Kids across the country are lining up for the experience of a lifetime as a unique kids hair studio opens it’s doors in Lisburn. The Kidz Shack, is a new concept salon created by the mastermind behind the hugely successful barber shop, The Man Shack, and features everything a kid could ever want to keep them entertained while getting their hair done.

Featuring, playstations,TV’s, kid friendly tablets, retro table computer games, football table, pop corn and slushy machines and even a soft play area for little ones! The team at the Kidz Shack have literally thought of everything, including a sensory room designed by Autistic kids for Autistic kids. Kenny Parker, creator of The Kidz Shack says he wanted to make it so that every child could enjoy the experience and sought the help of a local ASD family support Group;

                “Children dealing with any form of ASD often find it hard to come into a busy salon to get their hair cut, 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. We decided that this was a big thing for young children and decided that when we opened the Kidz Shack that this was a very important aspect for us to include. The Belvoir ASD Family support Group have also provided our staff with training and support on dealing with children on the spectrum – they have been a massive help.”

Young children getting their hair cut for the first time will be treated to a very special certificate to mark the occasion and make them feel special while every child will leave with a temporary Kidz Shack tattoo, the Kidz Shack even features a photo booth so parents can capture their kids new look before they mess it up!

Kenny goes on to say;

                “I wanted a trip to the hairdressers to no longer be a boring experience for children and we’ve tried to think of every angle to make sure that this is about the kids and how they enjoy the experience as opposed to them getting fed up sitting in a chair. We hope this will make life easier for the parents and we’ll even make sure Mum’s and Dad’s get a free tea or coffee while they wait. ”
