Posture & Ergonomics Behind the Chair

Jul 12, 2021

Working as a Stylist means long hours on your feet and using your hands as tools; you’re your work. When a Stylist completes a shift and leaves the cutting floor each day, their body can feel fatigued, achy, and sometimes – just plain exhausted. Sport Clips Haircuts understands that ensuring the health and comfort of all Stylists is paramount to providing a positive work environment. We pay attention to everything from anti-fatigue flooring that provides extra cushion when Stylists are cutting to European shampoo bowls that allow Stylists to wash hair from behind without stooping over to ongoing education on proper posture and ergonomics of haircutting. Sport Clips Team Members Dorothy-Anne Lacy and Katie Kenkel, and industry partner, William Hyde of Shark Fin Shears, share about posture and ergonomics.
