Why Pigtails & Crewcuts?

  • Our experience. Owners Bucky Cook and Wade Brannon are pioneers in the franchise business. In 1984, they took a small retail store in South Carolina and grew it into a nationally recognized brand with more than 230 franchise locations. A competitor purchased the business in 2002.
  • Our growth potential. Child-centric hair salons are a relatively new concept with unlimited growth opportunities. Many Pigtails & Crewcuts owners have expanded with ease from one salon to multiple locations. Our business model lends itself to multi-unit development because of the ease of operation, relatively low cost of entry and potential high return on investment.
  • Our reputation. Since 2007, Entrepreneur magazine has included Pigtails & Crewcuts in its 'Franchise 500' list, and Parents.com has named Pigtails & Crewcuts one of the 'Top 10 Chains for Kid Birthday Parties.'
  • Our services. We want kids and parents to enjoy themselves and we’ve found a proven way of doing just that. Our brightly colored salons, friendly franchise owners, salon staff and satisfied customers are the best proof we can offer. Plus, we’re here to support you, every step of the way.

"I own two Pigtails & Crewcuts salons in Georgia (one is in Roswell and the other is in West Cobb) along with my husband, Scott. I opened the first kids’ salon franchise because I was frustrated with my own experiences, as a parent, with kids’ haircuts. Driving my two children all over town, I watched them sit (and sometimes cry) through too many mediocre or even bad cuts at salons aimed at adults. I wanted a place that really catered to all children, a place where kids can laugh their heads off or have a melt down and not be met with judgment. I used to be a social worker, so I know the importance of a supportive, fun and friendly environment for everyone. Seeing that need in my town, I took matters into my own hands and opened my first Pigtails & Crewcuts. The first experience was so positive that in 2010, I opened a second location. I really enjoy being a business owner. It allows me a flexible schedule, so I can be there for my family. And I love my customers. I consider them a part of my extended Pigtails & Crewcuts family. Through them, I get to be a part of so many firsts—first haircut, first day at school, first lost tooth, first trip to Disney World and the list goes on. As a franchise owner, I receive the support and guidance of the corporate office, but I also get to tailor the salon to fit within my own community. I sell the kinds of organic products that I use on my own children, and I buy bows and hair accessories from local moms. Being a business owner also allows me a chance to give back. I regularly spearhead back-to-school drives and food drives. And last year, alone, we carried out 200 haircuts for Locks of Love, with the kids donating their hair to sick children in need. At Pigtails & Crewcuts, I’m doing my part to make this town, and this world, a better place, one child at a time."
— Nancy and Scott Anderson — Roswell & West Cobb, Georgia

"I lost my job due to the sale of the company and I was looking for something that I could stay connected to my daughter who was around six at the time, where I could still do field trips and volunteer in her classroom and have flexibility, but still work in a meaningful capacity. There was a Pigtails & Crewcuts in Chula Vista that I took my daughter to for a haircut and one day as I sat there I said “This would do well in my neighborhood.”

I looked at another franchise opportunity, but thought the hair salons would be more global or appealing to everybody. Once I found Pigtails & Crewcuts, I looked at a couple of other salon franchises and decided based on the atmosphere inside of the store, which was important to me – the colors and the craziness, and also the cost – that I should go with Pigtails & Crewcuts.

The support from the franchise is fantastic. When you own your own business, you don’t necessarily have a mentor or anybody to bounce ideas off of. For me, that’s the best support I get from the franchise, but it’s everything from helping me with my email to decision making based on ads, internal promotions… all types of stuff. It’s just a super supportive franchise!"
— Kendra Keating, Owner — Del Mar, Del Sur, San Diego & San Marcos, CA
