We thought we would share a couple of suggestions that can help us serve you better.
We know that when it comes to doing children’s haircuts, they are moving targets and we can still do a great haircut, we simply need you to help us a little.
If you have a particular style in mind, be sure to find a photo that shows said style. It often helps if you take a picture of your child when his/her hair looks just the way you love it!
When you bring your child in for a new do, please take the time to go over one of our style books, it gives the stylist a starting point. While our stylists are professionals and can certainly deliver the perfect haircut for your child every time, it is best when we can see what you have in mind.
Cutting hair can be such a subjective matter. A little trim may be not enough for one Mom, but too much for the next. Tell us how much you would like, 1/8 of an inch, 1/2 inch…
The most popular girl style in haircutting is the “Bob”. There are several types of bobs, be sure to tell us about the activities that your daughter does so we can best guide you on a do that will fit her lifestyle. There is the traditional bob, a stacked bob, an angled bob…please note that there some some hair textures that are not conducive to bobs.
A traditional boy haircut can also be subjective. A military family may have a totally different perspective on this popular boy do, from say a family of surfers!
When planning on bringing your child for his or hers next cut, please allow time for the proper consultations with your stylist, this will allow for everyone involved to be happy with the final outcome.
Lastly, for all children’s haircuts it is very important that the child look down long enough for the stylist to make sure the haircut is even. If you notice your child is not looking down, feel free to assist. We appreciate the help.
