It’s a sure way to increase chances for referrals when you have happy clients. Besides this, selling retail can significantly increase your profits. Selling hair care products will help you increase your revenue without adding high, additional expenses for your salon. Read on and learn which products will be most beneficial for you!


Finding the right products


The products you sell have to match the message and feel of your salon. If you’re an organic salon, sell fair produced, vegan products with natural ingredients like Aveda or Kevin Murphy. As a salon that offers luxury services, you should go for matching, high end brands, such as Oribe or Kerastase. If you’re a low cost salon, go for cheaper, yet professional and good brands and products like Redken or Wella. Always provide products that are targeted to your group of clients, and that best represent your salon!


Changing with the seasons


Every season can create an effect on your clients’ hair differently from person to person. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to switch up your product range once the climate changes. Most of the brands even offer customized products for the different seasons that meet specific hair needs . Make sure to always know about special editions and provide your clients the matching products that work well throughout the seasons!
