The Invention Of Salons
It was Martha who invented hair salons as we know them
today, developed a line of hair care products, and provided
hundreds of less fortunate women with the opportunity to
launch their own companies.
Few people are familiar with Martha Harper, yet many people
who attend beauty salons still employ her inventions. This
unusual woman worked her way up from being a servant to
becoming the boss of a chain of more than 500 beauty salons.
Martha Matilda Harper was born in 1857 in Canada. She had
been a servant in Canada for 22 years. She was working at a
German doctor's home, where he shared with her some avantgarde
(at the time) hair care concepts. Martha later discovered
the value of good cleanliness and that combing increases blood
flow to the scalp and hastens hair development.
These discoveries gave Martha ideas she attempted on her hair
with tremendous success. The doctor gave the girl formula for a
special hair tonic in recognition of Martha's interest in what he
was doing. Martha didn’t want to be a sought-after servant, but
a businesswoman.
