Partnering opportunity

A UK company requires distributors for innovative hair straightening treatment, shampoos, conditioners and styling products.

Summary

A UK company wishes to increase their distributor network across Europe and beyond for innovative hair straightening treatment, shampoos, conditioners and styling products, in particular to distributors already supplying professional hair products to salons and existing small to medium sized salon chains.

Partner expertise sought

The distributors should be mainly targeting small and medium sized hair salon chains, but relatively large salon chains will also be considered. They should be prepared to act as an advocate and educator of the product range to pro-actively promote it.

Description

This UK company has been established since 2009 producing innovative hair repair and straightening treatments, shampoos, conditioners and styling products. The shampoos are paraben free and all packaging is recyclable. Their product range is aimed at anyone who wants to repair or grow their hair and or anyone who does not like or cannot manage curl/wave/frizz. Their leading “signature” product is an award winning salon treatment which repairs and straightens hair for up to four months. The directors have a wealth of experience in this sector and continue to work on developing new treatments and products. Currently they distribute throughout the UK and export to a number of countries outside of Europe. They wish to increase their distribution network to European and global markets, particularly Germany, Italy Spain, France, Scandinavia and Russia although they are willing to consider other countries. The distributors should have existing contacts within this sector, selling to existing medium-sized salon chains that they can actively promote this product range to. Relatively large salon chains would also be considered.

Advantages and innovations

Innovative protein technology is used in the in -salon straightening treatment. The treatment changes the behaviour of the hairs structure, repairs, strengthens and straightens. The advantage of this protein technology is that the results are transformational and last for up to four months, outperforming other straightening treatments offered by competitor products. The innovative range of shampoos, conditioners, styling products and “quick fix” treatments all support healthy frizz-free hair for longer and can be used to maintain the salon treatment or can be used as a standalone product as part of regular hair care. This provides an opportunity for salons to offer more choice and flexibility to their clients and increase sales. The products unique formulas result from long term research and development between the company and their partners in Brazil, California and the UK, where the product and treatments are also sourced and manufactured. Hair straightening is in high demand in these countries and is where these types of products have proven their results.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
