Getting your kid’s hair cut can be a serious undertaking. Generally speaking, kids aren’t usually interested in the orchestration necessary to pull off a good haircut. It can all be a bit much — having their hair washed in public, sitting still near sharp tools, exchanging pleasantries with a stranger. Li’l Klippers, opened in 1988, is committed to making the whole process less of an ordeal; there is a comfortable lay-down station for kids to get their hair washed and fun animal- and vehicle-shaped seats. Of course, toys are theirs for the playing while the stylist gets down to business.

Li’l Klippers hopes that their stylists won’t be strangers to your kids for long. “I gave some kids their first haircut, and now they’re coming in graduating from college,” said owner and stylist Becky Bjorback. Located in the Wallingford Center, Li’l Klippers shares a space with The Edge, a salon for teens, tweens and adults. Li’l Klippers’ senior stylists are trained to work with kids with special needs and all stylists are trained to provide consistency, so that kids can trust the process without surprises.
