Hair Dryers: Bonnet vs. Handheld


To many, a hair dryer may seem like just a hair dryer. After all, it’s a beauty tool that gets users from point A (wet hair) to point B (dry hair). However in the multicultural beauty industry there are varying types of dryers, and as a store owner it is important to know their differences and specialties.

Manufacturer Profile

It may seem like “multicultural beauty” is a universal term with one meaning, but with hair it might not be the case. We recently spoke with Jane Carter of Jane Carter Solution, and she explained that “culture has little to do with hair type.” She clarified, “Hair is hair. It’s either straight, wavy, curly or coily. It’s either fine, medium or coarse in texture. If we market to consumers with that in mind, I think it would make their buying choices easier.” Read on to learn more about this company that believes “beauty is about feeling great from the inside out.”


Jane Carter Solution

‘다문화의 아름다움’ 이라고 하면, 마치 서로 화합된 표현처럼 들리지만, 헤어 카테고리에서는 그렇지 않다. 우리는 최근 제인 카터 솔루션의 제인 카터씨와 인터뷰를 하였고 그녀는 ‘문화는 헤어 타입과 거의 관련이 없다” 고 설명했다. 그녀는 명확하게 ‘헤어는 헤어일 뿐이다.’ 라고 선을 그었다. 즉, 타입은 결국 직모, 웨이브, 컬리( 곱슬) 또는 코일리 중 하나인 것이다. 모발의 질감도 얇은 모, 중간 모, 굵은 모로 나뉘어 지는 것이다. 만약 우리가 그러한 마인드로 시장에 진출한다면, 소비자들의 구매 선택을 더 쉽게 만들 것이라 생각한다.”

ere at the OTC Beauty Magazine office we are still in New Year organization and positive outlook mode. Our files are in order, calendars are set for 2017 and we have a month-by-month plan in place for the next 12 months. We feel that we are armed and ready for anything that may come our way, and we want the same to be true for you in both your personal and professional business life. Likewise, your customers should also have their “toolbox” stocked up and ready to go, and you can help! All of the items in your store should be checked to ensure they are in tip-top shape for selling, but especially pay attention to your beauty tool offerings. This month we are focusing on tools—from hair brushes and makeup applicators to electric hair styling tools and clippers—and we hope you find something new to add to your store’s tool inventory. After all, your customers must have the right tool for the job in order to achieve success with the look they try to achieve each day. Consider how difficult it would be to try and drive a screw into a piece of wood using a hammer. Although possibly achievable, it would be much easier using a drill, which is the correct tool for the job. Your customers also need correct, updated tools to make their beauty routines as efficient and flawless as they can be. In addition to the product collection showcased in the Marketplace section, we also offer knowledge on tool and shop sanitation, items used with mascara application, and even a comparison of flat irons and pressing combs…and that’s just a few of the topics discussed. We invite you to take a look at each section and see what all is inside.

Expert Advice By Mezei Jefferson

When it comes to heat styling multicultural hair, it is important to use hot tools and styling products correctly. Proper use will protect the structural integrity of the hair and especially on natural hair being worn smoothed, it will protect the curl pattern for when the consumer decides to return curly. Let’s take a look first at the products that should be used on multicultural hair before the hot tools are applied. After shampooing and conditioning it is good to use a protein-based deep treatment to strengthen the hair. Adding more protein to the hair will not only keep hair healthy and fight breakage, but it will protect the natural curl pattern as well. Once the hair is cleansed it is now time to begin styling. Always begin the styling process with some type of style primer to put a barrier between the hair and the heat from the finishing tools. This can be in the form of styling gel, foams, sprays or lotions. Usually these products will say “Heat Protectant” on them, but if not, just look for ingredients in the formula like PVP/DMAPA acrylates copolymer, quaternium 70, hydrolyzed wheat protein and silicones (silicone quaterniums, dimethicone). All of the mentioned ingredients have been proven to protect the hair against excessive heat. When applying these products, make sure they are thoroughly distributed throughout hair, especially towards the ends of the hair where heat damage occurs first. A great product to use is the Dark and Lovely 6 Week

Anti-Reversion Crème Serum or the Optimum Silky Blow Out Elixir. Both will provide silky results on all textures of hair and block out the excessive heat from hot styling tools. Next, use the setting method for the desired style, whether it is molding the hair and setting under hooded dryer, blow dried or set with some type of rod or

roller. If a blow dryer is to be used, the position of the dryer is critical to not cause heat damage to the hair shaft. When blow drying hair, take small controlled sections to begin the blow dry. Hold the blow dryer on an angle parallel to the hair and not directly on top of hair section. This allows the air to blow across the hair and smooths the cuticle for shinier and smoother results. Holding a blow dryer to blow directly into the hair will cause internal damage to hair by breaking down the proteins and will lead to

dryness and loss of curl pattern on multicultural hair. To know if there is already heat damage, look at hair when it is wet. If the hair has straight ends to it, the straight ends are heat damaged. Currently there is nothing to cure heat damaged ends on textured hair but to cut them off and properly maintain the hair afterwards, making sure heat damage doesn’t reoccur. In addition, a light siliconebased spray or serum is good to use before a flat iron or curl iron is used. This will help to absorb and even out the heat to the hair, and help to prevent heat damage. Then take small diagonal partings and start with the flat iron close to the scalp; in one continuous motion, slide iron to ends of hair. Do not let the iron sit still on the hair at any point, especially at the ends. If a curling iron is used, make sure not to hold the iron on the ends of hair too long. Start with the iron in the middle of the section of hair and allow the ends of the hair to go into the iron last. This will protect the ends of the hair and create a curl that will last longer when styled. Using hot tools and heat protectant products correctly can give multicultural hair many different style options without sacrificing the natural curl pattern or integrity to the hair. Women have always been style chameleons with their hair, and now they can change up looks while maintaining healthy hair without sacrificing their natural curl patterns.

숙지하는 것이 중요합니다. 접촉시간은 도구가 소독 화학 물질과 접촉하여 효과를 내는 시간입니다. 미용실에서 사용되는 대부분 침지와 스프레이 제품은 10분의 접촉시간을 갖고 있으며 이것을 실제로 관찰하는 것이 중요합니다. 이제 제품을 소유하고 접촉시간을 이해했으니 올바르게 혼합되었고 주에서 허용되는 용기 유형인지 확인을 해야 합니다 - 요기는 대부분 덮여있어야 하며 대용량을 담을 수 있을 만큼 커야 합니다. 이제 준비가 되셨습니다. 청결하지 않은 비 다공성 (유리, 플라스틱 또는 금속) 도구를 씻고 도구의 모든 잔류물을 제거해야 합니다. 이 과정은 비누와 물 또는 Ship Shape Powder, Ship Shape Surface, Appliance Cleaner와 같은 화학세제로 할 수 있습니다. 제품을 깨끗이 씻어낸 후에 살균제에 담그거나 스프레이하면 됩니다 (주에서 스프레이가 허용되는

can be immersed into the disinfectant or sprayed down thoroughly (if your state allows for sprays). Allow the item to remain immersed for the full contact time – generally 10 minutes – and then remove, rinse and allow to air dry or dry with a clean or single use paper towel. It is important to remember that items that are made of materials other than glass, metal or plastic are considered single use items and must be discarded after a single use. Very frequently we see items that are marked as “disinfectable” or “sanitizable” but are made of porous materials like paper and cardboard. Regardless of what an item says, only non-porous items may be disinfected and re-used on consecutive clients. Doing the right thing in terms of disinfection may feel like wasted time and money until you have a bad outcome for a client or yourself. Besides the risk of illness with pathogens like MRSA, even simple pathogens can create problems for your business. Common things such as ringworm and folliculitis are easily grown and spread in a salon environment and while they won’t kill anyone, they might kill your business. In this technological age where service choices are guided by rating services like Yelp!, giving a great service in a clean environment can be a 5 star rating… giving someone ringworm is likely a dreaded one star! Social media like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat can document to the world your amazing salon or your lack of attention to health and safety… the choice is yours!

