A Call for the OTC Philanthropist!������������������60 by Phylencia “PT” Taylor Charity is a word that is used frequently and loosely, often defined as an immediate voluntary response to those in need. “Give-to-Charity” has become a “catch-phrase,” yet, philanthropy is a more long-term, strategic focus. It’s important to make this distinction and understand how OTCs can be instrumental philanthropists in their communities—urban America.

by Renae Tate We’ve all heard them and you might have even believed a few of them in the past. Skin lighteners are a hot topic in society today and lead to all sorts of debates and heated arguments on their safety and society’s glorification of lighter skin tones. Let’s debunk some of those rumors you might have heard.

Expert Advice by Adam Singleton

How to Make Your Business More

Socially Responsible

Social responsibility comes in many forms—and it’s something that many businesses are taking an increasing interest in. Based on the nature of certain industries, some companies might integrate social responsibility into their business model from the very start. However, other types of businesses might consider social responsibility at later stages of company establishment. No matter where your business lies with regard to implementing socially responsible practices, knowing that there are many means to do so—and acquainting yourself with those means—is a big step towards ultimately making a difference. Many companies, for instance, have taken an interest in environmental issues, adopting green practices and constantly looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly. This could entail anything from conserving resources in the workplace and offsetting carbon emissions, to providing support for environmental organizations. Regardless of the type of actions your company takes with regard to helping the environment, it’s undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to become more socially responsible. Helping charities is another way to increase your company’s social responsibility. Of course, there are various ways to get involved with a charity—

whether through donating money, or donating time as a volunteer. However, it’s a good idea to get involved beyond simply providing a charity with a check, as doing so will help your company learn and grow to a greater extent. Even if the primary source of your involvement is monetary, ensuring you’re involved in other ways will help you and your employees better understand a charitable organization. It’s also important that the charities you choose to work with are in line with the values of your company, customers and staff. Finally, supporting fair trade and ethically made goods is another socially responsible practice that your company can easily adopt. Whether encouraging your employees to support fair trade in their personal lives, or supporting fair trade practices with regard to securing your business resources, fair trade practices affect countless people across the world by providing a fair price for their goods, and helping improve the livelihood of communities. Ultimately, making a business more socially responsible opens up relationships and opportunities for a company, improves employee commitment and satisfaction, and attracts a greater number of customers—not to mention investors. Ethical businesses are sure to benefit in various ways through social responsibility, in addition to helping individuals, groups and communities around them.

How should you sell it?

This month’s focus is...

Multimasking! “Why tackle one skin issue when you can tackle them all at the same time and look like a warrior princess while doing it?” This is the question Ami Shvartzman, Director of Education for Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare poses, and we are wondering the same thing.

Use the tips Shvartzman gives below to increase your facial mask sales by encouraging customers to use multiple mask formulations at once on different parts of their face “Step 1: T-Zone Clay masks are perfect to use for a combination/oily T-Zone area. They work to balance and detoxify the skin, while refining skin’s texture and smoothing larger pores. Step 2: Forehead and Cheeks The forehead and cheeks are an area of the face that can be most affected by the damaging rays of the sun and free radicals. Try revitalizing masks to provide firming, brightening and nourishing treatment to the face. Step 3: Lips The lips are an area most often neglected when it comes to skincare. Don’t leave them out! Lip masks are great for healing dry, dehydrated and damaged lips. Step 4: The Neck The neck can unfortunately be one of the most obvious indicators of age. Counter this by giving the neck all of the loving care it needs with an anti-aging mask. Encouraging hydration and firming is essential!”

어떻게 판매할 것인가? 이 달의 판매 초점은 ...


“피부에 한 가지 문제가 생기면 왜 당신은 전체 얼굴을 동시에 해결하려고 달려드는가?” 이것은 Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare의 교육 디렉터인 Ami Shvartzman의 질문이며, 우리도 이것이 궁금하다.

Shvartzman이 아래에 제시하는 팁을 사용하면 소비자들이 얼굴의 각각 다른 부위에 적합한 기능의 멀티 마스크를 한 번에 사용할 수 있도록 장려함으로써 페이스 마스크 판매를 증가시킬 수가 있다. 1단계: T-Zone 클레이 마스크는 복합/ 지성 T존 부위에 사용하는데 이상적이다. 이것은 피부의 균형을 맞추고 독소를 제거하며, 피부의 질감을 개선하고 큰 모공을 누그러뜨린다. 2 단계: 이마와 볼 이마와 볼은 자외선이나 활성 산소로 인한 손상에 가장 영향을 크게 받을 수 있는 얼굴 부위이다. 탄력과 브라이트닝, 영양 공급을 위해 리바이탈라이징 (활력 공급) 마스크를 사용하라. 3 단계: 입술 입술은 스킨 케어에서 자주 소홀해지는 부위이다. 그대로 내버려 두지 말라! 입술 마스크는 건조하고 수분이 부족하며 손상된 입술에 아주 효과적이다. 4 단계: 목 목은 불행히도 나이를 나타내는 가장 확실한 부위 중 하나이다. 안티 에이징 마스크를 비롯해 다양한 방법으로 목을 관리하라. 수분과 탄력 증강은 필수적이다!”

Traditionally Made Jamaican ( B l a c k )

C astor O il A ids A fro H air G rowth Afro hair has a tendency to be dry, which is exacerbated by a structure that can make it difficult for substances to properly penetrate both the scalp and the ends of the hair. Most commercial hair products are bad for Black Afro hair as they contain petroleum-based polymers, silicones, synthetic chemicals and artificial colours that can cause scalp problems and hair loss Jamaican Castor Oil is known to cleanse toxins from the scalp, eliminate dry flakes, nourish and thicken the hair, stimulate hair growth, moisturize dry and damaged hair, and protect both hair and scalp from infections which hamper hair growth. Authentic traditionally made Jamaican Castor Oil is made using roasted Castor beans prior to extraction; this creates a natural occurring activated charcoal. For centuries natural charcoal has been used for the treatment of ailments and injuries. It is the safest means of removing toxins from the body. The Omega-9 fatty acids in traditionally made Jamaican Castor Oil will nourish the hair and prevent the scalp from drying. The anti-bacterial and anti-fungicidal properties of Ricinoleic Acid contained in traditionally made Jamaican Castor Oil will protect the scalp and hair from infections thus stimulating healthy hair growth. The addition of the word “Black” is a new phenomenon. Traditionally made Jamaican Castor Oil has always been darker than “refined” Castor Oil from other regions of the world. Refined Castor Oils have been boiled to extremely high temperatures and then chilled to very low temperatures and bleached. This makes those oils very thin, transparent, and odourless, and of course strips them of most of their natural goodness. Jamaican Black Castor Oil can help with many afro hair care needs: As a daily scalp massage to stimulate hair growth and thicken thinning hair Massage onto scalp regularly paying particular attention to thinning/balding areas. Massaging your scalp promotes hair growth due to the increased blood flow to the hair follicles. Using Jamaican Castor Oil to stimulate circulation increases the benefit of the massage, as it works with the massage to supply your hair follicles with the nourishment they need. Nourished follicles promote and produce better hair growth. Ultimately, for a scalp massage to be really effective, it needs to be done on a daily basis with at least one massage per week, lasing for 10 minutes. Results will be noticeable within 3 months.

As a frequent use scalp massage treatment to eliminate dry flakes - Massage onto scalp using the tips of your fingers in a circular movement to cleanse and nourish the scalp, and remove toxins. This increases blood flow to the scalp. It also helps clear any blocked pores, and prevents the hair from becoming too dry, whilst strengthening the hair roots. As a daily sealant to retain moisture - Apply to hair following a moisturizer paying particular attention to ends of hair, which are the oldest and therefore tend to be the most dry and fragile. As a hot oil treatment to restore lost moisture to dry hair - After shampooing apply warm oil, leave on for 30 minutes with or without heat, then rinse. Jamaican Black Castor Oil can also be added to your favorite deep conditioner for added moisturizing power. As a pre-shave treatment to soften ingrown hairs and prevent razor bumps - Rub warm oil onto face and leave on for five minutes then continue with a normal shaving routine. On your scalp before getting a chemical relaxer - Apply to scalp using a tint brush prior to relaxer application in order to protect sensitive scalps from chemical relaxer burns. On your regrowth to stretch chemical relaxer frequency - Apply frequently to new growth to make hair softer thereby reducing tension and minimizing hair breakage when combing mid-lengths and ends. As a post-conditioner styling oil whilst hair is still wet - Use prior to blow or air drying hair. When looking for authentic Jamaican Black Castor Oil, it is always best to purchase one that has actually been processed in Jamaica!

The Myths Surrounding

Skin Lighteners 피부 미백제를 둘러싼 근거없는 믿음들 We’ve all heard them and you might have even believed a few of them in the past. Skin lighteners are a hot topic in society today and lead to all sorts of debates and heated arguments on their safety and society’s glorification of lighter skin tones. However, there are many different facets of why people use lighteners and the different types of ingredients used. Often, however, they are all lumped into one category, which gives many a disproportioned view of this sector of the skincare industry. Let’s debunk some of those rumors you might have heard: 1. People who use skin lighteners have no self confidence and believe white skin is better. For many people who use skin-lightening products, this statement could not be farther from the truth. Darker skin tones often develop dark spots, scars and discolorations from pregnancy, acne, medication or the sun that are noticeably darker than their regular skin tone. Lighter skin tones have less melanin in their skin and thus these darker patches do not develop as prominently. For this reason, many with darker skin turn to skin lightening ingredients to enhance their complexion and blend those discolorations with their natural skin tone. There are those select few that do look to lighten their overall complexion in hopes of being a lighter shade. However, this trend has been going on for centuries as those who stayed indoors were considered higher class and those that had to work in the sun were often poor. However, it is hard to judge or put down those that still hold these views and wish to lighten their skin because of it. Instead of putting down these people we should be working on societies’ representation of ethnic diversity to ensure that new generations are proud of their skin. Overall, we should not lump all those who use skin

우리 모두는 그것을 들어봤고, 당신은 지난날 그것들 중 몇 가지를 믿었을 수도 있다. 피부 미백제는 현

재 사회에서 아주 관심이 큰 주제이며, 그것의 안정성과 밝은 피부톤에 관한 사회적 찬양에 있어서 모든 종류의 가열된 논쟁을 이끌어내고 있다. 그러나, 사람들이 미백제를 사용하는 이유는 아주 다양하며, 사 용되는 성분의 형태 또한 여러 가지이다. 그러나 종종, 이것은 하나의 범주에 들어가는데, 그것은 스킨

케어 산업의 이 분야에 관한 불균형적인 견해를 제공한다는 것이다. 당신도 들어 본 적 있는 몇 가지 소 문들의 정체를 폭로해보자:

1. 피부 미백제를 사용하는 사람들은 자신감이 없으며 하얀 피부가 더욱 낫다고 믿는다.

