Believed to be the first of its kind in Wales, Liz Stewart opened the doors of SP1 just a few weeks ago.
It looks slightly different to a 'normal' hairdressers - there are no pictures on the wall, no loud music or equipment being used.
Based in the Rhiwbina area of Cardiff, Liz wanted to create a calming space for people with a range of disabilities and additional needs.
She became inspired when she realised she wasn't alone having problems taking her son, who has Down Syndrome, for a hair cut.
Amy is one of the salon's customers.
She lives with ADHD and is in the process of going through a diagnosis for autism.
Amy also has pica syndrome - an eating disorder that involves compulsive cravings for items such as soap, sponges and plastic.
Watch the report by Kathryn Tresilian:
At the salon, staff avoid using the word 'hair cut' and use 'restyle' or 'touch up' to reduce feelings of anxiety among customers.
There's also changing facilities and a sensory room - a space where customers can go and relax.
Liz is also keen to give opportunities to people additional needs. She has taken on three members of staff, each of whom have learning difficulties.
Helen wants to become a fully qualified hairdresser and will be training to do her NVQ Level 1 through the salon.
Latest figures show just around 6% of people with learning difficulties are in some sort of paid employment.
