In July of 1994, founder of Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids, Cookie Shelton, developed one of the first children's-only hair salons in the United States, located in Indianapolis, Indiana. She was trying to change the age-old image of the barbershop and beauty salon. Her goal was to create a place where kids could have a good time and still receive a great haircut. With over fourteen years of existence in Indianapolis, and franchised outlets being developed across America and even in other nations, Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids has become one of the leaders in a specialized market. As of 2008, we provide services for more than half of a million children per year, and are growing rapidly around the world.