피부 미백제를 사용하는 많은 사람들에게, 이런 얘기는 진실이 아니다. 진한 피부톤은 종종 임신이나 여 드름, 약물 복용 혹은 자외선으로 인해 다크 스팟, 흉터, 색소 침착 등이 일반적인 그들의 피부 색깔보

다 현저하게 진해지게 된다. 밝은 피부톤은 피부 내의 멜라닌 색소 함량이 낮기 때문에, 이런 진한 부분 들이 눈에 띄게 짙어지지는 않는 것이다. 이런 이유에서, 진한 피부색을 가진 사람들은 그들의 안색을 좋게 하고 그들의 자연적인 피부색과 색소가 침착된 부위를 섞이게 하기 위해서 피부 미백 제제를 찾 게 되는 것이다.

좀 더 밝은 피부 톤이 되기를 바라면서 그들의 전체적인 안색을 밝게 보이는 몇 가지 선택들이 있다.

그러나, 실내에서 머무르는 사람들이 더 높은 계급으로 간주되고 햇빛 아래서 일해야만 했던 사람들은 흔히 가난했던 것처럼, 이런 트랜드는 수세기 동안 있어 왔다. 하지만, 이러한 견해를 아직도 유지하고

이런 이유 때문에 자신의 피부를 밝게 하려는 사람들을 판단하거나 깎아 내리기는 힘들다. 이런 사람들 을 깎아 내리는 대신에 우리는 새로운 세대들이 자신의 피부색에 자부심을 갖도록 인종적 다양성을 사

K-t-K lighteners as people that are not confident in their darker skin tone. 2. Hydroquinone is unsafe and has horrible side effects. Hydroquinone is actually the only FDA approved ingredient to lighten skin discolorations. The FDA has also regulated the ingredient so that no more than 2% is available in over the counter products. However, higher concentrations can still be obtained by a doctor’s prescription. The reason hydroquinone received such as bad rap is due to people using the ingredient irresponsibly. An important thing to remember is that hydroquinone does make one’s skin sensitive to the sun. Therefore it is important to use sunscreen over the product or use a formulation already containing sunscreen such as Clear Essence Medicated Fade Crème with SPF 15. Used appropriately in a safe concentration and in conjunction with sunscreen, there is no harm in the ingredient. However, for those that are still worried, there are plenty of natural skin lightening ingredients such as Vitamin C, Alpha Hydroxy Acid and Kojic Acid. 3. Once I achieve the skin complexion I want I can stop using skin lighteners. Sadly, no. We’ve already covered wearing sunscreen. You will need to apply an SPF of at least 15 daily to ensure that the skin does not re-darken. But even so, darker skin types are naturally prone to developing dark spots or scars from any disruption to the skin. Unless you stay in a plastic bubble for the rest of your life and are lucky to never get another pimple, you most likely will have to deal with skin lighteners again if you wish to keep your skin tone even and free of any discolorations. But don’t fret; there are many options and products to assist in your skin care goals thanks to the beauty industry and companies formulating products for darker skin tones.

Knowledge to Know by Dr. Edward Tony Lloneau


Afro American Customers’ Needs and Why 아프리카계 미국인 소비자들의 요구를 더욱 잘 이해하는 방법과 이유 In previous articles, I attempted to illustrate how and why the hair and skin care requirements are different for most people of Afro decent. Although there are other cultures with dark skin, their needs still differ from Afro Americans due primarily to climatic conditions in their native countries where the race originated. Although they no longer live in those regions, or were born there for several generations, through heredity the original genes are passed on. The purpose of this article is to instill understanding as to why the need is different and how to service this need with understanding and knowledge. The importance of this is twofold: 1. There are at least 1/3 more Black Cosmetologists than Caucasians in proportion to their numbers. 2. Blacks are only about 11% of the total population in this country, yet they consume over 30% of all hair care products and professional hair services rendered in the United States. Why is a Black baby born with straight or wavy hair and a few months later it is kinky? The answer to this is simple: the excessive amount of bonds in the cortex and medulla is partly the cause of kinky or curly hair, causing the hair to retract like a stretched rubber band when released. The cuticle layer backs up on each other as a result of the excessive amount of bonds in the cortex and medulla, resulting in Afro hair having up to twice as many overlapping cuticle layers as Caucasian straight hair. This causes the cuticle scales (they are called scales because they resemble the overlapping scales of a fish) to stack 38

이전 기사에서, 나는 헤어와 스킨 케어 요구 사항이 대부분의 품위 있는 흑인들에 따라 각기 다른 이유

와 방법에 관해 설명하려 했다. 물론, 짙은 피부색을 가진 다른 문화권의 인종들도 있지만, 그들의 요구

는 여전히 아프리카계 미국인들과는 다르다. 왜냐하면 그들 인종이 유래된 본국의 기후 조건이 기본적

으로 다르기 때문이다. 비록 그들은 수 세대에 걸쳐 더 이상 자신들의 본국에 거주하거나 태어나지는 않 아도, 근본 유전자는 전해 내려 오기 때문이다. 이 기사의 목적은 그들의 요구가 다른 이유를 이해하고

그 이해와 지식을 바탕으로 그들에게 맞는 서비스를 제공하는 방법을 알려주기 위함이다. 이것의 중요 성은 두 가지이다:

1. 흑인 미용사들의 수가 백인보다 인종에 비례하여 1/3 이상 더 많다.

2. 흑인들은 미국 전체 인구의 11%정도이지만, 그들은 미국 내 모든 헤어 케어 제품과 전문

헤어 서비스의 30% 이상을 소비한다.

왜 흑인 아기들은 직모나 웨이브 헤어로 태어나서 몇 달 후에 심한 곱슬이 되는가?

대답은 간단하다: 피질과 수질의 과도한 결합이 부분적으로 심한 곱슬이나 곱슬머리의 원인이 된다, 고 무줄을 길게 잡아 당겼다가 놓았을 때처럼 모발이 다시 수축되기 때문이다. 표피층은 피질과 수질에서 발생하는 과도한 양의 결합으로 서로를 지지하게 되고, 결과적으로 흑인들의 모발은 백인들의 직모보 다 큐티클층이 2배 이상 많이 겹쳐지게 된다. 이것은 큐티클 스케일(물고기의 비늘처럼 겹쳐져있어서

SCALES이라 부른다)이 서로 단단하게 쌓여 유지되게 한다. 이것이 바로 흑인들의 모발이 곱슬하게 되

K-t-K tightly against each other and flair out. This is the reason for the kinky appearance of Afro hair. Pressing, curling and flat ironing forces the flared cuticles flat against the hair shaft to create the appearance of being straight. When a Black baby is born, the bonding in the cortex and medulla layer of the hair shaft has not yet been formed. Sometimes it takes up to a year and half for the bonds to become apparent, thereby forming hair’s permanent structure and texture. You cannot train a baby’s hair to stay baby hair. Hair reaches full maturity about the same time that the permanent teeth come in (at approximately 7 1/2 years old); this is the earliest that a chemical service can be performed on a child, however the longer you put this off the better. Why do many Black children and adults not have hair on the temple area? Many people who suffer this malady cannot remember ever having hair on the temple, so it is passed off as being hereditary and/or one of the traits of being Black. Actually this situation is caused by people who unknowingly and with good intentions attempt to groom the hair when the person was an infant. As mentioned in the last segment explaining why a Black baby is born with straight or wavy hair, this type of hair structure may not be comparable to that of the infant’s parents who may have extremely curly or kinky hair. Realizing this, the mother, big sister, babysitter, etc., will start to smooth the hair from the forehead back by tying it down with rubber bands, barrettes, or tight braiding that pulls the hair and roots out of the scalp permanently. They may also cake it with heavy oils in an attempt to train the hair to stay straight or wavy. This is a futile practice because it is impossible to train baby hair to stay baby hair. Manipulation of the hair as described above causes a great deal of the papilla (the seed and root of the hair shaft) to become permanently destroyed. It is destroyed by pulling and crushing of the tender Papilla at that young age; it is often mashed between the scalp and skull due to the pressure applied during this futile training attempt, or is pulled out of the scalp. What results is permanent baldness in the temple area, high foreheads, thinning hair and bald spots throughout the rest of the scalp that lasts a lifetime. None of these conditions are natural or inherent for the most part. They were caused unintentionally by people who thought they were doing the right thing on behalf of the child. Also, kinky hair is flat hair that grows from a somewhat flat follicle. By manipulation of the hair as just described you are rendering the follicle even flatter, resulting in even kinkier hair when it matures than it would have been if simply left alone. Normal grooming and care is fine, but do not try to force it to be what it is not. What is bad hair? It is very irritating to me to hear Black people referring to their natural “Afro” hair as being “bad hair.” People of color have enough put downs to deal with without adding another self-imposed one. The only “bad hair” that exists is hair that leaves the head involuntarily regardless of what grade it is. Actually, Afro hair is the strongest, most impenetrable hair there is. Is Afro hair weaker than Caucasian straight hair as stated in most textbooks? No! It is only considered to be weaker after it has been damaged by pressing, hot curling, relaxing, tinting, bleaching, back combing, etc. But, when Afro hair that is in its natural state is compared to straight natural hair, Afro hair is up to three times stronger. This is why Afro hair can be rolled with tension without breaking when permanently curling. It can also be processed up to three times longer, has up to five times the tinsel strength, (the ability to stretch when wet before breaking), and is much more difficult to control and manage. Furthermore, if a relaxer that was designed for Afro hair was applied to Caucasian straight hair; it would destroy the hair in less than five minutes, but on virgin Afro hair it would take 15-20 minutes to relax the hair as intended without damage. If a pressing comb heated to the proper temperature to do its intended purpose on virgin Afro hair was applied to Caucasian straight hair, it would burn and destroy the hair. Afro hair is assumed to be weaker because it does not appear to grow as long; this is because of the exceptional curliness of this hair, creating the illusion of being short. Afro hair grows at the same rate as any other hair type, but breaks off at the ends as a result of relaxing, harsh combing or brushing and excessive heat (i.e. pressing combs and curling irons). When Afro hair is braided or worn in dread locks you can realize the growth being the same as any other types of hair.

