3. Feel the Attraction

The long lasting, quality magnets on the back will not wear out and the NanoSilver technology with anti-bacterial properties keeps things clean.

Say “So Long” to Thinning Hair Instantly fill in thinning areas of hair with Fill-In Powder for Men, a product that matches natural colors perfectly leaving a natural looking head of hair. Formulated with Procapil™ it works to help promote growth and prevent hair loss. This effective concealer is rain and sweat proof and won’t run, streak or rub off, yet it washes out when hair is shampooed normally.

Metallic Purple Add a little glimmer to lashes with Amazing Shine’s Fashion Lash in metallic purple. Whether attending an event where having statement lashes is appropriate or simply wanting to have fun, give these creative additions a try.

Bright Green It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but the vivid neon green color of the bottle set Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula™ with Vitamin E Body Lotion in this month’s Marketplace. It has the power to transform skin as Extra Virgin Olive Oil takes care of it in multiple ways: provides moisture, antioxidants keep skin youthful, smoothes skin on contact and an Anti Aging Peptide Complex helps increase firmness and elasticity.

Color Maintenance When altering the color of hair it’s important to keep it nourished and healthy. Use L’Oreal Technique’s Post-Color Treatment immediately following haircolor application to condition and help detangle. It also strengthens and repairs internal hair fiber. Preserve the vibrancy of color-treated hair.

Chemical Free According to Spilo, “out of the ancient past comes the secret of coloring hair with plants and water, without chemicals.” Following this method, Colora Henna Powder will not penetrate hair or change its structure, but wrap each strand and boost volume. All of the available shades are natural and organic, contain no chemicals and allow the user’s natural hair color to enhance the final look.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

Hair Color! Changing the color of one’s hair is a difficult decision and a major transformation for many of your customers. Not only is it tough to choose the right shade of color—hazelnut, dark brown and light brown, they all look so similar—but choosing the right type of dye makes the product choice even harder. Learn how to best assist your customers with this purchase process.

What is your advice to store owners on how to best aid customers in choosing the right hair dying product? What kinds of color formulas are best for each type of hair (natural, relaxed, dry and damaged, healthy, heat treated, etc.)? “The best way to guide your customers to the right type of haircolor is by asking them the appropriate questions about their hair. A great place to start is by asking what their target color or desired shade is. This way you can see if they’re trying to go lighter or darker. Next, ask them if they have had any chemical services, such as permanent color, semi permanent color, relaxer, or both. If the customer has had a relaxer and is concerned about compromising the condition of their hair, recommend an ammonia and peroxide free formula that allows them to relax and boost color in the same day without damage. (For example: Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color or Beautiful Collection Advanced Gray Solution, if they have grays) If your customer’s hair is in fair condition and is looking to go lighter, recommend a conditioning permanent color (like Textures and Tones). The luxurious, moisture-rich formula is safe enough to use on relaxed hair as long as they wait one week and one shampoo after relaxing. When they need color for a root touch up, recommend they use Textures and Tones on the re-growth area, but they can safely revive the ends with Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color. This way they get all the color and shine while keeping their hair healthy and conditioned. What more can you ask for?!”

어떻게 판매할 것인가? 이 달의 판매 초점은 ...

헤어 컬러입니다! 헤어 컬러를 바꾼다는 것은 당신의 고객들 대부분에게는 어려운 결정이며 중요한 변화입니다. 잘 어울리는 색조를 선택하는 것이 어려울 뿐 아니라 - 헤이즐넛, 암갈색, 밝은 갈색, 모두 비슷해보인다 각자에게 맞는 염색 방법을 선택하는 것은 제품 선택을 더욱 어렵게 만듭니다. 지금부터 고객들에게 제품 과정에 관한 최선의 도움은 무엇인지 알아보겠습니다.

소비자들이 헤어 염색 제품을 제대로 선택하는데 최선의 도움이 될 수 있는 방법을 매장 운영자들에게 조언한다면 무엇이 있을까? 각 헤어 타입(생머리, 릴렉서를 사용한 모발, 건조하고 손상된 모발, 건강한 모발, 열처리한 모발 등등)에 가장 적합한 컬러 성분 종류는 무엇인가? “고객들에게 가장 적합한 헤어 컬러를 안내할 수 있는 최선의 방법은 그들의 모발에 관해 적절한 질문을 하는 것입니다. 우선 그들이 목표하는 색상이나 원하는 색조를 물어보는 것으로 질문을 시작하는 것이 좋습니다. 이렇게 하면 그들이 현재 헤어 컬러보다 진해지려는지 밝아지려는지를 알 수가 있습니다. 다음으로, 영구적인 염색이나 반영구적인 염색, 릴렉서 등등 화학적인 손질을 한 적이 있는지 물어보세요. 만일 고객이 릴렉서를 사용한 적이 있고 모발 상태의 손상을 염려하고 있다면, 암모니아와 과산화수소가 첨가되지 않은 제품을 사용하는 것이 좋습니다. 이런 성분의 제품은 모발에 휴식을 제공하는 동시에 모발의 손상없이 염색을 촉진시켜 줍니다. (예를 들어: 고객들이 흰머리가 있다면, Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color or Beautiful Collection Advanced Gray Solution이 좋습니다.) 고객의 모발 상태가 양호하고 좀 더 밝은 색상으로 바꾸길 원한다면, 컨디셔닝 퍼머넌트 컬러(Textures and Tones과 같은)를 권해보세요. 고급스럽고 수분이 풍부한 성분은 릴렉서를 사용한 지 최소 일주일이 지나고 샴푸를 한번 이상 한 경우에는 충분히 안전하게 사용할 수 있습니다. 고객들이 모근 주변의 터치업을 원하는 경우에는, 모발이 자라나는 부분에Textures and Tones 를 사용하도록 권해보세요. 물론 Beautiful Collection Moisturizing Color로 모발의 끝부분에도 안전하게 활력을 줄 수가 있습니다. 이렇게 하면 그들은 건강하고 부드러운 모발을 유지하는 동시에 컬러와 광택을 모두 얻을 수가 있게 됩니다. 더 필요한 것이 있나요?!” Lindsay Perez, Franchise Education Manager Clairol Professional 이 문제에 관해 여러분의 의견을 공유하고 싶은 분들은, hmcneal@otcbeautymagazine.com로 이메일 보내주세요. 여러분의 의견은 5월호에 게재됩니다!

