“Necessity is the mother of invention.”  (Plato)

Kathleen_ RickCartoon Cuts grew out of a need.  In 1991, I had two rambunctious toddlers, Matthew and Casey.  They hated to have their hair washed or combed, so you can imagine how they felt about a haircut!  They begged and pleaded to skip their haircuts.  When we finally made it to the salon, they would run around and drive the stylists crazy.  I tried bribes, and I tried punishments.  I was not happy.  They were not happy. But, what could I do? I could open a hair salon catering to children — one with an elephant shampoo wash and televisions at every station.  A salon where kids came first, and moms and dads were thrilled.
