My kids LOVE going to Gumball Alley to get their hair cut! Every aspect of this salon was created with kids in mind- from the free video games and dress up room, videos at every station and, for the younger kids- little jeep and motorcycle seats at many of the chairs! They really provide exceptional service, convenient appointment times and they do the extras- like styling my daughter's hair in the cutest little ponies and pigtails, even when she is only getting a bang-trim. My son enjoys getting his hair shampooed like a grown-up and takes full advantage of the games, dress up and toys! They are also very customer service driven- we were unhappy with my son's cut on one occasion and FIVE days later they allowed us to come in for a free "repair" job (which turned out very nicely). They really aim to please their customers- keeping detailed notes on each client to reference on return visits!
