Pigtails & Crewcuts: For a Cool Kids Haircut
If you’re making your back-to-school list and checking it twice, make sure the obligatory fall haircut is right up there with getting the backpacks and lunch boxes ready. San Diego has several haircut salons that cater to kids. My favorite (since Dylan was a baby) has been Chloe’s Carousel – they always do a great job, it’s convenient to where we live, and Dylan loves it. This time however, we happened to be at Liberty Station wandering around Liberty Public Market– cool spot, check it out!
I knew Pigtails & Crewcuts was right next-door so I thought we should give it a try. I called to make an appointment and they said they don’t take appointments, but there wasn’t a long wait. Woohoo! First of all, this place is super kid-friendly. From the cute chairs the kids get to sit in, to the treasure chest treats, and tons of books and a train table in the play area… Such a fun place!
Just in case your little one isn’t a big fan of getting a haircut, Pigtails & Crewcuts offers plenty of distractions to hopefully prevent any fussiness or meltdowns. Each station has a flatscreen TV playing cartoons or a Disney movie, and there are animal crackers offered to keep little hands & mouths happy!
By now, Dylan is a pro at getting his hair cut so he did great! My only criticisms were that he is so tall, he’s almost too big for the cute little chairs! Maybe they have “normal” chairs available but then that takes the fun out of going to a kids hair salon. And also the price is a little steep… $21.95 (not including a tip) for a boys haircut that takes 5-10 minutes is a little much. I wish they had different pricing for trims, especially for boys who don’t get all the braiding, glitter and ribbons that the girls get for the same price. But I suppose it was worth it- How cute is he?!
Pigtails & Crewcuts sells tons of kid-friendly hair products and has a section of cool and unique toys for sale as well. Perfect in case you’re on your way to a kids birthday party and need a last-minute gift!
And finally, they also do birthday parties right at the salon. There’s a separate party room where kids can play dress up, create arts & crafts, and have a blast getting their hair done with their friends. Each salon location has different party themes and can customize the event so it’s perfect for your special celebration.
