Pigtails & Crewcuts is a recognized brand within the vibrant $55 billion hair-care industry.  Parents everywhere trust Pigtails & Crewcuts when it comes to their children’s salon experience.  But it’s also a trusted brand when it comes to top franchise opportunities.

Here is Why:

  • Our experience.  Owners Bucky Cook and Wade Brannon are pioneers in the franchise business.  In 1984, they took a small retail store in South Carolina and grew it into a nationally recognized brand with more than 230 franchise locations.  A competitor purchased the business in 2002.
  • Our growth potential. Child-centric hair salons are a relatively new concept with unlimited growth opportunities.  Many Pigtails & Crewcuts owners have expanded with ease from one salon to multiple locations.  Our business model lends itself to multi-unit development because of the ease of operation, relatively low cost of entry and potential high return on investment.
  • Our reputation. Since 2007, Entrepreneur magazine has included Pigtails & Crewcuts in its 'Franchise 500' list, and has named Pigtails & Crewcuts one of the 'Top 10 Chains for Kid Birthday Parties.'
  • Our services. We want kids and parents to enjoy themselves and we’ve found a proven way of doing just that.  Our brightly colored salons, friendly franchise owners, salon staff and satisfied customers are the best proof we can offer.  Plus, we’re here to support you, every step of the way.

Pigtails & Crewcuts offers an excellent franchise opportunity to nearly everyone, whether you’re a mom returning to the workforce or an entrepreneur investing in multiple salon locations.  Whatever your background is, we’d love to share more information with you about this children’s hair salon franchise.

Owners of Pigtails & Crewcuts salons enjoy the following benefits that come with this top franchise:

  • A turnkey business package. Pigtails & Crewcuts salon owners walk into a proven franchise model that sets you up for success.  Our corporate office helps you obtain the latest equipment at the best prices, provides inventory guidance and leads you through the necessary steps to opening your salon.
  • Comprehensive training. Education and training are keys to franchise success.  While this may be your first salon, we’ve opened more than 30 and are excited to share our proven business model with you.
  • A trusted brand. Since opening, we have invested heavily in building a recognizable and respected brand identity.
  • Ongoing support. We’re always proud to welcome new members to our tight-knit community.  Whether it’s your first day or you’re years into the business, our staff remains just a phone call away.

In addition to providing hair services, our franchises throw birthday parties and carry a large selection of unique gifts along with a custom line of children’s hair care products, creating additional revenue streams for the business and additional fun services for its customers.


In 2010, my wife and I were frustrated. We’d been taking our young twin boys to different salons in the Westminster, Colorado area, and found that the adult-centric businesses were a poor fit for our family. One salon actually told us it would be best if we didn’t come back, because both of our boys were crying during their haircuts (they’re 4, it happens!). In addition, one of our children has special needs, and the salons we were visiting, unfortunately, didn’t know how to respond to those. We’d both grown up in the area, and knew that we were not alone in our frustration. We saw the opportunity to open a kids’ salon franchise that welcomed everyone with open arms—laughing or crying, special needs or not. And that’s just what we’ve done. With the guidance of the Pigtails & Crewcuts team, we work hard to give our customers the salon services we, as parents, always hoped to find. We offer “quiet” appointments to kids with special needs, and really work hard to give all children—and their parents—a memorable, stress-free experience. The response has been amazing. I recently left my career in the medical device business to focus solely on the salon. Rachel enjoys making some of the headbands and bows that we sell, and she handles ordering all of the merchandise, most of which comes from local moms. With flexible schedules, we’re both able to devote the time needed to our sons. It’s truly a family business. Brett and Rachel Miller , Westminster, Colorado
I own two Pigtails & Crewcuts salons in Georgia (one is in Roswell and the other is in West Cobb) along with my husband, Scott. I opened the first kids’ salon franchise because I was frustrated with my own experiences, as a parent, with kids’ haircuts. Driving my two children all over town, I watched them sit (and sometimes cry) through too many mediocre or even bad cuts at salons aimed at adults. I wanted a place that really catered to all children, a place where kids can laugh their heads off or have a melt down and not be met with judgment. I used to be a social worker, so I know the importance of a supportive, fun and friendly environment for everyone. Seeing that need in my town, I took matters into my own hands and opened my first Pigtails & Crewcuts. The first experience was so positive that in 2010, I opened a second location. I really enjoy being a business owner. It allows me a flexible schedule, so I can be there for my family. And I love my customers. I consider them a part of my extended Pigtails & Crewcuts family. Through them, I get to be a part of so many firsts—first haircut, first day at school, first lost tooth, first trip to Disney World and the list goes on. As a franchise owner, I receive the support and guidance of the corporate office, but I also get to tailor the salon to fit within my own community. I sell the kinds of organic products that I use on my own children, and I buy bows and hair accessories from local moms. Being a business owner also allows me a chance to give back. I regularly spearhead back-to-school drives and food drives. And last year, alone, we carried out 200 haircuts for Locks of Love, with the kids donating their hair to sick children in need. At Pigtails & Crewcuts, I’m doing my part to make this town, and this world, a better place, one child at a time. Nancy and Scott Anderson , Roswell & West Cobb, Georgia
