The Multicultural Beauty Industry is Growing
The Global Beauty Alliance reports that the multicultural beauty industry is growing at a rate of about 10% annually (source: IRI). This growth is driven by multicultural women, particularly Black and Hispanic consumers, and the unique beauty care requirements for textured hair. In fact, the latest data reveals that dollar sales growth of Textured Hair Care at +$152,935,911 was greater than that of the Total Hair Care Industry at +$137,260,369, despite representing only 11% of the industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of barbers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 19 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all US occupations.
