Summer School Holidays are a great time to get your child’s ears pierced. The long break allows time for the piercings to heal before they return to school. When you are ready to bring in your child to get their ear pierced, look no further than Essential Beauty. Essential Beauty specialises in Children’s Double Operator Ear Piercing from babies to teens, and prides ourselves on making a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.
During the Double Operator Children’s Ear Piercing procedure, we pierce both of your child’s ears at the same time using two Piercing Specialists using our Contactless Sterilear System.
This is the most effective way to ensure a fuss-free and quick procedure, so you and your child are free to go about your day and enjoy their new piercing!
If you are under 16 in Australia (excluding QLD), a child is required to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian when getting their ears pierced. The parent or legal guardian must be present at the piercing and are required to display their photo identification and sign their Piercing Consent Form that ensures the parent is legally allowed to consent for their child.
For babies, we recommend waiting until your baby is at least 6 weeks old before getting their ears pierced. However, it does depend on the shape and size of your baby’s ears. If you are unsure if your child’s ears are ready to be pierced, we recommend asking one of our experienced staff in salon. The anatomy of your child’s ears does effect the ear piercing process, and plays an important role in successfully receiving this service.
Before your appointment, we recommend having a rough idea about the colour of the jewellery your child may want for their first piercing. The most popular crystals colours are Aquamarine (light blue), crystal (clear) and Amethyst (purple). We also have a wide range of colours and styles, the full selection may vary from salon to salon. If you wish to double check with your local salon before arriving, we highly recommend giving them a call!
Many parents bring along their child’s favourite toy, treat or another item to keep their child happy and distracted during the service. Others promise their child a reward afterwards such as an ice cream! Remember though, with every Children’s Ear Piercing service you will receive our famous Ted the Comfort Bear to keep your little one company.
When you arrive for your appointment, there is some paperwork to fill out and you will be asked to present the identification mentioned above.
You will then select the jewellery and head into the private piercing room.
Your child will be given their own Ted the Comfort Bear to keep them feeling happy and content throughout their appointment.
Your Piercer will place dots on your child’s ears so that you can agree on the location of the ear piercing. Both piercers will then pierce both of the child’s ears simultaneously and give them a Bravery Certificate!
Once the procedure is complete, all you will need to do is pay for the appointment, and listen to your Piercer explain Essential Beauty’s aftercare instructions. We recommend purchasing both our Sterilear Aftercare Spray range to promote healing of your piercing. You can also find detailed instructions here on how to look after your child’s piercing at home. Remember, it is important that you and your child do not touch the area at all or rotate the jewellery during the healing process.
