Is MelonHeads worth it???

I have taken my two year old for many haircuts--he has thick beautiful hair that grows super fast (If I had a girl I am sure that she would have thin stringy hair that wouldn't grow). I have taken my son to CUTE KIDS CUTS on Eglinton in Toronto (mixed reviews--I have had good and bad cuts and experiences) and I have taken him to First Choice (after someone had told me that going to the kids places isn't worth it, but the haircut was terrible and completely uneven) and then today we went to Melonheads at the Promenade Mall.

I have to say, it was totally worth it. Yes, you pay a little more, but I had 2 people working with my son. One person blew bubbles and sang songs to him while the other person cut his hair. My son is not the ideal client since he screams his head off but tries to wiggle away...but this was a really good experience for us.

Overall, I would say if I were to rate the different places I would say:
1) MELONHEADS (great atmosphere and the people I had today really GOT kids and were so patient and great)
2) CUTE KIDS CUTS (good atmosphere but not as much "fun" as they don't have someone to distract the kids)
3) FIRST CHOICE (had to wait...even though we had an appointment so that was bad and then the cut was terrible--completely uneven).

I think with haircuts it all depends on the hairdresser but I would say that it's worth the extra bit of money for a good cut and a positive experience if your kid is a little fussy when it comes to people touching their hair or if your kid is a little spirited.


  1. We go to the Melonheads at Yonge and Lawrence. There is not a special person there for distracting the kids and I have never seen bubbles! However, there is a wonderful women there named Angela who we have gone to for the last 2 cuts and she is amazing! My daughter no longer cries during the haircut and Angela gives her a fantastic cut- even with all the wiggling and moving around that toddlers do. I have found that the key for us is to have found a good hairdresser and to keep going back to her. That way I can talk about it to my daughter for a couple of days before we go and remind her about how nice Angela is. The special car that the child gets to sit in, having treehouse on the tvs, and getting to ride the ponies before you leave does not hurt either!

  2. Great idea to prep the kids first!!!

  3. I like Melonheads on Yonge, too, and I agree with Mommyof1 that you have to get the right stylist. Maybe Angela is the one who gave Leah the great cut...the last cut was definitely not as good, so I have to find the person who did the original and keep going back to her. She did a better job on Evan, too. Maybe you need to bring Charles to Yonge Street, Roe!

  4. I should. I will try it next time, we all know how much hair he has!

  5. Hi all,

    I have taken my one year old daughter to Melond Head in Promenade Mall(Thornhill)last sunday. Unfortunately I was shocked
    and very disappointed by the customer service. I took my daughter
    there for her first hair cut on the advice of a family friend. Being a
    mother, it was very important to have my daughter’s first hair cut an
    exceptional moment, memorable for us. My friend had told me that melon
    head provides a certificate for the first time cut and some of the
    hair of the baby along with some discount for the first time visitor.
    None of the above happened. The worst thing of all these was the way
    the receptionist behaved. She was rude and not friendly.
    She was serving us while eating potato chips, talking on the phone and
    shaking hand to get credit card for charge. She did not even ask if it
    was our first visit. Did not have an eye contact and did not talk in a
    nice way.

    We will definitely not return to any melon head salon and will not
    recommend this to anyone.
