Got some exciting Press Release info this past weekend! As most of you know IMATS L.A. this year was moved up to January. In the years past it had always been held at the end of June. I was super bummed about not having an event to go to in June because I look forward to it every year! I was just informed that there will be a Professional Hair and Makeup Expo on June 29 and 30 in Pasadena at the Convention Center!
