Kids Haircut in a fun salon chair at Locks of Fun in Valparaiso, Indiana

What makes your hair cuts special for kids?

Well, it’s not everywhere you can get a haircut in kids salon chairs such as a police car while watching a movie! Children can choose from kids salon chairs such as police cars to Barbie jeeps, from tractors to fire engines! Plus, they get their choice of a DVD movie to watch or Game Cube or Xbox game to play, which help to make the time go by faster. They’ll enjoy FREE popcorn and juice too. When they’re done, they’ll receive a coupon for a FREE special treat at a nearby store! All of these “rewards” make getting a kids haircut worth it for just about any child!

 

 

 

 


Why are there no mirrors in your salon?

We have found that, children who are upset during a kids haircut, get the most upset when they can see their hair being cut. So, we’ve removed the mirrors! Instead of mirrors, we feature flat screen television displays, where kids can watch their favorite movie or play their favorite Game Cube or Xbox game. Removing the visual complication and replacing it with a pleasant distraction makes a kids haircut more pleasant!

What can my child do while waiting for their appointment?