According to history, lipstick was invented and worn by Ancient Mesopotamian women. It is said they crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their lips. Lipstick has been defined as a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips. As the years passed, it was later noted that an Arab male cosmetologist invented the solid lipstick as we know it today. These were perfumed sticks pressed in special molds. April 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine


Finished Product During the reign of Queen Elizabeth, bright red colors started to emerge and gain popularity, according to history. Lipstick during this time was mostly worn by upper class women and male actors who needed to wear makeup during performances. These lipsticks were compiled of beeswax and red stains from plants. The application of lipstick varied during this time. People were still experimenting and everyone didn’t have the privilege to wear it. During the 19th century, lipstick was commonly applied with a brush. The solid formation and the tubes did not gain popularity until the 20th and 21st centuries. During these years, dark red had become a very popular color, but during the 20th century color selection was still very limited. The shades of lipsticks being produced were not overwhelming in color selections. Similar to today, people watched celebrities and followed trends.

Many Shades of Beauty Two leading ladies in Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor, assisted in making sure dark red lipstick become a big hit with women throughout the United States and abroad. These actresses were known for their carefully aligned lips oozing deep red in color, and women all over followed the trend. In the 80s, mood lipstick became popular. I remember purchasing a green tube of lipstick, applying it and watching it turn a color on my lips. The concept behind mood lipstick was that it changed with skin’s pH (Potential Hydrogen). In the 90s earth tones became popular and shades of brown broke into the marketplace. Later during the 21st century, pearl shades became popular. Women started mixing and matching colors, and lighter shades often adorned the inside of the lips while darker shades were used to outline. This trend was popular for some time and often seen by “punk-rockers and valley girls,” and like other trends it soon faded. Today, there is quite a selection of colors to choose from. Lipsticks can be found in bright red, orange, pink, gold, copper and even dark colors such as purple. Lipsticks come as creams, solids and even glosses. The creams are often found on a pallet or as part of a makeup kit, and most are still applied with a brush. Solid lipsticks are often found in a tube and lip colored gloss is usually found in a different kind of tube that contains an applicator brush. Lipsticks can be glossy in appearance or matte in formulation. Glossy lipsticks give a shiny appearance whereas

matte lipsticks give a more subtle finish. In some situations matte finish gives the illusion of being “barely there” on the lips with no shine. Both are really popular and are used by makeup artists and consumers everywhere.

Product Specifics Lipsticks are packaged in plastic or ornate metal dispensers. The sizes are not uniform as different manufactures use different designs. The common tube size is three inches in length and half an inch in diameter. Most come in two parts—a cover and a base—with two components of twisting and sliding for application purposes. The movement of the tubes allows the lipstick to be pushed up for application. Most lipsticks are packaged in bulk, but in some cases they are individually packed. All lipsticks sold must meet the standards of the Food and Drug Administration. Many of them have some element of fragrance added to give it a delightful smell and they are safe enough to be ingested. The future of lipstick is very bright and it is sure to be around for a very long time. Lipsticks are inexpensive (some as low as 99 cents a tube) and they are purchased by consumers of all ethnic groups, making it a global item. There is no accurate recording of lipstick sales today because the market is consistently expanding and the cost, in most cases, remains steady. The designers are becoming more creative with the styles of tubes, keeping the consumers excited and motivated to buy. New shades are being introduced into the marketplace and the formulas are being modified over and over.

Lipstick of Today Lipsticks have come a long way since its invention. Today they: are longer lasting, many will not stain clothes, contain primers that enhance wearing longevity, include a lip moisturizer, and may even have a gloss included within the same tube. The market is continually expanding. Celebrities are even being recruited to endorse different brands and even come up with their own lines. For example, Nicki Minaj has a lipstick with MAC Cosmetics entitled “Pink Friday,” and last year this particular color was a top seller. Although many companies are using celebrities to endorse products, the cost is staying moderate. The market will continue to be strong and I think it is safe to say that the future of lipstick is as bright as the brightest red tube!

in Regards to

Professional Hair Coloring 전문 헤어 컬러링에 관한 추가 정보 Can hair color help grow hair?

The reason that people believe that perms, relaxers, and hair colors help to grow the hair is because in such services there is a very clear and defined line of demarcation when the new growth appears. They can now actually see the new natural growth as distinguished from the treated hair. However, if they measure the length of the hair they will discover that it is the same length or shorter then before. Chemical services such as those mentioned above actually weaken hair, not make it stronger, so hair growth is not one of their advantages. If they did aid in promoting and stimulating hair growth, then the manufactures would proudly say so in their advertising. 34

Why does virgin Afro hair take longer to process permanent color?

Permanent hair color on Afro hair is performed somewhat differently than on most other cultures, the reason being that Afro hair has twice as many overlapping cuticles than most straight hair. This is because when

머리보다 표피가 두 배 이상 중복되어 있기 때문이다. 순수한 흑인 모발을 단단한 컬이나 곱슬한 스타일로 잡아당길 때, 표피 층이 표피를 한 번 더 지지하게 되고, 결과적으로 이런 모발 형 태는 같은 크기의 모간 내에 두 배 이상의 표피층이 중복되게 되는 것이다. April 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine


K-t-K natural Afro hair draws up into a tight curl or kink the cuticle layers back up into the cuticle, resulting in this type of hair having twice as many overlapping cuticles in any given area of the hair shaft. When permanent color formulation is applied to natural Afro hair, the color takes longer to penetrate. The directions for applying color on the box is to process for about 45 minutes. However on natural virgin Afro hair it has to process for one hour or more due to twice as many cuticle layers it has to penetrate. Relaxed hair will process in about 25 to 30 minutes due to cuticle resistance because the relaxer product and procedure will remove up to one-third of the cuticles. The remaining cuticles will be left in a porous state. For more information on this subject see last month’s article, “How to Permanently and Safely Color Relaxed Hair.”

