There is no shortage of salons in D.C., but when your little tyke needs a trimming, an adult salon may not be the best fit. These kid-friendly haircut havens are great options for families who need to keep small ones occupied and get them a grandparent-approved haircut. Most offer play areas for kids, and all feature gentle staff members who will put your child at ease. – Allie Moore
