Get On-the-Job Training Right: Four Strategies to Start Using Now

By Kate Zabriskie Despite our best efforts, it’s not as easy as it looks to get the training equation right. We train too early, we train too much, or we make a host of other errors. While some of us learn from our mistakes, many of us practice a cycle of rinse and repeat as we make the same blunders year after year.

an unprecedented amount of stress. During this time, there is a need for a morale boost–something to lift the spirits and ignite hope. According to the Mayo Clinic, volunteering has a few health benefits. Giving back can increase “positive” feelings, give someone a sense of meaning, and reduce stress levels. If you want to tap into the energy of gratitude and generosity, consider giving back in some way this fall season. You can donate to a local cause that is meaningful to you, volunteer at a non-profit, or even help a friend in need. Remember, it’s the thought that counts. Our September issue focuses on The Beauty of Charity. We have several stories highlighting how our vendors and partners give back to their community. Check out “The Lasting Impact of Generosity” on page 10 and our Manufacturer Profiles with Luster Products Inc. (page 50) and House of Cheatham (page 66) to find out about the fantastic projects they have going on. The Jinny Sales event in Chicago was a complete success in the spirit of unity. Check out the details, photos, and fun on page 53. I hope you make time to be grateful for what you have and are inspired to find a meaningful cause that moves you to action. Allyson Leak EDITOR

feeling that keeps you from delivering the excellent customer service your staff and patrons have come to expect. Left unchecked, this weariness can impact your business in many negative ways, from short tempers to lost business. Let’s unpack the what, where, why, and how of service fatigue and get on the path to busting out of it.

Where does Service Fatigue come from? After a stressful few years, various challenges have caused service fatigue levels to skyrocket. But the truth is, service fatigue can strike at any time, and much of it is really nothing new. It’s short-tempered customers who escalate to anger quickly. It’s trying (and usually failing) to juggle multiple priorities at a time. It’s navigating ever-changing business policies. It’s responsibilities that outnumber hours in the day.

What does Service Fatigue look like? You know what customer service delivery should look like. Attentive.

CLIPPER TIPS

Sponsored by Andis Co.

Achieve a New Level of Versatility with Detachable Blades By Andis Company

Detachable blade clippers are popular among barbers for their heavy-duty haircutting capability and the additional versatility they deliver over attachment combs. With a wide range of detachable blade types available, professionals should select blades based on their clientele and the styles they create most often. Below are some Andis® detachable blade options that every pro should consider to boost productivity: T-84 Blade- The T-84 leaves hair behind the same length as a number 1 blade set yet is wider to cut more hair evenly. If the Flat Top style is popular at a shop, such as those located near a military facility, this blade is a must have. Outliner Blade – The Outliner clipper blade replicates the performance of the T-Outliner Trimmer in a larger format and is a valuable asset for any barber who says they cut bald fades. This should be discussed with every barber that walks into your retail store. Skip Tooth Blades – The 3 3/4 Skip Tooth blade is perfect for laying down thin hair with a loose S wave pattern. When the hair is thin and has a loose wave, it is easy to clip too much hair in a small section and it will appear as if there is a bald spot. The alternating sizes of blade teeth on the lower blade of the Skip Tooth reduces the amount of hair that is lifted up and then cut. Simply said, select a Skip Tooth blade for barbers cutting large amounts of curly hair clients, especially older men with thinning hair. 5/8 and ¾” HT Blades - These are the largest/longest cutting of the detachable blades Andis produces and are most valuable for the clipper cutter who needs to move fast and doesn’t have time for scissor-over-comb technique in the crown area. For more information about detachable blades visit andis.com today. 40

Great products and excellent service has made Luster’s the world’s leading African-American-owned manufacturer of premium personal care products.

Luster-Mac (RLM): At Luster Products, it is our mission to super serve and effectively satisfy the special needs of the African American and multicultural consumer.

we’ve never abandoned and that we attribute to our longevity and success. When options were few, Luster Products’ was there for them and even with more options in the market, we’ve established a deeply rooted connection with this community so they trust us.

OTC: I know you launched a new look for your Classic Pink Lotion. How have customers responded? RLM: So far our consumers have been loving the new look of our Pink Lotion and Glosser. They love the metallic effect when you move the bottle in your hands and they also love that the updates are subtle enough that they can still recognize and find two of their favorite products when

shopping at shelf.

RLM: My grandfather, the late Fred Luster, Sr., while working as a successful barber in Chicago, Illinois, was motivated to personally develop hair care products for the health and maintenance of clients’ hair. At the outset, the formulas were sold exclusively in his barbershop. As word spread about his products’ effectiveness, demand increased. He then began selling the products to other barbers and hairstylists. Propelled by early success, my grandfather established Luster Products Inc. in 1957. With family support and inspiration, he led the company from a modest storefront operation to an international multimillion-dollar enterprise. Due to his vision, business savvy and commitment, Luster

OTC: What are some of the key ingredients in your Natural Oil blends collection and how is the feedback from your customers? RLM: Some of the key ingredients across our Natural Oil Blends collection are Castor, Tea Tree,Clary Sage, Rosemary, Coconut and Lavender oils and Aloe Vera. However, the full formulation blends differ across products based on the results we are looking to achieve. For instance, our new Comfort Oil scalp serum has peppermint oil in it which provides the soothing tingly sensation.

