Professional Beauty Top 100 Industry influencers announced

The Professional Beauty Top 100 Industry Influencer list names the people making the biggest impact in the beauty and spa market right now.

In December, we asked you to nominate amazing individuals that you think are leading the industry forward in 2020. 

The final list brings together 100 business leaders, who between them have created innovative products and treatments, built inspirational salon and spa businesses, led associations driving safer practice, and inspired the next generation with outstanding training and creativity.

The influencers will be celebrated in a special issue of Professional Beauty magazine this summer, and a series of videos via our PBTV outlet that will give you more insight into the impact they are making in the market and the trends that they think will lead change in the future.
