February 13, 2009 // Franchising.com // Natick, MASS. – Cue the laughter and giggles. Snip-its (www.snipits.com), the fastest growing franchise of children's hair salons in the U.S, will open its first West Coast location in Palo Alto, California in late March at Town & Country Village at 855 El Camino Real. Designed to ease the haircutting fears of children, Snip-its provides an entertaining and magical destination for premium children's haircuts and spa services. The 1,700 sq. ft. salon will offer a complete line of natural hair care products plus two children's party rooms for memorable birthday parties.
"I'm thrilled to bring the high-quality Snip-its concept to California. Snip-its is a magical experience for children that turns an ordinary hair salon visit into an extraordinary adventure that ends with a smile," said Snip-its Palo Alto owner Daniel Liberman. "Moms can feel good about visiting Snip-its. Not only do we have specially trained hair stylists, but children can look and feel their best with our many spa services and delightful birthday parties. I look forward to Snip-its becoming a part of the community."
Snip-its' no-tears haircut experience is weaved with vibrant colors and reminds many children of a Saturday morning cartoon. The salon interior features a cast of Snip-its own branded animated cartoon characters: Snips, Jean Luc le Spritz, Curly Comb, Flyer Joe Dryer, the Clip-ette Sisters, and Maranga Mirror plus animated videos, salon-tailored educational computer games and 'cushy' parents chairs so Moms can sit nearby. At the end of each visit, children receive a prize in exchange for a lock of hair from the 'Magic Box.'
"Snip-its caters toward entrepreneur spirits and Daniel is a perfect example of an owner with the drive and determination to succeed," said James George, the CEO of Snip-its. "We wish him much success."
Snip-its was founded in 1995 by California native, Joanna Meiseles, the daughter of Hollywood producer, Robert Blumofe credited with the movie, Yours, Mine and Ours and is the granddaughter of famed comedian Jack Benny. After a heartbreaking visit to an 'adult' salon with her then young son, the first-time entrepreneur established the entertainment-styled salon with the goal to make children's hair care a positive fun-filled adventure for families. The Palo Alto location marks the 67th Snip-its location.
