Style File: Haircut Hangout
From frightening fashions to spending too much on supplies, preparing your child for school can be a major chore. But if getting your little one a haircut is a hair-raising experience, there is hope after all. In tonight's Style File, we found a place where getting a snip is a snap.
WSVN--For ladies, there's the salon. For men - the barber shop. But now in South Florida, there's a place where only kids can get a clip.
7-years-old Max Wolf: "I just want to look cool."
No problem. At the Haircut Hangout in Hollywood, not only will your locks look good, you'll have a good time in the process.
7-years-old Mia Villiers-Furte: "Cause its fun."
That's right mom and dad, stop pulling your hair out. Because this place is on the "cutting edge." From video games to cartoons - once you enter your child is automatically entertained.
Father of four, Alex Wolf: "My children are very excited to come here. They're always excited to come here."
And why not. While you're getting your "do" done, you can let your imagination run wild. Pretend you're a pilot or imagine you're an artist, owner Denni Weisler enjoys just kidding around.
Denni Weisler from Haircut Hangout For Kids: "Its easier than working with adults."
That's the good news -- the bad news she's seen the sponge bob movie seven hundred times in 7 weeks.
Denni Weisler: "You can watch it 10 times and every kid will tell you something different about it."
But parents be warned. There is an added attraction. Not only will you pay for a trim, but you may also end up buying a toy...If your child can reach.
Denni Weisler: "To me, its all fun energy."
To the kids, it's all well worth it. Sitting still was never this much fun.
Alex Wolf: "They're all even and nice and ready to go to school."
Mia Villiers-Furte: "Its real style file-ish."
The Haircut Hangout charges 25 dollars per child. Adults - or should we say kids at heart - can also get a cut for thirty dollars.
