FAQ’s for YOU!

A) YES, actually it's "editable" to change your ticket into someone else's name + info!  Sorry, but NO tickets of any kind are refundable & tickets cannot be carried over to a future show year. 


You may sell or gift your ticket to another licensed beauty pro by following the directions below to "edit" your info into the buyers name/info so they'll be on the Eventbrite guest list which we utilize to Check-in attendees at the show.


Editing changes can only be made by the ORIGINAL ticket buyer & ALL CHANGES MUST BE MADE ON A LAPTOP OR PC.

Sorry, but the Eventbrite system doesn't support mobile devices nor tablets.

If you bought a ticket from someone else, you'll need to have the original purchaser edit the ticket info.


Names not on the guest list cannot be admitted to the show regardless of ticket purchase. Follow these instruction precisely to avoid having problems.

Sorry, but due to time limitations, we cannot make ticket name/info changes NOR look up tickets in the Eventbrite system for you.

First: the seller takes payment from the ticket buyer via Venmo, Cash App, Paypal, Square, etc.


Second: Eventbrite has 4 simple step instructions to edit your ticket into another licensed beauty pro's info so they can use the ticket. YOU will need to get the following info from the buyer in advance before you begin the online ticket editing process: 

  1. buyers name
  2. buyers cell number
  3. buyers email address
  4. buyers their pro beauty license & state

CLICK HERE for the 4 step change instructions


Third: change YOUR email on the ticket to the BUYERS email & then click "resend ticket" (or something like that) to the buyer's new email address.


Fourth (last step): Confirm with the buyer that they DID receive the emailed ticket in their own name & their own info.  Once they confirm all info is correct on the ticket, then the deal is concluded & the buyers name is automatically on the Eventbrite ticket list.


~ To prohibit the fraudulent reselling of 1 ticket multiple times: the name on the ticket MUST match the name on the pro beauty license &/or photo ID shown during the Check-in process. THIS IS FOR YOUR PROTECTION. 


~ Marriage/divorce name changes occur & will be taken into consideration if your photo ID matches your first name & your face. Sorry but licenses held in escrow are not up-to-date & cannot be admitted.


~ If ordering more than 1 ticket:
each ticket MUST be listed in each tech's own name with their own corresponding pro beauty license number & state. Duplicate ticket names or license numbers are subject to being canceled without notice.


~ Paper beauty licenses of any size or a photo of your license on your phone are acceptable as long as they are easily readable.
