I was looking to replace my old hairdressing apron after about more than a decade of use. After having previously used it professionally, I wanted a high quality replacement... even if I wasn't willing to pay a high-quality price.
I bought this unit skeptically but was pleasantly surprised. The stitching is perfect (at least on the visible side) and I found no significant flaws in the quality or stitching whatsoever. The "arm" exits are well made and conveniently placed. The neck closure is by far my favorite. It's much better than velcro, button or any other method. I really wish all capes had it.
As far as one recommendation, I'd definitely urge you to consider applying a waterproofing spray to it. Not only will it make it more stain and water resistant, but it also gave the fabric a bit of weight making it feel like a thicker, higher quality material. Definitely worth it.
All in all, this was a good buy. It's not really luxury professional quality, but for the home gamer it's definitely as good as is worth paying for. I'm happy with my purchase.
Great quality. My clients live that it has opening for their hands to still use their phones. I saw reviews about problems keeping it closed but I just secure both sides and it works like a charm for me. Great buy I will be purchasing again.
The slide "clasp" creates too much bulk at the neck to effectively cut hair that is longer than someone's nape. The cape is extremely long in the front, covering shoes when sitting. However, the back pieces barely go over the back of the chair and sometimes don't even come together, leaving an opening for the hair to get on clothes. It's very thick, good material, but the design is way off.
I love it I love it I love it I love it!! It’s held up way beyond other capes that I’ve spent money on. I would definitely by more than 1 because it’s such a good cape I wouldn’t want them to sell out and them I’m stuck with one. I chose the purple/blue/... pretty dope colored cape. Especially when light reflects off it. It’s large, I cut men hair and my taller and heavier client is covered above the ankle and the cape falls over the chair without needing to pull it over all the time. Great cape I love it. And it keeps them cool compared to other capes. The added holes are a plus on top of still keeping hair off my clients.
What does it clasp the way it does? There was no picture of the clasp. These aren’t button snaps. The sides slide together, but one is sewn upside down so you have to twist the cape. Which leads to it not sitting against the neck, making hair fall down their backs. It Sucks.
I noticed while using this cape that hair was getting on my clients. When I compared my black cape to the silver one another stylist ordered, it became apparent the hand holes were backward on mine. Unfortunately, too much time had passed to return the product.
I ordered 2 of these awhile back. I liked the elastic & metal clasp neck closure & the hand holes for clients. I liked them so much, I ordered 2 more which are still very tardy in arriving, so I ordered 3 more of the purple ones which arrived promptly & they are beautiful!!! The only problem I have is the stitching along the neck elastic gets snagged in my comb sometimes so I have to be careful about not combing across it.
Way too tight around the neck. Even on the loosest setting on an average size/weight client creates a slight choking sensation that I don’t want my clients to experience. Pass on these capes, sis. They are pretty though! But seeing the whole thing across a client seems to distract from the hair service I am doing. I’m returning the two I bought.
The food news is it has a nice texture and pretty cheap. Gets the job done. Mine has issues with the neck clips. They dont hold well. All the hairs slip inside the body if you dont tie it with a separate clip. Also it is relatively short. Have something to cover your pants or wear short shorts, if you dont want to mess up your clothing.
