January 3, 2011 3:18 AM

You put it off as long as you can, but finally one morning you just can’t ignore the fact that it’s time to tame those unruly locks. The ideal place to get your child’s hair cut is at a salon with a stylist who is good, quick, and understands that children don’t generally like to sit perfectly still for long periods of time. There are many places in the Bay Area where you can get your child’s hair trimmed or even chopped. A few exceptional ones deserve special mention.

Chocolate Mousse

540 N Santa Cruz Ave.
Los Gatos, CA 95030

Chocolate Mousse

May and Kerri operate a small, sedate kids’ salon near down-town Los Gatos, where children are sure to get a great haircut in a non-threatening or overwhelming environment. Children who are waiting can play in a closed off area packed with toys and books, while children who are getting their hair cut enjoy a little TV time. Both stylists are skilled at working with kids and deliver great cuts. Because it’s a low-key environment and the stylists are so competent, this is a great place for children with special needs or kids who are a bit nervous about getting a trim.

While this isn’t a dedicated child salon, Vpaul’a stylist Tex gets rave reviews from local moms for being extremely patient and great with kids. They have a television that they’re happy to turn to a children’s station and they offer candy as a reward after the cut. For $12 a cut you can’t go wrong with this place!
