We traveled to Las Vegas on July 27–29, 2019 for Cosmoprof North America at Mandalay Bay Convention Center for a jam-packed weekend of education and excitement.
Exhibitors included Andis, BabylissPRO, Olivia Garden, Reuzel, Revlon Professional, UNITE, Wahl and hundreds more.
In terms of hot products? There’s no shortage on the horizon. Some won’t see the light in Canada for years. Here’s what we were most excited about.

Babyliss Professional has collaborated with four of-the-moment barbers and social media influencers including Stay Gold and Rob the Original creating the Babyliss4 Barbers. The four barbers demonstrated the limited-edition collection of clippers and trimmers at the brand’s booth. Each box also features a different barber’s likeness on box.
When we caught up with CND’s founder Jan Arnold for a conversation about the brand’s ongoing 40th anniversary celebrations, we couldn’t take our eyes off her epic nail art! While we can’t share just yet, you can be sure what is coming up very soon from CND and their artistic team is super-exciting!
Made up of Alpha Keratin 60ku®, these products are meant to focus on hair, strand by strand to smooth, resurface and fill in any and all signs of damage. Their vision? To give everyone the best hair scientifically possible and empower them to change the health, overall quality and appearance of their hair in order to ultimately change the way they look and feel.
Celebrating 100 Years
Wahl celebrated the brand’s 100th Anniversary with a cocktail reception. The company honoured the history of the iconic brand including its founders with a multi-media presentation, as well as paying tribute to international partners who have worked with Wahl in various markets world-wide.
We were blown away by the power of this super-sleek hairdryer. Powered by a 2400W motor, the design significantly reduces drying time. Even better? The powerful motor works at the backend also helps clear dust and debris, preventing motor burnout. Look out, Dyson! Along with their powerful motors, their researchers have also developed advanced technology to improve the overall health and wellness of hair. Their line of hairdryers are also known for being less noisy, while still maintaining high pressure, power and effectiveness to create styles in a reduced period of time.
All About Colour
From bright neons to mysterious hues, China Glaze was one nail company celebrating colour in full force. Along with celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Sesame Street with a limited-edition nail collection, the brand will feature a holiday collection for Halloween, that features a rich, deep colour palette. Plus, a western-inspired one for fall which includes dusty pinks and greys.