는 이유이다. 프레싱, 컬링, 플랫 아이언 등은 모발을 스트레이트하게 만들기 위해서 자연적으로 주

름이 잡힌 큐티클을 강제적으로 평평하게 만드는 것이다. 흑인 아기가 태어날 때, 모간에 있는 피질 과 수질층의 결합은 아직 형성되지 않은 상태이다. 때때로 이러한 결합이 나타나서 영구적인 모발

의 구조와 질감을 형성할 때까지는 1년 반 정도가 걸린다. 아기의 모발이 그대로 유지되게 할 수는

없다. 모발은 영구치아가 나오는 것(정확히 7.5세)과 같은 시기에 완전히 성숙하게 된다; 화학적 손 질을 아이들에게 적용할 수 있는 가장 이른 시기가 바로 이 때이지만, 가능하면 더욱 오래 동안 기 다리는 것이 좋다.

왜 많은 흑인 어린이와 성인들은 관자놀이 부위에 모발이 없을까?

이 문제로 고민하는 많은 사람들은 관자놀이 부위에 모발이 있었던 것도 기억할 수가 없다, 그래서 이것은 흑인들의 특성 중 하나이거나 유전으로 여겨진다. 사실상 이런 상황은 신생아 시기에 특별

한 지식이 없는 채 모발을 손질하기 때문이기도 하다. 흑인 아기들이 직모나 웨이브가 있는 모발로 태어나는 이유를 설명한 마지막 부분에서 언급한 바와 같이, 이런 유형의 모발 구조는 심하게 곱슬

머리인 부모의 모발과는 비교되질 않는다. 이것을 인식하고, 엄마나 큰 언니들, 아기를 돌보는 사람 들은 고무줄이나 바렛 혹은 단단하게 머리를 땋아서 이마부분의 모발을 부드럽게 만들게 되는데,

이 과정에서 모발이 당겨져서 모근이 두피 밖으로 영구적으로 나오게 된다. 또한 직모나 약간의 웨 이브 상태인 아기 모발을 그대로 유지하려고 많은 양의 오일을 발라 모발을 길들이려고 한다. 아기 의 모발 상태를 유지하는 것은 불가능한 일이므로 이것은 소용없는 일이다.

위에서 설명한 것처럼 모발을 조작하는 것은 다량의 파필라(모발의 씨앗과 뿌리)가 영

구적으로 파괴되는 것을 유발한다. 어린 시기에 부드러운 파필라를 밀어 넣고 잡아 당김으로 인해 파괴되는 것이다. 이런 소용없는 시도를 하는 동안 압력이 가해지거나 두피를 잡아 당기기 때문에

두피와 두개골 사이가 종종 일그러진다. 결과적으로 남은 평생을 관자놀이 주변이나 이마 윗부분이 영구적인 대머리 상태로 살거나, 두피 이곳 저곳에 머리숱이 적거나 탈모 자국이 생기게 된다.

이런 상황 중 어느 것도 대부분 자연적이거나 본래의 것이 아니다. 그것은 아이들에게 옳은 일을 한 다고 생각하는 사람들에 의해 의도치 않게 야기된 문제들이다. 또한, 곱슬 머리는 어느 정도는 평평

한 모낭에서부터 자라는 고른 모발이다. 설명한 것처럼 모발을 조작함으로써 모낭을 더욱 평평하게 만들려는 것은, 결과적으로 다 자랐을 때는 그대로 두었을 때보다 더욱 심한 곱슬머리를 초래한다. 일반적인 정리와 관리는 괜찮지만, 아닌 것을 위해서 강제적으로 손질해서는 안 된다. 나쁜 모발은 무엇인가?

흑인들이 자신의 선천적인”흑인”모발을 “나쁜 모발”이라고 언급하는 것이 내겐 아주 불편하게 들

린다. 유색인종들은 자진하지 않아도 충분히 많은 얘기들을 듣고 있다. “나쁜 모발”이라고 할 수 있 는 유일한 것은 상태에 상관없이 부지불식간에 두피를 떠나는 모발이다. 흑인 모발은 가장 강하고 뚫고 들어가기 힘든 모발이다.

대부분의 책에서 언급한 바와 같이 흑인의 모발이 백인의 직모 보다 더 약한가?

그렇지 않다! 프레싱이나 핫 컬링, 릴렉싱, 염색이나 표백, 백 코밍(머리에 불룩함을 보이게 할 목적

으로 빗으로 모발을 반대 방향으로 빗는 것) 등으로 손상이 되었을 때만 약해지는 것으로 간주된다. 그러나, 흑인의 모발이 자연 상태 그대로일 때는 선천적인 직모와 비교될 수가 있는데, 이때는 흑

인의 모발이 3배까지 더 강하다. 이것은 흑인들의 모발은 영구적인 컬링을 할 때 부서짐 없이 압력

을 줘서 말리기 때문이다. 또한 3배 정도 오랜 시간 손질할 수가 있으며, TINSEL STRENGTH(젖었

을 때 부서지기 전까지 늘어나는 능력)는 5배 정도 강해서, 관리하기가 훨씬 어렵다. 또한, 흑인 모발 을 위해 설계된 릴렉서를 백인들의 직모에 사용할 경우, 5분 안에 모발이 손상될 것이다. 그러나 순

수한 흑인 모발의 경우 손상을 주지 않는 범위 내에서 모발에 릴렉서를 사용하기 위해서는 15-20분 정도가 소요된다. 흑인 모발에 사용할 목적으로 적정 온도로 가열한 프레싱 콤을 백인의 직모에 사 용하면, 모발은 타거나 손상된다.

흑인 모발은 길게 자라는 것처럼 보이지 않기 때문에 약한 것으로 간주된다. 이것은 모

발의 아주 특출한 곱슬거림으로 인해 모발이 짧아 보이는 착시 현상 때문이다. 흑인 모발은 다른 타

입의 모발과 같은 비율로 자란다, 그러나 릴렉싱이나 거친 빗질 혹은 과도한 열(프레싱 콤이나 컬링 아이언 등)의 결과로 부서지게 된다. 흑인 모발을 땋거나 드래드 락을 쓸 경우, 그들의 모발이 다른 타입의 모발과 같은 비율로 자란다는 것을 알 수가 있다.

The Master Game

Caring More in Business

마스터 게임

기 쓰 경 신 욱 더 에 스 니 즈 비


here once was a man named DeRopp who wrote a book titled “The Master Game.” No need to discuss his book or his philosophy here, other than to say it had to do with the shaping of one’s life and options through a lens few of us normal people have ever looked through before. It brings to mind a question many people have asked me over the years about the entrepreneurial genius of Steve Jobs: What did he know that the rest of us did not? My answer was simply that Jobs didn’t actually know more than the rest of us; he simply cared more. I believe that’s the heart of choice; caring more. Not just doing more, and certainly not just doing something different than what you’re doing today. “Caring More” So, the subject then becomes, what does “caring more” mean? What does it look like and how does it reveal itself, especially at your age and mine? In my work with entrepreneurs and small business owners, caring more is a huge conversation, in that most of my clients and students over the years were confused about what it meant and how it related to what they were doing in their work. They actually believed they cared, even when it was obvious as we pursued the conversation that they didn’t. Yes, they cared about the money. To live without it would certainly throw a monkey wrench into their lives. So, in one sense they cared about making money, just as we all do. But, Steve Jobs didn’t! Think about it. Here was a guy who dropped out of college in his first year, wandered off to India on a spiritual hippy quest that seriously disappointed him, took an engineering job for which he was hopelessly unsuited, and then started his own company—Apple—in his father’s garage, without any hope of succeeding, if you measure success by a financially robust outcome. In short, Jobs didn’t care about the money. He cared about his dream. And his dream was so outrageously incongruent with what was going on in the world of his time as to be, on the face of it, absurd. So caring, as we’re beginning to look at it, has nothing to do with any of us personally—neither DeRopp nor Jobs cared about themselves personally— it has to do with the impersonal. It has to do with something huge outside of ourselves. It has to do with someone else. And it also has to do with the ineffable. (Merriam-Webster defines ineffable as what is “too great, powerful, beautiful, etc., to be described or expressed.”). What is the ineffable? To DeRopp it was the product of the Master Game. To Jobs it was the product of Apple. Not the computer, but the product of the computer, the profound impact the Mac would have on the lives of his customers, and, then through his customers, the unexpected outcome for the world. Everything Jobs did had to do with the ineffable, which couldn’t be described perfectly (thus the ineffable). But he could experience it inside, as a picture that appeared to him in his imagination, in his unconscious, in his visual, emotional, functional and financial mind.

THE MASTER GAME” 이라는 제목의 책을 쓴 DEROPP라는 사람이 있었다. 우리 보통

사람들이 이전에 보았던 몇 가지 렌즈를 통해 사람의 인생과 옵션의 형성에 관해 얘기하 는 것 외에, 여기서 그의 책이나 철학에 관해 논할 필요는 없다.

이것은 많은 사람들이 수년간 내게 천재 기업가 스티브 잡스에 관해 질문하던 것을

떠올리게 한다. 그는 우리가 알지 못하는 무엇을 알고 있었나요? JOBS가 우리보다 실제로 더 아는 것은 아니라고 나는 간단히 답했다. 그는 단지 더 신경을 썼을 뿐이다.

나는 그것이 선택의 중심이라고 믿는다. 더욱 신경을 쓰는 것. 단지 무엇인가를 더

하는 것이 아니다, 단지 오늘 당신이 하고 있는 일과 다른 무엇인가를 하는 것은 분명히 아니다. “더 신경쓰기”

자, 주제는 “더 신경 쓴다는 것”의 의미가 무엇이냐는 것이다. 그것은 어떤 모습이고, 특히 당신 의 나이와 당신의 것들에서 어떻게 스스로 드러나는가?

대기업이나 중소기업 소유주들과 내가 일을 하면서, 더 신경 쓴다는 것은 대화를

아주 많이 나누는 것인데, 수년간 내 고객들과 학생들의 대부분은 그것이 무슨 뜻이며 그들이

하고 있는 일과 무슨 관련이 있는지 혼돈스러워했다. 그들은 실제로 자신들은 더 신경을 쓴다고 믿고 있었다, 심지어 우리가 대화를 지속할 때 그들이 신경을 쓰지 않았음이 분명한데도 말이 다.

