"Here's a scenario that might sound familiar: You're in the salon chair getting beautified when your phone suddenly starts to buzz. Who's texting? You have no idea, because you're completely trapped by the plastic cape holding your hands hostage.

If you know this situation all too well, then listen up. A new invention, aptly named the iCape, will allow you to text, play a game or even take a phone call while getting a trim thanks to a transparent piece of plastic in the cape."

Your Customers Don't Have to be Cut-off When You Cut Their Hair

We live in a connected world. Our smartphones are the windows into our personal and professional lives. It's no surprise that we check our phones more than 150 times a day...that's once every seven minutes.

Today, however, salon time is down time. Haircuts are messy and smartphones, iPads and wearables are expensive, so customers feel compelled to keep them safe, clean and dry in their pockets, purses, briefcases or backpacks. But that leaves your customers feeling disconnected and left out.

Build Stronger Customer Relationships and Attract New Ones

iCape® by Capemakers is the original hair cutting cape that keeps your customers connected. Now they can text, email, or surf when getting their hair styled, all while keeping devices safe, clean and dry.

Finally you can build even stronger relationships with your customers now that they can easily show you photos of their families, friends or favorite hairstyles. From discussing breaking news to sharing the latest celebrity gossip to talking about what’s trending on Twitter, iCape enables you to have an entirely new kind of conversation with your customers.
And for those quiet times, now your customers can turn a cut-and-color into productive time. Enable them to reach out to friends and family, stay in touch with the office or start listening to that audiobook they just downloaded. Keep your customers connected and keep your customers.

For salons and stylists who want to attract and retain the next generation of clientele to grow their businesses, the iCape delivers a delightful, differentiated customer experience. Your customers don't have to go dark when they're getting highlights.

Kids Can Cut Loose, Too

If you cater to kids, or do home haircuts, the iCape offers peace of mind for parents when sharp scissors are nearby. Young children can play games while you cut their hair safely and quickly with minimal movement. 

Active children slow down and hold still when they're engaged with a game or watching a show. The iCape lets you cut kids' hair faster and more safely, which means more revenue and bigger tips.

Patented Features in a Quality Cutting Cape

The iCape was thoughtfully designed to deliver a delightful salon and barbershop experience. Now in its second generation, iCape's unique, patented design features a large window for smart phones and tablets, versatile lightweight crinkle nylon, adjustable neck snap closure and is easy to care for. 

At 44 x 68 inches, iCape is extra-long to keep clothes covered and the Teflon treatment resists water, stains and wrinkles. iCape is currently available in black and red.
