There’s a new (cool) place for kids haircuts in Baltimore — Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids!
Truth: they do cuts for mom and dad as well. But it’s really a salon designed to cater to the pint-sized crowd.
The new hair boutique for kids opened at the end of August in Lutherville. With convenient options like online booking, daily hours and cuts that start at just $16.95, it’s sure to be a fast favorite with local parents! (Don’t worry if you’re not in Lutherville; more locations are planned in the Baltimore area within the next year!). Their motto? Haircuts are fun. And should be stress-free for parents.
It’s a bright, welcoming space for kids complete with multicolor play structure, retro planes, Spiderman mobiles, and “Frozen” jeeps. While your child is getting a trim, they can watch their favorite show, “drive” their favorite car, or fight bad guys. Shampoo sessions are even fun for littles as they climb the “sink stairs.”
In addition to patient stylists (a must) they have an unending assortment of lollipops that can help quell “newbie” fears (or, let’s be honest, flat out bribe). The fun assortment of colorful chairs are great for littles and there are two more “grown-up” chairs for the big kids.
First haircut for baby? The team will memorialize it for you with a fun certificate, “after” photo, and lock of hair. In case you’re curious, the team DOES know how to work around Mom for those who are a little hesitant about the whole thing — and insist on burrowing. And yes, she refused to wear the cape.
In addition to styling services, Cookie Cutters carries a selection of hair care products for littles. Co-owner Eric Gustafsson says local parents are swearing by Original Sprout, a line of organic haircare products. 100% Vegan and Sulfate Free. Circle of Friends products have been popular, too — especially with kids since the packaging is so colorful!
While it may be a national brand, the Lutherville location is locally-owned and operated. They don’t just want to be a place where you come for a quick cut. They want to be an integral part of the community. Already, they’ve partnered with Healthy Kids Running Series and are planning a Community Board in the store.
The bottom line: our three pint-sized testers all left with (cool) fresh cuts, lollipops — and smiling!
