BACK-TO-SCHOOL HAIRCUTS AT SCISSOR KIDS
When the former owner of Scissor Kids decided to sell the business in June of last year, it was a no-brainer for long-time employee, Lisa Albert to purchase it. She's been working there since it opened in 1994. Her love for this cozy, kid-friendly salon shines through when she talks. Lisa has a passion for kids and enjoys making their haircut experience one to remember. They do everything they can to cater to little ones and make things FUN. There's a play area while you wait and mini vehicles for them to sit in while they get their haircut. They even give them a "1st haircut" certificate (how cute?!). Call (860.633.1833) or email (Scissorkids3@gmail.com) to make an appointment this week for back-to-school and tell them we sent you!
