Support Your Beauty Businesses on Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is a huge day for small businesses in your neighborhood! Especially in 2020! Especially beauty and wellness businesses that specialize in makeup, lashes, waxing, nail, hair, yoga, and massage, However, the one segment of the beauty industry that has been heavily impacted is the skincare segment. Many states and local governments have not allowed skincare businesses to operate for months. Then when they were able to operate, they were required to have clients keep their masks on, which made it challenging to provide services.

#3 Buy Products
All of the beauty businesses sell products! These are some of the highest quality products available. Buy products from these businesses this year, especially on Small Business Saturday! Remember that the purchase of products from these small businesses over Target, Walmart, Sephora or Amazon mean that you’re feeding someone’s children, your keeping a roof over another human being’s head vs adding to the balance sheet of a multi-national corporation. We’re not here to bash big business – but these smaller businesses are fighting for survival and product sales are the energy they need to keep fighting!
