All the glitz and glam of Hollywood arrived at the Salons by JC Chicago location when “Hair Activist” Guy Tang came to town for the America’s Beauty Show produced by Cosmetologists Chicago. The 3-day event is the ultimate destination for serious beauty professionals, with more than 70,000 in attendance every year.
The Hollywood – Chicago Connection
Salons by JC Chicago owners, Bob and Jeana Lang, received an inquiry 3 to 4 months prior to the event from the Guy Tang team. “They were looking at salon suite day rentals to prepare the hair models for the ABS show”, said Bob Lang. In this case, it worked out for them having two double suites available for them to use. “Guy Tang said that the salon was beautiful.” Guy Tang’s team came in on Wednesday to prepare the rooms that were going to be used and worked relentlessly Thursday and Friday until late evening to make sure their hair models would be ready for the show.
