Business Tips


Discover the ‘Secret Sauce’ for Customer Retention

By Denise Ciardello Every business has a culture, and the culture defines whether the business is customer, time or technology-focused, and sets the tone for customer interaction with negativity or an attitude of joy. The significance of creating greater customer satisfaction begins with a total team approach. There are three ingredients that form the ‘secret sauce’ that creates an environment that generates raving fans, in turn developing an organic marketing strategy that brings in friends and family of your satisfied customers.

A PRIMAL Approach to Creating the Professional Life You Desire!

By Curt Redden Are you completely satisfied with your career or work? Whether you are just starting your career, or are more seasoned in your position, it can sometimes become a challenge to stay motivated, engaged and happy all the time. It is likely you devote a tremendous amount of time in your chosen field, how can you enjoy it more and make it truly extraordinary? You can improve in this area by clarifying and focusing on your primal needs.

By Nathan Jamail Entitlement is one of the most harmful traits a leader can instill in an employee. Like with parenting, giving children a sense of entitlement is doing a disservice to the child. The child does not learn how to problem solve, cope with everyday disappointments, and rise to a challenge. Entitlement doesn’t build the child’s courage and strength. Ultimately, parents harm the child in a way that negatively affects their future. The same is true for leaders and their staff. 권리의 위험성

Resolutions for


The New Year is officially upon us, and what better time than now to make resolutions for your personal and professional improvement? Last month, we talked about learning from the lessons of 2017 and setting new goals for 2018. This month, it’s all about planning the baby steps to make your aspirations possible.

성공을 위한 결심 새해가 우리에게 다가왔습니다. 개인적이고 전문적인 개선을 위한 결심을 새움에 있어 지금보다 더 나은 시기가 있을까요? 지난 달에, 우리는 2017년의 교훈을 배우고 2018년에 새로운 목표를 세우는 것에

Your first steps may start with examining your current team. In order for any business to be successful, each employee must be on the same page. Kicking your team into action can be challenging, but the key is to encourage everyone to work hard and put their best foot forward, from your newest hire to your seasoned staffers. We offer some worthwhile suggestions on how to accomplish this task in this month’s Business Tips, starting on page 44. From reigniting your professional passion to addressing entitlement in the workplace, each article will be helpful to your efforts. If your store ran like a well-oiled machine last year, then resolve to fine tune what already works. To get some new ideas to accomplish that, check out Start the New Year Off Right – Attract More Customers and Increase Sales in 2018 on page 34. Industry veteran Ted Fishman shares some valuable insights you won’t want to miss. And you won’t be the only one changing things up for the better. Some of your top selling brands may redesign their product packaging this year. When this happens, you’ll have to find some creative ways to sell the old-packaged inventory. Merchandise Manager Makeba Matthews of Strength of Nature offers some timely advice on how to make the most of this common issue in the How Should You Sell it Column on page 22.

Products to Pamper You By With the holidays behind us and several more months of freezing temperatures ahead, now is the perfect time to take care of the hair and skin we’re in. But you don’t have to visit a spa to be spoiled. With the right products, your shoppers can take some muchneeded “me” time at home. Be sure they’re equipped to do just that with these must-have products.

Hair Detox

When your customers’ hair just won’t behave, it may be in need of a detox. Suggest the OKAY® Detoxifying

and Purifying Charcoal Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Conditioner.

These products are formulated to pull out oil, dirt and toxins from your hair, leaving a clean, healthy and shiny appearance.

Nourishing Oil

When hair is extra parched from the harsh, cold elements, it deserves to be treated with care. Pamper your tresses with a luxurious oil like the Crème of

Nature with Coconut Milk Essential 7 Treatment Oil. This oil is ideal for natural hair and not only helps with

shine but it also protects curls from breakage.

Hair Growth Balm

Nothing is more satisfying than taking time out to take care of yourself. A little self-care can go a long way, especially when it comes to hair growth. Take a little time to use T-Tree by Parnevu Herbal Grow to stimulate healthy hair growth. Not only will this help with extending hair lengths, but it also helps eliminate flaky, dry and itchy scalp.


OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018

Hair and Body Whip

Keeping hair and skin moisturized during the winter months is a must, but it’s a step that many may skip when in a rush. Finding a 2-in-1 product that can moisturize the tresses and skin is a great way to ensure that your body is soft and supple from head to toe. Suggest a products like Inahsi Naturals Hair & Body Whipped Butter that is rich in Aloe Vera Juice and Shea Butter can help restore shine and lock in moisture.

Bonnet Dryer

When it’s time to deep condition your hair, give your customers a spa-like experience with the Gold ‘n Hot Dryer Soft Bonnet. This hair dryer features an ION generator that helps the hair dry faster without the harsh heat damage. With four heat settings to choose from, this dryer can also accommodate any heat preference and dry your hair in no time – no salon necessary.

Pore Strips

Whether it’s from the makeup we wear or the natural oils on our skin, pores can be clogged from a variety of factors. That’s why it helps to periodically cleanse the skin and remove any impurities. Products like Daggett & Ramsdell Pore Refining Nose Strips has a charcoal formula that can penetrate deep down to unclog pores and draw out excess dirt.

Products to Pamper You By

Hand Cream

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is to apply a moisturizing lotion to your hands. The right product can be soothing and leave skin feeling soft and supple. When customers come to your store in search of the perfect lotion, suggest Difeel Hand Cream. This restorative hand cream has a blend of Vitamin E, natural oil, botanical extracts and certified organic Shea Butter.

Skin Milk

Your skin deserves the necessary nourishment to leave it youthful, bright and even. Clear Essence Skin Beautifying Milk is a lotion that can do just that by eliminating dry and dull spots. This product is great for all skin types and prevents the dark spots, dryness and blemishes that affect the skin’s ability to look fresh and even. In addition, it works well to pamper your elbows, knees, knuckles and feet.

Face Mask

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Face Enzyme Mask. This cooling clay mask has a blend of cocoa

How should you sell it? By Makeba Matthews

This month’s selling focus is…

Old-Packaged Merchandise A common problem in beauty supply stores isn’t always managing employees or attracting customers. Often times, it can be the products themselves. Moving product off the store shelves is a feat in itself,

but when manufacturers change the design of their product packaging, it could be viewed as a cause

for concern or a new sales opportunity. New packaging can be an exciting way to draw in new fans of the product line, but when old-packaging is still in stock at the store, some retailers may struggle to move the old-packaging to make room for the new improved design.

It begs the question, how do you sell . . . Old-Packaged Merchandise?

“When keeping both old and new packaging on the shelf at the same time, nine times out of 10, old packaging is not going to sell as fast as the new packaged product. Especially consider, new packaging is usually supported with new advertising and promotions for the new

packaging claims. In most cases, the result of new packaging claims are going to attract new consumers who will come into your store and

try this new improved product. It’s understandable if you don’t want to put the old packaging on sale and sell it out, but if no action is taken

old packaging is going to sit on the shelf otherwise. You might as well put the old packaging on a discount and highly visible, because a lot of times loyal customers are going to pick up the older packaging first.

Think of Walgreens, Walmart, Kroger - think about how they pull customers in with new products. They try to pull them in with something new and exciting to offer. Give the shopper something to excite them. Do deals and discounts in a special area. It most likely will excite your customer, because if you knock something down by $1 and you can get their shopping cart to be $30 (worth of product) - you don’t lose that much.

That’s the kind of things we’d like to see happen at the beauty supply store, especially when it comes to moving out older packaging to make room for new packaging. There’s a great opportunity to satisfy loyal and new consumers and at the same time, create excitement resulting in a larger shopping cart.”

