Expert Advice by Mimi Aringo

Beating Dry and Damaged Hair

There is something about today’s generation that can’t seem to settle with their hairstyle. People with straight hair want to get a perm and those with curls want to have straight hair. All the processing and chemical applications put a lot of stress on our hair and ultimately, dries it out. The worn-out look is never a good look for anyone, dear. Yes. Like people, hair experiences stress too. Imagine what it has to go through between hairstyling and coloring, then hairstyling again. After quite some time, our hair becomes dry and damaged. Dry and damaged hair breaks easily, looks dull, and feels lifeless. Dry and damaged hair can be caused by many factors including poor diet, but it is most commonly due to over hairstyling, excessive use of hot hairstyling tools, and too much hair treatments with strong chemicals. Fortunately in most cases, dry and damaged hair is not permanent and can be reversed through the right hair care. Treating dry and damaged hair can be made easier when the right hair care products are used.

Hair Care Tips for Dry and Damage Hair 1. For hair with split ends, make sure to trim them – at least one cm from the tip. Trimming prevents split ends from going upwards – thereby causing more damage. Remember to do this hair care tip at least once every six to eight weeks. 12

OTC Beauty Magazine August 2013

2. Nourish your hair with hair supplements. Every hairstyle needs proper nourishment to achieve its most beautiful state. Biotin, Vitamin B, Niacin, and Amino Acids are said to be important for a healthy hair growth. These nutrients prevent hair from becoming dry and brittle. Water is also an important hair care must-have. It provides the proper amount of moisture to one’s hair. 3. Use hair care products that are known to treat dry and damaged hair. Moisturizing shampoos, deep conditioning treatments, leave on conditioners, as well as split end repair serums all help to revive dry and damaged hair. Hair sun blocks are also available nowadays to protect hair from being damaged by the sun. Other products include thermal protectant sprays applied before blow drying, straightening, and curling with hot irons; shampoos and conditioners for color treated hair; as well as, mousse,and hair polish for wavy and curly hair. Proper hair care and nourishment are sure to beat all the signs of dry and damaged hair. You need not sacrifice beautiful hairstyle for a well-nourished hair. For more hair care tips, consult your hairstyling expert.

Free Rider™ Its name may suggest that this clipper is simply along for the ride, mooching off the results of other shaving products used, but those assumptions are all wrong.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

sun protection for all! It may be August, but summer remains in full swing and people are still out enjoying the sun. Sunscreen is an important beauty product for people of all skin tones, and as a store owner it is important that you keep it on your shelves year-round. AMBI Skincare questioned Dr. Jeanine Downie, MD, about this important subject and we are sharing her insight with you.

We know that the extra melanin in darker skin tones offers some protection, but should women of color still be concerned about the aging effects of the sun?

“Absolutely. Sun can damage everyone’s skin including darker skin tones. Therefore, everyone needs an SPF 30 everyday, rain or shine, January through December, regardless of ethnicity. Sun damage causes fine lines, wrinkles and patchy pigmentation, which can make you look older than you actually are. And of course, overexposure to the sun can lead to skin cancer. 4.2 million people will be diagnosed in 2013, up from 3.7 million last year, according to the skin cancer foundation.” Dr. Jeanine Downie, MD, Dermatologist AMBI Skincare www.ambiflawlessskin.com

짙은 피부 톤에 있는 여분의 멜라닌이 몇 가지의 보호 기능을 제공한다는 것은 알고 있습니다만, 유색 피부를 가진 여성들은 여전히 자외선의 노화 영향에 대해 염려를 해야하는 건가요?

“물론입니다. 태양은 짙은 피부톤을 포함한 모든 사람들의 피부를 손상시킬 수 있습니다. 그러므로, 모든 사람들이 비가 오든 맑은 날이든, 1월부터 12월까지 인종에 상관없이 매일 SPF30의 자외선 차단제가 필요합니다. 자외선으로 인한 손상은 잔주름과 주름, 얼룩덜룩한 색소 침착을 야기하고, 이것은 당신을 실제보다 더 늙어 보이게 만들 수 있습니다. 물론, 과도한 자외선의 노출은 피부암을 유발하기도 하죠. 피부암 재단에 따르면, 2013년에는 420 만명 정도가 피부암 진단을 받을 것으로 보이는데, 이것은 작년 370만보다 증가된 것입니다. “

Hair Dryer Attachments 헤어 드라이어 부착품 Hair dryers are one of the most useful inventions for styling

hair, but sometimes it works better when not working alone. Hair dryer attachments are everywhere and their sole purpose is to assist you in creating better styles with your hair dryer, so if you’ve been noticing all these weird looking accessories made for hair dryers and wondering what they’re for, then here’s a brief explanation of each one.

헤어 드라이어는 헤어 스타일을 내기 위한 가장 유용한 발명품 중 하나지만, 때로는 다른 것과 함께 사용할 때 더 효과적이기 도 하다. 헤어 드라이어 부착품들은 어디서나 볼 수 있는데, 그 것의 목적은 헤어 드라이어와 함께 사용하여 더 나은 헤어 스타 일을 연출하는데 도움을 주는 것이며, 만일 여러분이 헤어 드라 이어를 위해 만들어진 이상하게 생긴 액세서리를 보고 무엇을 위한 것인지 의아해 한 적이 있다면, 지금부터 그것들에 관한 간략한 설명들을 잘 읽어 보도록 해라.

Concentrator: This hair dryer attachment is the most popular to come along with the actual hair dryer. The concentrator is a kind of narrow nozzle that, well, concentrates the airflow to make styling smaller sections of hair such as bangs a lot easier. It can also be used to straighten your hair if pointed downwards and working along with a round bristle brush. If you have a professional hair dryer that offers a cool shot function, then use a concentrator to direct the airflow to the ends of your locks and seal the cuticles for added shine.

노즐: 이 헤어 드라이어 부착품은 헤어 드라이어에 따라오는 가 장 인기있는 것이다. 노즐은 가는 분사구의 일종으로, 앞머리와 같이 모발의 작은 부위를 아주 쉽게 손질하기 위해 공기의 흐름 을 모아준다. 또한 노즐의 끝이 아래쪽으로 향하게 하고 둥근 드라이용 브러쉬와 함께 사용해서 모발을 스트레이트하게 할 수도 있다. 만일 여러분이 찬 공기 기능이 포함된 전문가용 헤 어 드라이어를 갖고 있다면, 모발의 끝부분에 공기가 직접 닿고 표피층에 윤기를 더할 수 있도록 노즐을 사용하라.

Diffuser

Pick

Concentrator

Diffuser: This plastic and cone-like attachment is the most gentle and beneficial hair dryer attachment so far. A regular hair dryer without the diffuser can cause damage and frizz, but with a diffuser the airflow is distributed indirectly over your hair, making the heat’s effect gentler. The prongs or “fingers” on the wider side of the diffuser are used to lift up your hair during the drying process to save time and enhance the natural texture of your hair. This is great for girls with a slight curl or wave in their hair that they would like to define, and it’s also ideal for naturally straight haired girls who want a volume boost. These come in all sizes and the bigger sections of hair you want to diffuse, the bigger the diffuser. Pick: This attachment is much more popular among African American girls since it’s used to create volume and to add lift to any style. Plus, it’s also great for straightening curly hair. The pick, or pik, allows you to comb your hair while you’re drying which helps straighten locks while preventing kinks to provide a quicker drying experience. Shorter hair needs a shorter pick, and for longer hair look for longer prongs. If you purchased a professional hair dryer then you probably already have one of these useful attachments. But don’t leave it in the box to collect dust—whip it out and start discovering all the fabulous styles it can help you to create!

