Hairdresser for 10 year old girl recommendations please

Postby moirasings on Thu Jan 17, 2013 10:31 am

My daughter wants to get a fancy short haircut that is beyond my hairdressing skill. Where is a good (cheap!) place to take her in downtown Victoria? She is 10 years old.

Try the Aveda Institute? They offer inexpensive student cuts:

Honestly if she is going short, cheap isn't necessarily better! I'd go for quality. Most good salons give discounted rates for kids. I'd phone around and see what the prices are like.

ETA: my DD got a very short pixie cut at Bella moda at hillside mall and the girl did a fabulous job. A stylist by the name of Aaron used work there (not sure if he is still there) and he is fabulous.

It's not necessarily what salon you go to but WHO you go to! A friend of mine is a hairdresser but she's in Sidney. She does THE BEST inverted bob. Her name is Hollie and she's at Going Platinum

If your girl has super straight hair like me and my daughter I would make sure to asked if the hairdresser has experience cutting straight hair as it will show ever single cut.

We went to Lizzie Lee & Me in the end. $20 and they did a great job plus it was a wonderful experience for her. She could choose a video to watch while her hair was being cut but the icing on the cake was sparkly hair spray at the end!
