Expert Advice by Leanne Molter

Add New Life To Your Hair! Building Confidence with Healthy Radiant Hair Extensions


any women are unhappy with their hair, while there are endless professional solutions and new opportunities. It usually is because of reasons like lack of volume, body, texture or the inability to grow the desired length of hair. As a beauty industry supplier, it is important to offer beauty professionals and clients alike the best quality products and versatile tools. Professional salon hair extensions are one of the most versatile beauty tools that will solve many of the challenges your clients may have. There are countless cases of women who have decided to make the life change, go for hair extensions and never look back! Having beautiful hair makes women feel great about themselves and their image. It boosts self-esteem, confidence and it also genuinely makes women and men look more attractive and healthier. Since there are times where creams, lotions and potions can’t fix a problem; hair extensions are often a wonderful alternative to image enhancement rituals. As the most versatile tool in the beauty industry, hair extensions may be used to add length while also adding new volume and body. They can also help with clients whose hair has been damaged by chemical treatments. If a client wants some haircolor highlights or texture added but their hair is too fragile for chemical treatment, it is possible to gently add hair extensions 12

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

as a chemical-free haircolor or texture adding alternative. The options and possibilities with hair extensions are endless. One hundred percent Remy human hair extensions can be brushed, washed, curled, permed, haircolored and flat ironed just as though it is your own natural hair. Vikki Parman, CEO and the Top Platform Artist at Di Biase Hair Extensions USA shares, “One of the most important points to consider when a hairstylist is providing professional hair extension services is the hair you are using. The quality of the hair you select is very important. Better quality hair will give your client a much more natural head of hair to help instill more self-esteem and to improve their self-confidence. Many hair extension companies treat their hair differently. Some companies chemically bathe their hair and others use gentle hand washing techniques. Many important factors like this should be considered when trying to find the best hair extensions brand for any hair extension service.” Though hair extensions are a fantastic tool, they often get a bad reputation because of the way they used to be applied. There isn’t just one way to apply hair extensions anymore. Today, there are a variety of application techniques. They are offered in weft, clip-in, keratin bond, I-tip and sticker/ adhesive.

Sticker/adhesive hair extensions are a great way to have a client test out hair extensions for the first time. The sticker/ adhesive hair extensions don’t last as long and are more affordable, yet the client will get the experience of having long, luscious locks. They will quickly see if hair extensions are right for them. Vikki Parman says, “Sticker/adhesive hair extensions are often held together by a thin keratin tip or weft to an adhesive tape. The hair extension is attached by wrapping the sticker/adhesive hair extension around thin horizontal sections of hair. The width of the section depends on the brand of hair extension. The more versatile sticker/adhesive hair extensions are ones that are smaller and more closely resemble the fusion method of application. The smaller the section of hair needed

for each sticker, the more versatile the hairstyling options will be.” Tips you can share with your hairstylist customers who purchase hair extensions: - When providing hair extension services and products, it is vitally important to schedule an initial consultation with your client. This will give you the opportunity to carefully listen to their hair desires and also their concerns. Inquire about your client’s lifestyle, health, hobbies and home care regimens before offering any service or product. Then, you may give in-depth haircare instructions to your client, so her January 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine


Expert Advice

hair extensions will stay fabulous for months and throughout her daily activities. It is always good to hear what they actually want before sharing creative options and hair extension opportunities. This will help build their confidence in you, hair extensions and your business. - Be sure to thoroughly analyze your client’s hair to make sure their hair is in a condition that will enable a successful hair extensions application. Explain your haircare analysis, while sharing the wonderful benefits available through a variety of hair extension makeovers and application options. Select the hair quality and best application method for your client’s hair extensions. Some clients may benefit more from a custom made clip-in or adhesive hair extension application which is more temporary, while others may benefit most from the usual long-lasting fusion and bonded hair extension applications. - One of the biggest challenges with hair extensions today is that many hairstylists and other beauty experts do not have the proper training for hair extensions. As a beauty industry supplier, it could be a wise move to offer hair extension training and certification classes in the brands of hair extensions that 14

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

you sell. Often manufacturers and distributors offer training in products and services. That way, your clients will always receive the best services, products and experiences. Hair extensions are one of the biggest and fastest growing beautycare trends today. It is very exciting to be able to completely change a person’s hair in one day. It is no wonder why hair extensions are making their way into many people’s everyday life. ---The expert advice in this article was written by Leanne Molter and was provided by Vikki Parman; CEO and Director of Education of Di Biase Hair Extensions USA.

Finished Product by Brooke Watson

FACIAL SCRUBS There’s nothing quite like the refreshing feeling that comes after ridding your face of the makeup, dirt and build up that accumulates throughout the day. Soap and water do the trick of cleaning skin thoroughly, but sometimes a deeper clean is necessary. This is when facial scrubs come in handy, ridding the face of dead skin cells and revealing fresh new, glowing skin underneath. Exfoliation 101 Unclogging and shrinking pores, reducing the likelihood of acne breakouts, diminishing fine lines and keeping skin fresh, facial scrubs are a key component to many skin care regimens. Scrubs are exfoliation products specifically designed for use on the delicate skin of the face. Exfoliation is a process that removes dead skin cells that develop over time, allowing new cells underneath to shine through. Regular use can keep skin smooth and glowing, according to, and many also contain a moisturizer to nourish the newly exposed cells. 28

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

The necessity of this will be discussed later. Used by both men and women, credit has been given to the ancient Egyptians for beginning the practice of exfoliation. Using natural ingredients and even wine in the Middle Ages, it was quite the creative act. Nonetheless, people the world over saw a need to pamper and care for skin, and developed an effective solution. It has evolved to take the form of chemical and physical exfoliation, both of which are effective for beautification and overall well-being.

January 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine


Finished Product Product Types Facial scrubs come in two forms, both of which confront the exfoliation process in different ways: chemical and physical. According to the Digital Doctor at, over the counter chemical exfoliates use ingredients like salicylic, glycolic, citric or lactic acid to chemically remove dry, dead cells that rest on the skin’s surface. Many appear in low concentrations, but their presence still strips away unwanted cells for a glowing complexion. Physical exfoliates can be made up of sugars, salts, oatmeal, beads or even fruit derivatives/pits to clear skin of impurities. Often mixed with an oil base of some sort, they are put to work via the mechanical action of applying to the face (or body) with an application item – this can be a regular wash cloth, your own hands, or a soft brush. No matter the mode of application, when rubbed in a circular motion it works its magic best. Harsher exfoliants like ground pumice or sands are not used for face scrubs, but may appear in products for the body.


OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

Aside from scrubs, be aware that there are also other products used for skin pampering. Mud masks, facial peels and other specialty cleansers can be used to create the ultimate at home facial experience. Your more crafty customers may also be interested in making their own scrubs. This is possible, but you want to be sure to stock the best products in your store so they will not feel the need to create their own.

