Pump Up the Volume: What Products Are in High Demand in Salons?

Consumers are requesting blowout services more often than they did a year ago. According to the recent release of first-quarter findings from Kline PRO: Salon Retail Products and Database, the number of salon blowouts is up 36% in the United States and 46% in Canada.  

Naturally, as clients want to replicate the volume achieved by their stylists at home, volumizing products increased by an average of nearly 12% across both countries. Texturizing is also picking up, increasing almost 3% compared to the first quarter of last year.