어떻게 판매해야 하나? By Makeba Matthews

어떻게 판매해야 하나...

오래된 포장지의 제품들 뷰티 서플라이 스토어들의 문제는 직원들을 경영하거나 고객들을 유치하는 것이 아니다. 문제는 주로 물품에서 발생된다. 상점 선반에서 물품을 넣고 빼는 것 만해도 일인데 제조사가 물품 포장의 디자인을 바꾸기라도 하면 문제가 된다. 하지만 이는 세일즈 기회이기도 하다. 새로운 포장지는 제조사의 새로운 팬들을 만드는 방법이기도 하지만 낡은 포장지가 남아있으면 새로운 물품을 위해 낡은 물품을 팔기 힘들어 하는 소매업자들도 있을 것이다.

그러면 포장지의 제품들은 어떻게 팔아야 하는가? “오래된 포장지와 새로운 포장지를 선반에 동시에 두었을 때 열에 아홉은 낡은 포장지의 물품이 새로운 포장지보다 늦게 팔리게 된다. 특히나 새로운 광고를 포함한 포장지나 홍보를 하는 포장지는 더욱 그렇다. 대부분의 경우 새로운 포장지를 사용하면 새로운 고객을 스토어로 이끌 수 있다. 낡은 포장지의 물품의 가격을 낮추고 싶지 않는 것은 이해가 가지만 빨리 방법을 생각해내지 않으면 선반에 계속 자리만 차지 하고 있을 것이다. 그럴 바에는 할인을 조금이라도 해서 잘 보이는 곳에 놓아 판매하는게 낫다. 더군다나 자주 오는 단골 고객들은 그런 물품을 먼저 산다. Walgreens, Walmart, 그리고 Kroger, 이 들이 어떻게 고객들을 새로운 물품에 관심 갖게 하는가? 이러한 대기업들은 무언가 새롭고 신나는 제안을 한다. 고객들에게 무언가 새로운 것을 전달해라. 특별 구역에 할인을 해라. 그러면 고객들이 좋아할 것이다. 1 달러 깎아서 그 들의 쇼핑 카트에 30 달러를 추가할 수 있다면 잃을 게 무엇인가? 뷰티 서플라이 스토어에는 이러한 것들이 필요하다, 특히 새로운 포장지를 갖춘 상품을 위해 낡은 포장지 상품을 치워야 할 대책을 마련해야 할 때는 더욱 그렇다. 새롭고 신나는 결과를 만드는 동시에 충실하고 새로운 고객들을 만족시킬 기회는 충분하다.”

Coconut Oil The diverse use of coconut oil seems to be a new trend, but actually, it’s been around for thousands of years. People in India, Asia, the Philippines, the Pacific Islands, and other tropical locales have always used coconut oil, for cooking, health and beauty, or around the house. No wonder the coconut tree is often called “the tree of life.” Coconut oil is made by first extracting the kernel or the white part inside the shell of a mature coconut. The kernel is then milled, coldpressed, and filtered to create a raw, or virgin, coconut oil. Coconut oil was popular in the U.S. long before 2017, too. In the 1950s, it was truly the cooking oil of choice, much like vegetable or olive oil is today. However, the imported tropical oil, which is high in saturated fats, faced criticism when new research revealed in the 1980s that saturated fats result in high triglyceride levels and can lead to heart disease. Domestic soybean oil and other vegetable oils became the new norm. Now, at a time when many people are more conscious of what they’re putting in (or on) their bodies, many are turning back to virgin coconut oil over popular hydrogenated oils. Science has shown that while coconut oil is high in saturated fat, it’s composed of mediumchain fatty acids, which are much easier for the body to digest and convert to energy. It’s likely that coconut oil does not contribute to poor cholesterol or heart problems after all.

The many benefits of coconut oil Coconut oil boasts a myriad of benefits, from diet to hair, skin, and overall health. As you can see from its history, it is primarily added to food as a way to improve digestion, manage cholesterol, increase energy, and boost 26

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018

nutrients. But, it didn’t take long to realize that this super food is just as good for you on the outside as it is on the inside.

For your hair Hair oil treatments are widely popular. Adding coconut oil to the mix gives you another option to try out if your hair doesn’t respond to other products, like Argan oil or jojoba oil. When it comes to your hair, coconut oil makes a great deep conditioner because of its fatty acids. You can use it to mend split ends, stimulate growth, care for your scalp, and prevent hair loss. It can even be used to treat and prevent irritations like dandruff and lice. Try using it periodically as a leave in treatment on freshly washed hair. Apply melted coconut oil to your hair. Wrap your hair in a towel for at least 30 minutes, but one to two hours is best. Shampoo again to remove all of the oil. You can even incorporate coconut oil into your daily routine. Virgin coconut oil won’t leave behind residue and it’s perfectly safe for regular use. Detangle your tresses by adding melted oil to your ends and gently massaging up to your roots. Just comb through the tangles, let the coconut oil absorb, and style as usual. Your hair will be nurtured all day long.

For your skin Is it too soon to call coconut oil the miracle skin care treatment? It moisturizes like no other product on the market, and it also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, protecting you from many skin conditions. Plus, coconut oil is a great cleanser, erasing impurities left by makeup and everyday dirt and grime. To use coconut oil as a moisturizer, put a dollop in the palm of your hand and gently massage it onto freshly cleaned skin. Allow the oil to

absorb for about 10 minutes and then wipe away the excess with a towel. If you want to use coconut oil to clean your skin, start by applying it with a cotton pad all over your face, except around your eyes. Let it sit for five minutes before washing it off. To remove eye makeup, dip cotton balls in coconut oil, close your eyes, and lightly dap the cotton balls for a few seconds. You’ll be able to wipe off waterproof mascara, eye shadow, and eyeliner more easily.

For your body The benefits of coconut oil don’t stop at your hair and skin. Many parts of the body can benefit in some way from this tropical oil. Rub coconut oil on your nail beds to act as cuticle oil and also protect against infection, especially during visits to nail salons. That goes for your toes, too. Coconut oil can prevent cracked heels and make for a relaxing addition to a foot massage. You can also use it to moisturize cracked or chapped lips in all seasons, but especially the summer. Coconut oil naturally protects your skin from mild sun exposure and relieves sunburn symptoms on those days you spend a little too long outside.

Choosing the right coconut oil As you can see, coconut oil can be used for nearly anything. But before you purchase a bottle for yourself, make sure you’re buying the right kind of coconut oil. Store shelves are packed with so many varieties, it’s hard to pick if you don’t know what you’re looking for. First, pick a solid. Some stores sell coconut oil as a liquid, but those are more refined and processed and are lacking some of the important nutrients. Also, read the labels and watch for keywords. You want to buy coconut oil that says unrefined, cold-pressed, or extra virgin. Purchase it as close to its natural state as possible. Follow these tips and you should start seeing the benefits of coconut oil in no time.

Knowledge to Know By Ted Fishman

Start the New Year Off Right Attract More Customers and Increase Sales in OTC Stores in 2018 새해, 올바르게 시작하기 2018년, 고객들을 더 끌어 모으고 스토어의 세일을 증가 시키자 With 2017 behind us, we look forward to new opportunities in 2018 to improve, expand, and increase business. If your 2017 business was good then you have the opportunity to do even better in 2018. The New Year offers a fresh start to put some programs in place that will help improve business.

2017년을 보내고, 우리는 더욱 비즈니스가 발전하고 성장할 새로운 기회의 2018년을 맞이한다. 만약 당신의 2017년이 성공적이었으면 2018년에는 더 성공적으로 발전할 기회를 가질 수 있다. 새해는 비즈니스를 향상시킬 새로운 프로젝트를 추진할 기회를 제공한다.

