You know you have the talent to make it in the beauty industry, but figuring out where to begin can feel like a mystery—and cosmetology schools often don’t prepare students for the business end of these jobs . . . which can make or break your career.

Consider this book your crash course on how current and aspiring beauty professionals can profit from their passions to create wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

Entrepreneur and celebrity hairstylist Kiyah Wright knows exactly what it takes to amass wealth in the hair and beauty industry. From the time she was just 14 years old and doing hair in her grandmother's basement for $20 a pop, Kiyah had found her calling. By 17, she had 200 clients and netted over $60K a year. Now, 25 years later, she's at the top of her game with A-List Hollywood clientele, two Emmy Awards, two Hollywood Beauty Awards, a thriving business, and a million-dollar brand. 
In From Beauty to Business, Wright breaks down her seven proven success principles that helped her achieve her goals: 
  • Developing a success mindset
  • Understanding the business of the beauty business
  • Finding your niche
  • Diversifying with multiple streams of income
  • Growing your platform to grow your profits
  • Preparing for the unexpected
  • Planning for your future
    She also lays out crucial success strategies not taught in hair or beauty schools about entrepreneurship, finance, branding, marketing, product distribution, how to harness the power of social media, and how to build wealth. Whether you’re working from your house or a salon, From Beauty to Business will set you up for success with practical tools for thriving in the beauty business on your own terms.
    This first-of-its-kind sourcebook features Kiyah’s favorite success affirmations, industry-themed business templates, worksheets, and the foolproof strategies Kiyah used to attract and retain superstar clients like Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, Ciara, Iman, Taraji P. Henson, and Gabrielle Union.
