Many thanks to Julie at Salon 36 Kids for the Bug’s fabulous new ‘do.’ Not only was Julie incredibly patient with the Bug (who was visibly nervous when we first arrived and wouldn’t let go of my leg), she did a GREAT job. The Bug was even able to pick out her own DVD to watch during the haircut {{surprise! It was The Best of Elmo}}. By the time we got to the ‘blow out,’ the Bug had relinquished her grip on my hand and relaxed. The Pikesville area kid-catering salon is worth a drive for the friendly service, endless patience and fabulous cut. Cuts start at $22.

Need a kid friendly stylist? (cool) progeny reader Melissa Yuknar suggested Drew’s Barber Shop on Harford Road, and reader Heather Sands suggested Floyd’s 99 Barbershop on Boston Street.

Where do you take your kids?