디퓨져(공기 확산기): 플라스틱 원뿔 모양의 이 부속품은 지금 까지 가장 부드러우면서도 유익한 헤어 드라이어 부착품이 다. 공기 확산기가 없는 일반 헤어 드라이어는 모발의 손상 이나 푸석함을 유발할 수 있는데, 공기 확산기를 함께 사용 하게 되면 뜨거운 공기가 모발에 간접적으로 접촉되어서 좀 더 부드러운 열 효과를 만들수 있게 된다. 공기 확산기의 넓 은 면에 있는 접지단자는 드라이를 하는 동안 모발을 들어올 리기 위해 사용되는데, 시간을 단축하고 모발의 자연스러운 질감을 향상시킨다. 이것은 약간의 컬이나 웨이브가 있는 여 성들의 모발 손질에 아주 효과적이며, 긴 생머리에 적절한 볼륨감을 주고자 할 때도 이상적이다. 다양한 종류의 사이즈 들이 있으며 모발의 넓은 부위일수록 큰 디퓨져를 사용한다. 픽: 이 부속품은 어떤 스타일이든 모발을 들어 올리고 볼륨 을 만드는데 사용되기 때문에 아프리카계 미국인 여성들 사 이에서 아주 인기가 있다. 게다가, 곱슬 머리를 곧게 펴는데 도 아주 좋다. pick 또는 pik이라고도 하는데 드라이하는 동 안 모발을 빗을 수가 있어서 곧게 펴진 모발이 엉키지 않도 록 드라이 시간을 줄여준다. 짦은 모발은 짧은 픽이 필요하 고 긴 모발에는 긴 것을 사용한다. 만일 여러분이 전문가용 헤어 드라이어를 구매했다면 이 유 용한 부착품들 중 하나는 이미 갖고 있을지도 모르겠다. 그 러나 먼지가 쌓이도록 박스 안에만 두지 말라. 이런 부품들 이 수많은 멋진 헤어 스타일을 연출하는데 도움이 될 수 있 음을 발견해 보도록 해라!

“Role Model Beyond Beauty” T

Art Exhibit

hirty black women are among those honored in the newly launched Role Model Beyond Beauty art exhibition. Several were featured at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art opening event, including Sandra Miller Jones, founder of Segmented Marketing Services (SMSi) Inc. and three women who are leaders in the National Black Theater Festival (NBTF): Sylvia Sprinkle Hamlin, Mabel Robinson and Gerry Patton, who was a former director at Segmented Marketing Services (SMSi). The pastel portraits are from the personal collection of Lafayette Jones and Sandra Miller Jones, executive partners of SMSi-Urban Call Marketing. The exhibit opened in the Davis Gallery of the school, located in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts in Winston-Salem, NC. “This event will be a great visual arts complement to our community’s most exciting theatre arts event,” said Lafayette Jones. “Leo Rucker’s portraits have strong appeal to local audiences as well as out-of-town visitors before and during the theatre festival. We wanted to display these pieces in a location that would be convenient to the downtown performance venues and hotels, and we found perfect partners in the Sawtooth School and the Arts Council.” Nearing its 177th edition, Role Model Beyond Beauty has featured celebrities like actress Sheryl Lee Ralph and singer Patti LaBelle. It has honored black women in a wide range of fields from civil rights leader and icon Rosa Parks to dance artistic director Judith Jamison of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater of Harlem to Carol Mosley Braun, the first African-American woman to be elected to the U.S. Senate. Beauty industry leaders include speaker and educator Crystal Wright; Katie Catalon, PhD, national president of the National Beauty Culturist’s League (NBCL); M3 Cosmetics founder Mary Joshua; Geri Jones, executive director, American Health & Beauty Aids Institute; “My Nappy Roots” film producer, Reggie Kimble; Cheryl Broussard, “Sister CEO” author and Jet

The collection was developed over 20 plus years through Lafayette Jones’ column, “Role Model Beyond Beauty” in the Sophisticate’s Black Hair Styles and Care Guide, the best selling hair care magazine for women of color with an international readership of 1.6 million monthly. The magazine is directed by Bonnie Krueger, produced by James Spurlock and edited by Jocelyn Amador. It is estimated that 200 million people world wide have seen the role models in the magazine which is popular at black beauty salons and can be purchased at major retailers like Walmart, Walgreens, K Mart and CVS. The publication and column has a readership in the top 50 markets in the United States and global readership in West Africa (Ghana, Ivory Coast); South Africa (Capetown, Johannesburg), London, Paris, Milan and the Caribbean. The estimated value of the portrait collection is around a half million dollars. “But to us it is even more valuable as the largest art collection of African-American women giving back in their communities,” said Jones. Following the debut at Sawtooth, the exhibit is scheduled in 2014-2015 to visit large scale special African-American events in major metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, D.C., New Orleans and Charlotte.

What is the Difference Between a

Curling Iron and a Marcel Iron? 컬링 아이언과 마셀 아이언의 차이점?

A

curling iron is manipulated by controlling the shell that comes in contact with the rod and the thumb. A Marcel iron, named after its French inventor, has two revolving handles of equal length—one to control the shell and one to control the rod. The space between each handle is sufficient to allow a finger to fit, in order to control the movement of the iron. The stove heated Marcel iron is considered to be much more professional than the curling iron, because when working with a curling iron, the area of the hair shaft that comes in contact with the shell and pin (in the closed position) will stay in constant contact with the hair until released by the thumb. This is because the shell is held in a permanently closed position by a spring, which is released by the thumb’s pressure. The only way this pressure can be released during the curling procedure is when the thumb controller comes back around into position to be released. The rod and the shell of the Marcel iron can be kept in constant motion of opening and closing during the entire curling procedure, thereby disallowing hot spots to occur that could permanently and seriously damage the hair; this is especially important on relaxed hair that is already weakened from the procedure. A good example of this is a hot potato. If someone throws you a hot potato and instructs you to catch it but not drop it, then you will automatically juggle it from one hand to 52

