In part 2 of her DC story, Modern Salon’s Ann Moratto talks about her experience at PBA’s 2012 Welcome to Our World on Capitol Hill, celebrating the power of beauty as professionals come together for the future of the industry. Here’s a glimpse of her story:

“I was on Capitol Hill for an event that demonstrates the true beauty of our industry called Welcome to Our Word (WTOW). Established by the Professional Beauty Federation, an organization comprised of professional salon industry companies and associations including AACS, ISBN, ISPA, JCPenney Salons, OPI, PBA, and Sexy Hair, WTOW involves hundreds of salon pros who volunteer their skills and services to this event, offering manicures, haircuts, makeup applications and chair massages to Capitol Hill staffers.”
