NPD: SPECIALTY STYLERS & CURLING IRONS/BRUSHES LEAD APPLIANCES GROWTH How big is the overall U.S. haircare appliances business? Sales of flat irons/straighteners, hair dryers, specialty stylers and curling irons/brushes to consumers reached $1.318 billion for the 12-month period that ended in August 2014, Beauty Store Business has learned from The NPD Group. The figure is for haircare appliances sold in retail stores (beauty stores, department stores, drugstores, national chains, mass merchants, specialty stores, groceries, discount stores, warehouse clubs and hardware/home centers) and direct to consumers, according to The NPD Group's syndicated Consumer Tracking Service for Small Personal Care Appliances. And that's a 3% increase over the prior 12-month period that ended in August 2013. Other relevant data from The NPD Group released to BSB: • Specialty stylers totaled $304 million in the most recent 12-month period, up 24% from the prior 12-month period; about 23% of the overall market dollar share. • Curling irons/brushes totaled $261 million in the most recent 12-month period, up 10% from the prior 12-month period; about 20% of the overall market dollar share. • Hair dryers totaled $363 million in the most recent 12-month period, up 4% from the prior 12-month period; about 28% of the overall market dollar share. • Flat irons/straighteners totaled $390 million in the most recent 12-month period, down 12% from the prior 12-month period; about 30% of the overall market dollar share. "Innovation is key to driving sales growth for haircare appliances, stimulating demand at relatively higher price points," Debra J. Mednick, executive director and home industry analyst for The NPD Group, told BSB. "Given the celebrity-inspired trends of wavier hair, women and girls have migrated toward tools that help achieve these looks—as opposed to the super-straight styles popular just a few years ago." SEPHORA OPENS NEW DISTRIBUTION CENTER Sephora Americas has officially opened a state-of-the-art distri- bution center in Perryman, Maryland. The 655,000-square-foot Mid-Atlantic Distribution Center is its largest distribution center. "Our clients turn to Sephora not only for our vast product assort- ment, but also for our exceptional quality of service," says Martin Flaherty, vice president of logistics, Sephora Americas. "As we continue to grow, our facilities must expand along with us in order to maintain a superior level of customer experience. At the same time, we are very pleased to utilize the newest generation of technol- ogy and a range of sustainable practices and materials in order to minimize the impact of our operations on the environment, and we are also glad to be providing additional jobs in the local area." DERMA E EXPANDS RETAIL The derma e natural skincare brand has been busy lately, reports Jennifer Norman, vice president of marketing: • A curated selection of 10 products is now offered at Sally Beauty Supply stores nationwide and at sallybeauty.com. • Twenty-eight products are now available at 15 Ricky's NYC stores in New York City and Miami and at rickysnyc.com. The award-winning brand features more than 80 products that are free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and petrolatum. They're also cruelty-free and 100% vegan. ■
