At Wecasa, our role is to ensure the quality of the sessions. To achieve this, we have created best practices videos to establish a standardised level of quality.

So, what do these best practices in hairdressing involve?

Here's what client love!

📝 When a customer books a hair technique (e.g., colouring, highlights, perm...), we recommend contacting them to find out more about their expectations and ensure the feasibility of their request. It's good to avoid any misunderstandings.

🧼 Upon arrival at your client's home, wash your hands and sanitise your equipment. This is reassuring and shows you care for hygiene and equipment maintenance.

👘 1 hairdressing cape per client is the minimum.

🧹 As the session ends, the floor is usually covered in hair. Don't forget to pick it up; it's part of the service.

The little extras to create the "WoW" effect?

🪞 We recommend taking a mirror with you. What's better for showcasing your work and gathering your client's feedback?

📸 Remember the shampoo chair! It's crucial to wash your client's hair or rinse products out without getting water everywhere.

These are recommendations, not obligations. We created those based on extensive client feedback. Trust us; you'll see the difference if you follow our recommendation.

Would you like to buy a shampoo chair for your appointments but are unsure how to choose?

We're here to help you see things more clearly! 👇

In a traditional hairdressing salon or for a mobile hairdresser, purchasing a shampoo chair is not to be taken lightly. It's important to consider the essential criteria to make the best choice. It's up to you to determine what's most important.

  • Essential elements of the shampoo chair

    The shampoo chair must meet several requirements, and it's essential to ensure you invest in quality equipment. Since this equipment is used multiple times daily, it must be practical, sturdy, and easy to maintain. It should also meet the needs of a clientele seeking comfort, relaxation, and well-being.

    There are numerous models, such as inflatable basins, pedestal basins, or even wash basins, that adapt to chairs. You have plenty of options to choose from.

  • Define your needs

    Before investing in a shampoo basin, you must define your needs: what comfort level do you want to offer your clients? How much space do you have to store it? What are the essential features? What's your budget? These questions will help you target the perfect equipment to suit your needs.

  • Material of the shampoo basin

    Shampoo basins can be made of plastic, glass, or even ceramic. Plastic is the most common due to its many advantages: easy to clean, lightweight, and convenient to move. For a basin that isn't meant to be moved, glass and ceramic are the best options.

    In addition to being aesthetic, they are high-quality. For at-home hairdressing, plastic is the most common material. We recommend you opt for a sturdy material that can last a long time.

  • The mobile wash basin

    Specially designed to meet the needs of mobile hairdressers, the mobile wash basin is particularly appreciated. It allows you to offer a high-quality service, the same level as in a traditional hair salon. You can usually adjust the tilt and height. Therefore, they are practical as they can adapt to any chair or seat and the clients' sizes to ensure their comfort. They are also foldable and portable—kind of the perfect accessory for mobile hairdressers.
