September 4, 2018, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma — Pigtails & Crewcuts: Haircuts for Kids is now open in Northwest Oklahoma City. This is the franchise’s first children’s salon in the state. The salon is located at 13429 North MacArthur Boulevard next to Taylor Dental & Implant Center.
“It’s exciting to be the first to bring Pigtails & Crewcuts to Oklahoma,” says owner Stephen Taylor. “We look forward to opening multiple salons in the state.”
Taylor, a local dentist, owns the retail center where his practice with his father is located. With space available for tenants, Taylor knew he wanted to fill it with a family-oriented business and began searching for an opportunity that would provide a nice service to the community. “I started searching and when I found Pigtails & Crewcuts I was fascinated by the experience it brings to families and kids. After seeing what the salons looked like–the chairs, movies, toys, and video games–it clicked that this would be a nice service to have in Oklahoma City,” he shared.
Creating a great experience is what it’s all about for Taylor. “I want families to enjoy the experience of getting haircuts instead of just knocking out the chore.” he says. As a parent, Taylor likes that he and his oldest son can get haircuts together and have fun playing video games during the process. He’s also a big fan of the vehicle-shaped chairs. “They’re just fun. My two-year-old loves sitting in all of them.”
With Oklahoma City being a close-knit and family-oriented community, Taylor has already received great feedback in the short time the salon has been open. “I’ve heard from families that waited for us to open because the salon looked like so much fun,” he notes.
“One mom told me that her two-year-old was scared and worried about haircuts after a previous bad experience. They waited six months before his next haircut and when she brought him in, he sat in the police chair, smiled and had a blast,” Taylor shares. “Hearing stories like that and seeing kids come in and smile and have a good time is awesome. That’s what we want to see.”
“We’re excited for our first salon in Oklahoma to be open and to meet our new customers in Oklahoma City and share the Pigtails & Crewcuts experience with them,” says Theresa Underwood, Vice President of Franchise Support.
