Expert Advice by Ted and Adrianne Fishman

The Uniqueness of OTCs vs.

Retail Beauty Stores T

he definition of “unique” is “one of a kind.” Regarding OTC stores, unique refers to not only one, but a group of stores that are unique in that they specialize in catering to personal care and beauty needs for their customers who are usually multicultural and need specialized items and products that are not readily available at retail beauty stores. OTC stores do not have restricted space and therefore have the opportunity to show local products and a much wider variety of items. For this reason, planograms of these stores are not as firmly set and the financial obligation for advertising promotions from manufacturers is not as vital. Among the items found in OTCs are hair relaxers, conditioners, hair color, specialized skin care products, and beauty products formulated for the multicultural customer. In addition to stocking these types of products, the OTC store is in a position to become even more unique 12

OTC Beauty Magazine December 2012

in that they have a loyal customer base shopping their store and in most cases know the store owner and personnel. This customer knows that they can count on their OTC store to have the products they need in stock – products that they cannot get at a retail beauty store. In addition to consumers, beauty salon personnel also shop their local OTC store for salon supplies. In addition to hair and skin products, they also purchase blow dryers, flat irons, shears, clippers, professional hair color products and accessories, manicure and pedicure items, wigs, human and artificial hair for weaving and extensions and a slew of other items needed by salons. Although there are some specialized beauty supply stores that stock these items, it is convenient for the hair stylist and manicure technician to shop at their local OTC store – a place they know and trust, and where they feel comfortable shopping.

Expert Advice

To further make your OTC store even more “unique” you can implement some programs such as having lists of your customers and sending out monthly sale flyers, giving back to the community by donating food to local food banks, etc. You can have a sign up form for your customers to fill out to win a free turkey for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. You could have a drawing and give away 15 to 25 free turkeys to the winners for each holiday. Be sure to put the winning customers’ pictures up in the store for them and visitors to see. During the holiday season you could give small gifts to each customer at the checkout – gifts such as imprinted calendar wallet cards, imprinted key chains, pens, flashlights, individually packaged mini candy canes, etc. to show your appreciation for their business. You can find these items on the internet and can buy them at very low costs. We looked up two websites where we saw some of these types of items – www.motivators.com and www.candyfavorites. com/candy-canes. We do not endorse either of these websites but looked them up to see what they had to offer in customer handouts. You can just put in keyword “customer handouts wholesale” and there are many websites where you can find these items or you may already have somewhere to get them. (If you are going to have anything imprinted remember to give them a few weeks lead time to get them to you on time.) The holiday season is an excellent time to let your customers know that you appreciate their business. Be sure to wish every customer a Happy Holiday Season and thank them for their business. Always remember that as an OTC store your business is unique and necessary to your customers who are close to you (both in relationship and proximity). Plan to find ways to make your store even more unique in 2013. You will find that doing this will result in added business and more loyal customers. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, and prosperous New Year.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

Saying “Goodbye” to 2012! Saying “goodbye” is not an easy thing to do, yet it is often needful and even necessary. The end of the year is a time where we face an inevitable farewell while moving into the New Year, and there are lessons to take from the past 11 months that can make your business stronger in 2013.

What do you think is the most important thing for store owners to remember when heading into the New Year? Is there anything in particular you would recommend them adding into their plans for 2013; perhaps a trend you see emerging? “I think any store owner should take stock of his and her inventory and make a business decision on what is selling and what is not, discontinue the non selling items and make more room for good selling and profitable items. In our industry retailers keep too many slow items on their shelves and need to adapt this retail chain philosophy: if they are not getting the turns, either cut back on space allocation or just discontinue.” Leo Alba, Sales Manager Beauty Consultants Group www.BeautyConsultantsGroup.com

“One of the hottest on-going trends has been the eye category. Stores need to have a wide variety of products dedicated to this category. Tinting, lengthening and curling the eyelashes will continue to grow in the professional industry. And do not forget the brows. Tinting, shaping and even lightening the brows are vital for that flawless polished look.”

Lena Campbell, Owner Innovative Beauty Products, LLC www.godefroybeauty.com If you have input you’d like to share regarding this question, send an email to hmcneal@otcbeautymagazine.com. Your response could be featured in the January issue! 24

어떻게 판매할 것인가? 이 달의 주제는...

“굿 바이 2012!” 이다. 작별 인사는 쉬운 일은 아니지만, 때로는 필요하며 꼭 필요한 경우도 있다. 한 해의 마지막은 새해를 향해 가고 있지만 피할 수 없는 작별과 마주하는 시간이기도 하다, 그리고 거기에는 2013년 당신의 비지니스를 더욱 튼튼하게 만들어 줄 수 있는 지난 12개월로부터의 교훈들이 있다.

스토어 오너들이 새해를 앞두고 기억해야할 가장 중요한 것은 무엇이라고 생각하는가? 2013년의 계획에 추가할 특별한 무엇이 있는가? 새롭게 나타나고 있는 트랜드는? “제 생각엔 매장 운영자들은 상품 재고를 확인해서 어떤 제품이 판매가 되는지, 판매 되지 않는지를 파악하고, 판매되지 않는 제품은 중단하고 판매 실적이 좋은 제품이나 수익성이 좋은 제품을 위한 공간을 더욱 크게 확보해야 할 것 같습니다. 우리 업계에서 소매상들은 판매 저조한 제품들을 진열대에 너무도 많이 방치해두고 있는데, 이런 소매 체인 철학을 적용해야 할 필요가 있다고 봅니다: 판매 실적이 오르지 않는다면, 제품 진열 공간을 줄이거나 판매를 중단해야 합니다.”

Leo Alba, Sales Manager Beauty Consultants Group www.BeautyConsultantsGroup.com

가장 인기있는 트랜드 중 하나는 눈과 관련된 제품들입니다. 매장들은 이 부분과 관련된 다양한 종류의 제품들을 갖춰야합니다. 속눈썹의 틴팅이나 길이, 컬링은 전문 분야에서 지속적으로 성장할 것입니다. 그리고 눈썹도 잊지 마세요. 눈썹의 틴팅이나 모양, 심지어 광택까지도 완벽하게 마무리된 룩을 연출하기 위해 매우 중요합니다.”

Knowledge to Know by L. Perry

Winter Beauty Care

The Challenge of Seasonal Dry Skin and Chapped Lips

겨울철 뷰티 케어 겨울철 건조한 피부와 입술이 갈라지는 문제들 When it comes to beauty products, women naturally enjoy buying new colors and trying out the latest shades when one season changes into the next. However, there is one season in particular that can be a real beauty challenge for many women; the harsh cold weather months of the year. Suede boots and designer sweaters are cute in the winter months, but chapped lips and itchy skin is not. During the colder months, Mother Nature can wreak havoc on the condition of our hair, our skin and especially our lips. There are many environmental factors that explain why our skin and lips feel extra-dry and uncomfortable at this time of year.

뷰티 제품에 관한 한, 여성들은 계절이 바뀔 때면 새로운 색상을 구입

Winter—Dry Skin Can Come From Low Humidity, Dehydration and Ineffective Products Home heating systems can make indoor spaces dry out skin. Lack of moisture inside the home and little humidity outdoors all contribute to that tight, dry feeling we all get in the winter time. Let’s face it, many women give up the 8-10 glasses per day of water they were drinking in the summer. Instead, they grab hot tea or coffee as their beverage of choice when it’s cold outside. Caffeine-laced drinks are known diuretics that cause dehydration. Dehydrated skin is simply that; dried out.

