In order for a kids salon to succeed, emphasis should be placed on running the kids hair salon legally. There are number of rules and regulations for the salon to comply by otherwise there will be consequences to follow.
Importance of having a trained staff:
The onus is on the salon owner to carefully hire barbers. They should hire barbers that have the expertise, experience and skills for cutting kids hair. A barber would have to deal with kids of various backgrounds for instance there are kids who are too hyper and tend to move a lot and then there are kids who are afraid of getting their hair cut. A good barber is one who knows the art of calming fidgety customers. It is imperative the barber uses the right technique for kids who move their head a lot otherwise it could end up bloody.
Taking medical conditions seriously: There are kids whose hair needs to be cut with extreme care especially if it’s for a medical/surgical reason. A cochlear implant patient does not get his or her cut post surgery due to the processor being located on his or her scalp. There will come a when the patient will eventually have to cut his or her hair when it becomes too long or too curly. The onus is on parents of such individuals to inform the barber of how to go about cutting the hair. Usually the barber is just required to shorten the hair a little bit in a way the processor is not prominent. Also the barber needs to keep away from the place where the patient got operated from which is right next to the outer ear. It is the responsibility of salon owners to stay upto date so that they can hire barbers with utmost care. This sets a great hair salon apart from an average one.
Failure in hiring a professional staff: Should a barber use improper techniques and end up cutting the skin, this would not bode well for the salon. It would just get costly for salon owners in such circumstances. For instance parents have every right to sue the salon. Apart from running the salon, the owner would have to hire a lawyer to battle it out in the courts. This could lead to the firm’s reputation being tarnished and forcibly shutdown.