염색약을 순수한 흑인

모발에 적용할 경우, 컬러가 모발 내로 침투하는데 더 긴 시간이 걸린다. 사용설명서에 는 45분 정도 소요된다고 하지 만, 실제로 순수한 흑인 모발 에는 두 배 이상 많은 표피층 을 컬러가 뚫고 들어가는데 1 시간이나 그 이상이 소요된다. 릴렉서가 사용된 모발은 릴렉 서나 이러한 손질이 표피의 1/3을 제거하기 때문에, 표피 저항 으로 인해 25-30분 정도가 소요된다. 남은 표피들은 구멍이 많 이 뚫린 상태가 되어 있기 때문이다. 이 주제에 관한 보다 자세 한 내용은 지난 호 기사 “릴렉서가 사용된 모발을 영구적이고 안 전하게 염색하는 방법”을 참조하기 바란다.

Knowledge to Know by Dr. Regenia Marble-DPC



남성을 겨냥한 비즈니스


OTC Beauty Magazine April 2013

성들과 여성들의 구매 습관을 살펴보면, 이 두

그룹 사이를 분명하게 구분짓는 차이를 비교할 수가 있 다. 물론 남성과 여성들의 쇼핑 차이가 변화되는 듯 보 이기는 한다. 예를 들어, 젋고 교육을 잘 받은 남성들은 식료품 쇼핑이 여성의 일이라는 인식을 덜 갖고 있는 듯 하다. 그들은 또한 세일 상점을 더 많이 찾고 자신들이 원하는 제품에 적용되는 할인 쿠폰이 있으면 쿠폰을 사 용하기도 한다. 구매 행동에 관해서, self-concept(자기 개념)이란

When looking

at the buying habits of men and that of women we seem to always compare the differences that are truly clear among each group. The shopping differences between men and women seem to be changing, though. For example, younger, well-educated men are less likely to believe grocery shopping is a woman’s job. They would also be more inclined to bargain shop and use coupons if the coupons were properly targeted at them. In regards to buying behavior, self-concept is how you see yourself—be it positive or negative. Your ideal self is how you would like to see yourself—whether it’s more handsome, more popular, smarter or more physically fit. Marketing researchers believe people buy products to enhance how they feel about themselves—to get themselves closer to their ideal selves. Many beauty products and cosmetic procedures are advertised in a way that’s supposed to appeal to the ideal selves people are searching for. All of us want products that improve our lives. Men are becoming more a factor with beauty products; more items are manufactured and geared directly to men, from skin care to hair styling products. Growth in the hair color category has made the male buyer a desired customer for the OTC. Men are not holding their heads down and hiding behind shelves with their purchase of hair color anymore. Hair color is now labeled as an enhancer to a man’s overall grooming. With the explosion of hair color-styling out of Philadelphia, Bigen has become the leader with hair color for the professional barber. Coloring gray is not the only reason a man reaches for hair color today. Hair colors marketed to men are used for shading thinning hair lines, filling in effects of alopecia and pattern baldness, enhancing dull natural hair color, low lighting and high lighting. Men are using lighteners for double process coloring as well. Men are also using color for special effects to tip their dreadlocks and braids. In today’s competitive work force, a professional polished appearance gives an edge to a job seeker.

자기 스스로를 어떻게 보고 있는가를 말한다- 긍정적으 로 보는지 부정적으로 보는지. 당신의 이상적인 자기는 당신이 스스로를 어떻게 보고 싶어하는가 하는 것이다 - 보다 잘 생기 고, 더 인기있고, 똑똑하고 혹은 신체적으로 더욱 멋지게.

다. 스킨 케어부터 헤어 스타일링 제품들까지, 남성들을 위한 더 많은 아이템들이 생산되며 준비되고 있다. 헤어 컬러 분야에 서의 성장은 남성 구매자들을 OTC 매장의 희망 고객으로 만들 었다.

남성들은 헤어 컬러 구매에 관해서 더이상 소심하게 고

개를 숙이거나 진열대 뒤에 숨지 않는다. 헤어 컬러는 이제 남 성들의 전반적인 헤어 관리를 위한 향상제로 이름 붙여진다. 필 라델피아로부터의 헤어 컬러 스타일링의 폭발적인 증가와 더 불어, Bigen은 전문 이발사에게는 헤어 컬러의 선두주자가 되 었다. 더이상 남성들은 흰머리 염색으로만 헤어 컬러를 찾는 것 이 아니다. 남성들에게 판매되는 헤어 컬러는 가는 헤어 라인에 색조를 주고, 부분 탈모를 매꿔주며, 푸석한 자연 모발의 색상 을 향상시키거나 하이라이트에도 사용이 된다. 뿐만 아니라 남 성들은 염색의 이중 작업을 위해서 라이트너를 사용하고 있다. 또한 dreadlocks나 braids 끝에 특별한 효과를 주기 위해 서 컬러를 이용하기도 한다. 오늘날 경쟁적인 노동 인구로 인 해, 전문적으로 손질된 외모는 일자리를 찾는 사람들에게 중요 한 부분이 되었다. 턱수염은 섹시한 스타일을 위해 새롭게 주목받는 큰 부분이 되고 있다. 헤어 컬러는 자연스럽고 단정한 모습 그대로 를 유지한 채 약간의 보완을 위해 사용된다.

K-t-K Beards are playing a large part in the new cool to sexy look; hair color is used to fill-in but still leaving a natural clean look. OTC stores will be well advised to embrace the power of the male consumer. The professional barbers are repeat buyers of oil sheen and oil serums, conditioner and shampoo, which are offered by Bigen and other hair care companies. The barbers are also a marketing source for store managers since they influence and suggest maintenance products to their clients. Sampling to this group is a plus for new consumer traffic. Suggest items that are well matched with their initial purchase. For example, consider the common question of the food industry, “Do you need fries with that shake?” And again, don’t forget trails sizes if available and sample, sample, sample!

OTC 매장은 남성 소비자들의 힘을 열렬히 받아들 일 수 있는 조언들을 잘 받아 들일 것이다. 전문 이발사들은 Bigen이나 다른 헤어 케어 업체들이 제공하고 있는 광택 오 일과 오일 세럼, 컨디셔너와 샴푸 등의 반복적인 구매자들이 다. 또한 이발사들은 고객들에게 관리 제품들에 관한 영향을 주고 제안을 할 수 있다는 점에서 매장 매니저들에게는 마 케팅 소스가 된다. 이 그룹에 샘플을 제공함으로써 신규 고 객 유치에 도움이 된다. 그들이 초기에 구매한 제품과 잘 어 울리는 아이템을 제안해봐라. 예를 들어, 음식 산업의 일반 적인 질문을 생각해봐라, “ 쉐이크와 더불어 감자 튀김도 필 요하신가요?” 다시 말하건데, 소비자들이 시도해 볼 수 있는 작은 사이즈를 잊지 말아라. 그리고 샘플, 샘플, 샘플의 중요 성도 잊어서는 안 된다!

