5 Necessities to Navigage Your Team Through the Fog By Mark Oristano

EDITORIAL LETTER

A Natural

y t u Bea

Thanks to the many innovations in the beauty industry, you can easily cover scars, hide gray hairs and soften or accentuate your facial features. Beauty is now as readily available as a tube of lipstick in a drugstore. It’s easy for people to get caught up in meeting today’s lofty beauty ideals. Covering parts of our physical selves to be seen as beautiful has been a distinctive aspect of the beauty niche until now. Thanks to the pandemic, we are beginning to see the beauty in natural beauty. As we all waited for our chance to return to a sense of normalcy, advancing your skincare routine was far more important than wearing the most expensive foundation or eyeliner. However, natural beauty has always been a thing. It just gained momentum in recent months, with consumers looking for more effortless makeup and hair regimens for Zoom meetings and staying at home. What does that mean for you as an OTC retailer? That means you’ll need to be mindful of what’s most important to your shoppers. Products that encourage healthy hair and growth will do well in your shops. Skincare essentials such as rosewater and tea tree oil will also continue to be high on the list for customers. Remember, it’s all about accentuating your natural features. Help your shoppers embrace their natural texture with our highest-performing curl products on page 51. You can also stock up on other natural-hair must-haves such as hair gel, edge control and styling foam. Get inspired with a few of our favorites in the Marketplace on page 12. There’s no doubt that you’ll have plenty of customers who will prefer the complete opposite of this trend. But as long as you keep all shoppers’ beauty demands in

MARKET PLACE

Natural Hair Necessities The term “natural” has been used interchangeably with those who wear their natural, textured tresses. However, it’s not always about bracing your kinks and curls. Sometimes natural hair refers to those who choose to wear their hair in locs or even protective styles like twists and braids. That means there are tons of merchandise that shoppers may want to keep on hand to cater to their ever-changing styles. Here are a few of our favorites.

REPAIRING CONDITIONER When tresses are dry and dull, reach for the Hask Argan Oil from Morocco Repairing Conditioner. This special formula penetrates the hair shaft, leaving hair silky soft and glossy. Best of all, it’s free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates and gluten.

LOC & BRAID BUTTER Styling your hair in braids or locs has never been as easy as it is with the Sulfur 8 Loc Twist & Braid Butter. Perfect for styling your favorite twist, loc and braid styles, it can add beautiful shine for natural hair and extensions.

12

OTC Beauty Magazine June 2021


LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER Textured hair will love the Nappy Styles Quick Soft LeaveIn Conditioner that can soften and repair dry, damaged tresses. The product is formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and black castor oil to nourish the hair without the greasy buildup.

CURL GEL If thick, juicy curls are the goal, shoppers will love the Curls B Enviable Creamy Curl Gel. Formulated with marshmallow root, this innovative gel can condition the tresses and provide medium hold without the unnecessary crunchiness.

DEFINING CONDITIONER When definition and detangling are the name of the game, the ON Organic Natural Curl-N-Wavy Curl Defining Conditioner & Detangler is a perfect choice. Made for natural and human hair, this conditioning spray helps repair dry, damaged hair and prevent breakage.

BRAID GEL You can’t just braid hair without remembering to lay your “baby hairs.” The Shine ‘n Jam Magic Fingers Edge Magic for Braiders offers the extreme hold you need to sculpt and create a style with ease. Plus, its silk protein formulation helps strengthen the hair along the hairline.

EDGE CONTROL If laying and growing your edges are the goal, the Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Edge Hair Gel is a great option. Infused with authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil, this gel can also work as a moisturizer, adding tons of brilliant shine.

CURLY JELLY Defined, shiny curls and coils? Yes, please! The As I Am Curling Jelly reduces frizz and shrinkage and instead works to elongate hair. Formulated with the best moisturizers and curl-friendly ingredients, your strands will thank you for using it.

HAIR DRESS Soothe your scalp while adding incredible shine to your hair with the Softee Pure Coconut Oil Hair & Scalp Conditioner. It replenishes dry and brittle hair and prevents damage like dryness, breakage and split ends.

WAVE CREAM Men who prefer to wear hair waves may want to accentuate that texture. That’s where the WaveBuilder Spin’n Waves Wave Cream comes in. This non-greasy hair cream trains your waves and makes your hair more manageable.

CURL ACTIVATOR Don’t just moisturize your parched strands; activate your curls and coils with the Sofn’ Free Healthy Hair 2-in-1 Curl Activator Moisturizing Lotion. Made with Vitamin E and panthenol to condition the hair, it is formulated to make sure your hair looks shiny and healthy.

