    This is an adorable little store packed with a wide range of great toys. When my daughter was young we were extremely happy with her hair cuts. There was a stylist on Saturday mornings that was very experienced. She actually worked full time at a successful adult salon in Pacific Beach. Then something changed. My daughter received a haircut during the week about 10 months ago. The cut was awful. I believe the hair stylist was brand new and lacked any experience. I asked for a blunt cut and received a crazy short layered cut. My 6 year old was so disappointed. She will never return for a cut (but the toys are great). It has taken us 10 months to grow out her hair. Before getting a hair cut ask for their professional resume. They should post the qualifications of the hair stylist on their website or in the store. I gave the review 2 stars because the atmosphere is inviting and the toys are exceptional.

    This place is very shady! The owners are very greedy and double or TRIPLE-book clients to every FIFTEEN minutes--- so that means your little one is only getting a 5 minute haircut if that and then whipped out of the chair. So in 1 hour they are booking at least 8 to 12 kids or babies, and you usually end up waiting a LONG time because they are so greedy that they OVERBOOK! They probably do this so that while you are waiting so long, your kid will wander around their toy store and want you to buy lots of TOYS for them! Also, they are very condescending, rude and snobby here! And, if you pay attention to the reviews, the owners (Melynie Miller, Leslie and Matt Webb) WRITE THEIR OWN REVIEWS (see Melynie M, Leslie W and Matt W) to give themselves a more positive rating to balance out all the bad reviews they get. Also, if that's not bad enough, the stylist here...I think her name is Lareetha...was not taking her time and cut my son on his ear and he was BLEEDING! Ugh! I am so going to the Better Business Bureau with this and filing a complaint with the State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology! I have consulted with an attorney and may file a lawsuit for their having cut my son's ear.

    This is my first review of many to come in San Diego. I think people need to know the truth and businesses must become accountable for bad services and receive credit for good. After my experience, I've determined that the owner of Little Locks should stay home and hire a good and professional manager. She was rude to my children when they were checking out a jet airplane. She kicked us out of the only area with seats by explaining that the stylists work with "sharp scissors" (duh!). Of course, several other kids and parents were in that area and nothing was said to them. A little later, she told me that a stylist would care for my daughter next, yet then the owner told the stylist to skip me when another customer was walked in early for an appt (what??). When I confronted the owner, she told me that's what happens for being 10 minutes late (it was now 10 a.m. when my appt was at 9 a.m.) Kids and parents where everywhere and others were complaining about being double booked. I finally got frustrated and left.

    The owner obviously is only thinking about one thing: $$$$$$. She will book appts over appts just to get you in the store probably so that the kids will want to buy toys. Good Luck Little Locks. Back to Bambinos for me and my business!

    I have been taking my son to Little Locks since he was 4 years old (he's now almost 10), I thought I could get away with taking him to a barber for a cheaper haircut, what a mistake! I will never stray from this great kid salon ever again. I reccomend everyone take their kids to this salon if you care about what your kids hair looks like. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT place!

    With everybody I know having babies this year I needed a convenient toy store. This shop is right on La Jolla Blvd. and has cute toys- They also wrap for free.

    My 2 year old sister loves to go to Little Locks and play with the wide variety of unique toys they have. We haven't done the haircut there yet, but it seems like the stylists are very friendly and great with kids. The toys are pretty expensive, but worth it, because of how unique and high quality most of them are.

    I first went into Little Locks during the Taste of Bird Rock, when they were offering to do braid girls' hair and give boys a green mohawk. The hair salon is beyond perfect for little children: they have seats in the shape of cars, shampoo in a variey of smells such as chocolate and fruit, and they will entertain your children with a movie. The staff is very kind and friendly as well.

    WOW! We just discovered the most adorable children's hair salon! It's in La Jolla in the Bird Rock neighborhood. My friend recommended it to me and now I'm passing it along to anyone and everyone! The front half of the store is filled with wonderful toys, art supplies and books. The back half is the children's salon. My son got the most amazing haircut by a very nice girl. I was so impressed with the place I even started my Christmas shopping! You must check this place out. I promise you won't be disappointed!
