Best of Seattle for Kids and Families: Family Shopping and Services
When it comes to where to spend your family’s hard-earned dollars, boy, you certainly put your mouth where your money is. The competition was fierce in the family shopping category, and we heard you loud and clear with your votes for shops, boutiques and services that focus on quality, customer service and great value.


Best of Seattle: The Salon at Kid's ClubKids' Haircuts

Winner: The Salon at Kid's Club
The Salon at Kid’s Club in University Village boasts a jungle mural on the walls and brightly colored taxi cabs and fire trucks for your little ones to sit in. The kids can finish up their cut with braids, colored gel, sparkles or a faux hawk. It’s a popular place for baby’s first haircut; you go home with a lock of hair tucked inside a cute keepsake card. The kids might love the salon’s colorful walls and friendly atmosphere, but you appreciate a staff that “works really well with children” and gives “absolutely the best kid’s haircut.”

Wallingford Center salon L’il Klippers has been in business since 1988, and its sweet animal-shaped wooden chairs and “best patient stylists” keep parents coming back. The salon encourages parents to step out to get a cupcake at nearby Trophy (or do anything else off-premises), so the stylists can work their magic on calm kids.

While kids wait for their turn to sit on the chainsaw-carved sea animals, Phinney Ridge’s Beach Comber Kids' Cuts keeps wiggly kids busy in a large playroom in the back. Then, when it’s time to get their cuts, they can chill out and watch DVDs while the friendly and gentle stylists work their magic. You tell us they “have a way with the kiddos,” and we think you’re right.

Sugarcomb Salon, also located in Phinney, is a full-service salon that caters to kids with a play salon area and friendly owner Sean Bates, who many of you mentioned by name. “My kid LOVES him,” you say, also calling him “amazing and talented.”

You also mentioned Bella and Max at Country Village Bothell (“Cutest shop, great stylists!”) and Bellevue Square salon Dooz (“Kids’ stylists that know how to cut hair. Cheerful and fun!”).
