We went to Castle Kids Cuts with our 4 year old autistic son. It was his first haircut and the Autism Society of Oregon suggested this salon as being the best one for children with that particular disability to go to. They were not wrong! There are toys there for every age. I don't mean a basket of blocks--there was a playhouse, a full-sized train set on a train table, a Gamecube with a Mario game in it, books, Barbie dolls, and movies. It is open and airy and bright. I did not find it dark, and I also found the toys to be clean and well-kept. There is a diaper changing station there as well. The seats are toy cars and planes, but they also have a less daunting chair for children who find that to be too much. They also do adult cuts, so they have a regular chair there too. I really liked how the place did not smell like a salon: in fact, it smelled like NOTHING AT ALL which is great for children with sensory processing disorder. At each station there is a television to watch (your child gets to pick 'their' movie), some toys to play with, and BUBBLES! The stylists do not ask your child to sit still and do not mind kicking and screaming. They knows tricks to help get the job done with the least amount of fuss. My child actually felt so at ease there that he had a very pleasant experience. We'll be making it a habit to go there a few times a year for our son's haircuts. It is a ways away from us, but definitely worth it.