그렇다, 그들은 돈에 대해 신경을 썼다. 돈이 없이 사는 것은 분명히 그들의 삶에

장애물을 던지는 것이다. 그래서, 어떤 의미에서 그들은 돈을 버는 것에 신경을 썼고, 그것은 우 리 모두 마찬가지이다. 그러나, 스티브 잡스는 그렇지 않았다!

생각해보라. 여기 대학 첫 해에 학교를 중퇴한 사람이 있다, 심각하게 스스로에게 실망하여 정

신적인 히피 탐구의 태도로 인도를 떠돌았고, 절망적으로 자신에게는 어울리지 않는 엔지니어 링 일을 했으며, 그 다음으로 자신의 회사인 –APPLE - 을 시작했다. 아버지 차고에서, 성공에 대한 어떤 희망도 없이 말이다 (성공을 제정적인 성과로만 생각했을 때의 성공의 의미).

즉, JOBS는 돈에 대해 신경 쓰지 않았다. 그는 자신의 꿈에 신경 썼다. 그리고 그

의 꿈은 그가 살고 있는 시간, 그가 직면하는 세상에서 일어나는 것들과는 너무도 맞지 않는 것 이었다, 터무니없었다.

우리가 그것을 보기 시작하면서, 신경을 쓴다는 것은 우리 중 누구와도 개인적으로

는 관련이 없다 - DEROPP도 JOBS도 그들 스스로를 개인적으로 신경 쓰지는 않았다. – 그것 은 IMPERSONAL(특정 개인과 상관없는)과 관련이 있다. 그것은 우리 자신 외부의 거대한 무

언가와 연관이 있다. 그것은 누군가 다른 사람과 관련이 있다. 그리고 그것은 또한 말로 표현할 수 없는 것과 관련이 있다. (MERRIAM- WEBSTER는 INEFFABLE을 “너무도 크고, 강력한, 아 름다워서, 혹은 기타 등등의 이유로 설명하거나 표현하기 힘든 것”으로 정의한다.) 형언할 수 없는 것은 무엇일까?

DEROPP에게 그것은THE MASTER GAME의 제작이었다. JOBS에게 그것은 APPLE을 만든

것이다. 컴퓨터가 아니라, 컴퓨터를 만들고, MAC이 그의 고객들의 삶에 끼친 엄청난 영향, 그리 고 그의 고객들을 통해, 세상을 위한 예상치 못한 결과.

그가 한 모든 것은 완벽하게 설명될 수 없는(따라서 말로 설명할 수 없는), 형언할

수 없는 것과 관련이 있다. 그러나 그는 그의 상상 속에, 그의 무의식 속에, 그의 시각적, 정서

적, 기능적, 재정적 마인드 속에 나타난 그림으로서 그것의 내면을 체험할 수 있었다. (그렇다.

APPLE은 금융 엔진일 뿐 아니라, 혁신적인 엔진이기도 했다 – 우리 시대의 혁신적인 엔진). 그

러한 비전이 JOBS와 그의 회사, 그리고 그가 매료시킨 모든 사람들이 세상을 완벽히 바꾸기 위 해 누그러지지 않는 결정을 향해 전진할 수 있도록 한 것이다.

우리 모두가 그것에 대해 할 수 있는 말은 “와우!” 이다. 우리의 관점에서 JOBS가

한 것, DEROPP이 쓴 것 그리고 그가 살아온 방법은 우리 중 누군가 할 수 있는 그 이상으로 너

Business Tips innovative engine—the innovative engine of our time.) That vision is what drove Jobs and his company, and all of the people he attracted, to be a force moving forward with unabated determination to completely transform the world. All one can say about that is, “Wow!” From our perspective what Jobs did, and what DeRopp wrote about and how he lived are far more ambitious than what any of us would do, so why even put it into our consciousness here? To feel guilty? To feel overwhelmed? To feel diminished or minimalized? No, not at all. The point is to feel what it means when I say, “Steve Jobs didn’t know any more than the rest of us do, he simply cared more.” Because each of us has the ability to feel more, to care more, to discover more, than we’ve ever felt, cared about or discovered before. If that’s true (and at age 79, working as I am on the creation of an enterprise seemingly impossible for me to pursue, I know that it is true) then what in the world do we do about it? That’s the question I wanted to pose to you: What DO you care about? And why? And what difference will it make to the world? What is your ineffable? How does it show up in your mind, in your imagination, in your heart, in your spirit? What is your Apple?

위해서? 작고 보잘것없는 느낌을 가 지려고?

How Do You Handle Life’s Detours? rt with Wise Decisions Can Sta Noticing Silver Linings

인생의 역경에 어떻게 대응하는가?

현명한 결정은 밝은 희망과 함께 시작할 수 있다.


Here are a few basic steps to dealing with life’s detours:

여기, 인생의 역경을 처리하는 몇 가지 기본적인 단계들이 있다:

nasty accident; a bad break-up; a new, obsessive habit; a big move to a new town; health problems experienced by you or a loved one— these are some of the many things that can turn your life upside down. These are life’s detours that you don’t expect. Could there be a good way to respond to such turns in life? Is it honest to “look on the bright side?” Isn’t the root feeling hurt? I don’t think most people could ask you to deny your feelings, but you don’t have to be led by the nose by feelings, which have a primary characteristic of being temporary. Life is change—it’s axiomatic. Most of us accept this on an intellectual, abstract basis. But when it comes to experiencing change, we often resist it. Fear of change causes immense yet unnecessary suffering. Personal growth and maturity are based largely on how you respond to life’s unexpected detours.

• Ask yourself about opportunity. We don’t like most of life’s detours because they force us out of our comfort zone. New duties at work or a request from a spouse may not only pique our defenses but also make us wonder, “Can I do this?” Fear and anxiety may push us to focus on our weaknesses and convince us of what we cannot do. When we make a simple shift in mentality, however, we can empower the beginning of personal growth by seeing unprecedented challenges as opportunities. • Are you willing to change?

Hair Scandals in the Work Place

As we anticipate the fall season premiere of the hit television series “Scandal,” we cross our fingers that the powerful, leading, black, female character Olivia Pope uses her power—not to fix a scandalous situation or lure her leading man in to save her, but to make a hair statement that needs to be made amidst a flurry of, unfortunately, real hair controversies in the work place. Women around the world are being written up, sometimes even being considered ineligible for employment because employers seem to think they have the right to tell a woman how she can and cannot style her hair—including whether it can be worn naturally or not. According to TIME Magazine, some military branches including the Army, Air Force and Navy, have recognized that women of color should be able to wear traditional hairstyles without their level of professionalism being affected since 2014. But why is it that to this day, women are being given written notices about their natural curls and are being told they need to reconsider their natural hairstyles before beginning a new position? Why is it that Olivia Pope, the fixer of all scandals, only wears her natural hair when she is secluded, but never in front of the press or a client? The issue in itself is not that wearing natural hair versus styled or relaxed hair is better or the right thing to do, but that women should have the right to make that decision on their own, without their competency at work being questioned. Gold ’N Hot has been dedicated to hair diversity for over 50 years, which is why we offer a number of products to help you get through your work week, regardless of which way YOU decide to wear your hair. For women who have chosen to embrace their natural curls, we offer a variety of hard hat dryers with various heat and speed settings to help set any hairstyle. Additionally, our Gold ’N Hot Professional Conditioning Heat Cap is not only compact, but has 3 heat settings and is thermostatically controlled to set any moisturizing or conditioning treatments to help keep your natural curls shiny, soft and bouncy.

However, some women like to change up their look occasionally or on an everyday basis. Gold ’N Hot tools are made specifically to retexturize any hair in its natural state. The Gold ’N Hot 1” and 2” Professional Ceramic Straightening Irons heat up to 450°F with a rheostat temperature control to lower the temperature to adjust to any hair type. A great alternative for women who want to add a little definition to their natural look is the Gold ’N Hot 3/8” 24K Gold Professional Spring Iron. With an impressive high heat of up to 500°F, this curling iron can quickly touch up your everyday natural look in seconds. These irons are great for hair that is styled often because the ceramic plates distribute heat evenly for fast styling and seal in moisture—leaving your hair shiny, silky-soft and frizz-free with minimal damage. Throughout the seasons, we have been able to catch more and more screen time of Olivia’s natural tresses in sporadic scenes of “Scandal,” which gives us hope that the leading woman is making her way to making her public debut with natural locks. It’s time for THE fixer to prove once and for all that she can fix any scandal, regardless of the way her tresses bounce. Any woman can get a job done just as well—with or without a head full of luscious locks!

Belson Products is dedicated to producing products that give you the power to get professional results you desire from the comfort of your own home. Gold ’N Hot is currently looking for excited new individuals who are eager to give us feedback on our products and increase brand awareness.

Skin Care


A History of Success

Few American-made brands can claim a history and heritage that predates women’s suffrage or the establishment of the Brooklyn Bridge. Fewer still are brands that remain tried-and-true staples available in the mass market today. Palmer’s Skin Success is one such brand. Established in 1840, the company was first headquartered in New York City until the 1960s when it was relocated to New Jersey, where it is currently headquartered today. Palmer’s Skin Success Ointment was the first product marketed back in the 1800s and was an all-purpose skin treatment, advertised for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, blemishes and burns. Nearly two centuries later, Palmer’s Skin Success is an established brand known for bringing affordable and efficacious tone-correcting products to consumers. Coinciding with its 175th anniversary the brand was relaunched this year with new packaging and formulations that employ the most effective pigmentperfecting ingredients for fading unwanted discoloration. Now with the addition of Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, this powerhouse anti-aging ingredient does everything from improving fine lines, boosting collagen, improving skin’s texture and increasing cell turnover to help even out skin discoloration. While the packs have become fancier and the formulas more cutting edge, the one thing that hasn’t changed over the years is that Palmer’s Skin Success offers a complete regimen of skincare formulations with the unconditional guarantee of beautiful, radiant skin. So why is skin discoloration a top skin care concern? Studies have revealed that more than wrinkles or loss of firmness, the first visible sign of aging is discoloration such as age spots or dark spots. There are a variety of factors that contribute to the development of discoloration and certainly genetics plays an important role. Discoloration, also referred to sometimes as hyperpigmentation, can be caused by environmental triggers, most commonly sun damage from UV exposure, but can also be prompted by hormonal changes, acne scarring and even severe dryness. An increase in the tyrosinase activity, the chemical responsible for melanin production, takes place and excess melanin forms in a concentrated area that creates a pigmented area of skin darker than the surrounding skin tone. UV light from unprotected sun exposure stimulates this activity as does inflammation associated with skin injury or post-acne scarring. Another form of discoloration can occur during pregnancy or use of estrogen/progesterone regulation such as oral contraception or 56

hormone replacement medications. The hormonal changes can stimulate an excess production of melanin and result in a condition called melasma where dark patches form, most commonly on areas of the face. Topical skin lightening formulations such as those found in the Palmer’s Skin Success line are formulated specifically to address these specific skin concerns. Fading discoloration requires a multi-layered approach that begins with inhibiting the production of tyrosinase and therefore the enzyme required for melanin. The next phase is to remove the discolored surface cells through gentle exfoliation and accelerated cell turnover using ingredients such as alpha hydroxy fruit acids and retinol. Once the hyperpigmented surface cells are sloughed away a more uniform, balanced layer of skin is revealed. The last step is to protect the skin and prevent darkening from recurring by regularly using sunscreen. Palmer’s Skin Success products contain a combination of the most the effective ingredients for delivering visible results in as little as two to six weeks of continued use. We’ve had 175 years to perfect the science!

