Baby and Toddler Haircuts
Ready for That First Baby Haircut?Like everything else in life, you have to start somewhere. What better place to piece together some peace within the stresses associated w/ tough toddler tresses – than w/ our sensational stylists at a salon that satisfies all the baby basics! Finagling fly-aways, braiding over bald spots, calibrating kinky curls – shear madness kids hair salon will help you w/ your first baby haircut, through all the toddler hair cuts, on into the teen-times, because your child’s haircuts are what we’re all about!
Safety First w/ All Our Haircuts for Kids!We want you to feel as comfortable w/ us as we feel w/ this field, which is why we have fine-tuned the fine art of cosmetology & kids. Our stylists have your baby’s best interests at heart. We never subject our subjects to the scary bowels of our shampoo bowls (unless you specifically ask for it). Instead, we mist our cuties w/ warm water & detanglers working through their hair w/ hospital-grade-disinfected combs & brushes. So there are never risks of injury or infection while inside any of our salons.Shear madness is green, too! Yes, our stores are colorful – but we are environmentally green as well. While we are definitely high-energy, there is never a risk of smog! There are no aerosols used, & no permanents or dyes. We keep our atmosphere as clean & welcoming as possible. Our salons are geared toward kids, so chemical services never provided & (save for some nail polish every now & again) the only scents you’ll be sniffing inside one of our stores will be the friendly fun fragrances of our ph-balanced, just-for-kids products made from natural ingredients!
Twice as Nice & Twice as Long for Those Toddler Hair Cuts!Taking extra time & care for your child’s first haircut helps us all get the most out of the experience. Our stylists want to make sure you capture each moment, & that we ease you through those sentimental first snips. This is why we take the time to talk about the transition & spare you the sadness of missing any photo-ops by giving that first cut twice as much time as our regular ones.Our baby’s first haircut package gets your bundle blissfully beautified while capturing that crucial first cut w/ before & after pics mounted on the cutest cardstock certificate – attached w/ a ribbon-wrapped ringlet of hair. The certificate is 8” x 10” & specially-designed for easy framing. Your stylist’s & your signatures seal the deal & date the ‘do your darling first got duded or dolled up! What better way to keep safe your keepsake than to mount the moment on your wall for all to see?maybe you are a memento mama (or even an anthology aunt), if so, we have paired pages available to fit into your favorite portfolio of firsts. This 12” x 12” two-page set perfectly matches this milestone (including the before & after pics & locks of hair). Plus, they have been sized to squeeze right into your scrapbook – & still have places for all those extra pictures!
Include the Whole Gang for That First Baby Haircut!With our movies going, suckers being licked, & locks being snipped, we know that some sweethearts still need help finding their zen inside our madtastic dens. This is another reason why we encourage you to bring the whole family, loving faces always help! Although many parents choose to let their little ones sit all big & tall on their own, we do have adult chairs, too! So make use of lap room or snuggle time for the lovies who are as scared as we are prepared. Sometimes a dad or a grandpa can make all the difference at distracting your darlings from crying those crocodile tears over the cool cuts the certainly can’t get anywhere else!grandma & grandpa will probably need to have their own copies of the momentous occasion, so we can always fill out extra certificates or even prepare matching scrapbook pages or photos. Just be sure to let your stylist know if you are interested in this package, as it will take extra time to prepare your priceless paperwork! Costs may vary depending on location & applicable specials, so call ahead to determine what package is right for you & just how long we can plan to have you w/ us! If you’re worried about keeping your little one up for the occasion, rest assured that we have mastered the mayhem (and managed the madness) for many, many years, so tired & tearful toddlers & tots are never too tangly or torturous a triumph for our seasoned stylists!
We Are a Kids Hair Salon!We know that getting the look you want is only half the battle – especially w/ kids – so our stylists listen & ask questions, trouble-shoot & teach parents how to best care for & accessorize their child’s look! We will show you pictures of kids haircuts, measure the length before we cut (hairstyles kids think they want are not always what they would get, unless we show them how short it will really be), & then as an added bonus, we will let you in on our tried & true tricks to get that picture-perfect look, too! Our goal is to earn your trust & keep your business, so our services are very reasonably priced. We know parents like to keep their children well-groomed & grinning, so you can expect top-dollar service for a bargain of the price – which makes it possible to bring those boys in every 4-6 weeks! Plus, w/ all our ph-balanced just-for-kids styling aids, your little ones can stay all gussied up longer w/ their new kids haircut!
