It’s probably not necessary to remind a parent (or nervous stylist) how daunting it can be when it comes time for a child’s haircut. If you’re one of those lucky parents or nannies whose child looks forward to this event, be thankful. If you’re not, well, step to the front of the line — these special salons focus on cutting kids’ hair and all the experience that surrounds “the event.” It has actually become a perfected art and big business for some, while being a blessing for all. Here are a few of the best in Las Vegas that have fine-tuned the format, from coaxing your youngster with age-appropriate movies to Xbox and Barbie’s Playhouse. Heck, your children might even ask when their next haircut is, because secretly, they can’t wait to climb into the NASCAR replica or check out the newest lineup of hair cement or smoothing serum. – Marco Medrano
