Checking Out L.A.'s Newest Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids Salon
Time for a Haircut!
Cookie Cutters is Fun, Interactive and Colorful
When Tia Frenchee isn’t around to give Benny and Toby their haircuts, we look for awesome places to give the boys a fun haircut experience:
Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids—Los Angeles had its grand opening last summer and we visited the salon just in time to give the boys a MUCH NEEDED trim:
It’s a colorful shop located at at 11740 San Vincente Blvd.
When kids walk in, they’re welcomed by a mini playground equipped with a slide and all— perfect to keep them entertained while they wait their turn.
There are currently three other Cookie Cutters’ Salons in the greater L.A. area but this is the first to open in the City of Los Angeles…yay!
The owners have plans to continue expanding the franchise throughout SoCal including opening shops in Thousand Oaks and Ventura.
But back to Cookie Cutters Los Angeles—
we arrived and well, the indoor playground was the boys’ first stop! Next to the slide, there are buckets of animal crackers, balloons and lollipops that serve as post-haircut treats for the little ones.
Each station on the cutting floor features unique fantasy chairs –
from race cars to firetrucks and airplanes – as well as individual televisions for the kids to watch shows and movies. And if you’re a video game fan like Benny, there are video games available too!
First-ever haircuts for toddlers receive a special commemorative package with photo and hair clipping….so cute!
The hairdressers are friendly and efficient
We expected to be there for at least an hour considering how squirmy Toby can be and because weekends tend to be busy for places like these (or so I thought). But the salon runs a very organized appointment operation! Cookie Cutters Los Angeles never felt too crowded or overwhelming while we were there.
As for Toby, I’ll start by sharing that he didn’t initially want to board his plane at his haircut station. He first wanted to climb the firetruck in the back of the salon (which serves as a shampoo station for kids). LOL!
Once he finally got situated in his airplane,
Leti, his hairdresser started trimming away. She was very gracious and Toby didn’t complain a single time!
Friends, both haircuts were completed in half hour!
We almost wanted to hang out there a little longer.
Scott Derrick, one of the salon co-owners explains the Cookie Cutters experience like this:
“Our goal is to provide all children, including those with special needs or sensory issues, with an enjoyable experience, pleasant memories and the desire to keep coming back,” he says. “Our stylists love kids, and Cookie Cutters has designed its approach to put children at ease if they are nervous about getting their haircut.”
The hours of operation are:
Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Thanks Cookie Cutters!
We now know have a new favorite place to visit when the boys need a trim!
Thanks for reading, friends!
