    The Professional Beauty Association Names Cindy Feldman 
    of Progressions salon spa store as Treasurer of Board of Directors


    NORTH BETHESDA, MD (September 23, 2020) -- Progressions salon spa store in North Bethesda, Maryland, is pleased to announce that founder and owner Cindy Feldman has been named Treasurer of the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) Board of Directors. Ms. Feldman continues to serve her three-year term on the Board, and has also just completed her third year on the PBA Board Advisory Council (Salon/Spa). 

    The PBA is a community-led, non-profit organization with over 100,000 members serving the beauty industry by providing support, leadership and guidance. The PBA represents licensed professionals, salons, manufacturers, distributors, schools and students. The PBA's Board of Directors oversees budgeting, endorsement of legislation, strategic planning and industry-wide issues. 

    Cindy Feldman is the founder, owner and business director of Progressions salon spa store, a full-service salon in North Bethesda, Maryland. As an industry leader in salon management, Ms. Feldman has grown Progressions salon spa store to a 9,000-square-foot retail space, and with a team of award-winning stylists, colorists, manicurists, estheticians and guest service providers. She oversees all business aspects of the fast-paced, multi-million-dollar salon, including property management, accounting, communications, web development, staff leadership and trade connections. Progressions has been honored with numerous awards from Salon Today 200, Modern Salon, The Washington Post, DC Magazine, Allure Magazine, Bethesda Magazine, Montgomery Magazine and Rockville Chamber of Commerce. 

    “I am honored to have the privilege of serving as the newly-appointed Treasurer of the Professional Beauty Association,” notes Cindy Feldman. “I look forward to continuing to work with this great organization in my new role, along with sharing ideas and perspectives to advance and promote the beauty industry.” 

    In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Feldman has implemented the highest level of safety precautions at Progressions salon spa store to keep clients and team members safe. With a distance of six feet between stations, touchless faucets are now used along with touchless soap and paper towel dispensers. Gloves, masks and capes are individually packaged for each guest upon arrival, and all Progressions team members wear masks. The salon layout has been transformed to safely accommodate an overflow of guests. With a new system in place, guests remain in their cars until their stylist is ready for them. They receive a text or a guest service team member will come outside to escort them into the salon. Hair brushes, combs, clips and capes are thoroughly disinfected after use. Product shelves holding products used during a service are carefully wiped down between guests. After each guest’s service, all used items are safely bagged and placed into a hands-free, lidded container for disposal. Guest service protocols have been updated as well, and the salon is now cashless with appointments by email rather than with business cards.
