Last week, Sammy and I had the privilege of going to the American Beauty Show in Chicago!! I had the opportunity to meet and hang out with a HUGE inspiration of mine: Jenny Strebe (@confessionsofahairstylist), I have been following her for years and shes one of my go-to's for looking at hairstyling videos on Youtube. She was so super sweet in person!
Arriving Saturday night, we took to the town and met our fellow volunteers for some coffee and drinks. Fast forward to Sunday and Monday we had the best time and met the most amazing people. We can't wait to go back next year for ABS 2019. Check out some of the awesome braid pics we have below!
Our Groovy Setup:
We had the pleasure of getting to work with some of the best braiders around at the Confessions Braid Bar sponsored by Salon Centric. All of the proceeds from our volunteer efforts were sent to "CUT IT OUT" a Pro Beauty Association in order to strengthen the fight against domestic violence!
The Lovely Ladies of Confessions Braid Bar:
What is "Cut It Out"? WELL, Cut It Out is a program dedicated to ending Domestic Abuse. You may ask, "Why would a salon professional/ hairstylist care about Domestic Abuse?" Good question. We are trying to build awareness and train our professionals to recognize the signs because as a hair stylist we get up close and personal with our clients. We are great listeners and earn the trust of our clients, because of this it is important to be able to not only recognize the signs but also, to know what the next step is.

BRAIDS and more BRAIDS!
^I am absolutely in love with not only this clients hair color but also this braid!!! I can't get over it.
Words can not do this trip justice! I loved every single moment in Chicago. If you have any more questions about the CUT IT OUT movement or ABS feel free to email or message us! Any one of the TeaseHTX team would love to talk.
Cya next year American Beauty Show Chicago!
