Many talented people feel that they do not have anything new to learn in their chosen field. They believe what got them there is enough. However, those who are determined and who work hard often spend a lot of time and effort to learn new skills and maintain their existing ones. Always keep learning!

Knowledge To Know Children’s Haircare Category �����34 by Taliah Waajid Today it is clear that there has been a sea of change in how natural hair is viewed and valued, and children are more natural than ever. There are many things you can do as a store owner to make sure you cater to this younger audience. For example, make sure your shelves reflect what consumers are looking for in this category, offer combo packs to make shopping easy for multi-tasking customers and use merchandising tools at key times during the year.

아동용 헤어 케어 카테고리 요즘, 네추럴 헤어에 대한 검토와 평가 방법이 변화의 바다가 되었음이 이제 분명해졌으며, 아이들은 그 어느 때보다 네추럴 헤어를 많이 유지하고 있다. 스토어의 오너로서 이러한 젊은 층의 관심을 눈 여겨 볼 필요가 있다. 한 예로, 선반을 이러한 관심제품들로 채우고, 제품들을 모아 매장에서 콤보로 제공한다면 소비자들이 당신의 매장에서 제품 선택과 구매를 더욱 쉽게 할 수가 있다.

Efficacy of Natural Baby Lotions���������������������������������� 36 by Sweet BumBum Baby lotions today are a necessity in a baby’s regular body care routine. They pamper little ones in a way which keeps them fresh and happy all day long. However, make it a point to go for natural baby products, since they are absolutely perfect and safe on a baby’s super soft and sensitive skin.

많은 재능 있는 사람들은 자신이 선택한 분야에서 배울 수 있는 새로운 것이 없다고 느낀다. 그들은 자신들이 이미 충분히 갖고 있다고 믿는다. 하지만, 결심한 사람과 열심히 일하는 사람은 새로운 기술을 배우고 자신의 존재를 유지하기 위해 많은 노력과 시간을 쓴다. 끊임없이 노력해야 한다!

Children’s Products—What’s the Best Way to Move Them? ���������������������������������� 50 by Tabitha Odell Children’s products are tricky. As the store you want to stay in the “safety zone” by being informative, but non-committal; don’t commit to any one item. As the store you “only carry quality items” that you are comfortable offering to your consumer, but a person’s likes or dislikes are subjective and individual in nature. Keep the decision in the hands of the consumer so he or she can’t blame your store if they have a problem

아동용 제품 – 그들을 움직일 수 있는 최고의 방법은 무엇일까? 아동용 제품은 까다롭다. 매장의 입장에서, 당신은 “안전 지대” 안에 있길 원한다. 내가 말하는 “안전 지대”란 유익하지만, 애매한 상태를 뜻한다. 어떤 제품에 대해서도 언질을 주지 말라. 매장으로서의 당신은 소비자들에게 편안하게 제공할 수 있는 “단지 좋은 품질의 제품을 취급” 하는 것이고, 사람의 호불호는 주관적이며 개인적인 것이다. 소비자들에게 결정권을 주어, 잘못될 경우에 책임을 전가할 수 없도록 만들어야 한다.

Editorial Letter

Sun, School and Little Sweeties 태양, 학교 그리고 사랑스러운 아이들 For the most part, spring is in full swing and if you are like me you couldn’t be happier. The frigid temperatures of the winter have passed us by and now sunshine, flowers blooming and smiling faces adorning the sweet faces of children ever ywhere are here as they are able to play outside once again. This is actually a big time for kids! Not only are they enjoying the thrills of the warmer spring air, but they are also on the last leg of this school year and summer vacation is just around the bend. Nevertheless, they still have a few more months to look fashionable as they fill their minds with knowledge each day. That’s where you, their local OTC store owner comes in. All year around it is important to stay stocked up on children’s products in your store. Children can change hair styles all the time as they are discovering exactly who they are, and the changes in seasons can have an effect too. For example, girls who have let their hair flow freely during the winter to help cover their necks may now opt for tied-up tresses… and they’re going to need new product! Additionally, we are beginning the prime time for sunscreen, so you will want to make sure it’s in your selection. Let us help you be prepared for whatever the year may bring. Whether it be in regard to product selection, new innovations, business practices or staying up to date with the latest happenings in the industr y—we have it all here at OTC Beauty Magazine. Life is never boring when children around; they are always into something. So be sure to stay on your toes this season!

봄이 완연히 찾아온 요즘, 여러분도 저의 마음과 같다면 더할 나위 없이 행복할 것입니다. 겨울의 추운 기온은 지나갔고, 이제 따뜻한 햇볕과 꽃망울들, 다시 밖에서 뛰어놀 수 있는 아이들의 사랑스러운 얼굴을 장식하는 웃는 얼굴들이 사방에 가득합니다. 실제로 지금은 아이들을 위한 시간입니다! 아이들은 지금 따뜻한 봄 기운을 즐기는 것뿐 아니라, 이번 학년의 마지막 부분에 있으며 모퉁이를 돌면 바로 여름 방학을 맞게 됩니다. 그럼에도 불구하고, 아이들에게는 날마다 새로운 지식으로 마음을 채우는 것만큼 세련되게 보일 수 있는 몇 개월의 시간이 있습니다. 여기가 바로 여러분과 여러분의 OTC 매장주들이 들어오는 곳입니다. 매장에 아동용 제품을 보유하는 것은 계절과 상관없이 1년 내내 중요합니다. 아이들은 자신의 모습을 발견해 가면서 언제든 헤어 스타일을 변화할 수 있고, 계절의 변화 또한 영향을 미칠 수 있습니다. 예를 들어, 여자 아이들은 겨울 동안 머리를 자연스럽게 늘어트려 놓으며 추위로부터 목을 감싸는데도 도움이 되지만, 지금은 묶어 올리는 스타일을 선택할지도 모릅니다. 그러면 그들은 새로운 제품이 필요하게 될 것입니다! 또한, 우리는 자외선 차단제의 황금 시기의 시작점에 있으며, 여러분의 선택 사항에 이 제품이 있는지를 확인하길 원할 것입니다. 한 해 동안 필요한 어떤 것이든 여러분이 준비할 수 있도록 우리가 도와 드리겠습니다. 제품 선택이나 새로운 혁신, 비즈니스 관행 혹은 업계의 최신 동향까지 무엇이든 여기 OTC 뷰티 매거진에서 모두 얻을 수 있습니다. 그들은 항상 무언가를 하고 있는 아이들과 함께 있으면 인생은 결코 지루하지 않습니다. 여러분도 이 계절을 확실히 준비하시길 바랍니다.

Teens with Acne

Growing up we all had our bouts and fits with acne. Adolescence is already an awkward and confusing time for teens and acne can sometimes worsen their self confidence. Obtaining great skin takes patience, obedience, and dedication. If you’re a teen looking to solve your problem with blemishes or a parent looking to help your child, read the tips below to begin fighting against this common skin issue.

acne treatment fights germs that could be contributing to your acne. You can find this powerful ingredient within Clear Essence’s Blemish Control Wash Formula. The minty facial wash rids the skin of dirt, oil and bacteria after a long day.

 1. Make sure that the hands are clean when you touch your face. Special care has to be taken when touching the spotty areas.
 2. Always use a Clear Essence dermatologist recommended product for cleansing, toning, treating and moisturizing.
 3. Exercise regularly.
 4. Stick to a diet rich in vegetables, salads and whole grains.

Oral antibiotics you might be prescribed include: • Tetracycline, doxycycline, or minocycline • Erythromycin

 4. Use heavy comedogenic* creams and cosmetics. (*tending to cause blackheads by blocking pores) Treatment Options Salicylic Acid: Salicylic Acid is an anti-bacterial solution. That means that this

Antibiotics: Occasionally, your dermatologist might prescribe an antibiotic to be taken by mouth.

Topical antibiotics include: • Azelaic acid • Clindamycin • Erythromycin • Sodium sulfacetamide Topical sulfur products: Many over-the-counter soaps and anti-acne creams contain sulfur, which has been in use as an acne treatment for half a century. Try the Clear Essence Medicated Cleansing Bar which has tiny exfoliating beads that remove dirt and dead skin cells that often clog pores. No matter what acne treatment is used, if it is not working and you continue to suffer from bouts of acne, talk to your doctor. You may need to step up your program, or change it around a little for best results.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

Swimming with Sunscreen! Swimming can be a very exciting event especially if you are competitive in swimming. It also can be really fun for all of your children when they take their swimming lessons. If you have your children enrolled in swimming lessons and they spend a few hours each day in the sun it is very important that you do a few necessary things before you allow them to get into the water. One of the first things you need to do is be sure that they are always safe so that they do not get a sunburn. Kids’ sunscreen is very important to children especially the children that are getting in the water.

Isn’t waterproof sunscreen a waste of money? “Some people do believe that and think getting sunscreen that is waterproof is a waste of money because it does not work. If you have never tried it then you do not realize just how long-lasting waterproof sunscreen can be. Not only does it work, but it will protect your child while swimming or any other water activity. It’s always a good idea that you check your child throughout the day to see how the sunscreen is holding up. Naturally you might need to apply some more sunscreen from time to time but that is normal for any product that is waterproof. The fun thing about summertime is there are plenty of water activities that will be going on in your area. It’s also a good time that you stock up on waterproof sunscreen so that if your child is invited to attend an event that is involving water activities then you are ready to go and your child can go have fun. The summer weather is something that everyone enjoys including your kids so always try to be prepared and have everything covered so that they are able to go play and enjoy their summer time fun and games. Remember to protect yourself and your spouse or partner with sunscreen as well because harmful rays can harm people of all ages and the last thing you want is a sunburn.” Article courtesy of You can find the article at:

Robin Kissner, Esthetician Summertime means plenty of summer fun and also plenty of summer sun. Esthetician Robin Kissner likes to remind her clients to protect their skin year-round, but especially when they spend extra time outdoors in the summertime. There is a sunblock for all skin types and also all ages. Pay special attention to the sensitive skin of children. Another tip is to make sure your kid’s sunscreen is water-resistant if they will be swimming.

물놀이는 자외선 차단제와 함께! 수영에 소질이 있다면, 매우 즐거운 운동일 것이다. 또한 아이들이 수영 레슨에 참여할 때, 모든 아이들이 정말로 재미있어 하는 것을 볼 수 있다. 만일 당신의 자녀를 수영 레슨에 참여시키고 아이들이 태양 아래서 하루에 몇 시간씩 보낸다면, 아이들이 물 속으로 첨벙 뛰어들기 전에 당신이 해야할 몇 가지 아주 중요한 것들이 있다. 당신이 해야 할 것들 중 하나는, 아이들이 항상 안전하며 화상을 입지 않는지 확인하는 것이다! 아동용 자외선 차단제는 물 속에 들어가는 아이들에게 특히 아주 중요하다.

방수 자외선 차단제는 돈 낭비가 아닐까? “어떤 사람들은 방수 자외선 차단제는 효과가 없기 때문에 돈 낭비라고 생각합니다. 만일 한 번도 사용한 적이 없다면, 당신은 얼마 동안 방수 자외선 차단제가 지속되는지를 알 수가 없습니다. 방수 자외선 차단제는 효과가 있을 뿐 아니라, 수영이나 다른 물놀이에서 아이들을 보호해줄 것입니다. 하루 동안 아이의 자외선 차단제가 어떻게 지속되는지 확인하는 것은 좋은 방법입니다. 자외선 차단제를 때때로 좀 더 바를 필요가 있지만 대부분은 방수 기능이 있는 것이 정상입니다.

