Sales of beauty products in Britain have outstripped France and now exceed £4 billion. And the British love of luxury and everyday beauty and personal care products shows no signs of receding. Meanwhile, the industry is quick to innovate, including forthcoming beauty and personal care product ranges covering “active beauty” tied into the huge health and well-being market, temperature and water-activated products and even personalised beauty regimes linked to DNA analysis.
Having the backing of a franchiser in the beauty industry can be vital, as you are guaranteed well-known and trusted products, and you can tap into a wealth of business and product support, plus training and marketing services. Thanks to the power of the internet, opening your own salon is no longer the only way to build a beauty business either. In fact, a network of “work from home” entrepreneurs has risen up and is taking the beauty industry by storm. They supply a growing range of products often promoted via social media and video blogs. There is also a thriving marketplace for mobile beauticians, specialists or general beauty technicians who can deliver products and services to customers in their own home, to prepare them for celebrations and special occasions. This includes Business in a Box, the franchise deal from A Brush with Beauty ABWB. If you have a driving licence and the right training, you could also become a BOM Mobile Beauty Therapist. Or how about running a Fingernails2Go franchise, which is a high-tech automatic kiosk that prints nail art. There are also Nail Kiosk franchises on offer. Vegan and cruelty-free company PHB supports ethical beauty franchise businesses, while BC Beauty trains people in delivering its beauty treatment range as a franchisee.
One of the most prolific and long-standing franchisers is Colour Me Beautiful, which is also looking for personal stylists. To be sure your beauty business franchise not only looks right but lasts, contact us to be matched with a parent company that can colour you successful.
