Snip-its: A cut above other franchise opportunities
The Snip-its Story
The last decade has seen the development of many successful businesses specially designed to wow kids.
In 1993, when Joanna Meiseles sought a hair salon that catered to her young children, instead of a salon, she discovered a business opportunity. After two years of extensive research
and planning, Joanna opened the first Snip-its salon in Framingham, Massachusetts to rave reviews.
Now with over 60 franchises up and running, Snip-its is revolutionizing the haircare industry with its a branded entertainment concept focused on the specific haircare needs of children. The children's segment of the haircare industry, a $45 billion market, is currently estimated at $5 billion, with over 40 million children in the United States receiving a haircut an average of eight times per year.
The Snip-its Adventure
Snip-its is the only fully developed entertainment concept in the children's haircare market today, and one of the most innovative concepts in all of retail. From start to finish, a haircut at Snip-its is truly an adventure!
The Snip-its custom interiors feature our own cast of cartoon characters, interactive computer play stations, the Magic Box, and a complete line of haircare products formulated just for kids. Paired with floor to ceiling cartoon murals in splashy vibrant colors, Snip-its offer adventure and excitement in every visit.