하고 최신 색상을 시도하는 것을 자연스럽게 즐긴다. 그러나, 많은 여 성들이 진정한 아름다움에 도전할 수 있는 어떤 한 시즌이 있는데; 바 로 한 해 중 가장 추운 겨울철이다. 스웨이드 부츠와 디자이너 스웨터 는 겨울철 깜찍한 아이템이되지만, 갈라진 입술과 가려운 피부는 그 렇지 못하다. 추운 계절 동안, 자연은 우리의 모발과 피부, 특히 입술 상태를 손상 할 수 있다. 피부와 입술이 왜 겨울철에 특히 더욱 건조해지며 불편함 을 느끼는지를 설명하는 많은 환경적인 요인들이 있다. 겨울- 건조한 피부는 낮은 습도, 탈수 그리고 효과적이지 못한 제품에 기인한 다. 안의 수분 부족과 외부의 낮은 습도가 겨울철에 피부가 더욱 당기고 건조하게 느껴지는데 기여하는 것이다. 솔직히, 많은 여성들이 여름 철 하루 8-10 잔 정도 섭취하던 물을 겨울철에는 포기하게 된다. 대 신, 추운 바깥 날씨에 따뜻한 차나 커피를 선호하게 된다. 카페인 함 유 드링크는 탈수를 유발하는 이뇨제로 알려져 있다. 수분이 부족한 피부는 간단히 말해; 건조하게 말라버린다. 여성들이 하는 또다른 실수는 여름철 사용하던 스킨 케어 제품나 피부 관리 방법을 추운 겨울철에도 그대로 사용한다는 것인 데, 얼음처럼 차가운 바깥 날씨에는 당연히 효과가 떨어지게 된다. 비 록 겨울철 피부 관리에 있어서 어려움을 극복할 점들이 있긴 하지만,


Another mistake that women make is trying to use the same skin care routine and products that worked in the summer with poor results when the weather outside turns blustery and icy-cold. Although winter skin care has its challenges, there are a few simple and effective ways to combat or prevent dry skin and parched lips in the winter time.

간단하고 효과적으로 피부와 입술이 건조해지는 것을 방지할 수 있는

Get Back To the Basics of Skin Care—Start from the Inside Out As difficult as it can be, drinking plenty of water in the heart of winter is still the very best way to keep the skin cells plumped up and hydrated from the inside out. Adding an indoor humidifier to your home or work space can go a long way in increasing skin comfort levels during the driest time of the year. Humidifiers add moisture to the skin at the cellular level from the outside in. Skin needs water for the health and beauty of the entire complexion.

장 건조한 시기에도 피부의 안정 수준을 향상시키는데 지속적으로 기

Use Rich, Emollient Products as a Protective Base When it comes to choosing a good body lotion or moisturizer for winter skin care, think rich and emollient. Lightweight, oil-free or fast-absorbing moisturizing products are better for the summer months. Choose richer, more protective ingredients that contain skin soothing Shea Butter, coconut oil, jojoba or olive oil. Thicker, petroleum-based products stay on longer and protect the skin from severe wind burn if you happen to live in a location where the weather is not only frigid, but very windy as well. Alter Your Personal Care Routine to Pamper Your Winter Skin When it comes to cold weather skin care, a few simple changes to your normal shower or bath routine can help alleviate dry, itchy skin. Exfoliating your skin with a good-quality scrub is just as important in the winter as in the summertime for getting rid of those dead skin cells. Instead of drying off completely, let your skin remain slightly damp while you apply an oil-based moisturizer all over your body. The heat and steam from the shower will help the skin absorb the product more efficiently. Bath or shower time is perfect for applying products that contain oat derivatives if you happen to suffer from extremely itchy skin in the winter months.

방법들도 있다. 스킨 케어의 기본으로 돌아가자 - 내부에서부터 시작하자. 힘들겠지만, 한겨울철에도 풍부한 수분 섭취는 피부 세포를 통통하 게 유지하고 내부로부터 바깥으로 수분을 유지하는데 가장 최선의 방 법이다. 가정이나 작업 공간에 실내 가습기를 추가한다면 한 해의 가 여할 것이다. 가습기는 외부로부터 체내로 세포층에서 피부에 수분을 더해준다. 전체적인 피부의 건강과 아름다움을 위해서 피부는 수분 이 필요하다. 보호 기능 베이스로 풍부한 연화 제품을 사용해라. 겨울철에 좋은 바디 로션이나 보습제를 선택할 때는, 풍부함과 부드 러움을 생각해라. 가벼운 느낌의 오일 프리 제품이나 빠르게 흡수되 는 보습제는 여름철에 더욱 좋다. 쉬어 버터나 코코넛 오일, 호호바나 올리브 오일처럼 피부를 진정시키는 성분을 풍부하게 함유한 제품을 선택해라. 만일 당신이 날씨가 얼어붙는 듯 추울 뿐 아니라 심한 바람 도 부는 지역에 살고 있다면, 조금 더 두껍고, 페트롤리움(석유, 바셀 린 성분) 기반의 제품이 피부에 더욱 오래 남고 세찬 바람으로 인한 피부 손상을 막아준다. 겨울철 피부 관리를 위해 개인적인 관리 습관을 바꿔라. 추운 날씨의 피부 관리에 관해서는, 일상적인 샤워나 목욕 습관을 간 단하게 바꾸는 것도 건조하고 가려운 피부를 완화하는데 도움이 된 다. 품질 좋은 스크럽으로 각질을 제거하는 것은 죽은 피부 세포를 제 거하는 것으로 여름철뿐 아니라 겨울에도 중요하다. 몸 전체에 유분 이 함유된 보습제를 바를 때는, 피부를 완전히 건조시키는 것보다는 살짝 물기를 남겨두는 것이 좋다. 샤워할 때의 열기나 증기가 제품을 보다 효과적으로 피부 속으로 스며들게 할 것이다. 겨울철 특히 심한 피부 가려움으로 고생하는 경우에는 목욕이나 샤워 시간에 OaT(귀 리)추출물이 함유된 제품을 사용하는 것이 좋다.

Choose Lip Products That Soothe and Comfort Dealing with chapped lips in the winter means choosing the right lip product. Unfortunately, this does not mean highly-pigmented matte lip colors, metallic lip glosses and other types of regular lipstick brands. Chapped lips call for specialized products that contain ingredients like beeswax, petroleum, lanolin, jojoba and chamomile. If your lips get so dry in the winter December 2012 OTC Beauty Magazine

K-t-K that they crack and bleed, you may need a medicated lip balm and nightly applications of a thick petroleum-based lip balm. As with the exfoliating routine mentioned above, lips also need regular removal of dead skin cells. Cracked, bleeding lips are a sign of dehydration, so increasing your daily water intake will definitely help. Winter does not have to include a seasonal battle with chapped lips and dry skin. Cold weather can be a wonderful time to pamper yourself and to experience new products that are richer, creamier and more moisturizing than lighter summer products. Healing lip balms with natural ingredients, fragrant body oils and creams that once felt heavy and greasy in hot weather are now the perfect products to treat your dry, thirsty skin and lips to a little extra tender loving care.