스토브에 가열하는 마셀 아이언은 컬링 아이언보다는

훨씬 더 전문적인 것으로 간주되는데, 그 이유는 컬링 아이언을 사용할 때, 아이언의 쉘과 접촉하는 모발 부위와 핀(엄지 손가락으로 누르기 전에는 지속적으로 모발과 접촉하는 닫힌 상태) 때문이다. 쉘은 스프링에 의해 영구적으로 닫힌 상태로 고정되어 있으며, 엄지 손가락의 압력에 의해 열리게 된다. 헤어 컬링 중 이 압력을 열 수 있는 유일한 방법은 엄지손가락 조절 부위를 열린 상태로 두는 것이다. 마셀 아이언의 막대와 쉘은 전체 컬링 과정 동안 열림과 닫힘 동작이 지속적으로 유지된다, 그로 인해 모발의 영구적이고 심각한 손상을 초래할 수 있는 핫 스팟을 만들지 않게 되는 것이다; 이것은 특히 릴렉서 사용으로 이미 약해진 모발에는 아주 중요하다. 이것의 좋은 예로 뜨거운 감자를 들 수 있다. 누군가 당신에게 뜨거운 감자를 던지고는

the other in order not to become burned. This juggling process will keep the hot potato from coming in constant contact with your hands, also allowing the cooling effect of air to circulate between the potato and the hands, and thereby circumventing your hands from becoming burned. The Marcel iron allows this same kind of action to occur on the hair so you may curl using high heat without seriously burning the hair. For this reason, the Marcel iron is a safe, effective and professional device—much more so than the curling iron. The Marcel iron comes in two forms: (1) conventional, for use on the stove, and (2) electrical. Many of the electric models do not have equal sizes and shapes of handles. One may be much larger than the other on the same iron in order to house the thermostat and heat generating devices. As a result, most electric curling irons will not allow you as much

않기 위해서 자동적으로 양 손을 번갈아가며 저글링을 하게 될 것이다. 이 저글링 과정은 감자가 지속적으로 당신의 손과 접촉하게 함은 물론, 감자와 손 사이를 순환하는 공기의 냉각 효과를 갖게 한다. 그로 인해 당신의 손이 데는 것을 피할 수가 있는 것이다. 마셀 아이언이 바로 모발에 이와 유사하게 작동하기 때문에 심각한 모발 손상없이 높은 열로 컬을 만들 수 있는 것이다. 이러한 이유로, 마셀 아이언이 보다 안전하고 효과적이며 컬링 아이언에 비해 훨씬 더 전문적인 기구가 되는 것이다.

마셀 아이언에는 두 가지 형태가 있다: (1)

스토브에서 사용하는 재래식 (2) 전기식. 대부분의 전기식 모델은 핸들의 모양과 사이즈가 다르다. 온도 및 열 발생 장치를 수용하기 위해서 같은 아이언이라도 어떤 핸들은 다른 것보다 훨씬 클 수가 있다. 그 결과, 대부분의 전기 컬링

freedom of movement and control as the type used on a stove. Generally there is not enough space between the two handles (in a closed position) for your fingers to fit between. Also, only the rod is heated on the electric models. On the stove heated curling iron both the rod and shell are heated evenly, resulting in both sides of the strands receiving equal heat.

아이언은 막대와 쉘 모두가 균등하게 가열되는데, 결과적으로

Why do stove heated irons work best on coarse and Afro hair? Asian, Hispanic, Indian and all such types of hair have a cuticle that is twice as thick as most other straight hair, resulting in this type of hair requiring more heat to bend the cuticle to form a curl. The thickness of the cuticle accounts for the courser hair. Most Afro hair has overlapping cuticles in its natural form, resulting in the hair having twice as many cuticle scales in any given area. This is caused by the hair drawing up in its natural form (reversion) causing in the cuticles to overlap. For this reason, the type hair eluted to here is best served with the stove heated marcel iron. Electric irons utilize endothermic heat, meaning they are heated from the inside out. The outer surface of the stove heated Marcel irons comes in direct contact with its heating source—exothermic. For this reason stove heated irons have a more intense heat. One of the main reasons that an electric iron cannot maintain the high temperature is because the metal of the barrel is very thin. The barrel of the stove heated Marcel iron is made of a much thicker iron or steel, and in some cases is solid tempered, meaning the material can hold heat evenly from one end to the other.

생머리보다 두 배는 두꺼운 표피를 가지고 있다, 결과적으로

모발의 양쪽면이 모두 균일한 열을 받게 되는 것이다.

왜 스토브에 가열하는 아이언이 거친 모발이나 흑인들의 모발에 가장 잘 작용할까? 아시안, 히스패닉, 인디언들의 모발은 대부분의 다른

이러한 유형의 모발들은 컬을 형성하기 위해 표피를 구부리는데 더 많은 열이 필요한 것이다. 표피의 두께가 두꺼울수록 모발은 더욱 굵어진다. 대부분의 흑인 모발은 선천적으로 중복된 표피로 형성되며, 그 결과 같은 부분을 비교했을 때 다른 인종보다 두 배는 더 많은 표피층을 가지고 있다. 이것은 원래의 상태(회귀)로 돌아가려는 모발이 표피층을 겹쳐지게 하는 이유가 되기 때문이다. 이런 이유로, 여기에서 말하는 형태의 모발에는 스토브에 가열한 마셀 아이언이 가장 잘 작용이 된다. 전기 아이언은 내부에서 외부로 가열되는 흡열성 열을 사용한다. 스토브에 가열한 마셀 아이언의 표면은 발열성의 가열 물체와 직접 접촉하게 된다. 이런 이유때문에, 스토브에 가열한 아이언이 보다 강한 열을 갖게 되는 것이다. 전기 아이언이 고열을 유지할 수 없는 주된 이유 가운데 하나는 배럴의 금속이 매우 얇기 때문이다. 스토브에 가열하는 마셀 아이언의 배럴은 이 보다 더욱 두꺼운 철이나 강철로 만들며, 어떤 경우 solid tempered(미리 달구어져 단련된 강철)로 만들기도 하는데, 이것은 물체가 한쪽 끝에서부터 다른 끝까지 균일하게 열을 저장할 수 있음을 의미한다.

Does it Make Cents? There are lots of things to consider before offering mobile services. Your client is paying for their convenience, your inconvenience, time and service. “I explain to my students to charge their worth,” says Rodrick Samuels, owner of Profile Barber Institute in South Carolina and Andis Educator. “If you have to travel to see a client, whether they be a celebrity or a friend down the street, make sure you account for your time. Time is money.” Kenny “the Professional” Duncan, owner of Main Attraction Unisex Salon in Philadelphia and Andis Educator,

adheres to his mobile price list that lists time minimum, maximum number of people per hour of service, and he increases the prices accordingly. He also lists food expense, mileage, tolls and his requirements of lodging if necessary. “Having a set mobile price list makes sure there are no misunderstandings between both parties,” he says. Duncan encourages other barbers and stylists to be proactive and create their own opportunities. “Keep apprised of music shows and events coming to your area,” he says. “Plan for some flexibility in your schedule because when you network, you never know who may need your services.” A true professional, Duncan is also courteous to his salon clients by giving them at least a week if he needs to reschedule. “At Main Attraction, we only book appointments, so that makes it easier to plan ahead for going mobile.” Cut and Go For the ultimate flexibility as a mobile barber, invest in a cordless clipper and trimmer. After a few mobile cuts, your cordless tools should start paying for themselves. “Take care of your tools and they will take care of you,” says Samuels. “Buying quality tools is paramount. Be sure you properly store and clean them.” Celebrity-barber Angel Lucas A.K.A. monster99 the barber of baseball, is exclusively on the go. “I’ve cut hair on the golf course, on a plane and in a car,” he says. “You never know where your client wants a haircut.” Although he sets up shop where his clients need him, he often leaves a set of clippers and trimmers at stadiums or homes that he frequents often. “Leaving a set there makes it easier for me to travel and some people just prefer their own clipper.”

