There comes a time in every stylist’s career where his/her client cheats and purchases product outside of the salon. The client may justify these transactions for a variety of reasons – they don’t have time to wait on product to be restocked, they don’t want to make a special trip to the salon just for hairspray, or they just read about something new they would like to try and their stylist doesn’t carry it. So, convenience wins and they shop on Amazon or through another unauthorized retailer, ultimately contributing to two words that have a created a world of confusion in the beauty industry: Product diversion.
Transformation Salon, Lakeway’s Paul Mitchell Focus Salon is now donating 25 percent of all commissions it receives from its ecommerce hair and beauty site (www.loxabeauty.com) to local charities through its “Live Beautifully and Give Back” program.
“Our professional stylist team is dedicated to providing the best service to our loyal customers, plus giving back to our community,” said Grace Watson, founder and creative director of Transformation Salon. “We are especially excited about ‘Live Beautifully and Give Back’ and already have philanthropic events scheduled to help abandoned and homeless animals find homes. We couldn’t do this without the help of Loxa Beauty, our trusted online retailer.”
There comes a time in every woman’s life when we cheat on our stylist and purchase salon professional product outside of the salon. The reasons for cheating are understandable though, right? – Your stylist is waiting on new stock, you really don’t want to make a special trip to the salon just for hairspray or you just read about something new that you’d like try, but your salon doesn’t carry it.

John Paul DeJoria has one of those fabled entrepreneurial stories that sound outlandish: he and his co-founder Paul Mitchell started a hair care business with just $700 in seed money while DeJoria was going through a divorce and living out of his car.
That upstart hair care business, John Paul Mitchell Systems, based in Los Angeles, is now a billion-dollar brand, as is DeJoria's premium tequila company, Patron Spirits. When DeJoria visited New York recently, I met him for breakfast to talk about his new hair product line, MarulaOil, and how it came to market. He also shared news about developing a new treatment for herpes and cold sores, offered some tips for fellow entrepreneurs and explained how he manages to run a host of businesses, including beauty, diamonds, pet care, and spirits, without using computer or email.
PROUD TO BE A PART OF PAUL MITCHELL’S REFOREST’ACTION
Plant a tree and build a forest with Tea Tree. We proudly support REFOREST'ACTION, an environmental organization that plants trees worldwide, in the areas where they’re needed most.
Tea Tree’s Green Takeover has made a commitment to:
- Plant 500,000 trees by the end of 2016
- Sequester over 85,000 tons of CO2 during the trees’ lifetime
- Support rainforest conservation and reforestation projects in Peru and Guatemala
- Benefit local communities through better health and nutrition, as well as additional revenue
- Protect soil from depletion and erosion caused by deforestation
John Paul Pet uses Tea Tree in John Paul Pet Tea Tree Shampoo and John Paul Pet Tea Tree Conditioning Spray.
Transformation Salon co-owner Grace Watson said her business is more than just a place to coif hair. It is often filled with rescue dogs visiting for socialization, nonprofit organization flyers placed near the cash register and bake sales to raise money for charity.
The salon opened in 2002 and has always donated a portion of proceeds to charity, Grace said. However, she said that in the past four years, one specific charity has become very important to her.
Lizzie’s Hospice House rescues elderly and terminally ill dogs from shelters where they would otherwise be euthanized. Founder Karen Cole met Grace nearly five years ago during a dog rescue event.
