REWARD SYSTEM: Kérastase's new e-commerce site, which is being launched April 9, rewards salons when users buy products online. During checkout, users are asked to select the Kérastase Consultant Salon where they usually purchase items or the closest salon by zip code. Salons will be awarded 20 percent commission on all online purchases when they are selected. Users are also encouraged to write in the name of their favorite stylist. This gives the salon and Kérastase the option to track and reward stylists who are most often cited.
