01_SalonNV_A4_Issue16I love my job and all the events we get to attend and the people we get to meet. Salon International this year was no different. It was great to see everyone and meet some new faces. The talent was incredible this year. In this edition we catch up with some of the fantastic SHABA17 winners including Claire McColl from Moi beauty and Kate Baxter who won best Lash Artist. Our new salon of the month is Salon Bon Bon where Sue Lever formally of Fudge is the proud owner. From their first salon in Wimbledon 25 years ago to their new academy in the centre of Covent Garden London, you can read why Rush is the fastest growing chain of salons in the UK . We have our regular monthly columns from Emil Mcmahon, Carl Bembridge, Katie Margereson and the queen of daytime TV Arianne Poole shows you how to reinvigorate your salon and increase profits. We also have our Christmas Gift guide with some great ideas. I can’t believe it is that time already this year has flown in. As always we have all the latest industry news and hottest products and some fantastic and inspiring looks in our showcase section. We are always keen to receive any feedback so if there is anything you would like to see more or less of then email me at


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Look forward to seeing what 2018 holds