Duncan은 다른 이발사들과 스타일리스트들이 능동적으로 자신의 기회를 만들기를 권장한다. “여러분 지역에서 있을 음악 쇼나 이벤트를 지속적으로 소개하세요”. 그가 말하기를, “당신의 스케줄을 약간은 유동적으로 계획하세요. 어떤 고객이 당신의 서비스를 필요로할지 모르니까요”. 진정한 전문가인 Duncan은 자신의 일정을 변경해야할 경우, 적어도 일주일 전에 자신의 살롱 고객들에게 정중히 알린다. “가장 큰 장점은, 저희는 사전 예약을 받기 때문에, 이동식 서비스를 미리 계획하기가 쉽습니다”. 컷 앤 고 출장 이발사로서 최고의 유연성을 가지려면, 무선 클리퍼와 트리머에 투자해라. 몇 번 출장 서비스를 제공하고 나면, 당신의 무선 클리퍼는 스스로 제값을 하기 시작한다. “ 기구들을 잘 보살피면 그것들이 당신을 보살펴줄 것입니다” 라고 Samuels가 말한다. “품질 좋은 제품을 구매하는 것이 가장 중요합니다. 반드시 기구들을 제대로 보관하고 깨끗이 관리해야 합니다”. 유명 연예인들의 이발사인Angel Lucas A.K.A. monster99는 이동 서비스 분야에서 독보적이다. “저는 골프 코스나 비행기, 차 안에서도 헤어컷을 합니다” 라고 그가 말한다. “당신의 고객이 어떤 장소에서 헤어컷을 원할지는 모르는 일이죠” 물론 현재 헤어샵을 운영하고 있지만, 그는 클리퍼와 트리머 세트를 운동 경기장이나 집에 남겨 두고 있기도 한다. “작업 세트를 그곳에 두면 제가 이동하기가 더욱 편리하며 어떤 고객들은 자신이 갖고 있는 클리퍼를 더 선호합니다”.

Business Tips Duncan plans on leaving a trimmer for different reasons. “Often I’m asked about what to use for personal grooming; I suggest the new Andis Trim’N Go cordless personal trimmer. It runs on an AA battery and you can build it in the cost of the mobile service. It’s a bit of customer appreciation and it leaves a good impression.” He also suggests retailing the Trim’N Go at salon and barbershop checkouts to increase profits. “By retailing the Trim’N Go, you offer your clients a complete grooming experience without having to see uncharted territory.” Making the transition from inside the shop to on the go barbering can be successful as long as you charge accordingly and do not alienate your existing clients. Samuels stresses, “Make sure you keep your skills sharp to create the demand for your services, both inside and outside of the shop.”

Duncan 은 “저는 종종 개인적인 모발 손질을 위해 어떤 제품을 사용하면 좋겠냐는 질문을 받습니다. 저는 Andis Trim’N Go의 신형 무선 개인 트리머를 제안합니다. AA 건전지로 작동하는데 이동 서비스 비용으로 충분히 충당할 수 있습니다. 그것은 고객에 대한 일종의 감사로서, 좋은 인상을 남깁니다”라고 한다. 그는 또한 미용실이나 이발소에서Trim’N Go를 판매하는 것도 이윤을 높일 수 있는 방법이라고 제시한다. “Trim’N Go를 판매하면, 당신은 고객들에게 잘 알지 못하는 분야를 파악하지 않고서도 완벽한 모발 관리 경험을 제공하게 되는 것입니다.” 실내 헤어샵에서 외부 이발업으로 전환하는 것은, 당신이 적절하게 요금을 청구하고 기존의 고객들을 소원하게 만들지만 않는다면 성공적으로 해낼 수 있다. Samuels은 “ 당신의 서비스를 원하는 수요를 지속적으로 창출할 수 있도록, 이발소 안에서든 외부에서든 당신의 실력을 갈고 닦아야 합니다.” 라고 강조한다.

TheLoc

King of Locs by Cyrus Jackson

Journey

Natural hair care is all the rage in the market place, but

no other style truly represents the passion and commitment to natural ethnic beauty than the classic loc. Many people refer to the style as dreadlocks, but to have such an array of styles, lengths and variety as we do today, the term seems a little too limiting. Ethnic hair in its natural state is strong and beautiful. The use of quality products only enhances its rich brilliance. So let’s take a look at what defines the new stylish loc and which products customers seek out to maintain the style. Locs have been worn since ancient times and many of the ingredients and practices to start the process are used to develop products today. To loc the hair takes time and given the misconceptions and limited quality products, the process can quickly turn into a self defining journey. Locs are normally begun as a twist and secured with a holding agent. Over the years, bees wax has been used to secure the hair, but given the length of time between shampoos build-up is all too common. Many products have taken the same concept and produced naturally based products that eliminate the sticky build-up. Jamaican Mango & Lime carries a Locking Creme Wax with the hold of beeswax and the soft conditioning effects of cream. For those that prefer a lighter formula, the Locking Gel is moisture based and sure to hold twists in place. Once the hair is twisted, it should remain in this state for three to seven months until the natural curl pattern weaves within itself, forming a loc. During this time the scalp can be cleansed, but the hair should

not be vigorously shampooed until it is completely locked. For this reason, products with natural fruit extracts like mangos and lime are ideal as citric acid is a natural cleanser and astringent. As new growth comes in, it is twisted into the developing loc. Moisture is important for all natural ethnic hair. Since the hair will not be brushed or combed, there is less stimulation in the scalp and the body’s natural oils will not be distributed throughout the hair. Products with plenty of natural humectants and oils help to prevent damage of dry brittle hair and scalp. There is much to consider when deciding to grow locs. The process is a true commitment and most people like to experiment with the hair in its natural state before committing to the style. One can go several months before their hair locs; this depends on the hair type. The hair should be free of chemicals and the tighter the curl pattern of the hair, the shorter the time the hair will take to loc. Still, locs remain the number one natural style worldwide today. Beauty supply stores should keep this in mind when stocking new items to meet the new demands for natural hair products. Consumers and suppliers should stock trusted products like Jamaican Mango & Lime to meet the complete needs of locs and twists. I can tell you that the process is complex, but I know from personal experience and over a decade in the natural hair care business, it is all worth it for long, strong and healthy natural hair.