For starters, there are some key things that every OTC store should have in place:

일단 모든 OTC 스토어가 갖춰야 할 주 요소들이 있다:

• • • •

A convenient and friendly environment. The widest selection of specialized beauty care products Attractive pricing Knowledgeable store personnel to help customers shop

In order to be competitive, stock and feature products not carried in retail stores, or if they are carried in retail stores stock the larger sizes of these items. Visit your local retail stores and check out the Ethnic/Multicultural sections to see what products are carried and which are not. Since most retail stores are planogrammed they have much less shelf space than OTC stores. Be sure to have enough stock on your shelves and give your customers the best possible prices so they will come back to your store when they need more products. Try to hire local knowledgeable store personnel who use many of the products you stock. Customers will feel comfortable asking them for information on how to use these products, how they work, which are best for their problems, etc. Set up your store with signage and make it easy for your customer to find what they are looking for. Use End Caps, Tables, Displays to attract customers to new items, closeouts, bonus and combo sizes, etc.

Decorating Opportunities

Decorate your stores for all holidays in 2018 – New Years, Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, Easter, Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Visit a Party Store to get some ideas on how to decorate your store for each of these holidays. You should also use your window space for signage with various posters, pictures, etc. and change them throughout the year.

Styling Trends

Be sure to keep up-to-date with current hair styling trends and products used for styling and maintaining them. Have these products on hand in your stores and use signage to let your customers know you stock them.

Make Your Customer Feel Welcome

Let your customers know that they are very welcome and that you appreciate their business. Be sure that the atmosphere of your store carries this message to every customer that walks in. This welcoming atmosphere can be accomplished by:

• •


Placing signage throughout the store that says ‘Welcome! We are happy you are here!” Asking the shoppers if they need help with anything. And tell them that if they can’t find what they’re looking for, ask store personnel if that item can be ordered. OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018

편하고 친근한 환경 다양한 옵션의 특별 뷰티 케어 제품 고객을 이끄는 가격 고객들이 쇼핑할 수 있게 도와 줄 수 있는 지식 수준이 높은 직원

경쟁하기 위해서는, 다른 소매상점에 없는 제품들을 채워 넣고 전면에 내세우며, 만약 다른 소매상점에서 취급하는 제품들이면 보다 큰 용량의 제품으로 채워 놔라. 지역의 소매상점을 방문해서 다문화 섹션에 무슨 제품들이 있고 무슨 제품들이 없는지 확인해라. 대체로 소매상점들은 상품을 보이기위한 진열만 하기때문에 OTC 상점들 보다 훨씬 선반공간이 적다. 제품들이 선반에 충분히 있게 하고 제품이 더 필요하면 다시 돌아올 수 있게 고객들에게 최고의 가격을 제공해라. 이미 상점에 있는 제품들을 사용하고 있는 직원들을 고용해라. 그러면 고객들은 제품을 어떻게 사용하는지, 어떻게 작동하는지, 그리고 그 들에 문제를 어떻게 해결하는지 그 들에게 정보를 편히 물어볼 수 있을 것이다. 상점에 사인 체계를 유지하고 고객들이 제품을 쉽게 찾을 수 있게 도와주자. 또한, 양쪽 끝 진열대, 책상, 그리고 전시로 고객들에게 새로운 아이템, 마감 아이템, 보너스 그리고 콤보 사이즈 등을 알리자.

스토어를 꾸며보자 2018년의 모든 공휴일을 (새해, 발렌타인 데이, 추수감사절, 크리스마스, 할로윈 등등) 위해 상점을 장식해라. 파티 상점에 가서 상점을 어떻게 장식 할 건지 생각해두자. 일년 내내 스토어의 창문에 다양한 포스터와 사진을 붙이고, 시기에 따라 포스터들을 바꿔주도록 해라.

트렌드 스타일하기 트렌드 헤어스타일과 그 것을 유지하는 제품에 대한 지식을 알아 둬라. 이 제품들을 스토어에 놓고 전시해 고객들에게 그 제품들이 있다는 것을 알려야 한다.

고객들을 환영해주자 고객들에게 그 들이 와서 기쁘고 거래를 해줘서 감사하다는 것을 알려주자. 상점의 분위기는 모든 고객에게 중대한 메시지를 준다는 것을 잊지 말자. 이러한 분위기는 아래와 같이 만들 수 있다.

• •

상점에 ‘환영합니다! 고객님이 오셔서 저희는 정말 기쁩니다!’ 같은 싸인판 걸어 놓기 고객들에게 도움이 필요한지 물어보고 무엇을 찾는지 모르겠다면 상점 직원에게 그 제품을 주문하라고 요청하기

Community Projects

Let your store community know that you care about them. Sponsor a local sports event for kids like baseball or basketball, support local charity events, contribute to food banks to help feed families during the holidays or donate to local churches. Be sure that your business name, address, and phone number is on all sponsorships and donations.

커뮤니티 프로젝트 상점 지역 커뮤니티에 우리가 고객들을 케어한다는 사실을 알려라. 야구나 농구 같은 지역의 스포츠 이벤트를 후원하고 현재 자선 단체 이벤트를 지지하고, 공휴일에 가족들이 먹을 수 있게 교회 같은 곳에 음식을 기부해라. 비즈니스 이름, 주소, 그리고 전화번호를 후원하고 기부하는 단체에 알리는 것은 필수이다.

Get a book for customers to sign with their names and addresses so that you can mail them sale flyers or even get their birthday dates and send them cards with small discounts or a free item for their birthday. Once they come into the store they are sure to buy other products.

그 들에게 광고 전단을 보내고 생일 때 생일 카드와 생일 할인 아이템을 보낼 수 있게 그 들의 이름과 주소를 싸인 할 수 있는 책을 가져가라. 그 들이 상점에 들어오면 더 많은 제품을 살 것이다.

If it is feasible, put an ad in the local neighborhood newspaper every so often announcing your store and providing some details about the store hours.

실현이 가능하다면, 상점을 알리고 상점에 대한 디테일을 제공 할 수 있게 현지 이웃 신문지에 자주 광고를 넣어라.

Trade Shows

트레이드 쇼

Distributor, local, and national trade shows are great places to get special deals and to see new products and trends in the marketplace. Try to attend as many as you can to keep informed and to mingle with other OTC store owners.

유통 회사, 지역, 그리고 네셔널 트레이드 쇼는 현재 마켓의 특별 세일과 새로운 제품, 그리고 트렌드를 볼 좋은 기회이다. OTC 상점 소유자들과 대화를 나눌 수 있고 알릴 수 있게 이런 트레이드 쇼에 최대한 많이 참여하자.

You can make 2018 a better and more profitable year for your business by implementing some or all of these suggestions. Competition continues to grow so positive steps need to be taken by all in order to be sure that your business continues to thrive and to reach its maximum potential.

이 모든 것을 시행함으로 2018년을 더욱 수익성 있는 해로 만들 수 있다. 경쟁은 계속해서 심해지기에, 비즈니스가 성장하고 번창하려면 모두가 그와 같은 마인드 셋을 가지고 있어야 한다.

Susan Taylor

Essence Magazine, Editor In Chief Emeritus

Susan L. Taylor is synonymous with Essence magazine, the brand she built—as its fashion and beauty editor, as editor-in-chief and editorial director. For 27 years, she authored one of the magazine’s most popular columns, In the Spirit. For nearly three decades, as the driving force behind one of the most celebrated Black-owned businesses of our time, Susan Taylor is a legend in the magazine publishing world.