Notes From the

Natural Nation by ReGia Davis


ANOTHER FORM OF ROI As an OTC owner, you often wonder, “What is the return on investment (ROI) when purchasing products for your store?” You are constantly counting, trying to figure out how much money you will get back if you invest in a certain amount of products or services. As an owner, realize it is not always about the monetary return; sometimes it is about the ethical, social conscience that improves the welfare of others. Living in a world where students from every age group lack education, the sick and disabled are fighting to bring public awareness to specific health risks, and humanitarians are working in other countries to build and sustain environments, there is a broad range of charities and philanthropies that companies can partner with to increase the well-being of humankind. Universal Beauty Products, Inc. (UBP) takes pride in giving back to the community and generously donating with concern for human welfare and advancement. Monetary donations, products and quality time have been given to organizations such as Midwest Baptist Church and Cornerstone Fellowship Church School scholarship. Hearts, minds and cultures have been changed because of this act of humanitarianism. These contributions are more than corporate social responsibility. UBP creates value for its executives and employees as well as its suppliers, strategic partners, local communities and customers. Philanthropy nurtures the core set of values helping employees and community members connect emotionally with the company. Shelling out cash is a great gesture, but integrated giving has become a part of corporate processes and purposes to make not just a donation but a difference. Companies should leverage a broad range of philanthropies or charities as well as corporate channels and resources. Often times, attention is given to social inequities addressing wealth, improving health, education and research.

The recent annual Giving in Numbers survey led by the *CECP concludes that 56% of companies increased their total giving from 2012 to 2014. The survey points out five key ways your company should be approaching giving: 1. Measure what counts: 85% of companies measure the impact of their community programs. 2. Innovate new ways to give: Increase the number of innovations including cross-company collaborations, new product development and impact investing. 3. Drive performance through purpose: Companies with the strongest business performance grow by giving the greatest rates. 4. Elevate the role: Honor the role of investment staff by protecting their contribution and its importance. 5. Apply the skills of the company: Leverage employees to contribute to the company’s professional skillset. These five ways demonstrate how companies can continue giving by merging their business missions with their roles as corporate citizens to help make a difference. Corporate philanthropy can include donations of money or of time and labor in the community to improve projects or raising money for a cause. Circulating money in your community can increase the company’s future revenue by income potentially being spent at your business. Communities like to see the goodwill created through corporate philanthropy because it increases their interest and favorable opinions of the company. It return, the “givers” benefit by enhancing their happiness, creating positive attitudes and a life of satisfaction. This helps bring about change in a way that benefits everyone. Contributions, whether within your company or the community, of any sort are seen as life-changing resources that improve lives and strengthen communities. Be a part of the change you want to see. *CECP stands for Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy.

A Call for the OTC Philanthropist!

Charity is a word that is used frequently and loosely, often defined as an immediate voluntary response to those in need. “Give-to-Charity” has become a “catch-phrase.” It is the emotional urge to help others; the change left in a cup of a homeless person on the street or the check written to support the fire or flood emergency. Yet, philanthropy is a more long-term, strategic focus on renewing and rebuilding those in need—a problem-solving call. Why Philanthropy? Why OTC’s? It’s important to make this distinction because OTC’s dwell in areas that are a playground for renewal and rebuilding—urban America. It is particularly important that the OTC’s not only give, but are also vocal givers. Communities need to understand that you support their challenges: the existence of OTC stores in every urban city across the United States, echoing the call for OTC Philanthropy, from a soapbox. OTC stores are staples in the urban and African American community, synonymous with the local beauty salons, barbershops, and supermarkets/bodegas. The primary OTC customer is the African American and Hispanic woman, the core of the family. WOMEN create wealth for beauty and personal care companies in the U.S., estimated to reach $81 Billion by 2017. (Euro Monitor International) Within most cultures and societies the world over, the adage of “with great power, comes great responsibility,” moralistically prevails. As an established fixture in a community where one’s wealth is acquired, it becomes a social responsibility to contribute to the community that sustains the OTC business. Developing a platform of social responsibility is a corporate, social and human responsibility that speaks volumes about your business. It says you care and it gives consumers a “reason to believe” and continue to support your business and with MORE enthusiasm!

Six (6) Reasons to Become a Philanthropist 1. Builds Karma Bank - It’s the right thing to do. Giving is a human, social and business responsibility. 2. Long-Term Cause - Support the people in need that support your business. Commit to a cause and develop a long-term plan (in volunteer time or money, donations or fundraisers). 3. Stand to Receive - Increase employee respect and morale. Show your employees that you stand for worthy values, and ask them to get involved too. 4. Customer Support - It shows the women and community you serve that you care about their needs and appreciate their support of your business. 5. Increase Awareness - It builds awareness for the selected charity and your OTC store. • Partner with a local PR manager or the charities’ PR manager for two months of the project and your awareness could grow in local media or national news, for both the cause and your OTC Store. 6. Tax Deductible - Charitable contributions are tax deductible – 501(c)(3) It’s Overwhelming, Where Do I Begin? Becoming a Philanthropist can actually be quite simple. Philanthropy is about commitment to DOING. Developing a long-term plan to help people renew and rebuild.

6 Reasons to Become One

1) Identify your customer. Who is she/he? What are their patterns, and what are their needs? 2) Think about a common challenge this customer group has. • The options are endless; everything from health and weight concerns, domestic abuse, parenting skills, support of children, career development, educational opportunities…and the list goes on. 3) Insert the cause of your interest in any search engine and the resolve options are endless— locally, regionally or nationally. The opportunities to align with existing causes and their programs make Philanthropy easy. It doesn’t have to be a grand organization effort; it can be as simple as contributing quarterly or annually. Simple, turn-key give-back ideas include: • Inserting a donation box at check out, with specific cause signage. • Supporting an annual 5K. Every city has 5K runs that support a health or some other cause. • Contributing a portion of proceeds during peak times: Holidays, Back-to-School, etc. • Allow a cause organization to host their event in your store. Customers will shop your aisles while the organization raises awareness and fundraises. • Volunteer yourself and include your resources to network for the cause. Becoming a Philanthropist is about your commitment and frequency; it isn’t about the scale of the contribution. Want to Contribute on a Grander Scale? Develop your own non-profit organization. A non-profit organization is an incorporated organization for an educational or charitable cause. Money earned by the non-profit organization must be retained by the organization, and used for its own expenses, operations and programs. Many non-profits benefit from exemption of local taxes including sales and property taxes. For more information on non-profit start-ups, visit and Get a Grant to Support your Non-Profit and Philanthropic Efforts Grants are non-repayable funds or products provided by grant-makers, government entities, corporations, foundations or trusts. In order to receive a grant, some form of “grant writing” often referred to as either a proposal or an application is required. Grants are typically awarded to a distinct group for a specific purpose (i.e. African American women or children living in urban or metropolitan areas, and are primarily provided for specific and defined program development). For more information on grants, go to (Grants for Women), www.SmallBusinessGrants.Biz (Business Grants), and “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” (Maya Angelou) Few of us can make an “Oprah” type of donation—a gift that adds a wing onto a hospital or builds a library at a university. But, almost all of us, with a little planning and commitment, can be Philanthropists that make a difference in some way, large or small.

Three of the company’s charitable efforts are described below 1.



Memphis Feeds Initiative – In 2012, it was reported that the people in the company’s hometown were “Food Insecure.” Since then, they have sponsored a couple of feeds initiatives to help fill the shelves of the local food banks. To date, Ampro has provided more than 40,000 meals to the citizens of the Memphis community who need their help. Breast Cancer Awareness – In 2014, Ampro initiated their first ever “onpack” donation effort to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness. They utilized a lid label to direct consumers to a page on the company website. For each visit to the website, they pledged to donate $1 up to $8,000. To say the least, they more than exceeded their goal. Ampro customers responded in a very BIG way. At the close of 2014, the company donated $8,000 to the Wings Cancer Foundation in Memphis, Tenn. The work continues – In 2015, they are forging partnerships with nationwide charities while continuing to support local efforts not only within the MidSouth (home base), but also in other local communities they serve throughout the US.




회사의 3가지 자선 활동이 아래에 설명되어 있다 Memphis Feeds Initiative – 2012년, 회사의 고향 지역에 있는 사람들이 “Food Insecure식량 안보의 불안정” 을 겪고 있다고 보고되었다. 그 후로, 이 회사는 지역의 푸드 뱅크에 식품을 지원하기 위해 몇몇Feeds Initiative를 후원하고 있다. 지금까지, Ampro는 40,000 끼니 이상을 도움이 필요한 멤피스 지역 주민들에게 제공 하였다. Breast Cancer Awareness유방암 인식 - 2014 년, Ampro는 유방암 인식 캠페인에 혜택이 돌아갈 수 있도록 “on-pack” 기부를 시작했다. 그들은 뚜껑 라벨을 활용해서 소비자들이 회사 웹사이트 페이지를 찾도록 했다. 각 개인들이 웹사이트를 방문할 때마다, 그들은 1 불에서 최대8000불까지 기부하기로 약속했다. 아무리 적게 잡아도, 그들은 목표치를 훨씬 초과했다. Ampro 소비자들은 아주 큰 방법으로 응답했다. 2014년이 끝날 무렵, 회사는 8000불을 테니시의 멤피스에 있는Wings Cancer Foundation에 기부했다. 사업은 계속된다 – 2015년, 회사는 홈 베이스인 중서부 지역 뿐 아니라, 미국 전역의 그들이 도울 수 있는 다른 지역 시회까지 지원하는 노력을 지속적으로 이어갈 뿐 아니라, 전국 규모의 자선단체와 파트너십을 구축하고 있다.

