Back To Work Essentials For Barbers & Hairdressers

As barbershops and salons ease into getting back to work after a long lockdown, make sure you’re fully prepared with your back to work essentials! From must-have maintenance and hygiene products to ramping up your retail game, here’s a guide to help you prepare.

Wahl hygiene products

Must-have maintenance and hygiene products

Hygiene will continue to be a priority for barbershops and salons for the foreseeable, so ensure that you have plenty of products for maintaining a safe and clean environment. The Wahl range has everything covered from personal hygiene to tools and equipment. Using matching products will help to keep the shop looking neat and tidy for welcoming back your customers. It’s a good idea to have a set on each station for quick and easy clean-downs. Not only will these products keep your tools clean, it will help them last longer saving you money in the long run and ensuring you get the best cutting results.

A must-have to quickly wipe down all surfaces including stations and chairs. The 400ml Antibacterial Surface Spray is a fast and effective disinfectant, killing 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and yeasts. We recommend spraying the surface and leaving for around 15 minutes, while you get on with cleaning your tools. Then come back and wipe away any excess.

Hygienic Clipper Spray

An essential post-cut routine should include disinfecting your clippers, trimmers and any other tools used on your client. The Hygienic Clipper Spray works to sanitise your blades within 15 minutes, so once you’ve finished with one tool, simply spray it and ensure there’s time to wipe it down ahead of your next client.

Blade Ice

A staple product for all busy barbershops and salons. Blade Ice can be used during the cut to keep your blades cool. Alongside the cooling effect, Blade Ice also helps to lubricate the blade and clean away dirt and debris. The result is reduced friction, less heat and blade wear without a heavy residue of oil. Of course, you’ll still need to apply disinfecting products for a thorough clean and Blade Oil for proper lubrication.

Blade Oil

Use Blade Oil on your blades regularly to maintain their cutting precision. We recommend oiling at the start and end of each day. When you’re using additional cleaning products, it’s a good idea to re-apply oil as the final step as you may have lost some of the lubrication in the cleaning process. Keeping your blades well lubricated will ultimately keep them going for longer, so you won’t need to replace them as frequently.
