Valued at €77 billion at retail sales price in 2016, the European cosmetics and personal care market is the largest in the world.

The largest national markets for cosmetics and personal care products within Europe are Germany (€13 billion

True, but barber supply could only be a minor, minor part of it. Nevertheless, most probably, a quite dynamic one.

Everybody says that, in France, while there were only unisex hairdressers before, now there is a boom in the number of barber shops all over the country.

While in northern Paris, I was able to see the fact that there are lots of shops being opened by locals of Arab and Turkish origin. 

Accordingly, “Barber supply” is also handled by those, too. If you want to do business in the ethnic segment here, to find an barber supplier of Arab origin is always a plus.

Lyon seems to be coming second after Paris, in terms of sizeable markets – after a far distance.

Located in a very central position in Europe, French market is influenced by market players in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Spain. Literally all neighbours.

Go and get it – potential is there – a potential à la française…
