Our mission is to create a fun and memorable haircutting experience for children and their families. With brightly colored walls and our signature theme car chairs, Pigtails & Crewcuts provides an environment where kids can be kids.

The hair industry is a $65 billion industry, and the children's segment is over $7 billion; therefore, this recession-resistant industry will continue to grow.

Pigtails & Crewcuts is the premier provider of children's haircuts across the country by providing an exceptional experience in our salons, and through our support of our franchisees. What sets us apart is our strong Item 19, dependable and ongoing franchise support, and excellent franchisee validation.

Candidate Profile:
This franchise opportunity lends itself to a number of ownership opportunities. Our franchisees come from all walks of life and have different goals and objectives that vary from day-to-day operations to higher level ownership. However, none of our franchisees are hairstylists. Some owners are the salon each day managing the daily operations, but most are semi-absentee who either work fulltime or own multiple salons and other businesses. Our semi-absentee model is a great opportunity for clients who are interested in business ownership but might not be ready to leave their fulltime jobs. We have both single and multi-unit franchise opportunities available. Contact franchise@pigtailsandcrewcuts.com for more information!
