The SEN Barber is a bespoke barbering service that caters solely to those with SEN & Autism. If you have personally struggled to visit a traditional barbershop, or have struggled to get your child’s hair cut, then the SEN Barber is the service for you. Having a child with Autism can mean a trip to the barbers can be very traumatic for both parent and child. So, take the stress out of getting a haircut and visit The SEN Barber.
The SEN Barber has 10+ years experience working with young people, it being both a passion and a calling. In that time The SEN Barber has come to one simple conclusion, people with additional needs have to truly trust you, and trust is at the very heart of the SEN Barber service.
The home-studio, affectionately known as ‘The Barber Cave’ is an unashamedly dedicated SEN space. The studio can be adapted to every client’s individual needs. Meaning the lighting levels, the music and the beverages are all down to the user’s individual needs, making The SEN Barber an absolutely bespoke service. User’s can even enjoy a movie of their choice!!!! The service also includes an hour and a half booking, so there is no need to wait…Simply arrive, enjoy a totally bespoke environment and relax.
Animal-Assisted therapy is also a big part of The SEN Barber service. He has chickens which some clients enjoy feeding and holding prior to their haircuts in order to help them acclimatise to their surroundings. And users always go home with a handful of eggs!
The SEN Barber also offers a mobile service meaning that for those who find traveling, or who have mobility issues, can enjoy a haircut in the comfort of their own home.
“I have had the pleasure of working with VIPS, delivering haircuts for some of their clients. I look forward to helping more of VIPS users to look and feel their absolute best and being proud of their hair and personal appearance.”
