Trimming and clipping hair at home has now become the new normal. So what are the best tools you need to create that salon experience at home?

Set Up a Shop

During these times of self-isolation, it can be a fun idea to create your own salon at home. If you have children set up an area where you can occupy your child, keeping them busy so they are less likely to move about or outside in the fresh air, which reduces mess. Have a few secret weapons up your sleeve like their favourite treat or reward and dress them in a cape to not only help with the mess but really round out creating that salon experience.