The Summertime Tune-up:

Seven Reasons to Perform a Half-Year Review and Let the Sun Shine on Your Business This Summer If you’re a business owner and you’re thinking about kicking back and taking it easy this summer, think again. I recommend using the season to do a half-year review of your business and take advantage of emerging opportunities while your competition rests. Summertime and the livin’ is easy…or so the song goes. But as the days grow longer and warmer, small business owners might want to be careful about taking it too easy during June, July, and August. The reality is that the season is actually a great time to do a half-year review and make some smart moves for your business while some of your competitors are in a summertime lull. I’m not saying you have to work yourself to death this summer. I’m suggesting you work smarter, not harder. Often, business owners think they can just wait and review their business or implement needed changes after they’ve enjoyed the summer. But what happens is, owners come back from their vacations and they are “slammed” trying to catch up and dealing with past problems, instead of looking for market opportunities or getting ready to ramp back up after Labor Day. They end up trying to succeed with the same troubled systems, processes, and/or employee(s), so nothing changes; suddenly the year is almost finished, and valuable opportunities have passed them by. But trust me, there are many benefits to taking the time 64

to do a half-year review right now—before time runs out to adjust to the market and make conquest sales to improve your bottom line. Summertime is a great time to “mash the gas” on improving your strengths and eliminating any weaknesses that have cropped up since the beginning of the year. The key here is to identify what can be done quickly and implemented easily. The more difficult challenges begin once you get these initial improvements in place. It’s also important to check in on the goals you made earlier in the year and make adjustments as needed. Read on for a few tips from my book, “The Facts of Business Life: What Every Successful Business Owner Knows That You Don’t,” on why you should do a summertime check-up on your business: Some important changes will take a while to fully implement. If you want to make changes in your operation, like ordering new inventory, hiring and training new employees, or putting a new marketing

Feature of knowing where your business stands and what you need to do to get it (or keep it) on track. One important thing to note: Most business owners look at sales revenues, expenses, and bottomline net profit. But don’t forget the importance of gross profit and the products and services that generate it. In reality, gross profit is what creates your net profit and provides meaningful measurement of sales and expenses. It is a factor that every business owner should be studying in detail. It’s a great time to go after new opportunities. New opportunities are always presenting themselves. By running your business through a summer check-up, you’ll be able to reevaluate the products and services that could add value to your current customers while attracting new ones, and as a result increase profits for your business. When you’re thinking about going after new opportunities, ask yourself a few important questions. In what areas can you gain market share because your competitor is struggling? Have you attacked the customer base and gross profits of your competitors? And so on. By going after new opportunities now, you can take a bigger piece of the business pie in the coming months and enter next year

in a stronger position both from sales and from the profits they generate. There’s no better time to remotivate employees. Most business owners probably look at the summer as the time their employees check out for a bit. They go on vacation or daydream about it. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Great business owners know how to use the summer to remotivate their staffs. With new information comes knowledge, and a summer check-up is a great way to gather the latest information about your business and market. If you’re the first to harvest this information, you will be the first to use it to boost your business. You’ll have the chance to attack the market—where it’s hot and where it’s not—before your competitors. Sure, you can always think of excuses not to do something. But you also have the ability to take advantage of opportunities, jump on them, and maximize them. Use the summer to gather new information about your business and capitalize on it while your competition is in “the relaxed mode”—it’s what all great owners do.

“For the ethnic consumer, [the OTC beauty industry] is the place where, historically, they are introduced to new brands, line extensions and trends,” explained Rich Lombardi, CEO of DRM-JPC Brands.

OTC Beauty Magazine (OTC): In your opinion, what is the most interesting aspect of the OTC beauty industry? RL: The variety of products offered that meet the consumers needs from natural to relaxed and the growing segment of those who are transitioning give the industry its most interesting spin. OTC: The Company just underwent quite a change to become DRM-JPC. Please explain this transition, how it came to pass and what it means for the future of the company. RL: The merger that took place earlier this year has diversified two very strong brand portfolios. We now have the leverage to touch every demographic in the ethnic hair care market. The future is anchored in the company’s refined vision to become the fastest growing innovative global personal care company that women of color will trust to help them look and feel beautiful. OTC: What traditions have each part of DRM-JPC brought to the new entity and how will they be nurtured in years to come? RL: The Dr. Miracle’s brand brings with it a unique positioning that differentiates it from all other players in the market place. Our ownership of the “doctor’s” concept gives us a firm foothold in the treatment category. Gentle Treatment has long since been the “go to” brand for women in an older demographic. Products that focus on grey and sensitive scalps set the brand apart from both general market and other ethnic brands on the shelves. Ultra Sheen Supreme offers a space for our portfolio in the value segment speaking directly to the savvy consumer who is conscience about ingredients. By refreshing the current product offerings and developing innovative new items to introduce to the market, we will continue to build upon the traditions of all three brands. OTC: How are customers being informed about the transition? RL: We will be subtly introducing our new branding, including the corporate logo into our products, sales, marketing and POS materials. In addition, as new items

OTC 뷰티 매거진(OTC): 귀하의 견해로 볼 때, OTC 뷰티 산업에서 가장 흥미로운 측면은 무엇입니까? RL: 제품의 다양성은 자연 모발부터 릴렉서를 사용한 모발, 그리고 전환의 시기에 있는 소비자들의 요구를 충족시켰으며 이것이 업계에 가장 흥미로운 점을 제공하고 있습니다.

RL: 올해 초에 시행된 합병은 두개의 아주 강력한 브랜드 포트폴리오를 다양화시켰습니다. 저희는 이제 모든 타민족 헤어 케어 시장을 접촉할 수 있는 영향력을 갖게 되었습니다. 새롭게 정비된 비전으로 회사의 미래가 출범되었으며 이로 인해 다양한 피부색의 여성들이 신뢰를 갖고 자신의 아름다움을 보고 느낄 수 있는데 도움이 될 수 있는 가장 빠르게 성장하는 혁신적이고 범세계적인 개인 관리용품 기업이 될 것입니다. OTC: DRM-JPC의 각 부분을 새로운 독립체로 탄생시킨 전통은 무엇이며, 앞으로 수 년동안 어떻게 이것을 육성해 나갈 계획이신지요? RL: Dr. Miracle’s 브랜드는 시장의 다른 모든 제품들과의 차별화로 독특한 위치를 갖고 있습니다. “doctor’s” 브랜드 컨셉에 대한 저희의 소유권은 트리트먼트 분야에서 확고한 발판을 저희에게 제공합니다. Gentle Treatment는 높은 연령층의 여성들에게는 늘 찾는 브랜드로 오래 지속되고 있습니다. 흰머리나 민감성 두피를 겨냥한 제품들은 매장 진열에 있어서 일반적인 시장 및 다른 타민족 브랜드와 차별을 시켰습니다. Ultra Sheen Supreme은 제품 성분에 정통한 소비자들에게 확실하게 어필할 수 있는 요소들을 갖추고 있습니다. 기존의 제품을 새롭게하고 혁신적인 신제품을 개발하고 시장에 소개함으로써, 저희는 이 세 가지 브랜드의 전통을 지속적으로 설립해나갈 것입니다. OTC: 고객들은 귀사의 이러한 전환을 어떻게 알게 될까요? RL: 기업 로고가 표시된 제품과 판매, 마케팅 그리고 매장용 광고 물품들을 포함한 다양한 방법으로, 새로운 브랜드에 관해 적절하게 소개할 것입니다. 신제품이 출시될 때 또한, 저희의 메세지를 강화할 수 있는 기업 커뮤니케이션 안내문이 배포될 것입니다.

