Gloria, I am so happy to hear about this place. Haircuts were so anxiety causing for us for so many years.

The noises, the smells and the tactile experience of having a nylon cape all add to the anxiety of an unknown adult using sharp instruments near their heads. Not too much different from a visit to the dentist that so many people dread. Glad to hear about a place where our children can get their haircuts done in a quiet place and be distracted by a movie of their choice.
