Top 3 Kid’s Hair Disasters: Turning a Hair-don’t into a Hairdo

Pigtails & Crewcuts works with parents and children to turn bad hair days into good hair days.

Atlanta, Georgia (August 06, 2013) — It happens more than you might think: Gum gets mysteriously stuck in Kennedy’s curls; marker makes its way into Louie’s locks; the ponytail on Eileen goes green from chlorine. Pigtails & Crewcuts, a children’s hair salon franchise with more than 35 locations across the nation, regularly turns bad hair days to good. In fact, the salon recently created a video series illustrating a good-humored dramatization of the challenges it regularly sees.

According to salon owners at Pigtails & Crewcuts, the following kid’s hair disasters are the most common:

  1. Sibling Cutlery. Brothers and sisters have a way with scissors, but their way is rarely considered “shear genius.” The stylists at Pigtails & Crewcuts regularly work with hair of all lengths (and angles) to return it to its photo-ready state. (Note: parents, while more skilled than siblings, have also been known to produce similar less-than-ideal haircuts).
  2. Foreign Invasion. While gum is the most common culprit, stylists across the country have seen their share of foreign objects lodged in hair, such as candy, paint, peanut butter, lotion and more. While moms and dads are often quick to hop on the internet to find a solution, this is a situation that’s often best left to the pros.
  3. Jamaican Me Crazy. Kids (and, often, their parents) love getting their hair braided on vacation. But what looked cute for a few days on the island has a way of getting matted and dirty on the mainland. Stylists are happy to help take the “dread” out of dreadlocks and return your child’s hair to its natural state.

Does your family have a hair disaster relief plan? If not, it’s time to get acquainted with your local Pigtails & Crewcuts, where stylists are adept at taking care of business, whether it’s gum, make-up, color, food, scissors or any other common kid-tastrophe — no questions asked. You never know when such services will come in handy.
