Hot Shave Experience

Our shaves are an amazing experience in relaxation for Men. Approximately 30-45min, our shaves start with a skin and hair assessment, followed by soothing hot towels to soften and prepare the face. Your Barber will determine what products to use (hot lather, oil, or creams ). Using a straight blade you will enjoy a close clean shave, followed by more hot towels to clean and cleanse the skin. If necessary a cold towel or cold cream is used at the finish to close your pores and leave you feeling refreshed and clean.

Kids Cuts

Giving your child the best haircut experience can be a difficult task for some. The haircut itself can sometimes be a scary or wonderful, so here are some tips for parents or caregivers to get you prepared:
• Call and make your appointment letting us know it's a “first experience”
• Talk with your child about what's going to happen for a few days before the appointment
• Photos are welcome!!!!
• Our clippers sometimes sound like “remote control airplanes” and can feel “wiggly” on there skin
• Bring a favourite snack , something in little pieces (eg: fruit snacks, fishy crackers)
• Allow your child to see how fun “daddy’s” or “uncle’s” haircut is
• If you know your child will be upset please let us know ahead of time so we can prepare better for you
• Sometimes if your young child is going to be very upset, a large towel to almost “swaddled” them can make them feel safe and keep them snuggled with you for the haircut. This is only in most “upset” instances!

We at Shear Performance understand kids can be unpredictable but we do our best to give them the best haircut experience we can! Thanks Families for your confidence in us for so many years!! We love watching your families grow!

    Love the gang at Shear Performance ! Marisa and Susan and Alysia have cut my ASD son’s hair since he was a baby ... He used to cry, but They have now become his go to girls and we wouldn’t go anywhere else!

    It took my son a bit to warm up to any place but after his friends started to tell him about the place with the quad and the color hair spray he was sold!! And to be able to watch paw patrol??! What kid wouldn’t want that?! I’ve been very impressed with the patience I’ve seen as I’m sure it’s not easy cutting kids hair!

    I have been bringing my son to shear performance to see Marissa for many years and am always very happy with her professionalism and great cuts. Ive brought my son to many other places before Shear performance and have always had terrible cuts. Marissa gets it perfect every time. It is also a very kid friendly environment. Brought my Daughter there in the last few months as well and was very happy with her haircut. Thanks Marissa

    Where do I start? Shear Performance Barbershop has been our first choice for a very long time! From the time my kids were babies, they got to sit on tractors and quads and the staff at Shear Performance made our experience not only enjoyable but my kids felt safe! I love the picture wall with all the kids pics and my kids love the video game center!! I've almost left them there a few times just to run some errands. Hats off to Shear Performance Barbershop! We won't go anywhere else! Oh and Marisa Oborne is always our top choice for stylist

    Both my kids love getting there haircut at Shear Performance Barbershop. They get so excited when they know that they have an appointment. My son loves his hair tattoos from Marisa and my daughter loves watching Max and Ruby while getting her hair cut. She also loves getting the sparkles sprayed in her hair after she is done. In my daughters own words, “I want sprinkles!!” See you soon Marisa!!

  • Testimonials

    My daughter is still talking about getting her hair cut while she was riding the tractor. She absolutely loved it. My son had his first haircut when we were there as well, and even though he was extremely wiggly, his haircut came out great ... we have gotten lots of complements on the haircuts. The only thing I didn't like about the experience is that my daughter got extremely sticky from the lollipop... lol. Thank you ladies!

    My son had his first hair cut there. The staff were great and Jakob really enjoyed sitting on the tractor playing with the dinosaur toys! Can't wait to go back! :)

    I took my three year old twins and my five year old to Shear Performance. I live in Sardis and have not found a "kid friendly" experience for hair cuts. Shear Performance is well worth the drive to Abbotsford, the kids keeping talking about the cool color she put in their hair (washes out in the bath) and the sparkles in my little girl's hair. Highly recommended!
