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.

while. Cuts start at $19.

him. Cuts start at $24.

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.
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
