Kids Favorite Destinations to Combine with your Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Visit!

Posted by Matthew S on Mon, Dec 12, 2016 @ 14:12 PM

CoolTrips.jpgIf you're like a lot of parents, you're usually trying to find something fun and memorable for you to do with your kids on summer vacation or for a fun family weekend trip. That's why we thought it might be fun to come up with some of the big attractions in each city where a Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is located. Because like a lot of these great places listed below, Shear Madness is also a magical destination for kids where haircuts, parties, salon services and a fantastic kids boutique filled with toys, hair products, jewelry and more are waiting for parents and their kids to discover! So don't miss out - the following locations where each Shear Madness is located are also home to some of the coolest places for kids too. Have fun checking out these cool trips for kids!

Des Moines / Ankeny: Did you know that Des Moines Iowa is home to the Adventureland Amusement Park? That's right! According to their website, "Adventureland Amusement Park and Adventure Bay Waterpark contain over 100 rides, shows, and attractions including some of the country's most exciting roller coasters and thrill rides that can challenge the most avid amusement park enthusiasts." Also of note is the Science Center of Iowa, which "engages and inspires visitors by bringing learning to life...With live science demonstrations, a 50-foot planetarium and a six-story IMAX dome theater, there's always more to explore!" And of course any trip to Des Moines wouldn't be quite complete without stopping by Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in West Des Moines (across from the Jordan Creek Mall). But don't forget - you can also visit one of our cool stores while in Ankeny too!

Albuquerque: If you're visiting Albuquerque, New Mexico, you may may want to check out the ABQ BioPark, a cool environmental museum comprising four facilities: Aquarium, Botanic Garden, Zoo and Tingley Beach (fishing lakes). Each of the facilities is designed to help foster environmental awareness, education and stewardship. Meanwhile, Cliff's Amusement Park is the only place in New Mexico with Family Rides, Thrill Rides (like the New Mexico Rattler, one of the Top 25 Wooden Roller Coasters in the world), Kiddieland and Cliff's WaterMania!  Great games and good food, too! And lastly, any visit to Albuquerque wouldn't be complete without stopping by Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque at Paseo Del Nort & Wyoming!

Lee's Summit / Olathe (Kansas City): Named one of the country's 25 best science centers by Parents Magazine, Kansas City's Science City provides over 200,000 visitors annually with an engaging environment ripe for exploration, experimentation and discovery. Plus, the historic Union Station (which Science City is a part of) is also a must-see destination in itself.  Additionally, the Kansas City Zoo is a 202 acre  zoo that is home to more than 1,300 animals. In 2008, the Kansas City Zoo was voted one of America's best zoos, and was ranked number one in the nation for “African Animals and Exhibits". The Zoo was also ranked among the top 10 in the nation for “Australian Animals and Exhibits”. Also, you won't want to miss checking out Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Lee's Summit or Olathe!

Amherst, New York: With over 7000 artifacts on display, the Medina Railroad Museum amazes all ages with it's largest toy train layout in New York State, collections from the late 1800's to present, and huge collection of fire safety equipment! Also nearby, the Buffalo Zoo offers guests fascinating animal exhibits, naturalistic wildlife habitats, beautiful garden areas and several unique areas in which to enjoy an environment that is full of fun, adventure and history (all throughout the year). The Buffalo Zoo is open daily rain or shine - just like Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Amherst, New York! Check it out!

San Antonio, Texas: ASeaWorld San Antonio, kids will love getting up close and personal with a dolphin, as well as penguins, beluga whales, dolphins, and flamingoes! There's also crazy roller coasters (including one of two “hypercoasters” SeaWorld has throughout the US) and water rides as well! After a cool visit to Sea World, you may want to visit the San Antonio Zoo, which is a great place for kids who love animals, learning, and learning about animals. Finish off this memorable day with an equally memorable visit to Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids at the Forum in San Antonio, or at the Village at Stone Oak (also in San Antonio)!

McAllen, Texas: The International Museum of Art & Science is a Smithsonian Affiliate and is the premier art and science museum of South Texas (containing over 50,000 square feet of exhibit space). The museum provides a unique opportunity for visitors to participate in hands-on science exhibits and to learn original works of art while encouraging creativity and innovation. IMAS’ Permanent Collection includes Folk Art, Fine Art, Decorative Art and a modest Geological Collection. Meanwhile, Quinta Mazatlan is a beautiful urban sanctuary that seeks to enrich people's lives through educating about birds, plants, and environmental stewardship in South Texas.

Albuquerque Shear Madness voted Best of City 2015!

Posted by Matthew S on Tue, Jan 12, 2016 @ 08:01 AM

bestofcity15.jpgSome of our readers may recall that the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Salon Franchise in Albuquerque was voted Best of the City in 2014 (which you can read about here). We are excited to say that they've done it again, and have been voted by readers as Albuquerque The Magazine's Best of the City for 2015! This is quite an honor to be sure, as over 100,000 votes were cast in order to spotlight those businesses, organizations, restaurants, and people that help make Albuquerque such a great place to live!

Listed under the "Best Kids' Haircut" Category, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is noted by the magazine as not being just another kids' salon, but as a unique place where "every child matters". The article goes on to explain how, "to help fend off boredom and apprehension many kids fear at the salon, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids has mounted cars for styling chairs, televisions and Xbox games at every station to make the experience fun and special." Additionally, Shear Madness also has an award-winning YOUniquey Boutiquey where kids and parents can shop a fantastic selection of toys, jewelry, hair products, hair accessories and more. And to top it off, by mixing in ShEAR Dazzled Ear Piercing (a unique ear piercing experience), the La De Da Spa, themed parties, and a great styling staff - customers are sure to find something to bring a smile to their face! 

Michelle Vick, owner of the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque states that some of the reasons her store has been selected two years in a row for the Best of the City honor is because the store is a "unique, fun and happy place." She also notes that, "We really work at great customer service and creating an awesome experience for parents and children alike, and I'm proud of how hard my stylists work at building up personal relationships with their customers. I'm also really thankful for how loyal our customers are!"

Michelle also notes the important part that effective marketing plays in being recognized by parents and children as an outstanding kids salon. By generating positive brand awareness, the salon has seen steady growth since opening only two years ago. Additionally, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque has really perfected the art of not only giving a great haircut, but also hosting fabulous kids Birthday parties! For example, the spa party concept has been a real hit in Albuquerque. Girls are treated to wearing spa robes, getting mini manis, twisty updos, glittery makeup, and a glitter tattoo. They sing Karaoke and get to choose a headband from the YOUniquey boutiquey to take home!

Janon Otto, CEO of Shear Madness Franchising noted that, "Shear Madness in Albuquerque has always been so concerned with excellent customer service since day one!  We are so proud of this store, the stylists are excellent, the parties - the best, and now they are doing an excellent job with ear piercing as well!  We see this store continuing to build its clientele and remaining - The Best in Albuquerque!"
