The smartest beauty industry professionals return to the Beauty Business Summit™ year after year for one reason. The content!  Expect to gain more confidence and learn what to do next in your business to accelerate your career.


Plus, this is the only event with a dedicated focus on leadership, business, and marketing. You won’t find this depth of training anywhere else.


You will leave BBS with pages of notes full of actionable growth strategies that you can apply the second you return home.

Beauty Business Summit 2022 - be inspired

BE INSPIrED

The second reason the smartest beauty industry professionals keep returning to the Beauty Business Summit™ is for a dose of inspiration they can’t find at any other conference within the beauty industry. The energy is positive and contagious, hopeful and uplifting! 


That’s why we put people on the main stage who have actually done it. Hear heartfelt stories, ideas, and strategies from speakers such as Mike Michalowicz, Terri Wojak, Joyce Brinton, Michele Valeri, Barbara Devlin, Maxine Drake, and more. You will leave BBS feeling inspired to take your business, leadership, and marketing efforts to new heights. 


Most important, you will leave the Beauty Business Summit™ with a plan. A plan to grow your beauty business. A plan to grow your brand, and most importantly, a plan to grow profits.

MAKE LIFELONG CONNECTIONS

Expect to engage in rich conversations with fellow beauty business owners who have faced similar problems and who understand your challenges.

The Beauty Business Summit provides a sense of intimacy, kinship, and empathy that is difficult to replicate digitally.

Form meaningful, long-lasting relationships with fellow beauty professionals over a drink or a sunset walk after a day of learning.

Share meals and enjoy connecting with potential future partners, fellow business owners, and speakers (who are not off-limits). Breaking bread together is more than just food. It’s an act of sharing and communion. We encourage you to sit next to someone new at mealtimes and enjoy heart-to-heart discussions.

The beauty business SUMMIT™ pays it forward

Apply for the $10,000 BBS Leadership Grant for your Spa Business!


In a world where many owners have felt discouraged, the Summit brings hope and opportunity.


We continue to stimulate the economy, reward leadership, and give back to the community!

 
We have gifted $40,000 in total since 2018.


BBS is the first-ever luxury event with a pay-it-forward concept (Pro-Impact). Each year we think of new ways to raise the bar to “wow” our guests.

 
The Summit team will select five salon/spa business owner finalists to share their vision on stage at Summit. (Event ticket not included).


All attendees will vote for their favorite beauty business owner based on their presentation and who will make the biggest impact in their business and community with the grant winnings.


As an attendee, you get to decide which beauty business owner receives $10,000! Pretty cool, right? If you are a licensed beauty pro and own a salon or spa, why not apply?

What Attendees Have To Say


Karen Shealy

" I attended the Summit last October and HIGHLY recommend the experience for any Esthy wanting to level up their knowledge base. It was my favorite inspirational conference in my 12 year career with many inspiring professional industry leaders! My favorite quote I have been using since is “just jump off the cliff!” Just book it! You won’t be disappointed!"

Stacy Allende

" The Beauty Business Summit has been an amazing experience. We learned vital information for our business to thrive and we met so many beautiful beauty professionals from across the country. It has been wonderful to make so many new friends and to get to meet our industry leaders in person. Including having a meal with them with the VIP experience. I would highly recommend attending to elevate your business practices and standards. I will definitely be attending again."

Janet Faello

" Maxine Drake is an absolute Godsend. Such a wealth of knowledge that she so eagerly shares to help you obtain optimum growth and success. Highly recommend!"

Yukie Stauffer

" My business has changed in an amzing way since I attended the Summit last year! This conference was very personal and inspiring, nothing like I had ever attended before. I applied what I learned after the Summit into my business and my business gross has more than doubled. I am attending this year's Summit in FL and can't wait!"

Kay O'Day

" I had the pleasure of attending the first Beauty Business Summit in Hawaii. What a transformative experience to share with a wonderful group of women/business owners that understand the beauty business and that can relate to each other on so many levels. Maxine Drake was a wonderful hostess, speaker, and event organizer. I highly recommend attending this unique and one of a kind event."

Lorrie Smith

" If you are looking to take your business to the next level - this is a must- attend event. From the moment you arrive, you will be immersed with motivational speakers to enable you to think outside the box to empower yourself to be an industry leader. I believe one of the key things I took away last year is that I connect and have gifts to share with my clients that they only can get from me. The summit empowered me to step out and take the chances that others may not. What are you waiting for, get your ticket today!!"
