Premier Beauty: Celebrating 35 Years of Growth and Partnership


In 1988, Premier Beauty opened its doors in Highland Park, IL with one simple goal: to provide top-quality beauty products and excellent customer service to salons and stylists in the area. Today, 35 years later, Premier has become a trusted name in the beauty industry, with a wide range of brands and a dedicated team of over 100 employees.

One of the key factors in Premier's success has been our commitment to partnering with the best manufacturers in the beauty industry. From the very beginning, we have focused on carrying only the highest quality products, starting with its first brand, TIGI (now Bedhead). Over the years, Premier has expanded its offerings to include over 35 different brands, including KEVIN MURPHY, Keune, Milbon, Alfaparf and more.

But Premier's success is not just about the products we carry. It's also about the relationships we have built with salons and stylists over the years. We understand that our success is closely tied to the success of our partners, and we have worked hard to establish strong partnerships based on trust and mutual respect.

"We believe that the key to success in this industry is collaboration," says Steve, the founder and CEO of Premier Beauty. "We work closely with our salon and stylist partners to understand their needs and help them achieve their goals. It's not just about selling products – it's about building relationships and supporting each other."

To that end, Premier has established a number of programs and initiatives to support our salon and stylist partners. These include education and training programs, marketing support, guarantees, and personalized service from our knowledgeable team of sales reps.

Of course, Premier's success wouldn't be possible without the hard work and dedication of our employees. From our humble beginnings out of the trunk of Steve's car, Premier has grown to become a major distributor in the Midwest, with a 55,000 sqft distribution center in Northbrook, IL that serves the Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan markets.

But despite our growth, Premier remains committed to our core values of quality, service, and partnership. As we celebrate our 35th anniversary, we look forward to continuing to serve our partners and the beauty industry with the same passion and dedication that has driven our success for the past 35 years.
