Is there a decent hairdresser for children in Canberra?

By Wini - 1 June 2011 22

I have had my 11 year old son’s hair cut again and, again it is terrible.

Why do hairdressers seem to want to cut boys’ hair as short as possible, and without any style at all?

I don’t want a haircut for $15 that is a ‘number four’ – please there must be someone in Canberra who can do a better job?

What’s Your opinion?

You’re worried about your 11 year old boy’s hairstyle? Sheesh, give the kid a break – he has years of this crap ahead of him as a teen and a young man! Keep it out of his eyes and stop worrying already!

And while you’re at it, stop spending money on clothes! Clothes for kids are so overrated. It’s amazing what you can do with a few potato sacks.

If those clothes cost $140 for a pair of designer jeans when you could get the kid a pair for $19 a K-Mart… yes… stop spending money on them.
These people are probably the same ones bleating about the unfair cuts to middle class welfare because they can’t afford the horrible cost of living.

A good hairdresser is a good hairdresser regardless of whether they’re cutting an adult’s or a child’s hair.

I think the problem lies with most hairdressers having special kids rates and reducing the time they spend on a haircut accordingly. Our local hairdresser does lots of kids’ hair and charges a fixed fee plus $2 per age, or something like that. It only costs me $17 to get my 6yo girl a haircut. I haven’t had the guts yet to tell them that I’d rather pay double for them to spend a twice as long on her hair so she doesn’t come out looking like a total nerd! Mind you, there was one woman there who managed to give her a far less geeky haircut in the allocated time. So – as above – lots depends on the hairdresser’s skill.

You should go to a hairdresser that charges at least $120 for the kids’ cuts and whatever you do, don’t buy their clothes from K-Mart or Big W. It is best to buy their clothes from a boutique retailer in Sydney. These simple tips will help separate them from the riff-raff. It is incredibly important that kids know their self-worth is found in how stylish they are.

Thanks deejay, gourmetmumma and shirty_bear – I will check out your recommendations. As for BimboGeek – I wrote “I DON”T want a haircut for $15.00”

Take in a picture of Justin Beiber if that’s what you want your kid to look like. Were you expecting a mind reader for $15?

My 2 kids (boy & girl) hate haircut days and the only way I can make it reasonably enjoyable besides bribery of sweet treats is to go to Just Cuts at Gungahlin. They have never had a bad haircut there, plus they set up a portable DVD player in front of them so the kid can watch a movie. They also do this cool thing with hair gel and make it look like the kids have spider webs in their hair…a novelty yes, but whatever works!

You should be careful. I’ve heard that hairdressers groom children.

you get what you pay for. I would recommend my hairdresser, who does the whole family but he is overseas for next few months.

He will set you back over $25 dollars as well.

Joe at Dickson Tradies Club. Good barber(/hairdresser), good bloke, actually enjoys some variation from the standard day-in-day-out buzz cut.
Popular, though – expect to book up to a week in advance.

perhaps you need to be a bit clearer about how you want his hair done?

Try Pauline at Just Cuts Belconnen. She is very protective of her own hair and very careful to follow her clients’ instructions to the letter.
