Getting a haircut can be traumatic for some kids (but thankfully not for you!). Here are 5 spots where taking your little one for a shear is sheer delight!
Cool, kid-friendly décor, specially designed styling stations and super patient stylists make Curly and Spike a favourite. This complete kiddo (and tween-friendly) salon offers haircuts, mini manis and pedis, styling (braids, waves, up dos, etc.), fun and safe colouring (pink streaks are always a hit), face painting and even an entire mini-makeover. They also cater parties!
Bonus: Get the same “do” as your little one at the same price!

Bonus: After 8 cuts, the 9th is free (with receipts).
With a choice of either an airplane, car, or train seat (all with steering wheels) your wiggly babe will feel, calm (or at last distracted?) for a quick cut. (The individual TV screens also help!) The friendly and experienced staff also does free styling so you both you, and your mini-me, will leave feeling satisfied.

Bonus: Four convenient locations and an online shop.
