Tricky Trims

Many children find getting a haircut overwhelming but at Tricky Trims our cool and calm approach has a huge success rating.

Our first step towards a client getting a haircut is to build a trusting relationship between the hairdresser, and the child via goal setting with the parent(s) of the child. The goals can be as simple as a meet and greet and getting them in the door.

Once this is achieved, we move onto the next goal until we complete a full haircut.

As a support worker at Tricky Trims Jess works with children that have specific sensory and anxiety needs.

Additional support options:

  • Social story
  • First & then visuals
  • Movies
  • Sensory tools
