MODERN SALON’s Independent Boot Camp (October 8 and 9 in Los Angeles) was developed with independent beauty pros in mind, with curated content and an education program that puts solopreneurs at the center.  

This full day of business boosting experiences includes making amazing connection with your peers, coaching from industry experts, plus a lunch to keep you fueled, cocktails to help you celebrate, and a swag bag to take home and enjoy. 

If you haven't been to an Independent Boot Camp (IBC) , here are 10 reasons to join us and get your business in beautiful shape!

10 Things to Know About MODERN SALON’s Independent Boot Camp & Why to Attend

ONE: The night before Boot Camp, we kick things off with an evening celebration of our MODERN SALON 100, a list of beauty makers and game changers who have caught our eye because of their incredible work and their amazing attitudes. Some have 300K followers on social, some have 3k.  It's not the size of the audience but the magic they make for them!

TWO: Also that evening (October 8), we announce the winners of our second Indie Pro Awards, from a field of fan-tas-tic finalists who entered their work into categories ranging from Balayage to Barbering.  Come cheer them on!

THREE: You can write it off!   (If you have done your homework, and you have consulted with your tax professional.)

FOUR: We launched Boot Camp in Los Angeles in November 2021, and we're returning to our roots, bringing our full day of business building education back to LA.  We've been in Tampa, Fort Worth, and Miami, and it will be great to be coming back to Los Angeles, home to so many talented beauty professionals. 

FIVE:  You'll be surrounded by like-minded beauty professional, people who are interested in learning, growing, and thriving in their beauty business. 

SIX: Guy Tang.  He's the original social media influencer, who created a community of #hairbesties and his own brand, #mydentity. He's also just launched his podcast, Tang Talk, and we're going to talk with Tang about all the things!

SEVEN: J. Ladner and Nina Tulio.  This dynamic duo, partners in the podcast, "No Stylist Left Behind." will fire you up about efficiency and pricing in your business. 

EIGHT: Michael and Ramona Woods.  The founders of haircare brand Ashtae will dive into the importance of “MINE-ing your business," knowing your numbers, and managing your finances. 

NINE: Summer Labayen and Shannon Demont.  Gain the skills and confidence to capture your client's images with posing pointers, photo tips, and social strategies from these two talented powerhouses.

TEN: Investing in yourself always pays off.   Join us!
