destination happening in Long Beach with an interactive experience in professional beauty. Over 30,000 licensed professionals, salon owners, students and educators, ISSE is the place to showcase the latest and newest innovations, trends, and techniques.

ISSE, The International Salon and Spa Expo offers unparalleled opportunities to promote your brand and products through targeted, customized exhibitor and sponsorship offerings.

After a long invigorating weekend of lots of new information to take home, I’m very excited to get back to the salon and put to practice all that I have learned from my colleagues and friends at ISSE.
Get ready for an amazing year of hair, fashion and color in 2020!
Thank you ISSE 2020!! The International Salon and Spa Exp.

NAHA 2018

If some of you don’t know what NAHA is, NAHA 2018

is the beauty business’s equivalent to the Oscars for hairstylists. I had the pleasure of attending the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA 2018) this weekend in Las Vegas. Let me tell you it was a blast!

The Hair color category

showcases artists that have an eye for the perfect palette and haircolor techniques. Beautiful styles complimented by perfect color placement and an understanding of how perfect color placement pulls together a total look. One of my favorite categories this year at NAHA 2018 was the

Editorial and Session category.

Hairdressers have a  tremendous impact on the world of fashion influencing the looks salon clients. The Editorial/Session Stylist of the Year, recognized for the best consumer or commercial work. Some of the images published in this category are consumer media magazines available on newsstands, electronic or in physical publications.

The Master Hairstylist of the Year category

is an invitation-only category. The industry’s top platform artists, educators, artistic directors and former Hairstylist of the Year’s winners compete.

As a beauty blogger and hairstylist myself,

it’s a great summer treat for MJ Hair Designs. Being around my piers, laughing, drinking, exchanging ideas and photographing the work is a high I always look forward to. Please stay tuned for more of my fashion finds, trends, and pictures …more to come. NAHA 2018. Thanks for visiting my beauty blog.

Great day styling the hair of The Boss Baby producer Ramsey Ann Naito, director Tom McGrath and his beautiful wife Brieanne Cameron for the Oscars.

It’s always so much fun for me when it comes to the awards season. It allows me to really get creative and really glam it up for folks. This year at the Oscars, I had the pleasure of styling for The Boss Baby team. They were so amazingly gracious and let me have a little fun in doing what I do best. Styling, Cutting and Coloring hair for the awards or the Oscars is a real blast!

If you feel like being a star one day, you too can feel what’s it’s like to go to the Oscars. Why not treat yourself. Why not book an appointment. Whether, it be for the Oscars, a wedding, or just a simple party, come see Michael Joseph at MJ Hair Designs.

Everyone has the right to feel like a star for at least one day.
