The Breakdown of the Beauty Business During Coronavirus
Alot of us are feeling the effects of Coronavirus, but none as bad as the restaurant and Beauty businesses. Many of us are losing our jobs, and not sure if they will be there, when, and if, the Stores and Restaurants open again. Some of us fear our jobs will NEVER BE THE SAME, even after we get through this crisis.
In an industry where we work so closely with the public, and in many cases, touch them, these fears ARE REAL!..I believe that we will see a different Beauty Industry when it's over. We will see.
Salon owners, Tanning Businesses, Threading Salons, Massage Therapists, etc.. all over are having to shut down, and a lot of them FOR GOOD! We have been there for years, helping woman feel beautiful, and now left to our own "SURVIVAL". I do understand why, don't get me wrong, but I'd like to ask for their support in their time of need.
The fear of germs has always been a factor in our business. We take such pride in our sanitation, and most of us are more fearful and careful than you are. But, I'm afraid that because of this Coronavirus, that will change the Beauty Industry forever!
They are struggling right now! Most of us are Moms, with families that count on their income. Most of the Media and News is about the restaurant business, and the Beauty Industry is suffering too!
There are a few ways to help...
If there are GIFT CERTIFICATES you can purchase now, for a SERVICE LATER, please do!
If they have a website that SELLS PRODUCTS, but some. Reach out VIA Social Media, ask them about these, and how you can support them. Each of them might have ideas too.
I am seeing, even in my small town USA, that some are permanently closing, and it breaks my heart!
But it's not just the Beauty Businesses, is's a lot of SMALL BUSINESSES!
The "Mom and Pop" shops that started in America and all over the world, to support their families, serve the community, and Pursue their dreams and passions. We call it the "American Dream". Many people are losing their family businesses that have been around for generations! So sad. The fault was none of their own.
Please support these small business in your community! The large Corporations have been the Major reason small businesses are dying. The people shopping from them, like myself included are contributing to the problem. We all are helping them, if we order from them instead of supporting the small businesses in our communities.
This is only my opinion, but I'm not the only one with that opinion. In times like these the richer get richer, and the poorer get poorer. It's sad, but true!
Small businesses provide better customer service by far. You are helping keep the money in your community, and your State. That supports the local economy. Bringing more money into your community brings more State dollars, through tourists, tax breaks, etc. Plus, you are helping a family provide for their family, and that feels good.
Cheap Goods From China, or Quality Made
Most of you have to know, that the majority of products bought from Amazon and Walmart come from China. Personally, I think we are crazy buying from a third world country, one that DOESN'T LIKE US??...Bad idea.
I have bought from China before, the quality is bad. Shipping takes forever. and there was a point that I decided to STOP SUPPORTING those countries that pay people, mainly women less than $1.00 a day, and most of them are forced to...Think about that. I did, and it changed how I shopped.
There are many American, or good companies throughout the internet that strives to provide the best quality products for a great price! I choose now, to follow them, buy from them, and support them.
THIS IS MY NEW MISSION!
Most people know of Lancome, it's from France right?...Yes...but ..They are a Loreal Company, and most of their products sold here in America, are MADE HERE IN AMERICA! Other American companies are Estee Lauder, Mary Kay, Maybelline, Obsessive Compulsive, Jane Iredale, RMS Beauty, Beauty Blender, SkinCeuticals, Stila Cosmetics, Elizabeth Arden, Dermalogica Philosophy,
L.A. Girl, Urban Decay, Chanel, Yes Chanel, Mac, Bobbi Brown, NYX, are among the best known MADE IN AMERICA COSMETICS.
Ladies, know your Cosmetics, know your Companies you buy from, do some research, it's there. I learned the hard way, by ordering from what I thought was a Canadian company was really a front Company out of China!
