EDITORIAL LETTER

Generally Speaking There’s no doubt that wet hair products are the cornerstone at many OTCs, but general merchandise is an equally important component. Whether it’s jewelry and hair bonnets or clothing and flip flops, this category is broad but necessary. Beauty supply stores are quickly becoming the go-to place not just for multicultural beauty but for our other needs, as well. Throughout the years, we’ve seen everything from socks and shapewear in beauty aisles to trendy accessories and cosmetics. Hair products may be the draw, but sales can be increased with general merchandise. That’s why we’ve dedicated much of this issue to educating our readers on the most popular general products at Jinny Beauty Supply. We kick things off with our Marketplace, showcasing 12 general merchandise items that are hot at Jinny. Check that out on page 12. Our feature story taps into the essential merchandise you should have in store: personal protective equipment. Learn more about what customers are expecting to see so that you can be prepared on page 44. And as usual, check out the hottest-selling products in the general merchandise category at Jinny. This month’s focus: detangling products and tools. You likely have tons of detanglers in stock, but we’ll share which five SKUs are selling the best. Suppose you’ve already stocked up on your general merchandise for the month. In that case, Merchandising Specialist Scott Zangwill offers a few tips on how to increase foot traffic and sales with this particular product category on page 18. But don’t worry, we’re not solely focused on general merchandise in this edition. We worked alongside our manufacturers to provide some educational materials on some of their latest offerings, which are sure to help you sell more to your customers. I hope you find this issue of OTC Beauty Magazine to be particularly Jessica De Vault Hale EDITOR

MARKET PLACE

General Merchandise It’s easy to focus on the innovations of the latest shampoo, conditioner and styling aid. But part of the draw for beauty supply stores is not only their vast selection of multicultural hair products but the wide selection of general merchandise, as well. From clothing to hair tools, these items are just as necessary as your inventory of wet products and are essential to our customers. Check out a few of our most popular general merchandise items at Jinny Beauty Supply.

LASH GLUE When lashes are the name of the game, you can’t go wrong with the Ardell Duo Adhesive. A makeup artist favorite for years, this eyelash glue applies white and dries clear, providing all-day wear for strip and individual lashes. Plus, it is formaldehyde and latex-free.

CURVED BRUSH When you’re rocking waves or want to keep your hair brushed to perfection, grab the Dream World DeluX Professional Curved Palm Brush. These brushes are made with100% natural boar bristles and are available in soft, medium and hard textures.

RAZORS There’s nothing handier than a small razor that can be used for touch-ups for eyebrows or facial hair. The Tinkle Eyebrow Razor is the perfect tool to do just that. Its stainless steel blade is sharp enough to shave unwanted hair but delicate enough for sensitive skin.

12

OTC Beauty Magazine February 2021


EYEBROW TINT Covering gray hairs in your mane is one thing, but what about your eyebrows? Don’t worry, the Cover Your Gray Total Brow Eyebrow Sealer & Color. It adds a natural tint and is available in four shades. And thanks to the tapered brush applicator, you can achieve full coverage easily.

MAKEUP BRUSHES There’s no doubt that makeup brushes can be pricey. Whether you need a foundation or fan brush, Brittny carries an extensive collection of brushes. Your customers will enjoy the high-quality brushes and their affordable price point.

HAIR THICKENER Balding and thinning hair are very real issues for many of your shoppers. That’s why the Jerome Russell Hair Color Thickener is a great recommendation for those in need of extra coverage. This product covers up areas of light-to-medium balding and also touches up grey hair between colorings.

BEARD TINT There’s nothing fun about finding gray hair. But what do you do when that gray hair is in your mustache or beard? We recommend the Godefroy Barbers Choice beard and mustache tint for up to six weeks of rich, vibrant color.

CROCHET HOOKS Your professional stylists will always need a crochet needle, especially if they have clients who wear locs. The Brittny Dreadlock Crochet Hook is a reliable tool that is lightweight and easy to carry for on-the-go maintenance.

COTTON BALLS Whether you need them for removing nail polish or makeup, you can never have enough cotton balls. These Spectra Cotton Balls are 100% pure cotton and are available in a jumbo size for ease of use.

HAIR GLUE When you’re installing a quick weave or need to add a few tracks of hair to your style for fullness, you’ll definitely need the Maxi Bonding Glue. This staple will always be a necessity for professional and amateur stylists.

Kuza® 100% Indian Hemp Hair & Scalp Treatment has a blend of fine oils (including coconut, sweet almond and avocado) and natural herbs. Soybean oil is also included, and it is an unsung hero for moisture retention. Naturally Curly shared in April 2018 that soybean oil’s main asset to hair is moisture retention because it is full of good fatty acids, manganese, and vitamins. Soybean oil is a key ingredient of many Hollywood Beauty® Hero Oils like Tea Tree, Vitamin E, Olive, Coconut, Jojoba and Jamaican Black Castor.

