Being from the Cosmetology/Salon Owner side of the industry, offering professional hair care lines in the salon was the norm.  Retailing is a large part of our income.  But, when it comes to cosmetic lines, there aren’t many that have the quality desired to be resold in a salon, and many cosmetic lines do not want pros to resell their products because they want to keep the profit.

As I mentioned earlier in my post, the beauty industry has been evolving and right now is having one of the biggest shifts that it has ever seen If pros position themselves right and evolve there are a lot of things that can be done to keep the revenue using high quality EXCLUSIVE professional products.
