Industry Studies

NEW!  The SPCP is proud to be conducting its fifth study, Industry Profile Study: Vision 2015

As Permanent Cosmetic Professionals, many of you have relied upon data collected by the SPCP through our four Industry Profile Studies: Vision 2003 through Vision 2012. The compiled information has been frequently used by industry professionals, related industries, and the media. While much of the available data from these studies remain current, it is essential we continue to track industry trends to provide the most accurate information available.

This study is all about you, who you are, where you are, your professional profile, and services you offer. Each response is essential to achieve the needed information to keep our industry moving forward globally.

No other organization has tracked similar data over such a long period of time. Your participation is essential to delivering quality data, and is much appreciated. Membership in the SPCP is not required – please share this with all who are active in the permanent cosmetic industry through June 30, 2015.


The SPCP is pleased to provide the results of the Industry Profile Study. With nearly a thousand technicians reporting worldwide, this is the largest and most complete study to date for the permanent cosmetic industry. While this timely and critical data is reported here in a concise format, we are able to provide specific details upon request. This information is invaluable to the permanent cosmetic technician, trainer, and supplier.

The SPCP Vision studies are now considered the gold standard for tracking trends in our industry.  A few of the questions have changed, but overall we are comparing the same data from study to study.
