Welcome to my website

I am a qualified barber/hairdresser and lecturer at Cardiff and Vale College.
I also specialise in working with people with additional needs.

My Story

Hi my name is Helen Williams and welcome to my website.

I’m very excited about the work that I’m doing and I hope both you and your child will become a part of my experience.

I have over ten years of experience in the hairdressing and barbering industry and have been lecturing at Cardiff and Vale College for over seven years. I am proud of my position there as I have had the pleasure of working with learners with additional needs, including learners with autism.

I am aware of how challenging a haircut can be for both parent and client. I offer my unique service to all ages and in the comfort of your own home.

Throughout my career I have heard shocking stories of parents finding it increasingly difficult to find a barber or hairdresser to cut their child’s hair, as one mother of a child whose hair I recently cut said she had been to three barbers who had refused to cut his hair because of his additional needs.

I am proud to offer a service whereby my clients not only gets a professional haircut but do so in a non hostile environment.

By coming to you and the safe sanctuary of your home I take time and employ techniques I use in my daily work as a lecturer to bond with my clients and put him/her at ease.  I am very passionate about my work with learners with additional needs and the empathy I have with them is key in the interaction. Not only does this relax my client and make the experience a more pleasurable one but will be remembered by them, therefore making subsequent haircuts a routine.

My expertise with autistic clients has made me aware of how difficult a haircut can be for them. So for this I use sensory scissors which reduce sensory overload, especially around the ears.

I hope you agree that I am offering a unique and caring service.

Fill out a form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can, thank you.

Only the best

I use sensory scissors and clippers to ensure your child is comfortable, these make less sound and adapt perfectly to children that do a lot of wriggling when they’re getting their haircut.
