Kao is committed to helping salons recover and rebuild their businesses as our industry gradually reopens. We launched the Kao Salon Industry Recovery Initiative at the height of the pandemic to provide cash flow, business-building programs, and inspirational education to the salon community. In the US, we provided PPE and sanitation kits to more than 2000 salons, and 3000 US salons have benefited from customized reopening plans provided through the Kao Salon Alliance program. As stylists get back behind the chair and businesses get back on their feet, Kao stands with you.
