Coronavirus: Lookfantastic opens influencer programme to struggling freelance beauty industry

The British online cosmetics retailer has created a limited number of spaces for self-employed hair, nail and make-up experts

Online retailer Lookfantastic has opened up its influencer marketing programme to the professional beauty industry.

The affiliate programme sees members receive a commission on any sales that come directly from tracked links on the social media platforms.

According to the British Beauty Council, which partnered with Lookfantastic on the expansion, the programme can help support self-employed beauty and hair professionals during the pandemic.

To curb the spread of coronavirus, salons have closed and freelance make-up artists, hair stylists, nail technicians and beauty therapists are out of work.

"If you’re an independent salon owner, hairdresser, barber, nail technician or beauty expert of any kind, we want to hear from you," said Lookfantastic.

The e-commerce company described the opportunity as a way for beauty industry professionals to develop exciting and engaging content relevant to Lookfantastic customers.

Places are limited, but selected members will receive both a link and a code to include in each post, and their content may be featured on Lookfantastic's online and social platforms.