Easy Does It

Contrary to what you might have heard, you can have too much of a good thing. It is important to remember that although facial scrubs are effective and can help with keeping skin healthy and clear, they should be used in moderation. Skin on the face is sensitive and using a scrub too excessively could irritate it. For this reason, use these products sparingly – for example 2-3 times a week. Of course it depends on your skin type as to exactly how

often it is needed, but everyday use is not recommended. It is perfectly fine to remove dead skin cells via this practice, but keep in mind that they were originally there to protect the new, fresh cells that lay beneath them. This is why it is important to not overdo it when exfoliating. A little refreshing is good, but too much can damage the delicate new skin underneath. Also urge customers to use a moisturizer to nourish the newly exposed cells; they are not used to the harsh weather conditions and environmental toxins in the air that await them, so they need added protection. Facial scrubs are designed for use on the face, but exfoliation does not have to be confined to the one area. The entire body sheds skin cells and can benefit from a good sloughing every once and again. Encourage your customers to stay healthy from head to toe by offering facial scrubs as well as an array of exfoliating soaps. Let the true beauty of skin shine on!

The New Year is celebrated in

many ways. Some of us have parties, some travel to be with family, some prefer the quiet of a few friends at home. Whichever way we celebrate we will welcome the New Year 2013 because no matter what the old year brought, the New Year is the chance to change the negative things and to fulfill some of our hopes and dreams. We make New Year’s resolutions of various kinds – lose weight, exercise, give to charity, etc. It’s true that most of these resolutions only last a short time, but it is important to make time and to try to improve our lives in the New Year. Just the fact that we are here in 2013 is a blessing in itself. New Year’s resolutions can also pertain to your OTC business. The year 2012 was difficult for many businesses. The economy was down, but we all made it through to 2013. This is the time – at the beginning of the year – to have a positive attitude towards the way you are going to do business in 2013.

새해를 축하하는 방법은 다양하다. 가족들과 함께 파티를 열거나, 여행을 가기도 하고, 어떤 이들은 몇몇 친구들 과 집에서 조용히 보내기를 선호하기도 한다. 어떤 식의 축하든 우리는 2013년 새해를 환영하고 있다. 지난 해가 가져 다 준 것이 무엇이든간에, 새해는 부정 적인 것들을 바꾸고 우리의 희망과 꿈을 실행할 수 있는 기회가 되기 때문이다. 우리는 다양한 종류의 새해 각오를 만든 다. 다이어트, 운동, 자선 활동, 등등. 물 론 대부분의 새해 각오가 단지 잠깐 동안만 지속될 뿐이긴 하지만, 시 간을 내서 새해 우리의 삶을 개선하기 위한 노력을 기울인다는 것이 중요하다. 우리가 2013년 여기에 있다는 사실만으로도 축복이다. 새해 각오는 당신의 OTC 비즈니스와도 관련될 수 있다. 2012년은 많은 비즈니스들이 어려운 시기를 겪었다. 경기는 침체되 었지만, 우리는 2013년까지 무사히 이끌고 왔다. 한 해의 시작인 바 로 지금은, 2013년 당신이 가고자하는 사업의 방향을 향해 긍정적인 태도를 가져야할 때이다. 시간을 가지고 생각을 정리한 다음, OTC 비 즈니스를 더욱 성공적으로 만들기 위한 긍정적인 행동들을 나열해서 적어봐라. 목록을 만드는 것은 아주 강력한 힘을 발휘한다. 물론 목 록에 기록한 모든 것을 실행하지 않을지도 모르지만, 그 중 몇 가지는

Just the day-to-day routine things that need to be done can be exhausting and leave you with not much time left to do anything extra to help make your business more successful in 2013.

Knowledge to Know by Cindy Tawiah

The Proper Use of Oils and Their Purpose 오일의 올바른 사용 법과 목적


he human scalp naturally produces oil known as sebum which helps to reduce flakiness and prevents hair from looking dull and dry. Application of oils to the hair and

scalp should be done sparingly or in moderation. The main thing that black hair needs is moisture which needs to be replenished routinely to ensure healthy hair. That being said there are a variety of oil-based products which promise to alleviate dryness and have been known to work. A few of these oils are Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Argan Oil to mention a few. For years women have greased their scalps, bathed in oils and requested hot oil treatments or applied the oils to their hair. The objective was to relieve dryness and give dull, dry hair a shine. Olive Oil has superior penetrating power and is sometimes used in brilliantine hair dressings, emollients, eyelash oils, lipstick, nail polish removers, shampoos, face powder, anti wrinkle creams and massage oils. It is a pale yellow or greenish oil obtained from ripe olives grown around the Mediterranean Sea. Coconut Oil is another oil which is contained in hair dressing products, soaps and shampoos. It lathers readily and is a great skin cleanser. Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) is used to make cocoa butter and is a solid fat expressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa plant. It helps heal or fade stretch marks and scars and can also be used in haircare preparations. Argania Spinosa (Argan tree from Morocco) produces Argan Oil. It has become a widely used oil in many products and has been widely marketed for cosmetic use as a Moroccan Oil.

간의 두피는 흔히 피지로 알려진 천연 오일을 생산하는데, 이것은 두피가 조각조각 얇게 벗 겨지는 것을 감소시키고 모발이 푸석하고 건 조해지는 것을 방지하는데 도움이 된다. 모발과 두피에는 소량이나 적당량의 오일을 사용해야만 한다. 검은 모발에 주로 필요한 것은 건강한 모발을 유지하기 위해 정기적으 로 수분을 보충하는 것이다. 그러나 건조함을 완화시켜준 다고 약속하며 실제로도 효과가 좋은 것으로 알려진 다양 한 종류의 오일 베이스 제품들이 있다. 이 가운데 언급할 수 있는 몇몇 제품들이 바로 올리브 오일, 코코넛 오일 그 리고 아르간 오일이다. 수년간 여성들은 두피에 기름을 바르고, 오일 목 욕을 하며, 자신의 모발에 오일을 바르거나 핫 오일 트리 트먼트를 해왔다. 목표는 건조함을 없애고 푸석하고 건 조한 모발을 윤기나게 만드는 것이다. 올리브 오일은 아 주 강력한 침투력을 가지고 있어서 때때로BriLLianTine( 브릴리언틴 혹은 포마드)헤어 드레싱, 화장수, 속눈썹 오 일, 립스틱, 매니큐어 리무버, 샴푸, 페이스 파우더, 주름 방지 크림이나 마사지 오일로 사용된다. 지중해 근처에서 잘 자란 올리브에서 얻는 옅은 노란색이나 녹색빛을 띄는 오일이다. 코코넛 오일은 헤어 드레싱 제품, 비누, 그리고 샴 푸에 포함되는 또 다른 오일이다. 거품이 쉽게 나서 피부 클린저로 아주 좋다. 카카오 나무는 코코아 버터를 만드 는데 사용되며, 코코아 버터는 코코아 식물의 볶은 씨에 서 추출한 고체 지방이다. 이것은 스트레치 마크(튼살)나 상처를 연하게 하거나 치료하는데 도움이 될 뿐 아니라,

Argan Oil contains Tocopherols (vitamin E) and is also known for its healing properties. Oils applied directly to hair can cause hair to become weighed down and greasy. It can also lead to product build up on the scalp which leads to flakiness and cause the scalp to itch. The percentage of oil in quality hair care product formulas is in minimal portions. These are very light oils not as heavy as with the hot oil and olive oils. These hair care formulations are also blended with proteins, conditioners, and moisturizers which further reduce the portions of oil. Moisture is the key to healthy hair. After all when a plant is dry and it is in soil we water it or hydrate it. We don’t pour oil in the soil. Dry hair should be treated the same way using products which help add or maintain moisture levels in the hair. And if oils are used they should be done sparingly and not as a matter of routine. Try putting a drop of oil on a blank piece of paper and January 2013

• Protect your assets from lawsuits. One way to do this is by protectively titling non-exempt assets. Exempt assets vary by state and may include such things as your primary residence and personal furniture; make sure to check your specific state exemptions – those items generally should not need any extra protection. However, non-exempt assets, such as bank accounts, recreational vehicles and the like, should be titled in the names of corporations, limited partnerships, domestic trusts and other entities. • Have adequate insurance. In fact, over-insure your assets! Those include -- but are not limited to -- your car, home, and other valuables. You never know what you could lose in a natural disaster. • Diversify your assets geographically. This is extremely important in the case of natural disasters. Use

그는 다음과 같은 자산 보호에 관한 도움말을 해 주었다.

