EDITOR’S LETTER

The Art of Reinvention

I

t is never too late to embrace the spirit of reinvention. This is a great time to consider reintroducing yourself to your customers. The world is always moving and changing. Your customers are not the same people they were last year, or possibly, even last month. As a leader and store manager, it’s important to remember that it’s ok that things change. All that matters is how you adapt to those changes. The first step in figuring out if your brand needs reinvention is to assess where you are in your growth model. Take a look at your sales and customer feedback to see what’s changed and why. You could reintroduce yourself to your customers by launching a campaign that helps people remember the reason why you opened your store in the first place. You could share your OTC journey with your customers on social media or in a newsletter campaign. Another way to reinvent yourself is to change the way your store looks. Remerchandising, painting the walls a new color, or adding chairs with a few beauty magazines nearby, could help your customers feel more comfortable in your store. Because of the Pandemic, many people are still craving authentic interactions so don’t forget about the value of a friendly smile and impeccable service. For tips on branding check out “6 Things Every CEO Needs to Know About Branding to Better Manage The Human Side of Business,” on page 20. Our July issue focuses on the importance of Hair Care and the people behind the brands. Getting to know the story behind the brands in your store can be helpful when explaining the product benefits to your customers. Check out our Manufacturer Profile on KAB Brand’s on page 18. We’ve also put together a great list of Dream World products for adding a variety of options to your store in our MarketPlace on page 12. I am really thankful for your readership and I truly hope that the pendulum of success continues to swing in your direction. I will continue to gather inspiration for tips on business growth, research new products, and share brand education with you. Allyson Leak EDITOR

MARKETPLACE

Hair Care

Customers come to your shop for a variety of reasons. Whether they need regular hair maintenance items, something for a special event, or a gift for a friend, it’s important that you offer as many hair and beauty tools, products, and accessories as possible. Having an idea of what your repeat customers like and how often they come in and shop can help, too.

Q: If you had to pick three words to describe your ApHogee brand, what would they be? Unique. Effective. Respected.

Q: Who is your main audience and what sets your brands apart from the rest of the industry? ApHogee’s positioning is “Serious Care and Protection for Damaged or Weak Hair.” Our Two Step Protein Treatment is well-known among curly/textured hair community and is unique and

OTC Beauty Magazine July 2022


Q:

We know ApHogee is your original two-step protein treatment. What is unique and important about this two step process?

Hair is made of protein and nothing repairs structural damage like the right activated protein in the right system. We add emollients and humectants AFTER the protein, in the second step, and not mixed in with our protein. This gives far better results and lasts much longer than the typical “Intensive Conditioner”. Results are visible instantly.

Q: How have your customers responded to the Curlific line? How does this quinoa based product help curly hair? When the curl trend started taking off, some companies re-fragranced and re-packaged existing formulas for this growing market. We spent 3 years of testing to develop products that were formulated specifically for hair that is naturally curly, wavy, coily and also for those who wear their hair straight or natural. The cross section of a curly hair shaft is different than that of straight hair. This difference leads to easier damage to the cuticle in styling, which is why curly hair tends to dry out more easily. Curly hair not only needs moisture but sealers to retain the moisture. Our Quinoa protein is specialized and unique, in that it contains a higher percentage of sulfur containing amino acids than even keratin protein. Sulfur containing amino acids are among the most important in hair structure.

Q: We know you specialize in the science of hair and proven results. Is there any info from any of your recent studies that you’d like to share? Our current advertising touts one of our most important findings: “Porous Hair treated with a single application of ApHogee Two Step Treatment prior to coloring shows 30% less color fade after 10 shampooings, on average” ApHogee

Two

Step

Treatment

solves the two biggest problems that afflict hair color clients: Breakage and Fading! Other current studies involve new products and are proprietary.

Q: How do you share product knowledge with your customers and retailers?

and informative. Visitors can ask any hair question on “Ask the Expert” and receive an answer within 24 hours, often within a few hours. Anyone can also answer 4 questions on a simple pull down menu and get a prescription of 1-4 recommended products based on their hair type, texture and regimen.

Q: How has your experience been with social media marketing? Do you find it’s a good way to connect with your customers? We have an excellent social media industry partner helping us spread the word on ApHogee and we continue to learn how to evolve our messaging to different audiences. It is a great way to connect with existing and potential users. We are fortunate to have a very active community, that loves to share their success stories with our products on social media! We also have a robust

influencer and ambassador program to help spread the word and educate users on ApHogee. Our social platforms and programs have helped us bring ApHogee to a new generation and broader global market.

Q:

How can OTC stores benefit from having your product lines in their stores. What suggestions do you have about store placement of your items? ApHogee is moderately priced for good turns and we don’t sell to any high volume, mass market discounters. We offer good profit margins and a solution for the most serious problems their customers have. We help make them “Problem Solvers” and business builders, not just retailers.

