10 of the Best Places to Go for Your Child’s First Haircut in Houston

10firstHaircutsA child’s first hair cut is a milestone worth remembering, whether he’s got long, flowing locks or just a few wisps that need to be tamed. When it comes to salons, however, not all are created equal in terms of meeting the needs of parents and their children. Your little one may not be comfortable in a high-end salon filled with cutting-edge stylists, and those haute couture stylists may be less than eager to tackle haircuts for children. These ten Houston salons are known for their specialization and focus on kids, making them ideal choices for your child’s first experience with the cape and clippers.

1. Little Lords and Ladies Children’s Beauty Salon and Boutique

Little Lords and Ladies is more than just a kids’ salon, it’s also a high-end boutique. If you want to pick up a cute new outfit to celebrate Baby’s new hairdo, Little Lords and Ladies should be at the top of your list. The salon and boutique was established in 1984, giving the group almost three decades of experience in keeping Houston kids stylish.

2. Cool Cuts 4 Kids

The First Haircut Program at Cool Cuts 4 Kids is designed with sentimental parents in mind. A Cool Cuts 4 Kids stylist will not only give your little one the trim that she needs, but also present you with a certificate that features a lock of her hair. For an extra $1.99, you can even pick up a magnetic picture frame for a snapshot of the big moment. Don’t forget your camera!

3. Snip-its of Rice Village

Snip-its is a franchise with locations in more than half of the states in the Union, but the Rice Village location is a particular favorite among Houston parents. The bright colors and whimsical decor is sure to enchant little ones, while games and activities keep them engaged as an experienced stylist with special training to help them cater to kids gives your child his very first haircut.

4. TGF Hair Salon

The Parents Connect program sponsored by kids’ programming giant Nickelodeon voted TGF Salon the winner of their 2008 Parents’ Picks award for the Best Haircut for Teens in Houston. While your child isn’t likely to reach his teen years without ever experiencing his first haircut, the reasonable prices along with the friendly and knowledgeable staff will still make a big impression on your pint-sized client.

5. Sweet and Sassy

Sweet and Sassy in The Woodlands is a favorite destination for birthday party spa days for the smaller set, but can also cater to the needs of even the youngest customer. Older girls can get pedicures and manicures just like Mom does, while little ones have their first experience with the snipping action.

6. Supercuts

There’s something to be said for speed, efficiency and a great value. The Supercuts chain has locations all over the country, and is successful for a reason: the stylists there know the secret to getting you in and out in a hurry. When little ones are simply too frantic about the experience of having their first haircut to enjoy cartoonish décor or big-kid pampering products, a nationwide chain may be the way to go.

7. MasterCuts

The MasterCuts chain is usually housed in a shopping mall, and the Almeda Mall location is no exception. Mastercuts specializes in timelessly cool styles for the entire family, from the youngest to the oldest.

8. Pigtails and Crew Cuts

Billed as a salon for kids, Pigtails and Crewcuts features not only a First Haircut package for their smallest customers, but also a full range of fun events for older kids like a Girls and Dolls movie night in which little girls and their favorite American Girl doll can get matching hairstyles before watching an American Doll movie. Pigtails and Crewcuts also features services directed at repairing the hair of expensive dolls that have seen better days.

9. Kids Kuts & Teen Kuts

The name says it all at this Bellaire Boulevard salon for youngsters. Movies and games are provided to keep kids occupied, and the stylists are trained to help little ones feel more at ease during the sometimes-stressful experience of a first haircut.

10. Behold the Beauty

If you’re a parent who believes that your child should have only the finest things in life from the earliest age, why not spring for a trip to a higher-end salon? Behold the Beauty does offer kids’ services in a fashionable setting.

While it may be tempting to take your child’s first haircut into your own hands so that you’re able to document the milestone the way you want, it’s wise to keep in mind that there’s a reason why stylists are educated and tested before obtaining their license. Kids’ hair tends to grow slower than their adult counterparts, so your little one will be rocking a lopsided ‘do for quite a while if you make a mistake. These professionals are among the best in the Houston area when it comes to kids’ haircuts, and have earned their reputation through years of experience and service to the community.
