- What area's do you visit?
G&S likes to be as flexible as possible. We are based on the North Side of Brisbane & there is only so much we can cover unfortunately. We travel as far south as Mount Gravatt, West as far as Indooroopilly, East as far as Murrarie and North around North Lakes. Please understand there is only one of us & a lot of ground to cover! We will do our best to attend to your littlies haircut asap. If there are bookings already made for your area we will try to schedule you in on the same day to avoid backtracking. A travel cost may apply to your area, please check upon booking.
- My child REALLY doesn't like haircuts....
This is a lot more common than you probably know! And this is why we do it in the comfort of your child's home. The biggest help is understanding that when a child goes near a pair of scissors, the first reaction from a parent is "NO", "don't touch", "they will cut you", "hurt you", "ouchy" and so on...... BUT What happens when you take them into a hairdressing salon?? They are placed in front of a mirror, told to sit still while a stranger (in most cases) waves a pair of sharp scissors around their face, ears and head. It is ok for your little one to be scared, upset or angry about haircuts. It wont last forever and when they get past that "fear", it 99.99% wont return! The most important thing is that you educate them why we need and get haircuts, and that no matter how much they may not like it, its something that just has to be done!
- Do I need cash
No, We carry a mobile eftpos machine.
I carry an eftpos machine for your convenience and don't carry any change so if you wish to pay by cash, please have the correct amount.
- What if my child is sick the day of their appointment?
Such is life! We understand, these things happen.
If children or parents are ill, be it with the flu (bad cold), vomiting, conjunctivitis, school sores, chicken pox, measles etc parents are asked to notify Giggles & Scissors 24-12hrs (if possible, I know some of these things can come on last minute) before their appointment. It will be at Giggles & Scissors discretion as to whether to keep the appointment or reschedule. I don't charge a late cancelation fee however if Giggles & Scissors is not informed of an illness prior to the appointment we will have the right to leave before service are carried out and charge the full payment.
- What is the minimum age do your cut hair?
Any age is fine! If they need a haircut, then their old enough!
- Can I have my haircut while your here to do my child's?
Absolutely! Giggles & Scissors has a "word of mouth" home salon in north Brisbane. Pam has been hairdressing for 18 years and has 70% adult clients. We understand how hard it can be getting out of the house for "you" time. Chat to Pam about it when you make your child's appointment.