She was the first and only African-American Woman to be recognized by the Magazine Publishers of America with the Henry Johnson Fisher Award—the industry’s highest honor—and the first to be inducted into the American Society of Magazine Editors Hall of Fame. She is the recipient of the NAACP President’s Award for visionary leadership and has honorary degrees from more than a dozen colleges and universities. A fourth-generation entrepreneur, Susan grew up in Harlem working with her father in his women’s clothing store. She founded her own cosmetics company, a first for Black women, which led to the beauty editor’s position at Essence. She is the author of four books: In the Spirit: “The Inspirational Writings of Susan L. Taylor”; “Lessons in Living”; “Confirmation: The Spiritual Wisdom That Has Shaped Our Lives”, which she co-authored with her husband, Khephra Burns; and her most recent, “All About Love; Favorite Selections from In the Spirit on Living Fearlessly.” She is a much sought-after speaker, inspiring hope and encouraging us to reclaim our lives and create sustainable communities. She is an avid supporter of a host of organizations dedicated to moving the Black community forward, but her passion and focus today is the National Cares Mentoring Movement, a call to action, which she founded in 2006 as Essence Cares. The Cares mentoring movement is a massive campaign to recruit one million able adults

to help secure our children who are in peril and losing ground. “Not on our watch!” she says. “Our children are the mothers and fathers of our tomorrows, and their future is in our hands.” The goals of the Cares movement are to increase high school graduation rates among African-American students, end the violence in Black communities and the over-incarceration of our young. “Creating safe, top-tier schools in every underserved community in this nation is the mandate—and it’s doable,” Taylor says. “Five years ago, I issued a call to action for at least one million able adults to mentor a young child. Today, the National CARES Mentoring Movement has volunteers in 58 U.S. cities and has recruited over 120,000 mentors. Now more than ever, it is important to volunteer our time and talent to those who are suffering around us. Not only does it help them, but it also nourishes us. I am working with community leaders, educators and psychologists to build pilot programs that will change the destiny of children in schools that have high dropout statistics. Our young people need loving adults in their lives who will listen to them, help guide and motivate them and keep them on the right course. If you can give one hour per week and a year’s commitment, you will help save a life. Please visit for more information on the program. Through our efforts, we can help build a better community for African-American youth and families. Please consider how you can make a difference in your life by committing to living healthier and encouraging excellence in education, and share that spirit with as many others as possible.” Susan is a co-founder of Future PAC, the first national political action committee devoted to providing a network of support and sources of funding for progressive African-American women seeking federal and state-level political offices. She is co-chair with Danny Glover of Shared Interest, a capital campaign to raise money to build housing in the rural areas of South Africa, and serves on the boards of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. She has worked passionately to help restore the lives of people in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region who were devastated by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita.

Attitude and Perseverance: Everyone fails and has setbacks at some point. What do the most successful people do differently, and how can you emulate their resilience in your own life? Establishing and maintaining a positive “can-do” attitude, in spite of your challenges, is foundational to helping you be successful. This is much deeper than simply not whining or complaining when things get tough. This is the ability to rewire your brain to approach problems and challenges with “What is the opportunity in this situation?” rather than fixating on the negative issues.


5. 태도와 인내: 모든 사람은 실패하고 어느 시점에서 좌절감을 갖게 됩니다. 가장 성공한 사람들은 어떻게 다르게 행동하며 내 삶에서 그들이 극복했던 것을 어떻게 따라할 수 있을까요? 어려움에도 불구하고 긍정적인 “할 수 있다” 라는 태도를 확립하고 유지하는 것이 성공을 도와주는 기본입니다. 이것은 힘들어 질 때 단순히 징징 거리거나 불평하는 것보다 훨씬 더 심오합니다. 이것은 부정적인 문제에 고집하기보다는 “이 상황에서의 기회는 무엇이지?”라는 문제의식을 갖고 문제와 어려움에 접근하기 위한 생각을 다시 정리해 볼 수 있는 능력입니다.

Legacy and Your Work: There is a tremendous value to be gained from considering how you want to be remembered by your colleagues, and the impact you want to have aligned with your purpose and your work. How will you give back and help others? Reflecting on your desired legacy will help you to identify the seeds you must plant today. Fast forward to your retirement celebration and think of all the things you want people to say about you. What was your impact, and what will carry on in your work and contributions moving forward?

The key to success lies in formalizing and actively implementing your action plan in each of the six areas. Best of luck in pursuing your best days and your best work as you apply this PRIMAL approach!

6. 과거의 유산과 일: 동료들에게 내가 어떻게 기억되고 싶은지를 생각하는것과 목표와 일에 균형을 맞추려고 하는 것에는 엄청난 가치가 있습니다. 어떻게 되돌려주고 다른 사람들을 도와 줄 것인가요? 내가 원하는 유산을 반영하면 오늘 심어야 하는 씨앗을 파악하는데 도움이 될 것입니다. 퇴직 축하 행사를 앞당겨 생각해보고, 사람들이 나에 대해 말할때 듣고 싶은 것을 생각하세요. 나의 영향은 무엇이었으며, 당신의 일과 공헌이 앞으로 어떻게 될까요? 성공의 핵심은 여섯 가지 영역에서 행동 계획을 확고히 하고 적극적으로 실행하는 것입니다. 이러한 원초적인 접근을 통하여 최고의 날과 최고의 실적을 추구하는 최고의 노력을 다하십시오!

Feature Article by Khalia Dunn

Get to Know ’ s r e m o t s u C r You Curls Curly hair was once considered a trend but is now seen as a lifestyle that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Many are now choosing to sport their natural hair texture rather than straightening or chemically altering it. As lovely as it is, curly hair requires a lot more attention and care than the straight or wavy types. Being knowledgeable about the different curl textures is key to understanding what products work best for your natural-hair customers. So, keep this guide in mind when speaking with you shoppers.


3a curls show a loose “S” pattern and is the size of sidewalk chalk in circumference. This hair starts to show a lot of body and is shiny. This hair type is also very fine and prone to frizz. To help these curls pop, recommend Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils Curl La La Defining Curl Custard. “It helps tame the flyways and frizz while keeping the hair soft and curls defined,” said Crystal Styles, the assistant director of marketing at House of Cheatham.


Those with type 3b hair have very defined, springy curls that can range from bouncy ringlets to tight corkscrews. It can get quite coarse and have a bushy-type texture. 3b hair isn’t particularly shiny and is prone to frizz. For a great hair cleanse, suggest the Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracle Apple Cider Vinegar Charcoal Activated Shampoo. According to Miown Bell, the Director of Education at AFAM Concepts, “It removes excess build up. When applied to the hair it draws out impurities in the scalp that can prevent healthy hair growth.”


OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018


3c curls look like tight corkscrews. Curls can be kinky or very tightly curled, with many strands densely packed together. Hair is voluminous, but usually fine in texture. This hair type is very prone to dryness. The Mane Choice Team recommends their Pink Lemonade & Coconut 5-Minute Reviving Mask. It is specifically formulated to deeply penetrate the hair shaft to infuse it with high-quality vitamins, nutrients, and moisture. Perfect for brining dry locks back to life!


Hair type 4a has a definite “S” curl pattern. The circumference is that of a crochet needle and has lots of strands packed densely together. Although it holds more moisture than the other 4 types, it is very fragile and prone to shrinkage. Hair has fewer cuticle layers than other hair types, giving it less natural protection from damage. For help with shrinkage, recommend Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils Don’t Shrink Flaxseed Elongating Curling Gel. “It’s a great solution for naturalistas who prefer to elongate their curls for longer periods of time,” said Styles.