MRSA와 같은 병원균에의 걸릴 수 있는 질병 이외에도 간단한 병원균조차도 사업에 문제를 초래할 수 있습니다. 백선과 모낭염과 같은 일반적인 균들은 미용실 환경에서 쉽게 자라고 널리 퍼집니다. 이 균들은 아무도 사망에 이르게 하지는 않지만 당신의 사업을 죽일 수도 있습니다. Yelp! 와 같은 평가 사이트에서 청결점수로 만점을 받을 시에 소비자들은 당신의 사업장을 선택할 확률이 높아집니다. 누군가에게 백선을 퍼트리는 것은 공포의 빵점을 도래할 수 있습니다! 페이스북, 인스타그램, 스냅챗과 같은 SNS는 멋진 미용실 또는 청결하지 않은 미용실을 보도할 수 있습니다... 선택은 당신의 것입니다!

Business Tips By Tabitha Odell


CUSTOMERS COMING BACK TO A PARTICULAR OTC STORE 스토어에 단골고객을 유지하는 방법 In this time of “Super Service” it is a race and a challenge to get your customers to become repeat customers and frequent your store whenever they have a beauty need. There are some things to consider when working on strategizing a plan to communicate with your customers. It is best to work with a marketing professional and develop a marketing plan. You can make a plan for the year and then set up your schedule of implementation by the quarter and month. When developing your plan these are some things that you should consider.

요즘 같은 시기에 “슈퍼 서비스” 를 제공하는 것은 충성도 높은 고객을 만들기 위한 방법이다. 고객의 관심을 얻기 위해 반복적으로 접근하며 그들이 원하는 매장이 되도록 계속해서 또는 충분한 관심을 주어야 한다. 고객과 소통하기 위하여 계획을 전략하는 일을 할 때에 고려해야 할 몇 가지가 있다. 그 중 하나는 마케팅 전문 작업과 마케팅 계획을 개발하는 것이다. 우선 이 한 해에 대한 계획을 짤 수 있으며 월별 또는 분기별로 일정을 구현하도록 설정할 수 있다. 여러분이 계획을 개발할 때 고려해야 할 몇 가지가 있다.

1. Community Involvement Get involved in your local community, or in causes that impact your potential customer base. It is a good way to generate “impressions” on members of your community. It is possible for small businesses to partner with other organizations to both meet a need and promote your business. If you don’t know how to become involved in your community, consider joining your local Chamber of Commerce or Rotary Club. The meetings these organizations have will allow you to meet other business owners who may be actively involved in their communities. You may find many opportunities to meet the needs of your community and promote your business at the same time. OTCs should look to give the impression that they care about the consumers. There has been a long standing uncomfortable, almost contentious relationship between the Black consumers and the Korean store owners. By finding ways to emerge your stores into the community in which your store resides, you find a way to bridge the gap and work toward earning loyal consumers who are glad to shop in a “neighborhood” store.


OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017

1. 커뮤니티 참여 지역사회와 계속해서 연계하고, 잠재적인 고객 기반에 영향을 미칠 원인을 생각하여 그에 관여해 보는 것이다. 사회 구성원에게 노출을 할 수 있는 방법은 그들의 커뮤니티이다. 만약 당신이 당신의 지역 사회에 참여하는 방법을 모르는 경우, 당신의 지역 로터리 클럽 또는 지역 상공 회의소에 가입을 할 것을 추천한다. 이 미팅은 다른 자영업자의 오너들과 적극적으로 사회에 참여할 수 있는 다른 기회를 준다. 당신의 지역 사회의 요구를 충족하고 동시에 귀하의 비즈니스를 홍보 할 수 있는 많은 기회를 찾을 수 있다. OTC는 그들이 소비자에게 계속해서 관심을 준다는 인식과 인상을 갖게 해야 한다. 오랜 시간 동안 블랙 컨슈머와 한국 상점 오너 사이의 논쟁을 초래할 불편한 관계가 지속되어 왔다. 격차를 해소할 방법을 찾아야 하며, 이웃 매장에서 쇼핑할 만한 충성 고객들을 얻을 수 있도록 방법을 강구해야 한다.

2. Cause Marketing

2. 코즈 마케팅(cause marketing)

Cause marketing of a for-profit product or business benefits a nonprofit charity or supports a social cause in some way. This type of marketing works best when you feel great about the help you’re providing to a nonprofit group. Work with an organization you believe in and something that matters most to you. A solid cause-marketing campaign starts with making the best partnership, so as you go through the nonprofit selection process, look for a cause that relates to your company or its products. Cause marketing involves donating products or services and not simply writing a check. This can help form even stronger consumer associations between what products you offer and the work you do with you partner. The best scenario is when your affiliation is a win-win for you and them. When you choose the nonprofit you will have to define how it will help your business increase its visibility, brand or company awareness. If the partner organization has a newsletter or social media presence with its patrons, agree to do joint promotions. Make sure you know how you are allowed to use the organization’s logo and name in your marketing campaigns, and that you provide them with your logo and how you want it used in their promotional materials on the Web, social media and print. To have success in cause marketing you will need to motivate your audience to take action, such as making them come to your store to participate in your marketing effort with your partner.

영리 목적의 제품이나 비즈니스의 코즈 마케팅은 어떤 식으로든 비영리 자선활동 또는 사회적 원인을 지원한다. 이러한 마케팅 유형은 비영리 그룹에 당신이 도움을 제공할 때 가장 잘 작동된다. 당신이 중요하다고 믿는 조직과 함께 일하는 것이다. 단단한 코즈 마케팅 캠페인은 최고의 파트너십을 만드는 것과 함께 시작한다. 그러므로 비영리 선택 과정을 통해 살펴보고 당신의 회사나 제품과 관련한 요인을 찾는다. 코즈 마케팅은 단순히 체크를 써주는 것이 아닌 제품이나 서비스를 기부하는 것을 포함한다. 당신의 파트너와 함께 할 일과 당신이 제공하는 상품 사이에서 이는 더 강력한 소비자 단체를 구성할 수 있도록 도와준다. 당신의 제휴처(협력사)와 당신 모두가 윈윈 하는 것이 가장 좋은 시나리오이다. 당신이 비영리를 선택한다면, 그 곳이 어떻게 당신의 비즈니스에 대한 인식, 브랜드 또는 비즈니스 가시성을 높일 수 있는지 정의를 내려야 한다. 만약 파트너 조직이 뉴스테러 또는 소셜 미디어가 존재하는 경우 공동 프로모션을 수행하는 것을 추천한다. 우선, 마케팅 캠페인 조직의 로고와 이름을 사용할 수 있도록 허용 방법을 알아보고, 원하는 방법은 웹, SNS, 인쇄물 등의 자신만의 홍보자료에 사용해야 한다. 코즈 마케팅의 성공을 위해 당신의 청중들, 즉 고객들이 행동을 취할 수 있도록 동기를 부여해야 한다. 예를 들어 당신의 파트너와 함께 당신의 마케팅에 참여할 수 있도록 끊임없이 유도해야 한다.

Quality customer service is the best way to keep customers coming back, thus ensuring long-term success.

