Cosmoprof Las Vegas is not your typical beauty show. It gives distributors the opportunity to find new brands to take to the salons. Some of the products may not be available yet but, keep an eye out, because they may be popping up with your distributors next
Clipless curling irons are putting excitement back into texture. Coming in all different sizes and shapes, it allows stylists to create everything from loose, beachy waves to tight pin curls. There are several manufacturers that have launched the rods, including Hot Tools and Enzo Milano. Make sure a glove is included–it’s a must-have for keeping fingers from getting fried.
Nails (Nails, Nails, Nails!)
I’ve never seen so many products for nails on a showfloor! The options for creating really cool-looking fingers and toes are abundant. UV-cured and LED-cured soak-off gels and hybrids are offering much larger selections of colour and options. Wraps and tips and other nail special effects make it easy to add multiple colours, textures and designs for any nail artist. Make sure you’re ready to get creative for your clients.
The showfloor in Vegas has proven that the industry still hasn’t lost its love for oils, especially the original argan oil. Whether it’s being included as an ingredient in new lines that are launching or as new products for established lines, healthy hair is in and demand for argan oil is still high.
As in extensions, of course! First modeled on a couple of celebs early this year, including Steven Tyler on American Idol, feathers are in demand. Salons are requesting them and distributors were looking for them. And everyone was wearing them. Bling for hair is hot, and so is the added revenue in your pocket.
