The Salon & Spa Professionals of NYS is a statewide community of industry professionals connected by a common passion for learning, growing and raising the professional bar of the entire industry. 

Our members include cosmetologists, barbers, estheticians, make-up artists, nail technicians, massage therapists, product manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, educators and students. As a member of the association, you will have access to continuing education, special industry events, business tools and products as well as detailed NYS rules, laws & licensing requirements. You will also be invited to take advantage of professional networking, leadership & volunteer opportunities and have access to preferred industry insurance and banking/financial services. And through legislative advocacy efforts, our members will have a strong voice in Albany and in our communities throughout the New York State.

The Salon & Spa Professionals of NYS was formed in December 2017 by a small group of industry veterans and association management professionals who made a commitment to "Advocate - Educate - Elevate" the industry. Our mission is to protect and support the success of members daily. Please help us achieve our mission by JOINING today!  


 “It is very comforting as a business owner knowing there is an organization advocating to protect our professional license, protect our businesses against unfair competition from barbershops and salons that are not licensed to practice, as well as providing one place to find all of the health and safety standards that the state requires of our chosen specialty within beauty industry.”
