Children’s haircuts can be challenging, but they don’t have to be. A new Vestavia Hills salon, Pigtails & Crewcuts, is out to show that getting Liam’s and Lily’s locks manicured can be an experience that the whole family can enjoy.

Owner Jennifer Murray stands in front of her first Pigtails & Crewcuts location in the Vestavia Hills City Center.

Owned by local entrepreneur and mother Jennifer Murray, the salon, which opened on January 2, offers extra amenities your child will look forward to, such as movies, video games, and toys. If you are coming in for the first trim, Murray also offers first-time haircut packages, designed to curb jitters for your young ones. And when your little one is ready to celebrate a birthday milestone, the team at Pigtails & Crewcuts can put together a memorable day designed to fit your needs.

“We are excited to bring the Pigtails & Crewcuts haircutting experience to central Alabama,” says Murray. “The salon’s mission and experience align perfectly with the family-friendliness and hospitality of the great Birmingham community, and I’m certain kids and parents alike will love what we have to offer.”

While parents will no doubt appreciate the fact that children can be entertained with a Nintendo Switch gaming system, they will come back for the quality of the cut. Pigtails and Crewcuts is a 15-year-old national franchise based in Atlanta that only employs stylists experienced with children’s cuts.

The Vestavia Hills salon is located at 700 Montgomery Highway in the Vestavia City Center, Suite 120 [map], and is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 pm; and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit or call (205) 732-6748.