ESSENCE FESTIVAL DAY OF SERVICE We believe in making women feel beautiful, so in recognition of the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the resilient spirit of the people of New Orleans. Ultra Sheen Supreme, Black Opal cosmetics and a local CBS show, The 504 hosted by Sheba Turk, collaborated during the 2015 Essence Festival to ambush makeover two female veterans who valiantly served the city during one of the worst storms in United States history.

Dr. Miracle’s partnered with Raheem for his ‘Queen for a Day’ event which was created to encourage and support victims of domestic violence. The affair included dinner, spa treatments and educational workshops in which DRM-JPC brands representatives discussed proper hair maintenance and provided products as a part of Dr. Miracle’s ‘Undo The Hurt’ campaign which is centered around not only repairing damaged hair, but for women to focus on rebuilding and renewing themselves inside.

SALUTE HER Nationally syndicated radio show for women of color, “Cafe Mocha” and Gentle Treatment are bringing the “Salute Her: Superwomen Making a Difference Awards” ceremony and fundraiser to four cities in 2015: Washington, Atlanta, New York and Chicago. These events will honor women for their exceptional contributions to their communities they serve, as well as raise funds for a local non-profit organization.

Walking in the light of creative altruism… 창조적인 이타심의 빛 속을 걷다…. “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

“모든 사람들은 자신이 창조적인 이타심의 빛 속을 걸을 것인지, 파괴적인 이기심 속을 걸을 것인지를 결정해야만 한다.” - Martin Luther King Jr

“Live your dream, and wear your passion,” the slogan for Bluefield Associates, Inc., fairly epitomizes the culture of the company—a world leader in ethnic skin care products through its ground breaking premier skin care line Clear Essence® Skin Care System. Clear Essence® Skin Care System is distributed worldwide in the United Stated States, Europe, Africa, South America, the Caribbean Islands and Canada. The diverse team of people who are the fabric of Bluefield Associates, Inc. work together in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ghana, Nigeria and China. The Founder and CEO, Dr. Iheatu Obioha, says he lives his dream each day by “getting up and being excited to come to work!” He enthusiastically maintains he works hard so he can “wear his passion” for giving! Clear Essence® Skin Care System was born from that passion. In 1987 Bluefield Associates, Inc. saw a need for reasonably priced, yet efficacious, ethnic skin care. Dr. Obioha set to work, teaming with renowned dermatologists and chemists culled from African and European medical communities. Their task was multi-faceted: To define characteristics of ethnic skin, determine its primary concerns, and develop scientifically-backed formulations delivering real solutions to people of color. For nearly three decades Bluefield Associates, Inc.—a strong family linked together by their inherent desire to give—has in DEED established a conscientious and deliberate path of giving, promoting social responsibilities as the common denominator of all employees of the company. Dr. Obioha likes to say “Charity begins at home” and Bluefield Associates, Inc. employees (also fondly referred to as “family”) live that credo both in giving and receiving! The BAI Family has historically and proactively sought out opportunity to show charity in events such as: Toys for Tots, providing mentoring opportunities through scholarships, to personal grooming care and supplies to kids who have been physically or sexually abused, to a commitment of energies and monies to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and more. It is considered an honored privilege, an investment in the future of children and of the generation they will grow to impact. Support for the community is so quintessential that it is an unwritten knowing that each family member, again we are talking staff, will seek out and lend themselves in any way they can to the betterment of the world around them. The company’s ultimate goal is to expand and enhance their charity corporately and individually in all ways humanitarian. The BAI Family has benefited from the charity of the company. What they expended in giving through their years of employment has come back around in receiving which coincidentally results in a noticeable longevity of Associates. The list includes scholarships to college, protracted paid leave to attend to family needs, and providing a place for individuals to work who otherwise could not find employment. It all works to inspire the strong bond that holds this family close: the desire to give.

“당신의 꿈을 위해 살고, 당신의 열정을 입어라,” Bluefield Associates, Inc의 슬로건인 이 말은 상당히 전형적인 회사의 문화를 보여준다 – 이 회사는 획기적인 프리미어 스킨 케어 라인 Clear Essence® Skin Care System을 통해 다문화 스킨 케어 제품 분야에서 세계적으로 선두에 있는 기업이다. Clear Essence® Skin Care System은 미국, 유럽, 아프리카, 남미, 카리브해 섬, 그리고 캐나다까지 세계적으로 유통되고 있다. Bluefield Associates, Inc를 구성하는 다양한 팀원들이 미국과 영국, 가나, 나이지리아 그리고 중국에서 일하고 있다. 설립자이자 대표인Dr. Iheatu Obioha가 말하기를, 그는 “아침에 일어나서 일하러 오는 것이 아주 흥분됩니다!” 라며 날마다 자신의 꿈을 위해 살고 있다. 그는 아주 열정적으로 일하며 나눔을 위해 “자신의 열정을 입고” 일할 수 있는 것이다! Clear Essence® Skin Care System은 열정으로 태어난 제품이다. 1987년Bluefield Associates, Inc는 합리적인 가격이지만 효과적인 다문화 인종을 위한 스킨 케어 제품이 필요함을 보게 되었다. Dr. Obioha가 그 일에 착수하였고, 아프리카와 유럽 의료 분야로부터 유명한 피부과 의사들과 화학자들을 차출해서 팀을 구성했다. 그들의 업무는 다양했다: 다문화 인종의 피부 특성을 정의 내리고, 그것의 주된 관심사를 결정하고, 유색 인종들의 피부에 실제적인 해결책이 될 수 있는 과학적으로 뒷받침되는 제제를 개발하는 것이었다. 거의 30년 동안, 나눔에 대한 강한 욕구가 내재된 가족들로 단단히 결합된 Bluefield Associates, Inc는 회사 전 직원들의 공통점인 나눔과 사회적 책임을 촉진하기 위해 진정으로 성실하고 신중한 길을 설립했다. Dr. Obioha는 “자선은 가정에서 시작한다”는 말을 좋아하며, Bluefield Associates, Inc. 직원들은 (“가족”이라고 애정을 담아 부른다.)주고 받는 것을 신조로 살고 있다! BAI 가족들은 역사적으로 주도적으로 여러 이벤트에서 자선 활동을 보여줄 기회를 찾았다: Toys for Tots, 장학금을 통해 멘터링 기회를 제공하거나, 신체적으로나 성적으로 학대 받은 아동들에게 그루밍 케어와 제품들을 제공하며, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles에 노력의 에너지와 기금을 제공하는 등의 활동을 하고 있다. 그것은 영광스러운 특권이자 아이들과 앞으로 영향을 주게 될 세대들의 미래를 위한 투자로 여겨진다. 지역을 위해 지원하는 것은 지극히 본질적인 것으로, 모든 가족 구성원들, 다시 말해 전 직원들은 불문율처럼 알고 있는 것이다. 그래서 주변 세상이 향상될 수 있도록 그들이 할 수 있는 것을 스스로 찾고 그것이 어떤 방법이든 직접 실행 할 것이다. 회사의 궁극적인 목표는 모든 인주주의적인 차원에서 개인적으로 또 회사적으로 그들의 자선을 확장하고 높이는 것이다. BAI 가족들은 회사의 자선 활동으로부터 편익을 얻는다. 고용 기간 동안 나눔 활동을 많이 하는 직원들은 무언가를 돌려받게 되고, 결과적으로 그러한 직원들은 현저히 오래 근무하고 있음이 눈에 띄게 나타났다. 대학 장학금, 개인적인 가족 문제가 있을 경우 장기 유급 휴가, 그리고 직장을 찾지 못한 사람들에게 일할 수 있는 장소를 제공하는 등의 혜택이 있다. 이것은 모두 이 회사의 가족들을 더욱 가깝게 결속하는 역할을 한다. 이것은 곧 나눔의 의지인 것이다.

Currently, Bluefield’s benefaction includes the following: • The Bluefield Associate Scholarship Program • Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles - • Orangewood Children’s Foundation - • Loma Linda Children’s Hospital - Bluefield is a dynamic company. “Growing people,” developing them into the best versions of themselves, is as much a part of their corporate culture as their product line. In the words of Dr. Obioha, “Strong family transcends the boundaries of Bluefield Associates, Inc.” Finally, “We do whatever can be done to allow us to give back!”

현재 Bluefield의 기부금 현황: • The Bluefield Associate Scholarship Program • Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles - • Orangewood Children’s Foundation - • Loma Linda Children’s Hospital - Bluefield는 역동적인 기업이다. 그들이 가장 좋아하는 형식으로 그들을 개발하고 있는 “ 성장하는 사람들”이 생산 제품만큼이나 중요한 기업 문화의 일원이다. Dr. Obioha의 말로, “ 강한 가족은 Bluefield Associates, In의 경계를 초월한다.” 마지막으로, “우리는 환원하기 위해 우리에게 허락된 무엇이든 할 수 있다!” Bluefield Associates, Inc.

For 2014-15 the popular haircare company has pledged to significantly increase the sponsorship level to become a national sponsor of the organization, whose mission focuses on young women with breast cancer. “YSC is a wonderful organization with an important vision we support and believe in. Their work to increase the quality of life and uplift the lives of young women with breast cancer is near and dear to our hearts,” says Bethany Pagliarulo, Not Your Mother’s owner. “Breast cancer isn’t just happening in October and it’s not just affecting older women.

Jennifer Merschdorf, CEO at Young Survival Coalition, says “We are so thrilled to again have the support and partnership of Not Your Mother’s. Their newly expanded support as a national sponsor is a testament to our mission and to their commitment to young women facing breast cancer.” YSC helps young women with breast cancer stand strong against the many unique challenges they face including higher mortality rates, fertility issues and the possibility and ramifications of early menopause. In YSC’s network of young women, however, those challenges can look more like opportunities to accomplish shared goals. YSC works with its members to advocate for more studies about young women and breast cancer; educate young women about the importance of breast selfawareness and knowledge; and serve as a community of support for young women with breast cancer.