여름철의 재미는 물놀이 활동이 많다는 것입니다. 또한 방수용 자외선 차단제를 여러 개

비축해야 하는 시기이기도 합니다. 아이들이 물놀이 행사에 초대받을 때를 대비할 수가 있으며, 당신의 아이도 즐겁게 지낼 준비가 되는 것입니다. 여름철 날씨는 아이들뿐 아니라 모두가 즐길 수 있으므로, 야외에서 즐거운 시간을 보내기 위해 필요한 모든 것들을 항상 준비해 두는 것이 좋습니다.

뿐만 아니라, 당신과 당신의 배우자 역시 자외선 차단제로 보호 해야 함을 명심해야 합니다.

유해 광선은 모든 연령대의 사람들에게 해로울 수 있으며 마지막에는 화상을 입게 됩니다” Robin Kissner, Esthetician 여름은 아주 많은 여름철 놀이를 의미하지만 아주 많은 태양을 뜻하기도 한다. 피부 관리사인Robin Kissner는 자신의 고객들에게 1 년 내내 피부를 보호할 것을 알려주며, 특히 여름철 야외에서 많은 시간을 보낼 때는 반드시 피부를 보호할 것을 권한다. 모든 피부 타입과 연령대를 위한 자외선 차단제가 있다. 민감한 아이들의 피부에는 특별한 주의를 기울여라. 만일 아이들이 물놀이를 할 것이라면 아이들의 자외선 차단제에 방수 기능이 있는지 확인할 것 또한 조언한다.

The Benefits of Using

Cocoa Butter


or hundreds of years cocoa butter (a.k.a. cacao butter) has been used in skincare. Keeping your skin moisturized as well as ultra-hydrated is the primary health purpose. Pure cocoa butter also offers major moisturizing advantages. Cocoa butter is the natural fat from the cocoa bean. The actual extracted body fat, light yellow in color, is edible, having a slight chocolaty taste and fragrance. It also passes the title of theobroma essential oil. Uses in Skincare Products Pure cocoa butter can be used in skincare moisturizing creams. It can also often be utilized in body treatment lines as the main component in “body butter” lotions and cleansers. Skin maintenance systems that prevent stretch marks feature real cocoa butter as the primary, otherwise sole, component. Pure cacao butter may also effectively deal with skin problems that trigger serious dryness as well as irritation, for example eczema as well as dermatitis. It’s also used within natural skin oils, particularly therapeutic massage oils, and its pleasant fragrance lends it to some role within aromatherapy items and perfumed toiletries. The main ingredient of lip balms and locks treatments is cacao butter as well. Functions in Skincare Pure cacao butter may be recognized for hundreds of years as the best emollient component for keeping your skin supple, with the ability to absorb into the skin easily due to its tendency to melt at body temperature, and consequently soak into the skin nearly immediately on contact. It also has powerful antioxidant qualities, which provides an extended shelf existence, and benefits your skin by protecting it from harmful environment factors. With the ability to alleviate eczema as well as dermatitis, it works by inhibiting the 30

actual production associated with immunoglobulin that continues and worsens these types of conditions. Due to the ability to become absorbed deeply into the skin as well as hydrate and protect the skin, cocoa butter can be used frequently by women that are pregnant to avoid and treat stretch marks. Benefits Used topically, cocoa butter instantly impacts the actual texture of the skin and makes it feel much more supple as well as soft. Additionally, it provides immediate irritation and pain alleviation for pores and skin irritations. Since it can penetrate your skin layers deeply, its effective use within eczema as well as dermatitis treatment provides the added advantage of not needing to continually re-apply the cocoa butter cream a lot more than once or twice daily. Continued use keeps your skin hydrated and enforces collagen as well as elastin manufacturing. This prevents your skin from experiencing the long to medium-term results of exterior influences like pollution. Cocoa butter’s silk-like sensation and calming scent delivers stress-relieving as well as relaxation benefits when it is used in therapeutic massage. Other Utilizations of Cocoa Butter Cocoa butter can be used to help to make milk as well as white chocolate. Because of its capability to maintain shelf existence 2 to 5 years, cocoa butter can also be used to create natural cocoa powder. It can also be used within pharmaceutical products made to ease arthritis and stop heart illness.

Knowledge to Know by Taliah Waajid

Children’s Haircare Category More Natural than Ever

아동용 헤어 케어 카테고리 - 그 어느때보다 네추럴한… Indeed, during my more than 25 years of experience as a Master Cosmetologist, Natural Hair Stylist and Hair Care Manufacturer, I’ve never seen anything like what our industry and society is experiencing now. When I established my first brand almost 20 years ago, interest in natural haircare was casually dismissed as a trend and considered more of a fleeting preoccupation rather than a lasting transformation and trend. Well that has all changed now! The trickledown effect is those parents who went natural in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s have passed down natural haircare practices to their children. Today, it’s not uncommon to encounter children and teenagers who have never had a relaxer in their entire lives. It’s now clear that there has been a sea of change in how natural hair is viewed and valued, and children are more natural than ever. According to IRI reporting 2014, the ethnic children’s category is roughly 5% of all ethnic haircare sales resulting in an estimated over $45-$50 million dollars in sales in all distribution channels, including OTCs. This segment’s growth is due to maintenance products on the rise, while children’s relaxer kit sales are down. The companies that are contributing to the growth in the children’s category are companies like Shea Moisture, Taliah Waajid, African Pride and Mixed Chicks. The direct correlation to maintenance category sales growth is due to more children wearing natural hair styles like pony puffs, large parted plaits, two-strand twists, and smaller braids. While smaller braids or twists with extensions take longer to achieve, they have a long-lasting payoff, buying parent’s time between styling and combing sessions. Even with these longer lasting styles, maintenance products are still utilized. Making sure your shelves reflect what consumers are looking for in this category is important. Mothers—your key customer for the children’s category—continually seek and seem to prefer chemical-free, natural based products that provide maximum detangling, conditioning and softening, moisture and hydration, and shine and luster, with a pleasant scent. Having the proper mix of products for children (both girls and boys) will be very important to ‘mothers’ that come into stores to make purchases.

사실, 수석 미용사이자 네추럴 헤어 스타일리스트, 헤어 케어 제조업체로 서 25년 이상의 경험을 가진 나는, 우리 산업과 사회가 지금 경험하고 있는 것을 예전엔 본적이 없다. 20여년 전 내가 첫 번째 브랜드를 설립할 때, 네 추럴 헤어 케어에 대한 관심은 무심히 한 트랜드로만 일축되었고, 지속적 인 변화와 트랜드라기 보다는 덧없는 집착으로 간주되었다. 그러나 지금 모 든 것이 달라졌다! trickledown effect(낙수 효과)는 80,90년대 그리고 2000년대 초 기에 네추럴을 선호하던 부모 세대들이 자녀들에게 네추럴 헤어 케어 관리 를 물려주는 것이다. 오늘날 릴렉서를 결코 사용한 적 없는, 선천적인 자신 의 헤어를 그대로 갖고 있는 아이들이나 청소년들을 만나는 것은 드문일이 아니다. 네추럴 헤어에 대한 검토와 평가 방법이 변화의 바다가 되었음이 이제 분명해졌으며, 아이들은 그 어느 때보다 네추럴 헤어를 많이 유지하고 있다. 2014 IRI 보고에 따르면, 에스닉 아동용 제품의 범주는OTC 매 장을 포함한 모든 유통 채널에서 의 판매 추정액4,500 - 5천만 달러 이 상에 달하는 전체 에스닉 헤어 케어 매출의 대략5%이다. 이 분야의 성장 은 아이들의 릴렉서 키트 판매는 하락하는 반면, 관리 유지할 제품이 증가 하기 때문이다. 아동용 제품 범주의 성장에 기여하고 있는 회사에는Shea Moisture, Taliah Waajid, African Pride and Mixed Chicks 등이 있다. 유지 보수 분야의 매출 성장에 직적접인 상관 관계는 더욱 많은 아동들이 포니 퍼프나 넓게 땋은 스타일, 두 가닥으로 꼬아서 만든two strand twist, 작게 땋는 스타일 등 네추럴 헤어 스타일을 유지하고 있기 때문이다. 익스텐션 을 이용해서 작게 땋는 스몰 브레이드나 트위스트는 스타일을 만드는데 시 간이 좀 더 걸리는 반면, 오래 지속되기 때문에 아이들의 헤어 스타일링을 위한 부모들의 지출 간격이 길어지게 된다, 유지 보수 제품은 물론 여전히 사용된다. 당신의 진열대에 소비자들이 이 범주에서 찾고 있는 제품들이 있 는지 확인하는 것은 중요하다. 엄마들은 – 아동용 제품의 주요 고객- 화학 성분이 첨가되지 않은 천연 성분의 제품으로 최대한의 엉킴 방지 효과와 컨 디셔닝, 부드러움과 보습, 광택을 줄 수 있는 쾌적한 향의 제품을 지속적으

detanglers, styling creams, holding pomades, glossers and shine products. Mothers are also looking for products that are completely natural, or products that contain the natural ingredients that they relate to, like coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, argan oil, fruits, berries and avocado oils to name a few. Time management is also key for the busy, multi-tasking customer. That’s why three-in-one and two-in-one products that simultaneously combine shampooing, conditioning and moisturizing can be a lifesaver for parents tending to natural-haired children. Offering combo packs in store that combine the products listed above will make it easy for customers to make choices in your store. There are also key times during the year that store owners should have merchandising tools (like end caps, cross merchandising children’s hair products with other categories, in-store promotions and contests) highlighted in their stores when mothers will be shopping. Cross merchandising for children’s haircare can be very effective in the OTC. There are so many other items in the store that are needed for children along with the haircare products like sleep bonnets, wide tooth combs, butter fly clips, soft brittle brush, blow dryers, flat irons and all kinds of hair accessories. The key time periods to cross merchandise these items are: Easter, Summer Camp season, Back-to-School time, and Christmas. We are now all armed with an arsenal of information about natural hair for adults and children. Through natural hair blogs, websites, social media, events and meet-up groups, knowledge and support networks are readily accessible. OTC stores need to participate and/or partner with manufacturers on these platforms to have a voice with the buying marketplace. Try having meet-up groups at your stores, blog post on your websites, and Twitter and Instagram parties on your social media platforms. This will certainly drive more traffic to your stores. As a society we all share a vested interest in limiting children’s exposure to chemicals, with an emphasis on general health and well-being. As parents desire to expose their children to less chemicals and desire more natural product offerings in all aspects of their lives, we are poised and ready in the ethnic haircare category and meeting the challenge. We will continue to develop cutting edge products for children and follow the trends that excite parents, while making these products and product education available to our OTC partners.

