A very common problem

People are very unaware how common head lice is. Lice are a very common problem, especially for kids. They're contagious, annoying, and sometimes tough to get rid of. Hair Fairies can help get rid of this pesky problem. It's best to treat head lice quickly once they're found because they can spread easily from person to person. Hair Fairies will not only help you get rid of them but also help you so they do not come back.

Hair styles at Hair Fairies make it more worthwhile!

We are excited that we will have a special Hair Fairies Hair Styles Menu for you to choose at our location when we finish your Head lice treatment at any of our locations!  The Menu consist of fun, pretty, and quick styles from braids to buns that will help your family's Head Lice experience be more pleasant and enjoyable.
 
If we can not do the style, don't Freight!  We have treats from our treasure chest to make the experience more worthwhile!!!

Stay Safe

Head lice is as common as catching a cold. Recently, we had a client who came to visit their grand kids for the weekend. They were at the house visiting for a total of 2 hours before they realized one of the children was itching a little more than normal. Unfortunately, the child did have head lice. The rest of the family were clear, except for the grandma. We found 1 bug and 1 egg during our treatment. So remember, keeping the hair up and tight is a great preventative measure. Also, tea tree, rosemary, lavender, and eucalyptus are all different scents they don't like. Stay safe this summer!

We love our clients!

Being a Hair Fairy tech means seeing many different faces every day! Sometimes we see the same faces once every year, sometimes every month (usually for a monthly check!) and it's great to see our clients grow and update us on all that has been going on in their lives. The "B" sisters came in to get a lice screening this week after coming home from their stay away camp. They have been our loyal clients since 2012 and we have a very special connection to them. When they walked in to their appointment they both seemed upset, arms crossed and everything! Their mother walked up to the desk and told me that they were both mad because they couldn't decide what technician was going to check who! At the end of the day they both left super happy because we sat them across from each other and everyone was able to "cross chat." There's nothing more rewarding than to see my clients happy! 

Arranging Play Dates

Arranging Play Dates,
Our little clients after undergoing our lice treatment, decided to go into our play area while waiting for their parents to
get checked for lice. While playing they introduced themselves (since they met here in our lice treatment salon in CT) and right
away decided that they wanted to plan a Play Date, the problem was that they, neither the little girl nor the little boy, couldn't
decide who would ask their parent for permission. It was very funny listening to them (boy)" can you ask your mom for permission to go on a Play Date with me?", (girl) " why don't YOU ask your mom to ask my mom to go on the Play Date?".
After listening to them go back and forth I decided to intervene since one of the moms asked me what was I laughing at to which I replied to the mothers "well your kids are trying to set up a Play Date and they don't dare to ask you" both moms were laughing and exchange phone numbers. One of the moms said " You guys make this place too fun for the kids"

Say Hello Water!

A family of 6 came in to Hair Fairies to have their lice removed. The youngest o f the bunch had just turned 2 years old. Mo m was a little concerned he would not cooperate and sit in the chair to get screened.  The Hair Fairy sat him down and started talking to him and showing him what was going to happen and what combs we were going to use. He sat down and started to laugh when the Fairy sprayed water on his head. He wanted to hold the water bottle so we sat it right by his side. He was talking to the water bottle saying, “hello water hello come out and play.” Needless to say all the Hair Fairies were ooihing and aahing over the little boy and the plus side was he was lice free.
Happy Client

Happy Client

A client we had right before going to lunch was so happy with our services that she went downstairs while her husband was paying and bought us lunch to show her appreciation for our help. We at Hair Fairies love making our clients happy. 
 

Speak Up

Recently, we had a little girl who had picked up head lice at a day camp. Her family and herself did all the necessary steps to obtain our guarantee. To obtain our guarantee, every person in the household must be checked so we know there is no cross pollination during the treatments. During her guarantee check, we discovered she had picked up head lice again. We asked her, "Did you touch heads with anyone at camp?" Her response, "No, but I did borrow someones brush before I was picked up." The point is, your child obtained head lice from someone. Probably someone close to your child. If you don't notify your child's friends/family and anyone else they have been around, then there is a chance they may pick it up again.

