On Tuesday night we headed out for dinner at Silver Diner followed by Casper getting a haircut at Cartoon Cuts at Fair Oaks Mall. It was Kids Night at Silver Diner, which was a nice surprise. The crafts kept the boys busy while we waited for our food and they both left with balloon scorpions!
Next, we headed over to Cartoon Cuts. We were greeted by Munaza, one of their "Fan Favorite" stylists. She was so friendly and welcoming to Casper, which is a huge deal. We've had stylists in the past who don't really connect well with children, and those haircuts just didn't go well. Munaza clearly knew how to work with kids, though, and was full of ideas to keep him occupied while he got his haircut.
The salon is clean and full of bright colors. There was a giant poster on the wall with about 5 boy haircuts to choose from. I never know how to descrbe what I want for Casper's hair (or my own,a ctually, but that's another story lol) so I was really glad they had that. I almost went with the faux hawk, but since it is his birthday next week (4 year old pictures this weekend!) I went with something little more classic. I think they called it the "Popular." There are tvs at every station to keep the kids preoccupied while they get their haircut. they also have toys for the kids to play with in case they don't want to watch a show. Munaza gave Casper a rubber iguana to play with, and at one point, when he was getting a little tired of the haircutting, she asked him to count the spikes on his back, giving us enough time to finish the cut!
Cartoon Cuts gave me a coupon to give to all of my readers, you can get that at the bottom of this page if you are interested in checking it out. I highly recommended going in on a weekday of you can (they are open until 9 I think). We have gone on the weekends and it is a madhouse with a long wait.
