The Enrich Salon chain is getting a ‘makeover’. The ‘go-to’ salon for all hair and beauty services will now also offer a dedicated retail area where you can shop your favourite beauty brands.
You are a very successful salon chain. Why the foray into retail?
Enrich has always been known for their best-in-class services offered at the salons and also managed a successful range of hair and skin professional range of retail products. It is a natural progression to now offer a 360-degree beauty experience and expand our retail offering where customers can also buy a wide range of professional care and other beauty brands too in our stores.
This foray is a natural, seamless extension of the brand. Enrich has now extended its offering to a wider selection of D2C categories in skin, hair, personal care, bath & body, fragrances and men’s grooming. With this launch we are unlocking the potential of our physical and online store to create an endless-aisle shopping experience and a bridgeto-discover high-street, premium, and emerging brands with curated professional beauty services at one destination.
Will enrich Beauty stores offer services too… tell us more?
We at Enrich have a strong belief that we will be the one-stop solution for skincare, haircare and other beauty services. Every customer need has been carefully chosen where they can come in and get the services done, whether its skin, hair, and even hands and feet where services are offered from classic to premium price points. Now every new Enrich Salon will have just as much space dedicated for retail shopping of beauty products as the company undergoes a strategy evolution from Enrich Salons to Enrich Beauty. We also have a strong membership loyalty programme where the customers benefit from discounts and also reward points which ensure brand trust. Soon you will see all our existing Enrich Salons transition to new formats offering a stellar line-up of brands and beauty services.
