Independent Beauty Professionals is the virtual home for Beauty Pros looking to start or grow their own businesses. We are a strong, inclusive and supportive community of Hairstylists, Makeup Artists, Estheticians and Nail Techs (or ‘Manicurists’, whichever you prefer!) who have come together to network and collaborate, to share resources, and to learn best practices. And most of all, to encourage each other to thrive personally and professionally!

If you’re a Solopreneur in the Beauty Industry, you know about the struggle and the hustle it takes to succeed. Now you don’t have to do it alone. IBP is a supportive community of Beauty Pros just like you that also believe in collaboration over competition. We strive to provide education, resources and networking opportunities that will connect you with other Solopreneurs across the beauty industry. We are not telling you how to improve your Social Media skills, or how to grow your Email Marketing List, we are providing you with a platform to share these areas of knowledge and expertise with one another! We’ll always have more to learn, and we all have something to offer!

Joining IBP will give you access to our member directory, where you can connect and interact with Beauty Professionals from all over – both within your specific industry and outside of it. You’ll gain full access to our educational resources and have the freedom to share your own with the community. You’ll be able to connect and share tips and information with Solopreneurs who are just like you.

Yes! We want this community to be a hub for education related to every Beauty niche. If you have a course or educational product or event, post it to your timeline and add it to the calendar in the member-only section of the website.

We are a growing community and want your help spreading the word! That’s why we reward members who get other members to join. Share your Affiliate Link with your network, on your social platforms, in your blog posts, or in your email marketing. All of your clicks will show on your dashboard here. We pay out $10 for each new member quarterly.

If you are currently a member, post your listing here. If not, we would love to get the word out about your space! We have several advertising opportunities available. Please contact us to learn more.

Our community is targeted toward Independent Practitioners, and it was built especially for Solo Beauty Professionals who own their own business. If you own a Salon or Spa that offers space to Independent Pros, we’d love to have you join!
