Coty Inc. (NYSE: COTY) today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, ended March 31, 2018.   Net revenues of $2,222.7 million increased 9.4% as reported, compared to the prior year and increased 3.4%, while adjusted operating income of $227.8 million increased 9.4% from $208.3 million.  Coty CEO, Camillo Pane, attributed most of the company’s growth to the Luxury and Professional Beauty division, while “The Consumer Beauty division continued its uneven performance, but with encouraging signs of stability,” he shared.

Coty, which has recently relaunched the CoverGirl, Max Factor, and Clairol brands and acquired Burberry, ghd, and Younique Cosmetics, recently divested fourteen of its Consumer Beauty brands over the past year.  Pane explained, “We continued to reshape our growth profile by strengthening our iconic global brands, supported by recent relaunches. We are also fueling smaller brands with high growth potential and stabilizing the remaining portfolio including the conclusion of our previously communicated portfolio rationalization program.”  Regarding the sales of successful brands such as Cutex, Guess and Jennifer Lopez fragrances, he added, “This streamlining of our portfolio is an important milestone that will allow us to focus on those brands where we believe we are particularly suited to drive long term revenue growth.”

TREND ALERT: THE FEATHERED BOB!

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Rowan Blanchard just debuted Spring’s hottest haircut trend: The Feather Bob. What exactly is a feather bob?  “The ends of a feather are slightly textured but it keeps a curved shape that still looks blunt,” explains her hairstylist Laurie Heaps. “This is exactly how I cut her new chin length style. Rowan is always changing and evolving and so with that, I see her differently and the longer bob didn’t reflect who she was anymore. She was ready for a change. Sharp edgy 90’s babe meets French girl chic.”

To begin, Laurie cut the base line in a soft “U” shape and then point cut it, taking the points of her scissors and chopping into the line to soften it. “Yet, I wanted to keep the ends looking blunt, not overly texturized, just like a feather.”  On dry hair she dived sections and prepped with  White Sands Liquid Texture Medium Styling Spray.  Smoothing each section with the GHD Classic 1″ Styler she was able to achieve a frizz-free, blunt look.  Then she created a deep side part ad sprinkled BioSilk’s Volumizing Therapy Texturizing Powder at the roots.  “It is best to work this in with your fingers for instant volume and texture,” she suggests.  Finally, she finished with a mild control hairspray and shine spray in one can, Redken’s Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist.
