Cutting hair for a living is a great profession. The state of our hair is in direct correlation with our mood. The better we think our hair is, the more confident we are. A hair artist creates a personal relationship with their customer which is a rather rewarding feeling. Again, it is a great profession, but it is also a hard profession. It requires being in a standing position for hours.
A quality mat creates a padded surface
Standing and walking for hours on a hard surface is extremely unhealthy. Our body generates an unbelievable amount of force with each step, and if you studied physics, you know that the force won’t just disappear, it has gone somewhere. If the floor cannot absorb most of it, it will come back to our knees, our hip and believe it or not, even our upper body, creating tension where you are the most susceptible to it. A quality material will absorb some or maybe even most of that pressure, making your job (and life) easier.
You want to avoid accidents
Another important factor of course is adhesion. You want a surface that can easily be cleaned and even if it gets wet, it won’t become slippery. If a customer slips and falls, you might be legally liable for the injuries if you did not make all the necessary precautions. Take a look around in a quality shop for personalized anti fatigue mats, and make sure that you cover all your bases.