편안함과 진정 효과를 주는 립 제품을 선택해라. 겨울철 거칠고 트는 입술을 다루는 대는 적절한 립 제품을 선택하는 것 이 중요하다. 불행히도, 이것은 고농도 색소의 매트 립 컬러나 메탈릭 립 글로스, 다른 형태의 일반적인 립스틱 제품을 뜻하는 것이 아니다. 갈라진 입술에는 비왁스(밀랍)나 석유, 라놀린, 호호바, 카모마일 등의 성분이 함유된 특별한 제품이 요구된다. 당신의 입술이 겨울철만 되면 심하게 건조해져서 갈라지고 피가 난다면, 약용 입술 연고를 사용하거 나 석유 성분이 많이 함유된 입술 연고를 야간에 발라주는 것이 필요 하다. 위에서 언급한 각질 제거 습관과 마찬가지로, 입술 또한 정기 적으로 죽은 피부 세포를 제거해야 한다. 갈라지고, 피가 나는 입술은 탈수의 표시이므로, 일일 수분 섭취량을 늘이면 분명히 도움이 될 것이 다. 겨울이라고 해서 반드시 갈라지는 입술이나 건조한 피부로 고생할 필요는 없다. 추운 날씨는 당신 스스로를 가꾸고 가벼운 여름 제품보다 한층 풍부하고 부드러우며 보습이 뛰어난 신제품을 경험하기에 좋은 시간이 될 수 있다. 천연 성분의 치료용 립밤, 여름철에는 무겁고 번들 거린다고 느꼈던 향이 좋은 바디 오일과 크림이 겨울에는 당신의 건조 하고 목마른 피부와 입술을 조금 더 부드럽게 치료해주는 완벽한 제품

Knowledge to Know by Dr. Edward Tony Lloneau

How Relaxers Affect the Hair 릴렉서가 모발에 미치는 영향

I

n an earlier editorial on Trichology I stated that in a later article I would explain how various chemicals used in Cosmetology work. In this article, we will cover hair relaxing. In follow-up articles we will explain cold wave (curly perms), press and curl, and permanent hair color, and how these products work differently on Afro hair then on Caucasian hair. In order to really understand this concept, you must first understand what changes the hair undergoes when it is relaxed. Relaxers that use Sodium Hydroxide (and to a lesser degree calcium and lithium “no lye”) as their active ingredient will destroy from 1/4 to 1/3 of the hair shaft. Do not become alarmed by this fact because hair can withstand that much destruction and still remain healthy, providing it is properly cared for. When relaxer is applied to the hair, it must penetrate the cuticle layer (which is made up of the same substance as the fingernail, keratin protein). As you work the relaxer into the hair, you actually scrape away as much as 1/3 of the cuticle scales. This is why the curly perm will not take on relaxed hair, because the curl actually forms on the cuticle. With much of the cuticle gone, little or no curl will form. This will be covered in more detail in next month’s article on “How the Permanent Curl is Formed.” The relaxer next penetrates the cortex and may lift some natural color. This is why if your patron requests both a color and relaxer treatment, you apply 34

the relaxer first, then the color at the next appointment. (See how and why in future articles in this series.) The next area of the hair shaft affected by the relaxer is the medulla. As you work with the relaxer, you stretch the hair shaft by removing a large degree of its elasticity and it remains that way by elongating the sulfite bonds and squeezing out about 25 percent of the natural oils that they contain. Cystien links that connect the bonds are broken from their criss-cross, up-down and every-which-way configuration, and then reformed into a straight up and down pattern, reconnecting the reformed bonds in that manner. The changing of the Cystien links is the main factor for hair being permanently straight as a result of the relaxer treatment. This is also the reason we cannot reconstruct relaxed hair 100 percent, because changing the Cystien links is one part of hair relaxing that is not reversible. The preceding information is not designed to heighten your anxiety about the use of sodium or calcium (no lye) hydroxide relaxes, but to allow you to have more respect for their use by pointing out their pros and cons. This way, if something goes wrong or out of control during the process, you will have a better understanding of what happened and how to correct it. 36

oomed from the start. If you’re an entrepreneur or an entrepreneur-hopeful, it’s probably difficult to keep those four words from causing you to second guess your every move as you plan and run your business. They become especially hard to ignore when you consider the fact that less than 30 percent of businesses last more than 10 years, and most failures happen within the first few years of operation. To achieve the success you’ve dreamed of, there are facts to help you avoid the mistakes and pitfalls that trip up so many others. I call them the Facts of Business Life. Now, don’t get me wrong. There are no guarantees for entrepreneurs—and to add to the challenge, each business is one of a kind in terms of how it competes, its constraints, and how it operates. But what you can do is tilt the odds in your favor. Fact 1: If you don’t lead, no one will follow. At first, this statement seems mind-numbingly obvious. But often, “leadership” is one of those words that is thrown around by people who haven’t given much thought to what it looks like in action. Good business leadership begins with defining the destination and direction of your 46

음부터 문제가 있다. 만일 당신이 사업가이거나 사업가를 희망한다면, 당신의 계획대로 모든 행동을

추측하고 니스를 운영하는 이유로부터 이 네 단어를 멀리하기는 아마도 쉽지 않을 것이다. 특히 당신이 지난 10 년 이상의 기간 동안 비즈니스의 30%정도의 요인들과 초기 몇 해 동안의 가장 큰 실패를 고려해 본다면, 이 네 단어를 무시하기는 어려울 것이다. 당신이 꿈꿔온 성공을 이루기 위해서, 당신이 실수하고 함정에 빠질 수 있게 하는 수 많은 것들로부터 피하는데 도움이 되는 요소들이 있다. 나는 그것을 비즈니스 생명의 사실들이라고 부른다. 지금부터. 오해없길 바란다. 사업가에게 보장되는 것은 없다. 그리고 도전을 추가하는데도, 각각의 비즈니스는 그것의 경쟁 방법과 제약, 운영 방법적인 측면에서 특별하다. 그러나 당신이 할 수 있는 것은 당신에게 유리한 쪽으로 확률을 기울이는 것이다. 사실 1: 당신이 이끌지 않으면, 아무도 따르지 않는다. 먼저, 이 말은 너무나 진부할 정도로 분명한 것 같다. 그러나 종종, “지도력”은 행동함에 있어서 어떤 모습인지 깊은 생각을 부여하지 않는 사람들 주변에 던져진 여러가지 말 가운데

Fact 2: If you don’t control it, you don’t own it. Control is the owner’s management reality. If you don’t control your company by defining key tasks and dictating how they must be handled, and “inspect what you expect,” then you don’t truly “own” the business because all you are is a spectator watching others play with your money.

Fact 3: Protecting your company’s assets should be your first priority. Were you surprised because this fact didn’t instruct you to first protect your company’s sales, profits, and growth? If so, you’re not alone. But the truth is, assets—which include both tangible and intangible assets—are what power sales, profits, and growth. Usually, owners and soon-to-be owners understand the need for insurance on assets like their buildings and equipment. However, successful owners don’t stop at protecting obvious assets. They understand the importance of every one because they represent invested cash, which should be managed to produce exceptional and maximized profits. The key is to understand what all of your company’s assets are and then guard them closely and work to maximize the profits they represent.

