Preparing for a haircut

Haircuts are not always fun for children as the unfamiliarity can be overwhelming. If its a first ever haircut in a salon there’s a new environment, a stranger who will cut their hair and your child has no idea how long the haircut will take. Even after the first visit, you may find that your child dislikes the buzz of the clippers, fears scissors near their head or they may dislike having their hair touched.

The stylists at Noah’s Ark are experienced with both the common and unusual fears and behaviours which many children experience. Katrina shares her helpful hints as to best prepare your child for their visit to the salon.

Consultations help us make the the most of your visit

Before you visit…

  • Complete the consultation form we send you so we can tailor your booking and understand any concerns you may have before you arrive
  • If you think it would help, arrange a visit so your child can familiarise themselves with the salon.
  • If it’s a first salon haircut, take away the mystery by reading storybooks about getting haircuts or through play, giving pretend haircuts to each other.
  • You can try getting your hair cut first and bring your child with you to watch
  • Schedule an appointment at a time of day your child is most calm – we can help by recommending a time when the children’s salon is quieter if this helps.
  • Consider what type of hairstyle may best benefit your child’s circumstances, e.g. a ‘buzz cut’ with clippers may be best suited than one that involves scissors.
  • Arrive in plenty of time for your appointment. Traffic delays, difficulties in parking (especially on market days!) can lead to stressed parents and late arrivals.

Once you’ve arrived at the salon, Katrina suggests…

  • Keep your child focused on something else by bringing a preferred toy, book or video to watch. We also have items available to share including tablets, TV and toys.
  • Your child can sit in your lap if needed – let us know what you think will work best
  • If the noise of the scissors or clippers bothers your child, speak to us about this – we don’t have to use both.
  • A private room is available if it helps to be apart from other families in Noah’s Ark and we can provide covers for the mirror on request.

Create a routine by visiting the same stylist on a regular basis

After the haircut:

  • Bring another top that your child can change into after their haircut – tiny hair remnants around the neckline can make someone itch like crazy!
  • Create a routine by visiting the same stylist on a regular basis.  The familiarity and consistency will help build a greater level of trust and help to alleviate those fears.
  • Provide a reward directly after the haircut. We provide tasty treats for our youngest clients, but you could follow up the haircut with a trip to the playground, a visit to the grandparents or something else that they would love

It’s worth remembering that every child’s behaviour whilst having a haircut differs. We hope our suggestions help make your child’s next haircut less stressful or scary.

Homes of Football

Burnley v Sheffield United
The Winder family watching Burnley v Sheffield United at Bosun's Barbers, Rawtenstall

Back in December legendary football photographer, Stuart Roy Clarke arrived at the Bosun’s Barbers to photograph Tony and his family support the Clarets in their 1-0 victory against Sheffield United.

 

Tony, a Burnley Football Club fan & season ticket holder thought the opportunity to participate in the photoshoot was a prank at first. However, once he was convinced it was real, he suggested that Stuart join the family in the barber’s chairs – the ideal location to watch the game straight after work.

 

You can see Tony and members of his family in the images as part of a new outdoor exhibition, dubbed The Homes of Football, at the National Football Museum in Manchester

 

Harvey the dog even joins in to watch the game!

The exhibition showcases Clarke as he turns his famous camera lens inside the homes (and barbershops)of football fans across the country as they have supported their teams from afar.

 

The photography series captures the authentic imagery of supporters from every Premier League club, across Amazon Prime Video’s 30 fixtures in the 2020/21 season.

 

The full line-up can be seen as a free outdoor public exhibition outside of the National Football Museum, Manchester from Thursday 27 May. The exhibition brings to life the happiness, heartbreak and jubilation of football support across the 2020/21 season with visitors able to scan QR codes to hear the stories behind each image as told by the families themselves.

Online booking help

We’ve searched high and low for a booking system that works for families…. but we couldn’t find the perfect solution. So here are our tips and tricks when booking multiple appointments for families.

 

When accounts share a mobile number

 

When you log in, the system will show the account with the shared mobile number that has the most recent booking. Or if you’re creating a new account, the first booking will be associated with the name you create the account with.

 

When this happens how do you book for someone else?

 

Booking when the account shows the contact details of another member of your family

 

If you login and the client is another member of your family, you should amend the booking when you reach the Enter your details screen. Simply click ‘booking for someone else’ and enter the details of the person you are booking for.

 

What about when I want to book appointments for multiple members of my family?

 

When booking more than one appointment, for multiple members of the same family, you need to create separate bookings (otherwise all the services are booked under one client).

 

Book the first service, attached to the individual who is requesting the service.

 

When you have completed the booking, restart the booking process. Select the next service you wish to book. When you reach the Enter your details screen. Simply click ‘booking for someone else’ and enter the details of the person you are booking for.

 

Repeat this process until all the bookings are made ? .

 

If all else fails, please contact the salon on 01706 217129 and we’ll be able to help.
