Autism-friendly hairdressing service

Sheffield Autistic Society have learned of a service which may be of particular interest to families with autistic children or children with an autistic spectrum condition.  We contacted Twisted Scissors of High Street Rotherham who told us:

“Our quiet Sunday takes place the first Sunday of every month. We provide a longer time frame and plenty of patience for children on the spectrum.
Our aim is to offer a service inviting to all the family, we eliminate noise and smells.  There’s toys to play with and plenty of sweets and refreshments.

This service is about gaining trust and ultimately getting your child to a point where they feel happy to get that haircut.  Sometimes it does take a while before we can gain that trust and although we can’t promise you guys a haircut, you do get our time and interaction which in turn will build that trust up.”
