Sharkey's Cuts for Kids - Franchise

No Experience Necessary

Take control of your future with a proven business and turn your dreams into reality with Sharkey's Cuts for Kids. 

Our Business Model
Our brilliant formula for success is all about the multiple sources of revenue that flow through our shops! Haircuts, birthday parties, toys, hair accessories, jewelry and lots more. We are the fastest-growing chain of children's hair salons in the United States, Europe, & Canada and we are seeking enthusiastic entrepreneurs to join our family. Passive ownership is available so you have flexibility and options that best fit your lifestyle.

At Sharkey's Cuts for Kids, we know that kids and parents want something different with their haircut experience. So we provide it all: a superior haircut with warm, experienced stylists in a meticulously clean salon filled with fun! Children can sit in a Dodge Police Cruiser, Barbie Jeep, Lightning McQueen Race Car, Buzz Light Year Vehicle, Hummer, #8 Dale Earnhardt NASCAR Race Car, and/or Mini Cooper while watching their favorite cartoons or Netflix!

Along with each haircut, girls receive a free mini-cure and boys receive a temporary tattoo. Our other revenue streams include unique retail merchandise located throughout the salon and birthday parties offered in our "Hollywood" style dressing room as well as other party rooms.

Older kids love the chance to play Playstation 3 or 4 or X-box 360 on 40" screens while getting their haircut, or they can just watch their favorite sporting events or music concerts through Satellite TV.

Kids Hair Salon Franchises are All Recession Proof

  • The overall hair care industry is a $55-billion per year industry with an estimated $5 billion for kids.   And growing.
  • Kids will always need haircuts.
  • Kids will always need shampoos and hair accessories and birthday parties.
  • Hair always grows.
  • Moms & Dads always spend on their kids no matter what the economy is doing.
  • Happy kids make happy parents.

Kids Hair Salon Franchises Offer the Most Longevity for a Franchise & Are The Easiest Franchise Models to Scale Up

  • There are very few, “if any”, franchise concepts out there that you can honestly say have no competition and do not have to worry about a concept or product replacing their business within 2-5 years.    We can say with Kids Hair Salon franchises, "they are here to stay".
  • Kids haircuts will never be replaced by any form of gadget or tool that a parent will purchase and cut their kids hair at home. Never!