3. Local Marketing Efforts

3. 로컬 마케팅 노력

Local store marketing or neighborhood marketing will specifically target the community around a physical store. All promotional messages are directed to the local population, rather than the mass market. Local marketing takes several forms: direct mail, in-store events, local team sponsorships, or advertisements in local print media. This in an effort to not only attract new customers, but also to get the customer to become repeat business. Local marketing is an excellent tool used by small businesses. Local marketing will allow you to develop a repeat customer base in the immediate vicinity of your business’s location. People like to shop near their homes; it saves time and is more convenient. Use local marketing tactics to different consumer segments, as identified by socio-economic standing, demographic composition, and purchasing values. This is something that your marketing professional will be able to help you identify and target.

로컬 스토어 마케팅 또는 이웃지역 마케팅(neighborhood marketing) 은 특히 실제 매장 주변의 지역 사회를 대상으로 한다. 모든 프로모션 메시지는 일반 대중 시장보다는 직접적인 지역 주민들을 타깃으로 한다. 로컬 마케팅은 직접적인 메일 수신, 매장 내 이벤트, 현지 팀 후원 또는 로컬 신문 광고 게재 등의 형태가 있다. 이러한 노력은 단순히 새로운 고객을 유치하는 것이 아니라 반복적으로 구매를 하도록 유도하는 것이라 중요한 가치가 있다. 로컬 마케팅은 소규모 기업에서 사용하는 훌륭한 툴이다. 로컬 마케팅은 즉시 당신의 사업 위치 근처에 반복적으로 올 수 있는 고객 기반을 개발할 수 있다. 사람들은 대개 자신의 집 근처에서 쇼핑하는 것을 좋아한다. 시간을 절약하고 더 편리하기 때문이다. 사회 경제적 상황, 인구통계학적 구성 및 구매 가치에 의해 식별되는 다양한 소비자 세그먼트에 현지 마케팅 전술을 사용한다.

4. Partnering with Manufacturers

4. 제조사와 협력

Collaboration should become a theme for success in the future. Effective collaboration can result in dramatic reductions in inventories and costs, especially combined with improved service levels, and customer satisfaction. Contact the manufacturers you purchase products from and ask for what opportunities they have for grassroots marketing and what opportunities they have for in-store promotions. See if they are running any campaigns that you can become a part of and ask what they are willing to do to include your store in their promotional calendar for the year. Ask about educational materials they have on their products that you can have to give to your customers when they ask questions about products.

협업은 미래의 성공을 위한 테마가 될 것이다. 효율적 협업은, 재고, 비용, 특히 향상된 서비스, 고객 만족 등의 극적인 감소를 발생할 수 있다. 당신이 구매한 제품의 제조업체에 문의하여 어떤 기회가 대중 마케팅을 위해 존재하는지 물어보고 그들이 매장 프로모션에 대해 진행할 수 있는지 정중히 부탁을 한다. 만약 당신이 그들이 진행하는 캠페인 중 일부가 될 수 있다면 연중 프로모션 일정 중 그들이 여러분의 매장을 위해서 무엇을 할 수 있는지 문의해라. 그들이 상품에 대해 갖고 있는 교육자료가 있는지 물어본 후 정중히 요청하여 고객들이 제품에 대한 질문을 할 때 올바른 정보를 제공할 수 있도록 돕는다. OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017


5. Quality Customer Service

5. 품질 고객 서비스

Customer service is all about consumers’ needs first and your needs second. If your consumers expect a response from you in 24 hours and you always respond much later, that’s putting your needs first and their needs second. Understand that consumers are like a spouse, they need to feel special to continually respond to your offers. You make your consumers feel special by over-delivering in every area, especially in those areas they don’t expect. Imagine how you’d feel if you sent an email with a question to a merchant and they responded within half an hour with an answer when you were expecting an answer the next day. You would definitely feel special. It’s a wonderful feeling. Create this feeling with your consumers. It’s also important that you stay in contact with your consumers, not only when you need to make a sale. This could be as simple as sending an online greeting on holidays. It could be giving helpful advice that you researched or offering something free that they really appreciate. Make sure whatever you do the quality is on par or better than whatever you’d sell them. This also means the presentation or packaging. Remember you always want to appear as putting their needs ahead of yours, even if you don’t all the time. Quality customer service is the best way to keep customers coming back, thus ensuring long-term success.

모든 고객 서비스는 고객들의 필요가 최우선시되며 귀하의 필요는 그 다음으로 여겨진다. 귀하의 고객들이 24시간내 귀하의 응답을 기대하고 있는데, 항상 훨씬 나중에 응답을 한다면, 이는 귀하의 요구가 최우선시 되고 그들의 필요는 나중으로 치부되는 것이다. 소비자는 마치 배우자처럼 그들이 지속적으로 이벤트에 응답할 수 있도록 특별한 느낌을 느끼게 할 필요가 있음을 이해해야 한다. 모든 지역에서 당신의 소비자들이 특별하게 느끼도록 계속해서 공급을 해야 하며 특히 그들이 기대하지 않는 지역에서 특별함을 제공해야 한다. 만약 당신이 상인에게 상품에 대한 질문을 이메일로 보냈을 때, 반나절 만에 답변을 받았다면 당신이 기대했던 하루가 지나 응답을 예상했던 것과 달리 어떻게 느껴질지 상상해보아라. 당신은 확실히 특별한 느낌을 갖게 될 것이다. 꽤 괜찮은 기업 혹은 셀러라고 느낄 것이다. 이러한 느낌을 계속해서 당신의 고객에게 만들 것을 추천한다. 당신이 소비자들에게 판매를 해야 할 경우가 아니더라도, 당신의 소비자와 연락을 지속적으로 유지하는 것도 중요하다. 이는 연휴 시즌에 인사말을 보내는 게 실 예시가 될 수 있다. 예를 들어 유용한 팁을 제공하거나 무료로 제공할 만한 무언가를 주는 것도 좋은 방법이다. 무엇을 하거나 주건 간에, 그 질로 비교하면 당신이 그들에게 판매하는 것 무엇보다 더 큰 가치를 나타낼 수 있다. 이는 또한 프레젠테이션 또는 패키징을 의미한다. 따라서, 품질 고객 서비스는 장기적인 성공을 보장하는, 계속해서 고객을 유지할 수 있는 가장 좋은 방법이다.

Each interaction with your customer has an impact on the success of your company.

6. Educating Employees Providing product education for your employees should be important to you in the coming year. The consumer today wants to be “super served,” meaning they want to be catered to and want to feel pampered. The best way to do that is to make sure your employees are courteous and knowledgeable of the items you sell in your store. Make sure you train your employees on customer service and define quality consumer service. What one person defines as quality consumer service may be completely different from another person’s definition of quality consumer service. Think of what quality means to you personally. There are some basic essential customs of consumer service which will build loyalty and grow your business. 1. Present yourself. Welcome your customer to your company, and allow them to know that you’re there to help them and who you might be. A smile, good eye contact, and cheerful disposition are key factors to folks concentrated on consumer service. 2. G ive your customers value. Not only are you supplying a merchandise, service, or business alternative to your own customers, but you are providing an experience that shows you take your customer’s time and business seriously. Your customer is the most important part of your operation. The customer gives you your occupation. Without them, you are not in business.


OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017

6. 직원 교육 새해에 오늘날 있다는 당신의 있는지

직원에게 제품에 대한 교육을 제공하는 것은 굉장히 중요하다. 소비자는 굉장히 많은 것을 제공받고 싶어하며 애지중지 하고 느낌을 받고 싶다는 것이다. 그렇게 유지하는 가장 좋은 방법은 직원들이 가게에서 얼마나 정중하고 판매 상품에 대해 지식이 확인하는 것이다. 당신이 여러분의 직원들에게 고객 서비스에 대해 확실히 가르칠 수 있는지, 품질 고객 서비스를 정의 내릴 수 있는지 분명히 해야 한다. 품질 고객 서비스를 정의 내릴 때 모든 사람의 관점이 똑같이 정의 내려 질 수는 없고 완전히 달라질 수 있는 것이다. 개인적으로 품질이 당신에게 무엇을 의미하는지 생각해보아라. 충성도를 구축하고 비즈니스를 성장시킬 고객 서비스의 기본 필수적인 몇 가지 관습이 있다.

1. 내 자신을 나타내라. 당신의 회사에 고객이 왔을 때, 따뜻하게 환영해주고, 내가 누구인지 간단한 소개와 언제나 고객들을 위해 당신이 옆에 있다는 것을 상기시켜야 한다. 따뜻한 미소, 부드러운 아이컨텍트, 쾌활한 말투는 사람들의 집중 시킬만한 핵심 요소이다. 2. 고객 가치를 제공하라. 뿐만 아니라 당신은 고객에게 상품, 서비스

Each interaction with your customer has an impact on the success of your company. It’s possible for you to provide value by making your customer your utmost priority, smiling, and making eye contact. 3. B e a good listener. By being a good listener, discover the things they already know about your services. You may be able enough to serve them by understanding what exactly your customers need. 4. Think about what other things your customer might want to have to attain their goal. Propose products that will meet that need and show attention to their concerns. 5. Establish your customers’ confidence. If your customer has come to you to create a purchase or to find out more information about one of your products or service and has researched many different products, acknowledge or compliment them for doing so. You might even learn some advice from them about similar products. Take some time to educate them when they have no idea about your products and commend them for doing their research before purchasing. 6. B uild trust by means of your customer. Seek help when necessary. Do not attempt to fake your way through the inquiry, should you not understand the solution to a customer’s question. Ask someone who might know the answer. Your customer would rather wait for the reply that is right than get a response based on a guess. 7. B e a role model of exceptional customer care. High-quality consumer service starts with you. Set a good example and teach others about good customer support in your day-to-day interactions. Make eye contact and smile at the individual you are doing business with. You’ll find it makes it hard for someone not to grin back. 8. Thank your customer for shopping with you. When you show your customer you care about their business and their needs, you can be certain that they’ll tell others about the service they received, and more people will want to do business with you. Understanding your customer and building a long term shopping relationship requires careful planning and execution. You must constantly add tools to your “tool box of knowledge” to assist you in providing the products and service your customer requires and demands. If your customer feels like you want and appreciate her shopping in your store, she will return and you will enjoy a long term shopping experience.

Imagine if you never got a new car…we all remember the tape deck auxiliary cord into the CD player days, and none of us miss that one bit! The times are moving forward and so should you and your tools. Thanks to social media, keeping up with the latest trends and tools is easier than ever. Just simply following @BarbershopConnect and @StylistShopConnect on Instagram will open the door to all of the newest trends happening in the barbershop, hair salon, and in the industry. A lot of us tend to develop the “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality and that works with a lot of things, but not your inventory. Although your equipment that you bought years ago may still work very well, tools do have a shelf life. Despite worrying signs that the men’s grooming category is suffering, manufacturers have increased their commitment to innovation and new product launches. Over the past two years, the US was the most active in terms of new product launches accounting for 21% of global We are now entering the new men’s grooming products cordless era powered by according to Datamonitor the highly efficient lithium Consumer’s Product Launch Analytics tool. ion rechargeable battery. We are now entering the cordless era powered by the highly efficient lithium ion rechargeable battery. Going cordless not only adds to the allure of the salon, but also is sure to make the stylist fall in love at first use! 2016 was the year men finally realized that products were a worthwhile investment! As reported by The Independent, many popular men’s product retailers have reported immense growth in sales in men’s grooming products as much as 300% in 2015. With over 52% of men considering their look to be important or very important, the industry is rapidly growing. Because of this shift in approach, it has been reported that 75% of males buy their own grooming products. In 2016 the Men’s grooming industry was estimated to garner $21 billion in revenue.

the biggest beneficiary, with salon visits coming second.” With men’s hair trends constantly evolving from season to season, men are searching the market for the best products to fit their needs. Message to all salons: Keeping your inventory up to date benefits the owner, the stylists, and the client. Everybody wins! One of the most exciting consequences from the recent growth in the cosmetology industry is the increase in new opportunities that were previously unavailable. One of the biggest opportunities being provided through this growth is the ability for more barbers/stylists to find work and open Salons. This is good for the economy as well as the entire cosmetology industry. With more barbers and hair cutting salons in business the competition increases, which in turn leads to higher quality service being provided to the customer. Also, with there being a growing focus on barbering and current hair styles from the public perspective, cosmetologists will be forced to be more innovative, and thereby help to shape and even create global styles. Another benefit we are seeing from growth in the industry is the increase of resources available to barbers

and stylists. With more demand for their services, barbers will be able to afford and stay up to date on all the latest hair cutting technology. Men and women’s skin is different in a handful of different ways. Example: men’s skin is 25% thicker, contains a noticeably higher collagen density, produces more sebum oil, and appears to be better hydrated, even without skin products. That’s why facials tailored specifically to men’s skin are a thing. Men’s facials are structured to the needs of men’s skin and usually deal with problems men commonly face, such as razor burn, sensitivity, dullness, and ingrown hairs. Some target skin that has been damaged by the elements like sun and wind, some target acne, and some target aging. Aestheticians deeply cleanse skin before exfoliating away dead skin cells, steaming open pores, performing extractions to clear individually clogged pores, and applying a toner. The facials may include a vigorous face, neck, and shoulder massage, and they often conclude with the application of a customized mask and men’s skincare products. So why aren’t men’s facials more of a thing? It is clear that men still have a ways to go to get to the point where they take advantage of self-improvement the way women do.

Manufacturer Profile

It may seem like “multicultural beauty” is a universal term with one meaning, but with hair it might not be the case. We recently spoke with Jane Carter of Jane Carter Solution, and she explained that “culture has little to do with hair type.” She clarified, “Hair is hair. It’s either straight, wavy, curly or coily. It’s either fine, medium or coarse in texture. If we market to consumers with that in mind, I think it would make their buying choices easier.” Read on to learn more about this company that believes “beauty is about feeling great from the inside out.” “다문화의 아름다움’ 이라고 하면, 마치 서로 화합된 표현처럼 들리지만, 헤어 카테고리에서는 그렇지 않다. 우리는 최근 제인 카터 솔루션의 제인 카터씨와 인터뷰를 하였고 그녀는 ‘문화는 헤어 타입과 거의 관련이 없다”고 설명했다. 그녀는 명확하게 ‘헤어는 헤어일 뿐이다.’라고 선을 그었다. 즉, 타입은 결국 직모, 웨이브, 컬리(곱슬) 또는 코일리 중 하나인 것이다. 모발의 질감도 얇은 모, 중간 모, 굵은 모로 나뉘어 지는 것이다. 만약 우리가 그러한 마인드로 시장에 진출한다면, 소비자들의 구매 선택을 더 쉽게 만들 것이라 생각한다.”

