LONG BEACH, Calif. — Has the silver lining on the salon industry cloud appeared?
The opinion from the organizers of and many participants at the International Salon and Spa Expo, held last Saturday to Monday at the convention center here, was that salons and professional hair care companies have indeed pulled out of the depths of the recession. They pointed to the record attendance of some 40,000 people, up 21 percent from the prior year, and a strong showing by nearly 400 exhibitors as evidence the industry is headed toward growth.
