A Chat with Smiles N Styles
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Amazing place made for kids to have fun before, during, and after they have their haircuts. Huge waiting room with free arcades! Younger kids drive a car while getting a haircut; [and they] get to watch movies and cartoons. The older kids have a choice of playing Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, or PS3 on a 42-inch plasma television.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Jessica and Leo always wanted to bring something new and exciting to Ridgewood, and Kids’ Party Center and Kids’ Hair Salon is something that will definitely put a smile, not just on a kid’s face, but also on a parent’s face.
What do you love most about your job?
Kids always give you honest feedback. So, if I see smiles while we do styles, it’s very, very nice. When we do kids’ parties, seeing very happy kids and their very happy parents is awesome. To see employees laughing and having fun at work is something I love about this job.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
We specialize in children’ haircuts as well as special needs children, and to hear that the mother has never seen her child that beautiful because no other salons were able to devote as much energy and have as much patience as our stylist did is the best feedback I can hear from a parent.
