LaTonya Turnage Launches Membership Network to support

aspiring and tenured beauty professionals


Baltimore, MD— (March 13, 2019) – This week marks the soft launch of LaTonya Turnage’s Beauty Business Unplugged, a membership network will provide members with training and resources for beauty professionals in the makeup, hair, and nail industries. Beauty Business Unplugged will offer members access to a variety of training designed to enhance business acumen, professional skills, and meet licensing requirements. Business development and financial management programs will be offered to assist owners with best practices on business operations, marketing, and accounting principles.

The online community for beauty entrepreneurs who want to create and connect over beauty, business, passion, and profits could not come at a better time. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly one million people working in the primary service segments of the beauty market, and there are strong growth expectations. Researchers predict between 10 and 22 percent growth in service providers by 2024. Beauty Business Unplugged will help strengthen beauty entrepreneurs’ businesses so they can build sustainable and thriving companies and offer quality service.

“The Beauty Business Unplugged is thrilled to be able to position beauty entrepreneurs for success,” said LaTonya Turnage, CEO, Elite Secrets and Founder of Beauty Business Unplugged. “Given the number of novice service providers entering the industry, the need to support these businesses is especially critical. I created this group to connect with others and cultivate a community for beauty entrepreneurs looking to turn their passion into profits, who value community over competition and crave to learn more about the businesses they desire to grow.”

Membership will open officially on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. To learn more about Beauty Business Unplugged, visit

The Top 4 Secrets to Success in the Beauty Business 

The Top 4 Secrets to Success in the Beauty Business 

With a license in cosmetology and state board exams under my belt, I started my career in makeup with M.A.C. Cosmetics and Estee Lauder brands. After 14 years of juggling makeup artistry and a corporate job, I launched my beauty business, Elite Secrets. And, as they say, “the rest is history.”

When I look back on when I started my business, I can’t help but wonder “If I only knew then what I know now…” So as all great mentors do, I’m sharing the most valuable lessons I learned in the beginning. Read on to learn the things that kept me grounded and focused as I launched my own beauty business. These practical tips would apply to anyone who’s starting their own business, so please share with your business bestie.

1. Decide how your business and money will work.

Don’t spend another dollar on another program or service until you have a handle on this part first. Get clear on how much money you need to make to survive, based on the kind of beauty business you own

2. Know that nothing will work unless you do.

This is especially true when it comes to launching your beauty business. Opportunities won’t always just fall into your lap, and eventually, you will have to work at making money. So instead of putting it off, create a plan to attract your dream customers now and do the work to make your dreams come true.

3. Get very clear on what you want from your beauty business.

Define how you want to be perceived and who you want as your customer. Otherwise, you’ll just be running in circles doing work that doesn’t motivate you for clients you aren’t excited about working with every day.

4. Join a community that you can go to for answers, advice, and support.

Connect with groups that get you. Don’t miss out for fear of asking for help or sharing your struggles. Some of the biggest, most important breakthroughs can come from your significant hurdles and challenges. Keeping them to yourself and suffering through them alone will only delay your success.

Looking for a community? I invite you to join the Beauty Business Unplugged a specialized monthly subscription service—made specifically for entrepreneurs in the world of beauty. We provide the best resources on how to build a business built on passion and intended for profits.

The Beauty Business Unplugged gives you exclusive access to other members, business experts, and resources that will guide you step-by-step on how to grow a profitable beauty business that fits your lifestyle.
