All Wrapped Up: Beauty Expo 2018

Done and dusted for another year, Beauty Expo Australia came and went in the snap of our fingers, and it’s safe to say that it was one crazy and exciting weekend for us here at PBS and we’re sure for all of our salon partners as well.

With a huge presence across the expo floor, we showcased all 12 brands under the PBS umbrella, including our latest recruits, Luk Beautifood and ECOCOCO. With 8 visually knock out and insta-worthy stands, (we practically built 8 retails stores from scratch), our team was pushed to our limits to deliver an incredible experience for salon visitors from across the county, as well as reassure you all why PBS is ‘your complete solution. Highlights included the free Signature Foot Rituals and traditional Fijian signers and dancers at the Pure Fiji stand, the delightfully relaxing Dermalux LED Light lounge, the express peels at Image Skincare and the complimentary wellness body treatments at ECOCOCO. It is safe to say that this has been, without a doubt, our biggest expo yet!

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and took the time to visit the Professional Beauty Solutions corner of the expo floor. We are humbled by the amazing support from so many of our wonderful salons!

The newly launched Sofitel Sydney in Darling Harbour was the place to be on Saturday 8th September, where 150 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the Professional Beauty Solutions (PBS) 3rd Annual Awards Gala Dinner.

The evening kicked off with champagne on arrival, canapes and the beautiful Fijian singers from Pure Fiji entertaining guests with their traditional Fijian songs and guitar playing.

With the hundreds of salon owners and beauty therapists mingling and sharing their experiences of Beauty Expo earlier that day, the evening’s MC, Dani Lombard from Dani Lombard PR started the official festivities by welcoming PBS’ salons, partners and international guests including Youngblood’s international brand ambassador and makeup artist Philip Luque, Bestow Beauty founder Janine Tait, Image Skincare’s international educator Dawn Clifford, and Dermalux’s Managing Director Dale Needham. Guests were treated to a 3-course meal while the talented White Tree Band provided the music for the evening.  A montage of Tanya Hennesy’s comical “things people say to beauty therapists & things people say to spray tanners” was also shared on the big screen, before guests where surprised with a video message from Hennesy herself, wishing everyone a great night and best of luck to all the nominees.
