The beauty supply industry is desperately looking for qualified individuals to work and operate the stores. Unlike the general merchandise stores, the beauty supply is a specialty retailer. One must understand the functions of each product and be able to guide consumers with proper information. Especially the products, that alter the texture and color of one's natural hair, contain harmful ingredients if they are used improperly. For better consumer safety, the CosmoBiz had published a comprehensive textbook for the Retail Beauty Consultants. Along with the textbook, we also prepared a complete instructor's manual with minute-by-minute daily lesson plans and training aids.
We invite state authorities and community college career development program directors; to review the course and offer this course to future Beauty Consultants, and to help nationwide retail operators to hire the well-prepared labor force.

We Ask for Your Attention
The Retail Beauty Consultant program is newly created to fill this vacuum and prepare individuals to work more effectively at the retail stores.
This career training program will also benefit consumers from harming themselves while handling/using harsh chemical products, such as permanent hair colors, bleaching agents, and perms.
Beauty product retail employees currently earn minimum wages and are considered an untrained workforce, regardless of the complexity in product selection. Even skilled make-up artists, who are working at major department stores and high-end cosmetic stores are getting not far from minimum wage.
A constructive career training program with publicly recognized certificates will provide upward mobility that will bring them out of poverty.
The evidence of demand for Retail Beauty Consultant can be alluded to the high rate of turnover in the retail industry. However the demand for retail associates who are knowledgeable in wigs (hair prosthesis) and chemical hair products is at an all time high. This can be seen in the lack of hiring done by beauty supply stores or hair prosthesis centers due to the difficulty in finding applicants who have prior knowledge about the hair care industry who wish to work in retail.
As there is no precedent for a retail beauty certification or training, the Retail Beauty Consultant course does not have a comparable educational competitor.
This is due to the nonexistence of training programs that teach about wigs, hair extensions, and
chemical products for retail associates.
Cosmetology schools cover hair prosthesis and chemical hair product knowledge but there is no alternative
program for those who wish to become educated in those fields without becoming a cosmetologist.
30 surveys were conducted by phone, and mainly targeted small businesses.
