By Tracy Morin B orn in a small city on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey called Antalya, Mehmet Kanar may seem an unlikely beauty business success story. In fact, the managing partner of Kanar Inc., in Carlstadt, New Jersey, Mehmet had a first career as a standout accountant. After relocating to the U.S., he founded his company in 2007, and has since built one of the largest B2B barber supply distributors in the market. He even delved into manufacturing his own successful brands. Mehmet maintains a hands-on, do-it-yourself approach, pinpointing solutions, fast-tracking new technology and always thinking ahead–all while retaining an approachable, customer-friendly attitude as a one-stop shop. Despite his impressive track record, he still feels there's a lot to learn. "The industry we find ourselves in definitely has a big learning curve and is constantly changing," Mehmet muses. "Even now, though I've been in it for over 10 years, I constantly feel like I am missing something or am behind–but it definitely keeps me interested!" Mehmet recently sat down with Beauty Store Business to talk about his unexpected shift into beauty, the strategies and philosophies that have fueled the skyrocketing success of his company and where he sees Kanar headed in the future.
