18 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | DECEMBER 2018 Editor's Notebook I 've said it before, and I'll say it again: Beauty professionals are a passionate group of individuals. From the work you do behind the chair to the photo collections (and Instagram posts!) you take the time to create, you pour your hearts into everything that you do. You are likewise devoted to the products that you use—so much so that thousands of you voted in our annual Readers Choice Awards for your faves in categories ranging from best styling iron to permanent color. Turn to page 70 to discover which products scored for each category, and see if your picks made the cut. As we close 2018 with the year's best products, we also look toward the future: On page 94, our editors predict which emerging products will make it big in 2019 (for instance, when I heard that Eufora was releasing an aromatherapy line late this year, I was all in). Another forward-thinking forecast this month is The Colorist 's "30 Under 30" feature on page 56. Here, we had the opportunity to scroll through your Instagram feeds and discover which young colorists are the ones to watch in the coming year and, believe me: The future of our industry looks bright. In fact, we couldn't fi t all of their amazing insights into the magazine, so we are publishing their full interviews on our website. Simply log on to to view this talented group and take inspiration from their thrilling work. P.S.: Our staff is constantly scrolling through Instagram for content, so make a resolution to tag @beautylaunchpad and #beautylaunchpad so we can see your images and potentially feature them in our print and digital platforms. In our December issue we honor the industry's best young colorists as well as top-performing professional beauty products. Simply the Best Ten voters scored an assortment of the Readers Choice-winning products featured in our pages! Congrats to Sarah Allen, Erika Andreis, Tracy Bellucci, Jordon Canny, Alissa Cimmino, William Alex Lawx, Andrea Pincoski, Madison Remeneski, Carey Sanchez, and Jessica Scott Santo.
