Get Your Cut On

There are so many parties to attend during the new year, which means just as many pictures will be snapped. One needs to look sharp. Let’s start from the top, a killer haircut is must. Depending on what look you are aiming for, there’s something for everyone.


Curly & Spike

Touted as “the hippest kids styling salon in town”, Curly & Spike can hardly be overlooked as a potential candidate. Plop down on one of their unique styling stations and either opt for playing games on x-box or watch a movie. Either way, get ready to be groomed like it’s your birthday. The salon’s Super Stylists are on site to help you bring out your inner fashion diva or cool dude persona.


EC House

If “no muss no fuss” is your mantra, EC House is your best bet. You go in, you wait for a couple of minutes, you tell them what you want or you ask them what would look good. Get your hair washed and dried. Sit for a few more minutes while they follow your simple instructions. A little snip here. A little buzz there and voila. If this doesn’t win you over, the fact that EC House has 32 salons across the island will definitely do the job. Oh and did we forget to mention it’s $10 a haircut?


Poika & Tytar

The name sounds like it belongs on a banner announcing the arrival of an old school circus coming to town. The salon’s décor plays along with that picture what with its vintage car and airplane shaped barber chairs. Little ones will have a ball pretending to take off while their tresses are being cut and styled. We haven’t forgotten the parents. While waiting for the ta da factor, they can get their caffeine fix in one of Pasarbella’s many coffee spots.


Huaxia TaoMobi Centre

Let’s go back to the roots, Chinese roots that is. Traditionally speaking, Chinese believe that a newborn’s head should be shaved completely so that no germs can invade. The experts at Huaxia undertake this noble deed with sterilised shavers. Furthermore, your baby’s first locks can be turned into the bristles of a beautiful ornamental calligraphy brush. If you weren’t already convinced, you can have this arranged to take place in the comfort of your own home.


Little Red Dot

The name alone brings out the patriot in you. Located conveniently in Forum Mall, this salon is a haven for those who in addition to getting their kid that much needed cut have to drop their child at Julia Gabriel, pick up groceries from Supernature and shop for the next birthday present in Toys R Us all in one go. Stylists at Little Red Dot are oh too familiar with squirmy kids, screaming babies and apprehensive teenagers, all hesitant to don a new look. Parents will be pleased with not only the patience that is doled out but the expertise with which hair is cut, styled, curled and if necessary gelled.