Roslyn C. Chapman Roslyn C. Chapman, president and CEO of The Chapman Edge, is a well-respected marketing and sales professional with a proven track record in packaged goods sales, marketing and business development. The Chapman Edge, founded in 2000, is a sales management company that specializes in selling and marketing personal care items to national retail chain accounts and wholesalers (Prison System Only). The company has worked on multicultural projects and for many years been selected as the ethnic needs category go confidant by several retailers. The Chapman Edge has evolved into not only a solid sales representative organization for health and beauty, but through her contacts across all classes of trade has expanded sales focus to include other general merchandise categories both core and closeout. It has also become necessary to study and become familiar with retailer logistics and manufacturer operations to assure full distribution channel customer service to all clients. She has traveled internationally to study retailer practices. In addition to her entrepreneurial accomplishments, Chapman served as Director of National Sales with Alberto Culver where she was employed for 15 years. The tenure with Alberto Culver was a fertile training ground that generously prepared Chapman to become a successful business manager and marketer. Prior to working with Alberto Culver, Chapman worked with Johnson Products for 6 years. As a college intern she worked with JC Penney in their corporate buying office. Chapman is a featured columnist and consults with several trade and consumer publications: Sophisticates Black Hair, MMR and Chain Drug Review. Chapman, born in Richmond Virginia still enjoys visiting her family home in Shacklefords, Va. where she has strong family ties. She is an alumnus of Hampton University.

In Chicago and nationwide she enjoys having a supportive friend, mentor and adopted family network. Pilar Sanders Pilar Sanders is an actor, mother, entrepreneur, fitness enthusiast and TV personality. One of her favorite childhood memories is delivering Christmas gifts for a charity in her native town of Elmira, N.Y. with her family. “There were 100’s of people and we would pack bags with toys and deliver them on Christmas Eve and on Christmas morning. The night air, the

snow and hot chocolate; it was a beautiful time.” Today Pilar continues that giving tradition in Sanders Claus, a charity she and her husband Deion Sanders established in Prosper, Texas. He is the famous former cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons and the colorful commentator (sometimes known as “Neon Deion”) for the National Football League (NFL) Network’s “NFL Total Access.” Pilar has joined the cast of “Football Wives” on the cable network VH-1. Together, Pilar and Deion raise five children, run several businesses, and are active in dozens of charities, all of which was captured on their hit reality show “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love” which aired on the Oxygen cable network. Sanders Claus, “The Spirit of Giving All Year Round,” bridges corporations with communities. As in Pilar’s childhood experience, the organization delivers clothes, food, toys and other items on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. But as their motto states, they keep on giving all year round. “We bring food, toiletries, clothes, hats, medical and dental needs, wheel chairs—whatever it takes. At back to school time we give away backpacks loaded with supplies,” she said. Another charity the couple works with is the Prime Time Association’s Truth football team. She and Deion founded the program that includes a summer camp for young people five through 14 years of age. In addition to football, students learn other sports including baseball and basketball. They receive tutoring in English, math and science, nutrition education and leadership courses. “Around 2,000 kids try out and 300 are accepted. It’s a tough program,” she noted. Pilar began a modeling career in high school, continued it in college, then became a professional with the famous Ford modeling agency. Her next foray was into acting. She appeared on television shows such as “Veronica’s Closet,” “The Jamie Foxx Show,” “Walker, Texas Ranger,” and LL Cool J’s “In The House,” where she met Deion. Her creative spirit continues to blossom in numerous ways. She takes joy in designing t-shirts for the Truth youth organization. She is working on several books for children and is launching a perfume line named after the couple’s daughter, Shelomi. Learn more at

representative to the Illinois House of Representatives, beginning in 1978. As a representative, she was known as an advocate for social change, working for reforms in education, government, and healthcare. In 1988, she took another challenge; she was elected recorder of deeds for Cook County, Ill., overseeing hundreds of employees as well as the public agency’s multimillion-dollar budget. First Black Woman Elected to the Senate In 1992, Moseley Braun made the leap to the national political arena: She ran for a seat in the U.S. Senate, looking to unseat incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the Democratic primary. Up against a seasoned politician who had spent decades in office, Moseley Braun appeared to be the underdog. But many responded to Moseley Braun as a chance for political change. She won the primary, but faced another tough opponent in Republican Richard Williamson. Williamson tried to capitalize on Moseley Braun’s mishandling of a tax situation. Although the scandal marred her campaign, she won the election, becoming the first African-American woman to win election to the U.S. Senate. As a senator, Moseley Braun tackled many issues, including women’s rights and civil rights. She served on several committees including the powerful Senate Finance Committee. Moseley Braun continued to support educational reforms and called for more restrictive gun control laws. Her time in office, however, was affected by claims that she misused funds from her 1992 campaign, spending the money on personal expenses. While no charges were ever filed, this allegation clung to Moseley Braun as she sought re-election in 1998.

Post-Senate Work Moseley Braun’s re-election campaign was also hindered by her Republican opponent Peter Fitzgerald. A self-financed candidate, Fitzgerald didn’t have restrictions on how much he could spend during his campaign. He won the election by a close margin. After leaving office, Moseley Braun was appointed U.S. ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa by President Bill Clinton in 1999. She left the post at the end of the Clinton Administration.

Business Tips by Walt Grassl

Education is Continuous Five Pillars to Ensure You Never Stop Learning 교육은 계속된다. - 배움을 결코 멈출 수 없는 5가지 이유


any talented people feel that they do not have anything new to learn in their chosen field. They believe what got them there is enough. Those who are determined and who work hard often spend a lot of time and effort to learn new skills and maintain their existing ones. They display the most current knowledge of new technology and ideas. Having employees who will improve themselves over and above the company-sponsored training is critical to an organization wanting to innovate and improve. Eleven years ago, Ben got a job working in the mail room at a local business during the summer before starting college. The company had been in existence for over sixty years and was currently being led by Jack—a long-time employee and company legend who started in the mailroom. Three weeks into the job, on his way from the basement to the top floor, the elevator stopped and who should enter the elevator but Jack. He smiled at Ben, introduced himself, and mentioned that he started out in the mail room. Ben was a little star struck, but as they both exited the elevator, Ben asked if Jack had any advice for him. “Never stop educating yourself,” Jack said. “In fact, come into my office and let me elaborate. I have 15 minutes before my next meeting.” Jack proceeded to share these five pillars for continued education: 1. You are responsible for your education You alone are responsible for your education. Whether or not it makes sense to invest in a formal education, there are free and for-fee learning opportunities available to everyone. The public library and the Internet are two examples. You can learn pretty much anything, if you work hard at it. 2. No entitlements Time in service should be no guarantee of advancement in a successful business. It is what one learns with his or her experience that determines the value of the service time. In other words, if you put in your time, you are guaranteed nothing. 3. You can’t rest on your laurels Many talented people feel that they do not have anything new to learn in their chosen field. They believe what got them there is enough. They become complacent.

은 재능 있는 사람들은 자신이 선택한 분야에서 배울 수 있는 새로운 것이 없다고 느낀다. 그들은 자신들이 이미 충분히 갖고 있다고 믿는다. 결심한 사람과 열심히 일하는 사람은 새로운 기술을 배우고 자신의 존재를 유지하기 위해 많은 노력과 시간을 쓴다. 그들은 신기술과 아이디어에 관한 가장 최근의 지식을 발휘한다. 스스로 향상되고 회사가 지원하는 교육 이상으로 자신을 발전시킬 직원을 보유하는 것은 혁신과 향상을 원하는 조직에서는 매우 중요하다. 11년 전, Ben은 대학교를 가기 전 여름 동안 지역의 한 회사의 우편물을 담당하는 일을 하게 되었다. 회사는 60년 이상된 곳이며, 아주 오래동안 근무해 온, 회사의 전설과도 같은 Jack 이라는 사람이 우편물실을 이끌고 있었다. 일을 시작한지 3주째, Ben은 지하에서 꼭대기층으로 올라가는 길에 엘리베이터에서 Jack을 만났다. 그는 Ben에게 웃으며 자기 소개를 했으며, 우편물실에서 맨처음 업무를 시작했다는 얘기도 했다. 두 사람은 즐겁게 대화를 나눴고, Ben은 Jack에게 조언을 부탁했다. “공부를 멈추지 마세요” Jack이 말했다. “ 내 사무실로 와요 좀 더 자세히 말해줄게요. 다음 미팅까지 15분 여유가 있어요.” Janck은 지속적인 교육을 위한 5가지 굵직한 내용들을 공유했다: 1.당신의 교육에 스스로 책임이 있다. 당신의 교육에 대한 책임은 당신 혼자가 지는 것이다. 정규 교육에 투자할 의미가 있든 없든, 누구에게나 다양한 무료 및 유료 학습 기회가 있다. 공공 도서관과 인터넷이 두가지 예이다. 당신이 열심히 한다면, 무엇이든 많은 것을 배울 수 있다. 2. 자격 없음 서비스 시간이 성공적인 사업의 발전을 보장할 수는 없다. 경험과 동반되는 지식이 서비스 시간의 가치를 결정하는 것이다. 다시 말해, 당신이 참고 기다린다면, 아무것도 보장되는 것은 없다. 3. 당신은 안주할 수 없다. 많은 재능있는 사람들은 자신이 선택한 분야에서 배울 수 있는 새로운 것이 없다고 느낀다. 그들은 자신은 이미 충분히 갖고 있다고 믿는다. 그들은 현실에 안주하게 된다. 성공을 위해 더 이상의 노력을 쏟을 필요가 없다고 생각하고 그 노력을 중지하게 된다. 당신이 목표에 도달하면, 당신의 성공을 축하하지만, 다음 목표를 정하고 실행에 옮겨야 한다. 당신이 앞으로 나가는 것을 멈추고 현실에 안주할 때, 실제로 당신은

take action. When you stop moving forward and rest on your laurels, in actuality you are falling behind all the others who continue to move forward. 4. Staying current Likewise, you need to stay current with industry trends by reading industry literature and blogs. New trends are frequently entering the workplace. You have the choice to be aware of and lead the change or try to catch up—or even worse—resisting the change. Joining industry and trade associations is another way to educate yourself on current trends. 5. New and old generation A big issue in many industries is getting several generations to work well together. Each generation has different learning and working styles. You have several options to handle this reality. The first is to do nothing, since it’s your fellow employee’s responsibility to get with the program. The higher percentage choice is to educate yourself on the differences between generations, the issues these differences bring to the workplace and some things others are doing to address them. You can use this information to change how you interact and to the extent you can help your company improve their processes. Ben took Jack’s advice to heart. After graduating from college, he got a job with another company in another field. His education did not stop when he left school. He subscribes to industry and management blogs, has joined his industry association and seeks out challenging assignments and develops relationships with other successful employees at his company. He has been identified by his management as a high-potential employee and is one of the youngest employees at his level. Ben’s future is bright. Amazing what a chance encounter in an elevator can do.

