Beauty Supply Institute's Annual Beauty Supply Ownership Conference; Houston, Texas on March 15-16




Anne Holder, 20-year veteran hair stylist

Anne Holder, has been doing hair ever since she was a teenager. While she served in the military, she continued to be what’s called a “Kitchen Technician” until she was able to complete her service and pursue her cosmetology career. Since then Holder, a Virginia native, has moved to Atlanta to open another salon of her own and establish her own hair line called “Simply Straight”.

She read the book “Power M.O.V.E.: How to Transition from Employee to Employer” and realized there was more she could learn about entrepreneurship. She did research on the author, tracked him down at an appearance at “Conquer Conference Atlanta” in 2012 and the chance meeting gave her a breakthrough.

Holder was intrigued to learn more about his work to help female entrepreneurs in the black hair care business and decided to work closely with him. Holder said, “Even as a licensed stylist I always assumed Koreans had some type of secret competitive edge. They have such a strong presence at the retail businesses so I believed the myths. I learned that there is nothing they control at the retail level and that they only controlled their manufactured brands.”

Holder decided to learn more about the retail business of beauty products by working for Beauty Supply Institute (, a training and consulting organization that helps turn consumers into owners, while running her hair line and salon at nights and weekends. Since its inception in 2007, Beauty Supply Institute has generated over $10 million in revenues in urban communities across America. African-Americans make-up 96% of the beauty supply retailers but less than 3% of the owners. In a $15 billion business, it would seem like there is some imbalance.

While at Beauty Supply Institute, Holder has seen stores go from idea to opening and has been instrumental in leading aspiring black women (and men) to becoming beauty supply store owners. She said, “There are significant opportunities for black families to change their economic situation if they are willing to work hard and learn about retailing and beauty. I thought I knew all I needed to know in business but I now see that there is always more you can learn.”

Beauty Supply Institute will hold its 5th annual Beauty Supply Ownership Conference in Houston, Texas on March 15-16, 2014. There 9-month beauty supply retail program enters into its 2nd year in Atlanta, Georgia. Classes start February 8, 2014.