G & A Beauty Supply • Duluth, GA 대중들에게 많이 알려져 있는 회사나 제품들은 저마다의 브랜드가치를 가지고 있다. 세계에서 가장 브랜드 가치가 높다는 코카콜라는 그 이름의 가치 만으로도 689억달러 에 다다른다고 한다. 그러한 브랜드 가치를 높이기 위해 서 각 회사들은 많은 노력을 기울이고 있다. 삼성이나 현 대 같은 기업은, 한국에서는 모두 알고 있는 대표기업 이 었지만, 불과 20여년 전만해도 한국 외에서는 굉장히 낮은 인지도를 가진 기업이었다. 하지만 이제는 전세계적으로 Samsung 이나 Hyundai 를 모르는 사람은 별로 없을 것이 다. 이는 그들이 꾸준히 제품의 질을 높여 판매를 증진시 켜 시장 점유율을 높인 것과 같이, 자신들의 브랜드를 성 장시키기 위해 엄청난 노력을 한 결과인 것이다. 브랜딩이란 꼭 어떠한 제품이나 대기업들만이 신경 써야 하는 것이 아니다. 자신의 이름을 건 미용실처럼, 본인 스 스로를 브랜딩 할 수도 있으며, 하나의 스토어도 대규모 체인 스토어처럼 브랜딩을 할 수 있다. 브랜딩이라는 것 이 그리 거창할 필요는 없다. 단순히 고객들에게 친절히 하는 것이나, 스토어의 특정한 개성을 살려 항상 같은 이 미지를 심어주고자 노력을 하는 것을 브랜딩이라 할 수 있 다. 예를 들어, 월마트는 가격이 다른 곳 보다 싸다는 인식 을 심어주는데 주력하고 있다. 사실, 요즘은 월마트나 타 켓의 가격차가 거의 없다고 볼 수 있지만 사람들은 은연중 76

에 월마트가 더 싸다는 생각들을 가지고 있다. 이러한 것 도 일종의 브랜딩이라 할 수 있는 것이다. 뷰티 서플라이 운영에서도 스토어 브랜딩을 함으로 해서 고객들에게 스 토어만의 특별한 이미지를 인식 시켜주고, 이를 판매증대 로 연결할 수 있는 것이다. 이번에 OTC 뷰티 매거진에서 인터뷰한 둘루스, 조지아에 위치한 G & A Beauty Supply 의 Grace Lee 사장은 자신의 스토어 이미지를 착실히 쌓 아가고 있는 오너 중 하나이다. Lee 사장이 내세우는 G & A 뷰티의 브랜딩은 좋은 품질과 신선한 제품이라 한다. 그 러한 스토어 브랜딩을 하기 위해 그녀가 어떠한 노력들을 하고 있는지, 인터뷰를 통해 알아보도록 하자.


남다른 시작 Lee 사장은 30여년전에 가족 이민으로 미국으로 건너왔다고 한다. 미국에서의 첫 직장은 은행이었으며, 멤피스 테네시주 에서 95년도에 뷰티 서플라이 스토어 운영을 시작하기 전까 지는 뷰티 서플라이에 대한 지식이 전무하였다고 한다. “처음 에 스토어를 인수 하면서 전 오너로부터 2주간 트레이닝을 받 은 것이 전부였습니다” 라는 Lee 사장은, 그 뒤로 스토어를 3 개까지 늘렸다고 한다. 그 후 스토어들을 정리하고 조지아로 이사를 오게 된 Lee 사장은 스톤 마운틴 지역에 스토어를 열 어 경영을 하였지만, 아이들과 보다 많은 시간을 갖기 위해 과 감히 스토어를 정리하고, 2006년에 집에서 멀지 않은 현재의 위치로 스토어를 이전하였다고 한다. Lee 사장은 “성장기의 아이들과 보다 많은 시간을 보내고자 하는 마음도 컸지만, 지 금 스토어가 있는 지역이 유난히 맘에 들었습니다” 라며, 뷰 티 서플라이의 주요 고객층인 흑인 지역이 아닌 현재의 위치 에 스토어를 오픈하였다고 한다. G & A 가 위치한 둘루스 시 티는 흑인들 보다는 아시안과 히스패닉이 더 많은 지역으로 구분되는 곳이다. “처음엔 지역적 상황만 보고 많은 주위사람 들이 모두 말리는 실정이었습니다. 하지만, 그 때 당시만 해도 주위에 뷰티 서플라이 스토어가 거의 없었고, 5년간의 인구이 동 데이터, 대부분 직장생활을 하는 중산층의 흑인들, 그리고 대형 마트인 Kroger 를 방문하는 흑인 손님들을 보며 확신을 갖게 되었습니다” 라는 Lee 사장은, 스토어를 오픈한 이후로 주위사람들의 우려를 불식 시키며 나름대로의 기반을 갖춰나 가기 시작하였다고 한다.

상질의 제품으로 스토어 이미지 업그레이드 G & A Beauty Supply 스토어를 들어서면, 유리로 만들어진 선반과 깨끗이 정돈되어 있는 제품들로 인해 쾌적한 쇼핑환경 을 제공하고 있다. “처음에 스토어를 오픈할 때 첫 인상이 중 요한 것 같아서, 신문지로 모든 창문을 가리고 그랜드 오프닝 정리가 끝날때 가지 오픈을 하지 않았습니다” 라는 Lee 사장 은 스토어의 이미지 구축에 많은 노력을 기울이고 있다고 한 다. 제품의 신선함과 선반에 제품이 떨어지는 품절현상을 막 August 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

기 위해 일주일에 두 번씩은 꼭 도매상을 방문하여 비워있는 선반을 채운다고 한다. 반대로 오래된 제품들을 스토어에 놔 두면, 스토어 이미지에 손상이 될까 우려되기 때문에 그냥 소 각을 시키기도 한다고 한다. 이는 스토어 안의 제품들은 항상 신선한 상태를 유지하고, 고객들이 필요로 하는 제품들은 항 상 구비를 하고 있다는 인상을 심어주기 위한 Lee 사장 노력 의 일환이기도 하다. 스토어의 내부환경과 스토어에서 판매 된 제품들이 스토어 이미지를 구축한다고 믿는다는 Lee 사장 은, 제품들 또한 가격만 싼 것들 보다는, 가격이 조금 비싼 제 품이라도 품질이 좋은 제품들을 취급하려 한다고 한다. “비슷 한 모양의 쥬얼리 제품이 있으면, 가급적 조금 더 고가의 제 품을 구입하여 판매하고 있습니다. 조금이라도 비싼 제품의 도금이 조금이라도 오래가는 것 같기 때문입니다” 라고 Lee 사장은 덧붙인다.

신뢰를 통한 고객과의 소통방식 “저는 케미컬 제품과, 헤어제품, 그리고 잡화 제품들이 동등 한 비율을 이뤄야 한다고 생각합니다” 라는 Lee 사장은, 요 즘 헤어의 비중을 늘리고 있는 다른 스토어들과는 조금 다른 생각을 가지고 있었다. 약은 마진이 상대적으로 적기는 하지 만, 뷰티 서플라이 스토어에 있어서는 주식과 같은 것이라고 생각한다며, “흑인 소비자들은 10개중에서 하나만 없어도, 9 개를 내려놓고 다른 스토어로 가는 경우도 있습니다. 그래서, 가급적 저희가 취급하고 있는 케미컬 제품들의 재고를 떨어 트리지 않으려고 합니다” 라고 한다. 취급하던 제품을 항상 상비한다는 것은 고객과 무언의 약속 이기도 한 것이다. 그러 한 약속을 지키는 것이 고객들과의 신뢰를 쌓아가는 중요한 요소인 것이다. G & A Beauty Supply 에서는 고가품의 제품 들도 뒤쪽의 진열장에 넣어 놓지 않고, 손님들이 직접 손으로 만져보고 살 수 있게 만들어 놨다고 한다. “이렇게 함으로 해 서 고객들을 존중하고 신뢰한다는 느낌을 주는 것입니다” 라 78

며, 고객을 믿는 마음이 고객들에게 전달이 되어 좋은 반응을 얻고 있다고 한다. Lee 사장은 너무 크지 않은 스토어 규모 또 한 오히려 장점으로 생각한다고 한다. “저희 스토어는 커다란 대로에 있는 것도 아닐뿐더러, 스토어 규모가 그리 크지도 않 습니다. 하지만 스토어를 방문한 고객들에게 바로 반응을 해 줄 수 있기 때문에 고객들이 편안함을 느끼는 것 같습니다”. 고객들이 한 두 가지의 간단한 제품을 구입하고자 할 때는, 아 무래도 커다란 규모의 스토어 보다는 작은 규모의 스토어를 선호하기도 한다. 이는, 바로 제품을 구입하고 나올 수 있다는 편리함 때문일 것이다.