끊임없이 앞으로 나가고 있는 다른 모든 사람들로부터 뒤쳐지고 있는 것이다. 4. 현재를 유지하라. 마찬가지로, 업계 문학이나 블로그를 읽으면서 업계 최신 동향을 유지할 필요가 있다. 새로운 트랜드가 자주 들어오고 있다. 당신은 그것을 인식하고 변화를 이끌거나 그것을 따라 잡기 위해 시도하거나 – 혹은 변화에 저항할 수도 있는- 선택의 여지를 갖게 된다. 업계나 무역 협회에 가입하는 것은 현재 추세를 유지할 수 있는 또 다른 교육 방법이다. 5. 신구 세대 많은 산업 분야에서 큰 이슈는 다양한 세대들이 함께 잘 일해나가는 것이다. 각 세대는 다른 교육과 작업 스타일을 갖고 있다. 이런 현실을 처리할 수 있는 몇 가지 옵션이 있다. 첫번째는 아무것도 하지 않는 것이다, 프로그램을 얻는 것은 당신의 동료 직원의 책임이기 때문이다. 높은 비율의 선택은 세대간의 차이와 이런 차이들이 직장에 가져오는 문제들을 스스로 공부하는 것이다. 당신은 그러한 정보들을 상호 작용하는 방법을 변경하는데 이용할 수가 있고, 회사의 작업 개선에도 도움이 될 것이다. Ben은 Jack의 충고를 따랐다. 대학 졸업 후, 그는 다른 분야의 회사에서 일을 하게 되었다. 그의 교육은 학교를 떠난 후에도 멈추지 않았다. 그는 업계와 관리 블로그를 구독했고, 산업 협회에 가입하고 회사의 다른 성공한 직원들과의 관계를 발전시키고 도전적인 과제를 찾았다. 그는 상사들로부터 높은 잠재력을 가진 직원으로 인식되고 있으며, 같은 레벨 직원 중 최연소이다. Ben의 미래는 밝다. 엘리베이터에서의 우연한 만남이 놀라운 일을 해낸 것이다.

C hildren ’ s P roducts What’s the Best Way to Move Them? 아동용 제품 - 그들을 움직일 수 있는 최고의 방법은 무엇일까? Children’s products are tricky because mothers can be unreasonable with their expectations. Also, consumers tend to hear what they want to hear and not always exactly what you are saying to them. As a rule most consumers do not read or follow the instructions provided by the manufacturers and will never accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong during the application of a product. As the store you want to position yourself so that the consumer can be easily directed to the manufacturer. The manufacturer is better prepared to respond to questions regarding application than you are as the store. 50

OTC Beauty Magazine April 2015

아동용 제품은 엄마들의 기대와는 어긋날 수 있기 때문에 까다롭다. 또한, 소비자들은 당신이 그들에게 말하는 것을 항상 정확히 듣는 것이 아니라, 자신들이 원하는 것을 들으려는 경향이 있다. 일반적으로, 대부분의 소비자들은 제조사에서 제공하는 지침을 읽거나 따르지 않으며, 제품 사용 도중 잘못되는 어떤 것에도 책임지지 않을 것이다. 매장의 입장에서, 당신은 소비자들이 제조업체의 지시 사항을 쉽게 따르게 할 수 있는 자신의 위치를 원한다. 제조업체는 제품 사용에 관한 질문에 있어서 매장으로서의 당신보다 더욱 잘 응답할 준비가 되어 있다. 매장의 입장에서, 당신은 “안전 지대” 안에 있길 원한다. 내가 말하는 “

You want to gently direct them to their choices, but allow them to make the decision.

As the store you want to stay in the “safety zone.” What I mean by the “safety zone” is be informative, but non-committal; don’t commit to any one item. As the store you “only carry quality items” that you are comfortable offering to your consumer, but a person’s likes or dislikes are subjective and individual in nature. A consumer who likes one item may not like another; that is why it is best for a consumer to try an item to make that very personal decision as to like or dislike. Keep the decision in the hands of the consumer so he or she can’t blame your store if they have a problem. It is best to work with your manufacturers to get the product information that will allow you to push product, but leave the decision to the parent. Because you sell products from multiple manufacturers you don’t want to be in a position where you are promoting one over the other. Additionally, if you push one product over another and your consumer has a problem, he or she will blame you for recommending the product. Now, how do you recommend a product without recommending a product? Here are a few ways… • Ask your consumer when he or she enters the store what they are looking for and what style they are trying to achieve. This will allow you to take them to the appropriate section where those items are located. • In your kid’s section have an area where you provide information on styling kids hair. You can get this information from your manufacturers. Ask the manufacturers to provide you with handouts that take the consumer step by step to achieve a certain hair style. Show your consumer the section and let them see what they will need. You should then also be able to sell them other items like combs, brushes, hair bows or ties. • Know the generic function of each of the items you carry. Let the consumer decide if the product benefits listed on the item is what they are looking for, but you should tell them what the item does and be able to show them others that have the same generic function for them to choose from. • Tell your consumer the decision of liking a product is a matter of personal preference and that what one person likes, another may not. It is usually better to try a product to decide if they like it or if it will do what they are looking for it to achieve. That will sometimes get them to stop pushing you to tell them which item to buy. • You want to gently direct them to their choices, but allow them to make the decision. You can point out what each manufacturer states are the benefits of the products and any differences that you are aware of, but be sure to point out the many options for products that you offer and encourage them to try various products until they find the ones that work for the style they are trying to achieve. Point out to your consumer that you offer many options for hair care products and that you want to be their first choice when shopping for hair care and beauty items.

Natural Beauty by Brandie Gilliam

Why Natural Hair Products? Organic Beauty Talk founder, Brandie Gilliam, shares on the importance of hair care ingredients and her own hair journey.


hen asked the question “why natural hair products?” my answer is always the same, “why not?” If you have the option between two different products that both claim to give you the same result, but one is potentially harmful and the other beneficial to your health, then it seems like a no-brainer to go with the better-for-you option every time. Fourteen years ago, I had no idea about the harmful ingredients in products, reading product ingredient labels or using natural hair care products. I didn’t grow up in a home of tree huggers, organic lovers or even recyclers. I was simply asked by a family friend one day if I knew what was in my personal care products. And I didn’t. I had never even thought of it before and no one had ever told me to do so. Feeling empowered after our conversation, I immediately took this new-found knowledge along with a list of ingredients to avoid and began checking all of my products. I have continued doing so since and my hair has never looked or felt better. “It’s the Wild West when it comes to the safety of cosmetics and personal care products that we use on our skin every day, because they are among the least regulated consumer products on the market. It’s up to individuals to learn how to choose safe cosmetics. For example, you may think you’re using a gentle or ‘natural’ shampoo, but many companies use toxic chemicals, including those that are linked to cancer and hormone disruptions, in shampoos, conditioners, and other hair

care products,” says Margie Kelly of the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics. Stay away from ingredients in your hair care products like Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) that may cause skin irritation and damage the immune system as well as Propylene Glycol (PG) that may cause brain, liver and kidney abnormalities. Also, steer clear of artificial colors which can cause skin rashes, hyperpigmentation and other sensitivities. “Less is more,” says Nneka Leiba, Environmental Working Group (EWG) Deputy Director of Research. “We always advise consumers to look for haircare products with fewer ingredients and avoid products with parabens—these chemicals have been strongly linked to endocrine disruption. Consumers should also stay clear from Keratin treatments. Most have high levels of formaldehyde, which has been classified by the U.S. government as a known human carcinogen. EWG’s Skin Deep cosmetics and personal care database is a great resource to find safer haircare products.” So what’s in my own personal hair care bag? Safe and effective natural products that include my latest obsession, Alba Botanica® Hawaiian Anti-Frizz Serum. Remember, know what’s in your products if you truly want healthier, stronger, shinier and more beautiful hair.

Notes From the

Natural Nation by ReGia Davis

Young Naturals:

Even the youngest OTC customers need the best beauty products to be prepared to hit the school hallways in style each day. As the saying goes, there is no fool proof manual that comes with raising children. The same can be said for their personal care and maintenance. We often seek out information and go by trial and error. There are many decisions that can go into adolescent personal care. It is already a challenge making product and beauty care decisions for yourself; the task of selecting just the right products for children can be a huge task. Parents often have a myriad of questions and concerns when it comes to selecting just the right products to maintain their children’s hair. There are some key points that every retailer should know when suggesting hair care products for kids. According to Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Cosmetics Database kids are exposed to more contaminants in air, water, food and personal care products than adults. Immature organ systems are often less capable of fending of chemical assaults. Subtle damage to developing bodies may lead to disease later in life. This research explains why it is imperative for parents to know what products are being put in their kid’s hair. When parents walk into the store and ask for quality children’s hair products, remember you are selling products for a child, not an adult. It is recommended not to sell products for kids with the following ingredients: Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate, Parabens, Petroleum and Mineral Oil, Propylene Glycol, and Formaldehyde. A child whose hair is in style each and every day starts with the proper care and maintenance. How a parent cares for their kid’s hair all depends on the type of hair they have, their lifestyle and how they style their kid’s hair. Natural hair can be more coarse, curly and kinky than most other types of hair which contain less water and is more prone to breakage. Taking the extra time to learn what products and regimens work best for kid’s natural hair will save you less customer fuss and complaints. Here are some top “must have” products and regimens every young natural head of hair needs: Shampoo, Conditioner, The LOC Method, Moisturizer, and Accessories.




4. 5.

Shampoo - Make sure to avoid recommending shampoos with alcohol and sodium lauryl or laureth sulfate which strip the hair of its natural oils and dries it out. Natural hair tends to dry out and break easier so it is important to not wash too much. Parents can use a clarifying shampoo once every four to six weeks to remove build-up of products in the hair. Conditioner - Recommend using a conditioner after shampooing to add moisture back into the hair. Natural hair needs moisture. In between shampooing hair, conditioner can be used to co-wash the hair so that the hair’s natural oils aren’t stripped. a. Deep Conditioner - Deep conditioner can be used interchangeably with a regular conditioner. A child’s hair can be conditioned as little as once a month, every two weeks or even every week. It depends on the hair type. Once the deep conditioner is applied, cover the hair with a shower cap and let it sit for about 30 minutes to one hour and rinse. LOC Methoda. Leave-In Conditioner - Using a leave-in conditioner is important because it closes the cuticles of your hair shaft. It ensures all the nutrients and moisture you added does not escape, leaving the hair soft and alleviates breakage from dry hair. b. Oil - Oil seals in all the moisture that has been added to the hair. Apply a thin layer to the hair and make sure to apply to ends. The ends of the hair need the most moisture being that that hair is the oldest and is most prone to breakage. c. Cream - Apply a cream to seal the moisture and set protective styles such as ponytails, twists, braids, flat twists and cornrows. Moisturizer - Use on a daily basis. It is good to use a moisturizer to keep your hair moisturized, soft and manageable in between washes. Accessories - Hairstyles can add personality and style by simply adding headbands, sock buns, beads and ribbons.

Kids will soon be out of school and ready to go on vacation, go swimming and enjoy their summer in the sun. These products and regimens can be recommended to parents year-round to ensure healthy, moisturized and stylish hair. The more you know about natural hair maintenance, the easier it will be to recommend and upsell additional items to consumers shopping for the entire family.

I tried not to think about work. However I wondered how are consumers going to get to the Beauty Supply Store?



