Haircuts can be unnerving experiences for kids. Sitting in the big chair, having scissors close to their heads and the buzzing of the electric razor can be traumatic – that is until they get a lollipop out of it. But whether your kids are fine with haircuts or scream at the mention of one, they will undoubtedly enjoy turning the tables and becoming a stylist of their own. A new app, Toca Hair Salon, lets kids do just that.
Toca Hair Salon is a very cute app that gives the scissors (and blow dryer and buzzer) to your child. He or she can choose one of four characters as a client and then get to cutting, coloring, drying and more, as they create an array of possible looks. There’s even a magic potion that grows hair back if one is too liberal with the shears. Kids can take “snapshots” of their sensational styles and save them for inspiration for the next Toca Hair Salon adventure.

(Full disclosure: These apps were developed by Toca Boca, a division of our parent company Bonnier in Sweden.)
