Every day, we hear stories of haircut trauma endured by those with sensory sensitivity, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Sensory Processing Disorder.
Inspired by all the parents who shared their experiences, we created Calming Clipper to make haircuts manageable, gentle, and even fun!
Anyone can give a great haircut with Calming Clipper. Its patented design allows anyone, from first-timers to experienced haircutters, to give a professional cut in the comfort of home.
The barbershop can be an unfamiliar place for children. And it's a pain to reschedule if they're not in the mood to go.
With Calming Clipper, haircut on their schedule, from the comfort of their favorite place, whether it's on the couch or in the bathtub.
Calming Clipper comes with seven guide combs, like the ones found on a traditional electric clipper (but without the buzz!). Feel confident that you’ll get the length you want, while maintaining an even cut all-around.
For your comfort, we've included two sizes of gel finger inserts, so you can customize your snugness level.
Children with Sensory Processing Disorder or Autism Spectrum Disorder are often overwhelmed by the world around them. This is called hypersensitivity, and some examples of sensitivities are:
In mid-2017, we began manufacturing Calming Clipper without a serrated blade because it cuts a larger variety of hair textures more easily.
So check your clipper: does it have a serrated lower blade? If it does, you may sharpen the upper blade with a traditional shear sharpener. We don't recommend sharpening the serrated blade.
Not at all. Dirty hair will dull blades over time and so our professional advice is to wash hair first. However, we believe that comfort and happiness is ALL that matters, so we recommend paying attention to the many other needs of your child (e.g., time of day, stress level) to determine if it's a good time for a haircut.
