The Bronner Bros International Beauty Show was established in 1947 meaning they will celebrate its 70th anniversary this year, 19-21 August. It started with the two brothers Dr. Nathaniel H. Bronner and Arthur E. Bronner alongside their sister Emma Bronner at the Butler Street YMCA in Atlanta when they began teaching cosmetologists.
Today, they are best known for their annual convention, mainly for two reasons:
Teaching classes with over 300 exhibitors where professional companies specializing in hair, skin care, barbering, nails, natural textures, business and more teach the fundamentals in each category. Many celebrities have been seen at their previous shows, for example Rick Ross, K. Michelle, Ray J and Princess Love.
They have many competitions but probably the most famous one is the Fantasy Competition where participants make incredible and in some cases absurd, hairstyles. The prizes are not bad, for 1st place you get 1.000$, sponsored prizes and many smaller prizes from Bronner Bros.