Type 4b hair has a less defined curl pattern. Instead of curling or coiling, the hair bends in sharp angles like the letter “Z.” Hair often shrinks up to 75% and has a cotton-like feel. 4b hair is very fragile and dry, so care is needed when working with it. To help strengthen hair, look no further than Softsheen-Carson’s Dark and Lovely Coil Moisturizing Soufflé. “It treats your curls and coils to a moisturizing delight while helping to reduce breakage,” said Mezei Jefferson, the director of education for the MultiCultural Beauty Division of Loreal. It also provides a low crunch less, hold that instantly defines and softens tight curls and coils for all day elongation.


Type 4c hair is composed of curl patterns that will almost never clump without being styled. The curls are so tightly kinked, there is seemingly no definition. 4c hair has the most shrinkage with over 75%. For moisture retention and elongation, try Jane Carter Solution’s Coiling All Curls Elongation Gel. “Anybody and everybody, no matter how tight your curl is, can use this product,” said Dee Dee Cormier, Vice President of Marketing at Jane Carter Solution. “It’s going to give elongation and hold.”

Manufacturer Profile

Strength of Nature

There aren’t many who are unfamiliar with the product lines underneath the umbrella of Strength of Nature. This juggernaut of a company houses more than 15 brands that cater to women of color, including African Pride, Motions, Dr. Miracle’s, Mega Growth, Proline and Just for Me. With 2018 right around the corner, Strength of Nature shows no signs of slowing down. Kelly Keith, the vice president of marketing, talks with OTC Beauty Magazine about the art of selling the company’s brands in OTC stores, its challenges and its plans for the New Year.

Kelly Keith Strength of Nature의 제품 라인들을 잘 알지 못하는 사람은 그리 많치 않습니다. 이 무적의 회사는 African Pride, Motions, Dr. Miracle’s, Mega Growth, Proline and Just for Me 등을 포함해 유색여성들을 돕는 15개 이상의 브랜드를 가지고 있습니다. 2018년 이 코앞에있는 지금도, Strengh of Nature은 멈출 기미를 보이지 않고 있습니다. 마케팅 부사장인 Kelly Keith가 저희 OTC Beauty Magazine과 함께 OTC 상점에서 회사 브랜드를 판매하는 방법, 힘든점, 그리고 계획에 대해 이야기해 보았습니다. 66

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018

Vice President of Marketing

OTC: What is Strength of Nature founded on as a company? Can you briefly explain its history? Kelly Keith: Strength of Nature has always been anchored in affordable,

OTC: Strength of Nature회사는 어떤 원칙을 두고 설립되었나요? 그 역사를 간단히 설명해 줄 수 있나요? Kelly Keith: Strength of Nature 는 언제나 유색 여성들을 위한

yet efficacious hair care for women of color. We are pioneers in providing maintenance, styling and growth products that don’t break the bank. Serving the consumer fuels us as we focus on developing innovative hair care solutions that make her life easier.

저렴하고도 효과있는 모발 케어를 중심으로 해 왔어요. 저희는 값 비싸지 않은 관리, 스타일, 그리고 성장 제품을 제공하는 선구자에요. 고객들에게 제품을 제공하는 것이 저희들의 원동력이되어 그들의 삶에 도움을 줄 획기적인 모발 케어 솔루션을 개발하는 데 더 집중할 수 있게 됩니다.

OTC: Describe the goods that make up your product portfolio. What tips do you have to help retailers incorporate these items in their stores? Kelly Keith: I am a big fan of segmenting all chemical products together, and all maintenance and styling products together by brand. For example, a brand’s relaxer or texturizer offerings would sit together in the chemical segment. Subsequently, a brand’s shampoo, conditioner, detangler, daily oil moisturizer and edge gel products would be segmented together in the styling and maintenance set. This creates a billboard effect that draws the consumer in and makes her more likely to try other products in a line beyond her goto staples.

OTC: 제품 포트폴리오를 구성하는 제품들을 설명해주세요. 이 제품들을 소매상들이 자신들의 상점에 들여오는 데 도움이 될만한 팁이 있나요? Kelly Keith: 저는 모든 화학 제품들을 한군데로 모으고 모든 관리 및 스타일 제품들을 브랜드 별로 진열하는 것을 매우 선호합니다. 예를 들어 한 브랜드의 릴랙서 또는 텍스쳐라이져 제품들을 화학 코너에 같이 진열해요. 또한, 한 브랜드의 샴푸, 컨디셔너, 디탱글러, 데일리 오일 모이스쳐라이져, 그리고 엣지 젤 제품들은 스타일 및 관리 세트에 다 함께 진열될 거에요. 이렇게 하면 빌보드 처럼 고객들의 시선을 끌 수 있고, 그들이 언제나 사용하는 제품 외에도 같은 종류의 다른 제품들도 사용해 볼 수 있어요.

OTC: Who makes up the primary audience/consumer base for your products? Kelly Keith: Strength of Nature services

OTC: 당신 제품의 일차적인 고객들은 누군가요? Kelly Keith: Strength of Nature 는

such a wide range of women and girls with brands like Just for Me, African Pride and Ultra-Sheen we have something to meet the needs of the consumer at every stage in her life from ages 5 to 95.

Just for Me, African Pride and UltraSheen과 같은 브랜드들로 광범위한 여성들과 소녀들을 돕고있어요. 5세 부터 95세까지 모든 나이에 필요한 제품들을 가지고 있어요.

OTC: If you had to pick one product (or a couple) that is most symbolic of your company, what would it be and why? How is it differentiated from other products in the market? Kelly Keith: I think the Motions Versatile Foam Styling Lotion is a great

OTC: 회사를 가장 잘 상징하는 제품을 하나 (아니면 둘) 선택하라면 무엇을 선택하겠어요, 그리고 그 이유는? 시중의 다른 제품들과는 어떻게 다른가요? Kelly Keith: 제 생각에 Motions Versatile Foam Styling Lotion이

representation of our company because it is an affordable product that works regardless of hair texture or hair state. When it first launched, the Foam Styling Lotion was used for wraps and roller sets. Today it is also being used for braid outs, twist outs, and other natural styles requiring hold. And with ingredients like Shea Butter, Argan Oil and Coconut Oil, it’s actually good for your hair. This type of crossover appeal is rare in our industry and is a great representation of Strength of Nature.

저희 회사를 잘 대표하는 것 같에요, 왜냐하면 모발 텍스쳐나 상태와 상관없이 효과가 있는 저렴한 제품이기 때문이에요. 처음 출시되었을때, Foam Styling Lotion은 랩이나 롤러 세트에 사용되었어요. 이제는 브레이드, 트위스트, 그리고 홀드를 필요로 하는 네추럴 스타일들에 사용되고 있어요. 쉬어 버터, 알간 오일, 코코넛 오일과 같은 재료들을 사용하여 실질적으로 모발에 좋아요. 이런식의 퓨젼은 저희 산업에서 보기 힘들고 이는 Strength of Nature의 좋은 본보기에요.

OTC: What form of product promotion do you believe works best in OTC stores? Why? Kelly Keith: The OTC channel provides the consumer with options they

OTC: OTC 상점에서 어떤 식의 제품 프로모션이 가장 잘 통한다고 생각하나요? 그 이유는 모죠? Kelly Keith: OTC 채널이 고객들에게 다른 곳에서는 찾을 수 없는

can’t find anywhere else, but it also creates a challenge for brands to stand out. I think without a doubt you’ve got to violate at shelf if you want to win in OTC. You’ve got to have danglers, shelf takers, aisle violators, neck hangers, etc. Product promos and in-store promotions are also key. Anything that is going to draw the consumer’s attention to your product on shelf is best.

