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 do Parents think of Our Kids Salon Franchise?

Posted by Matthew S on Fri, Jan 13, 2017 @ 14:01 PM

10parents.jpg

Here at Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, we're truly a place "Where Every Child Matters". From our awesome great kids haircuts, to cool parties, ear piercing, kids retail, jewelry and so much more, we're always having fun figuring out new ways to bring a smile to the parents and kids who visit one of our locations throughout the United States. In this past year alone, we've had thousands of kids walk through our doors into a magical world where they (and their parents) know they'll be treated like a star! This is why we thought it would be great to share the following reviews that parents have sent our way after visiting!

Just took 3 of my kiddos there today. My son got to play the xbox (he’s 10) while my girls got to watch a movie. I think they were nice, accommodating and the girls’ hair turned out super cute! - Michele

Alicia is awesome and so patient with my son who has special needs and getting a haircut is not an easy thing for him. I have no idea how she stays so calm and gets a great cut on his hair. I don't know what we would do without her. - Sonja

My son is almost 2 and this was his 3rd experience getting his haircut (we decided to try somewhere new this time). He isn't very cooperative, and in fact hates getting his haircut!! Your stylist was awesome with getting the job done!! I wish I asked for her name, but it was quite chaotic and I forgot to ask in the midst of everything. We will definitely be back, and I was super happy with the cut, how professional she was, and how she got the job done with patience!! Thank you! - Jenn

I just wanted to take the time to say thank you and tell you about the incredible experience we had at your salon! My 2.5 year old son is pretty resilient to haircuts and usually puts up quite a struggle.   Our hairdresser, Stephanie, was so patient with him and did everything to make him feel comfortable .  My son ended up sitting on my husband's lap while Stephanie cut his hair.  He loved watching cartoons and was so well-behaved as she gave him an amazing haircut! I cannot thank you enough for this great experience!  I have already told my friends and we will definitely be back! - Amy

I brought my son for his very first haircut today at your Amherst, NY location. The stylist did such a great job! She was quick and accurate! I will never take my children to another salon. Thanks for such a great experience! - Heather

I'd just like to say my sons hair looks amazing & you guys did an amazing job! Definitely recommending you guys to everybody I know. Thank you! - Meagin

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience we had at Shear Madness this past Sunday.  My son is 18 months old and this was his 4th haircut.  His last few were not very good and to be honest we were always a bit unhappy with the cleanliness of the kids' salons we had visited. When I walked in, I was so happy to see a clean, welcoming salon where I was comfortable letting my son run around and explore.  Our stylist Laura was wonderful with my son and listened to exactly what I wanted.  In addition, the cutting area was clean and my son LOVED the car! We are so happy to have found a place for him to get his hair cut. Thank you SO much! -Stephanie 

Love! Love! Love! This place!!! Took both girls here and they did an awesome job on their hair!!!!! This is the only place I will return to get their hair cut at!!! I had bad experiences at other hair cutting places for these children. - Diana

Brought my daughter and son this weekend to get their hair cuts. It’s an amazing place and great people! My son who usually freaks out about getting his hair cut was excited to pick out his car to sit in and let them cut his hair! Thank you for a great experience! We will be back!!! - Crystal

Awesome place! Took my 3yr old grandson to get his hair cut there, and he watched Spongebob on the little flatscreen by his airplane. He had a blast - it was so much fun just seeing him so excited!! - Lisa

5 tips to Encourage Healthy Lifestyles in Children

Posted by Matthew S on Tue, Nov 15, 2016 @ 15:11 PM

healthykids.jpgAt Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, delivering a great experience for kids is our specialty. Whether it's helping them (and their parents) feel great by getting a fantastic haircut, hosting an awesome party, or providing the very best in hair products, hair related accessories, toys and more, we love being able to share a little happiness with the world through what we do best! Because to us, EVERY child matters!

Kids today have a lot of options available to them in regards to food choices, clothing, entertainment, toys, indoor and outdoor activities and much more. Sometimes it seems like it can be a tough job as a new parent trying to wade through all the noise and figure out what's best for your special little girl or guy. As Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids loves working with kids, and because we're parents too, we thought we'd share some of our thoughts on helping encourage healthy lifestyles in your children.

