The smallest clients can sit in brightly colored chairs shaped like airplanes, fire engines and police cars, while older siblings, up to age 12, lounge in traditional salon chairs. Entertainment is always close at hand, and kids can play with our wooden train table and toys, read books, indulge in video games and watch movies as smiling stylists trim their hair. Kids love Pigtails & Crewcuts because it’s a world made just for them, and parents love the salon because they know their kids are in good hands. In addition to hair styling services, each Pigtails & Crewcuts has its own party room, available for themed birthday celebrations, as well as a retail section.
Wade Brannon’s own children were so in love with the kid-centric salon concept that the dedicated dad opened Pigtails & Crewcuts in Atlanta, Georgia in 2004. In just over 10 years, as owner and operator, he has grown the business to more than 50 franchise locations across the country, providing outstanding service to kids and their parents. Prior to opening Pigtails & Crewcuts, Brannon spent nearly 20 years in the specialty food franchising business, growing a franchise called Heavenly Ham to more than 230 stores across the country, before it sold to HoneyBaked Ham.
With more than three decades of experience in the franchise world, Brannon knows what works. He knows the importance of customer service, franchise support, brand consistency and marketing. His expertise has guided Pigtails & Crewcuts to become one of the fastest growing franchises in the United States, where Entrepreneur Magazine has named it to the Franchise 500 list for five consecutive years. In addition, in 2010, Parents Magazine named Pigtails & Crewcuts one of the Top 10 Chains for Kid Birthday Parties.
