Zoo Cuts, a new hair salon for the entire family that recently opened in Palmetto Bay, will host its grand opening celebration on Saturday, Oct. 9, and will offer $10 haircuts all day.
With themed station chairs and Disney movies for the little ones, and PlayStation and Wii for older children, getting a haircut has never been this much fun.
“I invite the whole community to come by for our grand opening, see the salon and get a haircut with us for the first time,” said Luis Madrid, owner and manager, who also owns the Homestead Zoo Cuts location that opened in May 2009.
Zoo Cuts offers services such as haircuts and bang trims for infants, children, teens and parents. The salon also offers special occasion hair styling including up-dos, blowouts and flat and curling iron styles.
The family friendly amenities at Zoo Cuts promise to make that first haircut for an infant or toddler a positive experience for the child and parent alike. To remember the special occasion, Zoo Cuts will provide proud parents with a certificate, photo and lock of hair.
Toys, books, crayons and drawing pads, a chalkboard and Disney movies playing on the flat screen televisions will keep children entertained. Kids can even choose to watch their favorite TV program on the flat screens located at each themed station chair, which include a pink convertible, airplane, taxi, police car and fire truck.
While children are getting their haircut, Madrid encourages parents to do the same. The package price for dad and child haircuts is $28.95, and for mom and child haircuts, $32.95.
“We encourage the whole family to come in together,” Madrid said. “It’s hard for families to find the time to go to many different appointments. Our stylists are professionally trained to cut and style hair for children and adults.”
Marisol Borges is the lead stylist at Zoo Cuts in Palmetto Bay. She said that Justin Bieber’s hairstyle is currently the most popular haircut for boys. Clients can bring in a photo of the hairstyle they desire or browse through the salon’s hairstyle books and photos to find just the right one.
Zoo Cuts uses and sells a line of organic hair care products called Original Sprout. The products, which are made in the USA, clean and moisturize hair with safe and soothing ingredients.
Madrid said that Zoo Cuts soon will offer manicures and pedicures.
“While the children are getting haircuts or are entertained in the salon, mom can treat herself to a manicure or pedicure,” Madrid said.
Zoo Cuts also will be hosting lavish birthday party celebrations that include hair styling, manicures and pedicures as well as fun with karaoke, Wii and PlayStation.
Madrid, who divides his time between his two salon locations to ensure client satisfaction, said that walk-ins always are welcome at Zoo Cuts.
“Good customer service begins at the front door,” Madrid said. “We want everyone to have a great experience. I’m here to help with the front desk process so that the stylists can stay focused on the clients that are at their stations.”
