Children who develop poor hair habits early in life often grow up holding their combs backward or parting their mohawks on the wrong side. Protect your progeny from a lifetime of follicular gaffes with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a children's haircut (newborns–17 years) at Chelsea Shears, plus either four batting-cage tokens or a ticket to the Little Athletes Exploration Center, all located at the Field House at Chelsea Piers on 23rd Street (up to a $37 value).
The hair masters at Chelsea Shears, a new addition to the Field House at Chelsea Piers, do their utmost to improve each adolescent 'do while individual TVs and DVD players keep even hyperactive tykes entertained. Young children will beg for seats in the hair-cuttery’s stylish airplane seats, and teenagers will sullenly demand them. After their charges have clambered into cockpits, the professional barbers at Chelsea Shears administer artful haircuts (up to a $25 value) with the steady hand and ample skill of a surgeon defusing a ticking spleen.
After their mane trims, miniature humans can flaunt their faux-hawks inside a pitching zoo or at the Little Athletes Exploration Center (up to a $12 value)—however, they must partake of these sportivities on the same day they get the haircut.
The exploration center is aimed at children 6 months–4 years old, who can charge through a mini obstacle course, wade through a ball pit, and postulate or rebut theories of gravity on a slide. With four tokens to the batting cage, young athletes can blast 40 robot-grade pitches into the netting, imagining the roar of the crowd and the bitter tears of their opponents.