Vacation Juno, Neptune and Octavia with

How OTC Stores can Overcome Weather Challenges


day week in Atlanta, Ga. I was running my usual errands. Occasionally checking out the news and sometimes the weather channel. I kept an eye on the developing weather in Boston Mass.—I was heading that way to spend a few days in a preplanned trip on a non-refundable airline ticket. It was sixty degrees when I left Atlanta so I traveled without a winter jacket or coat even though I was heading to Boston; I have a residence there so there was no need for a jacket as I had winter clothing for my arrival. Juno (the winter storm) was waiting for me; she had dropped four feet of snow in Boston. The flight was uneventful: Meaning I slept all the way, periodically waking to ask fellow travellers if I had snored too loudly or talked in my sleep giving away family secrets. You know you just can’t be too careful these days; you may let your pin slip out between naps and find you have been cleaned out when you check your bank balances. Convinced I had not spilled any family secrets, pins or security codes I resumed napping at thirty six thousand feet. Just as I was midway into a dream of winning the five hundred million dollar power ball lottery jackpot the captain interrupted, “We are approaching Boston. Can you please power down laptop computers, tray tables up and check the security of your seat belt. Flight attendants will be collecting any refuse you want to throw away in preparation for landing.” Darn I almost had the check in my hand. Maybe next dream… Out of Sight, Not Out of Mind I had nine days of freedom from the office. My boss told me “disconnect from work all the way. Only check emails every third day. Enjoy yourself.” I took that as an order and proceeded to do nothing really… sleep in, stay up late, etc. I could not go outside except to shovel snow, The jet way exiting the plane to the arrival gate is a moment of truth when you travel between extremes in temperature. One step off the plane and I was ready to re-board and fly back to the ATL. Family retrieved me and I headed home. Traveling next to snow/slush piles anywhere from four to eight feet on the expressway was un-nerving. When we arrived home I was shell shocked. Instead of rolling around on a sandy beach, I was greeted by four feet of snow in the front yard. I know because the fence around the front yard is four feet high and it was covered. The back yard looked like Aspen or Nagano. I did not have to think about work. Disconnect those were orders right? Winter Storm Neptune dropped another three inches while we slept. Saturday, the noon news told area Catholics the Diocese said they were forgiven for not attending Sunday Mass. Oh my goodness! I had never heard an announcement like that before. Then it dawned on me: The meteorologist (weatherman) said, “Don’t leave the house if you don’t have to. Only emergency vehicles on the road please. If travel is not essential please stay home.” I tried not to think about work. However I wondered how are consumers going to get to the Beauty Supply Store? Weather Affects Customers Emergency weather permits some different kinds of behaviors, like consumers emptying the grocer’s shelves of milk, bread, eggs, and junk food. You get my point right? As soon as the weather man (meteorologist) predicts really bad weather a run begins on the grocery store, liquor store, and Redbox for movies. But no one stocks up on beauty supplies during bad weather and OTCs are left without sales. Bad weather is not good for beauty business. When consumers are warned to stay indoors, they don’t go out for a bottle of shampoo, or conditioner. Not even wig spray. I just hope that they have Bump Patrol at home; Bump Patrol Face Moisturizer is good for wintertime skin. (A shameless plug.) Oh, there I go again thinking about business when I’m supposed to be on vacation. Disconnect that’s what I was instructed, but what am I supposed to do when I’m stranded in an airport hundreds of miles from home, for over twenty-four hours on my return to the Sunny South? Thanks to Winter Storm Octavia for grounding over 500 flights from Charlotte, NC (my layover on the way back to Atlanta). Well I chose to share with you. OTC get digital, let your consumers know that bad weather does not mean they have to do without hair products. Let them order online. Pizza hut does it; the big box stores do it. Winter times are not going away. There are going to be more snow emergencies, and other seasons also bring about their own challenges. Capture contact information with your consumers, Tweet your specials to them, Facebook them, and let them know you are ready to serve them whether they come in the store or not. They are your customers. They need you and you need them. Oh and in the words of Annie, “The sun will come out tomorrow.” Anyone wishing to join a class action suit against the ground hog for six more weeks of winter please let me know. Also I am suing Jack Frost, Frosty the Snowman, Ol’Man Winter, The North Wind, Nor Easter, Siberian Express, and Elsa, the mastermind who sang “Let it Go” and started this whole mess anyway. OTC, get digital.

Research and Development

OTC Beauty Magazine (OTC): What is Clear Essence founded on as a company? Please briefly explain its history. Renae Tate (RT): Clear Essence skincare products was founded on creating an all-over the body skincare line for people of African descent who previously relied solely on mainstream market products for their beauty regimens. Dr. Iheatu Obioha, the founder and President of Bluefield Associates, Inc., discovered that products in the market did not adequately treat issues that plague darker skin tones such as hyperpigmentation, dark spots, excessive oiliness, dry patches, and razor bumps. Dr. Obioha consulted with some of Europe’s dermatologists and chemists to determine and categorize the primary skin concerns of dark skin tones and created the Clear Essence brand in 1992. Within the last 20 years, the Clear Essence® company has grown to 20 SKU’s and is distributed in over 20 African countries, 7 European countries, and 500 beauty supply stores in North America. The brand is now globally recognized for reliable and effective products and has increased its original demographic to be more multi-cultural to include Asians, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and even Caucasians who also use the products to remove sun discolorations and age spots. OTC: Describe the goods that make up your product portfolio. What makes them distinctive and different from others that are similar in the industry? RT: Clear Essence is a complete skincare line comprised of cleansing soap bars, creams, lotions, gels and body oils for all skin types; oily, normal, dry, and sensitive. The brand also includes products for women, men and babies. What makes Clear Essence distinct is our commitment to producing effective, fast acting and inclusive skincare products. We are always improving our products to be more appealing to customers while delivering the best results possible. Just recently we added SPF 15 versions of our two most popular products, our Skin Beautifying Milk and Medicated Fade Crème. Developing a two-in-one product has been a huge convenience for our customers. We also noticed a lot of individuals with sensitivity skin care concerns and a trend in using natural skin care ingredients. From this research we developed the Lemon Plus Vitamin C line, Sensitive line and My Natural Beauty Skin Tone line. These product additions and adaptions to the growing beauty industry really makes the Clear Essence brand unique as it continues to serve all skin tones, types and individual preferences. OTC: Who makes up the consumer base of Clear Essence? RT: Clear Essence skincare products are for everyone as everyone looks to achieve toned skin. But we notice a large number of consumers are multicultural or have darker skin tones and are facing the skin care concerns we treat. We’ve really noticed a growing concern in people wanting an even skin tone on the face and all over the body. This desire crosses all ethnicities, genders and regions. Clear Essence is a global brand growing with new customers every day! OTC: Do you have any product offerings that were created with children specifically in mind? If so, please explain. RT: Yes! Clear Essence developed its Baby line with babies’ sensitive and delicate skin in mind. Our dedicated herbalists, botanists and baby skin care specialists created our organic baby skin care line to again meet a specific demand in the beauty

OTC: 뷰티 매거진 (OTC): Clear Essence라는 회사는 어떻게 설립되었습니까? 간략한 역사를 말씀해주세요. Renae Tate (RT): Clear Essence 스킨 케어 제품은 자신들의 피부 미용 관리를 위해 전적으로 주류 시장 제품에 의존해 온 흑인들을 위한 바디 스킨 케어 라인을 생산하는데 기반을 두었습니다. Bluefield Associates, Inc 의 설립자이자 대표인 Dr. Iheatu Obioha 는 색소 침착이나 다크 스팟, 과도한 피지, 버짐이나 면도기 상처처럼 피부톤을 어둡게 만드는 문제를 적절히 치료하지 못하는 제품들을 발견했습니다. Dr. Obioha는 어두운 피부톤을 주요 피부 문제로 분류하고 유럽의 피부전문의 및 화학자들과 논의한 후, 1992년 Clear Essence라는 브랜드를 만들었습니다. 지난 20 년 동안, Clear Essence®사는 20 SKU로 성장했으며 아프리카 20개국과 유럽 7개국, 북미 지역 500 뷰티 매장에 납품하고 있습니다. 브랜드는 이제 국제적으로 신뢰성을 인정받고 있으며, 제품 효과의 인식은 흑인 뿐 아니라, 아시안, 히스패닉, 중동지역 심지어 자외선으로 인한 착색이나 에이지 스팟 개선 제품을 사용하는 백인들 사이에서도 증가하고 있습니다. OTC: 제품 포트폴리오를 구성하는 아이템들을 설명해 주세요. 업계의 유사한 제품과 구별되는 차이점은 무엇입니까? RT: Clear Essence는 모든 피부 타입, 지성, 정상, 건성, 민감성을 위한 클렌징 비누와 크림, 젤, 바디 오일로 구성되는 완전한 스킨 케어 라인입니다. 브랜드는 또한 여성용, 남성용 그리고 아기용 제품들을 포함하고 있습니다. Clear Essence가 차별화되는 이유는 효과적이고 실제로 작용하는 포괄적인 스킨 케어 제품을 생산하겠다는 저희의 약속때문입니다. 저희는 소비자들에게 가능한 최대의 결과를 제공하기 위해 항상 제품을 개선하고 있습니다. 가장 최근에는 SPF15 기능이 있는 2가지 가장 인기있는 제품, Skin Beautifying Milk 와 Medicated Fade Crème을 출시했습니다. 2-in-1 제품 개발은 고객들이 아주 편리하게 여기고 있습니다. 또한 민감한 피부 관리로 고민하는 사람들이 많이 있으며, 천연 스킨 케어 성분이 함유되는 제품 트랜드도 인식하고 있습니다. 이런 조사를 바탕으로Lemon Plus Vitamin C line, Sensitive line, My Natural Beauty Skin Tone line을 개발했습니다. 성장하고 있는 뷰티 산업 분야에 이러한 제품들을 채택되고 추가하는 것은 모든 타입의 피부톤과 개인적인 취향을 고려하고 있는 Clear Essence 브랜드를 더욱 고유하게 만들고 있습니다. OTC: Clear Essence의 소비자 기반은 어떻게 구성됩니까? RT: Clear Essence스킨 케어 제품은 밝은 피부톤을 원하는 모든 사람들을 위한 것입니다. 그러나 많은 소비자들이 다문화 인종이며 어두운 스킨톤을 갖고 있고 저희 제품이 치료할 수 있는 피부 문제들로 고심하고 있다는 것을 알고 있습니다. 얼굴은 물론 바디 전체적으로 고른 피부 톤을 갖고자하는 사람들이 점차 많아지고 있다는 것을 인식하고 있습니다. 이런 욕구는 모든 인종과 성별, 지역을 아우르고 있습니다. Clear Essence는 매일 새로운 고객들과 함께 성장하는 글로벌 브랜드입니다! OTC: 특별히 어린이들을 염두하여 만든 제품이 있습니까? 그렇다면 설명부탁드립니다 RT: 네! Clear Essence는 아기들의 민감하고 섬세한 피부를 배려한 베이비 라인을 개발했습니다. 저희 허브 및 식물 전문가들과 베이비 스킨 케어 전문가들이 뷰티 산업에서의 특정 수요층을 겨냥한 유기농 베이비 스킨 케어 라인을 만들었습니다. 저희 베이비 스킨 케어 제품 라인은 세정, 진정, 보습, 보호 효과가 있는 베이비 비누, 오일, 로션 그리고 베이비 워시로 구성되는데, 아기의 피부를 이전보다 더 건강하고 보송보송하게 만들어주는 제품들입니다. 베이비 스킨 케어 라인은 부드러운 향이 첨가되어 있으며 아기의 머리부터 발끝까지 바디 전체를 위한 더욱 완벽한 성분의 효능을 제공합니다!

