Fresh New Cut by The Little Blue Jay in Atlanta
This past week, Sofia started her first day of Pre-K 2 and I decided to take her in for a much needed trim. My moms group had recommended a cute new salon for kids called The Little Blue Jay that had just opened about 10 mins from my house.
I contacted the owner Lauren, an amazing mom of three, who just recently opened the shop and she invited Sofia and I in to try it out. The process was actually pretty simple, you can visit their website or IG and book your appointment online. Then, you receive an automated confirmation and reminder prior to your appointment date. Kids cuts are $19.99, a kids style is $14.99 and a bang trim is $6.99.
When we arrived, we were greeted by our stylist Ms. Kaley. She was very welcoming and happy to see us and let Sofia choose which chair she wanted to sit in. They offer a variety of options for kids, from an airplane to a car and more!
Best of all each stylist has fun toys and kid friendly shows available to make the process easier, as they cut or trim your little ones hair. I know that the haircut process can be difficult with young ones, so it was nice to see that they had a variety of options to keep them busy. Sofia did great and Ms. Kaley's work was exactly what I wanted for her first day of school.
After Sofia was done, she was given a choice of a candy from the various candy jars at the shop and then, had a chance to play in their kid's space. The room was filled with toys, a small kitchen, dolls, a teepee and chalkboard wall.
This gave me some time to pay without the stress of a little one running around and I even got to shop their store. They have a pop up store within the salon that features story books, children's clothing, plush toys and accessories. Currently they have a sale going on where all summer clothing is 30% off (Fun Tip: the store features great gifts for boys and girls). Check out their store below !
The experience was exactly what I wanted and we look forward to coming back again. Also for any parents that may be wondering, they do offer adult haircuts for $21.99, and adult blowouts for $31.99. Make sure to check them out when you are in town or driving near by! You can follow them on Instagram @thelittlebluejayatl for fun videos, pics and offers.
