"Sold Only in Professional Salons." Those are fighting words throughout the beauty industry. They proclaim manufacturers’ and beauty salons’ desires to limit sales of many high-end professional-beauty products to salons. But large drugstore chains and discount retailers often sell products that have packages marked for sale in salons only. And they sell those products in competition with beauty salons despite the manufacturers’ and salons’ wishes.
