How To: Set Up Your At-Home Hair Salon

Mar 27. 2020 by Shaver Shop Team

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?


Start the Conversation Early

If you have kids, start the conversation a few days beforehand. Children can have a lot of anxiety around getting their hair cut. Giving them time beforehand allows them to ask questions, helping to calm their nerves. Also try to refrain from using the word ‘cut’ as this gives off a negative connotation. Lead with ‘style’ or ‘trim’ to keep the speak more positive.


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.


Choosing the right clipper or trimmer

There are many clippers and trimmers on the market, however we’ve narrowed down the choices to make the decision easier for you.
