For the first couple of years, we had to stay with the kiddie place because the boys SCREAMED through the entire haircut. Not only did we have to pay the inflated prices, we had to tip big. Then we started trying out non-kiddie places with HORRIFIC results. Anyone remember this horrible haircut from last March? No way to fix that terribleness:
So we pay the bigger prices because they are more patient with the kids and they play videos and give them lollipops. But still, the haircuts are generally "meh" and the stylists cut their hair insanely fast because they didn't seem like they wanted to be around children. Until this week.
I'm not sure what happened to the kiddie place because all of a sudden the hairstylists there are freaking hipsters (I'm talking LATFH hipster ... NSFW) with lots of style and were SUPER AWESOME with kids. They made the kids laugh and asked them questions and gave them amazing hair cuts.
Best quote of Alex's haircut, "You're so getting an Aveda haircut right here, you're going to be the hippest kid in preschool!"
Alex wouldn't let the guy spike his hair but he did let him spray mousse it and style it. Best hair cut ever.