Jane Carter Founder and CEO


OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017

OTC Beauty Magazine (OTC): What is your background with both this company and the beauty business? What is your role with the company today? Jane Carter (JC): I was a salon owner and stylist for 20 years. I worked on Clairol’s national team as a hair color educator. As a result of being around products all the time, I developed an allergic reaction to many of the typical ingredients that are in many professional and consumer hair care products. As a hair colorist my client base was very diverse and consisted of many different hair types and textures. Between the chemical sensitivity and the inability to find a product line that would address the needs of all of my clients, I sought out a chemist to develop a more diverse line with cleaner ingredients. Many of the product samples that were sent to me to try by chemists contained the same ingredients that I was trying to avoid using. Probably the most amusing thing about the whole process that I learned was that all of the chemists were men; they had never spent any time in a salon environment and none of them had hair. I took an essential oil course and made my first product. We still sell it today. It’s called Hair Nourishing Serum. It’s 100% natural and can be used on all hair types and textures. As I traveled with Clairol, I met many stylists that fell in love with the product and wanted to purchase it. I also had several clients that wanted to purchase the product. I never really anticipated creating an entire product line; I just needed a few styling products with clean ingredients. Shortly after that, I studied formulation chemistry for three semesters and later became a member of The Society of Cosmetic Chemists. It was quite the experience. I began to understand things like, for instance, spritz sprays that were used in a lot of salons with a curling iron or flat iron for a firmer hold were alcohol based. I could not understand why a stylist would take the time to condition a client’s hair and then finish styling with a heat appliance using an alcohol-based spritz spray. I made a product called Natural Hold Spray Gel. Polymer is used for hold and is soluble in water or alcohol. It worked perfectly and achieved exactly what I was looking for. It provided hold, allowed us to turn down the temperature of our heat appliances, did not dry out the hair and did not cause the allergic reaction that an alcohol-based spray created. I stayed in the salon until the day-today demand of running and growing a company became very time-consuming. I still miss being in the salon to this day. OTC: Please share the history of Jane Carter Solution. How did this company come into existence and what is it founded on? JC: As I mentioned earlier, necessity is the mother of invention. A brand that addressed the needs of the entire range of hair types and textures, as well as had clean ingredients, was missing in the market. OTC: What differentiates your company and makes it stand out from similar businesses in the industry? JC: I think what makes us different is the fact that I am a stylist first, so I understand product performance. Second, as a product formulator, I understand the importance of using clean ingredients. They are kind to your body and the planet. Third, because my family is very diverse, I understand that a line should be developed with the entire range of hair textures in mind. I feel that it is my professional responsibility as a stylist and manufacturer to create products that are not necessarily segmented towards one specific hair type. I understand the market positioning, however to be a global brand I think it is important to not make the assumption that one ethnicity has the same hair care needs. I don’t believe in segmenting or limiting your

OTC 뷰티 매거진(OTC): 이 회사와 뷰티 사업에 대한 당신의 경력은 어떻게 되나요? 현재, 당신은 회사에서 어떠한 역할을 맡고 있나요? 제인 카터 (JC): 저는 20 년 동안 살롱 오너이자 스타일리스트였습니다. Clairol의 네셔널 팀에서 헤어 컬러 교육자로 경력을 쌓았습니다. 항상 제품들을 주위에서 사용해 본 결과, 일반적인 성분의 알레르기 반응이 많은 전문가와 소비자들의 헤어 케어 제품에서 나타나는 것을 발견했습니다. 헤어 컬러리스트로서 내 고객 기반은 매우 다양했고, 다양한 머리 유형과 머릿결을 소유하고 있었습니다. 화학 민감성과 저희 고객 분들이 원하는 제품 라인을 찾지 못하는 불능 속에서 내 고객의 모든 요구를 충족 할 제품 라인을 찾을 수 없다는 중에, 나는 청소기 재료와 함께 더욱 다양한 라인을 개발하는 약국을 찾았다. 많은 제품의 샘플은 나에게로 보내졌고 케미스트들 또한 내가 사용하지 않으려고 노력했던 같은 성분을 검사하고 있었다. 아마도 전체 과정에서 가장 재미있는 것은 화학자들이 모두 남자라는 사실이다. 그들은 살롱에서 시간을 보낸 적이 거의 없으며 대부분의 사람들이 대머리였다. 나는 에센셜 오일 수업을 듣고 나의 첫 번째 제품을 만들었다. 우리는 여전히 오늘도 판매하고 있다. 이 제품은 헤어 영양 세럼이라 불린다. 이는 100% 천연 제품이고 모든 헤어 타입 및 모질에 사용 가능하다. 내가 Clairol 출장 중 일때, 이 제품을 구입하고 싶어 사랑에 빠진 스타일리스트들을 많이 만났다. 또한 나는 이 제품을 구매하고 싶어하는 몇몇의 고객들을 만나기도 했다. 나는 예전까지도 전체 제품 라인을 만드는 것을 예상하지 못했었다. 단순히 깨끗한 순수재료가 원료로 들어간 몇 가지의 스타일링 제품이 필요했을 뿐이었다. 그 직후, 나는 3학기동안 화학 성분에 대해 공부를 했고, 화장품 화학자 협회(The society of cosmetic chemists)의 일원이 되었다. 그것은 상당히 가치가 큰 경험이 되었다. 예를 들어, 분출하는 스프레이는 미용실에서 많이 사용하는 컬링 아이언 또는 플랫 아이언과 알코올을 기반으로 하는 것으로 미처 몰랐던 많은 것을 이해하기 시작했다. 나는 처음에 왜 스타일리스트가 고객들의 머리를 컨디셔닝 해주는데 시간이 소요되고, 알코올 기반의 스프레이를 이용한 열 기기를 사용하여 스타일링을 마무리 하는 것에 대해 이해 할 수 없었다. 내츄럴 고정 스프레이 젤이라는 제품을 만들었다. 고분자는 고정을 할 때 사용되며 물이나




완벽하게 작동했고 내가 찾고 있던 목표에 일치했다. 이는 알레르기 반응을 유발하지 않을뿐더러, 뜨거운 열 제품을 써서 온도를 높이지도 않아도 되며 정확하게 스타일을 유지시켜주었기 때문에 마침내 알코올 베이스의 Natural Hold SprayGel이라는 이름의 스프레이가 개발되었다. 일의 수요가 매우 많아 많은 시간을 살롱에서 지내곤 했다. 나는 여전히 살롱에 있던 것이 요즘 그립기도 하다. OTC: 제인 카터 솔루션의 역사를 공유해주시겠어요? 어떻게 이 회사가 태어났으며 무엇이 설립되게 한 큰 이유인가요? JC: 제가 앞서 언급 한 바와 같이, 필요는 발명의 어머니입니다. 그때 당시 전 범위의 헤어 타입, 모질 뿐만 아니라 깨끗한 원료를 필요로 하는 브랜드는 시장에서 찾을 수 없었습니다. OTC: 귀하의 기업의 차별화 전략은 무엇이며 이 뷰티 업계에서 비슷한 비즈니스에서 눈에 띄는 점은 무엇인가요? JC: 내가 생각하기에 우리가 다른 기업들과 차별화된 점은 우선 내가 스타일리스트이며, 제품의 성능을 잘 이해한다는 것이라고 생각합니다. 둘째, 제품 제조자로써, 깨끗하고 순수 원료를 사용하는 것의 중요성을 이해하고 있다. 그 원료들은 당신의 몸에 절대 해롭지 않으며 이 행성(지구)에도 이롭다. 셋째로, 우리 가족은 굉장히 다양하다. 그러므로 나는 모든 범위를 아우를 수 있는 제품 라인이 개발되어야 했음을 깨달았다. 하나의 특정한 구체적 헤어 타입을 설정할 필요 없이 상품을 개발한 스타일리스트 및 제조업자인 나의 직업으로써의 OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017


