Beauty Industry Group Extends its Market Presence with Acquisition of International Designs Corporation

Beauty Industry Group, the industry leader for professional hair extensions and related beauty products, announced the acquisition of International Designs Corporation. Founded in 2005, International Designs is a provider of professionally-installed hair extensions under two leading hair extensions brands—Hot Heads and Hair Talk. The Florida-based company has built an established network of strategic distributors across 40-plus countries worldwide.

Beauty Industry Group partnered with private equity group Gauge Capital in June 2016 to accelerate growth, including through acquisitions such as this one. The investment allows Beauty Industry Group to further establish its leadership position in the professional hair extension sector, solidify its high-quality hair extension sourcing capabilities and continue growth across its branded beauty care portfolio.
