About Snip-Its

In search of a hair salon to take her young children to, Joanna Meiseles ended up opening it herself in 1995. Snip-Its proprietary characters, games and stories are designed to keep kids entertained while they get their hair cut, and at the end of each visit they receive a prize. Snip-Its locations also offer children's parties and sell hair care products.
