Make an impact with this show-stopping gown. The hood allows for hair to be concealed up until the big reveal. Available in trilobal fabric with a tie fastening that secures underneath the chin.
Choosing the right fabric
Most of our gown styles come in a selection of three fabrics: Trilobal, Microfibre, and Ultima. Each fabric has a unique finish and texture, allowing you to create the perfect fit for your salon. All of our fabrics are water-repellent, durable and easy to care for.
A 100% nylon crinkle woven fabric that is very easy to care for. Retains the crinkle texture through washing and low temperature tumble drying. Lightweight, comfortable, water-repellent and quick drying.
A 100% polyester fabric with a matte finish, giving a cotton look but with the easy-care benefits of polyester. The soft peachy texture makes this gown very comfortable for clients. Slightly heavier weight than the trilobal fabric and water-repellent.
Made from a mix of 50% nylon and 50% polyester to create a luxurious, silk-effect finish. The heaviest weight of all the three fabrics, Ultima is very hard wearing and comes in a range of shining, light reflecting colours.
Choosing the right fastening
The majority of our gowns come with a choice of fastening. There is no ‘best’ solution, merely your own preference. When choosing a fastening, make sure to consider how the client puts on the gown & the adjustability of each fastening.
Hook & Loop Tape
The simplest of fastenings. Easy for your client to close themselves on the front fastening gowns.
A tried & tested fastening. Each style of gown, where available, comes with 4 steel poppers. Very durable, easy to close and secure.
Available styles: Artisan
Each gown with the clip fastening comes with a black binding around the neck to anchor the clips, which work like two very secure paper clips. This makes the clip fastening infinitely adjustable, so this option is ideal if you have a variety of clients or work with children.
Available styles: Artisan
Traditional fastening with two ribbons fabric that tie in a bow, giving edge-to-edge closure. The La Coupe style fastens at the back of the neck whereas the Kimono &
Elegance gowns feature a belt around the waist.
Is this the holy grail of gown closures? Available on the Vogue style only. Very easy to close and stays securely fastened. Simple for the client to close themselves if preferred.
Available styles: Vogue
All of our gowns are embroidered in house with the utmost care. Our unique bespoke service gives us maximum flexibility to provide the service you need. There are no minimum quantities, and we take as much care with a single gown as we do for large salon groups. Text embroidery is absolutely free, and for logos we charge small one off set-up fee. Our embroidery team can trace out any logo to create a perfect reproduction – we like to think anything is possible!

Position & sizing
The most popular positions for embroidery are on the centre of the chest where it can be up to 15cm across, or on the breast where it will be 10cm. Other positions may be available, please give us a call on 01283 585656 to discuss any special requirements.
We hold over 400 different colour threads in stock and can closely match your corporate colour. While threads do not come in pantone colours, we can find the nearest match for you. Alternatively, you can send us a sample to compare to – we have even had customers send painted paper to ensure that their decor and gown embroidery look perfect together.
FREE text embroidery
If we can embroider your chosen design from a keyboard we are happy to do so with no charge at all! Just type in your text exactly as you require it to appear on the gown, including capitalization & punctuation. Bear in mind that your embroidery has to fit into a 15cm circle and, whilst we do not have a character limit, we recommend that each letter needs to be at least 5mm for legibility.
You can email your logo to us in any format to [email protected], or post a copy to Feel For Hair Ltd., Tomlinson Business Park, Foston, Derbyshire, DE65 5BU. We will trace it out & replication it exactly on your chosen gowns. There is a one-off set up charge of £25.00 + VAT for this service, but we will keep your digitized logo on file for future re-orders.
