    Hi Larry! smile

    Under Jewelry I might add "Body Jewelry"

    Under Bridal, "Bridal Shoes"

    I'd add "Hairstyles" somewhere, but it's not really hair care, or accessories, so I'm not sure where...

    I'd add a Vegan category or somehow mention the vegan categories of cosmetics, clothes, handbags, shoes, hair care products, etc.

    And under history of fashion I'd add "Middle Eastern"

    And somewhere I'd add the fashion categories of Retro, BoHo, Classic, Trendy, Casual, etc....?

      You are on a roll with your suggestions!  smile

      I really like your thoughts here.  I'll change Hair Care to "Hairstyles & Hair Care"

      I'll add the fashion categories that you suggest and add the additional categories for Vegan, History of Fashion, Bridal Fashion, and Jewelry.

        Thanks, Larry! You know how it is, fashion and beauty being the only thing of importance in the universe. ;-)

    We're all for it if it can include medical apparel: nurses/dr.'s scrub uniforms.

      Hi PAD123,

      Thanks for the request.

      Sure.  I'll find a place for Medical Apparel.

    Good morning Larry, would we be able to have a Herbal Category?  Most of the beauty sub topics would fit into it. That would be great. Thank you regards Zsuzsy

    1. larryfreeman profile image82
      larryfreemanposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      Hi Zsuzsy,

      Thanks for your suggestion.  Would "Vegan & Natural Products" work?  Then, I can combine Vegan and Herbals into one subcategory.

        Zsuzsy Beeposted 10 years agoin reply to this

        Sorry Larry I missed your posting of 4 days ago. I think herbal and organic cosmetics, creams and body-splashes should fit okay under the vegan umbrella.
        Will you be able to add extra headings if we end up missing out on an important sideline?
        Thanks and thumbs up on this ginormeous job (I know that word is not available in spell checker...yet) regards Zsuzsy

    THE LIPposted 10 years ago

    Hello Larry.I see an extensive amount of research done on the categories but no room for the models,make-up artistes,designers n stylists not to forget the passion photographers?
    Any scope for incorporating them 2?
    If yes I cud be of assistance?

      Hi The Lip,

      Good point.  I have a Designers category but perhaps that is not broad enough.  Would this be a "Beauty Industry" category?

      If you would like to help, could you put together a short bullet list of topics you would like to see added in a "Beauty Industry" category.

    Sexy Healthposted 10 years ago

    As a fashion designer, currently focusing on handbags, I would think you would like to add a couple more sub-categories to your 'handbag' category. I think Messenger Bags, Backpacks, Diaper Bags and Briefcases would be great. Anyway, just a suggestion...

      Hi Sexy Health,

      Thanks for the suggestions.  I'm glad to add them to our list.

      Hi deccasandy,

      I added a Shawls & Stoles category to Women's Apparel.  Great suggestions for 4th level categories.  I'll keep these in mind.

    Thankyou for the categories, they're a good tool.

    In cosmetics and also health, is there any category for ingredients - like what goes in cosmetics / skincare etc. I do have a hub that would fall into this category. Also under cosmetics or skincare, a sub category for skin lightening as this falls under a cosmetic topical application? Or would it be put somewhere else?

    In hairstyles and haircare - maybe Hair Straighteners?

    How about something for Toxic Ingredients / Toxic chemicals?

    Also, under Ear Health - you could add one for Hearing Aids / Audiology?

    There's so many, the mind boggles! What a good job!