Products flourished and has remained an industry leader for the last 65 years.

OTC: What brands fall under the Luster umbrella? RLM: We have Luster’s Pink, Luster’s Pink Kids, S Curl, Smooth Touch, PCF, Renutrients and Shortlooks.

OTC: What trends do you feel are most prevalent in the multicultural beauty industry right now? Is there anything that you would like to see change/ shift? RLM: Right now, what’s interesting is that the trend we are seeing is that consumers aren’t following the path of ‘trends’ anymore so much as they’re all about finding the right product routines and rituals that work best

OTC: What have you found is the best way to connect with the Luster customer? RLM: The best way to connect with our customer is to truly meet them where they are. That could be online on social media, walking the aisles of an OTC store, out and about in the community or even at the local hair salon or barber shop.

OTC: How can OTC stores benefit from having your product lines in their stores? RLM: We believe that OTC stores typically have the best product assortments and are where hair care or ingredient trends can really originate and where a lot of consumer education can happen at shelf. So having Luster Products’ brands in OTC stores allows us as a brand and our OTC partners to be part of that trendsetting and educational conversation.

It is one of my grandfather Fred Luster Sr.’s original requirements for the company “that we support and give back to the community that has so graciously supported us.” The primary focus of our support has been to organizations that benefit African American youth; however, here are some of the organizations that we have supported over the years: The Joseph Assignment (building fresh water drinking wells in Ghana), Mam/ Wow youth guidance organizations, American Cancer Society, La Rabida Children’s Hospital, The Faith Community of Saint

The Biggest Vendors Present to our Sales Reps at Chicago’s Navy Pier NETWORKING • TRAINING • PARTNERSHIP • FUN OTC Beauty Magazine September 2022

Celebrating Partnership in Action By Allyson Leak The 2022 Jinny Sales event was an opportunity for the world’s largest multicultural and ethnic beauty supply distributor to meet with key vendors for a weekend of business, empowerment, and fun. From August 5th to 7th in the heart of Chicago, the Jinny executive, purchasing, and sales teams met with over 48 vendor partners for a weekend of strategy, opportunity, relationship, and recreation at the fabulous Sable Hotel at Navy Pier. Crowned one of Chicago’s signature destinations, the Sable Hotel was the perfect destination because of its lush accommodations, unique dining experiences, and rooftop bar. The meeting with Jinny’s vendors was to build and strengthen programs, conduct presentations, and outline major initiatives for the remainder of 2022. The weekend kicked off with a welcome reception and the following morning, vendors had an opportunity to engage and update the Jinny Sales team on their latest products and developments. The evening was filled with an unforgettable boat tour on Lake Michigan with fireworks, dinner, and dancing on the Spirit of Chicago cruise. The weekend wrapped up with more sales initiatives, presentations, and a delicious lunch in the hotel’s Lirica dining area, all in the spirit of fun, networking, training, and partnership.

2022 JINNY SALES MEETING Eddie Jhin President at Jinny Corporation “After analyzing this year’s Chicago Sales Meeting, I thought the new format of our Jinny sales people going to each vendor was a much better format than the previous Jinny Sales Meetings, but I still think we can find ways to improve. We need to accomplish two things for one another, first, to spend a little more time engaging with each vendor and salesman. Secondly, to be able to bring back home what you have learned from one another so that we can teach others who have not gone to the event and also for the vendors to bring back new information to their own companies. So, this is something we will try to do in 2023”. 54

FRIDAY NIGHT

Randy Lee Assistant Director of Retail Sales, Luster Products Inc. “What a great meeting! Jinny has one of the best sales teams that I’ve ever seen. Our quick meetings were very engaging. Everyone was very attentive and knowledgeable, and suggested ideas on how we can grow the business together.”

Art Emm, Director of Purchasing, Jinny Beauty Supply “This was the most productive and interactive sales meeting I have ever been involved with. Our vendor partners and our sales teams were engaged in all aspects of the event; In the meeting rooms, on the boat, and at the Friday reception hosted by The Wella Company. The sharing of information and industry knowledge was flowing the entire weekend. We received great feedback from our vendor partners as well as the Jinny team about this event, especially the boat cruise and fireworks. Looking forward to our extended version next year in Colorado to allow more time for sharing and networking.”

The professionalism of the group was outstanding, only to be surpassed by the terrific time everyone had. The weekend was the perfect blend of fun and productivity. The meetings were exceptional as the Jinny team was engaged and asked thought-provoking questions. The views of Chicago on the evening cruise were breathtaking and the fireworks show was spectacular. We could not be more excited for the future of Jinny and StyleCraft and are blessed to work with such an incredible organization and family!”

OTC: How has your experience been with social media marketing? CW: I love social media marketing, but not just in a way to deliver messages, but receive them back from our consumers. We love to engage and learn from those who love our products. That relationship is extremely important to me and social media is a great way to connect.

OTC: How can OTC stores benefit from having your product lines in their stores? What suggestions do you have about store placement of your items? CW: Our brands are extremely popular. Having them in store and in highly visible places on shelf helps the consumer feel “at-home” and know that they are shopping in the right place. We move units.