사실2: 당신이 제어하지 않는다면, 당신은 그것을 소유하는 것이 아니다. 제어란 소유주의 현실적인 관리이다. 만일 당신이 주요 직무를 정의하고 관리하는 방법을 지시하고, “신이 기대하는 것을 검사”하는 것으로 당신의 회사를 있는 것이 아니다. 왜냐하면 당신은 그저 다른 사람들이 당신의 돈으로 즐기고 있는 것을 보는 관객일 뿐이기 때문이다. 사실3: 회사의 자산을 보호하는 것이 우선되어야 한다. 이 사실이 회사의 매출과 수익, 성장을 우선으로 보호함을 가리키는 것이 아니라서 놀랐는가? 만일 그렇다면, 당신은 혼자가 아니다. 그러나 진실은, 자산(유형과 무형 모두를 포함한 자산)은 강력한 판매와 이윤, 그리고 성장이다. 흔히, 소유주와 곧 소유주가 될 사람들은 자신의 건물이나 장비 등의 자산에 대한 보험의 필요성을 인식하고 있다. 그러나, 성공적인 소유주는 확실한 자산을 보호하는 것을 멈추지 않는다. 그들은 모든 것의 중요성을 인식한다 왜냐하면 그것은 이윤을 극대화하기 위해

Fact 4: Planning is about preparing for the future, not predicting it. Nobody knows what tomorrow, next week, or next year will bring for your business. But you can make educated guesses based on the most current, accurate information available as well as your own past experiences, and this should be an ongoing process. Effective planning is a mix of science (gathering pertinent information) and art (taking that information

and turning it into a plan that will move your business from “here” to “there” over a specific time period). Fact 5: If you don’t market your business, you won’t have one. Maybe working to market and advertise your product (or store) isn’t your cup of tea. Or maybe you believe your product is so great that it should speak for itself. If so, too bad—you’re going to have to do it anyway. The bottom line is that if people don’t know about your product, you won’t be successful. Fact 6: The marketplace is a war zone. Every company has competitors, and if it doesn’t and it’s successful, it soon will. Successful owners know they have to fight not only to win market share but to retain it as well. That’s why I insist that you must develop a warrior mentality and maintain it for as long as you’re at the head of your business. Fact 7: You don’t just have to know the business you’re in; you have to know business. Yes, of course you need to know the inner workings and nuances of your particular industry if you want to be successful. But you also need to understand the various aspects of business as it is more broadly defined, such as accounting, finance, business law, personnel issues, etc. and how all of these impact each other and the decisions you make. Ultimately, I don’t believe that any entrepreneur can succeed—or at least reach his or her full potential— without knowing, understanding, and applying these seven Facts of Business Life. I promise, if you commit yourself to understanding these facts while being prepared for their implementation to change as your business goes through its inevitable life cycle, you’ll be creating a best-odds scenario for success.

The

Shopping Experience OTC 쇼핑 체험

A

s a salon owner and former products junkie, I have experienced different views when it comes to shopping in the beauty supply store. It is great that there are many beauty supply stores all over the country; however what exactly do customers look for? From a customer’s point of view when it comes to purchasing products in the beauty supply store, it can be a very frustrating experience. There are thousands of products to choose from, and the customer is usually overwhelmed by the huge selection. It is important for customers to have and receive full knowledge and understanding of exactly what they need to purchase for their hair. Beauty supply store owners should hire helpful sales associates to assist the client when it comes to purchasing products. If the sales associate does not have an understanding, then it is best that they be directed to a stylist. Beauty supply stores can partner with local beauty schools and possibly recruit student stylists to work at their location. Beauty supply stores should keep a directory of local salons in the area, that way customers have a reference person when it comes to purchasing products. Many customers cannot afford a salon service and prefer a do-it-yourself method at home. If supply store owners and sales associates educate their clients as to what products they need to use, it will make purchasing products much easier at beauty supply stores. 50

롱 오너이자 왕년의 쇼핑광으로서, 나는 뷰티 서플라이 매장 쇼핑에 관한 다른 관점을 가지고 있다. 미국 전역에 무수히

많은 뷰티 서플라이 매장이 있다는 것은 고맙지만, 고객들이 찾는 것은 정확히 무엇일까? 뷰티 서플라이 매장에서의 제품 구매에 관해 고객의 관점에서 보면, 그것은 아주 당황스러운 경험일 수도 있다. 선택할 수 있는 수 천가지의 제품들이 있고, 고객들은 대부분 방대한 제품군에 압도된다. 고객들에게는 자신의 헤어를 위해 정확히 어떤 제품을 구매해야하는지에 대한 모든 지식과 이해를 얻는 것이 중요하다. 뷰티 서플라이 매장 오너들은 제품 구매에 관해 고객에게 도움을 줄 수 있는 판매 직원을 채용해야만 한다. 만일 판매 직원이 제품에 관한 충분한 이해와 지식이 없다면, 고객들을 스타일리스트에게로 인도하는 것이 최선이다. 뷰티 서플라이 매장은 지역 미용 학교와 연계하여, 자신의 스토어에서 일할 수 있는 학생 스타일리스트를 모집하는 것도 가능하다. 뷰티 서플라이 매장은 지역 미용실들의 디렉토리를 보유하고 있어야 하며, 그것은 고객들이 제품 구매에 관해 조언을 얻은 사람이 있는지를 알 수 있는 방법이다. 많은 고객들은 매번 미용실 서비스를 받을 여유가 없으며 집에서 스스로 할 수 있는 방법을 선호한다. 만일 서플라이 매장 소유주와 직원들이 이런 고객들에게 어떤 제품이 필요한지 교육한다면, 뷰티 서플라이 매장에서 보다 쉽게 제품을 구매하게 만들 것이다. 고객들은 뷰티 매장에서 고객 서비스에 대한 아쉬움을 종종 경험하게 된다. 이것은 직원들이 무례해서가 아니라, 권유하는 제품에 대한 지식의 부족해서이다. 전문가용 제품들이 고객들에게 많이 권유되어지는데, 미용실에서 손질한 듯한 느낌의 건강한 헤어를 원하는 고객들의 욕구를 충족시켜줄 수 있기 때문이다.

Business Tips Customers often experience lack of customer service in beauty supply stores. This is not because the associates are rude; the issue is a lack of knowledge of what needs to be recommended. Professional products are highly recommended for a client because they ensure the results the client is looking for a healthy hair with a finished salon look and feel. Establish a rapport with the customer. Use product recommendations and education to promote and establish trust between the store owner and the customer. The wholesalers should be able to provide seminars or education for the distributors on how to educate the consumer and increase sales by partnering with manufacturers. Survey sheets can be provided to assess the customer experience and suggestions for improvement. Instead of only giving clients store flyers with coupons, a letter to the customer can be written on one side (stating “Dear Valued Client, we are here to answer all your questions on hair care and help enhance your shopping experience…”). The coupons and offers may be written on the other side. The difference with this approach is the client feels valued and appreciated and will purchase more items as a result. Every customer who walks in the beauty supply store should be able to find professional products, or their equivalent, for at-home maintenance. The cheaper items will not always equate to a better buy. Overall, salon owners, stylists and beauty supply stores should be working together in the community. Each one brings value to the table. The most important ingredient is the consumer who depends on us to provide them with their hair care needs. Let us find ways to ensure they have a great shopping experience because “it takes years to gain a customer and seconds to lose one!!”

