Getting your child’s haircut should be fun. The car-shaped salon chairs, flat screen TVs with cartoons on, the balloon, bubbles or lollipop at the end. But for many children, the idea of getting a new do is met with tears, tantrums, and the refusal to sit still. Don’t even think of taking your kids to your own hair stylist. That will have you blacklisted for life.
But have no fear, here is a list of hair salons in Fairfield County that are designated and designed just for kids.

It was such a fun experience with no tears, ask for Gina!

Older kids will love the chance to play Playstation 4 or X-box 360 on 40″ screens while getting their haircut too. Sharkey’s recently expanded and have a new room designed for girls, tweens and teens! Both my girls got their first hair cuts here and took home first hair cut certificates with a snip of their hair in a clear plastic bag. Such a cute keep sake for their scrap books.