LOCKING GEL You can’t just loc your hair with any gel. Locticians look for a gel that provides a firm hold without those pesky flakes or residue. Enter: Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel. Known to leave a soft and silky finish, this gel is sure to help shoppers maintain their locs and twists with a long-lasting hold.

HOW SHOULD

YOU SELL IT?

By Scott Zangwill

Embracing your natural hair can be tricky when you’re losing it faster than you can grow it. Whether it’s traction alopecia or male pattern baldness, hair thinning and loss is a genuine problem. How can you help your customers’ address this issue and increase sales while you’re at it? Merchandiser Scott Zangwill offers tips on how you should sell . . .

HAIR LOSS PRODUCTS “Losing your hair? Well, look no further than your local OTC beauty supply store. Starting in our 20’s, our hair recedes, falls out or starts thinning. What can be done, and what can you, as the OTC store owner, do to help your customers with these issues? First, we need to help the customers that want to help fix this issue and find the right products.

You’ll need to have proper signage in the store to help direct the customers to these products. Then you may need a store manager or employee that is up to date with these types of products. These are the top-selling items you can sell in your OTC store:

1. Vitamin B 2. Coconut Oil 3. Tea Tree Oil 4. Black Seed Oil 5. Vitamin D (helps to produce new hair follicles and restore growth) 6. Olive Oil (when massaged into the scalp, this will help stimulate hair growth) 7. And, of course, Minoxidil - the leading product to help reduce hair loss and invigorate new growth.

There are so many products to mention, yet a few of our favorite sellers include Kaleidoscope Miracle Drops, Barber Shop Aid, The Mane Choice Hair Solution, Bronner Bros. Super Gro Max, Rogaine, Wild Growth Hair Oil, Doo Gro Hair Revitalization, Cantu Gro Strong, Doo Gro Leave-in Treatment, Jamaican Black Castor Oil and many more.

Place these items near your shampoos and wigs and any other related areas around your store. Remember, different hair types, customers’ needs and other factors will determine which products shoppers gravitate towards in your shop.

Meet Scott

Scott Zangwill is the founder and owner of Merchandising Specialists, Inc. His company specializes in getting your new products into the stores very quickly, as he has an excellent rapport with the store owners. Not only do Merchandising Specialists put out POP material, sales sheets, and samples, they are excellent at getting turnover orders quickly, getting the new products into the store and turning detailed monthly reports, as well.

BUSINESS TIPS

By Mark Oristano

Rules to Being a Really Lousy Leader

Ways to Have ‘Em Hate You Bad leaders have something over the good ones. Bad leaders have much better job security. Why? Simple. They run off anybody who is a threat to them before any damage can be done. Bad leadership is an art form. It’s not easy to make yourself into the kind of leader who nobody wants to follow anywhere. Since this underrated art form and the job security that goes with it are seemingly in great demand, here are Five Rules for Lousy Leadership!

RULE #1: “WHAT’S RIGHT IS WHAT I SAY IS RIGHT!” A very simple way to let everybody know, right out of the gate, that there is only one person at the top, and that person is you. Your genius, your organization skills, your foresight and your intelligence, will take you onto new heights, despite your team’s ineptitude. From the start, you simply tell them, “It’s all been carved in stone. I speak. You agree.” It’s amazing how effective a weapon this can be in your Lousy Leadership arsenal. You ever see those shows about Buckingham Palace and how the help all stops and bow their heads whenever a royal walks by? Well, that’s how your people will be whenever you walk down the hall. Or, better yet, whenever you burst into a room and yell out, “Who’s working hard today?” Just the sort of thing to make their little hairs on the back of their insecure little necks stand on end.

RULE #2: “KEEP THAT GREAT PLAN YOU MADE ALL TO YOURSELF.” Somewhere deep in your desk drawer, there is a copy of the master plan you drew up for the company. Well, the master plan the vice-presidents drew up under threat of loss of parking spaces if they ever deny you wrote it. It’s probably a pretty good plan that can take the company forward, get everyone on the same page. But it involves a true terror for a Lousy Leader. To implement the plan, one department must know what another department is doing. And you can’t have that. So when you are asked about the plan, you say, “Yeah, we have a plan. What great business doesn’t? But if I want you to know what’s going on in another department, I’ll tell you what’s going on in another department.” Quick about-face and back to your private dining room.

RULE #3: “IT’S NOT A LIE IF YOU BELIEVE IT.” Your people know you to be a person of impeccable honor (Right!). They must trust you because, to a large degree, you never have any interaction with them. So they must believe you are doing the top job brilliantly. On those rare and unfortunate occasions when you find yourself forced to mingle at a staff meeting, at the all-too-rare awards handouts or, god forbid, on Pizza Friday, there is a simple way to let everybody know that everything is alright. When called on to speak, just take the mic, fake that sincere look and say, “People – one thing is always true. You know I would never lie to my family!” Look out over their faces, bask in the warmth of their admiration for you. Quick about-face and back to your office, door closed as always.