Just the Facts on the Ultimate Compare To Brand: III Sisters of Nature

King of Locs by Cyrus Jackson

T

The holiday season draws near and as we all prepare to perform the normal routines of family gatherings, merriment and all out overspending, the valued consumer weighs heavily on my mind. I have developed and used natural hair care products for over 30 years. Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. prides itself on staying on top of industry trends and manufacturing advancements that will not only grow our business, but provide the services and quality every consumer craves. Every year we work overtime in the labs to bring the consumer the latest in natural hair care and maintenance. This year, our research lead us to a very important question that was not just one of product development but profound ethic proportion. Why are so many natural hair products so overpriced? Natural hair is just that—natural; a simple maintained hair style that is free of chemicals and harsh ingredients. We decided to develop a quality “compare to” hair care brand with the consumers’ needs in mind. This dedication to higher quality and consumer consciousness lead me on a journey through the legal system and back to ensure that our customer gets the value they deserve. Professional Products’ new brand III Sisters of Nature is the cleaner “compare to” hair care product. The products were developed with the belief in a great balance of beauty, style and budget. The line comes complete with five products to style, maintain and treat natural hair types. For an added bonus to all of our customers, III Sisters of nature is not only affordable, but it was specifically formulated with cleaner ingredients. Our products are free of alcohol, waxes, silicones, petrolatum, mineral oil, parabens, formaldehyde and carbomers, items that can be found in many expensive natural hair care brands today. Reviews from natural hair care consumers and the natural hair social media have been outstanding. III Sisters of Nature is the ultimate “compare to” brand to add to any retail product mix. There are “compare to” products in all industries, and the ethnic hair care sector is no different. You can stroll down the aisle of any store and find a name brand item and its more affordable doppelganger brand just a few feet away. I developed III Sisters of Nature with this widely used concept in mind. I know how much it costs to produce quality hair care

products. Business is always our main concern, but there is a difference between standard profitability and overprice. Every company has the absolute right to defend their trademarks, formulas and intellectual properties, but the practice of generic branding is widespread throughout all industries. III Sisters of Nature was developed as the ultimate “compare to” brand that will incorporate “compare to” products from a range of different hair care products. We have no intent to target a particular company or brand, but to make sure that our customers have the options that natural hair care truly provides. With this in mind I want to make sure the retailers and consumers know the facts. On February 2, 2012, the makers of the popular brand Miss Jessie’s, Akiro, LLC, filed suit for trademark infringement against my company, Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. III Sisters of Nature offers four products that are compared to similar products of Miss Jessie’s for a significantly less price. Professional Products’ Once a Week Nourishing Treatment is compared to Miss Jessies’s Rapid Recovery Treatment. The Natural Lengthening Creme is compared to Miss Jessie’s Stretch Silkening Creme. III Sisters of Nature’s Sweet Honey Rose Treatment is compared to Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment and Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding is compared to Professional Products’ Spiral Pudding. Akiro’s action was dismissed on March 19, 2012. We have since continued to bring the III Sister’s of Nature brand to the consumer both nationally and internationally with great success. Natural beauty comes from within, so why should consumers pay a penny more than they have to? Professional Products Unlimited, Inc. will always put our customers first as we have in the past. The OTC class of trade continues to thrive on the principle of properly serving the customer and providing the ultimate in quality with every retail product mix. If we take care of the customer, they will always remain loyal and come back to the brands that they can trust. So I say to the OTC retailer, continue to show your customers that you value their business by stocking quality products at affordable prices. The consumer will appreciate it because every woman deserves the highest quality, chicest style and naturally based ingredients at a reasonable price.

P.E.A.R.L.S. Wisdom for a Successful New Year!

A

s beauty and barber supply stores prepare for 2013, they are encouraged to seek the consumer’s perspective. From years of “touching hands” with consumers in retail environments the Marketing company I work for has gained pearls of wisdom that have taught us what makes, and breaks, a good shopping experience for consumers. The P.E.A.R.L.S. that we’ve learned are: Pricing, Excitement, Assortment, Respect, Loyalty & Shopability. Your success with these P.E.A.R.L.S. will help you ensure that your store continues to attract and keep consumers in 2013. P-Pricing Twenty years ago, the local beauty and barber supply store was the only place in the community where consumers could get the hair products they wanted. Then consumers were willing to pay a little more for the convenience of buying a product in their neighborhood. (It saved them the trip of having to travel to the nearest chain retailer.) However, that has changed. Chain retailers are in urban communities throughout the country. And, since they often buy more volume directly from manufacturers, oftentimes, they are able to price products lower. To be more competitive in 2013, reconsider 58

OTC Beauty Magazine December 2012

your pricing wherever possible. Do price promotions on hot, or new items to bring customers into your stores. However, since competing directly with chains on prices day-to-day can be a challenge, consider the fact that you can improve the price/ value of a consumer shopping in your store. For example, provide her with samples, be pleasant, and get to know her a little. (A simple smile, “hello,” and “how are you” can go a long way.) In time, these could matter more than price alone. E-Experience This coming year, continue to give her an experience that she’ll appreciate and enjoy. An experience can be as simple as having someone on your staff that understands the products and that can help her find what’s best for her. Or it can be as big as partnering with a brand, local blogger, or local hair salon to have events in your store. You can even partner with a radio station to do a live remote in your store. Any of these ideas show that you offer your consumers a service and, therefore, a better overall experience. This will provide you with satisfied customers that, in turn, will spread the word about your store and bring you new customers. A-Assortment The beauty of a local beauty and barber supply (B&B) store is that essentially EVERYTHING you


need for your styling regimen is there. From skin care and makeup to hair, hair care and accessories, the breadth and depth of the local B&B store’s assortment is incredible. In fact, this extensive assortment is their greatest POD (point-ofdifference) from chain retailers. In fact, B&Bs often have brands and products that are hard to find anywhere else. As you get ready for the New Year, we think it’s important for you to stick with this tradition of offering your customer things that she can’t find anywhere else. It gives her a reason to keep coming back to you. R-Respect Some say that it’s tough to conduct business in urban communities as the poverty in these communities can result in pilferage, vandalism and theft. Nonetheless, the majority of people in these

communities are honest, hard-working people that are simply trying to make ends meet and provide for their families. They’re husbands and wives, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters just like us. They’re married couples, single mothers and single fathers doing the best they can, stretching their dollars as far as they can. They deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. In 2013, ensure that your customers continue to have a great shopping experience in your stores. L-Loyalty Consumers LOVE being rewarded for their loyalty. And while there’s no such thing as complete loyalty in this retail age, there are a couple easy Marketing tactics that you can use to get her to come back to you. Try bounceback “coupons.” I understand that you don’t accept manufacturer coupons. However, December 2012 OTC Beauty Magazine

a coupon that YOU create can be used to get consumers to come back to your store. (Don’t fret, you can design the coupon on a computer and print them out at your local Staples. They DON’T need to be scannable. You just need to be able to identify it as yours.) Whenever a customer purchases, give her a $3 off “Thank You coupon” for her next purchase of $20 or more. (Make sure to include an expiration date in the near future so that she’ll come back quickly.) Or, borrow an idea from the department stores by executing a “Friends & Family” weekend. Pick a weekend and give a discount (e.g., 15 percent) off an entire purchase to every shopper. (Don’t forget to promote your “Friends & Family” weekend beforehand by telling customers two weeks before and by putting a poster in your window that announces the event.) Your customers will appreciate the savings and be happy to be rewarded for their purchases!

for her to competitively shop and find what she needs quickly. Additionally, use displays and end caps whenever possible. They tend to “pop” in retail environments, thereby attracting customers’ attention and getting them to consider buying more. Finally, it’s easier for customers to shop if things that go together are near each other. For example, having the glue or needle and thread needed for weaves near the hair just makes it easier for her to shop. Shopability is apparently a priority in most B&Bs that we’ve visited. For those stores that value this, please keep up the good work; it’s noticeable. For those that haven’t had the time yet, please consider this for the coming year. It will make a difference with your customers.

In closing, as you prepare for the New Year, reassess your business, thinking about it from the customer’s perspective. Try using these P.E.A.R.L.S. S-Shopability of wisdom to surpass your customers’ expectations While consumers’ shopping habits have been known in the New Year. to wreak havoc in stores, they tend to prefer to shop in stores that are clean, merchandised nicely and are Good Luck and we wish you a prosperous 2013! easy to shop.