• 소송으로부터 자산을 보호할 수 있다. 이렇게 할 수 있는 한가지 방법은 비면제 자산에 대해 보다 방어적으로 관심을 기울이는 것이다. 면제 자산은 각 주별로 다를 수 있으며 주요 거주지나 개인 가구 등이 포함될 수 있다. 자신의 해당 주의 면제 목록을 확인해야 한다. - 이러한 항목은 일반적으로는 별도의 보호가 필요하지는 않다. 그러나, 은행 계좌, 레크리에이션 차량과 유사 종류의 비면제 자산들은 법인체나 파트너십, 국내 신탁 및 기타 법인의 이름으로 돌려놓아야 한다.

• 적절한 보험에 가입해라. 사실상, 당신의 자산 가치 이상으로 초과 보험에 가입해라. 여기에는 차량이나 집, 기타 귀중품들이 포함되며 제한은 없다. 자연재해로 당신이 어떤 손실을 보게 될지는 알 수 없는 일이다. January 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

• 당신의 자산을 지리적으로도 다양하게 분산시키라. 이것은 자연 재해의 경우 아주 중요하다. 국제 자산 보호를 사용하면 미국 관할 밖의 국가에 귀중품을 분산하는데 도움을 받을 수 있다.

• Safeguard your paperwork. Collect and copy all paperwork and have it accessible in the event you must evacuate. Give the second copy to a trusted financial advisor, attorney or trustee for safekeeping. Take a video of every room and keep an itemized asset list with your paperwork. That way, you’ll have the documentation to present to your insurance company when filing a claim. Photos and videos, as well as receipts and documents showing the value of those assets will help.

• 서류나 중요한 문서를 보호해라. 모든 문서를 모아 사본을

• Safeguard your business. Create a plan of action to implement in the event of a natural disaster, and practice implementing it. Hurricane Sandy illustrated the problems business owners faced in trying to resume operations during widespread power outages and equipment destroyed by floodwaters. Do you have a generator? Can you utilize cloud computing? Keep a record of all payrolls and business documents remotely so that if you don’t have access to your business dwelling, you can still access copies of all important business documentation.

수 있는 행동 계획을 작성하고, 실행 연습을 해라. 허리케인 샌디는 홍수로 전원 공급이 차단되고 장비들이 파괴된 동안 비즈니스 소유자들이 작업을 재개하려고 했던 문제점들을 지적했다. 당신의 사업체에 발전기가 있는가? 클라우드 컴퓨팅(인터넷상의 서버를 통하여 데이터 저장, 네트워크, 콘텐츠 사용 등 IT 관련 서비스를 한번에 사용할 수 있는 컴퓨팅 환경)을 활용할 수 있는가? 모든 급여 내역과 문서 기록을 원격으로도 보관하면 만일의 경우 당신이 사무실에서 접속할 수 없을 때에도, 모든 중요한 비즈니스 문서의 기록 사본들을 접속할 수가 있다.

• Make sure your estate plan is up to date. Everyone should have an updated Estate Plan, including minor children. Choose one trustworthy person to be the executor of your estate. This person should have a hard copy of your financial account information and list of your assets, including intellectual property and passwords that you can access in the event of a natural disaster.

• 당신의 자산 플랜이 최신 정보인지 확인해라. 미성년자를 포함한 모든 사람들이 업데이트된 자산 플랜을 갖고 있어야만 한다. 신뢰할 수 있는 사람을 당신의 자산 관리자로 선택해라. 이 사람은 지적 재산권 및 자연 재해를 당했을 경우 당신이 접속할 수 있는 비밀 번호를 포함한 당신의 금융 계좌 정보와 자산 목록의 하드 카피를 보관하고 있어야만 한다.

The Boss: The way a boss should relate to their colleagues and subordinates is to treat them with respect and as partners in the business in which they work. Employees perform better if they have a vested interest in the company, are respected, and feel as if they make a difference. Your management style can be that of the authoritarian; but that won’t earn you the loyalty and respect of your subordinates. That’s compliance out of fear! Motivate your staff to get involved via a model of mutual respect and collaboration, not a, “My shoes are bigger than your shoes” attitude. That’s ego, which is temporary and accomplishes nothing permanent. Learn how to speak to others in a non-condescending manner. Be attentive and ask questions. Thank your colleagues and subordinates regularly, and encourage them to research and explore their own ideas. Make a concerted effort to engage your employees on a regular basis and reward their successes. Be a boss you would want to have. The Colleague: Similarly, respect your coworkers – strive to get along, don’t blur too much the line between coworkers and friends. Respect is the key! Have respect for your boss and your coworkers, but also have respect for yourself – champion your work, but

Robert’s Diamond Bond: To Protect Natural Hair and Serve


the Consumer

Healthy hair is all the rage as the ethnic hair care sector embraces the natural hair care trend. Chemicals can be harsh on hair that is already prone to damage and dryness by nature. Unfortunately, hair with a natural curl pattern tends to be more vulnerable to heat and styling damage. This is where the “protective style” becomes handy. A protective style refers to a hassle free style that allows natural hair to remain in a state of rest but still maintain manageability, style and nourishment. One popular style is the braid. They come in all shapes and forms, from cornrow and plaits to twists and coils. The rise in the weave industry has created a market for the versatile natural hair care customer. If weaves and extensions are executed and styled with the right products and with the health of the natural tresses in mind it can be the key to even longer, stronger natural hair. There is nothing new under the sun as the saying goes. Everything from the universe, to the economy and even hair care takes us on a merry-go-round more often than not. Weaves, extensions, wigs and hair pieces date back to the 18th century. God forbid the powdered wig craze rears its ugly head anytime soon but let’s face it, it is not that farfetched to see old styling methods and trends show up where we least expect it. Just take a look at the afro. It has made an appearance at least three times in the last 150 years. Each time with a new variation, but the concept always stays the same. The case with hair pieces is no different. The natural head of hair is either in poor shape or it is just determined that it needs or should be covered for a time. The protective style is similar with one catch. The care of the hair extension and the care of the natural mane is the focus instead of fashion and individual style. This is significant as we can walk into any OTC store and observe half the store selling hair in addition to styling products. Weave and extensions are big business. According to consumer reports, the ethnic weave industry brings in more than $15 billion dollars annually. Over 60 percent of women with ethnic hair types will purchase a product for weave throughout the year. This means big business to those of us with the right products and a feel for the needs of our customers. The key to a good weave product is hair health. Weave extensions and wig application processes can harm the hair if not performed correctly. Hair wefts must be sewn in and secured to the hair with heavy threads. Wigs can have harsh irritants and materials that can often cause breakage and damage. The same

