Back-to-School means a Lesson on LIce
Head lice are parasites that are spread by person-to-person contact. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that between 6 million and 12 million children ages 3 to 11 get head lice each year. But there’s good news: First, lice aren’t dangerous and they don’t carry disease—but, true to their name, they are pests. Second, lice are preventable and curable.
Pigtails & Crewcuts carries Circle of Friends’ Lice Defense System. This line of products includes shampoo, spray-on leave-in conditioner, styling gel and hairspray, which work by actually deterring lice naturally. Made with tea tree oil, andiroba and lavender oils, along with lemon peel oil, vitamin B-5 and glycerin hydrate, the Lice Defense System repels lice while keeping your child’s hair soft, manageable and tangle-free. Plus, the lavender oil smells great.
The Centers for Disease Control offers the following tips to prevent the spread of lice:
Avoid head-to-head (hair-to-hair) contact during play and other activities at home,school,and elsewhere (sports activities, playground, slumber parties, camp).
Do not share clothing such as hats, scarves, coats, sports uniforms, hair ribbons or barrettes.
Do not share combs, brushes, or towels. Disinfest combs and brushes used by an infested person by soaking them in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5-10 minutes.
Do not lie on beds, couches, pillows, carpets, or stuffed animals that have recently been in contact with an infested person.
Machine wash and dry clothing, bed linens, and other items that an infested person wore or used during the two days before treatment using the hot water (130°F) laundry cycle and the high heat drying cycle. Clothing and items that are not washable can be dry-cleaned OR sealed in a plastic bag and stored for two weeks.
Vacuum the floor and furniture, particularly where the infested person sat or lay. However, spending much time and money on housecleaning activities is not necessary to avoid re-infestation by lice or nits that may have fallen off the head or crawled onto furniture or clothing.
Do not use fumigant sprays or fogs; they are not necessary to control head lice and can be toxic if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.

Ready For the Baby’s First Trim? Pigtails & Crewcuts Offers First Haircut Packages
You don’t get a second shot at a “first.” At Pigtails & Crewcuts, we know just how important your child’s first haircut is, and we want to make it memorable for you and your family. That’s why we offer the first haircut package. For only $X, the first haircut package includes a keepsake frame and a photo of your child with his or her adorable new haircut, along with a lock of his or her soft hair. It’s perfect for displaying on a prominent shelf, or incorporating into your favorite scrapbook.
On a daily basis, we speak with parents who come in to watch their child get the first haircut, and they say they’re sad to see their kid transform into a “big boy” or “big girl.” They worry that those curls that sprung to life on their baby might straighten. Often, it’s true. With your child’s first haircut, you will watch as he or she magically morphs from a baby into a toddler, right before your eyes. And, it’s also true that those curls might become straight. But you’re leaving with a wonderful keepsake commemorating those first months and that soft baby hair.
At this kid-centric salon, we know that watching your child grow up can be hard. But we’re proud to be a part of one of many “firsts” in the lives your family.
Top 10 Reasons Dads Should Get Their Hair Cut at Pigtails & Crewcuts
Pigtails & Crewcuts isn’t just for kids. Dads everywhere have discovered that they, too, can get a Pigtails & Crewcuts haircut, saving time and making memories with their children. No, we don’t have dad-sized fire truck chairs (note to management: look into this!), but we do offer a family-friendly atmosphere, skilled stylists, great prices and incredible convenience.
Here are the top 10 reasons that Dad should get his hair cut at Pigtails & Crewcuts.
1. Set a great example. You are your child’s hero. This is a great way to show them that getting a haircut is an exciting and enjoyable experience for the whole family.
2. Dad vs. kid video game challenge. Ready to prove who’s king in a Super Mario Bros. challenge? Try your thumbs at our video game collection while we trim away. Your haircut may be done before the game even ends!
3. It keeps you young. Youthfulness defines Pigtails & Crewcuts, and that keeps our stylists up-to-date on all the latest haircutting trends and techniques. Whether you’re young or young-at-heart, your Dad haircut will help shave off the years.
4. Make it a dad-daughter/dad-son date. One-on-one time is precious, and even more so if you’re both taking part in the activity at hand. Plan a day around your Pigtails & Crewcuts outing and make it extra special.
5. Let us be your guide. Dads don’t always know what they want in a haircut. Neither do kids! Pigtails & Crewcuts stylists specialize in giving you the right look for you. Sit back and relax, and we’ll do all the work.
6. Fits easily into your schedule. No, we don’t have race car chairs for dads to sit in, but we do operate with race car speed. When you work with kids all day, you learn the meaning of efficiency. We know that busy dads have limited time, and we take that to heart, giving you a quality haircut almost as fast as you can say “Lightening McQueen.”