International

Osman Mithavayani

At the start of any company it is needful to have a vision and stick to it, pushing headstrong toward a successful future. With this in mind, the family behind Xtreme Beauty International (XBI) stands on the belief that, “success is always achieved with smart, strong, hard work and good relationships,” explained Osman Mithavayani, an owner. “Growing up, my father and grandfather showed me hard work and dedication which in turn helped me build good strong habits.” OTC Beauty Magazine learned all about this company that one family’s hard work built. 어떤 기업이든 시작은 비전을 가지고 성공적인 미래를 향해 완고하게 밀어 부치는 것이 필요하다. 이를 바탕으로, 익스트림 뷰티 인터내셔널(XBI)의 가족들은 “ 성공은 언제나 똑똑하고 강하며 노력하는 자세와 좋은 관계를 통해서 이뤄진다”고 믿고 있다고 오너인 Osman Mithavayani 씨는 말한다. “자라면서, 부친과 조부는 노력과 헌신을 내게 보여주셨고, 이것은 내가 좋은 강한 습관을 만드는데 도움이 되었다” 고 그는 설명했다. OTC 뷰티 매거진은 한 가족의 노력으로 만들어진 이 기업에 관한 모든 것을 알아 보았다. OTC Beauty Magazine (OTC): How did XBI get its start? Please briefly tell our readers about the history of the company. Osman Mithavayani (OM): In 1999 my father started to wholesale products from one of his beauty supply stores in downtown Miami. XBI didn’t actually become official until 2000 when he rented his first warehouse. Near the early parts of our company we began manufacturing a variety of beauty goods overseas under the Victoria USA® brand and Xtreme Tools® electronics brand. With a combination of in-house brands and those of other manufacturers, we began to distribute directly to local stores in the South Florida area as a wholesale company. During the winter of 2010 we officially purchased a small company which owned the product lines of Clear Fast®, Okay® and Roots Therapy®. From then it became official that we were becoming a recognized national manufacturer and brand in our industry and that is where you find us today.

OTC 뷰티 매거진(OTC): XBI는 어떻게 시작되었습니까? 귀사의 역사에 대해서 저희 독자들에게 간단하게 말씀해주십시오. Osman Mithavayani (OM): 1999년 저희 부친께서는 마이애미 다운타운에 있는 자신의 뷰티 서플라이 매장 한 곳에서 제품 도매를 시작하셨습니다. 부친께서 2000년에 첫 번째 물류창고를 렌트할 때까지는 XBI는 공식적으로 시작되지 않았습니다. 회사의 초창기 무렵Victoria USA® 와 Xtreme Tools® electronics 브랜드로 다양한 해외 뷰티 제품들을 제조하기 시작했습니다. 자체 브랜드와 다른 제조업체의 브랜드를 조합해서, 도매업체는 물론South Florida에 있는 지역 매장에도 직접 공급을 시작했습니다. 2010년 겨울에 저희는Clear Fast®, Okay®, Roots Therapy® 브랜드를 소유하고 있는 작은 업체를 공식적으로 인수했습니다. 그때부터 저희가 공식적으로 이 업계에서 인정받는 전국적인 제조사이며 브랜드가 되었고, 여러분들이 오늘날 저희를 만나게 되는 시작이었습니다.

OTC: What indicated a need for this company within the beauty industry? Specifically, why is it directed toward the OTC/multicultural consumer? OM: Today’s beauty market is much more diverse than 10 years ago. Xtreme Beauty International is needed in today’s market and has gained mass appeal towards the OTC/multicultural consumer. Being that our company manufactures and offers skin lightening, feminine care, electrical tools and natural products, this makes us very diverse and unique in our market. Usually a company would not try and diversify to target all ethnicities. On the contrary we cater to all consumers through one product brand or another. The market is filled with many brands that have been around for ages or that are similar to many other brands. Now in the new era and time of our market. XBI strives to be different from those in the market and create new trends and demand in beauty supply.

OTC: 업계에서는 귀사의 어떤 점을 필요로 합니까? 특히, 왜 그것이 OTC 다문화 소비자들과 직결되는지요? OM:오늘날의 뷰티 시장은 10년전보다 훨씬 다양해졌습니다. 익스트림 뷰티 인터내셔널은 현재의 시장에서 필요로 하며 OTC/다문화 고객들에게 상당히 크게 어필하고 있습니다. 저희 회사가 생산자가 되어서 피부 미백, 여성용 케어 제품, 전기 도구 및 천연 제품들을 제공하는 것은 시장 내에서 저희를 아주 다양하고 특별하게 만듭니다. 흔히 업체들은 모든 인종을 겨냥해서 시도하거나 다양화하지 않습니다. 이와 반대로 저희는 이런 저런 브랜드를 가지고 모든 고객들에게 맞추고 있습니다. 시장은 연령대 별로 다양한 브랜드로 가득 차 있으며 많은 유사 브랜드들이 있습니다. 이제 우리 시장의 새로운 시대와 시간이 되었습니다. XBI는 시장의 다른 업체들과 차별화를 두고 뷰티 서플라이의 새로운 트랜드와 수요를 창조하기 위해 노력하고 있습니다.

OTC: Briefly explain the different brands that fall under the XBI umbrella. What makes them unique from other brands in the business? OM: Xtreme Beauty International manufactures six major brands: 1. Clear Fast® is a skin care and lightening brand which caters to the African American community. This product line consists of excellent acne and lightening products that can help clarify uneven skin tone and eliminate skin spotting. It has been providing positive customer reviews for over 16 years. 2. Femme Clean® for personal feminine hygiene is centered in providing a 64

OTC: XBI 제품을 사용한 고객들로부터 어떤 종류의 반응을 듣습니까? 그들이 얻을 수 있는 가장 큰 이점은 무엇일까요? OM: 고객들이 저희 브랜드를 좋아하는 것 같습니다. 이것은 각각의 아이템마다 담긴 우수한 품질과 섬세한 효능이 개별적인 요구에 부합되기 때문이죠. 저희 제품 라인은 보통의 평균 브랜드들보다 약간은 높은 레벨이라고 볼 수 있습니다. 이 말은 동시에, 이 제품들이 여러분의 평균 브랜드가 아니라는 것이죠. 저희는 현재 시장의 다른 어떤 제품보다 우수한 품질을 제공합니다.

OTC: What marketing advice would you give store owners about how to properly present and retail XBI product lines? OM: Xtreme Beauty brands caters to a wide market and they closely monitor current and future trends. The Okay® brand increases retail stores’ appeal, clientele and most importantly, the sales. Product placement and knowledge on the brand create a strong relationship that leads to increased sales. Ask your employees to educate themselves by reading all the information on our labels. A more knowledgeable person is a better sales person. Always try and give Xtreme Beauty brands the best shelf space. We offer shelf talkers and advertisements to help push sales. So be sure to properly display each under their respected products. Branding is very important in our industry. So a variety of same brand products grouped together make a stronger impression on your retail customers. This will help draw attention.

