Tips for the best kids haircut experience
Begin a conversation three to four days before your Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids hair appointment. This provides your child an opportunity to ask questions and help you prepare them. Avoid words like “cut” and instead share that your child will be going to have a ‘style’ or ‘trim’.
Talk to your child about how much fun they’ll have at the appointment. Let them know you’re looking forward to their trim or new style. When they see that you’re looking forward to the experience, they will too.
The Right Time
Best haircut experiences happen when children are rested and well fed. If children are cranky, anxious or tired, the haircut should wait. Often, mornings are the best for haircuts as children are rested and ready for fun.
Bring a Photo
Bring a picture of the hairstyle you’d like. Best haircuts occur when we can see the style you’d like. We also have a “look-book” for your convenience. Spend some time looking at the styles. You’re sure to find one you like.
Have your child bring a favorite, small toy or snack. These items can help your child stay calm and keep his/her hands occupied. Most Sharkey’s locations offer dippin’ dots!