Dr. Regenia Marble-DPC is the R&D Promotions Manager for Hoyu USA. This master hairstylist and colorist with years of experience working in the hair care industry is one of the key factors that helped push Bigen Powder line to become a leader in the hair color hair care industry, and in helping develop new products for Hoyu. Ms. Marble has educated thousands of cosmetologists and barbers in the proper use of color and how to grow their business with its use in the US and abroad.

Controlling Chemical


Better Sales

더 나은 매출을 위한 화학적 브레인 프리즈 제어 It happens to the best of us; just when a long line forms at the checkout counter a catastrophe occurs, like a computer screen blacking out rendering it temporarily useless. When a mishap like this happens you have two choices – stress out and retreat, hanging your head in shame as you frantically try to fix the situation and risk customers leaving, or face it head-on while taking the opportunity to get to know your customers better. This gives you the opportunity to talk to your shoppers as the computer reboots, perhaps making purchase suggestions or letting them know about new products. Do you remember those hot summer days as a kid when you would go to a convenience store and get a slurpee to cool down and after a few slurps or gulps you would get this incredible searing pain in the middle of your forehead? Remember how this physical brain freeze would render you useless for about 20 seconds until the pain went away? There is another type of brain freeze, which is a chemical reaction our brain performs when we are under anxiety or stress. It is called a chemical brain freeze (CBF). This is a very primitive but effective way the brain copes with the stresses and difficulties in today’s chaotic world. Our brain is trying to keep us alive and it takes on the role of our triage center. Fight, flight or freeze, our brain will shut down the more complex thinking brain in order to get out of the situation and allow us to cope better. However we don’t always 52

OTC Beauty Magazine April 2013

이런 일들은 우리 대부분에게 일어난다. 계산대 앞에서 사람들이 차례를 기다리며 길게 늘어서 있을 때, 컴퓨터 화면의 렌더링이 일시적으로 끊어지는 것과 같은 참사가 발생할 수도 있다. 이런 사고가 발생하면 당신은 두 가지의 선택이 있다. - 상황을 해결하고 고객들이 그냥 나가버리는 것을 막으려 극도로 흥분하면서 스트레스를 받고 부끄러움에 고개를 숙인다, 혹은 당신의 고객들을 좀 더 알 수 있는 기회와 정면으로 마주하는 것이다. 이것은 컴퓨터를 재부팅하는 동안 고객들과 얘기를 나눌 수 있는 기회를 주는데, 이 기회를 이용해서 구매를 제안하거나 새로운 제품에 관한 정보를 제공할 수가 있다. 어린 시절 무더운 여름날 편의점에 들어가 시원한 슬러피 한 잔을 사서 몇 모금 들이키고 나면, 이마 가운데가 깨지는 듯한 두통을 느끼던 것을 기억하는가? 이런 브레인 프리즈(차가운 것을 갑자기 먹었을 때 생기는 두통)는 통증이 사라질 때까지 20초 정도는 당신이 아무것도 할 수 없게 만든다는 것을 기억하는가? 다른 형태의 브레인 프리즈도 있는데, 이것은 스트레스를 받거나 화가 났을 때 우리의 뇌가 수행하는 화학적인 반응에 해당한다. 화학적 브레인 프리즈(CBF)라고 부른다. 이것은 원시적이긴 하지만 혼돈스러운 현대 사회에서 우리의 뇌가 스트레스와 어려움에 대처하는데 효과적인 방법이다. 뇌는 우리를 계속 살아있게 하려 애를 쓰며, 부상자 분류 센터의 역할을 한다. 전투, 비행 그리고 동결 등 뇌는 우리가 상황을 빠져나가 더 나은 대처를 할 수 있도록 복잡한 사고를 차단한다. 뇌가 사고력을

perform at our best when the brain shuts down the thinking mind. Remember that time you got so mad you couldn’t think straight? Or got called on in a meeting and you were unprepared for the answer? These situations don’t have to be life threatening for that to happen. They can be as simple as having your computer shut down in front of customers. When we are prepared and “stay in the moment” we utilize all of our mental resources available and get creative. When you’re not prepared you can impact your customers in a negative way. Your reaction to a stressful situation can cause your customers to react in a quick decisive way that has them leaving your business and not coming back.

차단하게 되면 우리는 항상 최선의 수행 능력을 보일 수는 없다. 너무 화가 나서 상황을 직시할 수 없을 때를 기억해라. 또는 미팅에서 질문을 받았는데 답변을 제대로 준비하지 못했을 때를 떠올려봐라. 이런 상황들이 일어난다고 해서 인생의 위협을 느낄 필요는 없다. 이런 것들은 단지 고객들 앞에서 컴퓨터가 작동을 멈추는 것처럼 간단한 것일 수 있다. 우리가 준비가 되고 “지금 이 순간에 머물러 있다면”, 우리의 정신적 자원을 활용하고 창의력을 가질 수가 있다. 당신이 준비되지 않은 상태에서는 당신의 고객들에게 부정적인 방법으로 영향을 미칠 수가 있다. 짜증스러운 상황에 대한 당신의 반응이 고객들로 하여금 당신의 매장을 나가 다시는 돌아오지 않도록 빠른 결정을 내리는 원인을 제공할 수가 있다.