glues that are produced to apply quick weaves contain chemicals that are used for industrial adhesives. This can mean that a decision to change your hair style can lead to major damage and currently we are selling to some of the most hair healthy conscious consumers in the history of this industry. The natural hair care sector has to be the most educated hair care consumers in the business. I mean they really do their research and make serious sacrifices to go completely natural, but more often than not they still want the freedom and versatility of all types of hair styles. The key to this is the ultimate in hair protection. The coiled hair strand is fragile to begin with and as so many have discovered with their experience in relaxers and chemicals, certain types of styling comes with a price. Products like Robert’s Diamond Bond Protective Shield provides just the right protection for the hair health conscious consumer. Robert’s Diamond Bond Protective Shield is a complete line of products specifically made to surround the hair with a nourishing barrier that promotes hair health as it provides protection from weave styling that is as strong as a diamond. Imagine if you will our new consumer which has spent the last year growing out her relaxer or maybe she has just grown out a wonderful natural mane after deciding to make the big chop to cut off all of her chemically treated hair. She has made a huge sacrifice to go natural and have the healthiest head of hair she can. Changes in society and the hair care industry have given natural hair care more versatility than ever before but providing protection for the options of weave care is taking it to another level. Robert’s Diamond Bond Protective Shield can be applied to natural hair and braided wrapped or laid flat. The glued on quick weave weft, wig cap or sewn on track comes in contact with the shield and not the hair. This product provides the ultimate protection for those that want to maximize their natural hair versatility and want to keep their natural hair healthy. As the hair care industry produces more products and influences new trends we must continue to meet the needs of our savvy consumers. If reports show that over 90 percent of OTC stores report weave products as more than 40 percent of their retail mix it is only natural that they provide hair healthy products to accompany those weave products. Stocking products like Robert’s Diamond Bond is not only great customer service but an added value to any store as an up sell on any weave application.

How the Permanent Curl is Formed In reference to cold waves for permanently curling the hair, my theories differ almost totally from what is re ected in textbooks.


OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

My theory is: you may be under the impression that the permanent curl is formed by reforming the bonds, however this is not true. The change of the bonds is a result of the curl being formed primarily on the cuticle and the bonds simply follow the direction of the curled cuticle and end up in a changed formation as they conform to the windings of the rods. The bonds are basically liquid and therefore, cannot be reformed to hold the hair in any permanent formation. The decreasing pH of the cold wave solutions is not strong enough to penetrate deep into the cortex to bring about a permanent change. The cuticle layer is made up of the same substance as the fi ngernail (Keratin Protein), only thinner and more fl exible; it has the same hard texture. The cuticle is the only area of the hair shaft that is solid and has enough substance to withstand a permanent change chemically. I do not mean to infer that other parts of the hair are not affected because these areas of hair are changed somewhat due to the hair being stretched as it is wound on the rod. However, the area of the hair that is chiefl y changed, allowing it to be permanently rearranged, is the cuticle layer. To better understand this concept, let’s look at it from another point of view. The cuticle layer is like a shell and like anything that is contained in a shell, will take on the shape of that shell. The inside of the hair shaft (Cortex, Medulla, Bonds, etc…), will follow the direction of the cuticle. When the hair is wrapped on the rods to form the curl, the cold wave solution is applied. The cuticle is softened by the solution and begins to hug the rod, taking on the shape of the rod it is wrapped on. Later, after the desired curl or wave is achieved, the hair is rinsed and the neutralizer-stabilizer is applied. This step re-hardens the cuticle to its original texture, in the altered state of the rod it is wrapped on. However, total stabilization does not take place right away. It takes about three days for the hair to become fully stabilized. This is why you tell your patron not to shampoo or go swimming for at least three days after a curl treatment (fi ve to seven days on Afro hair).

January 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine


Feature Sodium Hydroxide relaxers remove up to one-third of the cuticle layer and this is why a cold wave permanent will not take on previously relaxed hair. One of the tragic aspects of Black Cosmetology is that in most states if a student took a Black patron to perform a complete curl as part of his/ her testing at the State Board examination, one of two things would happen: (1) The student would do the curl as requested by the State examiner and end up with unsatisfactory end results. The student would pass the test because he/she would have followed established State Board procedure, even if that procedure was wrong for the hair being worked. (2) He/ she would do the curl as it should be done on naturally over-curly hair and end up with beautiful and lustrous results, but fail that aspect of the State Board examination. The reason for this is most State Boards and textbooks are only concerned with the permanent curl as it relates to straight hair. The truth of the matter is there are basically five major differences when doing the procedure on any curly or kinky hair. How is a permanent curl similar to a curling iron curl? The cuticle is of primary importance in the formation of the permanent curl. The curling iron softens the cuticle with thermal heat, allowing the cuticle to be bent in the shape of the curling iron, forming a temporary curl. The curl is locked in temporarily as the hair cools and may be lost to gravitational pull, or moisture from humidity, perspiration, rain, etc. The permanent curl is formed by softening the cuticle chemically with a solution designed for that purpose (Ammonium Thioglycolate). The cuticle is softened in the shape of the rod it is wrapped around; thereby forming the curl that is locked in by the application of a neutralizer What are the five basic differences in executing the curl on kinky hair, as opposed to straight? 1. The hair must be re-arranged (pre-softened with a cold wave crème or gel). 2. The strands are placed on-base instead of off-base as described in textbooks. 3. The hair is rodded with slight tension (pressure)

application. 4. The processing time can be from 20 to 30 minutes instead of 12 to 15 minutes. 5. The curl takes up to seven days to lock-in. The main difference is before you can permanently curl kinky hair; you must first remove 40 to 60 percent of the natural curl. This is done by combing a cold wave crème or gel through the hair in the same manner as relaxing crème for basically the same reason. Why you roll curly and wavy hair on base with slight tension instead of vice versa as taught in school. In beauty school you were taught to roll off-base with no tension. This procedure is correct for straight hair, but on curly and wavy hair you need this extra assist of tension on base to help eliminate the natural curl which is being replaced by the controlled curl; otherwise you may end up with a frizzy curl or no curl at all. This is true on all naturally curly or wavy hair regardless of the nationality of the patron. Unlike relaxers that can overprocess or over-straighten the hair if left in the hair too long or worked in too vigorously, a cold wave gel or crème will relax the hair no more than 60 percent. In order to give a successful curl on kinky hair, you must remove some of the natural kink so you can come back with a controlled curl on the rods. Why you cannot permanently curl relaxed hair. Relaxed hair is altered hair because relaxer removes one-third of every part of the hair composition. The curl is formed primarily on the cuticle, and with a portion of the cuticle removed by the relaxer, it could result in a weak curl or no curl at all.

