Salon apparel may be constructed from a single fabric or woven into a fabric blend, such as polyester with microfiber. Fabrics are woven together for comfort or to add a feature, such as static electricity resistance. Some apron and cape fabrics get their special features from coatings, allowing them to resist water, stains, and wrinkles. Fabrics are also treated in order to resist strong solutions, such as hair color, perm solution, bleach, and other salon chemicals.
There are different types of salon apparel available in the market. The highest quality capes, aprons, and smocks are often made of waterproof polyurethane and are given the highest level of protection and durability.
Smocks provide additional coverage of the arms and body while offering deeper pockets. Smocks and cover-ups can be found that resist water, wrinkles, and even hair. Lightweight cover-ups are a salon standard and available with soft-touch materials.

Most salon-friendly fabrics smocks will repel moisture to some degree. When water repellent aprons are exposed to water, the liquid should simply slip off the material. Wrinkle resistance refers to the product’s ability to crease less or appear free of wrinkles during wear. Crinkle nylon is an example of a versatile fabric used by Fromm that resists wrinkles, as well as water and stains.
Due to their ability to hide stains, black, brown, and burgundy salon smocks are considered staples, but sometimes fabrics are chosen to highlight a salon’s personality instead. Patterns, prints, and unique designs are readily available. Reversible capes can provide two colors in one, and may also have sides designed for different uses, such as chemical resistance, and styling.
