Tickles. Great Kids. Great Hair. Serving clients ages 2-14. Well, it’s just about open. Stopped by for a sneak peek the other day and spoke to the contractor. He was finishing up with final touches and looking for the final approval/inspections. They anticipated next week some time…so, COMING SOON. I think they will fit right in! Normally, we go to Wild Child on Proctor in North Tacoma, but we will certainly give this a try. Today’s kids’ haircuts are far different from their predecessors; my generation. The store is stylish and designed with kids in mind; bright colors, cool decor, a large flat screen TV and located right near the Uptown fountain for relaxing vibes and penny pitching fun.
Personally, I say break out the bowl and scissors. The FlowBee for that matter. That’s how we did it…well, sans bowl. A haircut at the barber was about $4-6 then. It was painful, filled with tears and jagged/harsh buzz clippers reverberated the room. You were lucky to escape unscathed without blood being spilled. As I recall, I dreaded it. First off, the barber was scary. Mad at the world. Later I learned several stylists crafted and honed their hair-cutting skills while serving time in prison! Comforting. Certainly, I am not advocating that, but I would be doing a disservice to my generation and the ones before if I hadn’t told that story.
Today’s kids are much happier and cooperative at the ‘barber’. In fact, my kids look forward to it! The stylist is kind and great with kids. There are toys to play with while your brother or sister takes his/her turn. And while you get your haircut, you don’t even realize it because your eyes are glued to the TV set … watching your chosen video from the extensive collection. Polish it off with a sucker. Yes, you pay for all the cool decor, TV’s, entertainment and dessert, but isn’t it worth it??? My wife says, “yes.”
Welcome to the community, Tickles. And as always, we look forward to a long, prosperous and lasting relationship with the Gig Harbor Community. Yet another reason to love Gig Harbor!