Here are 4 key areas to help you connect with customers during stressful situations:

다음은 스트레스 상황에서 당신을 고객들과 연결시키는데 도움이 되는 4 가지 핵심 영역들이다:

1. Stop what you are doing for a moment and step back to analyze the situation. Recognize the fact that your customers are going to be observing you whether you acknowledge them or not. So step back and try and gain an overall perspective of what is happening at the moment. 2. Take a deep breath. Literally, by taking a deep breath you stop the chemical brain freeze that is beginning to happen. Shallow breathing causes your heart to race and your brain to dump survival chemicals into your system. Deep breathing eliminates that process. 3. Engage the thinking brain again by asking yourself some key questions: What impact is this going to have on my customers? If I were a customer how would I feel? How would I want to be treated? What would be a simple solution from the customer’s perspective? By asking these questions the thinking brain becomes engaged again and you can

1. 잠시 하던 일을 중단하고 한 발 물러서 상황을 분석해라. 당신이 고객들을 인정하고 있는지의 여부를 그들이 관찰할 것이라는 사실을 인식해라. 그러니 한 발 물러서서 현재 발생한 일에 대한 전반적인 견해를 얻도록 애써라. 2. 깊이 호흡해라. 말 그대로, 숨을 깊게 쉬면 화학적인 브레인 프리즈가 시작되는 것을 중지시킬 수가 있다. 얕은 호흡은 당신의 심박수를 증가시키고 뇌가 체내 시스템으로 생존을 위한 화학 물질을 배출하는 원인이 된다. 깊은 호흡은 이런 과정들을 제거한다. 3. 스스로에게 몇 가지 중요한 질문을 던지므로 뇌가 다시 사고 활동을 할 수 있게 해라. 고객들에게 어떤 영향을 주게 될까? 만약 내가 고객이라면 어떤 느낌일까? 어떤 대우를 받길 원할까? 고객의 관점에서 볼 때 간단한 해결 방안은 무엇일까? 이런 질문을 스스로에게 하게 되면 두뇌가 다시 사고를 시작하게 되고 당신은 능력의 범주 내에서 창조적인 자원을 이용할 수 있게 된다.

start using your creative resources to their capacity. 4. Be prepared for problems, especially if a particular busy time or complex situation is anticipated. Run through some scenarios if things don’t go right or as planned. In a cockpit when the Caution/Warning Signal flashes, the pilots have been trained to handle problems associated with signals. What options are available? How can you turn a less desirable situation into an opportunity to show the customer you care about their business and loyalty? The more prepared you are the better you will be at handling difficult situations. Controlling chemical brain freezes is not easy. They typically happen when things don’t go according to plan. If you don’t take control of the situation you can wind up with unsatisfactory results. Know that chemical brain freezes can happen to all of us and be prepared for something not to go right. The more we can anticipate something going wrong the better prepared we are to help our customers during these difficult times.

4. 특정 바쁜 시간이나 복잡한 상황이 예상될 때는 문제에 대해 미리 준비해라. 일이 제대로 되지 않거나 계획대로 진행되지 않는다는 가정에 따른 몇 가지 시나리오를 실행해라. 조정석에서 경고 신호등이 깜빡일 때, 조종사는 그 경고 신호와 관련된 문제를 제어할 수 있도록 훈련되어 있다. 어떤 옵션이 가능한가? 어떻게하면 바라지 않던 상황을 기회로 전환시키고 당신이 고객과 비지니스를 중요하게 인식하고 있음을 보여줄 수가 있을까? 더 많이 준비할 수록 당신은 어려운 상황들을 더욱 잘 처리할 수 있을 것이다. 화학적인 브레인 프리즈를 제어하는 것은 쉽지 않다. 그것은 일반적으로 일이 계획대로 진행되지 않을 때 발생한다. 만일 당신이 상황을 제어하지 않는다면, 만족스럽지 못한 결과를 맺게 될 수가 있다. 화학적인 브레인 프리즈는 우리 모두에게 일어날 수 있다는 것을 인식하고 일이 제대로 진행되지 않을 것에 미리 준비해라. 일이 잘못될 수도 있다는 것을 우리가 더욱 많이 예견할수록 어려운 상황에서 고객들을 더욱 잘 도울 수 있도록 준비할 수있게 된다.

King of Locs by Cyrus Jackson

Dare To Compare the Community Conscious Approach


The OTC beauty supply store is an anchor within the ethnic health and beauty arena. After 30 years in the business, I can truly attest to the fact that OTC retail has been the springboard for all of my product launches and their continued support is one of the reasons that our products truly reach the masses. There is a correlation between the strong commitment to community, personal customer service and most of all, proper community conscious pricing that makes the OTC store a vital staple within the ethnic health and beauty category. This comes as no surprise as the majority of OTC stores are located in economically challenged, ethnic areas across the US. The emergence of natural hair care has generated a wave effect of new product lines that promise exclusive results and ingredients at outrageous prices. This creates an issue for the OTC retail store as many communitybased customers may not be able to afford the higher priced product lines. Given the dedication to customer service that sets the OTC apart from retail giants, don’t we all owe it to the industry and to our customers to produce and stock quality products at affordable prices? Providing quality alternatives to overpriced goods and striving to provide the customer service edge is not only smart business for the OTC class of trade, it is a vital service to the communities across the country that make the OTC an institution within the ethnic health and beauty category. We keep our labs busy at Professional Products Unlimited, Inc, diligently developing products that will not only turn a profit, but will meet the needs of our valued customers. Our latest line to launch this quarter is a product called For Mixed Hair. The development of this product holds a special place in my heart as it puts me in the mind of a great lady, my mother Mattie Jackson, who did more than raise a successful business man; she instilled a sense of moral duty and consciousness that extends to every aspect of my life. My mother was of mixed origin and she inspired my quest for the development of quality hair care products. When we developed formulas to meet the specific needs of mixed hair types I was truly elated. Now, with every new advance in the hair care industry comes a barrage of products from every dark recess to gain profit and fill up the “new” ethnic shelf space. I have no doubt that several products designed for mixed hair will launch in the next few months. They will all claim to be the industry

innovator and boost reports that they are “strictly” for mixed hair types. I believe what will separate the community contributor from those that seek to exploit is the fortitude of a fair market price. Products and services that meet the needs and economics of the community-based consumers that have supported ethnic hair care and the OTC are important to the overall future of our industry. These aspects are slowly being lost in our industry. In 2012, I embarked on an unpopular journey within the industry to right a few wrongs that I felt were a growing problem within the hair care category. I heard numerous complaints from customers in regards to overpriced products for natural hair care. Customers that have supported the ethnic health and beauty industry only to find a $40 jar of hair product to achieve their new look and maintain a healthy head of natural hair have expressed their dissatisfaction. Our goal was to develop quality, affordable products that would be the ultimate “compare to” brands within the ethnic hair category. We developed III Sisters of Nature to meet the needs of the average ethnic hair care consumer. III Sisters of Nature is the ultimate in quality and style at a truly reasonable price. We list a comparison message on our products that help our customers understand that our brands are comparable to the higher priced items with all of the same technology and benefits. We did this strictly for our customers that have supported us over the years. Chain accounts have found great success with this model as all stores carry a higher priced name brand product and a “compare to” product. This model can work for the OTC and the benefit of offering a range of products for all consumers means more business for the OTC class of trade. The response has been tremendous and our line is growing in distribution every day. I am sure that many in the OTC class of trade can share this view as the basis of OTC retail is a unique relationship between customer, community and unique service that just is not found at the chain level. For Mixed Hair will be launched in this same spirit of fair market pricing and community conscious quality. I know that our new launch will not just be a lucrative addition to the OTC product mix; it will be a true benefit to the customers that have made this industry tick and yet another testament to the customer service based spirit of the OTC class of trade.

