My Life in Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald
Lucy lives with her mom and grandmother and has dreams of making her own make-up and skin care line when she gets older. She has the opportunity to practice her skills with the samples sent to the pharmacy owned by her family. Lucy has grown up in the pharmacy and is stunned when she overhears her mom and grandmother talking about how they might have to sell both the pharmacy and their house to make ends meet. Lucy is determined to save the pharmacy but is not sure how she can help. She gets her first break when the high school homecoming queen comes into the store with a hair emergency and Lucy is able to help her save the day. Word spreads and before long Lucy has a budding salon business. But she's going to need an even bigger idea if she's going to save her family's business.