옵션들을 제공하기는 해도 이 때문에 브랜드가 여러 제품들 사이에서 눈에 띄는게 쉽지 않습니다. 제 생각에는OTC에서 이기기 위해서는 반드시 진열대에 변화를 주어야 해요. 광고를 걸거나 붙이고, 달고 하는 것 등등 말이에요. 제품 프로모와 상점내 프로모션 또한 중요해요. 어떻게든 진열대 위에 당신의 상품들로 고객들의 시선을 끌어야 합니다. OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018


Manufacturer Profile OTC: What trend have you seen grow the most recently in your sector of the beauty business and how is the company meeting consumer demand for it? Kelly Keith: At this point I think it’s safe to say that the natural movement is less of a trend and more of a way of life. One thing I have seen is a shift in the way naturalistas are wearing their hair. I think with the growing popularity of artists like Sza and continued popularity of Tracee Ellis Ross we are going to see an increased focus on curl stretching, elongation and blow outs as consumers go for big hair. We are keeping this trend top of mind as we prepare new products for market.

OTC: What has been the biggest factor contributing to the growth that Strength of Nature has seen as a company? Are there any obstacles you had to overcome, and if so, how did you do so? Kelly Keith: Much of our company’s growth has been due to strategic acquisition of strong legacy brands like Ultra Sheen, Dr. Miracle’s, Just for Me and Motions, making us a leader amongst legacy manufacturers. There’s been somewhat of a challenge maintaining a connection with the natural consumer. She’s so excited by trendy brands of today and eager to try something new. We know that she’s just looking for the best possible options to manage the health and style of her hair, so we’ve doubled down on our efforts to talk to her and understand exactly what she needs, and what she’s missing. Given that, we’re working on some exciting new projects so stay tuned!

OTC: What is Strength of Nature doing to ensure excellent customer service to OTC retailers? How can they benefit from working with you? Kelly Keith: Without OTC retailers our consumer base wouldn’t be fully serviced, so we’ve made the OTC channel a focus for this year. We’ve taken steps to ensure that retailers are getting hands-on customer service at the store level by bringing on a merchandising team 100% focused on store partnerships. We know the level of pride each store owner has in their business and it is our goal to assist in making it as successful as possible. Store owners that partner with us will benefit from pull through programs focused on getting consumers into the stores to make purchases. Brand awareness and product availability on shelf is an essential part of a successful partnership between OTC retailer and manufacturer. As a manufacturer, it is our job to service the OTC channel by ensuring that they have the necessary tools to compete. Our merchandising teams are constantly monitoring and optimizing the product mix at shelf so that it results in lift for our store owners.

OTC: 뷰티 사업 섹터에서 최근에 어떤 트렌드가 커지고 있나요, 그리고 이에 회사가 어떻게 대응하고 있나요? Kelly Keith: 현 시점에선 네추럴로 돌아가는 추세인데, 이는 트렌드라기 보다는 생활방식이라고 해 도 될것 같아요. 제가 본 것중 하나는 자연주의자들의 모발스타일이에요. 제 생각에 Sza와 같은 아티스트들의 인기가 커지고 Tracee Ellis Ross의 인기가 지속됨에 따라 고객들이 트레치, 일롱게이션, 그리고 블로아웃과 같이 큰 헤어 스타일에 관심이 많아 질 것 같아요. 저희는 시장에 새로운 제품을 준비하면서 이를 제일 염두에두고 있어요.

OTC: Strength of Nature 회사의 성장에 가장 큰 공을 준 요소는 무엇이었나요? 넘어서야 할 장애물들이 있나요, 그리고 그렇다면 어떻게 이를 극복했나요? Kelly Keith: 저희 회상 성장은 Ultra Sheen, Dr. Miracle’s, Just for Me, 그리고 Motions과 같은 튼튼한 전통 브랜드들을 전략적으로 병합함으로써 가능했고, 레가시 생산자들의 선두가 될 수 있었어요. 네추럴 스타일의 고객들과의 관계를 유지하는데 어느정도의 문제가 있었어요. 그들은 현재 트렌드한는 브랜드에 빠지고, 새로운 것을 시도하고 싶어해요. 저희는 그들이 단순히 모발 건강과 스타일을 유지할 최고의 방법을 찾고 있는 것을 알기 때문에 두 배로 더 노력을 하여 그들에게 얘기를 하고 그들이 필요한 것, 원하는 것이 정확히 무엇인지 이해하려고 했어요. 이 때문에, 현재 놀라운 새 제품들을 만드는 중이에요, 조금만 기다려 주세요!

OTC: Strenth of Nautre는 OTC 소매상들이 훌륭한 고객 서비스를 제공할 수 있도록 보장하기 위해 무엇을 하고 있나요? 그들이 당신 회사와 일함으로써 어떤 이득을 얻을 수 있나요? Kelly Keith: OTC 소매상들 없이는 저희 고객층이 완전한 서비스를 받을수 없기 때문에 저희는 OTC 채널을 올해의 목표로 했어요. 저희는 상점 파트너쉽에 100% 집중하는 상품 팀을 불러와 고객들이 상점에서 직접적인 서비스를 받을 수 있도록 보장하는 조취를 취했어요. 저희는 각 스토어 주인들이 자신의 스토어에 가지고 있는 자부심을 알고 있고, 이를 최대한 성공적으로 만들게 돕는 것이 저희의 목표에요. 저희와 파트너쉽을 가지는 상점 주인들은 고객들이 상점안으로 들어와 구매를 하는데에 집중하는 풀-쓰루 (pullthrough) 프로그램들을 통해 이득을 볼 거에요. 진열대에서의 브랜드 인지와 상품 존재 여부는 OTC 소매상과 생산자 간의 성공적인 파트너쉽을 위한 필수 요소에요. 생산자로서, 저희의 역할은 OTC 채널들이 경쟁을 위해 필요한 모든 도구들을 갖도록 보장하는 것이에요. 저희 상품 팀들은 진열대의 제품 구조를 항상 모니터하고 최적화하여 상점 주인들이 이득을 볼 수 있도록 합니다.

OTC: Are there any big plans in store for Strength of Nature in 2017 and 2018 that you can share? Kelly Keith: I can’t say too much, but I can tell you that we have a new

OTC: 2017년과 2018년을 위해 준비된 큰 계획들이 있나요? 알려줄수 있나요? Kelly Keith: 다 말해드릴 수는 없지만, 저희에게 새로운 마케팅 팀이

있고 저희가 생각하기에 이 산업을 발전시킬, 커뮤니케이션과 혁신을 주도하는 뛰어난 두뇌들이 있다고는 말해 드릴 수 있어요. 2018년과 미래가 매우 기대되요!

OTC: Is there a central belief that serves as the driving force behind the company? Please explain. Kelly Keith: We believe that exquisite hair care should be accessible to

OTC: 회사를 이끄는 중심 원칙이 있나요? 설명해 주세요. Kelly Keith: W저희는 훌륭한 모발 케어가 모든 여성들에게 저렴한

all women at affordable price points. We approach all innovation and development with this core belief in mind as we strive to create products that make her life easier. OTC: How do you educate consumers and retailers on product knowledge? Do you have an online and/or social media presence? Kelly Keith: In the past we have educated consumers on product usage through our website and we will continue to build out that resource with how to videos and through our expanding social media channels. We are currently revamping our web pages to better serve our consumers, so be on the lookout for more interactive, solution-focused websites in 2018!