PPE | The New General Merchandise You Must Have

General merchandise in the beauty industry often refers to brushes, combs, applicator bottles and more. But it turns out that the essential general merchandise to have in store is your Personal Protective Equipment, also known as PPE. The pandemic has required us to wear PPE for our safety. Since beauty supply stores have reopened, OTC owners have scrambled to offer the PPE the public was seeking. Face masks for the general public were a given, but your customers who are beauty professionals may need a bit more supplies to ensure they maintain a clean and safe environment while they work. When customers come to your store for hair products, they will likely be pleasantly surprised to see an inventory of masks, gloves and more. Make your store a one-stop-shop with these on-demand products. See something you’d like to order? All products are available through your sales representative at Jinny Beauty Supply!

FACE MASKS AND SHIELDS Every store carries face masks now, so why shouldn’t you? Bulk disposable face masks are a necessity for beauty professionals, so keep the best in stock. We

recommend the Brittny Face Mask 50-Piece Box. These three-layer masks have a high-density filter ply for comfortable breathability.

The transparent Brittny Face Shield is also a viable

face-protecting option. While the Center for Disease

Control does not recommend using a face shield as an alternative to a mask, it can be a great way to double your protection when worn with a mask underneath.

CLIPPER TIPS Sponsored by Andis Co.

Fluid Volume 2 An Andis Hair Tech Publication By Kenny Duncan

Andis US Team Lead Educator The latest Andis style and education collection fusing high fashion with cutting-edge techniques is here! Featuring five step-by-step styles in both print and video, this collection is dedicated to embracing heritage and the natural beauty of multi-cultural, textured hair. Plus, it showcases the latest tools from Andis– the new Slimline® Pro GTX™ trimmer and Copper ProFoil® shaver. Embracing diversity is important, especially in the barbering industry, where understanding different hair types is key to success. In Fluid Vol. 2, Andis has produced a hair pattern chart that defines what type of hair each client has. Knowing which hair pattern type(s) barbers or stylists will be working with, will influence the final cut length of hair. The collection features two female and three male models, with hair pattern types ranging from a 2C to a 4C, providing a great range of instruction for the different hair types identified. Two styles from Fluid Vol. 2 – the Classic Philly, a wavy brush cut with faded nape and temples, and the Tignon Drop, a naturally curled mohawk with faded sides and a free-flowing design – are great examples of how this collection focuses on techniques primarily used on curly hair. Techniques include creating symmetrical hairlines, freehand trimming, creating designs and fading with and without attachment combs. Both your professional and home haircutters will benefit from this content. Selecting the right tools for these different hair types is crucial, and the Slimline Pro GTX trimmer and Copper Pro Foil shaver deliver on creating precision cuts. I would suggest placing these new Andis tools in the line of sight of your register to increase both awareness and impulse purchases. To find out more about the Fluid Vol. 2 collection and featured Andis tools, visit andis.com today!

THERAPY TRENDS DIY Pandemic Beauty By Elayne McClaine Consumers may be adopting a new approach to beauty, and it has everything to do with getting ready for a Zoom call. A quarantined beauty regimen calls for minimal involvement. Due to social distancing rules and consumers who work remotely, the need for hair appliances has greatly diminished. Your customers will not forget about beauty, but the frequency of having to be “on” has lessened. Who knew that blowing air and hair around could contribute to a super spreader event! Therefore, we now have fewer salon visits and more downtime for pandemic beauty strategies. Although the hair tool and appliance business declined by 1% in 2020 for both salons and consumers, Do it Yourself (DIY) strategies surged. Consumers embraced innovative hot dryer brushes, curl drying diffusers and scalp massagers to style their hair at home. These multitasking tools are key to reducing styling time for a quick and easy routine. The idea is simple: If you can’t go to the stylist, bring home the stylist services. The rationale for using appliances may be revisited once consumers get back out to work and play. However, it has been proven that habits adopted during the post-COVID-19 crisis are not easy to break. OTC dealers may find that consumers will only shop online now; it will be best to meet them there. Consumers will respond to sporadic or lessened professional treatments. They will also buy fewer appliances but spend more on products. Once the economy is back, consumers will embrace routines that have efficiency and efficacy. Males may also reconsider the use of clippers and trimmers to experiment with DIY barbering techniques. The future for hair tools and appliances will eventually heat up. Virtual visits and meetings will require straighteners, curling irons and rods, and other hot tools. As a result, OTC dealers should implement DIY merchandising for a number of beauty categories. Elayne McClaine has identified and developed emerging domestic and global trends in hair care, skincare and other consumer categories for such firms as Chesebrough-Pond’s, Revlon and Pharmacia (div. of Pfizer). Her expertise in therapeutic treatments for hair, skin and scalp led to the creation of the Women’s Institute for Fine and Thinning Hair, sponsored by Rogaine. McClaine has been acknowledged by the American Academy of Dermatologists for marketing and promotional excellence. ESME Market Specialists, LLC consults with firms that require expertise in strategy development, multicultural marketing and account planning.
