6 Great Grooming Services in Ottawa
For those unruly locks, here are six great grooming services in Ottawa.
We know that the products we use on our body need to be just as natural and safe as the food we put in it. That's why we heart Pretty Handsome, the newest kids' spa in town. They offer fun kiddie cuts, facials for all ages and make-up and manicures for tweens and teens. Birthday parties at the salon feature a wide selection of activities, including necklace-making, face painting, air-brushed glitter tattoos and fancy up-do hair. Put together loot bags from their selection of hair accessories, non-petroleum lip glosses and organic, natural body products like non-peeling Hopscotch Kids' nail polish, Bellaboo skin care and their own brand of organic, natural shampoo.
Goobers Kids Salon and Spa
In the west end there's Goobers Kids Salon and Spa. We like their prices—only $6.75 for the 'Bang Trim' and $7.50 for 'Buzz Man,' which is sometimes all we really need.
Barbershops are ideal for little boys. In fact, why not turn it into a father-son ritual? We've been quite happy with Francesco's at Carlingwood Mall. Dads appreciate the old school and unfussy vibe.
Melonhead Children's Hair Care
All kids love Melonhead at Place d'Orleans. It's the ultimate kid-friendly place in town with 'arcade seating' and lots of colour and distraction. We love the Baby's First Haircut certificate they offer with a small sample of that baby-fine hair wrapped up and a photo to commemorate the occasion. Older kids go mad for the ‘princess sparkles' for girls and coloured hair gel for the boys. Staff is friendly and helpful.
If the nasty gnats have found their way to your child's locks, look no further then to Lice Squad. Not only can you go to them at their Westboro clinic, but they can come to you with their in-home mobile service. And we love that pesticide-free products are used instead of harsh chemicals.
Getting your child to sit still for a haircut can sometimes seem like the work of magical fairies. Luckily, Chiquicuts Kids Hair Salon is full of sprites that can make it happen. Preschoolers, toddlers, and even babies with unruly hair will be calmed and charmed by the castle-themed atmosphere. And don't forget to ask about their array of themed parties—everything from a princess party to a pirate party.
