If you are concerned about hygiene and want to make sure your child looks great, like for a special occaision, go somewhere else! If you are in a pinch, go and stand over your child to guide some of the stylist. I learned to ask for a scissor only cut, no buzz please! I try to make appointments at regular full service salons for my boys 1 and 3 when possible. It is a difficult profession and I appreciate the really good stylist and show them with a large tip.