현재 스토어에는 70% 정도만 흑인 고객들이며, 나머지는 백 인, 히스패닉, 심지어 한국사람들도 방문을 한다고 한다. 그러 다 보니 그러한 다양한 고객들을 위해 여러 가지 제품들을 구 비해 놓는다고 한다. “예전에는 흑인 고객들도 본인이 사용해 본 것만 사용하였는데, 이제는 많은 미디어를 통하여 정보를 얻고 새로운 제품들도 과감하게 사용을 하는 편이라, 새로운 제품들이 나오면 가급적 취급을 하려고 합니다”. 새로운 제품 들이 홍수같이 쏟아지는 요즘, 새로운 제품을 취급한다는 것 이 여간 어려운 일이 아니다. 하지만, 그러한 리스크가 없다 면, 그만한 영광도 없을 것이다. 본인의 경영방침을 확고히 세워놓고 유지한다는 것은 말처럼 쉬운 일이 아니다. 시간이 지남에 따라 매너리즘에 빠지거나, 초심을 잃는 나태한 마음가짐 때문인 것이다. 하지만, Lee 사 장처럼 자신의 신념을 꾸준히 지켜나간다면, 고객들에게 신 뢰를 얻음은 물론, 시간이 갈수록 스토어의 브랜드 가치가 높 아짐은 의심할 여지가 없을 것이다. G & A Beauty Supply 의 앞날에 건승을 빌어본다.

CLIPPER TIPS

Sponsored by Andis Co.

Go Deep!!!

The Andis T-Outliner is known for creating clean lines when the blades are adjusted to the liking of the barber using it. The rich history of the T-Outliner blade has kept the blade design from changing until recently. Andis has created an alternative blade for the T-Outliner that has many benefits that are worth the switch. Let me list the changes to the blade and the benefits of each change made. 1. The stationary comb blade has deeper cut teeth that allow more hair to feed through the comb blade which allows more hair to be cut with less effort. This is important when trimming thick nape lines or heavy front lines that usually require more effort. Also when outlining around the ear, using the Andis T-outliner turned sideways with the tips of the “T” of the blade touching the skin, the new deep tooth blade trims faster than the standard T-Outliner blade. Also, the Andis Deep Tooth Blade has led to faster dry shaving because of the increased about of hair allowed to feed through the teeth. 2. The tips of the teeth are rounded to prevent scratching skin in sensitive areas such as the nape area. Because the teeth are rounded, increased pressure can be applied to create clean lines instead of always desiring to zero gap the blades. The end result is increased client comfort without sacrificing the quality of the services provided. 3. A larger area in which cutting action can take place. With deeper teeth, the parallel placement of the cutter blade can be positioned with tips of the teeth anywhere within the size of the comb blade teeth. This makes the process of adjusting a blade much more forgiving and quicker than adjusting the standard T-Outliner blade. 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 www.ClipperEducation.com, where his goal is to provide inspiration, motivation and education to clippers cutters of all experience levels.

Therapy Trends Do-it-Yourself Devices

Styling tools and at-home implements will have to move over to make room for high tech, do-it-yourself beauty devices. These new gadgets are affordable alternatives to dermatologists’ treatments. Imagine your OTC customers using the tools of the trade to improve acne, enhance cleansing and to penetrate anti–aging product. Beauty tools are growing into a $3 Billon Global business according to Kline and Company statistics presented at the 2013 HBA Global Expo. They are available in fun and fashionable colors and patterns. Some are sold in combo packs or kits. Consumers are seeking the same professional aesthetics typically found in the doctor’s office. Nonsurgical beauty devices are attracting consumers that are 30 years old or older. Distribution of these articles is particularly growing fast in the televised shopping networks and in the higher end department stores. Even mass outlets are offering these products. Some tools deliver immediate results like hair removal tools or styling tools. Others will spend time and money to use thermal and sonic powered products to penetrate below the topical skin level. Results will be evident over time. Products that vacuum, vibrate and massage the skin and scalp stimulate blood flow for a rejuvenating look or feel. Your customers are aware that Botox, dermabrasion and filler treatments are reserved for their physician. Any other motorized or ultrasound beauty tool will be welcome for at home between visits. New age beauty tools aid in diagnosing and dosing right in the comfort of their home. Battery operated gadgets will stimulate purchases in a wider range of beauty tools.

TONSORIAL TIMES Poor Grooming or Medical Concern Men’s typical grooming routines are quick and straightforward: a daily shower and shave, a comb through the hair, and a clipper to the nails when needed. However, according to Paul W.Wallace, M.D, a dermatologist specializing in ethnic skin care and the medical half of the Bump Patrol Smooth Crew, if a man notices a change to his nails, hair or skin, it should cause him to pause. He recommends an annual skin exam if they notice any of these five skin, hair or nail issues: NAILS: show a change in texture or shape. It could be an early sign of arthritis or dietary deficiency. A change in color, be it a small dot or change to the whole nail, could be a sign of a fungus, which should be addressed early to prevent nail-root involvement. It could also be a sign of melanoma, the leading cause of death from skin disease. For African-American men, melanoma is found most often under the fingernail or toenail. HAIR: unexpected changes in texture, color or rate of hair loss. It could indicate underlying medical issues. Hair can serve as a window to the general health of an individual and provide an early warning of medical problems, such as thyroid disease or vitiligo. SCALP: feels tender to touch or groom.This is not normal. If it becomes pink, red or white (depigmented), feels soft or lumpy, or develops bumps, pustules or sores, visit a dermatologist. BEARD: feels overly irritated, has unexpected hair loss or changes in texture. Shaving might not be the cause. However, when bumps or whiteheads go untreated, shaving could exacerbate the problem. MOLES: changes in size, color or shape. It could be a warning sign of evolving skin cancer. Also, when a mole experiences any trauma, bleeding, pain or constant itch, a dermatologist should examine it. Even the darkest-pigmented skin runs the risk of skin cancer.