Q: What does the future hold for KAB brands? Are there any new projects or products you’re working on? Yes. The past two years with Covid we have had to focus on core inventory and supply chain issues that all companies are facing. We’ve doubled our inventory on-hand to maintain 95% plus service levels to our customers. We are moving forward on new projects and products this year and will continue to deliver exceptional, innovative products.

We have a robust field sales representative force that does sales/education meetings periodically and our website, aphogee.com, is very user friendly

culture. Powerful brands like Nike become social concepts and exist in the culture where they continually give people cues and establish the brand as a part of society.

2.

Brands Set Meaning: Brands give meaning to products. The brand is a mental lens that provides immediate meaning. A Snickers bar is a snack. Tiffany means luxury taste and quality. Apple is about unleashing creativity while IBM is about improving productivity. The brand provides context which tells people why a product is important to them.

3.

Brands Carry Emotional Power: Like great art, brands are designed to elicit a response, both emotional and rational. Like art, they can enchant and often captivate people which creates desire. Marlboro was the first filter-tipped cigarette and was initially launched as a woman’s cigarette which wasn’t as successful. The same product was re-branded as the ultimate masculine smoke and with the swagger of the Marlboro man still remains one of the most powerful brands in the world. Powerful brands are mythologies that evoke emotions that swell to desire.

4.

Brands are Fiction Not Fact: Branding is poetry not journalism. Messaging matrixes and value propositions belong to marketers and are fact-based. Branding is another world that is concept-based. Branding brings out the big gun – an idea. A powerful, transcendent, mind-tweaking idea designed to engage the mind and heart at another level. The idea is what catalyzes new behavior and thinking. The Home Depot is a large hardware store, but the brand makes it a Home Center for any current and aspiring do-it-yourselfer.

5.

Brands Defy Logic: When you have a powerful brand, you’ll be surprised by what it can do. You will see strong conviction and commitment across employees, customers and investors despite challenges. People tend to defend the brands they love and stay loyal against all odds – better alternatives, cheaper alternatives, easier

Many corporate executives view the brand as simply a marketing asset.

Is Procrastination Bad or Good, and Should You Trust a Procrastinator? A very famous preacher was procrastinating until the last minute on writing a very public speech he was to give. He went on stage without having the entire speech completed. He was a procrastinator. Then, on stage, at the last minute, he added four more words to it and decided to start his speech with the words: “I have a dream...” What do you think when you hear the word “procrastination?” Is that a positive or negative word to you? We typically think of the word negatively and associate it with laziness, being disorganized, and not being strategic. But did you know that there are positive aspects to procrastination? This article will first show both the negative and positive aspects of procrastination. It will also give you some advice as to how to decide whether to procrastinate or not. But the most important part is showing you how to determine whether you should trust a procrastinator or not and whether you should be trusted based on your procrastination profile.

person will not be available in the short window before the project deadline. •

The schedule may get pulled in, leaving you with insufficient time to complete it before the deadline.

You may experience stress as the looming deadline is nearing. That stress could adversely impact your ability to complete the project on time and at a high quality, not to mention the negative impact on your health.

Life happens. Something unplanned and unexpected could happen that will have a higher priority over the project, and once you shift your attention to it, you will not be able to complete the project on time.

The longer you wait, the higher the probability that you will forget about the project or the deadline and, as a result, miss it.

Missing the project due date for any of the reasons above could impose significant and negative consequences for you.

better) alternatives if you must offer a few in your deliverable. •

With time, you may come across information that may not have been available early on and is available now. Information you use may be more relevant and timelier.

You give information and ideas already in your head more time to incubate. You cannot force old ideas to combine into fresh ones, and you must give them time, and procrastination will give that process time.

You have more time to ask more people for their thoughts, advice, or use more people as sounding boards for what you think your deliverable should be.

There is always the probability that the project gets canceled. If you do your part early without procrastinating, you may have just wasted your time and effort.

The schedule may get pushed out, causing your deliverable to become dated, irrelevant, or simply putting undue pressure on you.

Even without the schedule being pushed out, as time passes, things change. Your ideas and recommendations may become invalidated given new developments and new information.

To Procrastinate, or Not to Procrastinate? •

First, ask yourself if you get stressed over looming deadlines. If you are, then don’t procrastinate. Get it over with and avoid the pressure.

Ask yourself whether you have everything you need at the beginning. Do you have all the information you need? Do you fully understand what you must do? Do you have access to the people or resources you need? Will that access stop at some point? Once you map those out, you can decide whether you can procrastinate and how long. Prioritize the tasks that may have time-limited resources and information.