OTC: XBI 제품 라인을 적절하게 판매할 수 있는 마케팅에 관해 매장 관리자들에게 조언하신다면? OM: 익스트림 뷰티 브랜드는 폭넓은 시장을 수용하며 현재와 앞으로의 트랜드에 관해 엄밀하게 모니터하고 있습니다. Okay® 브랜드는 소매 매장에서의 호응과 고객층, 무엇보다 중요한 매출이 증가하고 있습니다. 제품 배치와 브랜드에 대한 지식이 매출을 올릴 수 있는 강한 상관 관계를 만듭니다. 여러분의 직원들이 저희 제품 레벨에 명시된 모든 내용들을 잘 숙지하고 있는지 물어 보십시오. 보다 많은 지식을 갖춘 사람이 훌륭한 판매 직원입니다. 그리고 항상 익스트림 뷰티 브랜드를 최상의 위치에 진열하십시오. 매출을 올리는데 도움이 되도록 진열에 필요한 홍보물들을 저희가 제공하겠습니다. 그리고 각 제품별로 홍보물이 적절하게 배치되었는지 확인하시길 바랍니다. 브랜드화는 저희 업계에서 매우 중요합니다. 그래서 유사한 브랜드 제품들끼리 그룹을 만들면 고객들에게 더욱 강한 인상을 줄 수 있습니다. 이것은 고객들의 주의를 끄는데 도움이 될 것입니다.

자신의 역량을 넘는 욕심을 부리지 마세요 Hair Plus • Tarrant, AL “욕심”. 사전에는 “어떠한 것을 정도에 지나치게 탐 내거나 누리고자 하는 마음” 이라 정의되어 있다. 많 은 철학자 또는 성인들은 욕심을 버리라고 조언한다. 그 이유는 불행과 안 좋은 일들이 대부분 지나친 욕심 에서 비롯되기 때문이라고 한다. 재산에 대한 욕심, 명예에 대한 욕심, 승부에 대한 욕심, 음식에 대한 욕 심, 장수에 대한 욕심 등, 욕심은 그 형태도 다양하다. 인간은 본능이라는 것을 가지고 있는 동물이며, 생존 을 위해서 태생적으로 욕심을 가지고 태어난 상태이 다. 따라서 본능적인 것을 거스르며 이를 억제하기란 여간 쉬운 일이 아니다. 하지만, 인간은 이성을 가지 고 있는 동물인지라, 환경, 교육, 인성에 따라 그 욕심 을 억누를 수 있는 능력을 키울 수 있는 것이다. 그렇 지만 안타깝게도, 작금의 시대를 살아가는 사람들은 그 욕심의 정도가 점점 심해져만 가는 것 같다. 자기 만의 이익을 위해 남의 재산을 탐하고, 강탈하고, 심 지어는 살인까지도 일어나고 있는게 현실인 것이다.

점점 심해지는 경쟁사회 속에서 남을 배려하고, 타인 에게 양보하는 것은 더욱 어려운 일이 되어가고 있는 것 같다. 한지만, 욕심수치를 낮추고 마음의 여유를 갖고 살아가는 사람들도 많다는 것 또한 사실이다. 이 번에 OTC 뷰티 매거진에서 인터뷰를 한 alabama 주 Tarrant 시에 위치한 Hair Plus 의 신정민 사장이 그러 한 사람들 중 하나이다. 그녀의 편안함은 어디서 오는 지, 인터뷰를 통해 알아보도록 하자.


쾌적한 스토어 공간 91년도에 남편의 직장관계로 온 가족이 미국으로 이민을 오게 된 신사장은 한국에선 사회활동이 전무한 평범한 주 부였다. “처음에 이 스토어를 시작할 때도 집에 혼자 있는 것이 무료해 소일거리로 시작하게 되었습니다” 라는 신사 장은, 95년도에 뷰티 업계에 입문하여 지금까지 17년 동 안 스토어를 운영하고 있다. 신사장의 Beauty Plus 스토 어를 들어가 보면, 실제 공간인 4,000 sq ft 보다 훨씬 넓 어 보였다. 그러한 대는, 보통의 스토어보다 훨씬 넓게 배 치한 선반과, 보통의 스토어보다 낮은 선반들로 인해 탁 트인 시각적 효과 때문이었다. “처음에 시작한 스토어가 1,200 sq ft 의 작은 공간이라 고객들이 통로를 지나다니 기도 불편할 정도여서 좀더 편리한 쇼핑 환경을 만들어 주기 위해 선반들을 넓게 배치하였습니다” 라는 신사장 은, 하지만 이제는 제품들이 많이 늘다 보니 제품을 진열 할 공간이 조금 아쉽다고는 한다. 물론, 조금 더 많은 제 품들을 진열해 놓으면 판매에는 도움이 되겠지만, 쾌적한 쇼핑환경을 고객들에 만들어 줌으로 해서 상승되는 매상 증대 효과도 만만치 않을 것이란 생각이 든다.

친근한 맞춤형 서비스 유���인구가 많지 않은 곳에서 17년간 스토어를 운영하다 보니, 스토어를 방문하는 대부분의 고객들을 알고 있다고 한다. 소위 말하는 ‘단골’ 들이 많다는 것이다. “고객층이 넓지 않아 저희 스토어를 방문하는 대부분의 고객들 성향 을 어느 정도 파악하고 있습니다” 라는 신사장은, 고객들 이 주로 구입을 하는 제품들은 물론, 개인적인 성격까지 파 악을 하여 맞춤으로 서비스를 하고 있다고 한다. 본인이 사 용하는 제품만을 선호하는 고객들에게는 그들이 사용해 왔 고, 원하는 제품들을 정확히 찾아주는 반면, 좀 부드럽고 새로운 제품을 선호하는 고객들에게는 그들이 사용하는 제 품 외에 다른 제품들을 권해주기도 한다고 한다. 식당을 들 어 갔을 때 본인을 알아봐 주고 주로 먹는 음식을 직원이 알고 있다면, 소비자로써 대우를 받고 있다는 느낌을 받을 것이고, 그 직원과 식당을 친근하게 생각하는 것은 당연한 December 2012 OTC Beauty Magazine

일이다. 이는, 꼭 식당이 아닌 다른 스토어에서도 마찬가지일 것이다. 고객들이 가져오는 리턴 또한, 극단적인 경우를 제외 하고는 거의 고객의 요구를 들어주는 편이라고 한다. 심지어, 도둑을 발각 했을 때는 주로 그냥 보내주고 시간이 지나 나중 에 다시 스토어를 찾아와도 별말 없이 고객으로서 대응을 해 준다고 한다. “손님들과의 마찰은 주로 피하는 편입니다. 제 가 손님들에게 강하게 한다고 해서 그들의 성향이 바뀌지는 않는 것 같습니다” 라고 신사장은 덧붙인다. 고객의 인종을 막론하고, 이렇게 친근한 서비스를 제공해 주는 것은 분명 긍 정적인 판매를 유발해 낼 것임이 틀림 없다.

타고난 천성 신사장의 이러한 너그러움은 그녀의 성격에서 나오는 것 같 았다. “이 스토어를 운영하면서 자식들 학교를 다 보냈습니 다. 저는 그것으로 만족합니다“ 라는 신사장은, 본인의 스토 어도 전국적인 불경기를 비껴가진 않았지만 조급해 하지 않 았다. 오히려, 자식들의 뒷바라지를 해야 하는 상황의 다른 스토어 오너들을 걱정하고 있었다. “이것이 내게 주어진 것 이고 이것이 제가 가지고 태어난 역량이라 생각합니다” 라며 주워진 상황을 받아 들이고 편안해 하는 모습이었다. 대체적 으로 불경기를 겪고 있는 많은 스토어들이 이러한 상황을 극 복하기 위해 가격을 낮추고, 타 스토어를 공격하는 모습을 종종 볼 수 있다. 물론, 대부분이 어쩔 수 없는 생존을 위한 투쟁인 것이지만, 드물게는 본인의 욕심을 채우기 위한 스토 어 오너들도 있다. 과연, 그런 과도한 욕심들로 본인의 행복 지수가 얼마나 올라갈진 모르지만, 그러한 와중에 본인도 엄

청난 스트레스를 받을 것임은 분명한 사실일 것이다. 스토어 규모를 늘리고, 스 토어 숫자를 늘리는 것이 성공의 지표로 보일 수도 있지만, 주어진 것에서 행복 을 느낄 수 있는 사람들이 더 성공한 사람일 수도 있다는 생각을 해본다.