7. Walk-ins are welcome. If an hour opens up between soccer, softball and piano practice, stop by! We’re happy to accommodate the whole family.
8. Catch up on your favorite flicks. We know how dads love their flat screens. Pigtails & Crewcuts does, too. Each of our salons has multiple TVs playing the latest movies, giving you a much-needed break while you get your hair cut.
9. Our salon is kid approved. At our kid-proof salon, we’ve seen it all. Dads don’t need to worry about their child crying, talking too loud or saying inappropriate things. You can let your kids be kids at Pigtails & Crewcuts and worry about other important Dad things— like the latest fantasy football rankings or improving that golf swing.
10. Why should kids have all the fun? The older we get, the more serious the haircut experience becomes. Pigtails & Crewcuts makes dads feel like kids again, and we think that’s priceless.
When a Kid’s Hairdo Becomes a Hair-don’t
It happens more than you might think. Gum gets mysteriously stuck in Kennedy’s curls. Marker makes its way into Louie’s locks. The ponytail on Eileen goes green from chlorine.
Pigtails & Crewcuts has the same response to all of the above: “We’ve got this.”
As a kid-centric hair salon, we know, firsthand, that not all haircuts revolve around special occasions. That’s why Pigtails & Crewcuts is here for your family in good hair days and bad. Since we opened our doors, we’ve provided what we like to call “disaster relief plans” to kids large and small. In fact, we recently created a video series illustrating a (hilarious) dramatization of the challenges we regularly see. The Donald, Gum in Hair, Mom is a Lawyer, and Uncle Joe.
We know that parents experience an array of emotions when it comes to kids’ hair-don’ts: anger, embarrassment and, eventually, humor (we hope). Many moms and dads will spend hours on the Internet researching a home remedy to take care of the mess, themselves. And that’s ok. But we want you to know that there are options, and Pigtails & Crewcuts is here for you. Our stylists are adept at taking care of business, whether it’s gum, make-up, color, food, scissors or any other common kid-tastrophe—no questions asked.
Next time the peanut butter goes missing or the play dough gets braided in, bring it to the experts. We’ve got this.
Hair-raising Ideas for Halloween ‘dos
Fall is in the air, and all of the little goblins and ghouls are getting ready for a hair-raising holiday!
Hair makes the outfit, whether it’s Halloween or any other day of the year, and our Pigtails & Crewcuts team of hair experts is filled with ideas for you and your little pumpkin. Whether you’re teasing yourself into a tizzy or rocking the faux hawk, get your scare on with our ideas for Halloween hair.
Tease it out. Ready for your hair to stand on end? Hold it straight up and then take a comb and gently tease it down until it stands on its own. Spray with hair spray (or, better, color spray) for staying power. Whether you’re teasing one section or all of the hair, this is a great way to turn heads on Halloween.
Spike it up. Want to look rough and tough? With Jacques’ Hair Jam, by Circle of Friends, you won’t get any funny business. This texturizing hair wax is perfect for creating high hair art, whether you want a faux hawk, spikes or just a wild, vertical ‘do.
Slick it back. Go greased lightening! Slick that hair back, with the best of ‘em. Whether you’re dressing as Superman, Dracula or even a slick politician, you need goo. We suggest Circle of Friends Luc’s Lemon Lime Shine Hair Slicker, which is also great for smoothing out or spiking up hair, year round.
Color, color and more color. Whether you’re a zombie or a clown, a monster, mermaid or minion, every costume is better with color. Consider using hair chalk, hair color spray, hair feathers or hair tinsel for an eye-catching splash of brightness.
Go beyond Pippi with pipe cleaners. Pipe cleaners are a Halloween hairdo’s best friend. Whether you’re looking to make sticky-outy braids like Pippi Longstocking, or something less extreme, these tools are inexpensive and easy to use. Simply section hair into pigtails or ponytails and braid or wrap the hair around the pipe cleaner. You can form them into simple cat ears, bumblebee antennas or other styles.
Twist those cinnamon rolls. Do you have a little Princess Leia? Those cinnamon roll buns are key! To form them, make pigtails above the ears. Braid both pigtails, placing a small rubber band at the end of each. Then twist them into buns, and use bobby pins or hairpins to hold them together. May the force be with you!
Add some flair to your hair. Look around you for inspiration. Flowers or leaves make beautiful accents. Going for a scary effect? A few plastic spiders will really ramp up the creep factor and make just about anyone’s skin crawl. With a supply of bobby pins in hand, you can attach just about anything to your hair.
Keep it simple. Sometimes, a little bit of Halloween goes a long way. A simple themed hair clip or headband is a great way to show off some Halloween spirit. Plus, you won’t have any arguments about washing it out.