Manufacturer Profile consumer based on an ethnic bias. In America, for instance, the 2010 census confirmed that the US is a melting pot that keeps evolving and will continue to be that. OTC: What need does this company meet among the OTC customer base? JC: I think that the need we meet is the fact that the customer base has a wide range of choices when selecting products. I think that the OTC store has become the destination spot for a lot of consumers because of the wide range of product offerings. OTC: If you had to pick one product that is most symbolic of your company, which would you choose and why? JC: One of the first products that I made is called Nourish & Shine. It is still one of our top sellers today. It was my answer to the replacement of the typical petroleum based product. This product is great because it can be used on your hair and skin. OTC: Please describe the newest product, innovation or concept this company has developed. JC: Our newest innovation is Curls To Go. The line was created for super curly and coiled textures. The formulas contain high performance natural ingredients essential to nourish and hydrate curly hair…butters, essential oils, vitamins, plant and herbal extracts that deliver instant and long-term benefits. They are free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, paraffin, mineral oil, phthalates and DEA/MEA/TEA. They are easy to use, multi-benefit products that work together to “wake up” natural curls and deliver healthy, gorgeous, long-lasting, frizz free curls every time!

책임이라고 생각한다. 마켓 포지셔닝을 이해했지만 글로벌 브랜드가 되기 위해서는 하나의 민족이 오직 하나의 같은 헤어 케어 요구를 필요로 한다는 가정을 버려야 한다고 생각한다. 나는 절대 인종에 따라 제품 및 소비자를 국한시키지 않는다. 예를 들어 미국에서는 2010년 인구 조사 시, 미국이 끊임없이 진화하고 변화할 용광로라는 것임을 확인했다. OTC: OTC 고객 기반 중 무엇을 충족해야 할까요? JC: 고객을 기반으로 그들이 물건을 고를 때 다양한 범위의 선택이라면 그들의 요구를 쉽게 충족시킬 수 있다고 생각한다. OTC: 만약 당신의 회사의 제품 중 가장 상징적인 제품을 하나만 선택해야 한다면, 어떤 것이고 이유는 무엇인가? JC: 내가 최초로 만들었던 제품인 Nourish&Shine 이라는 제품이다. 그 제품은 아직도 우리의 베스트 셀러 중 하나다. 그 제품은 일반 석유 기반의 제품을 교체 할 수 있는 나의 핵심 포인트였다. 이는 심지어 당신의 헤어 및 피부에도 사용할 수 있기 때문에 굉장히 좋다. OTC: 최근 귀하의 회사가 개발한 최신 제품, 혁신적인 특징 또는 컨셉에 대해 설명해주세요. JC: 자사의 최신 혁신은 Curls To Go이다. 이 라인은 곱슬기가 정말 심하거나 코일 모질을 가진 고객들을 위해 만들어졌다. 이 성분에는 영양을 공급해주고 곱슬머리의 수분을 주는 고성능의 천연 성분이 함유되어있다. 버터, 에센셜 오일, 비타민, 식물, 허브 추출물 등의 장기적인 베네핏을 주는 원료들이 많이 포함되어있다. 이 제품은 황산염, 파라벤, 실리콘, 미네랄 오일, 프탈레이트 및 DEA/MEA/TEA가 들어있지 않다. 사용하기도 훨씬 편하며 ‘WAKE UP’ 내츄럴 컬 제품과 함께 사용할 때 다양한 이점이 있다. 뿐만 아니라 건강하고, 오래

OTC: How do you keep consumers and store owners educated on product releases, uses and general information? Do you utilize your website and/or social media channels regularly? JC: We use an integrated approach to reaching our customers. Social and local efforts will lead the charge to inform, samples, and offer instruction. OTC: What trend have you seen grow the most recently in your sector of the beauty business and how has the company met consumer demand for it? JC: Needless to say, the natural hair and ingredient trends continue to set the tone for the industry. We were ahead of the trend, having sold our first natural product at salons in 1992. We will continue to create products that are good for the hair.

유지되는 모발을 자랑하게 된다. OTC: 귀하는 소비자와 점주 분 모두에게 어떤 식으로 사용법, 제품 출시, 일반적 정보를 알려드리나요? 당신은 정기적으로 웹 사이트 및 / 또는 소셜 미디어 채널을 활용하십니까? JC: 우리는 고객들에게 도달하기 위하여 통합된 접근 방식을 사용한다. 사회와 지역적 노력은 정보, 샘플 및 제공에 관한 설명을 이끈다. OTC: 귀하가 봤던 동종업계의 최근 가장 성장한 트렌드는 무엇이며 귀사는 어떻게 소비자의 수요를 충족시켰나요? JC: 말할 필요도 없이, 자연스러운 스타일의 헤어와 천연 성분이란 트렌드는 이 뷰티 헤어 산업에 개념을 확실히 정립했다. 우리는 트렌드를 앞서나가 살롱에서 자사의 첫 번째 내츄럴 제품을 1992년에 선보였다. 우리는 계속해서 머릿결에 좋은 성분으로 제품을 만들 것입니다.


OTC Beauty Magazine February 2017

OTC: What tips do you have for OTC beauty supply storeowners on how to best market your products to consumers? JC: Continue to be the channel of plentiful assortment and variety, to edge the competition. OTC: Does this company participate in any trade shows throughout the year? If so, which ones, and why do you find these helpful for both manufacturing companies and visitors? JC: Local, on the ground efforts are important to engage the customer. We use a careful process when selecting shows, but look to the ones that best attract our customers and give us an opportunity to inform and interact with them.

OTC: OTC 뷰티 유통업체 점주 분들을 위해 시장 및 고객들과 관련하여 조언을 해주신다면 한마디 부탁 드리겠습니다. JC: 경쟁 가장자리에서 풍부하고 다양한 채널을 계속 이어가세요. OTC: 귀하의 회사는 일년 내내 모든 무역 박람회에 참여합니까? 그렇다면, 어떤 박람회에 참여하며, 제조 기업과 방문객들에게 도움이 될만한 이러한 것들을 찾으시는 이유가 무엇인가요? JC: 기본적인 노력이자 가장 관건은 고객과 소통하는 것으로써 이는 굉장히 중요하다. 우리는 신중한 과정을 거쳐 쇼(전시회/박람회)를 선택하지만, 우리 고객들의 관심을 가장 끌만한 것을 선정하되 그들과 상호작용할 수 있는 기회를 제공하는 곳을 찾는다. OTC: 2017년, 회사의 목표는

OTC: What are the company’s goals for the 2017? Any big news or plans you can share? JC: Curls To Go is our biggest news in 2017. We are excited and are celebrating with tremendous deals and programs to our customers, and engaging advertising and social efforts to reach the consumer. OTC: What final thoughts would you like to share with OTC readers about Jane Carter Solution and/or the beauty industry in general? JC: I have always been passionate about marrying the professional salon industry. I think that salons are still segregated in services, which can limit their customer base as well as their potential revenue stream. I think that all stylists should have the opportunity and the knowledge to service any customer that walks through the door. I have done training in many beauty schools and I know that stylists are passionate people. They do what they do because they love it. Certainly our customer base is women with hair that they perceive to be problematic. Our job is to provide the solution. Our job as a brand is to make their haircare and styling needs simple, no matter what their hair texture may be. I also feel that the DNA of a brand is consistent with the DNA of the founder and should be consistently translated through the DNA of your company’s core values. We are here to serve. That may be doing a great job by creating great products for our customers, or donating products to shelters around the world. Beauty is not about being pretty. Beauty is about feeling great from the inside out. That is our goal and responsibility as a brand.

