Kids' Hairstylists continued

Lappin Paoli
123 W. Broadway, near Duane St.
For eighteen years, this hip Tribeca salon has been styling fashionable downtown adults. But recently, youngsters have taken a liking to the kid-friendly staff and the child-size barber chair. The lollipops might have something to do with it, too. Cuts for kids start at $30.

Le Cachet Spa de Beaute
39 E. 30th St.
A youngster’s haircut using organic products rings in at around $30 at this holistic spa. That’s chump change for a chance for mommy to sneak in a quick sea-spa scrub pedicure ($43). A mini-facial, too, takes just half an hour.

Lulu’s Cuts and Toys
310 Fifth Ave., near 2nd St., Park Slope, Brooklyn
With plenty of distractions (fun barbershop chairs, videos, and lots of toys) this Park Slope kiddie salon creates an environment where kids are happy to sit still—for a while. Cuts start at $19.

Paul Molé Barbershop
1031 Lexington Ave., at 74th St.
This old-fashioned barbershop welcomes kids with videos and friendly barbers. The pint-size clientele feel comfortable getting styled in smaller barber chairs while Dad sits nearby, getting one of the city’s best shaves. Kids’ cuts start at $27.

Someplace Special—Haircuts and Toys for Kids
492 W. 238th St., the Bronx
Kids call the shots here: Each red jeep chair has its own TV with videos. Rewards include kosher lollipops, balloons, and certificates honoring a first haircut. If your little boy hates to sit still in the chair, he can busy himself with toys at the play table while a patient stylist works around him. Cuts start at $24.

Call 800-SUPERCUT for store locations.
Kids’ cuts start at just $14 in Manhattan and $10 in Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island at these quick-and-easy salons, where walk-ins are more than welcome. Supercuts stylists do everything from simple trims to fancy up-dos on kids of any age—as long as they can sit still.

Vartali Salon
48 E. 57th St., second fl. 212-935-4640 If your ’tween suddenly cares about lipstick and blowouts, book a special mother-daughter day at this sunlit salon for cuts, color, manicures ($20), and a first makeup lesson ($150). Special occasion up-dos ($75 and up) are perfect for piano recitals or that first dance. Cuts for children under 12 start at $50.

Whipper Snippers
106 Reade St.
Anita Leong, owner of Tribeca’s newest kiddie salon, hit upon a clever ruse to get little ones in the door: Set the salon in a toy store. Kids sit in chairs shaped like jeeps and play video games or watch movies while getting trimmed. Mommies and daddies can get cut and styled, too. Kids’ cuts are $25; adults’, $35. Glamour parties are available for groups.
