Monat: the new way to retail as a freelancer

Being a freelance hair expert with flexible hours is certainly a win/win scenario for many.  But for those who are missing out on commissions from product recommendations and sales that they used to earn whilst in employment – being freelance can be one big slap in the face.  But we may have found the perfect solution. Introducing Monat.  A skin and hair product company which provides the opportunity to earn additional income alongside your at-home or in-salon treatments, without the upfront costs of purchasing and holding stock.  The best of both worlds? Read on!

Monat is a healthy ageing brand which launched in the USA in 2014. Its mission is to help people everywhere enjoy beautiful, fulfilling lives through exceptional, naturally based products, to provide fun and rewarding business, and to encourage a family-orientated culture. Offering a retail model that rewards both entrepreneurial spirit and a sense of community, Monat employs a direct selling e-commerce model, which offers important benefits to people who want an opportunity to earn additional income and build a business of their own.

“We have seen a recent increase in new Market Partners joining from the professional hair and beauty sector. Not having to buy or store stock or lose commission to online shops is a big positive to our freelance hair and beauty Market Partners.  We also work with them to develop their own voice and message through our intensive education programme and by sharing strong imagery and assets, which all helps to create a successful business of their own,” explains Ros Simmons, Managing Director of Monat Global UK & Europe.

So if you’re looking for a way to make the world of freelancing work for you, instead of against you, visit to find out more.
