Are You A Woman Looking For A Grant For Your Hair Care & SkinCare Business?… You’ve Found The Right Site

Did you know that women make up 90% of the hair care industry? That shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the exciting news is this:

An ever growing number of these women are starting their own businesses, especially as hair stylists or creators of their own brand of hair care products. Yes, individual women are now the innovators in the hair care industry.

Despite the numbers, female business owners in the hair care space often lack the money to take their products or services to the next level.

We at WomensNet are inspired by women who use their passion and skills to provide a good or service to benefit their community. That includes women in the hair care industry.. We want to see more women doing — and making money — at what they love.

That’s why we give “Business Specific” Grants based on each month’s category — including a grant specific to women in the hair care and products industry during the month of August.

August’s Business Specific Grant is Hair Care & SkinCare

Your Hair Care & SkinCare applications can include any subcategory such as:

  • Mobile Hair Care Service
  • Home/Senior Hair Care Service
  • Hair Stylists
  • Hair Coloring
  • Spa Salons
  • Cosmetology
  • Esthetician
  • Skin Care Products
  • Hair & Styling Products
  • Wigs & Hair Extensions
  • Weaves & Braiding
  • Facial & Laser Treatments
