Kids Kut offers fun styling time for tykes
I'm always up for checking out great places that cut kids' hair. So I was happy to find Kids Kut, a fun, kid-friendly shop on the Westside that caters to tykes and their love of all things entertainment.
We've tried the inexpensive, home-based route that was anything but a home run. I think the Flowbee would have been better than Ian's and my first attempt at styling. We've also taken CC to SuperCuts. Nothing wrong with that, but sometimes the wait time is just too long when you can't make an appointment. Can't really justify that for a 3-year-old's hair needs. Or my patience.
Kids Kut is a cute little salon in a Brentwood mini mall that also houses kids' restaurant Giggles 'n Hugs. Each styling chair offers a fun, sporty car that children can sit in while their hair is being spritzed, trimmed and combed. Nice distractions.
There's also a large TV screen that plays kids' videos -- which can sometimes be tricky when you need your child to look down, so the stylist can cut in the back. If there is a wait time before your appointment -- we didn't have one -- a tyke's corner offers video games, toys and a reading space.
Of course, I thought this visit would cost a minor fortune, but the prices are reasonable and just a hair higher than SuperCuts. (Sorry, couldn't resist.) However, they do have a coupon page that offers 10% off services and $4 off your first visit.
Oh, and moms and dads can get cuts there, too. Just not sure how we'd fit into one of those toy Jeeps.
