Salon Trends 2018: 11 industry experts on what to expect

A huge part of being successful in business is staying ahead of the curve. That’s why we’re curious about what industry professionals are predicting for future salon trends.

Hair and beauty are massive industries, full of innovators and forward-thinkers constantly pushing the envelope.

It can be hard to pick out the signal for the noise, though. And if you’re focused on running the day-to-day of your salon, you’re probably not spending all your spare hours looking into the feasibility of new technology, right?

That’s why we did it for you.

We asked 11 experts to shed the light on what salon trends business owners can’t ignore in 2018!

They came back with a wide range, from smartphones and social media apps, to nanotechnology and mindfulness.

We’ve gained a wealth of industry insight from these salon pros, and we can’t wait to share it with you all. Contributors include celebrity stylists, beauty professionals, and globe-trotting salon educators. Our ebook also features predictions on salon trends from salon coaches who are constantly on the lookout for the best approaches for business success.

One of our contributors is Paul Frasca. Paul is the director of Sustainable Salons Australia, and is on the Australian Hairdressing Council — so he certainly knows his stuff.

Paul gives us business owners a few suggestions on ways we can give back to the environment, and save money while doing so! He reminds us that environmentalism is not just about doing the right thing. It’s also a smart marketing ploy that clients will pay attention to going forward.

After all, what is the future of hair and beauty if there are no resources. Sustainability is the way of the future. In fact, many people believe it is the only way forward.
