SUCCESS STORY; KIDS HAIR SALON CELEBRATES 25 YEARS! !
Li’l Klippers Puts on its Party Hat and Thanks Community for
Continued Support With a Birthday Celebration, Festivities for Children and
Families! Li'l Klippers, Seattle's original kids hair salon since 1988, invites
the neighborhood to join in celebrating its 25th birthday on Saturday March 2nd.
This celebration recognizes devoted clients and the dream
they helped to make possible! As the first of its kind, Li'l Klippers opened
its doors in March of 1988 in Roosevelt Square on 65th and Roosevelt inside Me
n Moms; 25 years later Li'l Klippers still has the honor of serving 3
generations of clients from its beginning in 1988, along with welcoming new
clients and friends every day!
Since Li'l Klippers has opened, stylists have developed long
lasting relationships with clients, watching them grow from first haircuts to
prom hair, and even wedding up do’s. “Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined
that 25 years later I would still have Li’l Klippers. Watching our staff grow
and evolve is an amazing experience. The connections I have made over the years
with my clients have been some of the most fulfilling of my life. I truly feel
blessed to be in a profession that I still love” says owner, Rebecca Bjorback.
Li'l Klippers was inspired by two mothers looking to fill a void
in the services offered to parents. Jacki Copacino and Debi Preston,
consignment store owners, sisters-in-law and clients of Rebecca Bjorback, had a
revolutionary vision for a kid's boutique with an in store salon that catered
specifically to children. Becky took their advice and used her passion for hair
cutting to create Li'l Klippers, a hair salon 'specially for kids. ! !
Since then the vision for Li'l Klippers has evolved. As Li'l
Klippers loyal and adored clients continued to grow, the salon realized it
needed to expand as well! In October 1997 Li'l Klippers moved to the
Wallingford Center, adding a complementary salon "the edge hair
salon", which caters to tweens, teens and adults.
The welcoming and patient stylists enjoy working with kids of
all ages. The salon has handcrafted wood chairs shaped like animals &
vehicles for children to sit in, with toy bins and books to keep them occupied
and happy. It's a fun, bright and comfortable environment for parents and children
Li’l Klippers has been awarded Seattle Magazine's Best Kids
salon in Seattle for many years in a row and have been nominated for
Nickelodeon Parents' Pick Awards for Best Hair Salon in 2010 and 2011. In 2012 they
were a King 5 Best of Western WA finalist for best Children's Salon.
This exciting day will feature cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes,
Li'l Klippers balloons, complimentary nail painting, face painting, amazing
deals on some of Li’l Klippers favorite products and a raffle with various
prizes, along with other festivities. One lucky raffle winner will win a year
of haircuts at the original price from 25 years ago and another will win a
basket of Bumble and Bumble hair products! In the spirit of Li’l Klippers’s
commitment to support the community's youth, all proceeds from the raffle will
be donated to the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club.
