As salons closed across the country, consumers took matters into their own hands – cutting, coloring, treating, and styling their neglected locks like the pros and driving double-digit sales surges across several hair care categories. Hair color and masques paced the growth, along with trimmers and clippers, personalized formulas, and products for textured hair.

Join us on March 31st  for a deep dive into the hair category with trend forecasting agency, Kline, followed by a panel discussion with established and emerging brands leading these market increases during quarantine and beyond.