New Year, New Tools, New Prices! by Kenny Duncan

Most hair professionals struggle with the idea of raising their prices, asking themselves, “How do I tell my clients?” and “Do I deserve it?” The truth is that most people have had similar thoughts so, in the back of their mind, clients know a price increase is reasonable. Hair professionals can raise their rates because they invest in new tools and a new year is the perfect time for this.

While guiding your customers to the proper tools,

take the opportunity to explain some of the benefits in purchasing a quality item. Using a tool like the Andis Supra ZR™, along with a full set of detachable blades, will lead to faster and better quality haircuts. With better quality comes the ability to charge a higher price and faster cutting times means you can increase client turnover on any given day— two simple ways to increase your daily service dollars. It’s also important to mention service upgrades that will leave clients focusing on the higher end service experience rather than the increased price. These options could be a complimentary hot towel or eye brow trim. By explaining that the end benefit of purchasing a higher quality tool is a price increase, this will strengthen your store’s relationship with a valuable customer by showing them that you care about their business.

Because an informed client is a better client, each time

I raise my prices I personally hand a letter to my clients explaining what my new rate will be the next time they come in and offer a one-time discount. I also make sure to mention the continuing education I received and the new Andis tools I invested in, thus warranting a price increase. Over the years, I progressed from using the Andis Master® as my strongest clipper - Andis Excel - Andis BGRC® - Andis BGR+® - Andis MVP - Andis Excel Ultra™ – now onto the Andis Supra ZR. This is one of the tactics that has led me to reach my goal of becoming a six-figure barber and can lead others there too!

THERAPY TRENDS Brushing Up on Beauty Tools by Elayne McClaine

There is a brush for every purpose. Sophisticated OTC consumers are using brushes to cleanse, invigorate, detangle, conceal and style. As consumers mimic the tools used by professional hairstylists, makeup artists and manicurists, they are brushing up on the need for task-specific brushes. Brushes are the ultimate beauty tool. Many beauty regimens require a brushing tool as an applicator or enhancer for hair, skin, nail and facial products. Recent electronic and digital innovations are technically brushes. Penetration or stimulation therapies for face and hair are rooted in the use of a brushing mechanism. There is a new detangling concept that involves a sculpted, vertical brush that smooths tussled or knotted hair. Manual manipulation of a cone-shaped brush that moves through hair sideways rather than down and out conceptually provides less ripping, tearing and breakage. Beauty tools and implements are essential to the average consumer. Brushing up on the latest tools will profit the OTC. While makeup is a traditional category, the brush industry is stimulating growth and multiple purchases. Foundation application now requires several brushes—a kabuki brush, a concealer brush and a contouring brush. Eye makeup application now requires a shadow brush, liner brush, brow brush as well as mascara. Lip and blush applications also require new brush concepts. Sable, pony or goat hairs are used to define quality while many consumers prefer synthetic micro cut fibers. Consumers want to travel with their brushes, clean their brushes and organize their brushes. Some market analysts link the increase in brush sales with the many new uses and accessories that support the various types of brushes. Price points are increasing as the promise associated with the brush is defined. Consumers find value in the brush sets or professional pouches. Brushes and other beauty tools support product purchases throughout the beauty business, one stroke at a time.

From Father to Son by Dwayne Thompson

One of the first and last impressions you can leave on a women is your scent. This is why it is so important to groom and bathe yourself every day and take care to get a manicure and pedicure once monthly. Personally, I like to take a shower or bath and brush my teeth at least 3 times daily. Wearing clean clothes and undergarments are paramount, next to washing your body and applying deodorant, lotions or aftershave. Be careful not to mix too many scents or fragrances when developing your daily regimen. This leads me to the final step before walking out of the house…choosing a cologne that is timeless and one that will match your natural body oils, lifestyle or occasion you have dressed for whether day or night. I will provide you with a few tips and a cologne option for 2017. Fragrance is an invisible part of our personal style, and it has a powerful effect on how people see and remember you. Most men who use colognes and perfumes do so because they had a father or role model who introduced them to the practice. Dad’s Old Spice or Brut is not an option. Those who stumble upon the practice fail to understand the importance and the purpose. Did you know that wearing a fragrance will make you more attractive to women? In choosing a mate, smell is of high importance for many women. A nice fragrance adds to your overall impression of being a sharp, well put-together man. Choosing a fragrance should always be done by you and you alone. Remember you are trying to match your natural body scent and find a cologne to enhance your scent. Smell is actually our strongest sense. It is connected to our memory and can develop deep connections to our emotions. Here are a few cologne tips: 1. Start light: Put one spray on warm body parts. 2. Less is more: Don’t drown yourself in a fragrance. 3. Do not apply to clothing: You want to mix fragrance with your natural body oils, and this can possibly stain clothing. 4. Apply to dry skin: Apply after a shower while you are completely dry. 5. Don’t kill the note: Rubbing a scent into your skin breaks the molecular bond, making the scent weaker. I have personally been wearing a niche brand called “Creed,” and it has taken some time for me to find the right fragrance for my natural body oil, which is Aventus and Green Irish Tweed. Visit to learn more about the brand, the rich history and use the scent finder on the site. Keep up the good work!

Industry News Wahl Global Headquarters Museum Opens Door to History and Commemorates 100 Years of Innovation, Style and Hair

100 years: a time to look back in order to move forward. Wahl Professional celebrates their upcoming 100-year anniversary by opening the doors to their history and timeless style in the new Wahl museum. The Wahl Global Headquarters Museum opened in May 2016, in advance of the company’s “2019” milestone, with a special look at Wahl’s history and roots in the beauty and barbering industry. Recent office upgrades prompted the Wahl team to showcase their journey as the leading clipper and trimmer manufacturer, along with the path Wahl is paving for the future. “Now that we are approaching our 100-year anniversary and built a new addition to our offices, we thought it was time to properly display and organize our past,” says Lance Wahl, Global Vice President Professional Products, Wahl Clipper Corporation. The vintage-inspired, classically styled museum pays homage to the rich history of barbering and how Wahl has helped shape it. “Since Wahl created the clipper category, it’s important to show proper credence to the very beginning and what the initial innovation has accomplished,” says Wahl. “The museum also highlights all the products we have created outside of clippers and trimmers. The exhibits remind us of all the experiments we at Wahl have tried and motivate us to go further.” The museum allows visitors to learn more about the beauty and barbering history and see how the industry is advancing. “You can take a tour through 97 years of history and check out the innovative products that Wahl has released through the years. You can also see a sample of the first electromagnetic massager that founder Leo Wahl built in 1914—which inspired him to build an electromagnetic powered clipper,” says Aaron Flick,

Marketing Associate at Wahl Clipper Corporation. “There’s also a feature where visitors can see where Wahl is located around the world, even in outer space!” This is all in addition to the history of the Wahl family. One of the museum’s spotlight exhibits showcases Wahl’s timeline of innovation and displays actual archived products. In addition, a continuous feed of classic commercials and video content streams for visitors to watch at any time. “My favorite part of the Wahl museum is the timeline of Wahl tools,” says Flick. “It’s pretty neat to see how far Wahl has come and how much innovation has come through the building. I also enjoy the retro barber chair on full display that is occasionally used for community charity events." The Wahl museum offers a retrospective view of Wahl’s history and most popular and innovative products. Style and trends may change, but quality is timeless—and Wahl delivers just that. Visitors can take a tour of the Wahl Global Headquarters Museum at 2900 North Locust Street in Sterling, Illinois, located 100 miles west of Chicago. The Wahl Museum hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 am – 5 pm.

