NOT your ordinary cutting capes. Designed with more room in mind, this cape has extra steel snaps to accommodate from a baby neck to an adult 22″ neck. Each cape is doubled-stitched for longer endurance and are completely machine washable. Poly-nylon material so hair wont stick to it. Great for Barbers and Cosmetogologists. Life expectancy: 1-2 years (Capes last longer when you wash them and hang them up instead of putting in the dryer, can go in the dryer on low heat).
