Maintaining a healthy and clean environment helps your tools last longer. There are also individual requirements from State Board Licensure regulations that you need to comply with if you run a hair salon. In addition, clean tools are essential to performance and help prevent infection. Professional hair cutting shears and razors can penetrate the skin, and if they’re clean, that cuts down on the risk of infection. Here are handy cleaning tips that you can follow.
Clean Your Tools
Clean the shears every day before or after every use. Make sure there aren’t any hair
strands caught in the shears. Wipe off any excess hair product. Also, don’t switch from one client to another without trading your shears in for a new one. It’s important that you use a clean pair with every client.
Water doesn’t always get the job done. If there’s still some residue left on the blades or any part of the shears, apply a little rubbing alcohol in a cotton ball and use that to remove any traces of hair styling aids. Do this until you’re certain that your shears are clean.