Advanced Beauty Inc. Chris McClain President 64

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

As a beauty supply manufacturer it is essential to stay in-tune with current trends and the demands of consumers. Advanced Beauty Inc. understands this and, according to the company President Chris McClain, they strive to be nimble in the ever-changing landscape of the business. OTC Beauty Magazine spoke with McClain to learn more about the organization and how this enables them to cater to customers’ needs.

뷰티 서플라이 제조업체에게 있어서 현재의 트랜드와 소비자의 수요를 유지하는 것은 필수적이다. 회사 대표인Chris McClain에 따르면, Advanced Beauty Inc는 이를 잘 이해하며, 이들은 변화무쌍한 비즈니스 세계에서 민첩함을 유지하려 애쓰고 있다. OTC 뷰티 매거진은McClain 과의 대화를 통해서 이 회사의 조직 구조에 대해 좀 더 알아보고, 그들이 어떻게 고객의 요구를 수용하는지를 듣고자 한다

OTC Beauty Magazine (OTC): Briefly describe the history of Advanced Beauty Inc. How did this company get started and what is it founded on? Chris McClain (CM): Advanced Beauty Inc. was founded in 2003 and since has become one of the fastest growing health and beauty companies in the United States. The company’s innovative, high quality product lines appeal to women desiring beauty on a budget or an at-home escape. I wanted to establish an organization that could bring to market brands with the same performance and quality of high-end brands but at a great value. Over the years, we have established several strong consumer brands and delivered on this promise across various product categories.

OTC 뷰티 매거진(OTC): Advanced Beauty Inc의 역사에 대한 간략한 소개 부탁드립니다. 귀사는 어떻게 시작 되었으며 무엇을 기반으로 설립되었습니까? Chris McClain (CM): Advanced Beauty Inc는 2003년에 설립되었으며 그 후로 미국에서 가장 빠르게 성장한 헬스 & 뷰티 회사 중 하나가 되었습니다. 회사의 혁신적이고 고품질의 제품 라인은 적당한 예산으로 아름다움을 희망하는 여성들을 대상으로 합니다. 저는 고급 제품에 버금가는 성능과 품질을 갖췄지만 가격은 저렴한 마켓 브랜드를 가져다 줄 수 있는 조직을 구축하고 싶었습니다. 수년에 걸쳐, 저희는 여러개의 강력한 소비자 브랜드를 설립했으며, 다양한 제품 카테고리에 걸쳐 이 약속을 전달해왔습니다.

OTC: How is the company structured and what brands make up ABI? CM: The OTC channel is very familiar with our ethnic brand, Cantu®, America’s #1 conditioning brand. Cantu offers a collection of ultra-moisturizing products made with 100% Pure Shea Butter and other natural ingredients to moisturize, repair and protect the hair and skin. It is anchored by the #1 selling conditioner, Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream. Advanced Beauty is actually made up of various brands. The largest is bodycology®, America’s fastest-growing beauty brand. It is a full line of body care products that offers a bouquet of beautiful fragrances at half the price you’ll find at specialty bath stores. Additionally, the Dr. Teal’s® brand supports healthy living and overall well-being by offering high quality, benefit based therapeutic solutions at a value price compared to higher-end specialty brands. Finally, we have several other smaller brands, including a newly launched Pretty®, a collection of fun, high-value cosmetic bags.

OTC: 회사의 구조는 어떻게 되며, Advanced Beauty Inc는 어떤 브랜드로 구성되었나요? CM:OTC 채널은 저희 ethnic brand(특정 인종을 겨냥한 브랜드)인 Cantu® , 미국의 No.1 컨디셔닝 브랜드를 잘 알고 있습니다. Cantu는 헤어와 피부의 보호 및 보습과 개선을 위해 100% 순수한 쉬어 버터와 천연 성분으로 만들어진 초보습 제품의 컬렉션을 제공합니다. No. 1 판매 제품인 Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream이 그 주축이 됩니다. Advanced Beauty는 실제로 다양한 브랜드로 구성되어 있습니다. 제일 큰 브랜드는 미국에서 가장 빠르게 성장한 뷰티 브랜드인 bodycology® 인데, 여러분이 전문 목욕 제품 매장에서 찾을 수 있는 제품의 절반 가격으로 아름다운 꽃향기를 제공하는 바디 케어 전제품 라인입니다. 뿐만 아니라, Dr. Teal’s 브랜드가 생활 건강과 전반적인 웰빙 분야를 지원하고 있습니다. 고품질의 이 제품은 고급 전문 브랜드에 비해 가격 경쟁력을 가짐과 동시에 치료적인 효과도 기대할 수 있습니다. 마지막으로, 새롭게 출시한Pretty®는 유쾌하면서도 값어치 있는 화장품 가방 브랜드입니다. 이를 포함해 다수의 소규모 브랜드들도 갖고 있습니다.

OTC: What prompted the need for your product/line within the beauty industry? CM: The beauty industry is overflowing with two kinds of brands. The first are brands that have very strong-performing formulas or fragrances but also have a very high price tag. The second are very inexpensive brands that don’t quite deliver on the performance consumers need. We focus on offering strong-performance formulas and fragrances at a smart value. This is what Cantu was based on – delivering to the ethnic hair care consumer more of what she wants for less.

OTC : 뷰티업계에서 귀사의 제품 라인은 어떤 필요성을 가집니까? CM: 뷰티업계는 현재 크게 두 종류의 브랜드로 넘쳐납니다. 첫 째는 강력한 효과를 수행하는 포뮬러나 향수 브랜드로서 제품 가격 또한 고가입니다. 다른 하나는 아주 저렴한 브랜드들인데 소비자들의 요구를 수행하는데는 그다지 큰 역할을 하지 못합니다. 저희는 강력한 효과를 보이는 포뮬러와 방향 제품을 알뜰한 가격에 제공하는 것에 초점을 두고 있습니다. 이것이 바로 보다 저렴한 가격으로 여성들이 원하는 그 이상을 제공하는 ethnic hair care(특정 인종을 겨냥한

