My wife, Rachel, and I opened Pigtails & Crewcuts in The Orchard Town Center in 2010, following a series of disappointments while taking our young twin boys to salons. We weren’t impressed with the ways that any of the adult-centric salons worked with kids. One salon actually told us it would be best if we didn’t come back, because both of our boys were crying during their haircuts (they were 4, it happens!).
One of our children has some special needs, and not all businesses have the proper preparation and exposure, frankly, to know how to help him be his best. Having grown up here in the Denver area, ourselves, Rachel and I saw the opportunity to open a kids salon that welcomed everyone with open arms—crying or not, special needs or not. Rachel’s background is in social work, so she truly knows how important it is to provide a supportive, friendly and fun environment for everyone.
With Pigtails & Crewcuts, that’s just what we’ve tried to do. Whether your child is the belle of the ball who dreams of being pampered at the salon, or a shy child who prefers a more quiet approach, we want everyone to be comfortable at Pigtails & Crewcuts, and we go to great lengths to see that they are.
Our talented staff has extensive experience in working with children who have physical, medical and developmental challenges. We hired each and every one of them because they’re kind, patient and talented. Together, we’re working hard to best serve each customer.
We do offer “quiet” appointments for kids who are overwhelmed by noise and crowds. We’re happy to accommodate those requests, and we extend our hours most every Sunday at 5:30p.m. by appointment only for children with quiet time special needs. We’re also happy to schedule appointments or take walk-ins during our slower, calmer times during the week, which is generally 12:30-3 Monday-Friday. If you’re interested in an appointment, please call us at 303-252-0744 to schedule. We look forward to giving you a great haircut and a wonderful experience.
With warmest regards,
Brett and Rachel Miller