OTC: What do you think makes the multicultural beauty industry so unique and exciting? Kelly Keith: There is just so much fun to be had in this industry! The opportunity to create products and communications for women of color is a humbling experience because we get to become a part of so many lives. There’s not one woman of color who can’t name a product she grew up with, or the products her mom used, or even the products she saw at her grandmother’s. These formulas and fragrances are cultural markers that help shape us as women. Technology has come so far since the industry first started, and we are committed to continuing the innovation in this industry.

OTC: What final thoughts would you like to share with OTC readers about the company and/or the beauty industry in general? Kelly Keith: I think the most important thing that any of us in this business can do is listen to and respect our consumer. We are in a time where her thoughts are easily accessible on social media, she wants to communicate with us. In the end, those who succeed in this business will be the ones who heard her and acted accordingly.

가격으로 접근이 가능해야 한다고 믿어요. 저희는 모든 혁신과 개발을 이 믿음과 함께 다루고 고객들의 삶을 더 쉽게 해줄 제품을 만드는데 노력하고 있어요.

OTC: 고객들과 소매상들에게 어떻게 상품들을 소개하나요? 온라인이나 소셜 미디어를 이용하나요? Kelly Keith: 과거에 저희는 웹사이트를 통해 고객들에게 소개를 해왔고, 계속해서 설명비디오들과 점점 커지고 있는 저희 소셜 미디어 채널을 이용하여 이를 계속 해서 발전 시킬거에요. 현재 저희는 고객들을 위해 저희 웹페이지를 탈바꿈하고 있기 때문에 더 사용가능하고 솔루션에 집중된 저희 웹사이트를 2018년에 기대해 주셔도 좋습니다!

OTC: 다문화 뷰티 산업이 정말 특별하고 기대되는 이유가 무엇이라고 생각하나요? Kelly Keith: 이 산업에는 즐거움이 많아요! 유색 여성들을 위한 제품들과 대화의 장을 만드는 것은 저희를 겸손하게 해요, 왜냐하면, 그들과 함께 그들 인생의 일부분이 되기 때문이에요. 유색 여성들은 모두 자신이 자랄 때 사용한 제품, 또는 그녀의 엄마가 사용하던 제품, 아니면 그녀 할머니 집에서 본 제품까지 이름을 다 기억해요. 이 포뮬라와 향들은 저희를 여성으로 가꿔줄 문화적 특징이에요. 이 산업이 처음 시작된 이후로 기술이 이 만큼 발전했고, 저희는 저희 산업에 계속해서 혁신을 불러오기 위해 노력합니다.

OTC: 회사와 일반뷰티산업에 관해 OTC 구독자들과 공유할 마지막 말은요? Kelly Keith: 제 생각에 이 사업에서 저희가 할 수 있는 가장 중요한 것은 저희 고객의 의견을 듣고 존중하는 것입니다. 저희는 고객들의 생각을 소셜 미디어에서 쉽게 알 수 있는 시기에 있어요. 그들은 저희와의 대화를 원해요. 결과적으로, 이 사업에 성공하는 이들은 고객들을 듣고 그에 맞게 행동한 이들이 될 것입니다.

CLIPPER TIPS Sponsored by Andis Co.

Movember Moustache Movement by Kenny Duncan

As November rolls around, Movember – an event promoting the growth of moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide – is the perfect time to highlight the tools needed to maintain that facial hair.

The Tools

A clipper is recommended for gentlemen who desire to keep their growing moustaches under control. Two clippers ideal for taming wild moustaches include the Andis Envy or the new Andis Headstyler. Both tools feature attachment combs that can help any at-home groomer easily maintain a consistent length of moustache. A trimmer comes into play for shaping the outlines of the moustache – especially the area above the upper lip. For the at-home user wanting a cord/cordless product, I recommend the new Andis MultiTrim or the EasyTrim 2 trimmers. The MultiTrim features attachment combs that allow users to groom hair to multiple lengths. The EasyTrim features multiple snapon blades, including a circular blade designed to keep nose hairs from growing into the moustache. For a higher end professional corded trimmer, the T-Outliner GTX is a good choice as it includes four attachment combs for thinning.

The ‘Stache

Moustache shapes vary, but any of these tools could be used to create the three basic chevron, pyramid and pencil-thin shapes. The chevron moustache made famous by Tom Selleck is still popular amongst older men, while the pyramid also remains popular – the legendary hip hop artist, Nas, has worn this shape for years. There are a couple mustaches shapes I never want to see again, such as the horseshoe moustache; it should only be worn by wrestlers like Hulk Hogan. The horseshoe shape is created by shaving the bottom of the chin bald while maintaining the moustache and side bars of the goatee. The walrus is my all-time least favorite moustache shape, because it looks untouched and untidy…think extra-long whiskers on a human. Both of these moustache shapes could be improved with a good trimmer. Remember, men often keep their facial hair after Movember so now is the perfect time to create a focus on clippers and trimmers in-store.

He is the barber for several Grammy Awardwinning artists and has toured the world as the barber for the Lady Gaga production team.

THERAPY TRENDS Innovation Gets Personal in 2018 by Elayne McClaine

The beauty industry will no longer rely on stereotypical beauty standards. Inclusivity versus diversity in marketing will determine the ideal of innovation in the coming year. Beauty standards come in all shapes, sizes, colors, cultures, and genders. Skin tone and hair texture will be marketed as a continuous range reflecting individuals from every biology. The beauty and personal care industry will represent the world, as consumers view the world of unique personalization. Products must be marketed to the millennials as well as the aging boomers. Products must embrace the gender neutral as well as the transgendered. Halal, kosher and vegan will become mainstream benefits in cosmetics as well as toothpaste. The more inclusive the beauty industry becomes, the more diverse beauty shoppers will be able to rapidly embrace who they are and where to find their products. Consumers, especially OTC consumers will expect the industry to respond with personalized innovation. Shades and textures of foundations were recently launched in as many shades as it takes to accommodate and include all consumers. Anti-aging reparative features for the elegant elderly will be positioned as preventative mandates for the pro-aging X and Y generations. Imaging products and tools will be structured for delicate traditional make up and artistic enough for new consumers into the make-up arena to design outside traditional norms. Consumers want it all and they want it fast. Each consumer no matter the ethnicity, culture or gender wants to be considered an equal player in the market place. Consumers will rely on personal claims and personal technology to demand innovation at the store level. Variety, customization and innovative formulations should be available at every price point. Consumers are being influenced by the caliber of products, devices and services available on the web. They want this same personal innovation to meet them in the OTCs.

This latest award comes on the heels of recent recognitions also at TSE and TSNN--

Las Vegas, NV, November 16, 2017--Cosmoprof North America, the largest and most-awarded B2B Beauty exhibition in the US, was named as winner for best Print Advertising Campaign (over 200,001 nsf) at The International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) Art of the Show competition. The competition recognizes excellence in promotional materials for the exhibitions and events industry and it includes 15 different categories of competition, spanning three show sizes. The winners were selected for their creative use of several essential marketing elements needed to promote exhibitions and events. The winning entries will be featured in a gallery style display at Expo! Expo! IAEE’s Annual Meeting & Exhibition to be held 28-30 November 2017 in San Antonio, Texas. “The 2017 print campaign set out to bridge the global events (Las Vegas, Hong Kong and Bologna) while representing unity and diversity in the beauty industry,” says Daniela Ciocan, Marketing Director of Cosmoprof North America. “We are thrilled to have won this award as it is a testament to its successful incorporation and interpretation in North America throughout all marketing communications efforts for the 2017 edition.” To meet the global goal of promoting excellence and unity, Cosmoprof Worldwide commissioned acclaimed Italian photographer, Oliviero Toscani, best-known worldwide for 80

designing controversial advertising campaigns for Italian brand Benetton (from 1982 to 2000), to create the 2017 campaign. Toscani’s interpretation of diversity and beauty without borders, led to a provocative image that featured three women of different ethnicities with cosmetic-like color smears in various places (lips, eyes, hair). The primary goal of Cosmoprof North America was to incorporate the campaign across all communication platforms and make the images appear synonymous with the 2017 event. Whole or parts of the campaign images were used in visual communication across leading up to and at the Las Vegas event. “The Art of the Show Competition provides a nice overview of how the industry is developing because marketing touches on all aspects of any show,” noted IAEE President and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. “We are able to see what’s hot and what is resonating in trade shows since Art of the Show is the only marketing competition specifically targeted to the exhibitions and events industry.” This award comes on the heels of several other recognitions Cosmoprof received, included most recently Trade Show Executives (TSE) Gold 100 Award, Trade Show News Network’ (TSNN) Top 25 Fastest Growing Shows – by Net Square Footage and the Grand Award from UFI in their 21st International Fair Poster Competition for its series of posters.

