2022 Salon Today 200

Page One

The 25th Annual SALON TODAY 200!

This past 18 months has been a wild ride for most businesses, but especially salons, spas and barbershops. Historically, our ST200 for this year would have closely examined 2020, but we don't feel it's fair to focus on sales revenue growth. 

So this year, we are continuing to pivot the competition this to focus instead on what you've been working on since reopening after the pandemic, specifically what you're doing to recover and rebuild your business.  That means we will continue to table our ten best practice categories this year, and the 2022 will have one robust essay. And, while we'll ask for and examine your sales revenue for 2020, we won't be publishing sales info on individual salons this year. 

Have a great best practice idea you were planning on writing about? That's still great content for your overall essay!


SALON TODAY 200 Processing Fee: This year, we are only able to accept the online applications. And the processing fee is $75 when you submit your application. Deadline is Sunday, October 31st at midnight PST !

The SALON TODAY 200 will be published in the Spring 2022 issue  of SALON TODAY and posted before the issue goes to press. Good luck!
