Grown-ups cherish a day of pampering at the salon. For little ones though, getting a haircut can be an uncomfortable, even frightening, experience. Help your child ease into the barber’s chair by bringing him to these fun, family-friendly salons that cater especially to kids. 1. Peppermint Salon
Just passing by this salon at the mall can entice the whole family to get a haircut. The vintage-designed interior sits right between fun and chic. Our favorite part? The vintage car salon seats. Peppermint can do cuts, trims and styling to kids 6 months old and up. If it’s your child’s first haircut, you may be interested in their “1st Haircut Certificate” package that includes before-and-after photos and a hair lock keepsake. They also do grown-ups, so you can get your hair and nails done while you wait. Find their full list of services for kids here.
Peppermint Salon is at Basement 1 SM AURA Premier, Taguig City (553-3597).
2. Bowmanbear Barber Shop
Make it a family affair and take the whole clan here. Bowmanbear has hair treatments and shaves for dad; facials, massages, hair removal and nail services for mom; and a whole menu just for kids. The kid's space is called Bowmanbear’s Bear Park where the kids can have haircuts, hairstyling (complete with accessories), nail services, massages and facials. We like that they also have kids’ services for lice elimination, getting rid of tangles and curls, and treating cradle cap. Find their full list of services for kids here.
Bowmanbear Barber Shop is at Lower Ground, Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong City (637-4385).
3. Robots & Dolls
With an open-floor set-up, you would think there was a kiddie party going on at for-kids-only Robots & Dolls. The space is vibrant and colorful. Aside from cuts for kids 1 year old and up, they also offer hair treatments, nail services and foot spas. And, if it’s nearing your child’s birthday, they also have a spa party package that's perfect for kikay kids.
Robots & Dolls is at 2/F Robinsons Place Las Piñas (887-2435).
