Booth renters are the fastest-growing segment in the salon world. So what are you—salon-industry manufacturers/marketers, distributors, chain salons, beauty store owners and managers, etc.—doing about it?

Those are my two major takeaways from a just-released, first-of-its kind, in-depth study by Professional Consultants & Resources.

Fascinating data from this 2011 Booth Rental Salon Market Study: Booth rentals already make up 35% of all U.S. salons, and in three years nearly 50% of all U.S. salons will offer some form of the booth-rental model.

The Professional Beauty Association is starting a new research initiative designed specifically for beauty-industry distributors, and is now seeking qualified participants.

"The final report will contain data that can’t be found anywhere else, and the results will be free for participants," says Elizabeth Fantetti, the PBA's membership director. "We are confident that the information will be of great value to those who work in the distribution arena."

You have to absolutely love what the Professional Beauty Association is doing with its first-ever Distributor Executive Conference in the Seattle area on April 3-4.

If you haven’t heard yet, this is a conference for professional-beauty independent distributors. No loud music, no suppliers, no manufacturers reps, no beauty-service professionals, no selling. It’s designed for indie distributors to talk among themselves in a business environment. What a fabulous idea!
