Autistic Hair Appointments
Hairdressing for people with autism
Families with children or adults might encounter challenges during hair salon visits. Sometimes, persuading them to visit the salon is an uphill battle, met with outright refusal or an aversion to anyone touching their hair. The entire experience can be overwhelming, leaving both caregivers and individuals stressed, vowing to avoid a repeat.
At Wisteria Avenue, we understand these difficulties and have successfully supported children, young people, and adults that find salon experiences challenging. Our approach prioritises building trust, ensuring everyone feels empowered and relaxed. Each person is treated uniquely, allowing us to form genuine connections and understand their preferences.
Before resigning to these challenges, many families facing similar situations have found solace in our approach. We invite you to explore their experiences and consider Wisteria Avenue as an autism-friendly hair salon that values individuality and fosters a calm, supportive environment for everyone.
Is this you?
The reassuring news is that our salon has successfully aided numerous families and adults navigating similar challenges. We prioritise a welcoming, inclusive environment where everyone feels respected and understood. We value the unique needs of each individual, striving to ensure the salon experience is stress-free and enjoyable.
For those seeking an autism-friendly hair salon that celebrates diversity, promotes understanding, and provides tailored support, Wisteria Avenue is here to help.
Can we help?
If you feel that you need additional support, we can help you to feel more comfortable or there are areas where our Stylists can better support your experience with us we would welcome you to reach out.
Whilst you are welcome at any time across our opening hours, if you feel the day-to-day salon environment may be a hurdle at this stage, we presently dedicate specific time slots throughout the week to autism-friendly appointments. In early 2024, we also hope to complete works to an area of the salon specifically designed to accommodate more autism-friendly appointments allowing us to make available even more time slots.
When it comes to salon visits we are here to support your needs. At Wisteria Avenue, we comprehend the challenges young families and adults encounter while seeking hair care for individuals who may find the experience distressing or overwhelming.
We specialise in catering to diverse needs, including those linked with autism. Our compassionate approach allows us to address specific requests or accommodations that could make the salon visit more comfortable. Be it sensory considerations, communication, or patience in understanding individual preferences, our team is here to offer support.

Not at all!
We recognise that each person is an individual with their own specific needs. We welcome every client as an individual and are happy to work with you.
All we ask is that if there is anything we can help with to be as welcoming as possible is to let us know in advance of any booking.
It tends to vary from client to client. We would encourage you to make us aware the first time to ensure that not only your first visit is relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Additionally, this ensures that any following visits are as consistent and managed by Wisteria Avenue and your Stylist long-term.
Our salon has taken measures to support our clients gaining valuable insight from existing clients and the Autistic Society to ensure we can be as welcoming as possible.
We would also welcome feedback and most importantly if there is anything specific that you require for an upcoming appointment or you are considering a booking, let us know and we can adapt our service.
In most cases, yes.
Before booking let us know if there is something you are mindful of, concerned by or wish to ask to support your appointment.
