The Salon

The Salon

Kid-friendly doesn’t have to mean anti-adult.

Does this sound familiar?

You’re a little busy, a lot under-caffeinated Mama (or Papa) with a cell phone charged to about 30%. And your kid? A delightful, high-spirited wiggleworm in desperate need of a haircut.

Enter Sit Still.

For you, we’ve got cold brew (or wine), good music, a chill lounge with free wi-fi and a sweet little shop in case you’re in the mood to pick out some toys, gifts or hair product. For your kiddo, we’ve got toys, videos, cool seats and the most attentive, welcoming, understanding, patient — and fun — stylists in town. That can also serve up some really stylish hair.

Haircuts don’t have to be stressful.

We believe that every child deserves a good salon experience. So we’ve reserved specific hours for our kids with special needs: 9-10 a.m. on Mondays and Fridays. Give us a call for a consultation and to book by-appointment-only services, where we can be extra flexible — and extra supportive — in meeting you and your kiddo’s needs.

You’ve Got Q’s. We’ve Got A’s.

What is included in your full-service hair cut?
You’ll get a consultation, cut and style. We’ll work with you to create an individual look for your child that is stylin’ and requires the right amount of maintenance for your lifestyle. Need a shampoo? No problem — just add one on to any haircut.

What can I do to prepare my child for a good experience? 
You know your kiddo best — and what works for them — but here are a few helpful tips:

  • Chat them up! A little advance hype for the visit, and what they can expect, can make them much more excited about the prospect of some good hair.
  • Make sure they’re rested and fed. We’ve all been there: a tired/hungry kiddo = meltdown o’clock.
  • Arriving a little early (if possible) to get familiar with the salon is always a good idea. Not necessary though.
  • Words matter! Some kids may hear “cut” and think “ouch” — so maybe consider using a different term, like “hairstyle” or “hair do” or “hair trim”.  

Can I bring my child’s friends or my other children with me even if they’re not receiving a service?
Sure! Just don’t leave them unattended — and if they’re not getting a service, they need to stay in the lounge since there are scissors and sharp things in the salon.

How do I know what service to request? 
Take a few minutes to review our menu before you book your appointment. Most of the info is there — but if you have additional questions, just give us a call.

What kind of entertainment and/or distractions do you provide during the service?
We have child-appropriate programs playing on all of the tablets in the salon, custom-made car chairs, and a sweet selection of toys and books.

Do you provide alternatives to candy as an after service treat?
Yep! We have small toys for them to choose from as well as dentist-approved treats for purchase.
