The Childrens Salon
Spiky Tales officially opened its doors in March 2013. Being a mother i had a bit of inspiration behind the concept of Spiky-Tales... I wanted a unique Salon that welcomed all ages allowing them to feel at home.
We how to relate to children especially when they might have other ideas so we approach them at their level.
I also wanted a salon for mums to come & know their kids are welcome even if the kids just want to play while mum gets pampered.
I wanted a safe environment for Special Needs Children who have sensory issues to be free to roam the salon whilst getting a hair cut.
My policy is to strive to treat every little client as if they were family, from 1st haircuts receiving their 'Hair Diploma" to school haircuts is so rewarding to us , so come in and let the fun begin, relax and let us hair magicians do our thing with your childrens hair!!
1st Hair Cut Diploma
Your Childs milestones are so monumental at any age. This is why we add a little extra importance to your little persons 1st hair cut.
We ask you you get your cameras ready to capture the 1st snip and carefully put it aside then attach and fill in your keepsake 1st Haircut diploma.
A cuddle and picture is required to finish the service followed by some well deserved play time with the toys.
Special Needs Children
Here Catherine's Cutting It we appreciate that your beautiful little angels are special in their own way.
I wanted a place for all children to feel welcome, be at home so that they feel safe and allow a familiar friendly face to tend to their hair needs.
The way they react to certain situations or noises are different as well; particularly if your child has special needs, having this in mind, was one of the driving forces behind the concept of Spiky-Tales Hairdressing For Kids.
So when you make your appointment please advise us if you require a little extra time for your angel, so we can make them feel as comfortable as possible.
And here's a few tips to ensure your visit is pleasant as possible and yearning you back time & time again....
-Before your appointment show you child some videos of children getting their haircut and reinforce the positive vibes of the haircut.
-Be sure to arrive a little earlier for your appointment so your child can get a feel of their surroundings.
- Bring with you any special toys, games, videos, food or objects that are a comfort to your child. If needed we do have a wide range of toys, all the kids love bubbles.
-Bring a spare change of clothing just in case the Towel & Cape is not required!
-If needed mum, dad, Nan, pop or siblings get a haircut at the same time to show how its done!
-Show your child around the salon and get them familiar with the Capes, Clippers, Neck Brush and Combs.
-During & After the service, please praise your angel for a 'Job Well Done' and don't forget a cuddle and picture is required to finish the service followed by some well deserved play time with the toys and of course if they are allowed a lolly or biscuit for a treat at the end.
I hope all this above information gives you a sense/feeling of how much we at Catherine's Cutting It really do take the time, absolute care & understanding for your Special Needs Child...... See you soon...