RULE #4: “IT’S VERY SIMPLE, REALLY.” So many unknowing people think that leadership is a terribly difficult task to master. To get to that seven-figure salary level must take years of climbing the ladder, finding a mentor and so on. However, you know the truth is that even though others helped you out (every now and then), you did the climb on your own. There’s nobody to thank when they come to

This last one is so obvious; it’s almost shameful to list it for you. The greatest motivator of all is . . .fear. If you can arrange the office so that the mere sight of you makes breath catch in your people’s throats, you’re on the way to becoming a Lousy Leader. Everything else is small potatoes next to this rule. Tell them if they want a friend to get a dog. Nothing… NOTHING succeeds like FEAR.

The idea of “Trusting the Process” is good in theory, but all too often, the “process” is blurry due to a lack of clarity on the game plan or the inability of the messenger to communicate the road ahead.

Do we do what we say we are going to do? Do we hold ourselves and others accountable for holding up our end of the commitment? Leaders deposit trust by being transparent about the ob-stacles and what hasn’t been successful and by honoring their commitments. As the messenger, they deposit trust by owning the next stretch of road ahead and jumping in with the team to seek solutions.

NATURAL HAIR MAINTENANCE The maintenance of natural hair takes a lot of time, effort, money and patience. Nielsen data found that Black women spend nine times more on ethnic beauty and grooming products than the average for all consumers. Luckily, manufacturers are creating and promoting products for natural hair more than ever before. But more product options can be confusing for new naturals. Customers need to determine which products work best for their hair and ensure their strands stay healthy and moisturized.

By Nicole McCray

When the pandemic hit last year, everyone held their breath to see how it would affect the beauty industry. While it’s true that COVID did cause some decline in revenue, history tells us that the beauty industry is incredibly resilient. And this time is no different! Today’s trend-driven multicultural consumers are defining the US beauty industry in 2021. It looks like there will be rapid growth for the next several years. Here’s how multicultural skincare trends will define the beauty industry going forward.

TREND ALERT

among women ages 18-34. Multistep K Beauty routines resonate with multicultural customers, too, with as many as 30% stating that their daily skincare routine has three steps or more. Korean skincare is becoming more mainstream among U.S. consumers, and many multicultural brands are launching textures and formulas that echo their Eastern counterparts. In 2021, look for even more products like sheet masks, essences, and jelly cleansers, as well as multi-tasking products created to slim down the productheavy 10-step routine.

The K Beauty Trend is Here to Stay Look for More Indigenous Ingredients The majority of multicultural women who follow a daily skincare routine say that natural beauty is where it’s at. And natural, botanical-based skincare trends like K Beauty are showing steady growth in the US market. As many as 9% of women are interested in following the Korean beauty (K Beauty) trend, that number increases steadily to 18%

The multicultural skincare market has traditionally leaned toward sweet and tropical scents. But in 2021 we expect skincare brands to build formulas around indigenous ingredients like yams and nectars. Brands will choose ingredients for their restorative and therapeutic properties, as well as their beauty benefits. The focus will be on protecting the skin and enhancing natural beauty, rather

OTC Beauty Magazine June 2021

than adornment. This trend is about a simpler, more wholesome way of life, including using simpler, more natural products on your face and body.

Multicultural Consumers Want Personalized Skincare Options Shoppers want personalized products they can relate to. Many women aren’t heading to the aesthetician or dermatologist as often as they used to, so they want products formulated for their specific needs, such as DNA-based skincare. Although the trend of supplemental skincare has been around for years, it’s expected to take off this year. This trend focuses on caring for the skin from the inside out with personalized supplements rich in vitamins, antioxidants and probiotics. It’s not just about applying product to the skin anymore; consumers are looking for products that nourish and nurture the skin on a deeper level.

Greater Demand for Vegan Skincare According to the Washington Post, veganism is growing rapidly among African Americans in the U.S. In 2021, brands will respond to this trend by introducing many vegan beauty products, from skincare to haircare, specifically for multicultural consumers. Ingredients will be chosen more from a cultural and global perspective, with niche vegan offerings that are personalized and uber luxurious, not just in women’s products, but also in men’s.

Meet Nicole

The Work-from-Home Trend Will Continue to Influence the Beauty Industry This year is going to be all about DIY skincare and beauty. Look for a substantial increase in the number of women and men coloring their hair at home and purchasing products to care for it. People will be experimenting more at home, not only because they don’t want to go out, but also because they have more free time. And, there’s less risk since they’re staying close to home anyway. People will be trying things they’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had the nerve, like guys going blond and girls trying purple, green or blue hair. Décolletage skincare is becoming increasingly important because everyone is doing Zoom meetings and they’re only being seen from the chest up. On a side note: it looks like body care products of all types will be another big trend going forward.