Dirty Jobs

Recently, we had a Grandma come in to get a screening because one of her grandchildren had head lice. The funny thing is, when she received the frantic call from her daughter, she was in fact watching Dirty Jobs. She was watching the episode where Mike Rowe visited Hair Fairies in San Francisco. Thankfully she did not end up getting head lice but it's still a pretty funny story.

The Last Minute Treatment

The Last Minute Treatment,
A desperate mom came with tears in her eyes to our Hair Fairies salon in CT after discovering that her 3 year old had head lice, and the worst part was the timing since the little girl's birthday was the next day, and the mom was having lots of guests that she had invited to come to the birthday party and thought that she would have to cancel everything. After getting treated -- mom and daughter were able to leave with a smile on their faces, clean hair and most important didn't have to cancelled their birthday party!!!

Tickled

 

We get the cutest clients in Dallas, I recently had a three year old boy come in after finding out he had lice at daycare. While I was treating him, he told me, "Mrs. Loren, did you get my fleas out?" I was tickled and replied, "No sweetie, you don’t have fleas, but I did however remove every nit and louse!"  Moments later he said, “You know, lice are a lot like fleas for humans.” HAHAHA

I have the most creative clients! 

 

They Grow up so Fast

Hair Fairies has been around for over 15 years! Over that time, we have educated and serviced thousands of families across the country. Recently, one family came to our Chicago location to say goodbye. The reason why they were saying goodbye is because their youngest child had graduated recently from high school and is going to college shortly. We have known this family since 2007, when our Chicago location first opened up. Over the years, this family would come in either for head lice checks or treatments. We have seen these kids grow up in front of our very eyes. Since there are no more kids in the house, the parents have decided to leave the Midwest to seek new adventures. Before the new adventures began, she just wanted to say how much she enjoyed coming here in her time of need. We really do appreciate this gesture and hope for nothing but great things in the future.

Thank you N. Family from Florida who came to San FRancisco!

 
We would like to say thank you to the N. family who came over to us from Florida AND from New York Manhattan for Head Lice treatments.  
 
Mrs. N called a day before since she found us online and called.  We asked her to take pictures to send to us to verify, and from the pictures we were able to confirm.  The family flew in the next day and we were able to accommodate them.  The family is NOW Head Lice FREE!  
 
We advised them of prevention methods and when they go back to Florida and New York, they can inform their daughter's school about our 2 Free Hour Head Lice Screening at Schools, and 20 percent off for treatments when we do find other kids in the school for our current promotion!

World Cup Fever

Soccer fans (and Hair Fairies clients alike) rejoice! The FIFA World Cup is here! I have been patiently waiting for the past four years for the most awesome two weeks in soccer! This past Friday I was busy with clients and calls and all kinds of Hair Fairy work and could not bare the thought of missing out the Mexico vs Cameroon game. I desperately looked for a radio station that would play the game for me and had no luck. When I heard the little studio next door BLAST the game on their TV I was quick to RUN next door and ask them for a huge favor: please tap on the wall if Mexico scores. They were delighted to do so. So there I was, eager to hear anything, a little knock, a little tap...for a long time there was nothing! UNTIL IT HAPPENED! I though the yogis next door were going to knock the wall down!  Mexico won the game 1-0 and the coolest part is they agreed to knock on the wall for all the teams I'm cheering for until someone wins the cup! Happy FIFA games everyone! And may the best team (Mexico or USA of course ;) ) win! 

A funny moment in Hair Fairies

A family came in because they suspected that their kids had head lice. The daughter had a treatment but the family had cut off all the son's hair, so when we checked him, we didn't find any lice. They got lucky because buzz cuts don't usually get rid of the head lice infestation. The boy had come into Hair Fairies with his friend. When the grandmother came into hair fairies a little later she walks up to her grandson not recognizing him and says, "hi, I'm Johnny's grandmother." The little boy looks at his grandmother and says "hi, I'm Johnny, your grandson." The grandmother couldn't believe she didn't recognize her grandson because of the buzz cut and started laughing, and everyone started laughing as well. Very funny moment for all of us at hair fairies.