The baby skin care line blends soft scents with unique benefits that offer a more complete regimen for babies from the top of their curls to the tiniest little toe! OTC: Where does inspiration come from when new products are created? What signals a need for a new innovation? RT: Current trends and customer comments often help us learn what products are still needed in the general market. We listen closely to trends in the industry and what issues are most concerning to the public at the moment. Natural skincare, sun protection, skin cancer and an awareness of beauty ingredients have all sparked new product creations. We also listen to customer feedback and adapt to comments and critiques. We’ve improved our formulations to include more appealing fragrances and better, high-end ingredients all while keeping in mind different skin types to craft a series of products that are perfected and clinically proven to be safe and effective. OTC: What form of product promotion do you believe works best in OTC stores? Why? RT: We are constantly giving support to our OTC stores by providing samples for customer testing and hosting in-store promotions to give product recommendations and skin care education to customers. Many people avoid skin care all together due to the overwhelming amount of products in the market and the fear of trying new skin care regimens due to past experiences of sensitivities to ingredients/products. Clear Essence also provides product training to our store owners, managers and sales representatives to help the retail process. In our experience the best promotion is to get a physical sample in the customers’ hands to try for themselves! OTC: What trend have you seen grow the most recently in your sector of the beauty business and how is the company meeting consumer demand for it? RT: The most recent concern and trend in the skin care industry is natural and organic products. More customers are becoming aware of ingredients and their effects on the body. “Paraben-free”, “no sulfates” and other terms are popping up on labels and advertisements throughout the market. Clear Essence developed the My Natural Beauty Skin Tone line, which is comprised of all natural ingredients and features products to maintain and protect the skin. The line is comprised of our Carrot Oil and Olive Oil Soap bars to cleanse and exfoliate, the My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 15 to moisturize and protect the skin from environmental damage, the Specialist Oil to hydrate skin and soften the appearance of discolorations and stretch marks, and our new Olive Oil Body Crème to serve as a concentrated body butter for hydrating dull, dry skin. OTC: What is Clear Essence doing to ensure excellent customer service to OTC retailers? How can these store owners benefit from working with you? RT: Clear Essence provides OTC stores with any means possible to sell the product to the store’s customers. We provide products samples and product training to staff, and can arrange to set up in-store demonstrations to give customers recommendations and skin care education. We also send our sales representatives out regularly for merchandising to check for expired goods, deliver point-ofpurchase materials and answer any concerns of the store managers. Stores can feel confident carrying Clear Essence products as they can always contact our offices for assistance in sales. OTC: What sort of feedback have you received from store owners who sell your products and their customers who use them? RT: Many stores that carry Clear Essence are very pleased with the line and say that it is one of the best skin care products selling in their store. We get many comments that there are loyal customers that only purchase Clear Essence skincare products due to proven results. As a 20-year leader in skin care products, we have developed a loyal clientele and respect amongst our retail sellers. OTC: What do you feel is the most important thing for multicultural beauty store owners to know when recommending your company’s products to their customers? RT: When recommending Clear Essence products the most important thing to know is the customer’s skin type and the skin care concern they are looking to treat. Customers who say they didn’t see results most often aren’t using the product suited for their skin type, weren’t consistent with use, or did not use sunscreen to prevent 62

OTC: 신제품 개발에 대한 영감은 어디서 얻으십니까? 새로운 혁신이 요구된다는 신호는 무엇입니까? RT: 현재 트랜드와 고객의 의견은 종종 어떤 제품들이 시장에서 아직 필요로하는지를 저희에게 알려줍니다. 저희는 업계의 트랜드와 현재 대중들이 가장 관심을 갖는 이슈에 귀를 기울입니다. 천연 스킨케어, 자외선 차단, 피부암, 그리고 뷰티 성분의 인식은 새로운 제품 제작을 위한 촉매가 됩니다. 또한 저희는 고객의 의견을 듣고 그들의 평가와 비판을 수용합니다. 임상적으로 안전하고 효과가 입증된 제품 시리즈를 만들기 위해 각기 다른 피부 타입을 고려하여 더욱 좋은 성분과 매력적인 향기로 제조 공법을 개선하고 있습니다. OTC: OTC 매장에서 가장 효과적이라고 생각하는 제품 홍보 방법은 무엇이며 그이유는? RT: 저희는 고객들이 테스트할 수 있는 샘플들을 OTC 매장에 지속적으로 지원하고 있으며, 고객들에게 제품을 권유하고 스킨 케어 교육을 제공할 수 있는 매장 내 프로모션 개최도 지원합니다. 시장에는 너무도 많은 제품들이 쏟아져나와 있고 과거에 새로운 제품 성분이나 제품에 대한 민감한 경험으로 인해 새로운 스킨 케어 제품을 시도하는 것을 두려워하는 사람들이 많습니다. Clear Essence는 매장 주인과 매니저, 그리고 판매 담당자들의 원활한 제품 판매를 위해 제품 교육을 실시합니다. 저희 경험상 최고의 홍보는 고객들이 직접 사용할 수있도록 실제 샘플을 나눠주는 것입니다! OTC: 뷰티 산업 중 귀하의 분야에서 가장 최근 성장하고 있는 트랜드는 무엇이며 회사는 소비자들의 요구를 충족하기 위해서 어떤 노력을 하고 있습니까? RT: 스킨 케어 업계의 최근 가장 큰 관심과 경향은 천연 및 유기농 제품입니다. 대부분의 소비자들은 제품의 성분과 몸에 미치는 영향을 인식하고 있습니다. “파라벤 무첨가”, “ 황산염 무첨가”, 그 외 다른 용어들이 제품 라벨과 시장 광고에 나타나고 있습니다. Clear Essence가 개발한My Natural Beauty Skin Tone line은 모두 천연 성분으로 구성되어 있어서 피부를 관리하고 보호하는데 탁월한 제품입니다. 이 라인은 세정과 각질 제거 기능을 갖춘 Carrot Oil 과Olive Oil Soap bars, 피부에 보습을 주고 외부 환경 손상으로부터 피부를 보호하는 SPF15 My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Lotion, 피부의 수분을 공급하고 색소 침착이나 스트레치 마크를 완화시켜주는 Specialist Oil, 건조한 피부에 집중적으로 수분을 공급하는 바디 버터인Olive Oil Body Crème으로 구성됩니다. OTC: OTC 매장에 탁월한 고객 서비스를 보장하기 위해 Clear Essence는 어떤 노력을 기울이고 있습니까? 매장들이 귀사와 일을 함으로써 어떤 혜택을 누릴 수 있을까요? RT: Clear Essence는 OTC 매장이 고객들에게 제품을 판매할 수 있는 모든 가능성을 제공합니다. 저희는 제품 샘플과 직원 대상 제품 교육을 제공해서, 고객들에게 제품을 확실히 권유할 수 있고 스킨 케어에 관해 교육할 수 있도록 매장 내 시연 행사 설치를 돕습니다. 또한 저희 판매 담당자를 정기적으로 방문시켜서 제품의 유통 기한을 확인하고 POP 자료들을 전달하며 매장 매니저들의 고민 사항에 답변을 제시합니다. 저희Clear Essence 제품을 취급하는 매장들은 자신감을 갖게 될 것이며, 판매에 관한 문의를 위해서 언제든 저희 사무실과 연락할 수 있습니다. 다. OTC: 귀사의 제품을 판매하는 매장이나 제품을 사용하는 소비자들로부터 어떤 종류의 피드백을 얻습니까? RT: Clear Essence 제품을 취급하는 많은 매장들은 제품 라인에 대단히 만족하며 매장에서 가장 잘 판매되고 있는 스킨 케어 제품 중 하나라고 말합니다. Clear Essence 제품의 입증된 효능때문에 오직 저희 제품만 사용한다는 충성도 높은 고객들이 있다는 의견을 많이 듣습니다. 스킨 케어 제품 분야에서 20년간 리더로 있으면서, 저희는 소매업체 사이에서 충성스러운 고객과 존중을 쌓아왔습니다. OTC: 다문화 뷰티 매장 주인들이 귀사의 제품을 고객들에게 권유할 때 가장 중요한 것은 무엇이라고 생각하십니까? RT: Clear Essence제품을 권유할 때 알아야 할 가장 중요한 것은 고객의 피부 타입과 그들이 치료를 원하는 피부 문제입니다. 제품에 대해 그다지 좋은 결과를 보지 못했다고 말하는 고객들의 대부분은 자신의 피부 타입에 맞는 제품을 사용하지 않았거나, 지속적으로 사용하지 않았거나, 색소 침착 부위가 다시 어둡게 변하는 것을 방지하기 위해 자외선 차단제를 사용하지 않았기 때문이죠. 기억하세요: 지성 피부 타입은 젤이나 세럼을 사용해야 하지만, 건성 피부 타입은 크림이나 로션을 사용해야 합니다. OTC: 회사의 원동력 역할을 하는 중심적인 믿음이 있습니까? 그렇다면, 말씀 부탁드립니다. RT: Clear Essence의 중심적인 믿음은 “진정한 당신이 모습으로, 빛나라” 라는 저희 슬로건입니다. 모든 피부톤과 타입이 아름답다고 믿습니다. 불행히도, 미의 기준을 달성하기 위해 메이크업과 성형 수술에 너무도 크게 의존하고 있습니다. Clear Essence는 올바른 스킨 케어 관리 요법과 제품들을 믿으며, 누구든 파운데이션이나 컨실러로 커버하지 않고도 자신이 원하는 피부톤과 아름다움을 얻을 수 있습니다. OTC: 귀사가 매년 참석하는 박람회는 무엇이며, 이를 통해 비즈니스에 어떤 혜택을 얻습니까? RT: Clear Essence는 주로 저희 유통업체의 세일즈 및 창고 쇼에 초점을 두고 있습니다. 이런 쇼들을 통해 회사는 한 이벤트에서 저희의 특정 미용 재료 매장 주인과 매니저들을

re-darkening of any discolorations. Just remember: oily skin types should use a gel or a serum while dry skin types should use a crème or lotion. OTC: Is there a central belief that serves as the driving force behind the company? Please explain. RT: A central belief for Clear Essence is evident in our tagline “Let the Real You, Shine Through.” We believe that all skin tones and types are beautiful. Unfortunately, heavy reliance is placed on make-up and plastic surgery to achieve standards of beauty. At Clear Essence we believe with the right skin care regimen and products, anyone can achieve beauty and their desired skin complexion without covering up with foundation or concealer. OTC: What tradeshows do you attend each year and how do they benefit the business? RT: Clear Essence mostly focuses on our distributors’ sale and warehouse shows. These benefit our company much more than tradeshows as we can meet with our specific beauty supply storeowners and managers at one event. OTC: What is the most important thing for store owners and consumers to know about skin care? RT: Skin care needs are not the same for everyone. As mentioned, Clear Essence produces products tailored to specific skin types with sensitivities to ingredients in mind. Although skin care can sometimes be a lot of trial and error, education on skin types and products suited for specific skin care problems can save time and damage to one’s skin. OTC: In your opinion, what makes the beauty industry so unique and exciting? RT: In this day and age, so much focus is placed on our looks. While we are all aware that this is not the most important factor in a human being, everyone is searching for the products to achieve their desired image. The industry is always changing and new tips, products, and trends are springing up every day. To adapt and learn about the new standards in the industry is challenging, but always interesting and fun!