Cyrus Jackson has had a successful career in the hair care industry for over 30 years including sales, marketing and product development with companies such as World of Curl, D-Orum Products and Leisure Curl. Jackson is the owner and president of Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. makers of one of the first complete products lines in the industry for the care and maintenance of natural ethnic hair types, Jamaican Mango & Lime. Jackson’s continued development and promotions of quality products for natural ethnic beauty has made him the self proclaimed King of Locs. April 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

Learn whether the colors you’ve chosen for your business send the right message to your customers or sends them running. Colors can cause an array of reactions such as stimulating or repressing the nervous system, calming or exciting emotions, and may even making people hungry. You want to be careful and utilize colors correctly. It seems hard to believe that colors can have an impact on how we see the world around us, but it’s true. It’s been found that color can influence our physical and mental states. Market researchers know this and use it to their advantage. Consider the meaning of the following colors on your business marketing: •

Blue is the color of corporate America. It represents longevity and security. Blue slows metabolism and produces a calming effect and suppresses appetite. It’s been found that men especially like this color in marketing.

Vibrant Red is usually commands attention. It is a very emotionally volatile color that is exciting and passionate. It stimulates metabolism, increases respiration, and may even raise blood pressure. Red pops text and images off a page. It is a perfect color for buttons on webpages. This color is also commonly associated with energy and vitality.

Orange is a friendly, playful color. But, also one that is demanding of the viewers attention. It is energetic and feels flamboyant and casual. Orange increases oxygen supply and is said to stimulate brain activity. The energy and health orange conveys is readily accepted by young adults when used in marketing.

Earthy brown tones portray simplicity and comfort and credibility.

Yellow is uplifting, imaginative energy and is quite welcoming. Yellow usually feels warm, cheerful, triggers brain activity and gives us energy. Children and those looking to travel react very well to yellow advertising. Yellow is very effective for attracting attention when placed against a dark background. The contrast is undeniable and beckons the reader.

Green is associated with growth, health and comfort. It is the most restful color and is said to be able to improve vision. Of course it can be used in the financial sector.

Gray is reliable, mature and solidly predictable.

Black can be powerfully formal or show high style. It makes its mark.

White is simple, clean and precise.

Consider how these colors can be used by your company. We say more than we know about ourselves and the image we’d like to portray using colors in our businesses.

Perfect Edges 와 Creme of Nature Strength & Shine Leave-in Conditioner 를 추가해서 라인을 확장하면서 끊임없이 혁신을 지속하고 있습니다. 이러한 저희의 혁신적인 노력은 2013년에도 100% Pure Argan Oil (황산, 파라벤, 실리콘이 전혀 첨가되지 않은) 의 출시와 더불어 지속될 것입니다. 이 외에도 7-N-1(다양한 효능을 한꺼번에 지닌 트리트먼트)인Creme of Nature Perfect 7 은 릴렉서를 사용한 모발부터 자연 모발까지 모두 사용할 수 있는 올인원 제품의 편리함을 소비자들에게 제공하게 될 것입니다.

OTC: OTC 매장에서 가장 효과적이라고 생각하는 제품 홍보 형태는 무엇이며 왜 그렇게 생각하시는지요? MR: 제품 홍보에 관해서는, 매장 및 그 판매 직원들과의 첫 만남이 중요합니다. 매장 직원들이 각자 집에 가져갈 수 있는 제품 샘플이 있어야 합니다. 판타지아는 제품에 관한 작은 책자나 설명서, 샘플 등이 있습니다. TPR(임시 가격 인하), “1 + 1” 과 같은 가격 행사와 수축 포장이 제품 홍보에 효과적입니다.

OTC: If OTC store owners attend trade shows like Cosmoprof that is coming up in July, what do you see as the most beneficial thing they learn and gain from them? MR: Cosmoprof is always a great opportunity for OTC store owners to have face to face interaction with manufacturers and learn in more detail their plans for supporting existing product lines along with hearing about upcoming new product launches. It is also particularly important for store owners to give their feedback to manufacturers about ideas that they have to grow the business. OTC: What do you foresee in the future for the company?

