Cookie Cutters

About Cookie Cutters

Cookie Cutters have been operating children’s hair salons since 1994 with franchised outlets since 1996. This experience is designed to help our franchisees operate children’s salons without prior experience in the hair industry.

We train our operators completely using our confidential operations guide that was developed through the years using input from all our network of operators and employees. Your entire staff will be trained before opening to ensure quality in operations and customer service.

Experiencing a Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids hair cut is an interactive experience. Our stylists are trained to guide the child and their family through the experience whether it is a first haircut, or an experienced styling. Our unique store design with an in-store playground and games sets us apart from other hair salons.