Industry News The Tools Every Stylist Needs for Spring One of the most exciting things about a new season is the new trending hairstyles that come with it. From wavy, wet looks to sleek, straight cuts, we have a lot of look forward to this spring! Thankfully, Fromm Beauty has all of the tools stylists will need to create beautiful, glammed out looks. 1907 by Fromm is thrilled to introduce a line of innovative, multi-use brushes thoughtfully designed to offer stylists the highest quality selection of tools season after season. Each 1907 by Fromm brush outlined below features bristles and barrels that are anti-static, heat-safe and equipped with ionic nylon pins to fight frizz, decrease drying time and enhance hair health.

1907 by Fromm Hot Paddle Brush: This brush is designed to specifically enhance the blow drying experience. The Hot Paddle Brush features a thermal soothing plate with an aluminum pad that retains heat, reducing drying time by 10 minutes. Along with its rounded surface designed to give perfectly smooth volume from the root, this brush is perfect for creating those straight, polished looks.

Dark and Lovely Brand Ambassador Justine Skye Donates Toys to Brooklyn Kids

1907 by Fromm Square Thermal Brush: This brush excels in offering multiple styling options with just a tilt of the barrel. Its square shape allows stylists to create smooth, voluminous looks by holding the barrel flat against strands; wavy, natural looks by tilting it at an angle; and glamorous curls by fully rotating the barrel while styling.

1907 by Fromm Copper Core Brush: This thermal rounder is the only brush on the market with a 100 percent copper barrel. This unique feature has antimicrobial properties that destroy over 80 percent of bacteria and fungus, helping to eliminate dandruff, itching and flaking—common springtime nightmares as hat season comes to an end. Additionally, the copper core provides superior temperature control to evenly heat hair faster, and with the brush’s handcrafted boar bristles, stylists can achieve a frizz-free finish in no time!

This past holiday season, R&B singer and newly announced Dark and Lovely Brand Ambassador, Justine Skye stopped by the Wynn Center - Police Athletic League in Brooklyn, NY to surprise children and donate over 100 toys to the after-school program. Justine welcomed the children in attendance—ages ranging from 6 to12 years old—and shared her excitement to kick off the holiday season with them, especially since she was a Brooklyn kid just like them. The children then presented hand written “thank you” cards after a quick dance performance for Justine and the Dark and Lovely team. “It’s the season to give away lots of toys,” says Justine Skye. “I just want to thank Dark and Lovely for teaming up with me to make the little ones smile!” Photo credit: Pete Monsanto of Fly Life Images

Industry News on demonstrations. The in-cosmetics Global Workshop program will focus on the industry’s most important topics. Speakers will present crucial scientific and regulatory updates relevant to personal care professionals and topics will cover sustainability, pollution and EU cosmetics claims regulation, among others. Nadine Lavable, Processing Engineer at L’Oreal, attended the incosmetics Workshop program in Paris. Commenting on the value of the sessions, she said: “The Workshops were very useful and taught me a lot about the nutrients used in cosmetics, as well as issues with certain preservatives. The details are extremely useful for those responsible for developing new products.” Also at the exhibition will be the popular Sensory Bar, which houses a ‘tryout’ area where visitors can test innovative textures and new sensations. Country pavilions will also be a key part of the exhibition. With areas dedicated to Spain, Brazil, France, Korea and North America, attendees will be presented with the latest developments in the personal care and cosmetic industry from around the globe.

Countdown to in-cosmetics Global begins The leading personal care ingredients event reveals a focus on makeup and sustainability at its Global event in London this April Following its biggest-ever edition in Paris last year, the in-cosmetics Global event will return to London for the first time in 15 years. More than 9,000 visitors are expected to travel to the UK from more than 100 countries when the event opens on April 4. Over three days, the personal care industry’s leading event will provide a one-stop-shop for manufacturers to do business. R&D professionals will be able to network with suppliers and source innovative ingredients, while learning about the latest consumer trends and technical information. Among the visitors that attended the 2016 Global event in Paris were GlaxoSmithKline, Beiersdorf AG, Clarins, Colgate, Procter & Gamble and L’Oreal. Speaking about the show Dr. Kerstin Meyer-Lipp, R&D Section Head, Proctor & Gamble, said: “The show was great—really inspiring. I made a lot of new connections

and loved the Sensory Bar and Formulation Lab features. I thought both were definitely experiences worth repeating and the trend presentations were great as well so I think visiting was time well-invested and I look forward to the next installment.” Nirmita Sheth, Senior Product Development Chemist at L’Oreal The Body Shop, added: “This year’s show was a fantastically organized event, very informative and the high caliber of visitors and diverse range of exhibitors made it a very worthwhile show for us to attend.” Around 800 international suppliers will showcase their latest ingredients at ExCeL, London from April 4-6, 2017. They will be complemented by an exciting educational program, featuring prominent speakers from across the globe.

category in the cosmetic market1 and growing demand for color cosmetics, the 2017 edition will see the launch of the Make-up Bar.

Finished product manufacturers can explore the ingredients helping to deliver captivating and trendsetting color cosmetics products. Sustainability in the Spotlight Another new feature will be the highly relevant Sustainability Corner—designed to showcase leading environmental and social sustainability initiatives. Climate change, diminishing resources and globalization are pushing the cosmetic industry to profoundly change the way it operates. The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were ratified in September 2015 and goal 12 is to “ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.” This represents a direct call to the cosmetics industry to act now. Leading suppliers will share the ways they have developed or reformulated an ingredient or product to be more sustainable. A series of presentations will take place during the event, enabling visitors to debate key issues and learn how the industry is working towards achieving the UN SDGs targets.

Product Spotlight Dark and Lovely® Introduces

No-Ammonia Hair Color that Feels as Good as it Looks with

New COLOR-GLOSS Ultra Radiant Color Crème Hair color infused with natural shea butter, coconut oil and pomegranate that protects curls and shines through

Dark and Lovely® is proud to offer the #1 hair color designed for women of color. Dark and Lovely’s new Color-Gloss Ultra Radiant Color Crème collection features their first no ammonia, shine-infusing conditioning hair color that provides natural looking results while delivering a gorgeous, glossy shine.

The nourishing formula deeply conditions to provide softness,

leaving hair feeling as good as it looks. It also protects hair of all textures—from naturally curly to relaxed—from damage while delivering beautiful, radiant color. Infused with three key ingredients, Dark and Lovely COLOR-GLOSS collection includes:

• Shea Butter: Has been used for centuries to soothe dry, itchy scalp and dandruff on African hair. It absorbs easily into the scalp and provides moisture from roots to ends.

• Coconut Oil: One of the most powerful oils in the world. It is high in vitamin E and other nutrients, resulting in stronger roots and thicker, shiner, healthier hair.

• Pomegranate Seed Oil: Revitalizes hair leaving it looking thick and shiny. It acts as a great protector against chemicals and other environmental damage. Naturalistas shouldn’t fear coloring as COLOR-GLOSS hair color was made with natural hair in mind. Integrity of the natural curl pattern is important to this consumer and COLOR-GLOSS has nourishing ingredients that help to retain moisture in hair, allowing curls to bounce back. Dark and Lovely COLOR-GLOSS is available in six natural hair color shades including: Golden Brown, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Medium Red Brown, Natural Black and Rich Black. One application lasts up to 28 shampoos and works for all hair types.
