One of the most frequently asked questions from Salon Service Group’s Facebook page is “What’s the price on this?” You might be thinking, “That’s weird. Why don’t they put prices on things?” It comes down to one reason: we want to protect your business! Here’s what we’re doing to keep the beauty industry in the hands of the pros.
You Don’t Need Pricing Problems
Who hasn’t watched a beauty vlogger for some makeup or hair inspo? We love them! But between vloggers and beauty stores, upscale beauty is more accessible and your clients are more knowledgeable about beauty than ever before! You’ve probably even had a client say “I can do that at home” once or twice about your services.
And now it’s easier to price compare. That’s why protecting your cost is important to us. If it could be seen by someone other than stylists, we don’t include pricing. So while you might see our weekly sale on Facebook, you won’t see the price there. We don’t want anything making it more competitive for you.
That’s also why we verify your cosmetology license before you can shop online. We want to make sure that we are partnering with salon professionals!
Diversion Sucks…For All of Us
Unfortunately, diversion is a big problem for the beauty industry. And it hurts everyone.
- Your clients end up with expired or damaged product
- The brand’s reputation suffers
- It’s hard to retail product yourself
Our anti-diversion policies ensure that we’re doing our part to stop this practice that hurts everyone in the beauty industry. They protect your clients and protect your business.
Privately Owned, And Staying That Way
Not only do we partner with amazing stylists, we also partner with amazing brands. We carry privately-owned brands because we believe in keeping the salon industry in the hands of professionals. The company that sells hair color to professionals should not also sell hair color in a box to your clients. It undermines your services and talent. (Plus, we all know exactly how well box dyes work out!)
Your business is the most important thing to us. And we know how competitive it is for you. These are just three ways that we’re working to be a good partner to your business!
