What is a Barber Cape?

Barber Capes are staples in a barbershop or salon. Being covered in a barber cape is a part of the experience, especially for children that are getting their first haircut. But as they say, not all capes are created equal. There is actually a lot of thought and professional experience that goes into King Midas capes. This may sound surprising but there is really more to an effective barber cape than a piece of cloth to drape over your client.

Barber Cape Materials

Barber capes need to be waterproof, chemical resistant, fade proof, dye proof, and lightweight. 

Ease in care and cleaning is also a contributing factor for the selection of these materials. Since these materials are waterproof and dye proof, hair and dirt won’t stick to the cape’s surface. In case of contact with hair products and dyes, these synthetic fabrics only need to machine wash and then drip-dry the cape. There is no need for harsh bleach or other special detergents.

 

Barber Cape Designs

Barbers and hairstylist prioritize utility over design when it comes to capes. But King Midas combines reliability in performance with aesthetically pleasing designs that represents the hair culture and enhances the ambiance of your establishment. 

Because of the versatility of its materials, barber capes can come in different colors, textures, and finishes. The most important design feature, though are the closures. There are barber cape brands that use Velcro (the most popular), string-tie, clips, or elastic neckbands. Velcro, for example, while convenient causes cut hair to become trapped in between its two sides. Elastic (metal hooks), can dig into the neck skin and are very tight around the neck and uncomfortable during a haircut. King Midas Capes, on the other hand, utilize specialized snap button closures. This type of closure is the most reliable and provides a neatly concealed safe and secure closure. These buttons address issues that come with the use of all other types of closures. King Midas Empire Capes, on the other hand, utilize snap button (snap fastener) closures. This type of closure is more reliable and lasts longer and also provides a neatly concealed closure for your neck strips.
