Modern Salon "Excellence in Education"LINCOLNSHIRE, IL—MODERN SALON Media has named the 2011 class of “Excellence in Education” honorees in its annual program recognizing leadership and best practices among cosmetology schools.

MODERN SALON Publisher Steve Reiss and MODERN SALON’s First Chair Editor Alison Shipley announced the class of schools during the AACS (American Association of Cosmetology Schools) at its fall 2011convention in Phoenix.


Hundreds of entries were submitted from cosmetology schools from across North America, in eight categories ranging from marketing to placement to school culture. Finalists were determined in four classes based on school size or number of locations, with one overall honoree from all applicants named for each category.


“Based on the volume and caliber of entries received, it is clear there are many wonderful schools doing amazing things to secure a beautiful future for the professional beauty industry,” said Associate Publisher Michele Musgrove.  “We will be showcasing many of the applicants’ stories, accomplishments and best practices in our magazines, web sites and e-letters.” (A complete list of finalists in each category and class size is listed below.)


Sharing stories of innovation, inspiration and collaboration from a diverse group of leading schools is an important part of MODERN SALON’s “Excellence in Education” mission,Musgrove explained. “We want to help spread the word about the exceptional work cosmetology schools are doing to help launch beautiful careers. Small schools, large schools, chain schools and single units of chain schools are all represented.  We hope the professional salon industry will join us in celebrating them, and will help us grow and evolve the “Excellence in Education” program for 2012.”
