Four beauty industry decision-makers pulled back the curtain on what’s driving their business at the recent Efficient Program Planning Session at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas.
Among the market drivers: clean beauty, the race to be first, indie brands, multicultural lines and mature shoppers driving bold hair-color sales. The panel included Dawn Norvell, senior buyer, hair color, multicultural hair care and hair accessories at Walmart; Maria Rush, vice president of business development for the Beauty Collection Stores; Quintin Bean, executive director of South-Africa-based distributor Sunpac, and Tracy Abbott, senior director of retail merchandising, Massage Envy.

Take a peek into Gucci's new Instagram account (@guccibeauty), which is guided by Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision of beauty. In typical Gucci fashion, the account already features a series of artworks spanning across history, ethnicity, culture and geography. It will showcase and promote its new cosmetic launches and fragrances as well as looks from the fashion shows and special collaborations with artists and talents. #wwdbeauty
