@nicola1476 – I can recommend Little Barnets in Woodhouse Road, Friern Barnet. They have fab car chairs for the kids to sit in and the staff are really professional and lovely.

@littlelakeoffire – Family Kuts in Beckenham is geared toward kids with cars to sit in, screens to keep them distracted and (normally) toys to play with while waiting.

@hollybulley – We love Capelli Belli on Pitshanger Lane in Ealing, they have cars to sit in and DVD players to keep kids entertained. Lovely staff too!

@emsmurf10 – Just been to Sampson’s barbers on Holloway Road in Highbury – great, friendly local service and a great cut to boot. They reckon they’ve cut most of North London’s kids’ hair this week!

@originaldiddidancer – I recommend ShortCuts childrens’ salon, they’ve got cars to sit in, screens to watch and super patient kid friendly stylists.

@alexandramadre – We always take mine to Lizz’s Children’s Hairdresser down Camden Passage. Just a one-band show but she’s incredible with the kids and her toy collection is brilliant. (phone: 07792 804037)
@peachy1585 – Lizz is my go-to, she offers affordable cuts and free fringe trims.
