Named “The Kidz Shack”, the salon hosts a variety of entertainment like computer games, popcorn, TVs and even slushie machines are available for kids whilst at the salon.

Wanting to include every child and make the salon an enjoyable experience, the creator of The Kidz Shack, Kenny Parker, sought the help of local ASD family support group, for advice on helping kids with autism.

Kenny says, “Children dealing with any form of ASD often find it hard to come into a busy salon to get their hair cut, and we realised that when they started coming to The Man Shack and using our Vintage room, which was designed to allow gents to relax and enjoy a quieter experience at the barbers in their own dedicated private room.”

The salon not only treats kids to a special certificate if it’s their first visit – along with a temporary Kidz Shack tattoo – but it also houses a Photo Booth for both parents and kids to capture their new looks!

We’re left wondering if the Kidz Shack wouldn’t mind booking us in for a visit!? What do you think?