헤어 케어 제품)인 Cantu 브랜드의 기반이기도 합니다. OTC: Advanced Beauty를 다른 경쟁업체들로부터 돋보이게 하는 것은 무엇입니까? 타사와 차별화되는 귀사만의 특별한 점은 무엇인지? CM: 저희는 소비자의 요구에 집중합니다. 예를 들어, 보습이ethnic hair care(특정 인종을 겨냥한 헤어 케어 제품)를 찾는 소비자들의 최우선 요구 사항이라는 것을 저희는 알고 있습니다. 그들은 모발에 수분을 공급하고 유지하는 방법을 찾고 있으며, Cantu는 다른 어떤 브랜드보다 이러한 점을 잘 충족시킵니다. 초보습 성분과 함께, 저희 제품은 모발을 부드럽고 촉촉하게 유지하도록 설계되었습니다. OTC: 귀사 제품의 주요 고객층은 누구이며, 그들의 요구를 총족시키기 위해 귀사가 채택하고 있는 다음 단계는 무엇인지요? CM: 저희의 각 브랜드들은 각각 고유한 소비자 대상을 갖고 있습니다. 그러나, 모든 브랜드들은 한 가지 공통점을 갖고 있습니다. 이 브랜드들은 최상의 품질을 원하지만 가격 경쟁력이 뛰어난 제품을 찾는 여성들을 위한 것입니다. 저희 브랜드들은 고급 브랜드와 동급의 효능을 보이면서도, 소비자들이 자신의 단골 매장에서 저렴한 가격에 언제든지 찾을 수 있습니다. 저희Advanced Beauty는 항상 소비자 동향의 가장 선두를 유지하기 위해 부단히 노력합니다. 어떤 제품들이 많이 판매 되는지, 특히 고급 브랜드 중에서, 소매업체나 고객들로부터 시장 상황에 대한 정보를 수집하는데 많은 시간을 투자합니다. 저희가 제공할 수 있는 또 다른 great value(좋은 품질에 저렴한 가격의 제품)를 발굴하기 위해 항상 노력하고 있습니다. OTC: 귀사의 OTC 매장 파트너들과 저희 독자들이 귀사와 비즈니스 관계를 갖고 제품을 취급함으로써 얻을 수 있는 혜택에 대해 설명 부탁드립니다. CM: 지난 9년 동안, Cantu는ethnic hair care 제품 분야에서 확실한 승자임을 입증해보였습니다. 이 브랜드는 판매 달러를 올리고 반복되는 고객 구매를 얻고자하는 모든 OTC매장의 필수 아이템입니다. 저희 Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream이나 다른 베스트 셀링 아이템을 취급하지 않는 OTC 매장은 없습니다. OTC: 고객들과 소매업자들을 위해 어떤 제품 교육을 실시하고 계신지요? CM: 최근에 새로운 웹사이트(를 개설하고 제품과 모발 관리에 관한 교육을 시작했습니다. 거기에는 제품 정보가 포함된 제품 카탈로그와 스타일링 정보, 브랜드, 사용 설명 영상물등이 게시되어 있습니다. 새 블로그인 “Clip Notes”도 만들었는데요, 고객들에게 최상의 모발 관리 방법에 관한 일반적인 정보를 제공하기 위해서입니다. 보다 많은 고객들이 매장을 재방문할 수 있도록 새로운 매장 위치 찾기도 신설했습니다. 뿐만 아니라, 소비자들과 열린 대화를 유지하기 위해 다양한 소셜 네트워크 활동도 활발히 하고 있습니다.

OTC: What do you feel is the most important thing for multicultural beauty store owners to know when recommending your company’s products to their customers? Also, what marketing tips would you suggest for selling success? CM: The best suggestion we can make is to listen carefully to their customers. Often they will not know what they are looking for exactly. Any time a customer mentions needing or wanting moisture, whether for cleansing, conditioning or styling, they should point the customer to Cantu. Cantu can always deliver on that – and always at a great value. Marketing is useless if consumers can’t find the products. They should play close attention to their store layout and organization. Make it easy for shoppers to navigate the store and find their products. Organize the layout based on your specific customer – you know them better than anyone else. This can go a long way in your selling success. OTC: What does the future hold for Advanced Beauty, Inc? Do you have any big advancements, releases, etc. planned for the coming months that you can discuss? CM: The upcoming year will be a very big one for Advanced Beauty, and Cantu in particular. This year we hired a new team to drive the Cantu brand, each team member with varying backgrounds that include large consumer marketing and product development organizations. This new team is working on innovation that grows our conditioning strength in the market as well as a marketing plan to drive more brand awareness and trial. We are looking forward to partnering with the OTC channel for collaborative success in 2013. OTC: What is the best business advice you can give store owners, especially as they head into the New Year? CM: One of the most challenging aspects of owning your own business is trying to be everywhere all the time. It can be difficult to prioritize every opportunity, but it’s an important activity. Putting resources like time, money, even brain-power on those activities that are going to give you the most impact are crucial to long-term success. There is no time like the New Year to revisit the company’s biggest objectives and focus on the priorities.

OTC: 다문화를 겨냥한 뷰티 매장 운영자들이 고객들에게 귀사의 제품을 추천할 때 가장 중요한 것은 무엇이라고 생각하십니까? CM: 저희가 할 수 있는 최선의 제안은 고객의 소리에 최대한 귀 기울이라는 것입니다. 고객들은 종종 자신들이 찾는 것이 무엇인지 모를 때가 있습니다. 고객들이 보습이 필요하거나 원할 때, 혹은 클린징이나 컨디셔닝, 스타일링 제품을 원할 때는 언제든 고객들에게 Cantu를 권하십시오.

구색을 갖추는 것이 경쟁력을 갖는 것이다 InStyle • Jackson, MS. 사람은 어떠한 단체에 예속되기 시작하면서 ‘경쟁’ 이란 단어에 익숙해 진다. 학교에서는 동급생들과 학 업으로 경쟁을 하고, 사회생활을 시작하게 되면 그야 말로 총성 없는 전쟁이 시작되는 것이다. 직장에서는 진급을 놓고 동료들과 경쟁을 하며, 사업을 하는 사 람들은 동 업종과의 경쟁이 불가피한 것이 현실이다. 그렇다면, 경쟁에서 필승하는 해법이란 과연 있는 것 인가? 이것에 대한 어떤 해답이 있다면 모든 이들이 승자가 되겠지만, 불행히도 정답은 없는 것 같다. 하 지만, 나름대로의 방식으로 그 답을 찾고 꾸준히 실 천하는 사람들은 경쟁에서 우위를 차지하게 된다. 그 방식이 어떤 방식이건 간에 경쟁에서 앞서나가는 사 람들은 반드시 남들과는 차별화 된 그들만의 특별한 방법을 가지고 있는 사람들이다. 그 방법을 찾지 못 해 우왕좌왕 하는 사람들도 있고, 방법을 알고는 있 는데 실천을 하지 못하는 사람들도 있다. 그러다 보 면 경쟁에서 도태되기 마련이다. 자신의 강점을 파악


OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

하여 실천하는 사람들 만이 경쟁에서 승리하는 사람 이 되는 것이다. 이번에 OTC 뷰티 매거진에서 인터 뷰 한 Jackson, mississippi 에 위치한 instyle 의 이 태규 사장은 자신이 무엇을 잘 할 수 있는지를 알고, 꾸준히 실천해 나감으로 해서 본인만의 경쟁력을 갖 춰나가는 사람이다. 그의 강점이 무엇인지 인터뷰를 통해 알아 보도록 하자.

