Patience of saints.
My 2 year old son and I had a great experience here. The hairdresser (Cindy) never got irritated by my son in any way, which helped ME relax. Also, even though we got there close to closing time, she took a lot of time with him and he looked awesome at the end of it. It was $20.
Besides all the toys and the nice decorations, they also have a small TV that plays videos right next to one of the chairs. Our son was mesmerized with the Thomas videos.