Give Your Clippers Some T.L.C. T.L.C, or tender loving care, helps any relationship last longer. Think about it—can you imagine a long-lasting marriage without intimacy? Or a car getting 200,000 miles without regular oil changes and tune-ups? Of course not. The same is true when it comes to clippers and trimmers—you must maintain them to make them last. To keep your clippers and trimmers in top shape, follow this T.L.C. routine… it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. 1. CLEAN First, make sure to turn your tool off. Clean hair remnants and any other debris from the blades with a brush. Next, use Andis Dry Care™ high-pressure air cleaner to blast remaining debris and grime from the blades. The concentrator nozzle is perfect for accessing hard-to-reach areas. 2. DISINFECT Next, follow up with Cool Care Plus™. It is a 5-in-1 coolant/disinfectant spray which includes virucide, fungicide, bactericide and tuberculocide ingredients. To apply, turn on your clipper or trimmer and apply a generous spray to the blade. Turn off the tool and then use a towel to wipe off any excess fluid along with any remaining debris. For health purposes remember to disinfect between each client. 3. LUBRICATE To prolong the life of your clippers and trimmers make sure you use Andis Clipper Oil on your blades after each haircut. Apply five small drops of oil, one on each major contact point of your moving blades—three across the front and one on each side toward the back rail. Regular lubrication will ensure your tools are operating at peak cutting performance. Keep in mind that these steps apply for clippers with adjustable or detachable blades. However, detachable blades will be a little easier to clean since they can be quickly and easily removed.

Clean tools ensure optimum performance and a longer tool life, and if you

follow the simple T.L.C. maintenance steps above that’s just what you’ll get!

Beauty of Business Community Manufacturers and OTCs often tap into the beauty of supporting entrepreneurship. Throughout the beauty business, small startups have been honored and encouraged. Individuals with innovation and technology have also been supported. Remember, the legends of the beauty business were once budding entrepreneurs and innovators…the McBrides, Bronners, Johnsons and Gardners. Madame C. J. Walker started the beauty industry and is still promoted as the first African American millionaire. Her success and philanthropy are still big news. A scholarship in her honor would be good press as well as goodwill. When it comes to charity there is no better way to give back to the community than to support local business. Larger manufacturers often promote their procurement programs among certified minority and women-owned businesses. They often award scholarships and support training and internship opportunities. Most get a double beauty benefit of featuring successful employees or vendors in their ads and community events. OTCs can promote burgeoning entrepreneurship by featuring their support of the many small business product launches. Success stories can be published with store merchandising aids or in the local press. Contributing to future salon and barber business, owners or schools can create a cause-related marketing buzz. Entrepreneurial contests, book camps or business collaborations can become charitable connections to your store’s image and concern for economic development. A charitable nod to entrepreneurism could reinforce the commitment to consumers, the beauty business and the community served. Every dollar invested will be returned in consumer spending and profitability.

Mentorship has Benefits

The Barbering industry has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and ironically it has developed or produced very few mentors in our industry to help cultivate the next generation of barbers. What is a mentor you ask? A mentor is a person or friend who guides a less experienced person by building trust and modeling positive behaviors. An effective mentor understands that his or her role is to be dependable, engaged, authentic and tuned into the needs of the mentee. Here are some tips: 1. Establish a game plan. Don’t wing it; mentors are several levels above you. They’ve climbed the ranks from the bottom, and have the insight into what it takes to get to the top, which can be helpful if you’re interested in becoming a success in your industry. 2. Look beyond your circle of influence. Put the word out that you’re looking for someone in your industry to advise you on your career path, and you never know who will turn up. But if you don’t let people know you’re looking, the search will be much harder. 3. Be extremely flexible. It is key to get face time with your mentor, but remember they will be busy with career and life so do not expect anything from your mentor as time will be as valuable as advice. Opt for phone and email if he or she is too busy to meet in person. 4. Be prepared. Come to each meeting with your mentor armed with questions or a subject you want to cover. This will help you maximize your time, and you won’t leave anything out. 5. Be grateful. Your mentor is giving his or her time to you in exchange for the pleasure of watching your career unfold. Show your gratitude by thanking them often.

National Professional Salon Industry Celebrates at Spirit of Life® Award Gala in Las Vegas City of Hope honors Steve Goddard, CEO & Founder of PRAVANA More than 700 salon industry executives and supporters attended City of Hope’s National Professional Salon Industry (NPSI) Spirit of Life® Award Gala on July 11, 2015 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to honor Steve Goddard, CEO & Founder of PRAVANA. City of Hope is a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and life-threatening diseases, and The Spirit of Life Award is the institution’s most prestigious philanthropic honor. The award is presented annually to a beauty industry leader who has demonstrated outstanding business and philanthropic achievement. “Rock the Cure”—the theme for this year’s event—celebrated the hope of new treatments, even cures, for cancer and other diseases. The celebration featured a cocktail reception, a silent auction, a Bora Bora trip giveaway, and a special performance by Don Felder, formerly with the Eagles. To date, the “Rock the Cure” campaign has raised more than $1 million for City of Hope. Goddard accepted The Spirit of Life Award from his industry colleague and friend for more than a few decades, Ann Mincey, formerly with REDKEN 5th

Avenue. Having been in the beauty industry for over 30 years, Goddard decided in 2004 to return to his creative marketing roots and launched a new beauty entity, PRAVANA; a boutique brand of highly sophisticated products utilizing the power of the nature and the strength of technology to produce superior, holistic formulas. PRAVANA’s NEVO hair care products are 100% Vegan and 100% Gluten-Free, packaged in bottles that are 100% biodegradable, and in the spirit of caring, for every purchase of NEVO made, 5% of sales is donated to City of Hope towards the fight against cancer. To date NEVO has raised over $240,000 since the program started in 2012. Thank you to the numerous companies that sponsored the event including PRAVANA & Revitalash/Athena cosmetics for being our two All Access sponsors; our Platinum Sponsors: CND/Revlon, Colorproof, Great Clips, JCP Salons, John Paul Mitchell Systems, Joico/Zotos, KAO inc., Matrix, SalonCentric, and Wella; and our Media Sponsors: American Salon, Creative Age Publications, Modern Salon, OTC Beauty Magazine and Professional Beauty Association.

Namaste “Celebration of Beauty” Reception Following the second show day of CPNA, Namaste Laboratories graciously showed appreciation to their customers at their Customer Appreciation Event titled “Celebration of Beauty.” Held in the Sky Villa at the Palms Casino Resort, the view was absolutely breathtaking. The evening was filled with great music, delicious food, dancing and fun with friends.

ShowReport by Stephanie Scott

Cosmoprof: What Happens at this Global Beauty Show in Vegas, Doesn’t Stay in Vegas What visitors and exhibitors have to say about this year’s show and advice for the next Spanning across three continents in three cities—Bologna, Las Vegas and Hong Kong—Cosmoprof is undeniably the world’s largest and most anticipated beauty exhibition. Each year, Cosmoprof North America takes place in Las Vegas where the annual event attracts exhibitors, buyers, press and visitors for three days of exciting launches, deal making and educational discussions. This year’s event was held July 12 -14 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center and drew a huge crowd of beauty veterans and newbies all clamoring to see what’s next in the cosmetics, skin, nails, hair and fragrance industries. Cosmoprof North America takes place directly after the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) and has evolved to include sections focusing on manufacturing; countries—including Brazil, Chile, China and Italy; Spotlight—a section for new and emerging brands; Tones of Beauty and Discover Scent. Exhibitors ranged from large and familiar brands, like Revlon Professional, to newer brands including Pottymints—the world’s first dissolvable air refreshing tablets for the bathroom—who debuted new products and drew rave reviews. We caught up with a few show-goers to see what they gleaned from this year’s event. love, Aunt Bonnie “This was my fourth consecutive year attending the North American show and my seventh year in total after attending the Bologna show,” shared Corey Huggins, Founder & Global CEO of love, Aunt Bonnie. Huggins worked with Cosmoprof to develop Tones of Beauty, a luxury showcase catering to the Black and Brown beauty market. Huggins, who was able to solidify new clients from Africa and Europe at the show, found the show to be beneficial as he was able to discover brands from all over the world and interact with them under one roof to really get to know them. His advice to brands considering attending next year is to be prepared; know which brands you have to meet and make those the priority. He advises looking to discover new brands after that. Men Rock First time attendee and UK-based men’s grooming company Men Rock decided to attend the show only nine months prior, after attending Cosmoprof Bologna, and they certainly made an impact. Men Rock’s Managing Partner, Paul Johnson, had a threefold goal set when he decided to exhibit at Cosmoprof North America: (1) to see if the US buyers would be as excited as consumers in Europe have been, (2) to build a distribution network for US expansion and (3) to gain a better understanding of the US market. “We were overwhelmed with the positive reception and there is every chance that we made all the contacts to be able to launch effectively in the US 88

OTC Beauty Magazine September 2015

ahead of our own targets,” Johnson stated. His advice for future attendees is to be clear on your objectives going in and not be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the show and opportunities. Weigh your opportunities and get ready to begin the hard work after the show. MD Solar Sciences Trusted brand MD Solar Sciences is available in the professional channel (i.e. dermatologist offices), but decided to exhibit at Cosmoprof as an entryway into the prestige market to share their efficacious products for modern women. Visitors were able to meet with MD Solar Sciences in the Discovery Beauty area where they had the chance to tell their story, and set up intimate meetings with buyers and press looking to learn more about the science behind their preventative and restorative line. My Skin Corey Williams, a licensed cosmetologist with over 23 years of industry experience and the CEO of My Skin, attended the show to gain insight and meet with distributors for the brand. Williams attends several shows a year and believes that Cosmoprof is one of the best in the industry. “Our expectations were met,” said Williams. “We were able to gain exposure to our brand and gain the right niche of distribution that we were looking for.” My Skin produces an effective, yet gentle solution for ingrown hairs and other skin problems. Scents of Place Perhaps the most exciting thing of beauty that I saw at the show was the Scents of Place fragrance machine from 5th Screen Design. I learned about the concept a few years back at a trend forecasting event, so I was thrilled to see that the idea had come to life. Scents of Place is a revolutionary fragrance-sampling device that allows consumers to learn about fragrance while testing them out using a digital fragrance dispenser. The juice is emitted in the air so you can sample as many as you like without the fear of mixing or over layering. For retail outlets looking for a new way to attract and generate more fragrance sales, this could be used in a variety of settings— perhaps as an airport vending machine. The beauty industry is constantly evolving, but one thing remains the same: our desire to find innovative ways to meet the consumer’s lifestyle and demands. Attending a tradeshow like Cosmoprof is a great way to see what’s new and build relationships with distributors, other brands, buyers, marketing firms and the press. It’s up to the brands to attend and present what’s new in the beauty space, and if you are an attendee, do your homework, come prepared and get ready for the rush after the show.