OTC: 회사의 제품을 효과적으로 판매할 수 있는 가장 좋은 방법은 무엇일까요? 매장내 제품을 진열하기에 가장 좋은 위치는 어디입니까? MR: 저희 제품을 판매하는 최선의 방법은 샘플입니다; 저희 제품은 성능면에서 경쟁력이 뛰어납니다. 각 제품이나 브랜드마다 전문 마케팅 방법이 요구되기는 하지만, 저희 제품은 매장 내에서도(endcaps: 진열대 양쪽 끝) 아주 눈에 잘 띄며, 판매 시스템을 통해 적절한 교육용 정보도 확실히 보유하는 것이 중요하다고 생각합니다. OTC: 다문화 뷰티 매장 운영자들이 고객들에게 귀사의 제품을 추천하기 위해 알아야 할 가장 중요한 것은 무엇이라고 생각하십니까 MR: Colomer 브랜드는 간단히 말해 기능입니다. 최고의 성분에서 출발하는 뷰티 케어 제품으로 소비자들과 전문가들의 기대를 능가하고자 하는것이 저희의 가장 큰 약속입니다. 저희 회사는 다양한 인종의 아름다움과 아름다움의 권위뿐 아니라, 자신들이 원하는 모든 것을 줄 수 있는 고객들의 소리를 들을 수 있는 회사가 되고자 다문화 브랜드의 성공적인 포트폴리오를 수립해 왔습니다. 저희 제품은 자연적인 곱슬머리나 릴렉서를 사용한 모발의 여성들이 자신감과 섹시함을 가질 수 있게 만듭니다. OTC: OTC 매장 운영자들이 오는 7월에 있을Cosmoprof와 같은 트레이드 쇼에 참가했을 때 얻게 될 가장 큰 혜택에는 어떤 것들이 있다고 보십니까? MR: Cosmoprof는 OTC 매장 운영자들이 유통업체와 직접적인 상호 교류를 할 수 있는 가장 좋은 기회가 되고, 현재의 브랜드를 지원하는 그들의 계획에 대한 상세한 정보는 물론 새롭게 출시될 신제품에 관한 소식도 들을 수가 있습니다. 유통업체들에게 매장 운영자들의 여러 의견을 제시함으로써 사업 성장에 필요한 아이디어를 얻을 수 있다는 점에서도 중요하죠. OTC: Colomer USA에 대해 최종적으로 OTC 독자들과 공유하고 싶은 의견이 있으시다면? MR: Colomer는 혁신적인 제품으로 고객들을 즐겁게하고 OTC 매장과의 진정한 파트너십을 극대화함으로써 다양한 인종을 겨냥한 헤어 케어 업계의 최고 기업이 되는 것을 목표로 하고 있습니다.

스트레스는 욕심에서 오는 것입니다 Jenny’s Fashion & Beauty • Tifton, Georgia 현대인들의 만병의 근원은 ‘스트레스’ 라고 많은 의 사들이 말하고 있다. 하지만, 현재를 살아 가면서 스 트레스를 받지 않고 사는 사람은 없을 것이다. 다만, 스트레스를 더 받고, 덜 받고의 차이가 있을 뿐이다. 자신이 원하지 방향으로 일들이 풀리지 않을 때 스트 레스 지수는 올라간다. 다시 말해서 원하는 것, 즉, 욕 심이 많을 수록, 그 만큼 스트레스를 받을 확률이 높 아진다는 것이다. 혹자는, 개인의 욕심이 자신을 노 력하게 만들고, 발전을 시키는 원동력이 된다고도 한 다. 하지만, 욕심이라는 것은 사전에도 나와 있듯이, 정도에 지나치게 탐하거나 누리고자 하는 마음인 것 이다. 자신의 현실을 직시하고 받아들이는 마음 자세 가 곧 스트레스를 덜 받는 방법일 것이다. 욕심을 부 리기 보다는 좀더 여유로운 생각, 마음가짐이 정신적 육체적 건강에 도움이 되는 것이다. 요즘 비즈니스를 운영하는 많은 오너들이 경제적 침체로 인해 엄청난 스트레스를 받고 있다. 물론, 경제적 상황이 이러하 76

니 손 놓고 좌시하라는 것은 아니다. 다만, 조급해만 한다고 해서 상황이 크게 바뀌는 것이 아니라면, 마 음이라도 조금 여유롭게 갖는 것이 현명한 것이 아닐 까 하는 생각을 해본다. 이번에 OTC Beauty Magazine 에서 인터뷰한 Georgia 주의 Tifton 시에 위치 한 Jenny’s Fashion & Beauty 를 운영하는 Jenny Tillman 사장은 타고난 낙천적인 성격으로 현재의 불 황에도 긍정적이며, 생활을 즐길 줄 아는, 몇 안 되는 오너 중 한명일 것이다. 그녀와 의 인터뷰를 통 해 어떻게 하면 일상에서 스트 레스를 덜 받을 수 있는지를 알 아 보도록 하자.

유니크 한 이미지 구축 72년도에 도미하여 현재 40여년이 넘은 미국 생활을 하고 있 는 Jenny 씨는 96년도부터 뷰티 서플라이 스토어를 운영하 고 있다. 지인을 통해 뷰티가 무엇인지를 배우고, 스토어를 운영하기 시작했다는 Jenny 씨는 “스토어를 찾아주는 고객 들과 대화를 나누는 것이 너무 즐겁습니다” 라며 인터뷰 시 작부터 환한 미소를 지어 보였다. 그녀가 운영하는 Jenny’s Fashion & Beauty 는 Tifton 다운타운에 위치해 있으며, 전 에 고급 옷가게를 운영하던 스토어라 높은 천장과 인테리어 가 다른 뷰티 서플라이 스토어와는 사뭇 다른 모습을 하고 있 었다. 보통의 2층 높이 정도인 높은 천장과, 곳곳에 세워져 있는 나무 기둥은 매우 이색적인 분위기를 연출하고 있었다. 높은 천장 덕분에 3,500 sq ft 의 스토어는 훨씬 넓어 보였다. 게다가 스토어 앞쪽에 패션 제품과 쥬얼리 등을 배치하여 기 존의 뷰티 서플라이 스토어들과는 확실히 차별이 되어 보였 다. 뿐만 아니라, 제품들도 보다 유니크 한 제품들과 품질을 우선으로 한 제품들을 구비하여 스토어의 위상을 한층 높여 주었다. “공간에 제약이 있다 보니, 주로 유니크 한 제품들 을 많이 취급하려고 합니다” 라는 Jenny 씨는 주어진 공간의 한계 때문에 제품을 차별화 하여 경쟁력을 갖추려 하고 있다 고 한다. “이 지역에서 오랫동안 스토어를 운영하다 보니, 좋 은 품질의 제품만을 취급하여 고객들의 만족도를 이끌어 내 는 것이 저희 스토어 이미지를 구축하는데 중요한 요소가 되 었습니다” 라고 덧붙이기도 하였다. 또한, 예전에 테일러 스 토어를 운영했던 경험이 있어 고객들의 가발도 직접 바느질 을 해서 사이즈를 맞춰 주기도 한다는 Jenny 씨는 “그때 배 운 기술을 유용하게 써먹고 있습니다” 라고 한다.

