BRANCHING OUT: KMS Research Inc. has embarked on a campaign to raise the profile of the KMS brand among salon professionals beyond the West Coast, the KAO Corp.-owned brand’s home territory. For starters, hairstylist Nick Arrojo has led a series of KMS demonstrative hair shows in Boston, Montreal and Chicago to audiences of 500 salon professionals. And, KMS’ biggest biannual show, Style Council, will be held in January — the first to feature Arrojo as U.S. artistic director. This past spring the company opened its inaugural concept salon, a 4,000-square-foot space on Manhattan’s Varick Street, called Arrojo Studio. The salon is expected to reach sales of $1 million and could double that figure in the next year.
33 NEW FLAVORS: Extracts, the trade show for aromatherapy, personal care and fragrance, is expecting 33 new companies to exhibit at its fall show, held at the Jacob K. Javits Center Sept. 19-22. Some of the first-timers include Rachel Perry, MD Salon Services and French companies Comptoir Sud Pacifique and Roger & Gallet.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
