We waited a ridiculously long time to get our son’s first haircut. He was well into his third year when I finally realized it wasn’t about him and his love of his wild crazy mane, but rather it was about US and our image wrapped up in him and blah blah. Hair brushing turned into total freak-out sessions, and he needed a friggin’ haircut.
There wasn’t any doubt in our minds where we’d go. The Yellow Balloon in Studio City is owned by Sabrina, a family friend who cuts with lightening speed, plus an eye for what’s practical and looks good. It’s an L.A. institution. The newly coiffed leave with a lollipop, a couple rounds of video games, and very likely some other treats.
But because I don’t make it to the Valley as often as I should, here’s where I need your help, and where I can help you. So please, leave a comment sharing your favorite family restaurant in the San Fernando Valley for a chance to win a FREE CHILD’S HAIRCUT at the Yellow Balloon ($25 value). Plus you can enter multiple times by showing Facebook love for Taster Tots, liking the Yellow Balloon Studio City, and following TTLA on Twitter by Tuesday, April 5 at noon. (Just be sure to shoot me an email or mention in the comments that you’ve done any or all of the above.) I’ll draw TWO WINNERS and I’ll try to visit your suggestions in the coming months. Mention Taster Tots L.A. at the Yellow Balloon and get 10% haircare products, too.
Thanks and good luck!
