Find More About Salon Capes

Hair salon capes do come in a wide range of sizes, shapes, material types, and a multitude of styles and patterns. If you are just starting out in the hair business, or maybe you just want to replace your existing hair capes, we have got you covered with the different types of hair salon capes and how you can choose the right one.

Make sure your hairdressing cutting capes aren’t just for their obvious purpose, but also for comfort and style. They should also be simple and quick to apply to your client, and of course, hygienic.

Cape Fabrics

When choosing cutting or chemical capes, take a hard look at the fabric. There are woven capes with a fabric blend, like polyester with microfiber, and also solid fabric materials such as nylon. But not all capes are suitable for both cutting and chemicals!

For chemical capes, look for fabric with Teflon coating to resist strong solutions stemming from hair color, perm solutions, and bleach. These cape types will often be anti-static, water-repellent, bleach, and color proof in dark colors, and will stand up to harsh chemicals for years of wear.

Capes with waterproof polyurethane coating have the strongest chemical proofing. They also offer the highest level of protection and durability. Remember still to keep comfort in mind when you decide on a fabric blend for your hair-cutting cape.

Also, take note of how easy it is to maintain a cape made from a certain fabric. High-maintenance fabrics can cost you more time, energy, and money. However, don’t choose fabrics that are cheap either.

Other things you need to consider when choosing the right hair salon cape are the material, how much it weighs, and how it is fastened. Polyester capes are very durable, lightweight and often have several types of fit and styles to choose from.
