Beaners Fun Cuts For Kids is a Canadian owned specialty hair salon for children. Kids sit on coin-operated rides, such as a hippo, horse, or duck, or they can sit in a jeep or motorcycle. There are televisions at each station, so kids can watch a show while having their hair done, which can alleviate any stress the child may have and make the process go quickly. Our favourite part is the huge ball pit! Who doesn’t like a little sensory play after getting their hair cut?!
