Sensory-Friendly Haircuts with Salon Penn

When I first learned that my child is sensitive to haircuts, it sparked a passion to create a service that catered to individuals with sensory sensitivities. Reflecting on my years of experience in salon settings, I realized the need for a different approach when servicing these clients. This realization led me to commit to further educating myself on autism and sensory processing disorder through various platforms, such as certification courses and discussions with experts and parents.

One unique aspect of my salon is its location at the back of a house. With its separate entrance and no noise from blow dryers or other stylists, it offers a truly personal setting for our clients. This allows them to feel at ease and fully immersed in their haircutting experience without distractions.

I am dedicated to constantly improving my knowledge and techniques in order to serve those with sensory sensitivities better. I aim to ensure that every client feels confident and happy with their new hairstyle.
