SalonCentric – Why Work With Us?

In 2007, L'Oreal USA purchased several regional professional beauty distributors to begin building a single national distribution company - SalonCentric.  This company would not only be the official distributor for the L'Oreal Professional Products Division, it would also allow L'Oreal and a host of other top professional beauty brands to connect directly with the beauty professional in a way that is different from any other partnership in the industry.

Today, SalonCentric is comprised of:

  • Six distribution centers throughout the continental U.S.
  • One National Operating Center in St. Petersburg, FL that functions as our headquarters
  • 570 retail stores the sell exclusively to licensed beauty professionals
  • More than 600 sales professionals who provide consulting services to large salons on products and innovations to grow their business
  • A 24/7 B2B eCommerce and information/edcuation website

In addition to selling L'Oreal branded products, we also sell a wide array of non-L'Oreal products that complement and diversity of portfolio to better meet our customers' needs.

    I have been working at SalonCentric full-time (More than a year)


    I have been an employee of Saloncentric/L'Oréal for just over a year and have to say I'm so proud to work for them. The way they have stepped up during the COVID-19 crisis is an outstanding example of what companies of integrity do to take care of their people.
    -They have kept their staff employed and ensured salaries full well knowing that money won't be coming in in the amount it previously had been.
    -They set up a virtual university to educate staff during the down time to help them be better servants of the industry after coming back online.
    - They've contributed to Feeding America, PBA and help to produce hand sanitizer during COVID-19
    The list goes on and on in how they have contributed to the beauty industry during this time. I'm truly grateful to work for such an amazing company!


    I don't have any cons.
