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!

Come May 6, The Cos Bar will be in all Target stores and target.com as part of the “first flight” of The Shops at Target in the latest—and perhaps greatest—version of a beauty store-within-a-store. How interesting!

On Jan. 13, Target announced this new program, where it’s directly partnering with shop owners of specialty stores and boutiques to co-create affordable, limited-edition collections for its customers. “Flights” are planned for 2012 and beyond in the ongoing program.
