A Father & Son's First Trip to Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids!

Posted by Matthew S on Tue, Mar 14, 2017 @ 15:03 PM

fatherson.jpgAfter having recently written about what it is that Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is about (which can be read right here), we thought it would be fun to follow it up with an actual account of a parents review of a first-time visit to one of our stores! Following is what a father and his son had to say about what it's like to visit a Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids!

Matt describes that after learning about Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids from a friend, he made an appointment for his son to visit on a Sunday afternoon. "The receptionist was very friendly, and really sounded interested in what was going on," Matt noted. "This was a great first impression, as sometimes I've called stores and gotten ahold of people who weren't overly enthused to talk to me. It made a difference."

Matt then discussed that on the day of their appointment, he tried to arrive with his son a few minutes early. "When we walked in, I could tell this was the kind of place I would have loved coming to as a kid. And I could tell my son was really liking it too. He was drawn to the diecast vehicles and action figures in a cool retail area in the front of the store, and spent a few minutes checking these out while we waited just a minute or two for our haircut. There were a lot of toys and games for boys, but there was also toys and stuffed animals for girls -and there was jewelry, hairbows and hair products too, which was great. I also really liked the look of the store, as it has a lot of bright colors and fun artwork hanging on the walls. And there was a birthday party going on in the back, with karaoke, which added to the fun atmosphere of the place."

"My son pretty much knew what to expect for his haircut, but this was the first time he was able to play a game while he was getting it cut. He also could have watched a movie too, but he couldn't resist one of the building games that was available on the game console that he also plays at home. Meanwhile, I was able to stand nearby and watch, and we both gave our input on what we were looking for regarding his hairstyle," Matt explained. "The stylist was very friendly, and talked to my son about how his day was. She also talked with me too, and seemed like she really enjoyed her job. I saw that there were a variety of vehicle type chairs for kids to sit in while they were getting a haircut, but as my son is older, he sat in a normal sized chair. I later learned that I could have gotten a haircut there as well if I had wanted, and that sometimes adults will come in and get a haircut with their child for the sake of convenience. There's also various haircutting packages, where a mother and son can get a haircut together for a special price, or a daddy and daughter can get one too. I'll definitely plan on coming back again the next time my son needs his haircut!"

When Matt's son was asked about his visit to Shear Madness, he smiled and said, "My Shear Madness trip was so fantastic, it felt wonderful to get manly-scented hair gel put into my hair. I enjoyed playing the games while getting my haircut. I also liked how vibrant everything was, and had fun looking at the toys. I would definitely recommend this place, because it's good!"

What is Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids?

Posted by Matthew S on Mon, Jan 16, 2017 @ 12:01 PM

what.jpgIt's true that Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids has experienced phenomenal growth over the last several years, and is opening up exciting new locations all the time. But we understand that there are still those folks out there who just don't know what our concept is about. So here is what Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is, and how we make it our mission to truly be a place "Where Every Child matters!"

To start off with, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is a place where kid's haircuts are our specialty. One thing we're known for is the fun vehicles that kids can sit in when they get a haircut. And while these cool cars, trucks and airplanes are a great way to stimulate imaginative play, we also provide televisions and game consoles so that children can have fun experiences (and not just be staring off into space) while they are getting their fantastic new hair style. But we also understand that some of our customers may be older kids or adults too, so we of course have normal chairs along with televisions and game consoles to interact with (if they so choose) while getting a haircut. 

SeptWed3.jpgShear Madness is also known for it's fun and memorable environment. From the moment a child and their parent walks into one of our stores, they know they've entered into a unique place where kids feel special. With happy kids music playing in the background, cheerful staff, brightly colored mirrors, cool lights, the afore-mentioned vehicle chairs, and stylish graphics on the walls, it's hard not to feel like you've entered into a totally new and wonderful kind of magical kids realm!

Plus, when you visit one of our locations, you'll definitely have a blast shopping (and playing) in our award-winning YOUniquey Boutiquey! We have tons of great kids retail gifts for birthdays, holidays, or just because. Everything from diecast toy cars, airplanes and trains, to stuffed animals, action figures, toys for imaginative play, dinosaurs, educational games and books, and so much  more. And don't forget to check out our amazing selection of jewelry and kids hair care products! Our fantastic bow wall is also a fun sight to behold, as we have a HUGE variety of hairbows in all shapes, sizes and colors! Wow!

Shear0331.jpgAnother great thing about Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is the many different services we offer to kids and their parents. We love helping kids look and feel their best through great kids haircuts, but we also offer an amazing ear piercing experience where kids can get both ears pierced at the same time and get treated like a star! And if that wasn't exciting enough - at our La De Da Spa, we also offer fun manicures and pedicures for kids! It's just so cool to see all those smiling little girls in spa robes having the time of their life! First Haircuts are a special time as well, as we roll out the red carpet for this fun event in life with a special certificate, before and after picture and snippet of their hair.

Our Parties are also a fun aspect about Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids that many kids and their parents absolutely love. Pink Starlets (girls with pink wigs and aprons) whip up a fun updo, fancy nails, glittery makeup and glitter tattoos for each guest - and karaoke is enjoyed!  Some locations welcome boys with super hero parties!  All locations take a memory group photo for the Birthday girl to take home. With a Shear Madness Party, we take pride in working hard to help make your special occassion even more special.
