Beginning the cape, together with the Honorable Mention! It’s not just about protecting your clients’ clothing from dye hair, and water. Having your own cape (provided the salon lets it), shows you are committed to your own profession and possess a feeling of personality. Providing additional flair and excitement speaks to both mature customers together with of course the children(let them pretend they’re a pampered Superb Guy!), which may translate into higher settlement.
Thirdly are dryers and irons. Agreeably a large category, flat and curling irons, hair dryers, and crimpers and rollers have their spot in your tool box undoubtedly. When you have a favorite which works better, more power to you personally while the salon generally provides these electric wonders!
Second are the brushing utensils, brushes and combs. They are in your hands all day long and it’s best to locate some which are comfortable and work best for you personally. A port, paddle, cushion, teasing, ceramic, styling, – it matters. Same goes for broad and fine tooth, styling, teasing, straightening, detangling, and straightening hair combs and picks. Locate a comfy, well balanced comb and brush and be sure to sanitize them (eww).
Most important are the scissors. Sheers, cutting scissors, clippers, and shavers. The quintessential, and highly iconized, “tool of the trade”. The Dr. has his stethoscope, an author their favourite pen. An Artist has a favorite brush, a Major Leaguer has his baseball bat, an expert has his hairdressers in peterborough wand. This really is where skimping having a cheap pair of scissors will haunt you. Hairstylist, hairdresser, or any barber will support the day that a quality pair of scissors and shears will make or break. Perhaps not in the first trim, or a couple hours into the day, but your fingers and customers will thank you at the end of the day. Even in the best hands, poor scissors with not provide acceptable results. Michelangelo didn’t finger paint the Sistine Chapel, and you must not use inferior scissors, in the event you need great results.
A week’s paycheck may be traded for a top of the line pair of shears, though not necessary. Jaguar, Yasaka, Joewell, Nova, and Matsuzaki will be the Lamborghini of shears. All these are probably unobtainable to recent grad, part time hairdresser, or the pupil. If possible, try and get a feel for the scissors before purchasing, and consistently look for a pair that can be readily cleaned, re-sharpened, and, most of all, are not comfortless.
