SEATTLE, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle's upscale Madison Valley neighborhood, with its swanky shops, parks and cafés, might seem like a strange place for a head lice treatment salon to set up shop. But there's Hair Fairies, nestled between a Tuscan restaurant and a French bistro on E Madison Ave, and CEO Maria Botham thinks it's perfect. "We aren't just any old lice clinic, we pride ourselves on being a destination for parents and kids to feel comfortable, and release some of the stigma associated with lice. Everyone can get lice – it doesn't discriminate – and we strive to create a space that is accepting and welcoming to everyone."
Integrating into the local neighborhoods is not a coincidence, it's an intentional part of the Hair Fairies vision, and has been key to their growth. Hair Fairies has grown from a one-woman mobile service to a nationwide network of 13 salons, each carving out their own unique place in the communities in which they serve.
Walk into the Seattle Hair Fairies salon and you can immediately see what they call the "Hair Fairies difference" – the lobby is clean and bright, and a kid-focused play area is stocked with toys, books, and video games. They do such a good job "kids have even asked to have their birthday parties here!" says Botham.
For parents, free Wi-Fi and comfortable chairs help to provide peace of mind from the moment you walk in. Professional service technicians use non-toxic, plant-based products for treatment – a welcome reprieve from the harsh home chemical treatment options. For busy parents, Hair Fairies also offers a convenient drop-off service, allowing them to run other errands while kids get treatment. And while kids may volunteer to make a return visit to Hair Fairies, their proprietary method of manual removal and all-natural ingredients ensures that only one treatment is necessary except in the most extreme cases. This allows families to get back to enjoying everything else the neighborhood has to offer.
