Over the course of the last few weeks, it's been inspiring to see how the beauty industry is coming together to support each other amid the coronavirus pandemic. Beauty brands are doing things like donating proceeds from sales to charity groups, giving away products to medical staff working on the frontlines, and even dedicating factory space to help manufacture high-demand items like hand sanitizer.
It's no secret that the service industry, among others, has been affected greatly by the virus, with all nonessential businesses closing doors for the foreseeable future. Hair salons, nail salons, spas, and other brick-and-mortar beauty companies are unable to operate, forcing many employees temporarily out of work. This has left many customers wondering how they can support their favourite hairstylists, salons, and beauticians.
Luckily, there are ways to help. If you're a salon regular, purchasing a gift card online or leaving a positive Yelp review can go miles in keeping your go-to spot in business. You can also put your money behind beauty brands supporting hairstylists during this trying time. Read on to learn which companies are doing their part in helping the hair industry.
