How Salons Can Win A Prize Package To “Future-Proof” Their Business

Salon owners: Looking for solutions to prepare your business for massive industry shifts? One salon owner will win a transformative package to help future-proof their salon with the help of innovative tech and beauty companies Vish,, Sustain Beauty Co, Canvas ME, Qnity, and Green Circle Salons. Worth nearly $26,000, this prize package has the potential to completely change the trajectory of one lucky business and demonstrate the possibilities of this collaboration to the rest of the industry. Interested salons can apply from Dec. 15, 2021 to Jan. 15, 2022 by visiting


The six companies are embarking on this “Great Collaboration”—the first of its kind—to amplify their message that owners are not alone. These rapidly expanding companies, which offer very real yet different ways to be more financially and environmentally sustainable, are pooling their resources to offer leadership that will help the industry ensure they are well-placed for the demands of future clients and recruits.


“The beauty industry needs to prepare for rapid change that is coming. Disruptor brands and services are already here that could seriously impact salon businesses. It is unrealistic and unfair to leave the burden of change solely on the service providers,” says Joshua Howard, CEO of Vish Color Management. “At Vish, we believe suppliers and manufacturers need to shine a light on how to strengthen salon businesses and so are delighted to team up with other like-minded innovators to possible routes to greater security”.


“Being sustainable isn’t just about cutting back on energy or chemicals; it’s also about ensuring your business has a long and prosperous future ahead. This collaboration will allow one lucky salon winner to improve chair occupancy, gain a competitive edge in recruiting talent, capture missed revenue opportunities, reduce waste, level up their business and financial acumen, cut back on chemical use and so much more!” says Valorie Tate, co-founder of Sustain Beauty Co.


“All of these are first steps to future-proofing the industry and together they make a huge impact,” adds Erin Kuhn, President of Qnity. “What salons stand to gain from this package is almost unimaginable”.
