It recently came to my attention that the little one was looking like a right scruffbag. As I’m currently on a crazed mission to sort out as much stuff as possible before the new baby arrives, I mentally added ‘haircut’ to the list.
Since my headstrong daughter won’t even let me brush her hair without collapsing into full-blown, screaming hysteria, I wasn’t about to go near her with a pair of sharp scissors.
I’d taken her to a ‘regular’ hairdressing salon about six months earlier and she’d come out with a diagonal fringe. Very Vidal Sassoon, but not exactly what I wanted for my toddler.
It was time to call in the professionals. So I put in call to the team at Tantrum children’s hairdressing salon, on King’s Rd, Chelsea. Big Sis and I had been there for her very first haircut, a year earlier and I was really impressed with how great they were with her.
As luck would have it, they’d just had a revamp, so we were invited back to try out the snazzy new salon! When we arrived I was pleased to see they still had the seats shaped like model cars, and planes and jeeps, imported especially from the US.
Big Sis took her place in a bright red fire truck. She’s not the best at sitting still, so I worried that she’d squirm about, and end up losing an ear. But she was so transfixed by the salon, it’s bright new underwater mural, and her personal DVD player, that she sat perfectly still while stylist Christy got to work.
I took the chance to have a quick snoop around the revamped salon. Younger kids are catered for upstairs, while older kids and teens have the run of the lower floor, which is set up like a glamorous Hollywood salon.
After transforming Big Sis’s straggly ends into a sleek bob, Christy gave her a quick blowdry, and finished it off with some of the lovely SLS-free products from the Tantrum children’s haircare range.
We left the salon perfectly coiffured, and looking forward to our next Tantrum visit. Visit the Tantrum website for contact details and prices.
