There are no hairdressers yet entirely dedicated to children, so don’t expect TV screens, fish tanks etc. We have chosen a selection of hairdressers that don’t do pudding bowl cuts and listen to what you want for your child.

1. Gavin Ryan’s Salon & Spa

Opening Hours: 8.30am -7.30pm | Independence Arcade (upstairs of the clock tower) | 077 300 0651
They have special booster seating for the children, which makes life a lot easier. They take time on each haircut and listen to what you want.

2. Rumours

Open Hours: 8.30am – 7pm (Closed on Sundays) | 467 Union Place, Colombo 02 | 0112669898
Everyone here is very welcoming to children and can make them feel at ease. Prabath is our favourite but you’re guaranteed a good experience with anyone they recommend.

3. Base Hair & Nail Studio

Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm | 3rd Floor, Colombo City Centre |137 Sir James Pieris Mawatha, Colombo 02 | 076 156 5588
Aravinda is a fantastic hairdresser, and so gentle and calming. The kids will love him, and he will do sympathetic cuts for your kids that don’t leave them looking like aliens. They are based in the Colombo City Centre, so it is easy to let your kids play in the play area afterwards or get an interesting bite to eat.