제 1 회 Carolina Beauty Expo 성료 길고 험한 준비과정이었지만, South Carolina 미소협 회원들은 제 1회 트레이드 쇼를 성공적으로 개최하기 위해 정말 열심히 준비를 해왔다고 한다. 그러한 결실은 지난 6월 30일 행사장에서 여실히 들어났다. 오전 10시경 테이프 커팅식으로 시작된 이날의 쇼에는, 30여개의 벤더들이 50여개의 부스를 채우고 손님들을 맞이 하였다. 제 1회 쇼이다 보니, 인지도나 참여도 면에서 조금 어려운 점이 있지 않을까라는 우려와는 달리, 오전에 서서히 들어오던 손님들이 점심시간을 지나면서 행사장을 채우는 듯 하더니, 오후가 되도록 계속해서 새로운 손님들로 행사장을 채워 갔다. 대부분의 쇼 방문자들은 보통 2~3 시간이 지나면 행사장을 벗어나는데, 이번 Carolina Beauty Expo 에서는 오전에 방문하여 행사 마감까지 머무는 손님들도 어렵지 않게 볼 수 있었다. 참가 손님들이 쇼장에서 많은 시간을 보낸다는 것은 그만큼 많은 거래를 이끌어낸다는 반증이 아닐 수 없다. “이번 쇼를 알리기 위해, 수 많은 스토어들에 초대장을 보내고, 일일이 전화를 걸어 쇼장으로 초대를 하였습니다” 라는 SC 미소협 최윤식회장은, 참가한 벤더들과 손님들에게 감사한 마음을 전하느라 당일 행사장을 종횡무진 뛰어 다녔고, 행사도우미를 자청한 협회 회원들도 매끄러운 진행을 위해 구슬땀들을 흘려 댔다. 점심시간이 지나 쇼가 무르익을 때인 오후 2시부터는 참가한 업체들의 세미나가 중앙 무대에서 열렸다. 특이한 점은, 보통 트레이드 쇼에서 세미나가 있으면 행사장 한곳에 마련된 밀폐된 장소에서 열리기 마련인데, Carolina Beauty Expo 에서는 행사장 중앙에 마련돼있는 중앙 무대에서 공개적으로 열려, 행사장내의 손님들이 쉽게 세미나에 참석할 수 있는 환경이 마련 되었다. 때문에, 2시에 Beauty Plus사를 시작으로, 3시에 Amekor사, 그리고 4시에 열린 뉴지구사의 세미나까지, 행사장내에 많은 사람들이 관심을 갖고 세미나에 참석을 하였다. 세미나 중간 중간에는 추첨을 통해 협회에서 마련한 $1,000, 김치냉장고, 바하마 크루즈 티켓, 그리고 그 외에 많은 상품들을 나누어 주었고, 푸짐한 아차상도 마련하여 참석한 손님들 모두에게 나누어 주기도 하였다. “쇼에 참석한 벤더들이 생각보다 좋은 판매를 만들어냈다고 합니다” 라는 협회 최형석 고문은, 그간의 노력이 좋은 결과를 만들어낸 것에 대해 상당히 고무적인 표정을 감추지 못하였다. SC 미소협은 이번이 제 1회 트레이드 쇼 임에도 불구하고 성공적으로 치뤄 냄으로써, 협회의 단결은 물론, 그 위상을 좀더 높이는 계기가 되었을 것이다. 이번 경험을 바탕으로 앞으로 더욱 발전하는 트레이드 쇼로 거듭나기를 기대해 본다. 90

NFBS 제 6차 트레이드 쇼 업계 최대의 쇼임을 다시 한번 입증. 지난 7월 21일, 뷰티 업계의 최대규모 쇼의 위상을 자랑하는 NFBS 총연합회의 제 6차 트레이드 쇼가 뉴저지에 위치한 Meadowlands Center에서 개최되었다. 케미컬, 잡화업체들, 그리고 헤어 업체들이 벤더로 참가한 가운데 열린 이날의 쇼는, 시장의 불경기에도 불구하고, 전국 각지에서 많은 스토어 오너들이 참가하여, 명실상부 업계 최대의 쇼임을 다시 한번 입증하였다. 보통, 점심시간 이후에 많은 사람들이 모이던 예년과는 다르게, 쇼 개장과 동시에 아침 일찍부터 많은 참가자들이 쇼장을 활보하며 부스들을 찾는 모습에 협회 행사위원들은 안도의 숨을 내쉬며 반색 하였다. 9시에 테이프 커팅을 시작으로 막을 연 쇼는, 300여개의 부스가 참여했으며, 대략 1,800여명의 방문자가 행사장을 찾아, 쇼장의 북적대는 분위기를 연출 하였다. 매년 쇼가 끝난 저녁 시간에 한국의 연예인을 섭외하여 공연을 하던 것과는 달리, 올해에는 맨하튼 브로드웨이에서 상영하고 있는 유명 뮤지컬 (Monkey: Journey to the west) 로 대처하였다. 예년과 같이 추첨을 통해 최고 상품인 한상대회 참가권 및 고가의 상품들이 참가자들에게 돌아 갔다. 유중현 총회장은, 추첨이 끝난 후 참가자들을 향해 “현재 협회가 직면하고 있는 현안들을 해결하기 위해 많은 노력을 하고 있으니, 참가자 여러분들도 이를 이해하고 동참하여 협회에 힘을 실어줄 것을 당부합니다” 라고 말하였고, 참석자들과 벤더들에게 감사의 말도 잊지 않았다.

IndustryNews Tom Hood Group LLC, Celebrating 40 Years in the Beauty Industry! “Thank you” to my customers, colleagues and friends Little did I know when I entered the beauty business out of college in the summer of 1973 that 40 years later I would still be here. WOW -­-­-­ what a ride! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, guidance and friendship. Too often we overlook the things that have really helped us succeed. Technology is off the charts, travel is incredibly fast and

the Internet has given us opportunities we had no idea we would find. With that said, I must say, it is still the business relationships, friendships and teamwork that guide me. When our paths crossed I hope things worked out well for you and that I was helpful in some way. I wish you and yours all the best. Thanks again! Tom

Bronner Bros. Hair Show by Dr. Edward Tony Lloneau

in Atlanta to Feature a Unique New Feature

This year the show will host a brand new movie premiere as part of the many activities associated with the show. The Bronner show is the largest show of its kind in the world. This year is the 66th year and will feature a trade show with over 300 exhibitors as well as 150 educational free classes on subjects such as advanced hair cutting and coloring, Trichology, business and computers, weaving, extensions, wig making, relaxing, curly perms, press and curl, and much more. Over 60,000 hair stylists and barbers are expected, all in a 350,000 square foot space at the Georgia World Congress Center. This four day event is from Saturday, August 17 to Tuesday, August 20. The trade show will run Saturday through Monday; Tuesday will be extended education. The gala movie premiere will be on Sunday evening at the show sight. The name of the movie is “Laughing to the Bank.” Be

there for all of the red carpet excitement! The Korean influence has been, and still is, a growing aspect of the show, most especially in the area of commercial hair and all forms of hair augmentations. Some of the largest, most impressive and attractive presentations are from the Korean displays of showmanship, artistic presentations, and product knowledge in a very unique entertaining array of singing, dancing and crowd pleasing musical accompaniment. So if you plan to attend, remember that it will take at least two of the three show days to take it all in with the classes, displays and many other attractions that encompass the show. See you there. For more information regarding the premiere at the show, call 404-577-4323, ext. 268.