Men’s Skincare Will Gain Traction Men are just beginning to delve deeper into personal care, and we’ll see more and more of them become interested in skincare and color correction this year. Men will begin looking for their own spot correctors and age-defying treatments, and brands will be positioning themselves to fill that need. For men of color, dark spots and acne on the neck after shaving are a huge issue. Products that even out skin tone, such as tinted lotions, will be huge. Treatments that prevent and correct these issues will be in high demand as well.

Nicole McCray has been obsessed with beauty and fashion since she was a young girl, always flipping through Vogue and stealing her mother’s cosmetics bag to experiment. While her days are now spent contributing to fashion, beauty, and lifestyle sites from home while raising her kids, she can always be found putting looks together, even if it’s just for a trip to the grocery store!

CLIPPER TIPS

Sponsored by Andis Co.

The Most Useful Father’s Day Gifts By Kenny Duncan,

Andis Global Educator – US Team Lead The best gift ideas are always measured by how often they are used and appreciated. Therefore, to make any dad happy, not only on Father’s Day but on any day of the year, he wants to look great. I’d recommend the following clipper, trimmer and shaver trio: the Andis® Cordless Envy® Li Clipper, Slimline® Pro Li Trimmer and the ProFoil® Lithium Titanium Foil Shaver. The Cordless Envy Li Clipper is an adjustable blade clipper that is lightweight yet powerful, making it easy to groom the hair on the face and head. It includes a full set of attachment combs to assist in cutting hair to the desired length, time after time. The lithium battery powering this adjustable blade tool has over two hours of run time and can be used with the cord as well! For all dad’s outlining, detailing and touch-up needs, look no further than the Slimline Pro Li Trimmer. This compact, powerful trimmer is reliable and effective for all hair types, and the blade can be zero gapped for a closer cut. This trimmer has a two-hour run time and comes equipped with attachment combs that allow it to perform light-duty clipping on beards. The Profoil Lithium Shaver is perfect for finishing fades and removing stubble for an ultra-close, smooth shave. The staggered hypo-allergenic foil heads provide the perfect cut, while the lithium battery provides 80 minutes of nonstop run time on a single charge. Cord/cordless operation also guarantees that you never have to stop shaving, even if your charge gets low. All three of these professional-grade tools would make any dad feel special but would also make great individual gifts too! For more information about Andis products, visit andis.com today.

A Natural State of Mind By Elayne McClaine

Consumers believe what’s natural is pure and organic. They also perceive that natural is healthy and exclusive. A consumer is concerned about products being 100% natural when they are seeking a remedy or therapy to repair or improve their hair or skin. The search for natural brands could be ongoing or occasional. Most retailers offer a natural section—a portion of the hair, skin or cosmetic area where customers can explore “natural “options. A natural product is a chemical compound or substance produced by a living organism – meaning it’s found in nature or manufactured without artificial ingredients. The term “natural” is not regulated at all. A product can be described as natural even if it contains as little as one percent naturally sourced, plantbased or mineral ingredients. Buying natural is a state of mind. To some consumers, it’s a mere use of healthy, straight-fromthe-farm graphics. Other consumers believe it is a luxurious, non-synthetic positioning of safety and performance. Yet, to many ethnic consumers, it is the key ingredient story that may include exotic oils and herbal infusions. To get your consumers into the natural state of mind, the key may be your in-store merchandising. Natural brands are those which appear to be premium with clean graphics. Natural brands typically feature an ingredient story that focuses on a solution.

of the largest beauty supply distributor, you can

always buy items by the piece and at great prices. For more information, call 800-361-0786 or visit

them at 4300 Northeast Expressway, Doraville, GA.

OTCs are noted for offering such remedies. To compete with mass retailers, a unique natural brand story might be beneficial. Merchandising some of the existing “natural” brands in a section or display could serve as a competitive strategy. Most mass and drug retailers employ this strategy in their ethnic sections. In-store focus on natural therapies may be the best defense. Draw consumers into the OTC environment for natural, organic or plant-based remedies that they will need to recover from other harsh chemicals. Remember: the OTC is the original retailer for the natural state of mind. Elayne McClaine has identified and developed emerging domestic and global trends in hair care, skincare and other consumer categories for such firms as Chesebrough-Pond’s, Revlon and Pharmacia (div. of Pfizer). Her expertise in therapeutic treatments for hair, skin and scalp led to the creation of the Women’s Institute for Fine and Thinning Hair, sponsored by Rogaine.
