Share Salon Insights - a Mix of Networking, Happy Hour and Education

Event Details

Salon Insights is a new kind of event - a mix of Happy Hour and Education - providing an opportunity for you to mingle with fellow professionals, have fun…and listen to a panel of speakers sharing their experience, tips, insights and opinions.

We will hold the events on the third Monday each month.

Salon Insights is not run by product manufacturers or distributors – the speakers are from Austin salons – people with something to share and each month Salon Insights will cover a different topic that can help you with your clients and your business.

The format of the event is simple:

6:30-7:00 – network and mingle with other attendees

7:00-8:00 – a panel discussion with three speakers – audience interaction and participation is encouraged!

8:00-8:30 – more networking and mingling!

Register now to join us on May15th when the topic will be:
