Whether on the franchising end or the consumer end, families benefit from a business concept that puts the needs of children front and center in the hair salon setting. A health and beauty franchise idea that started out of a local small business in Atlanta, Georgia is now present in various U.S. states featuring an excellent business model for parents looking to stay focused on both family needs and career interests.
Parents entering a hair salon for their child’s first cut may come with a measure of apprehension. How children handle their first haircut (and even repeat cuts thereafter!) depends on the individual temperament of the child as well as the setting, though it isn’t uncommon for children to need special attention and care.
This is where Pigtails & Crewcuts steps in. Everything about the salon setting, from the chairs to the toys to the one-on-one attention received is focused on making the experience fun, relaxing, and entertaining for kids. Parents are thus put at ease, able to enjoy the experience alongside their child, while expert stylists take care of everything.
The kid-centric hair salon is relatively new on the scene, both in franchising and in the general salon industry. Nonetheless, the concept is proving incredibly successful across the country for investing franchise partners who want to run their own flexible and family-oriented business. The situation is truly a win-win both for parents bringing their children in for a cut and for parents seeking the entrepreneurial career route through small business operation.
Having a family is time consuming and demanding, an achievement that often especially impacts the lives of women. Many women holding positions as current franchisees were once juggling their role as mother with career prospects, looking for an ideal way to fit both parenthood and the need for a separate individual self together. These very same women found an opportunity to express that individual self though operating their own business instead of taking on high-pressure corporate positions.
This scenario is precisely how Pigtails & Crewcuts women business owners are managing to support their families. By supervising a professional team of qualified stylists on-location, franchisees are able to maintain a flexible schedule—one that fosters a healthy identity and balance between family and career. The physical presence of franchisees is not required 100% of the time, so parents can more easily organize a workable schedule that makes room for the most important things in life.
