118 August 2016 | News Image courtesy of the International SalonSpa Business Network Image courtesy of Affemann Imports ISBN HONORS SPORT CLIPS HAIRCUTS' LOGAN WITH 2016 LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD The International SalonSpa Business Network honored Gordon Logan, founder/CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts and ISBN past president (2008- 2012), with its 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award during ISBN's 2016 Conference at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, in May. The award is presented to the ISBN member who has provided leadership to the association, for multi-unit salon and spa companies, and to the professional-beauty industry as a whole. Logan has volunteered his time and talents to ISBN for more than two decades, serving in a leadership role and currently chairing ISBN's government relations committee. In those roles, Logan has led ISBN through major industry transitions and cultivated deep-working relationships with key players in the professional-beauty industry, as well as with outstanding local and regional operators. Together, they are creating a united front to address the challenges faced by the industry: licensing deregulation, gainful employment criteria for schools, and inconsistent stan- dards that make it difficult for some stylists to move from state to state, to name a few. He has pushed the professional-beauty industry to become more involved in the political process and to proactively present solutions to those challenges that make sense for the industry and for the public. As the founder and CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts, Logan was far ahead of the curve— pioneering a brilliant concept in which men and boys can enjoy their grooming experiences. That has built to the major resurgence in barbering and men's grooming that the industry— and men—enjoy today. "There is no greater honor than to receive ISBN's Lifetime Achievement Award from my friends and associates," says Logan. "To be in the same company as Chuck Penzone, Henry Pelusi and Sy Finkelstein is humbling, to say the least. I am honored to have served on the ISBN board for 12 years and as president for four. This is the icing on the cake! I plan to con- tinue to work for and with ISBN to help us meet the challenges we face, and I am confident that we will be successful. The future of our professional salon industry depends on it!" Logan adds, "I have been active in ISBN since the early 1990s when it was known as the International Chain Salon Association … and many still think of us that way! I cherish the friendships that I have been fortunate enough to develop over the years, and the lessons learned from the accomplished members who are so willing to share have been a boost to my career and my ability to build Sport Clips into the dominant system it is today with over 1,500 locations in all 50 states and five provinces in Canada." Logan continues, "The future has never been brighter for ISBN. Our industry needs our leadership to deal with the many challenges we are facing today at all levels. No other orga- nization represents salons and spas that employ as many stylists as ISBN members—easily over 200,000! Cosmetology schools are under attack on a number of fronts, and they need our support to survive and thrive. It is in our mutual best interests to work together to ensure our industry is regulated in a thoughtful manner that provides opportunities for so many young people, while protecting the health and safety of the public. There are many battles to be fought, and I promise that ISBN will be in the forefront, leading the way." Rhoda Olsen, ISBN's president and CEO of Great Clips, says, "Gordon has an unwavering commitment to the professional-beauty industry and has worked tirelessly on behalf of all of us. Even though we are competitors in the marketplace, he helped me to understand the common issues we face and how important it is that we work together. And as we have worked together, we have become great friends and continually learn from one another." MEMBERS INVITED TO JOIN NEW SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA BEAUTY ASSOCIATION The Bay Area Beauty Association—a new organization started by multiple industry veterans and executives who were unable to constantly travel to Los Angeles or New York for industry events and community support—has successfully launched the association and its membership platform. Also, BABA held its second event in May and webinars in June and July—and has other local events planned for Sept. 15 and Dec. 8. "We are really humbled and appreciative of the outpour of support from the local beauty community, other organizations and the trade," says Sinead Norenius, BABA board member. "We are clearly fulfilling a need in this area, and it is our goal to develop and strengthen the beauty-industry community, plus provide valuable education and workshops unlike no other. San Francisco and the Silicon Valley lead the tech industry, and we have so much at our disposal in our backyard. We need to leverage that and help bring more disruptive innovation to our members— especially in ecommerce and the digital space—and BABA will be that resource among other things."
