Kid-Friendly Kuts, is one of our older programs which was inspired by Anne Dupuis and her son Ethan, in conjunction with LaFamille Hair Salon, and with cooperation from Allison LeBeouf, LOTR and Marsha LeGoullon, M.A., CCC-SLP, of Pediatric Therapy and Learning Center and Joslyn McCoy, Ph.d, BCBA-D, of Aspire Behavioral Health.

The ongoing program will be limited to 4-5 families each month it is offered. Email Anne Dupuis at to reserve a space for child. Reservations will be available on a first come, first serve basis. If you cannot rsvp, but are able to make it the day of a scheduled event, call the salon to inquire of availability.

It is recommended for children who are fearful, that you allow him or her to visit the salon a few times either by participating in the program without opting for a haircut, or dropping by the salon outside the program’s scheduled dates and times prior to trying to get a haircut.  The goal is to make the children feel more comfortable with the whole process of visiting the salon and getting a haircut.
