Most of the time when kids go to get their hair cut, they're lucky if they're able to watch a movie they've seen a thousand times or play with the single toy the salon keeps on hand. But even that doesn't generally happen. And because most salons don't bother to entertain kids, haircuts can be a difficult thing for them to sit through.
Yet, when kids go to Snip-its Kids Hair Salon and Spa, they get an adventure. Staffers first hand kids a Snip-its Adventure Club card, and then invite them to sing along with the salon's own cast of animated characters. There's Curly Comb, the adventurous Flyer Joe Dryer, and the group's leader, Snips, an anthropomorphized pair of scissors with a shock of brown hair. This same crew stars in computer games and activities that kids can play at each salon station, which dazzle eyes with more bright colors than a car covered in Lisa Frank stickers.
While their clients explore imaginative worlds, stylists use a proprietary line of natural and allergen-free products to create buzz cuts and bobs. At the end of the process, kids visit the Magic Box. The enchanted device awards kids a prize in exchange for a swatch of hair. On special occasions, stylists can also photograph a baby's first haircut or transport girls to Tinseltown during a Hollywood Party.
In order to make every salon experience exciting for kids and relaxing for adults, Snip-its Kids Hair Salon and Spa's partners with Autism Speaks and trains stylists to work with kids with autism.
Stylist Toni Hunt knows that no two heads of hair are exactly alike. And so, before taking out her scissors, she takes the time to carefully consult with each client about their hair and lifestyle to ensure they get the most appropriate cut or the styling treatment that will deliver the best results. Beyond being well versed in styles and color services ranging from classic to avant-garde, Toni offers several different types of smoothing treatments, including the Brazilian keratin formula and BioIonic Kera Smooth. But the choices don't stop there. She can also add extra length using two different extension methods: wefted extensions use a no-braid, no-glue process to secure hair for 6–8 weeks, while strand-by-strand extensions which last 3–5 months are a better choice for those in search of styling versatility, or those who like to get to know each new hair on a first-name basis.
After years of working at other salons, stylist Lisa Mayo Wilfong decided to venture out on her own, and opened Cutting Image Salon in New York?s East Village. To her delight, the three-chair salon earned tons of positive press in New York Magazine, Beauty News NYC, and the coloring book of her niece. So in 2007, she and her husband Stephen introduced the brand to North Carolina markets. The concept?high-fashion services at reasonable prices?was a big hit and led to the salon?s new slogan, ?NYC Style at NC Prices.? Today, the L?Oreal Professionnel salon operates out of three North Carolina locations. Junior, senior, and master stylists offer haircuts, coloring treatments, and chemical relaxers, all backed by a satisfaction guarantee.
