Li’l Klippers, the kids hair salon in Wallingford Center, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this Saturday. Just imagine, kids that got their hair cut there when they opened could be sending their own kids there now.
Li’l Klippers, Seattle’s original kids hair salon since 1988, invites the neighborhood to join in celebrating its 25th birthday on Saturday March 2nd. This celebration recognizes devoted clients and the dream they helped to make possible!
As the ﬁrst of its kind, Li’l Klippers opened its doors in March of 1988 in Roosevelt Square on 65th and Roosevelt inside Me n Moms; 25 years later Li’l Klippers still has the honor of serving 3 generations of clients from its beginning in 1988, along with welcoming new clients and friends everyday! Since Li’l Klippers has opened, stylists have developed long lasting relationships with clients, watching them grow from ﬁrst haircuts to prom hair, and even wedding up do’s.
“Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that 25 years later I would still have Li’l Klippers. Watching our staff grow and evolve is an amazing experience. The connections I have made over the years with my clients have been some of the most fulﬁlling of my life. I truly feel blessed to be in a profession that I still love” says owner, Rebecca Bjorback.
Li’l Klippers was inspired by two mothers looking to ﬁll a void in the services offered to parents. Jacki Copacino and Debi Preston, consignment store owners,sisters-in-law and clients of Rebecca Bjorback, had a revolutionary vision for a kid’s boutique with an instore salon that catered speciﬁcally to children. Becky took their advice and used her passion for hair cutting to create Li’l Klippers, a hair salon ‘specially for kids.
Saturday’s celebration will
feature cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes, Li’l Klippers balloons, complimentary nail painting, face painting, amazing deals on some of Li’l Klippers favorite products and a rafﬂe with various prizes, along with other festivities. One lucky rafﬂe winner will win a year of haircuts at the original price from 25 years ago and another will win a basket of Bumble and Bumble hair products! In the spirit of Li’l Klippers’s commitment to support the community’s youth, all proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Wallingford Boys and Girls Club.
Happy Birthday, Li’l Klippers!
