For the final time this year, Bronner Bros. transformed Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center into a vibrant playground for hair enthusiasts, makeup artists, and beauty supply vendors for their bi-annual International Beauty Show. As the world’s largest beauty show, Bronner Bros. has brought people from every corner of the globe for the last 71 years to celebrate and share all things beauty. Attendees indulged in 3 days of beauty classes, live hair demonstrations and over 300 vendors showcasing unique and industry-dated supplies and tips.
As a long-standing tradition, Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show has crafted both an educational and entertainment element, creating a fulfilling experience for show-goers. This year, industry experts such as Terrence Davidson, Deshawn Bullard, and Mimi Johnson hosted informative panels on makeup, hair loss, and business development.
Saturday evening entertainment kicked off with a comedy show, where comedian JJ Williamson opened for social media sensation Jess Hilarious, who filled the room with laughs before August Alsina hit the stage to serenade the crowd.
In addition to an array of celebrity appearances, the weekend was filled with exciting hair and barber competitions yielding some of the best and brightest stylists the industry has to offer.
This year was a hit, but we look forward to a bigger and better show as Bronner Bros. prepare to leave Atlanta for the first time ever to hit New Orleans March of 2019.

Celebrity photographer and disabled Vietnam veteran Jerome Dorn embodies the very definition of resilience. Born in Philadelphia, the fifth of seven children, Dorn stayed focused throughout his youth, eventually obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice. Dorn has worked with the Philadelphia Police Department, Department of Justice, World Wide Detective Agency, and several other high profile security groups. Throughout his successful career, Dorn wrestled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an aftereffect of his military service. Battling the pain and debilitating effect of PTSD, Dorn found comfort behind the camera. Photography proved to be not only therapeutic, but life changing as well. Dorn picked up his first camera in 1970 while serving in Vietnam and knew instantly that behind the lens was where he belonged. His shooting style and photographs were special, generating a buzz in the industry. In 1985, he began his career in photojournalism, working in a variety of genres. Dorn’s credentials include fashion, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, and celebrity/red carpet coverage. Working with MSNBC, Jet Magazine, and major publications in Philadelphia and around the country, Dorn has had the honor of capturing the images of hundreds of notable celebrities and politicians including President Barack Obama, George Bush Jr, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Will Smith, and Tyler Perry. Photography has sent Dorn around the globe, inspiring his passion for civil activism. In 1995, Dorn assembled and led a group of forty-two men to the Million Man March. Together, they spent five days walking from Philadelphia to Washington DC. In his travels, Dorn observed a common theme amongst the youth of the world. Many of the children he encountered seemed lost. Understanding that opportunities for at-risk youth are minimal, Dorn was inspired to make a difference. Established by Dorn in 2011, InDaHouseMedia was built on the idea that there is room in the house for everyone. With InDaHouseMedia, Dorn’s mission is to provide the future generation with positive direction through sports, music, and photography.
