For a special outing with Mom, this place does the trick. My daughter loves the chairs, which look like giant toys. Its also fun that she can watch a show while getting her hair cut; for me that means she sits still so the lady can do her job! There is a bit much ‘brick-a-brack’ that makes the kids go bonkers with ‘want’ after the haircut. However, I find that if I set an expectation before we get there of my daughter getting to choose one thing, she respects that.