OTC: 피부 관리에 관해 매장 주인들과 소비자들이 알아야할 가장 중요한 것은 무엇일까요? RT: 피부 관리에 필요한 요구 사항은 모두에게 동일하지 않습니다. 이미 언급한 바와 같이, Clear Essence는 성분에 대한 민감도를 염두하여 특정 피부 타입에 맞는 제품을 생산합니다. 비록 스킨 케어에 있어서 때때로 많은 시행착오를 겪을 수도 있지만, 특정한 스킨 케어 문제에 적합한 피부 타입과 제품에 대한 교육은 피부 손상과 시간을 절약할 수 있습니다. OTC: 귀하의 견해로, 무엇이 미용업계를 더욱 독특하고 흥미롭게 만든다고 생각하십니까? RT: 이 시대에는, 외모에 너무도 많은 초점이 맞춰집니다. 외모가 인간으로서 가장 중요한 요건은 아니라는 것을 우리 모두는 알고 있지만, 모두가 자신이 원하는 이미지를 얻을 수 있는 제품들을 찾고 있습니다. 업계는 항상 변화하고 있고, 새로운 조언과 제품들, 트랜드들이 매일 쏟아져 나옵니다. 업계의 새로운 기준을 배우고 채택하는 것은 도전이지만, 항상 흥미롭고 재미있습니다! OTC: 2015년 큰 계획을 갖고 계신지요? 더 많은 것을 배울 수 있어서 기쁘게 생각합니다 RT: 2015년은Clear Essence에게는 아주 큰 한 해가 될 것으로 예상됩니다. 이미 형성된 기존 고객층의 지속적인 성장을 위해 다른 매체들을 통해 저희가 더 많은 마케팅 이벤트와 광고에 참여할 것을 기대하셔도 좋습니다. 2015년이 시작되면서 이미 YouTube의 여러 채널과Today’s Black Women Style Report에도 저희의 모습을 나타냈습니다. 새로운 고객이Clear Essence스킨케어 제품에 관해 문의해도 놀라지 마세요!

OTC: Are there any big plans for 2015 that you can share? We’re excited to learn more! RT: 2015 is expected to be a big year for Clear Essence. Stores can expect us to participate in a lot of marketing events and advertise within different mediums to continue to grow our already stable customer base. We’ve already been featured on several YouTube channels and within Today’s Black Women Style Report during the beginning of 2015. Don’t be surprised if new customers start asking about Clear Essence skincare products!

CLIPPER TIPS Revisiting Classic Barber Traditions Sponsored by Andis Co.

Today, more men are looking for upgraded services during their regular visits to the barbershop. As a result, traditional barbering tools other than clippers are comforting signs to patrons looking for this high-touch service. For example, I was recently styling on set for a film and a patron who had an option of choosing between two barbers picked me because of the Andis RAZR hot lather machine and a straight razor sitting on my station. He was comforted because those tools communicated I could deliver more than just a basic haircut. Herbal hot towel treatments, classic 14-stroke razor facial shaves and razor shaved napes are telltale signs of a traditional barbershop. The good thing is, these classic barber traditions are seeing a resurgence but with a twist of modern technology. Andis has launched a new quality tool for barbers—the RAZR Pro Lather machine. It transforms cold shaving soap into a rich, hot lather to help deliver the ultimate shave the customer is after. As the younger generation of barbers realizes that these classic barber traditions can help them increase their rates and improve client retention, tools such as the Andis RAZR Pro Lather machine become a must. Most modern and traditional men’s styles are all finished with a razor-close shave to either or both the client’s temples or nape. Using a hot lather machine to aid in client comfort during the shaving process is a better alternative than using cold shaving cream from a bottle or even an electric shaving option. Hot lather aids in softening each hair shaft, moisturizing the skin and opening the pores of the skin (all aiding to reduce skin irritation from razor shaving). Client comfort from something as simple as a hot lather shave could be the difference between larger tips and client retention vs. no tip and non-returning clients. The Andis RAZR Pro Lather machine is also a great product for at-home use for the daily shaver. The benefits of shaving with hot lather vs. cold shaving creams are huge. Hot lather helps soften skin and open pores to allow for healthier skin after shaving. Healthy skin care leads to less bumps and dark spots, which are the biggest concerns for daily shavers. For more information about the RAZR Pro Lather machine visit today. 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. He teaches styling professionals the simplest approach to multicultural hair styling through a combination of solid technical demonstrations, creative interpretations, and entertaining presentations. Kenny is co-owner of Main Attraction Unisex Hair Salon, located in Philadelphia. He is reaching stylists around the world through, where his goal is to provide inspiration, motivation and education to clipper cutters of all experience levels. He truly is a trailblazer in this industry. 66

Taming the Curl Culture Whatever the race or gender, children are as cute as their curls. Young boys and girls are curly, kinky, or wavy—sometimes all at once. Their curls may be shaped, ponytailed, close-cropped or cascading. In order to capture the children’s market OTC shelves must offer products that tame and arrange curls. Curls can be naturally coiled or they may be twirled and twisted into shape. Parents who are concerned about time-intensive braiding are opting for mildly chemically treated “texlaxing.” Mild softening of the tighter curl pattern can allow a more free-form curly-do. Semi-natural styling and all other curly-q’s require emollients and moisture to keep curls bouncy and defined. Children’s products are positioned to be fun, fragrant and formative. Major brands are targeting the curl culture. The children’s market is dovetailing into a curl culture that is multigenerational. Many parents prefer natural styling for the beauty and the safety aspects. It has been proven that chemical treatments too often and too early result in loss of edges and hairline. What makes the curl craze significant is that it comes from a heritage of multiculturalism. The 2010 U.S. Census estimates that over 9 Million Americans identify themselves as multiracial. Curly-headed children could have varying lengths, textures and volume. Not only are detanglers popular to tame and style these crops, a wide variety of headbands, bows and other accessories are needed to manage curly hair. Children’s hair accessories are used in early infancy all the way to high school. It’s a cute way to keep naturally under control and in place.

5 Tips for Kid Cuts

Plan Carefully Book your appointment between mealtime and naptime so your child isn’t hungry or cranky. Call ahead to make sure the barber will be on time. Don’t hesitate to reschedule if your child seems cranky that day. The first haircut is a significant event, it’s important to make it a positive experience. Educate your Child Talk to your child about what they are seeing in the shop, point out the cape they will be wearing and what the scissors and clippers do. Avoid using the word “cut,” which may scare your child; use “snip” or “trim” instead. No one like surprises, so have your child watch you get a haircut or visit the barber before the big day. Pick the Right Shop and Barber Choose a barbershop that understands how to deal with children. Kid themed barbershops have videos and books to keep small children entertained. Some even do the first trim for free; others include a photo and certificate as part of a first-haircut. Be Prepared for the Shop Let your child bring a small toy. This will help him/her stay calm and keep their hands occupied. You might also hide a treat in your pocket for after the haircut. Before the barber begins, swing the chair away from the mirror so your child doesn’t fixate on the clippers/scissors. If they refuse to wear a cape, put one on first and show them how it looks. Get Psyched about the Haircut If you’re apprehensive or anxious, your child will pick up on it and be more likely to cry during his or her haircut. Talk to them about how much fun it will be. When they see that you’re looking forward to the haircut they will follow your lead.

Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show Goes Back to its Roots Largest multi-cultural beauty event in the U.S. revamps legendary tradeshow to focus on education and engagement for the next generation of industry professionals The 68th Mid-Winter Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show was held on February 21-23, 2015 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. With more than 15,000 attendees and 400 exhibitors, the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show maintains a commanding presence in the beauty industry and is the largest gathering of multicultural beauty professionals in the United States. Since its inception, a member of the Bronner Family has led the charge to ensure a successful Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show. For the 2015 show, James Bronner, the youngest brother of the Bronner family, filled this role. He also serves as part-owner and director of technology for the company. “This year, the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show will reflect a new vision for our role in the beauty industry,” said James Bronner, senior vice president, trade show operations. “After 68 years in business, Bronner Bros. is still familyowned and I am honored to serve in this leadership capacity as we continue to set the standard for excellence in the beauty business. What’s old is now new again at Bronner Bros.—a focus on education, innovation, and elevation of the multicultural beauty business. We have an amazing show planned and I look forward to connecting with our attendees and exhibitors in the coming weeks.” Bronner Bros. re-imagined how they present their iconic beauty show by going back to its roots of education and empowerment. Founded in 1947, the company and subsequent trade show sprang from a series of weekly meetings hosted by the original Bronner Brothers, Dr. Nathaniel H. Bronner, Sr. and Arthur E. Bronner, Sr., for Atlanta cosmetologists looking to improve their skills. As such, every aspect of this years’ mid-winter show was retooled solely with the instruction and professional development of attendees in mind—from a user-friendly website, online registration and self-service kiosks, to a revamped show floor and main stage features, as well as the education offerings, new show partners and evening events. For the first time, Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show was open to licensed beauty industry professionals and cosmetology students only. Show pass holders had the opportunity to attend a variety of dynamic 72

IndustryNews In Memory of

Marty Joshua Ethnic Hair Care Industry Mourns for One of its Own Institute (AHBAI). In 2009, in partnership with daughter Mary Lee Joshua, Marty co-launched M3 Cosmetic Labs, LLC the makers of NexSheen Arganics, to fill a void in the Ethnic Hair Care Market. It was during their tenure as the sales and marketing powerhouses at J.M. Products, the mother-daughter team witnessed how fundamental changes in the Ethnic HBC market were affecting quality and innovation. Together, the two created a new brand that puts quality and innovation back in the limelight. Inspired by the industry’s great pioneers, M3 poured extensive research into developing a product that mirrored the team’s self-image and, in the process, discovered the new generation in oil replenishment technology, Argan Oil. Today, M3 Cosmetics has distribution throughout the world, including North America, South America, Europe and Africa.

Martha “Marty” Harris Joshua, at the age of 61, entered into eternal peace surrounded by loving family on Monday, February, 16, 2015 at Hospice Home Care in Little Rock, Ark.; a beloved wife, mother, identical twin, sister, daughter-in-law, aunt, cousin, neighbor, friend and beauty business professional. In 1976 Marty’s career took her into the hair care industry with M&M Products, Inc., the makers of Sta-Sof-Fro® (based in Atlanta, Ga.) and quickly became one of the company’s top sales executives, being named M&M’s Salesperson of the Year in 1981. Marty’s dynamic presence in the marketplace and excellent rapport with distributors soon opened new opportunities and other leaders in the industry sought her expertise. She joined Soft Sheen Products, Inc., (based in Chicago, Ill.), and helped the company become the industry leader in the highly competitive Ethnic Hair Care Category. In 1983 she met the love of her life, Michael W. Joshua whom she fondly called “My Guy.” This love affair lead her to a career at J.M. Products, Inc. (the makers of ISOPLUS hair care products) where Michael’s father, the late Ernest P. Joshua Sr., was the owner/founder. Working her way through various departments of the business, Marty played an instrumental role in helping the company grow, ultimately leading the sales and marketing organization as Vice President. She has served on the boards of many charitable organizations including Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Pulaski County, Baptist Hospital Advisory Board, The Arkansas Repertory Theatre and the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce Minority Purchasing Council. She was a member of Holly Grove AME Church and a prior member of The Little Rock Chapter of The Links, Inc. Marty also served on the Board of Directors for The American Health & Beauty Aids 86

MARTY’S PASSION FOR BEAUTY: “I have always been inspired to bring beauty and science together solely for the hair care needs of people of color. From my early years I remember how difficult it was to have a product assortment that was designed for my kinky hair as well as that of my people. Even though I could afford to visit the beauty salon I always chose to do my own hair simply because I did not want a harsh buildup of products that only gave me a temporary fix. I wanted to control the after effect of my hair’s feel, look and health. Therefore I had to brew up different concoctions to get the look and feel I desired; I tested my home remedies on everyone I came in contact with; my children, family members and friends until I found the right balance and ingredients and fragrance that worked in harmony for our hair texture. I’m a firm believer that you should not put a product on the market unless you know without a doubt and can stand behind it with a 100% guarantee that it does exactly what you say it will do... I feel that my hair is my glory, it empowers me and gives me the self-confidence I command as a business woman.” Written by Marty Harris Joshua After a valiant 10 month fight against lung cancer that unexpectedly spread throughout her lungs and brain, she passed. Throughout her illness she maintained her sense of humor, compassion for others, love of family and most of all, faith in God. She leaves to mourn her passing her loving and devoted husband of nearly 32 years, Michael W. Joshua Sr.; daughter, Mary Lee Joshua, of Atlanta, Ga.; son, Michael W. Joshua, Jr., of Little Rock, Ark.; sisters, Shirley Lanham of Augusta, Ga.; twin sister, Mary L. Harris of Johannesburg, South Africa; Idell Harris and Louise Mathis of Augusta, Ga.; Fannie H. Livings and Sidonia Renee’ Harris of Atlanta, Ga.; a mother-in-law, Thelma Joshua of Little Rock, Ark.; and a host of brothers-in-laws, sister-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews along with extended family members, many close friends and business associates.