Industry News L’Oréal Paris Announces Aja Naomi King As Newest Celebrity Spokesperson NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- L’Oréal Paris, the #1 global beauty brand, proudly announces actress Aja Naomi King as the brand’s newest spokeswoman. Aja is one of Hollywood’s top rising stars whose love of beauty was sparked at a young age by her mom. Just as her body of work has evolved with impressive performances and versatile roles across film and television, so has her passion for helping others understand and value their worth. The skilled actress and Yale graduate currently stars in the hit series “How to Get Away with Murder.” In her newest role, Aja joins an esteemed roster of spokeswomen including Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Elle Fanning and Camila Cabello, among others, in representing the brand. “Growing up, I watched my mom apply her makeup in the morning and wanted so badly to be part of that daily ritual with her. Seeing how much she enjoyed putting makeup on, including her go-to L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour, inspired me to love makeup as much as she did,” says Aja Naomi King. “Makeup became my armor growing up. It provided me with a sense of protection and gave me the power and confidence to face the world in the way I wanted. To now represent L’Oréal Paris is incredibly overwhelming. I am so excited to help others find and believe in the beauty of who they are because everyone deserves to know their own worth.” “In welcoming Aja to the L’Oréal Paris family, we are thrilled to strengthen our diverse roster of spokeswomen and further connect with a younger generation of consumers,” says Tim Coolican, President, L’Oréal Paris USA. “Aja has openly and powerfully shared her journey to overcoming feelings of self-doubt and as such, inspires others to embrace their own beauty and self-worth. She is incredibly talented, accomplished and most importantly, fully understands and embraces our brand philosophy of ‘Because You’re Worth It’”. Aja will star in TV, print and digital advertising campaigns for the leading global beauty brand beginning in the United States in early 2018. Her first campaign will be for True Match Lumi Glow, a new collection of five products designed to create an effortless and luminous glow – Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer, Glow Nude Palette, Shimmerista Powder, Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops and Bronze It Bronzer. Following True Match Lumi Glow, Aja will be featured in campaigns for Hair, Skincare, as well as Cosmetics. Additionally, Aja will serve as a presenter at L’Oréal Paris’ Women of Worth celebration on December 6, 2017. The annual event celebrates ten inspiring women who are making a difference in

their communities across the country. Tapping into her steadfast commitment of inspiring others to see their own value, she will also be leveraged to drive moments of worth and empowerment for the brand through event appearances, social media promotion and campaign engagement.

Most recently, she received critical acclaim for her role in the groundbreaking feature, “The Birth of a Nation.” Aja was nominated for a 2017 NAACP award in the category of “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture” for her performance, and the film won multiple awards at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Industry News Beautycounter—the Leader in Safer Beauty—Endorses Personal Care Products Safety Act

Joined by a group of safer beauty brands, the company backs bill introduced by Senators Feinstein and Collins calling for FDA authority to regulate safety of beauty products WASHINGTON, Nov. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Counter Brands, LLC. – parent company of Beautycounter, the leader in safer skin care and cleaner cosmetics, today announced it will endorse the Personal Care Products Safety Act (S.1113). Following the company’s guidance, several other safer beauty brands signed a letter supporting the legislation, including côte and tenoverten nail polish brands, Vapour Beauty, OSEA and S.W. Basics skin care, among others. The bill, introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine), takes a significant step toward updating the current regulatory structure governing cosmetics and skin care products. It calls for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate the safety of ingredients used in beauty and grooming items and promotes transparency in the industry, requiring companies to post complete label information about their products, report adverse events related to their products to the FDA and provide the agency with information about ingredients contained in their products. “Recent studies show that health issues like cancer, infertility and hormone disruption are on the rise due in part to ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals,” said Gregg Renfrew, Beautycounter Founder and CEO. “Our mission is to get safer, high-performing personal care products into the hands of everyone. For nearly four years, we have worked tirelessly in Washington to build momentum for legislative reform of the cosmetics industry. We look forward to continuing our work with Senate HELP Committee leadership as they undertake this important piece of consumer safety legislation.” Despite its continuous growth, the $62 billion beauty industry in the United States has largely gone unregulated. The Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act of 1938 is the most recent major regulation adopted by the industry, which essentially allows personal care product companies to self-regulate. The Personal Care Products Safety Act would give the FDA more oversight to ensure product safety through a variety of mandates, including having to evaluate a minimum of five ingredients, or classes of ingredients per year for safety; ordering recalls; requiring complete ingredient information on labels and more. “Americans use a variety of personal care products daily, and they should be able to know whether the products that they are applying to their hair or skin, or to their children, are safe,” said Senator Collins. “By updating FDA oversight of the ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products for the first time in nearly 94

OTC Beauty Magazine January 2018

80 years, the bipartisan Personal Care Products Safety Act will help increase safety for consumers, protect small businesses, and provide regulatory certainty for manufacturers. We welcome the endorsement of these American entrepreneurs and look forward to working together to continue building support for this important bipartisan bill in the Senate.” “We continue to build momentum for our bill to update the nearly 80-year-old safety rules for personal care products, gaining support from a wide-range of companies that know how common sense rules of the road help businesses succeed,” Senator Feinstein said. “Thank you to Beautycounter for their support and I look forward to working with them to move this bill forward.” Beautycounter is mobilizing its base in support of the bill, including its clients and network of more than 25,000 Independent Consultants across all 50 states. A certified B Corporation, Beautycounter has been active on Capitol Hill since its founding in 2013, and recently launched the Counteract Coalition, an advocacy initiative made up of nearly 20 clean, high-performance beauty brands dedicated to advancing a safer cosmetics industry. About Beautycounter

Seventy percent of millennial women said they feel the need to downplay the time and effort they put into their looks, due, in part, to today’s world of woke-up-like-this selfies, according to a new survey by TRESemme’.

The brand partnered with clinical psychologist and confidence expert Dr. Judy Ho to poll millennial Michelle Chandler

women and found that hair can actually give women the confidence to walk taller every day. “68% of women feel there is a stereotype about women who spend time on their appearance. The hesitation seems to come from the belief that women may be taken less seriously if they look doneup, especially in a professional setting. However we know that most women believe that their hair and beauty routine contribute greatly to their confidence, which leads to t feel more effective in work and social settings,” explains Dr. Ho. Just 40% of Google Hair Care searches specify a brand, down from 44% the year before. Instead, consumers are actively researching products specific to their hair type, gender, ethnicity and by product ingredients, as searches for tea tree, coconut milk and keratin climbed to new heights in June 2017, representing, 100%, 67% and 54% of Indexed Google search volume.
