Leaving your current salon is tough, scary and a little nerve racking. We know this and appreciate your hesitation. There may be a hundred reasons why you want to leave or stay, but we know one thing is for certain... you are at least intrigued enough to be reading this. That said, there are still a lot of unknowns and questions you must have, so we’ve tried to answer some of the obvious ones (the best we can)...

Family is Important! Your family is important! At OT HairCutters we understand that your family comes first. Family time is important and we respect that weekends can be challenging. It is our goal that no stylist works two Saturdays in a row unless they choose. However, we would be lying if we suggested that this will not happen. There will be various community events and opportunities for you to grow your clientele, and many of these will happen on weekends... effort = reward(s). There will be times when your teammate may need you to cover for them or for you. In either case every stylist will have two days off in a row, per week, and of course we will always be fair and compassionate.
|Our hours of operations are:||Monday – Wednesday||9 am – 7 pm|
|Thursday & Friday||9 am – 8 pm|
|Saturday||9 am – 5 pm|
The BIG misconception... OT HairCutters is designed and targeted to provide adult male and female clientele with an exciting alternative to the everyday. The interior is upscale comprising of stained oak, stainless steel, vinyl/ceramic flooring etc.; our goal is to provide a comfortable, engaging, entertaining, adult-oriented environment. That said there is no question that kids will be attracted to OT, but we expect they will comprise of only 10 – 15% overall.
OT will never directly advertise to kids, but of course they are welcome clients along with their parents.
Over 5,800 hockey mom’s in PEI. Minor Hockey would be nothing without the “Hockey Mom”. In fact there are over 5,800 hockey moms on PEI, and coincidentally, PEI has the most registered female hockey players per capita in Canada at 1,000. Female hockey and sports is huge on PEI and OT HairCutters speaks to their passion as much as it speaks to men.
The Ladies Locker is a designated space specifically designed to cater to our female clientele, a space where they can kick their shoes off and take a moment for themselves. Decorated for comfort, relaxation and entertainment, the Ladies Locker includes upscale flooring and furnishings, a 32” flat-screen TV, Netbook with internet access, and free beverages and a selection of coffee. A product display will also be included accompanied by educational materials to help you increase your product commissions. Bottom line, your female clientele are an important part of our business and marketing efforts. In fact, we are working with K-Rock to run a “Hockey Mom of the Week” promotion throughout the fall by giving away a full chemical treatment per week... we will help you grow your client base!
A massive, organized market. Most salons have to market to the masses in the hopes of getting the few. OT HairCutters has a distinct advantage over its competitors because our market is organized, as all sports are organized. This provides us with direct and meaningful access to a huge market of hockey and sports enthusiasts. This combined with our commitment to actively participating in our community; we will provide you with a variety of opportunities to get in front of new, prospect clients.
We have formed a partnership with HockeyPEI, Future Shop and the PEI Rocket (to-date) to help support our grand opening campaign. HockeyPEI and the PEI Rocket have agreed to forward our promotional materials to their entire database (approximately 4,000) hockey players, parents and fans. Future Shop has agreed to distribute our promotional materials at their cash counter, and we are just getting started.
If you want it, we will support it! There are a number of ways we will help you improve your skill set. We have quarterly training sessions planned that will provide up-to-date technique and product training. We will also be providing some general barbering and hair tattooing training and if that is not enough, each OT stylist will also have the opportunity to earn training credits. No matter what skill level you are at, OT HairCutters will support any effort to improve on your skills. The more skills the OT team possesses the higher quality service we can provide our clients.
Opportunities no other salon can offer. We can confidently say that there is NO other salon on the Island that will provide greater advancement opportunities than OT HairCutters. We are currently working with a number of industry experts who believe that OT HairCutters has the potential to be the next Tim Horton’s, after all you would be hard pressed to find one community in Canada that does not have a strong, vibrant and emotional connection to hockey.
Our goal is 350 locations across Canada in the next 8 years, aggressive yes, but we have the knowledge, expertise, determination and support to make this happen. As the franchise chain grows we will need a variety of positions filled, perhaps you are on the training team that flies to Alberta to help set up and train new franchise, or perhaps you work with the technical team ensure our franchisees are provided with the most up-to-date product and service knowledge. No matter which way you cut it, those stylists that get in early, work hard and are dedicated to the growth and success of OT will grow and advance as OT grows and advances. There are truly endless possibilities.
Work should be fun, shouldn’t it??? One of the core values of OT HairCutters is “having fun”, after all we spend approximately 35% of our lives working and frankly put, life is too short to not have fun. That said there are a number of ways that OT brings fun to life. First and foremost the essence of our concept is centered around sports, which is fun. The OT environment is a vibrant, energetic atmosphere that induces fun. Our team oriented stylists and OT ownership will encourage a fun working environment. And last but not least, an active role and participation in community causes and events.
We believe strongly in supporting and actively participating in the communities we reside. Not only will this provide you with an opportunity to grow your client base and support your community, but it will also get you out of the shop on a regular basis. Routine is boring and our active involvement in the community and aggressive marketing will provide you an opportunity to spice up an otherwise routine driven industry.
We are building a franchise and your input is critical. We value everyone’s opinion and as we grow the OT franchise we will need your input to ensure we offer our franchisees the best possible product, training, and support. You can play a vital role in the development of OT HairCutters, something that no other salon can offer. Your input will make a difference and will help to shape a national franchise. Will you have a voice? Absolutely, it is critical.
Team first is my job! As the president of OT HairCutters I’d like to believe that I am not a jerk. In fact, I realize that without a strong team of stylists I am nothing. My team is the most important thing to me, your success is my success and I will do everything in power to fair, honest and support my staff both personally and professionally. If you work hard, take pride in your work, and are a team player, the work jerk will never come up. I have made a promise to support my team of stylists and fulfilling that promise is my job.
