Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's Groupon to Shear Fun in Avon. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get a kids' haircut (a $13.95 value).
- For $25, you get a BFF posh polish and pedicure for two kids (a $50 value).
Shear Fun’s smiling stylists pamper pintsize patrons in a shop with brightly colored furniture and kid-friendly salon chairs. Before a haircut, youngsters plop into chairs in the shape of Thomas the Tank Engine, a Barbie jeep, or zippy race car Lightning McQueen that beckon fertile imaginations to flourish. While a sociable and accommodating stylist gently snips locks, pintsize clients remain captivated by cartoons on screens mounted to the side of each mirror that let them catch up on Schoolhouse Rock or animated re-enactments of past UN summits. Best friends plop down on padded violet benches and stick feet in sinks during their dual pedicure. As little bodies giggle together, propped up against plush jewel-toned pillows, aestheticians pamper petite paws with nail shaping and a vibrant polish of choice. Girls’ hands cease seething in jealousy after fingernails enjoy coats of polish as well, and BFFs depart the salon together to show off their gilded digits to family, friends, and framed Tiger Beat posters featuring a young, hunky Ben Franklin.
A young boy sits atop a yellow motorcycle, his hair falling in shaggy wisps across his forehead. He looks down at the speedometer and makes gleeful revving noises, his focus on the machine rendering him oblivious to the woman quickly snipping off his hair. So transpires a typical salon appointment at Shear Fun, where a team of friendly stylists grooms boys and girls alike within an imaginative, colorfully decorated space.
The cheery yellow walls and smiling staff coax forth smiles from even the most apprehensive of young visitors, making them comfortable as they snuggle into vehicle-shaped chairs. The team performs various salon services, including styling hair, installing feather extensions, and bestowing first haircuts upon youngsters. In their spa, visitors enjoy services such as pedicures, mother-daughter manicures, and BFF mani-pedis for those who have not yet been betrothed to a prince or princess.
