Haircuts for Kids in Greenville, SC

Pigtails and Crewcuts

This is a family favorite! Pigtails and Crewcuts has two locations in Greenville. Appointments are required (you can book online). Sometimes they have same-day, last-minute openings.

Greenville Pigtails and Crewcuts Location

2222 Augusta Street, Greenville | 864.990.0559

Five Forks Pigtails and Crewcuts Location

2815 Woodruff Road, Suite 105, Simpsonville | 864.626.9242

We just took our 1 yr old to Pigtails & Crewcuts for his first haircut, and everyone there was so sweet and good with him. I believe we had Kaylin (KK), and she was the best. She got to know him a little beforehand and talked to him the whole time, so he was comfortable and had a good experience. I would highly recommend it.

Patty

Pigtails and crew cuts for sure. We tried others first and until we started going to pigtails and crew cuts, it was always a bad cut! Now that we changed, Erin always does a great job. Plus she’s awesome with my sons sensory issues too.

Laura J

We’ve always had a good experience at both Pigtails and Crewcuts locations! They’re always very friendly and patient and take the time to give the kids a true hairstyle and not just trim their hair if that makes sense. One of my sons has very thick, fine, straight hair, and the other has some curls, and they have done a great job working with both to get them to fall nicely.

Snip It’s. They’ve done a great job making the kids feel at ease, recommending hair styles, and being quick. They are set up for social distancing and I felt very comfortable there.

Angela S

My little one is on the spectrum and Amber at Snip-its is the only one he allows to touch his hair. She is so gentle and patient, has weathered many melt downs with such grace, and she earned his trust. So grateful for her. She truly cares about kids and gives great cuts.

Some Tips Before You Get That Hair Cut…

If the thought of planning your first trip with your baby still gives you split ends, check out some of these tips:

  • Try calling it a “trim” instead of “cut” so children aren’t afraid.
  • Consider the environment and your child’s ability to cope with new places. Bright and fun may be too over-stimulating. Too quiet and calm may not be distracting enough. Some hair salons for kids, like Snip-Its, have TVs at every station.  Is that a good thing for your child?
  • Prepare your child for the big event by talking about it a few days in advance.
  • Depending on your child, make it something super special and exciting, or down play it and talk about it as just another fact of life.
  • Go early for the appointment or stop by the actual place instead of calling to schedule. Your child can get a sense for what’s going on and have a chance to process it a little before getting up in the chair.
  • Take an extra shirt. If your kiddo refuses the cape, you’ll want something for them to change into that isn’t covered in cute little itchy baby hairs!

Where do you take your kiddos for a haircut?

Anyone know the cost of the first haircut package at pigtails and crew cuts?

I would check on that penny haircut at jellybeans. I don’t think they do that anymore. A friend told me she tried last week and no.

Jelly Beans did change their pricing this year. They offer haircuts starting at $15.95 with a first haircut package at $12.95.