새로운 환경, 새로운 도전! 한국에서 18년 동안 은행에 근무를 했던 이사장은 98년, 가족들과 함께 도미하였다고 한다. 2년여간의 미국 적응 기간을 지나고 2000년 12월에 Clinton, Mississippi 에 위 치한 Hair Plus 라는 뷰티 서플라이 스토어를 인수 하였다 고 한다. “그 당시에는 뷰티 서플라이를 잘 알지 못하였는 데, 주변 분들의 도움으로 인해 스토어 운영을 시작하게 되었습니다” 라는 이사장은, 그 뒤로 12년만에 두 번째 스토어 오픈을 준비 중이었다. 오픈 준비로 분주한 스토 어를 들어가 보니, 높은 천장으로 인해 4,800 sq ft 의 공 간이 그 보다 훨씬 넓어 보였다. “새로운 스토어를 준비하 기 위해 잡지도 많이 섭렵하였고, 타 지역의 뷰티 서플라 이 스토어들도 많이 방문을 해 보았습니다” 라는 이사장 은, 한눈에 봐도 실내 장식에 많은 공을 들인 ‘티’가 나 보 였다. 깔끔하게 마루로 된 바닥에 고급스런 유리 선반 등, 쇼핑환경을 쾌적하게 만들기 위한 노력의 흔적이 곳곳에 서 묻어 났다. 지난 12년 동안 운영해온 스토어가 조금 오 래된 건물이라 아쉬웠던 점들을 새로운 스토어에서 맘껏 표현하는 듯한 느낌이 들었다. 그리고, 새로 오픈을 하는 스토어는 백인들이 더 많은 지역이라 이전의 스토어와는 손님 층도 사뭇 다를 것이라 한다. 이사장은 이러한 지역 을 선택한 이유로 “백인들을 겨냥한 시장도 개척을 해보 고 싶었습니다. 많은 시행착오를 겪어야겠지만, 그 방법 을 찾아보고 싶습니다. 물론, 뷰티 서플라이 스토어라는 특성상 주요 고객은 흑인들이 될 것입니다” 라고 한다.

일과의 사랑 이사장과 인터뷰를 하는 내내, 성실과 부지런함이란 단어 가 머릿속에서 떠나질 않았다. “모든 업종에 관계없이, 오 너가 열심히 하지 않으면 성공을 이뤄내기 힘듭니다” 라고 운을 뗀 이사장은 스토어에 있는 동안만큼은 모든 시간을 스토어에 집중한다고 한다. “10시간을 스토어에 있으면 9 시간 반을 일에 집중한다고 보면 됩니다” 라는 이사장은, 하루에도 몇 번씩 선반 위 제품들의 줄을 맞출 정도로 스토 어 안에서 분주하다고 한다. 또한, 매일매일 저녁마다 선반 January 2013 OTC Beauty Magazine

에서 빠진 제품들을 체크하고 채워 넣는다고 한다. 이사장의 꼼꼼한 성격이 한몫 하기는 했겠지만, 이는 여간 해서는 실천 하기 힘든 일이 아닐 수 없다. “제품을 잘 정리해 놓으면 도둑 방지의 효과도 있습니다” 라는 이사장은 아무래도 정리가 잘 되어 있으면 좀 도둑들이 쉽사리 물건에 손을 대기가 힘들 것 이라 한다. 성공을 하려면 일과 사랑에 빠지라는 말이 있다. 이는 그만큼 일에 신경을 쓰고 시간을 투자하라는 말로 해석 될 수 있다. 이를 볼 때, 이사장은 이 말의 표본이 아닐까라는 생각이 든다. 대신 스토어 밖에 있을 때는 스토어에 대한 생각 을 접는다고 하며, “그렇게 하지 않으면 제가 견딜 수가 없습 니다” 라고 한다. 이러한 완급 조절이 있기 때문에 일과 사랑 (?)에 빠질 수 있는 것이라 생각된다.

특화된 경쟁력으로 가격고수 이사장의 가장 강력한 경영철학 중 하나는 바로 가격을 고수 하는 것이다. 이미 수년째 전국적으로 문제가 되고 있는 것 이 동 업종간의 가격 낮추기 경쟁인데, 이사장은 이것만큼은 아주 확고한 생각을 가지고 있었다. 이사장은 “적절한 마진 폭을 지켜야 한다고 생각합니다. 물론, 가격이 비싸다고 투 덜거리는 고객들이 더러 있기도 하지만, 스스로 가격을 낮추 는 것은 장기적인 비즈니스를 하는 방법이 아닌 것입니다” 라고 당당하고 자신 있게 말한다. 실제로 이사장의 스토어는 세일도 거의 하지 않는 것으로 유명하다고 한다. 어떻게 하 면 이렇게 당당할 수 있을까? 그 해답은 이사장의 다음 대답 에서 찾아볼 수가 있었다. “가격 경쟁은 하지 않을 것입니다. 그대신 구색을 갖추는 것을 게을리하지 않을 것입니다. 그 러기 위해선 발 품을 파는 수 밖에 없습니다”. 이사장은, 현 재 취급하는 제품들은 절대로 떨어트리지 않기 위해 도매상 72

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2013

이 많이 있는 애틀랜타를 방문할 시, 여러 도매상을 돌아 다녀서라도 반드시 부 족한 제품들을 구입하여 선반을 채워 넣는다고 한다. 새로운 제품을 시작할 땐 약간 보수적이지만, 오히려 단종된 제품들도 고객이 찾는 경우가 있으면 구비를 해 놓는다고 한다. “고객들이 저희 스토어에 대해서는 제품이 떨어지지 않는 스 토어로 인식을 하고 있습니다. 이러한 요소가 높은 마진을 유지할 수 있게 만들 어주는 저희 스토어 만의 경쟁력이라 생각합니다” 라는 이사장은 어렵게 스토어 를 방문한 고객들에게 진정한 원스탑 쇼핑 환경을 만들어 주고 싶다고 한다. 앞 서 말했듯이, 이는 이사장의 성실함에서 파생된 강력한 경쟁력이라 생각된다. 요즘같이 소비자들의 주머니사정이 좋지 않을 때, 높은 가격은 스토어 운영에 치명적일 수도 있다. 하지만 그가 당당할 수 있는 것은 그만의 특별한 경쟁력을 갖춰놨기 때문일 것이다. 이사장은, 업계에 특별히 부탁할 말이 있냐는 질문에, “도매상이나 제조사들이 현실적인 스토어 환경을 파악하고 신경을 써서, 좀더 실질적으로 개선해줄 수 있는 방법을 강구해 주었으면 좋겠습니다. 예를 들어 제품 테스터 (tester)나 샘 플을 제작하여, 고객들이 본 제품을 손상시키는 일을 줄여 줬으면 좋겠습니다” 라며 제조사나 도매상들에게 구체적인 요구사항을 밝히기도 하였다. 또한, 뷰티 서플라이 오너들에게는 “가격을 낮추어 경쟁을 하려고 하지 말고, 본인의 강점 을 살려서 경쟁력을 키웠으면 좋겠습니다. 가격을 낮추게 되면 결국 그 결과가 본인한테 돌아오게 마련입니다” 라는 당부의 말로 인터뷰를 마무리 하였다

Get Attached to Attachments Recently the Andis company has released a versatile trimmer called the Superliner. The Superliner has a rotary motor that allows this trimmer to cut through the thickest of hair effortlessly while featuring a detachable blade system. The versatility is obtained by the different attachments designed to fit the trimmer. Each attachment is designed for a totally different use. The first attachment is the In-Liner blade, a thin four tooth trimmer blade set designed as an attachment designed for the Superliner. It fulfills the purpose of being an aid to barber artist who want to clip hair in small sections to create details with ease. The second attachment is the Shaver Attachment, which when coupled with the Superliner is a powerful shaver that offers consistent power unlike its battery powered counterparts. A great selling point for your cosmetology customers that serve men who do shave is that they can give a great shave legally with the shaver attachment. I say this because in most states cosmetologist are not allowed to use razors to shave, so the shaver attachment is a great alternative. The third attachment should be an additional trimmer blade. Preparing your customers for accidents by suggesting they purchase replacement blades at the time they purchase the trimmer. Due to the fact that every barber is different and so are their clients, tools with attachments have become more attractive. Having attachments that can help your customers service all of their clients due to the wide range of uses the Superliner trimmer has with a each attachment is a plus. While saving space on their stations is one benefit, not experiencing heat buildup from the body of a trimmer also reduces the desire for barbers to switch trimmers in the middle of one haircut. In closing I would say if you want to get attached to increased sales, get attached to attachments!

