Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety—which is of paramount concern—by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving hairs as fresh as the day they were born. While the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of activities and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