Children's Haircuts Are Our Specialty…You might be asking yourselves how we do them so well, w/ trained stylists (who sling hair faster than edward scissor-hands & move w/ their targets like michael jordan on defense), flat-screened tvs, dvd-players, & playstation2s at every station – it’s no wonder we can whip & whirl around even the rowdiest ringlet-ridden warriors! Our employees know how to put the fun in functionality & more often than not, they also add the funk! We have music playing at all times, movies at every station, gaming units for the older children, & suckers & bubbles & misters for all! In an attempt to ease your load, we also offer a waiting area & retail boutique to occupy the multi-tasker in us all!
How the Haircut for Kids Is a Success!At shear madness movies & games are just a part of the attractive atmosphere for your would-be runaways. Our kids hair salons let your dale earnhardt, jr.’s manhandle lightning mcqueen while soon-to-be danica patricks drive their very own barbie jeeps at daring speeds & scream at scary decibels for their girls or boys haircuts! You see, for the youngsters, we have mounted cars, so the only way your little one is really driving out of here will be w/ a fresh new ‘do (and plenty of suckers to boot)! Meanwhile, our teens & tweens can comfortably sink into the plush neon “grown-up” chairs, while we make sure to never get even a snip out of place!
Bang Trims Only
Bang Trim – Bang Cut – Bang, Bang, Bangs!Not all haircuts need to be drastic, daring, or even the entire head for that matter! That’s why shear madness offers our beautimous bang trims! The service is available for a myriad of reasons, including those times you want to get your fine femmes & fellows looking flawless for family functions! Haircuts w/ bangs are positively perfect when you’re growing out your little one’s locks & still want to see those beautiful baby blues hidden behind that bushel of blonde. Then there’s in-between times, when the trouble of going toe-to-toe w/ your toddler towhead is too tough to think about – our bang cuts have got you covered!choosing this partial-head option is cost-effective, too, at less than half the price of a full haircut! We all know boys will be boys, so letting it grow is sometimes the easiest answer for peace-keeping parents. However, have no fear! Settling for the surfer look is not synonymous w/ voluntarily voting for vagabond – we can help your handsome headstrong grow out those troubling tops while saving you from seeing those shaggy strands stick out over the ears! Whether your desired look is to cut just the bangs on your beautiful belle (while leaving those luscious land-sliding locks in back) or only trimming around the ears & neck of your handsome man in time for that perfect snap, we can show you how to layer bangs, how to style your bangs, & how to help your bangs w/ product!
Are Hairstyles w/ Bangs Right for Your Little One?Many older girls draw attention to their eyes by cutting their hair to leave long foreheads behind blunt or large noses laying side-by-side w/ swept bangs. Jaw lines can be softened or hardened depending on the style, so when is it a good choice for your child to bring bangs to their manes? Certainly, face shape should play a part in your decision-making, so our stylists will help explain the pros & cons of every bang cut style. Young children tend to need help controlling annoying cowlicks, while babies sometimes seem to successfully get strands stuck in their eyes when they first start scooting & crawling on their own. To keep long hairs from blocking their view (or as a way to avoid a hair potion for the wild wigs of the harry potter’s out there) bang cuts will make handling the hairiest of headstrongs extremely more manageable & mane-ly magnificent!always remember to consider your child’s hair type, hair texture, & face shape when choosing to cut their cute little coifs.
How to Style Your Bangs:We typically choose our medium hold vanilla freeze hairspray, designed to control fly-away & static-y hairs & create smooth styles. This ultra-fine styling mist is used to give hair lift, direction & control. Depending on your child’s age & their hair type, you might also consider our grape jam or mango mousse – both give the best results in shorter hair styles, while providing just the right pliability to style sensibly without creating that dreaded helmet head! More info on these items is available on our blog!

This is why we here at shear madness encourage you to have pictures available of the desired look. Most importantly, we ask that you arrive w/ your hair “up-do ready.” over the years, we have found that this is best accomplished by doing the following
The Night Before
Washing the HairSo it is completely dry in time for curling or straightening
Adding Any Product That Would Give the Hair Better PliabilityPerhaps a mousse or curl boost, just for added texture
Avoid Leave-in Conditioners or Hair MasksSo the hair is not too silky smooth that we cannot keep it up!
Brush the Hair Thoroughly UnderneathNothing is worse than trying to pull up on tender hairs that are tangled at the base of the neck!