IndustryNews Andis Announces New Classically Modern.You. Style Collection for 2015

A fusion of artistic flair with classic barbering, the Classically Modern. You. style collection from Andis presents new styles complete with tutorial videos and step-by-step instructions for hair professionals. The new collection combines the talents of Andis educators Danny Amorim, Renee Chamberlain, Jason Potchen and Jessica Zeinstra to teach the fundamentals of clipper cutting and style finishing. “Some hair styles come and go, but classically clean lines and form are timeless for a great finish,” says Aileen Nunez, Andis international manager of education and style. “Andis clippers, trimmers and hairdryers in talented hands can create beautiful silhouettes, finishes and hair shapes. The new Classically Modern. You. collection demonstrates how using Andis tools combined with tried and true techniques produce the finished styles your clients want.” The new Pro Dry™ Elite Tourmaline Ionic Hair Dryer was among the tools used in this collection. “Hair professionals will find the new Pro Dry Elite Dryer an asset to their tool kit. It comes with four twist and lock nozzle attachments that won’t fall off during drying. They provide drying and styling versatility for different hair textures,” says Aileen Nunez. The dryer uses ions to help break down water molecules to infuse hair with moisture while tourmaline technology seals the cuticle layer

to lock out h u m i d i t y and frizz, leaving hair smoother, silkier and hydrated. Using 1600 watts to conserve energy, a hyper DC motor dries hair fast with increased airflow.

Four twist and lock attachments included: diffuser, styling pick, narrow air concentrator and wide air concentrator. Available in black with a one-year warranty.

Founder of Gives Barbering a New Reality The barbershop culture in the national spotlight with new television reality show, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer Talented barbers and their skills will soon be in high definition in homes across America with the premier of “Cedric’s Barber Battle,” April 17 on the CW network. “Cedric’s Barber Battle,” an all-new reality competition series hosted by actor and comedian Cedric The Entertainer, sets out to capture the unique culture that exists in barbering communities across the country. Blending craft with comedy, “Cedric’s Barber Battle” will visit different barbershops in communities, including Los Angeles, Queens, Harlem and Austin, where the best barbers will go head-to-head in a hilariously unfiltered, no-holds-barred arena. Creating hair sculptures that feature elaborate designs, ranging from images of a person’s face to grand cityscapes, the barbers will use nothing more than their clippers and a few coloring tools to create intricate works of art that are both imaginative and location-centric. Episodes will contain two challenges: a “buzz cut” challenge set inside an iconic barbershop, and an outdoor “cut down” challenge located at a regional landmark in each city. At the end of each episode, a champion will be crowned. The panel of judges, also known as “The Cutting Board,” is made up of renowned celebrity barbers including Curtis Smith, Rich the Barber, Bashan “B.G. Cutta” Gibbs and famed instructor Lena Piccininni.

Lee Resnick, founder of SouthEast Music and, the leading social networking platform for barbers, was the catalyst for “Cedric’s Barber Battle” becoming a reality. He began branding music and products directly to barbers and soon became fascinated with the barbershop culture and created the website for barbers to interact and share ideas. “ has more than 75,000 visitors a month and our following on social media grows everyday. As I marketed brands such as Gillette, P&G and Tequila Avion directly to barbers, I recognized the influence they had creating and setting trends. I knew a barber battle reality show would showcase the barbering talent and artistry,” says Resnick. “I’m excited to see ‘Cedric’s Barber Battle’ premiere. It’s bringing the barbering lifestyle into mainstream consciousness,” says Resnick. “It reminds me of the beginning of the hip hop era, where it started underground and gained more conventional recognition every year. We at Barbershopconnect. com know there are many talented and creative barbers, now all of America will get to witness it.” “Cedric’s Barber Battle” is produced by Big Energy Productions. It’s hosted by actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer (“The Soul Man,” “The Original Kings of Comedy,” “Madagascar,” “Barbershop”), who also serves as executive producer, along with Mark Efman (“Charlamagne & Friends,” “Z Rock,” “Nick Cannon’s Short Circuitz”) and Lee Resnick (Founder, April 2015 OTC Beauty Magazine

Cosmoprof North America in Partnership with PBA Announces Mark Cuban will Return for Second Consecutive Year Cuban is part of “an experience no other trade show has yet to offer”

Cosmoprof North America (CPNA), the leading international B2B beauty trade show, has partnered with The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) to announce that famed businessman, TV personality, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will return to the show for a second consecutive year during PBA Beauty Week hosted by CPNA. CPNA and PBA have not yet announced the purpose of Cuban’s 2015 return but “promise that attendees can expect an experience no other trade show has yet to offer,” said Daniela Ciocan, Marketing Director, CPNA. This is fitting for CPNA, which has received numerous accolades for its sheer size and for its format, including the “Most Innovative Trade Show” Award in 2013. “Mark is a passionate business man with a massive amount of success yet he remains an approachable and genuine advocate for all entrepreneurs,” said Scott Buchanan, chairman of PBA. “We’re pleased to present business owners with a glimpse into the mind of a leading entrepreneur and know that the takeaway for all attendees will serve as an invaluable tool as they continue to write their brand stories.” Mark Cuban first participated at Cosmoprof during the organization’s 2014 event, in which he served as a keynote speaker for the PBA Business Forum, where he challenged brand owners to make big efforts toward success and remarked: “you have to know your competition, be prepared, and understand your industry better than anyone else.” “Before I was Mark Cuban, successful entrepreneur, I was Mark Cuban, aspiring entrepreneur,” said Cuban. “The steps a business owner takes in the growth phase are crucial to success and it was important to me to share the 88

RECHARGE with Wahl Education and Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.) and Power Up Your Passion

If you want to power up your passion, technique and style, it’s time to plug in with the Wahl Education and Artistic Team (W.E.A.T.). W.E.A.T. kicked off 2015 with their line up of shows, events and classes January 24-26, at the International Salon and Spa Expo in Long Beach, California. This year’s class was called Wahl Recharge. “Everyone, no matter how much or little time they have invested in their careers, needs a little spark, inspiration, rejuvenation. It keeps you competitive,” said Laura VanderMoere Director of Education for Wahl Clipper Corporation. “When we do something long enough we tend to get into a routine which can lead to burnout. It’s interesting because our job as stylists is to keep our clients updated and ahead of the latest trends but yet we seem to be the most resistant to changing our ways.” This year’s classes are diverging from the traditional curriculum to feature the unique talents and artistry of W.E.A.T educators. The Long Beach expo featured W.E.A.T. members Christina Goree and Juan Ramos. Additional W.E.A.T. educators were featured during America’s Beauty Show held March 21-23 in Chicago and will be at Premiere held May 30-June 1 in Orlando. Goree is an internationally renowned educator. With more than 15 years as a WAHL Educator, Goree inspires students with everything from classic fundamentals of barbering to bold color artistry. Goree has worked with the most elite clients including professional athletes, top models, television and feature film stars. Ramos started his career when he was 14, sweeping, cleaning and attending to customers at his mother’s salon. Mastering the art of fading at 16, Ramos knew he was destined to become a hairstylist. Graduating from both high school and cosmetology school at the same time, Jay hit the industry running. He now owns multiple salons in New York and Florida. “Our team is so extremely talented. They need to showcase their unique approach and gifts,” VanderMoere said. “For the past

3 years they have passionately dedicated themselves to our core classes. This is their time to shine. Being in charge of their class objective allows them to customize it to what their audience is asking for.” Leaving the objectives up to the instructor, VanderMoere is hoping to create a personal, intimate classroom environment. “We can offer open communication of what they want to learn versus the objectives we are teaching,” she said. “Don’t get me wrong, there will be structure to the class. One topic that is always covered in any of our classes, and especially for our Recharge class, is a refresher on the features and benefits of our tools and how they are designed to be used. This informs the student of the difference between blades, motors, lines, etc. so they can make an educated decision when purchasing clippers or trimmers that will most benefit their desired results.” Continuing education arms stylists with new techniques, but also with confidence to accept any type of request that comes their way. It also can give your clients confidence. You are up to date with the latest trends and provide a personal style that will make them trend setters rather than trend followers. “The average client will stay with their stylist approximately 3 years for hair cuts and 3 to 5 for color. If one wants the reputation of being the go-to stylists or colorist in their market, continuing education is not an option. It is a must,” VanderMoere added. W.E.A.T. is a 15-member group of industry professionals that are the leaders and educators for Wahl. They are highly trained and technology advanced artists capable of instructing any skill level. Their goal is to provide student and licensed hair professionals with clipper education, and they believe that education is the key to a stylist’s success. To meet the team, visit

to create a finished hairstyle with Andis tools. The competition required a complete haircut of at least half inch of hair removed and a head-to-toe fashion look. Contestants were judged on technical execution, originality, new ideas, suitability and head contour. James Pope of Elite Beauty and Barber Salon in Atlanta earned first place with his model “the Prince;” followed by second place Johnnie Akons of Legacy Cuts in Chicago with his “fashionable Gumby;” and Tre Trimz of Ultimate Barber Lounge in Charlotte, NC rounded out third with his “dapper gentleman.” Andis prize packs were awarded to the winners and each contestant received the Andis MVP detachable blade clipper, GTX trimmer, Bump Care and other Andis essentials.

As an option, the shaver can also be used with a cord when the battery runs down. The ProFoil is driven by a robust, but quiet rotary motor turning at 9,400 RPM for optimal performance. Its tiered head design features two rows of cutting blades housed under individual gold titanium hypoallergenic foils that are engineered to maintain their shape better and last longer. “The centrally located power switch is controlled easily by the thumb, making the ProFoil Lithium Titanium Foil Shaver ideal for both left- or right-handed users,” says Aileen Nunez, Andis international manager of education and style. “We’ve also made it in our classic gray color to complement our iconic T-Outliner trimmer.” Replacement foils and cutting heads with replacement foils are also available.

It is formulated to control frizz, moisturize and rejuvenate dry, natural or curly hair with silky shine.