스트레스를 날려 버리는 고객과의 소통 그녀의 또 다른 단골을 만드는 노하우로는 ‘정직’ 이라고 자 신 있게 말한다. “17년 이상 같은 장소에서 장사를 하다 보니, April 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

진정한 삶의 여유 현재, 30년이 넘게 한 직장에서 근속하고 있는 남편은, 주말 에 취미생활로 밴드에서 기타를 치고 노래를 한다고 한다. 그래서 한 달에 한 두 번, 주말이면 공연을 하는 클럽을 함께 가서 주말을 즐긴다는 Jenny 씨는, “저희 남편과 딸은 음악 적 재능이 남다르고, 제 두 아들들은 현재 애니메이션을 만 드는 회사의 디렉터로 직장생활을 하고 있습니다” 라며, 그 야말로 ‘끼’로 뭉친 가족임을 과시(?) 하였다. 대부분의 스토 어 오너들은 요즘 침체된 경기덕에 한숨으로 하루하루를 보 내고 있다. 물론, Jenny 씨가 운영하는 스토어가 남들과 다 르게 승승장구하며 판매고가를 달리고 있는 것은 아니다. 하 지만 행복지수가 확연히 차이가 나는 것만은 확실해 보였다. 고객들이 모두 가족 같습니다. 그래서 거짓말을 할 수도 없

Choosing the Right Combo With the introduction of the US-1 magnetic motor clipper series, the Andis Co. is able to offer improved clipper/trimmer combos with reasonable price points. In the past all clipper/ trimmer combos kits featured an entry level pivot motor clipper, but now things have changed. The US-1 clipper series offers a strong magnetic motor, a lightweight housing, and a quality build. The US-1 clipper series is led by the Andis Envy clipper. When you combine the Envy clipper with the world’s most famous trimmer, the Andis T- Outliner, a combo unlike any other is created. The combo marries great pricing with great quality and comes in two fashions, Stylist Combo and Barber Combo. The difference between these two options, besides the color of the housing, is the blade set each trimmer is equipped with. The Andis Stylist combo kits feature a deep tooth blade set which allows more hair to feed through the trimmer blades, allowing more hair to be cut with less cutting action. The Andis Barber combo kit features a traditional trimmer blade, one which all barbers know and love. Both kits have T-Outliners that feature new elongated switches to allow for easy on/off motion with one swift movement of the thumb. Placing the new and useful Andis Barber and Stylist Combos in line of sight of your customers will often initiate a conversation between the two of you and may lead to a sale and another satisfied customer. Professionals and consumers alike have many uses for these combos, such as dry shaving, at-home beard maintenance, and all around clipper cutting. Both combo kits offer quality tools that are manufactured in the USA, making replacement parts easily available. Also, each tool is also backed by an Andis one year warranty. Featuring the Barber and Stylist Combo kits in your store will lead to increased sales and appreciative customers. This is due to the quality features found in each kit and the benefits your customers will realize when using Andis quality products. Kenny “The Professional” Duncan is a National educator for the Andis Co. He has presented classroom demonstrations and platform education at many tradeshows such as Empire Future Professionals, IHS International Hair Show, Bronner Bros International Hair Show and many more. He brings a wealth of information and experience to clipper cutting education.

Therapy Trends Mad Color Goes Mod

This spring’s color spectrum is like a kaleidoscope of product sales. Your consumers are being influenced by the retro-color pallets and patterns from the 60s and 70s—from the Mad Men Era to the Mod Era. As your clients experiment with bold, bright shades of nostalgia, each look requires multiple products. Collections of color range from the psychedelic brights to the gilded neutrals. One manufacturer presented a trend collection that incorporated a theme of “rose gold.” The consumer was asked to incorporate glittering gold nails, luminous metallic eye shadow, luminescent pink lips and a rose-gold shade of blonde. Another trend, ombre hair coloring, gradually takes one’s color from dark to light. Darker hair blending into another shade means buying make up that accommodates two shades of hair color. This multi-category color statement should be a clue for how to merchandise your store. Shifting looks and changing hair color is easier than it has ever been before. Natural ingredients that minimize the damaging effects of ammonia and peroxide have led to an industry where 60 percent of American women safely color their hair. As many consumers change hair color, they may require a total makeup makeover. Experts are advising that shade selections should be changed as hair color changes. Selecting a new makeup is governed by eye color and skin tone. Consumers can easily experiment with color and design. Each retro look is modernized with multiple products to amplify the color from an undercoat or overcoat that adds texture or intensity. How Mod! Elayne McClaine has identified and developed emerging domestic and global trends in hair care, skin care and other consumer categories for such firms as Chesebrough-Pond’s, Revlon and Pharmacia (div. of Pfizer). Her expertise in therapeutic treatments for hair, skin and scalp led to the creation of the Women’s Institute for Fine and Thinning Hair, sponsored by Rogaine. McClaine has been acknowledged by the American Academy of Dermatologists for marketing and promotional excellence.

Andis at LaQuan Smith New York Fashion Week 2013

At New York Fashion Week Fall 2013, Andis Co. sponsored T.Cooper and her styling team from Metro Look who created the futuristic hairstyles for LaQuan Smith’s Fall 2013 Bond collection. His designs have been worn by Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and Rihanna. For the hair, Smith from Queens, NY, was inspired by Robin Given’s character in the movie “Boomerang.” To create the “victory roll” for all of the models, Cooper first smoothed hair with the Andis Curved Edge Titanium Flat Iron and created bend and texture with Andis Titanium Curling Irons. Sectioning out the top, the hair on the sides

and nape were smoothed and pulled back in a ponytail. The ponytail ends were twisted up to the top of the head, rolled, pinned and sprayed. To ensure a uniform look, some extensions were curled and added to the victory roll for fullness and volume. “The Andis Titanium tools heated fast and worked great on all the hair,” says Cooper. “The different heat settings worked perfectly for the multi ethnicities of the all of models.” Learn more at April 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

SoftSheen-Carson Magic Cream Shave

SoftSheen-Carson Magic Shave, the undisputed leader in African-American men’s grooming and shaving, has re-introduced their iconic men’s shaving brand, Magic Shave. Magic Shave has been the pioneer in men’s depilatories for over 100 years. Its classic, unique formula, available in both a powder and cream form, removes men’s facial hair while reducing the occurrence of razor bumps— revealing a smooth, clean, and razor-bump free face. This hair-removal process provides a closer shave than a razor. 120

Consumers will also enjoy the updated “fresh scented fragrance,” an herbal blend of mint and basil. Lastly, the new Magic Cream Shave packaging has been upgraded with a cool and contemporary, yet classic feel.
