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!!"

The Beauty Business Summit is not like traditional beauty conferences.

While there are several beauty industry trade shows that offer value to the beauty professional, The Beauty Business Summit is unlike any trade show or conference.  

The Beauty Business Summit mission is designed to deliver education that will expand your brain and fill your soul.


The Beauty Business Summit has a retreat feel.

We want you to enjoy the learning experience and have the ability to mingle with peers, build lasting relationships, and rub elbows with the keynote speakers, while submerging yourself in entrepreneurial spirit. 

Our wish is that you return home feeling empowered, energized, and renewed so that you can hit the ground running with fresh ideas to grow your beauty business to new heights.

The Summit is a pro-impact event. 100% of proceeds will be gifted to a beauty school dedicated to making the biggest positive impact. The Beauty Business Summit has partnered with thought leaders to help elevate the Beauty Industry by gifting a substantial sum to a deserving beauty school dedicated to making the greatest community impact.
