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.

At Sport Clips, you won't experience the luxury of fine flower arrangements in the corners, soothing soft rock flowing from the speakers, or TVs tuned to your stories on daytime television; instead, you'll be engulfed in a man salon stocked with sports memorabilia, sports television, and sporty stylists sporting specializations in guys' cuts and sports. Grab a Groupon to plan ahead for the off-season. Return post-cut for a complimentary follow-up neck trim designed to keep girthing trapezius muscles in full view.
Gwen Sinclair always had the calling to help people. Her father had bounced back from severe back surgery in a matter of weeks and attributed his speedy recovery to the healing power found in his twice-monthly massage. That sealed the deal for Sinclair; after completing massage-therapy school, she opened Gwen of All Trades.
As their treatments begin in this cozy 110 year-old renovated house, clients meet with Sinclair, who consults with them about their treatment goals. She then administers a variety of massage techniques.
Above all else, Gwen comes to work in search of more success stories. Her favorite involves a client who exited the treatment room post-session by hopping on one foot. When Sinclair questioned her gait, the client gave a triumphant smile before telling her that, before the massage, she wasn't able to put pressure on that foot! Her limp banished, the client is now a massage true believer and continues to hop into and out of Sinclair's treatment room once a month.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
