If hair could talk, it would have a mouth, transforming stylish head wraps into cruel mufflers and skinny headbands into orthodontia. Today's Groupon gives hair a voice without the expensive dental upkeep: for $9, you get a kids' haircut at Snip-its (a $17.95 value). This Groupon is valid at the Chandler and Gilbert locations.

Providing 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 locks as fresh as the day they were born. After the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of animated gadgets and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.

Ensuring kids have a fuss-free haircut doesn’t have to entail bribing them with chocolates or making soothing ocean sounds into their ears the entire time. Snip-its offers a memorable hair-taming experience so kids can’t wait to come back, forcing them to resort to crafting wigs from leftover spaghetti to warrant a quick return trip.

Snip-Its

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, 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 partners with Autism Speaks and trains stylists to work with kids with autism.
