We know when you are browsing our salonwear website, it can be tricky finding the correct trousers to match your tunics.  So this article will give you all the information you need to understand the different fabrics we offer:

1. FOUR WAY STRETCH – 96% polyester 4% elastane

The majority of our garments come in 4 way stretch polyester, designed specifically by Salonwear for the industry to offer a durable, easy care solution for the busy salon professional.  So easy to look after, and no need to tumble dry, you simply wash, drip dry on a hanger and its ready to wear before you know it.


  • - Fashionable yet practical
  • - The 4 way stretch element gives ultimate comfort to your beauty tunics
  • - No ironing required
  • - The feel good factor – people have commented they have never felt so comfortable  because of the freedom of movement that this stretch material gives!
  • - Washable up to 40 degrees


“I’m on my feet in the salon all day, so its important to have a uniform that’s practical, and this material is SOOOOOOO comfortable to wear as well as being modern and trendy”

2. TAILORED LUXURY FABRIC – 100% Polyester with a mechanical stretch

When speaking to our customers, many people asked us to create a fabric that was a little more structured, more corporate looking, rigid if you like! And that’s why we came up with this new gorgeous ‘tailored fabric’ perfect for that more sophisticated luxury look. By nature of the rigid feel of the garments, make sure you select a size that gives you enough room to move around comfortably.

(By the way, the name ‘tailored fabric’ is not to be confused with ‘tailored fit’, although as it happens, the nature of it being less stretchy does actually mean it is more snug than our other fabrics!)


  • - Lightweight
  • - Stylish and sophisticated
  • - More corporate and luxury
  • - Washable up to 40 degrees

“Loving the new tailored garments – clients are always commenting on how smart we all look. Thanks again Salonwear”

“We chose the Couture dress in grey fleck tailored fabric and it is just  perfect for all of our front of house staff”

Examples in this fabric: 

Couture V-neck Work Dress in Grey Fleck   Icon Curved-hem Tunic in Black

 Couture V-neck Work Dress in Grey Fleck               Icon Curved Hem Tunic in Black

3. Polycotton fabric – 65% Polyester 35% cotton

If you are looking for more of cotton content, this fabric is perfect for you. Durable and practical, our polycotton fabric is suitable for both male and female uniforms. This is a more traditional material often used in healthcare as well as beauty.


  • - Hard wearing
  • - Washable at 60 degrees
  • - Durable and Practical
