Sharkeys Cuts for Kids’ co-owner Emily Tornblom stated, “That’s what we are trying to create here at Sharkeys. A fun atmosphere, a great experience for kids to come to and want to get their hair cut, and for parents to enjoy bringing them their kids.
The black and white-checkered floors are the first to be lit up when you enter the business. Each decorated station has neon green, pink, and purple walls that match the neon green, yellow, and purple walls.
Character cars are the salon chairs. The fighter jet is joined by a firetruck and police car. You can play on Xboxs or PlayStations while you wait, and flat screen TVs that allow you to access ESPN, Disney+, and Hulu. Extra treats are available at the salon, including Dippin Dots.
Chases mom Adriana Jarvis was thrilled to visit a new hair salon and follow his stylist to her new location.
The different characters cars were a great distraction for him, better than TVs like in other places. She said that he loves the haircut and I won’t be able get him out of it.
The full-service salon caters to teens and their parents, cutting hair at all ages. You can also find a manicure and pedicure area, and a large vanity space to add unique hairstyles.
Tornblom explained that the business donates a portion of every service fee paid to a local non-profit organization. Basket of Foods for Kids, HUGS Ranch, Artists Create Together. She stated that they would be reviewing quarterly earnings to determine if these donations are eligible.
Tornblom stated that we have enjoyed tremendous success in the last few days since our business began. We have a great staff with many years of combined experience. Two stylists specialize in providing care for children with special needs.
If you have a child who needs extra attention to their haircuts, or a child who is struggling with their hair, we have the options.
Tornblom and Jeff, her husband, wanted to be more involved in their community, neighbors, and co-owners Tara Starback and Mitch Starback.
After many happy hours and social picnics, they began to work with their neighbors to create a business opportunity.
My husband and me had just taken our 2-year-old boy to get his first haircut. Tornblom explained that the nearest place was in town, on either the northeast or the southeast sides of town. We thought it would be a great idea to bring something similar to our community, so that other families can have fun with their kids’ haircuts.
Tornblom discovered opportunities and was inspired by Sharkeys Cuts For Kids. Franchisees that are rapidly growingWhen it comes to giving back the local community.
Tornblom stated that for the three organizations we partner with, there are three boxes on our reception desk where parents and children can get tokens. They choose the non-profit organization to which they want their token to be given. The token is a monetary token that we will distribute quarterly to these non profits.
For a more memorable experience, parents can enjoy a day with their children by purchasing packages for mom, dad, and son.
Tornblom explained that we also hold birthday parties. This would be a great option for both girls and boys to get glamorous and dressed up.
