Wondering where to get haircuts for kids? Trauma-free trims and chaos-free cuts, we've scoured the capital for the best kid-friendly hair salons!
Whether you have fussy toddlers dreading their first hair cut or excited little daughters looking forward to get their first mani, we’ve sussed out the top salons for kids (no wonder we’re all about the pampered life in the Big Durian, it starts young!)
You’ll find these bright shops in most high-end malls in Jakarta. The mini motorcycles, jeeps, and fast cars are sure to impress the little ones. Top it off with personal entertainment systems (we kid you not!) and you’re on your way to a fuss-free cut. The stylists are extremely patient and trained to handle children with special needs. Kiddy Cuts is very popular so it’s best to make an appointment. A haircut will set you back around IDR 100,000 and includes a toy for the kids. Services include creambaths, nails, bali braids, make up, colouring, and highlights.
