School is back in session! With the rush of back-to-school responsibilities and end of summer festivities, maybe you didn’t have time to get your little one a haircut. No worries, because we’re only a few days into the school year. However, since homework and after school activities have started, it’s likely hard to find the time to pay a visit to the hair salon. That’s why we’ve round up kid-friendly hair salons in various Brooklyn neighborhoods to make your trip easy and convenient. While some of these kid-friendly hair salons do only kids haircuts, others do haircuts for adults as well, so if your whole family needs a fresh look for the fall, head over to one of the family-friendly hair salons! We love how these Brooklyn hair salons create a kid-friendly environment with toys, sweets & treats, certificates, movies and more. Make your way to one of these kid-friendly hair salons today or this weekend!

We love the combination of haircuts and toys at Lulu’s Cuts & Toys! Lulu’s Cuts & Toys’ hairstylists are very experienced working with kids. During the haircut, you or your little one can pick out a DVD to play, or you can even bring your own! There are also a variety of toys for kids to play with to keep them entertained. After a haircut, kids get a balloon and a lollipop! Kids haircuts, ages 0-12, are $32. Lulu’s Cuts & Toys also do first haircuts, which come with a certificate and a lock of hair. If this is your second or third time coming to the salon and you really liked a particular hairstylist from your previous visit, you can request who you would like to do your kid’s haircut. Finally, there’s kid-friendly seating, like a red train seat, but these fun seats are first come, first serve, so they may not always be available.