1. Eating Right is Important! Help your kids start the day out with a healthy breakfast for both mental and physical benefits. Each meal is important of course, but breakfast can sometimes be one of those overlooked meals where kids feel rushed in eating it (in order to get to wherever they need to go for the day). It's important to encourage children to slow down while eating, chewing each bite properly. Also, sometimes kids may eat something that isn't so healthy in order to be on their way more quickly too (like a piece of pizza from the previous night, a candy bar, or a can of pop - yikes!). Plus, breakfast can be a great time to talk with your kids and help them get in a good frame of mind for the day ahead.

2. Taking Care of Your Body: In addition to eating right, helping kids know how to properly care for themselves is a great skill that prepares them for a healthy lifestyle as an adult. For example, establishing a habit of brushing teeth in the morning and evening before bed, drinking plenty of water each day, getting plenty of sleep, keeping their environment clean and proper hand and face washing are all important considerations in helping kids build a good foundation of caring for their body. 

3. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise! The benefits of good exercise can never be underestimated for people of all ages in our world today. Biking, walking and running are all good ways for kids to get out and exercise. Don't let the idea of exercise be a boring one either! For example, bike rides, running and walks can be to a different destination every day. You can also play little games as you exercise too, such as trying to spot certain birds as you're out, or counting certain colors of cars. And best of all, a lot of these can be done with your kids. Not only are you both getting exercise, but you're also getting in some great family time too! 

4. Entertainment: With the prevelance of electronic toys, phones, portable games and a huge range of entertainment options through televesion, sometimes kids start thinking that the only way to be entertained is via staring at a screen. However, encourage your kids to get outside and have fun taking walks, building forts, playing with toys outside, making crafts, reading a book, playing a board game, writing a story, drawing a picture or helping mom or dad out with an important task around the house. Sure, it's fine to play with the electronic toys a little each day, but too much may keep kids (and you) from missing out on a lot of other fun experiences!

5. Taking Care of Your Appearance: This one is a fun one, as it's a way for kids to really look and feel great about themselves. Help them learn how to properly comb their hair or pick out an outfit to wear for the day. As they get older, they'll be able to do this on their own - although hopefully they'll still seek you out sometimes for those important questions! But in those younger years, it's a great way to spend a little one-on-one time with your child, and help them see you as a source of encouragement and trustworthy council on helping them feel good before they start their day. And don't forget - at Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, we offer many great ways to help kids look and feel great about themselves too! We not only have cool haircuts and fantastic hair stylists that encourage and build kids up, but we have a carefully hand-picked selection of hairbows, jewelry, hair products, educational toys and much more designed to help kids feel great!

Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Signs Development Agreement for Southern California

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Jun 9, 2016 @ 11:06 AM

SouthCaOpening.jpgFirst Opening Expected in Orange County this Fall. Shear Madness Franchising, LLC of Overland Park, Kansas announced the signing of an Area Development Agreement covering 5 counties in Southern California. The agreement allows for multiple locations to be developed over a number of years. Doctor Andrew Elmasri of Lake Forest, California, a managing partner of California Children’s Salons, LLC and President of CA Anesthesia of Laguna Niguel California signed the agreement with Shear Madness Franchising in early May. The agreement calls for California Children’s Salons to open and develop multiple locations over an extended period of time. “We have a growing demographic of young families in Southern California, and we are excited to bring the unique concept Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids offers to this area,” commented Elmasri. “After visiting with management in Kansas City earlier this year, we feel like the opportunities for positive expansion is a great fit for our area.”

WelcomeElmasri.jpgJanon Otto, CEO for Shear Madness Franchising, also sees many opportunities in the California market. “With California’s large population base and impressive demographics, this is certainly a market that we’ve been interested in,” commented Otto. “Additionally, as we recently opened in New York State in December of last year, it gives us a presence on both the East and West coast – as well as allowing us to continue our goal of providing a fun and memorable haircutting experience for children across the nation.” Paula Thurman, a partner in the Franchising Company and COO commented, “We’ve always felt like the kid-friendly atmosphere of our stores would do well in California, it just came down to finding the right partner. Dr. Elmasri and his team share the same values and principles that we do, and we’re excited to have California Children’s Salons expanding the Shear Madness Brand in California.”

Shear Madness Franchising LLC, was founded in 2010 to expand the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids concept that was originally opened by Paula Thurman in 1997. Combining the magic of childhood with kids haircuts, parties, salon services and a fantastic kids boutique filled with toys, hair products, jewelry and more, Shear Madness currently has franchise locations open in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Iowa, New York and New Mexico.