요즘 많은 스토어 오너들이 힘들어하고 있다. 결정적인 이유는 물론, 불경기로 인한 판매 저하일 것이다. 대다수의 오너들은 스토어를 통해 생활을 영위하고 있어 많은 불안감이 엄습해 올 것이다. 하지만 조바심을 낸다고 해서 상황이 크 게 달라지지는 않을 것이다. 그 동안 이를 극복하기 위해 많은 노력을 해 왔음에 도 불구하고 커다란 변화가 이뤄지지 않았다면, 이제는 한 발짝 물러서서 한숨 을 돌리고 새로운 방법과 비전을 찾을 수 있는 휴식기가 필요할 수도 있다. 말이 쉽다고 할 수도 있다. 하지만 조금만 마음의 여유를 갖고자 노력 한다면, 조금은 조급함을 달랠 수도 있을 것이다. 이번에 Beauty Plus 의 신사장과의 인터뷰를 통해 본인의 마음가짐이 얼마나 중요한 지를 느끼게 되었다. 자신에게 주어진 것에 만족할 수 있다면, 마음의 고통도, 스트레스도 모두 날려버릴 수 있는 것이 다. 조금만 욕심을 버리고 다른 많은 행복한 것들이 찾아올 마음의 여유를 가져 보도록 하자.

Clip Clip Snip Snip for the Holidays! The Holidays are a busy time of the year for hair stylists and barbers, YOUR professional customers. These are the customers each and every beauty supply store owner/manager should get to know on a first name basis. They will be the most consistent customers you have shopping in your store. As the store of choice you should be catering to them by stocking your shelves with the proper “Professional Tools” that they use and purchase from you.

ThERaPy TREndS United We Stand for the Holidays The elections are behind us and ‘tis the season to be real. Early 2012 started off sluggish and spending was conservative. Consumer confidence recovered by the third quarter. Consumers began to spend on the luxuries that awaited them in their local OTC: hair care products and appliances, skin regimens and artificial everything. Better than expected sales gains have been a gift as we approached the holiday season. Beauty products have upgraded over the past year. Innovation in hair care, hair color and ancillary categories has been enormous. Innovation commanded top pricing in mass retailers. High end skin care technologies, available in mass outlets should be available in OTCs. OTC pricing on high end products and appliances is justified as consumers want to emulate luxury or the professional endorsement of salon brands. Consumers have become more comfortable with the higher price points. This year’s consumer has been trained to be frugal but to expect the best. Fashion orientation, convenience and therapeutic performance were drivers of spending growth. Trendy products stimulated the need to stock a variety of shades, product forms and sizes. OTC’s will have to stock up on products that priced right. “Priced right” does not mean priced low. “Priced right” means the right products with the right competitive edge. Clients are ready to spend but spend wisely. This willingness to spend is truly a gift for OTCs. Following the key categories that are driven by state of the art beauty inventions could mean a bright New Year.

CUT IT OUT:

Help Turn Tragedy in to Action to Help Stop Domestic Violence Sign Up Now To Receive Complimentary CUT IT OUT Materials for Your Supply location I personally find this to be a challenging issue so I decided to yield this article to the PBA and this incredible cause. Please read and respond accordingly. Having recently marked the one year anniversary of the salon shooting tragedy in Seal Beach, Calif., and now two more tragedies at salons in Milwaukee,Wis. and Clearwater, Fla. in the past few months. Domestic violence continues to plague our society and was a root cause in all of these incidents.While sending heartfelt condolences to the victims, their families and the broader salon community, the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) urges beauty professionals to pledge their support for the CUT IT OUT program to help end domestic violence. CUT IT OUT is a program of the PBA Foundation and is dedicated to mobilizing salon professionals and others to fight the epidemic of domestic abuse in communities across the United States. CUT IT OUT builds awareness and trains salon professionals to recognize warning signs and safely refer clients and fellow salon professionals to local resources. Salon professionals have the extraordinary opportunity to give hope and help to clients and co-workers who are in abusive relationships. What you can do: • Go to www.probeauty.org/cutitout. Sign the online pledge form and select the complimentary CUT IT OUT materials for your supply location, salon, spa or school. • Display the CUT IT OUT materials at your location, salon/spa’s front desk, individual stations, break rooms and the restroom. Materials are discreet, available in English and Spanish and have a toll free number that can be easily removed where victims can call to get help, regardless of their location. • (Optional) Schedule a one-hour CUT IT OUT training for your salon, spa or school.Visit www.cutitout.org/training.html for additional information. • Share your salon’s involvement in CUT IT OUT by promoting it through social media channels. Using the “power of beauty,” our industry can help women and men across this country know they are not alone and help them to get the help they need. PBA urges the industry to come together and support CUT IT OUT so that tragedies like these do not happen again!

Jinny Fall Show CH I CAG O

2012 Follwing

the Miami event, the Jinny Trade Show made its way to the chilly climate of Chicago on October 14. attracting participating vendors, OTC store owners and their families alike, this event was once again a success. Taking advantage of show-only deals and the unique opportunity to speak directly to manufacturer representatives, over 150 registered customers made a great choice by stopping by the Chicago branchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s JBS Cash and Carry Building. Talking with vendor representatives gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about the products they purchase as well as marketing tips for selling them in their stores. Beyond the financial advantages of attending, customers were able to add to their product knowledge and selling skill set. With only two more installments left, the fall show series left this location and moved on to the west coast for the Los angeles show. Stay tuned!

customers and vendor partners broke out their sunglasses and sunscreen as the Jinny Corp. fall show made a stop at the Los angeles location on October 21. along with the sunshine and warm temperatures customers basked in, they were also able to rack up on valuable product deals. For the first time the show was held in the Jinny Beauty Supply building in La. Instead of renting space for the event, the staff was able to come together and provide a truly unique show for company customers. Gathering with fellow attendees, 90 store owners signed in throughout the day, eager to see what special sales offers awaited them on the show floor. Given the ability to work together, prepare the company building for the show, and provide a successful event, Jinny Corp. was able to gain a newfound confidence and sense of unity. This was a great way to end the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time on the west coast before making its final stop in Houston. 88

Jinny Fall Show Hou st o n

2012 all

good things must come to an end, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they say. Proving this statement true, Jinny Corp. wrapped up their final show season on October 28 at the Houston location. These shows, which have been in existence since 1996, attracted crowds of customers year after year. Continuing the tradition of offering attendees the ability to meet with their trusted manufacturers face-toface, see new products up close and to take advantage of special one-day deals, the Houston show lived up to all that Jinny shows were started as and had grown to become. With a turnout of 100 registered stores and over 100 vendors, once again the show was a success. For one last time customers enjoyed a prize raffle at the close of the day, along with a hot meal for lunch. These were only a few of the added perks provided at the event. although these will no longer be available with the ending of the shows, more exciting things are sure to come from Jinny Corp. in the future. 94
