Is leather a good material for a hairdresser’s bag?
A hairdresser’s bag has to be able to take a lot of punishment; it’s going to be in use all day, every working day. It will frequently have sharp or angular objects put in and taken out and especially if you are a mobile hairdresser, it will need to be carried from place to place. Clearly, any hairdresser’s bag worth buying has to be strong and that’s why a leather hairdresser’s bag is usually the professional’s first choice. Full-grain leather will not rip and it is strong enough to withstand abrasion by sharp-edged equipment. It is a supple material and therefore comfortable to carry, unlike a sharp-edged metal box for example. It is also very stylish and it looks professional.
Is a hairdresser’s bag good for protecting equipment?
Specialist equipment requires a specialist bag; otherwise, your expensive equipment may be damaged. A hairdresser’s bag is designed to store a hairdresser’s equipment so that it is protected and stored in the most compact way.
What should you keep in your hairdresser’s bag?
To a certain extent, this will depend on your personal style and expertise and whether you are salon based or mobile, but there is undoubtedly a range of basic equipment, which no serious professional would want to be without.
Combs & brushes
Clips & grips
Razor & blades
Are leather hairdresser’s bags durable?
Leather has been used for centuries because of its durability. Full-grain leather is strong and supple, it will not tear and it is resistant to abrasion. When choosing a leather hairdresser’s bag, ensure that you choose a bag made from full-grain leather and that the stitching and fittings are of high quality. A quality leather hairdresser’s bag should last a lifetime.
Are leather hairdresser’s bags waterproof?
Leather is a natural organic material and as such it is permeable, however, the natural oils in full-grain leather will easily repel the quantity of rainfall that you are likely to encounter in your day-to-day work.

Branding is an important part of a hairdresser’s business and customers should feel like they’re having a luxurious experience at the hands of a professional. This means that image is very important, from décor and treatment range to details such as what the hairdresser is wearing. A leather hairdresser apron, belt or kit bag is not only stylish and professional but, if looked after properly, will last a lifetime and still look great.
It’s not just at a hairdresser’s salon where branding is important. The rise of vintage-style barbershops has shown that men also enjoy an all-around experience when getting a trim. Just as with a hairdresser’s salon, it’s the details that make the experience.