Ask yourself: what is the probability of you having more ideas, finding better alternatives, having more access to more (or new) information, or that having access to ideas, information, or people could improve the quality of your deliverable? If there is a low probability or impact of those things, you might as well not procrastinate. But if there is a high probability or impact, you may want to wait.

Ask yourself: what is the probability of something urgent happening, or of you forgetting the deadline? If the probability is high, you might want to start soon and avoid procrastination.

Meet Yoram

The Best of Both Worlds As you embark on (or are assigned) a project, map out all the questions above. Get access to all the information and people you need before they are not available to you. But most importantly, make a draft, a prototype, or something that is good enough (albeit not at the highest quality you can deliver). If something happens, you will still have something to show, and something is typically better than nothing. As time passes, you can refine your deliverable with new information, new ideas, new alternatives, incubation, and access to people to run your ideas by. Your final deliverable will be better but not in jeopardy because you didn’t do anything about it and missed the deadline.

Should You Trust a Procrastinator? The quick answer is, “it depends.” You can determine that procrastination is neither good nor bad in an absolute, universal way. It’s not like telling the truth, which is a universal and absolute trustworthy component. Procrastination is a personality trait, and as such, trusting a procrastinator is a relative issue. Different people are simply different in their procrastination tendencies, and it doesn’t make them good or bad. Trustworthiness is contextual, which means that you may trust a procrastinator in certain contexts, but not in others—probably depending on the consequences to you. Finally, trust is also asymmetrical, which means that a procrastinator may trust someone who is not a procrastinator. Still, someone who is not a procrastinator may not trust a procrastinator.

CLIPPER TIPS

Sponsored by Andis Co.

Refresh, Refine, reVITE from Andis

Pull off flawless blending, smooth fades or textured tapers with the new reVITETM Clipper from Andis. This sleek clipper, available in two versions, was developed with an innovative blade set design that combines the functionality of an adjustable blade with the convenience of a removable blade, making blade swap-outs and maintenance easier than ever. Even recording artist Khalid couldn’t resist the reVITE Clipper in his “Last Call” music video, released earlier this year.

Sleek Design with High-speed Performance These professional clippers feature a high-speed motor, a comfortable grip for any hand size and a high-capacity battery delivering a 2-hour run time. The reVITE black version features an unbreakable aluminum lower housing and comes with a Fade blade that adjusts from 00000-000 for skin-close cutting. The reVITE gray version utilizes a composite housing for ultra-lightweight comfort and includes a Taper blade that adjusts from 000-1 for all-around haircutting. Both blades are constructed of stainless steel.

A Removable AND Adjustable Blade Set? Yes - the reVITE clipper gives you the functionality of both in one! Each blade assembly includes the adjustable lever and features a snap-on design. This means no tools are required to change blades – it’s quick and easy for you to continue creating with one single tool. “This setup is a game-changer for me. The weight is amazing along with the balance. It’s hard for me to put this clipper down when fading, free-handing or cutting clipper-over-comb. It’s my favorite clipper,” says, Donald “D.C.” Conley II, Andis Global Educator. Whichever version of the reVITE clipper customers ultimately choose, retailers can help them add more versatility by upselling the additional blade set – a Fade blade or a Taper blade (each purchased separately).

SUMMER HOW-TO BY RENOWNED CELEBRITY STYLIST, SUZETTE BOOZER AND APHOGEE HAIR CARE ApHogee hair care has been a go-to for renowned celebrity stylist Suzette Boozer for a very long time. Recently Boozer worked with Natasha Ward, a noted actress, vocalist and one of the most noted

fitness model. Boozer shared, “Natasha’s hair journey has been incredible. In her profession, healthy and beautiful hair is key. So, for the summer, I did “little dusting” on her hair then created “wash-

n-go” look that keeps her looking on-trend and fresh throughout the season. It’s perfect for very textured hair, which I adore.” Suzette Boozer’s Wash-n-Go Step-by-Step: 1.

Natasha hair was previously straightened, so before I shampooed her hair, I will give “less than a trim.” It’s called “dusting” - just enough to maintain healthy hair and ends.

2.

Next, we cleansed the hair with ApHogee Deep Moisture

Shampoo (16 oz. / $8.99). I recommend 2 complete rounds of massaging and lather hair and scalp.

3.

Completely rinse out shampoo and apply the ApHogee

Rinse out the Reconstructor completely but leave hair still

wet/drenched. Then apply and “scrunch” in ApHogee Curlific!

Next, add a generous amount of ApHogee Curlific! Curl Definer (8 oz. / $8.99 MSRP) to hair. I love to cocktail the

SQUEEZE and SCRUNCH hair with this product combination,

making sure hair evenly saturated. Shake curls side to side, up and down and watch curls coil!
