The Organic Market Report UK for 2016 was just released on Feb 23, 2016. The Organic Beauty Market increased by 21.6% in the UK! The story in GCI Magazine here. In the US the global demand for organic personal care products was over $7.6 billion in 2012, and is expected to reach $13.2 billion by 2018. More info here and here. Should Organic Beauty be a part of your business and branding? It is definitely a trend on the rise, and you would be missing out on a growing revenue trend. This topic would make the perfect social media talking point to your clients to both educate and see how they respond to the idea and products available.

Want to know what our students have been up to
We always recommend that our students get connected with their potential clients through social media and blogging before they graduate so they can form a relationship with their future customers. There is an opportunity to build clientele before they graduate, and take that clientele base with them as they move into the field. If you are a client of Phagans School of Hair Design we encourage you to ask your student if they are participating in social media or have a blog. If you are a student, we have compiled some wonderful examples of beauty blogs to inspire you. Build a fan base, start blogging and posting to social media!

It’s February and love is in the air! I see red hearts and flowers everywhere I go. At Phagans we are celebrating the “love” month by reminding ourselves to be kind and loving to everyone we see.
My family and friends are always at the top of my list. And of course our wonderful, amazing students! I run into our students everywhere I go. I love seeing our alumni! This week I saw Lindsay and Angela, who is developing her own fashion show! I am so proud of all of them. And of course, our current students are so impressive! A special shout out goes to Matthew Ames from our Northeast Campus and all the other great students …

If you pay attention to the Phagans Facebook page, you will see one person, more than any other, end up in many of the photos. You can’t miss Miss Betty striking a pose with her hand on her hip and a leg pushed in front of her. But she’s more than a pretty face and perpetual photo-bomber. Let’s get to know her:
