"In 2010, my wife and I were frustrated. We’d been taking our young twin boys to different salons in the Westminster, Colorado area, and found that the adult-centric businesses were a poor fit for our family. One salon actually told us it would be best if we didn’t come back, because both of our boys were crying during their haircuts (they’re 4, it happens!). In addition, one of our children has special needs, and the salons we were visiting, unfortunately, didn’t know how to respond to those. We’d both grown up in the area, and knew that we were not alone in our frustration. We saw the opportunity to open a kids’ salon franchise that welcomed everyone with open arms—laughing or crying, special needs or not. And that’s just what we’ve done. With the guidance of the Pigtails & Crewcuts team, we work hard to give our customers the salon services we, as parents, always hoped to find. We offer “quiet” appointments to kids with special needs, and really work hard to give all children—and their parents—a memorable, stress-free experience. The response has been amazing. I recently left my career in the medical device business to focus solely on the salon. Rachel enjoys making some of the headbands and bows that we sell, and she handles ordering all of the merchandise, most of which comes from local moms. With flexible schedules, we’re both able to devote the time needed to our sons. It’s truly a family business."

"I own two Pigtails & Crewcuts salons in Georgia (one is in Roswell and the other is in West Cobb) along with my husband, Scott. I opened the first kids’ salon franchise because I was frustrated with my own experiences, as a parent, with kids’ haircuts. Driving my two children all over town, I watched them sit (and sometimes cry) through too many mediocre or even bad cuts at salons aimed at adults. I wanted a place that really catered to all children, a place where kids can laugh their heads off or have a melt down and not be met with judgment. I used to be a social worker, so I know the importance of a supportive, fun and friendly environment for everyone. Seeing that need in my town, I took matters into my own hands and opened my first Pigtails & Crewcuts. The first experience was so positive that in 2010, I opened a second location. I really enjoy being a business owner. It allows me a flexible schedule, so I can be there for my family. And I love my customers. I consider them a part of my extended Pigtails & Crewcuts family. Through them, I get to be a part of so many firsts—first haircut, first day at school, first lost tooth, first trip to Disney World and the list goes on. As a franchise owner, I receive the support and guidance of the corporate office, but I also get to tailor the salon to fit within my own community. I sell the kinds of organic products that I use on my own children, and I buy bows and hair accessories from local moms. Being a business owner also allows me a chance to give back. I regularly spearhead back-to-school drives and food drives. And last year, alone, we carried out 200 haircuts for Locks of Love, with the kids donating their hair to sick children in need. At Pigtails & Crewcuts, I’m doing my part to make this town, and this world, a better place, one child at a time."