THERAPY TRENDS Trickle Down Therapies! Last year Keratin and the appliances that ignite the therapy were hot! Many manufacturers and stylists were unsure of the viability of the category: the treatment was time consuming and laborious. It was expensive. Results were “iffy.” Ideal targeting was confusing. Just in time for the New Year, ethnic manufacturers have discovered the relevance of the therapy. Your customers with chemical processes will be invited to join the frenzy. Products are already available to economically slick down the frizzies for weeks at a time. As you stock up for 2013, pay attention to those salon trends that should be translated into at-home use. Pay attention to mis-targeted products and brands. Pay attention to therapies and technologies that will trickle down to the OTC. Your consumers will rely on ancient brands with a new story to tell. For instance, an age-old fade cream brand being relaunched to a new generation as a moisturizing skin care regimen. Stretch mark treatment and whiter, healthier teeth are new glamour categories. Consumers are seeking solutions for the most mundane barriers to beauty. And they are seeking these therapies at a mass outlet price point! Be also aware that specialty stores are getting into the solutions game with the same mass therapies marked up to high priced luxury. OTC’s should observe that the new consumer therapies will trickle down from the hierarchy of innovation. It takes so little time to spark innovation and watch it ignite in all outlets and multiple price points.

Elayne McClaine has identified and developed emerging domestic and global trends in hair care, skin care and other consumer categories for such firms as Chesebrough-Pond’s, Revlon and Pharmacia (div. of Pfizer). Her expertise in therapeutic treatments for hair, skin and scalp led to the creation of the Women’s Institute for Fine and Thinning Hair, sponsored by Rogaine. McClaine has been acknowledged by the American Academy of Dermatologists for marketing and promotional excellence.

A New Direction

Welcome to 2013 and welcome to my new and improved segment focused on the franchises, barbershops, and beauty and barber schools connected to the hair care industry.Together we will explore the business of the hair care industry and the people, products and services provided to these establishments.You may notice a title change for my 2013 segment from “Against the Grain” to “Tonsorial Times” which is the title of my new official barbershop trade publication. Over the past few months, I have addressed questions about the meaning of the title created for the new publication and the overall impact the publication will have on the industry. For those of you who are not familiar with the term “Tonsorial,” here is the official meaning.“Tonsorial” ton•so•ri•al.Adjective: of or relating to barbering or a barber and the services they provide.The barbering industry has come a long way while increasing the value, services and products we provide to customers since I personally became active in the industry in 2001.This segment is evidence of the resurgence of the interest in the tonsorial practice.There are hundreds if not thousands of students graduating from schools all over the country and hundreds of new franchises, salons and barbershops opening their doors for clients who will need their expertise, yet we lack the information and channels of communication to address the knowledge gaps which exist in the industry. Barbers and stylist are learning skills which are nontraditional to their specific disciplines. For example: Barbers are offering eyebrow and lash work while stylist are now providing shape ups and razor services.This has created a need to reevaluate your sales and marketing tactics and increasing your brand exposure. I am excited about the future content which will be shared through this segment and I hope your supply company establishes a clear plan to gather a greater insight into the organizations, customer base and companies you will be providing products and services to over the next year.

am honored that you have taken your time to come to the grand opening of our Jinny Beauty International sales office!!! Of all the locations that we have opened thus far, I am most excited about this particular location and the city. I think we have planted a very good seed which will grow into something very special in the years to come!!! As we have accomplished in Miami since 2004 until now and still we have our remaining competition in business is a true testimony how Jinny grew the whole Caribbean international business. Building an international business, like all business, takes time but most importantly they have to trust you and this is what we plan to do for all 53 countries in Africa, parts of the Middle Eastern countries and European countries as well. With your support and guidance, I know for a fact, together we can make this much bigger than what it was in 2012. The ball is in your court always, Jinny is a distributor who opens new warehouses in places where we feel that the brands in our warehouses need to somehow get to the ultimate deserving consumers. We have done exactly this in places like Oakland, California. Jinny will not quit and we are running out of time in America. Before our economy gets better and stronger, we need to open more places to avoid higher building prices and the overhead costs, and to be firmly ready when our country rebounds stronger than ever before!!!! But at the end of the day, we are just a good logistical warehouse, shipping products from point A to point B. The day that we can sit down together and really consider each other as our own true partners…this is what we need to strive for in the future and this would be a good dream to have. I am a firm believer that a dream written down with a date becomes a goal, a goal broken down into steps becomes a plan, and a plan backed by action makes your dreams come true!!! I thank you once again and hope to sit down with you one-on-one soon to discuss our plans in detail!!! Eddie Jhin Top Manager in Charge 84

is very prevalent in cosmetics and high-end facial and skin products. By using our vast experience, we can incorporate this important scientific advance into our one-of-a-kind products. Nano Technology reduces vitamin molecules to nano or microscopic size. This enhances the body’s ability to absorb the nutrients by passing the molecules through the blood stream and directly into the hair and scalp. The result is that you will receive the maximum benefit of the vitamins along with deeper penetration and faster absorption to the roots, scalp and hair.

Gold ‘N Hot Introduces New Sub-Brand,Titanium Gold ‘N Hot이 새로운 하위 브랜드 (기존의 브랜드와 연관된 새로운 브랜드) 인 Titanium을 선보인다.

As savvy beauty consumers continued to spend 똑똑한 뷰티 소비자들은 경제적으로 힘든

money on products in spite of difficult economic times, brands that offered the latest technology at competitive price points flourished. For the last 30 years, Gold ‘N Hot has recognized the importance of providing its loyal following with affordable styling innovations and is introducing Titanium, a new sub-brand featuring the latest in titanium technology with retail prices under $50. The line features a Dryer, Curling Iron and Straightening Iron. White with silver and gray accents, it is a true departure from the Gold ‘N Hot signature look. Packaging is bold with hot pink, orange and white designs on the black window boxes. Those features combine for a broader appeal in the marketplace. “The idea behind Titanium is to attract the woman who wants the technology in the tools her hairdresser uses but without the high prices her hairdresser pays for them,” explained Derek J, celebrity hairdresser and Gold ‘N Hot educator. “This line appeals to all women, not just African American women, with its bright color and updated packaging.” Like all Gold ‘N Hot products, Titanium comes with a one-year limited warranty. Since its inception almost 30 years ago, Gold ‘N Hot instantly became and remains the No. 1 selling brand in the professional ethnic beauty marketplace. For more information, please call 888-738-1212 or visit
