CosmoProf Pairs with Salon HQ to Simplify Salon Storefronts


CosmoProf has made a name in the salon industry for being the leader retailer that carries professional salon products. Now, they have announced they will be partnering with ecommerce platform SalonHQ in order to create a platform that lets stylists create their very own online storefronts.

 When CosmoProf noticed a lack of tools for stylists to take on online entrepreneurial endeavors, they quickly got to work on building a free for stylist ecommerce platform. The service is customizable, allowing those who use it to really feel good about their storefront.

“We understand retail is a significant value driver for stylists,” said Denise Paulonis, President and Chief Executive Officer at Sally Beauty Holdings. “However, the upfront costs of managing inventory can be burdensome and overwhelming to take on. With a free and customizable digital platform backed by CosmoProf’s expansive assortment and fulfillment capabilities, stylists can easily sell products directly to their clients 24/7 while earning commission.”

When used correctly, retail can be a huge element in the career of a hair professional. Often, clients trust product recommendations most from their stylist, given the already trusting nature of their relationships. This new cutting edge platform will allow stylists to also profit off of these recommendations through commissions, while also making it simpler for clients to find and frequently purchase these products whenever they need. 

 “Stylists have already built a reputation with their clients. These new storefronts will amplify those relationships by allowing for connection and personalized product recommendations beyond the salon,” said Mark Spinks, President at CosmoProf.

The platform will certainly alter the way in which stylists can sell their clients recommended products. It will facilitate what used to be a complicated and overwhelming process, allowing it to be simpler and more affordable for beauty professionals all over. Stylists will no longer need to stress over the logistics of managing industry and completing shipments, giving them more time and energy for their craft. 

With CosmoProf, we found a partner focused on delivering best-in-class products and support to its stylist community,” said Mark Porter, Co-Founder of SalonHQ. “This led to a partnership where our platform enables stylists to instantly set up a digital storefront to sell products sold at CosmoProf to their clients online.” 

Since CosmoProf and Salon HQ want to ensure the platform is a success, it is currently only being offered in one territory to allow them to monitor learnings. To learn more about Cosmoprof, check out their website