“Beauty Logica is young but growing. We are gaining loyal customers daily with our fantastic customer service, prices, and fast shipping, but we still have much to learn.

Jinny Corp. IT Team Announces Significant After 4.5 years, Jinny Corp., the number one multicultural distributor in the world, is excited to announce that the company’s own consolidated ERP system, JLOFT, has achieved a major milestone. The Jinny IT department has worked tirelessly to create and arrive at this major milestone, and now their efforts have resulted in a noteworthy accomplishment. “JLOFT stands for Jinny Logistical Order Fulfillment Technologies, and when it is fully deployed, Jinny United will be running with a centralized database,” explained Maia Leung, Director of IT. As of now, two legacy internal systems are being used by the company and JLOFT will integrate all data into one system for ease of use. This single centralized database system “will help Jinny to be more agile and responsive in operation and making business decisions,” elaborated Leung. Jinny Corp. has invested over $6.5 million in this project that is sure to benefit the company and their customers for years to come. On June 30, 2015 the team reached a significant milestone toward that goal. In recognition of this accomplishment, a substantial bonus was awarded to the group. There are a few more intermediate milestones to be reached before the targeted March 2016 release, but each step is significant and worthy of recognition, especially one of this magnitude. JLOFT is well on its way to have a gradual implementation across all Jinny locations. Each release will be monitored and enhanced to ensure the system benefits the company as best possible. After initial R1 release, continual work will be carried out on the front end for JLOFT, in addition to enhancing functionalities and break fix support. The team also has a long-term goal of creating a world class point of sale (POS) system built on JLOFT’s foundation that will enable customers to manage stores more efficiently, in addition to easy ordering with Jinny. Currently in Atlanta, the JLOFT team consists of: Corey Bradley, Daniel Rix, David Wallace, Harrison Mitchell, James Toles, Larry Rix, Maia Leung, Philip Ulrich and Ronald Hatchett. Additional team members include software development and database consultants that work/worked off site (Brian Leahy, Curtis Smith, Edward Montgomery, Emmanuel Stapf, Ian Howard, Jeremy Carroll, Kevin Lawson, Michael McGettigan, Neal Lester, Stan Nichols and Victor Wheeler) as well as a new QA 92

Analyst, Business Analyst and programmer that aid in progression toward the release 1 goal. The team enlisted the help of the consultants to help start up the project. Most project tasks were gradually handed over to the Atlanta-based members, as described below. •

Corey Bradley handled all core accounting modules, including customer transaction processing. He is instrumental in implementing the special ized hair item lookup feature. This lookup feature is modelled after the successfully implemented JOS Warrior ordering system on smart phone and tablet for the outside salesperson.

• Daniel Rix has focused on the purchasing side of JLOFT development. Intensive involvement of purchasing users has resulted in their craving for the upcoming buyer module, which will streamline workflow by all buyers. •

David Wallace is the focal point of the reporting side. Using the report library and other tools, David is responsible for the report markup, report module interface and data hookup. He worked with other team members on enhancing the report library and report module interface, as well as sharing the report markup process.

Harry Mitchell took up the challenge from the start to design and build the sales order module. The module allows sales people to easily find and add related products as well as sales promotion group products, and easily see product information. The item bulk search has a suggestive drop down table to show results without having to jump to another tab or page.

Milestone Achieved in JLOFT System • Philip Ulrich has performed a lot of work to stabilize internal codes in JLOFT. These behind the scenes codes are critical to the smooth and correct running of JLOFT. In addition, he provided a great deal of sup port to the other developers as well as giving JLOFT new capabilities (for example, object recovery for JLOFT to recover from where it left off after a crash), database structure and content testing, speed optimization, and GUI re-theming of the application. He also helped write a functioning POS prototype web application with a JLOFT backend. •

Larry Rix is the JLOFT project lead. The FogBugZ software bug and issue tracking system in use helps Jinny to manage the project with improved team synergy. Larry implemented the data file format library to enable JLOFT to exchange certain data with the legacy JBS and JMS systems during the coexistence deployment period.

Application development consultants Brian Leahy, Edward Montgomery, Emmanuel Stapf, Ian Howard, Kevin Lawson, Neal Lester and Victor Wheeler provide guidance and senior technical expertise. In addition to working with Atlanta-based peers on design, object model, framework, application tools and skill transfer, code reviews are conducted periodically. This provides invaluable feedback and in spiration for everyone. Continual enhancement of the masking library helps increase easy coverage of user input validation.

• James Toles and developers work together in the DevChange cycle on database changes. • Ronald Hatchett is the gatekeeper of sane data while bringing the

legacy JMS data over to the JLOFT system. The Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) process, in addition to the post ETL tasks, enables Jinny to consolidate data from all Jinny companies to a centralized database.

• Both database administrators are key to database diagramming, schema change, deployment and other database-related tasks, and critical to the JLOFT system development and deployment success. • •

Database consultants Curtis Smith, Jeremy Carroll, Michael McGettigan, and Stan Nichols did the initial database sizing, design, configuration and ETL setup together with the database administrators. Craig Wood, Dave Murphy and Paul Hardy from the technical services team helps on the infrastructure setup and ongoing support for the JLOFT team, in addition to providing technical support for the Jinny United and carrying out other projects. Application support elevation and legacy enhancement requests are handled by David Wallace, Maia Leung, Paul Hardy and Philip Masses-Valera.

Furthermore, Jinny’s JOS Mobile ordering system running on smart phone and tablet will be available for customer use very soon. It is based on the existing JOS Warrior app for Jinny’s own outside sales force use. There was a new release of the JOS Warrior on Windows smart phone and tablet in August 2015. The initial version of JOS Mobile on iOS is targeted to be available this month, September 2015. JOS Mobile on Android will be available afterward. With this exciting news and a roadmap to availability, Jinny has invested heavily in their IT development and infrastructure initiatives as part of the project portfolios. They distinguish Jinny from the rest of the industry. This will bring Jinny and its customers to the next level and beyond. September 2015 OTC Beauty Magazine

IndustryNews NCNW View Park Chapter Community Breakfast The National Council of Negro Women is a non-profit membership organization with a local Los Angeles chapter that is consistently supported by Clear Essence Cosmetics. On June 6, 2015 the group hosted a community breakfast at Imperial Courts, which is a public housing district in Los Angeles. The event was in support of a new initiative called the “Save Ourselves Sisters Program” which looks to combat issues facing at risk youth within the Black community. Save Ourselves Sisters touches the lives of girls, ages 8-18, in the areas of: Health and Wellness, Life Skills, Etiquette, Personal Development, Financial Literacy, Social Media Etiquette, HIV and AIDS, Cyber Bullying, Sex Trafficking Prevention, Positive Imagery, Domestic Violence Prevention, Hair and Skin Care, Foster Youth Advocacy, Job Preparedness and Parenting Classes for both girls and participants’ parents. The event served as a call to action and gave tips to the local community as to how they could serve as role models and mentors for the younger generation. The panel also showed recognition of current leaders and local community supporters that have helped jump-start the program.

Clear Essence Cosmetics attended the event as a vendor/sponsor and passed out over 100 sample packs to men and women at the venue. The skin care company also provided pastries and orange juice towards the breakfast. Clear Essence staff members educated women on their products and gave general skin care knowledge to benefit one’s complexion and over all confidence. As the overall theme of the event conveyed, Black women must connect with, influence and support one another to improve their personal opportunities within their communities and as productive members of society. Clear Essence Cosmetics understands this goal and wants to put women at their best in terms of confidence and appearance. For this reason, Clear Essence continues to support Black women’s events similar to the NCNW’s Community Breakfast and the Save Ourselves Sisters Program.

IndustryNews Oster Professional ® and Club Tattoo®

Article courtesy of Mafe De Alba, Oster Professional® Product Marketing Manager Gone are the days when tattoos were rare and a sign of rebellion and controversy. From subculture to pop culture, tattoos have become a beautiful form of self-expression and a meaningful way to document experiences lived, memories, lessons learned or a struggle that has been overcome. A tattoo is a way to self-express and connect with things that we love; a reminder of who we are and our deepest passions. A Shared Craft Hair dressers, barbers, stylists and tattoo makers are highly creative beings that express their passions through their artistic work. If you think a tattoo is an artistic creation, take a look at what a hair professional can make with a pair of clippers and scissors. Their hands are the tools used for their creations and this is the way they bring their art to the people. They are all artists sharing a craft. Oster professional® products and the world famous Club Tattoo®, a luxury tattoo studio concept with multiple locations in the US (Las Vegas, Arizona, San Francisco and opening soon at the Harley Davidson located in Scottsdale), have joined forces to create a lifestyle concept of professional beauty tools that convey art and self-expression. This new special collection of clippers and blades will be launched

in fall 2015 and will embrace the fast growing trend art of tattooing with the beauty industry. The suite will showcase work of amazing Club Tattoo artists and the lifestyles they represent for the professional trade. The Oster® Club Tattoo® suite of products will include the famous Oster® Classic 76 heavy duty clipper, the Oster® Fast Feed® and the Oster® T-Finisher®. A 4-pack of Club Tattoo branded blades will be offered to complement the collection. A creative work is never finished. There’s always a new limit to push; something new to explore. Whatever your canvas, IT’S YOURS™. About Club Tattoo® World Famous Club Tattoo was founded in 1995 when Chester Bennington (Singer for Linkin Park & Stone Temple Pilots) partnered with industry leaders Sean and Thora Dowdell to create the hottest tattoo studios in the world! It is a luxury tattoo studio concept that has multiple locations serving the Las Vegas Strip inside Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops and the LINQ Hotel & Casino, San Francisco’s Pier 39, and multiple Arizona locations.

Consumer Feedback: “Growth? Absolutely!!

My hair has stopped shedding and breaking, and looks great!”
