Today marks the end of one more magical year of America's Beauty Show in Chicago. Thousands of hair professionals hailing from around the Midwest and as far away as Europe came to catch the latest trends in beauty and strut their own hairdos. And this year there was no shortage of theatrics and spectac-tricks, so we've taken the pleasure of bringing to you today, a roundup of the best of the best—or at least an entertaining sampling.
