Whenever her kids' bangs began to fall into their eyes, Paula Thurman couldn't help but feel a twinge of anxiety. She knew a trip to the hairdresser was in store, which meant an hour of squirming, whining, and complaining about itchy bits of fallen hair. But it was on one such trip that inspiration struck. As Paula told reporters from the Kansas City Business Journal, ?as soon as I walked into the salon, a fire went off in me, and I knew it. I saw it and thought, ?I can do this.?? Although she had no experience running a salon or business, Paula had plenty experience keeping kids happy. She decided to combine that with keen motherly intuition and lessons learned from a few business classes to design a special salon for energetic youngsters?Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids was born.
Today, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids has sprouted locations across Kansas, Missouri, and into New Mexico. Amid the salons' mad splashes of color, cheerful stylists snip up new styles and arrange locks into playful pigtails and beehives that are perfectly sized to hide uneaten vegetables. While they work, their young clients sit in chairs shaped like race cars, watching movies or playing video games. As kids are getting cuts, moms can shop for a toy, bow, or bottle of root-beer-scented shampoo for their wee ones in the onsite boutique.
Salon & Spa De Crist owner Janel Schick encourages her staff of more than 10 skilled technicians to be "straight shooters" with their clients. As mentioned in her bio, Janel thinks keeping things honest is the best way to ensure clients receive the right treatments and most flattering hair trends for them. To help brighten and nourish complexions with facials and peels, the spa's aestheticians rely on Repêchage and Bioelements skincare products. On the salon floor, stylists expertly design flattering cuts and color for any hair type with Schwarzkopf, Goldwell hair-color, Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Aquage haircare products. The spa's massage therapist helps relax tight muscles with five massage modalities, and an on-staff permanent-makeup artist skillfully tattoos eyeliner and lip liner, and fills in brows that keep scurrying away.
Hair Slingers Salon’s staff of beauticians, some of whom bring 34 years of styling to each cut, revamps clients’ looks with a full menu of hair, mani-pedi, and waxing services. In a hardwood-floored studio, whimsically decorated with hanging paper snowflakes, stylists snip and paint through cuts and color treatments, lengthen existing manes with hair extensions, and transform frizz into sleek tresses with hair-straightening treatments such as Keratin Complex and Brazilian Blowout. Along with salon services, the staff runs an in-house boutique stocked full of cute accessories including purses, wallets, and eighteenth-century-style wigs.
