Do You Need A Kid Friendly Salon?
Okay, first up- no, you don’t necessarily need a kid-friendly salon. But you do need a kid-friendly stylist, and you’re more likely to find one at some of the places on this list.
Risking a haircut on a random stylist at Supercuts can be just fine for all involved, but it can also be a disaster. You’re just rolling the dice.
If you have a stylist you know and love, you can ask them if they cut kids’ hair too. That takes the unknown out of the equation without requiring that you go to a kids’ salon specifically.
Best Place to Get a First Haircut
For your kiddos’ very first haircut, we recommend going a little fancier.
All of these locations have super fun kid salon vibes– think little cars to sit in, TVs to watch, and treats after- but they also specialize in first haircuts.
First haircut packages at these locations all include a certificate and preserving a lock of hair.
Here are the local options that we know of that give special, super fun first haircuts:

Even if it’s not your child’s first haircut, your kids are going to love these kids-only hair salons near Long Beach. They are dedicated to kids and making the haircutting experience a fun one.
The stylists at these locations are pros at working with kids, even the tricky ones.

Little Boy Haircuts in Long Beach
Now, there are a couple of downsides to those kids-only salons we mentioned. First up, they all tend to be sort of far, with none in Long Beach proper.
Secondly, these salons come with a hefty price tag for their super-fun services. And with boys, you’re going to be visiting again and again, so it’s got to be worth your money.
Sometimes you just need a basic cut, with a stylist that is good with kids. Here are the hair salons my friends and I have used with our kids, with good success:
- Parkcrest Barber Shop near the Towne Center- the cheapest boys’ cuts around!
- Ohana Barber Shop near Simone’s Donuts. Ask for Nancy or Michael.
