We've been coming here for four years - we've tried a few others and they were fine, but I love this salon. It's clean, the people are really nice, and they do a good job. My daughter gets a great a-line bob pretty much every time and I've had my hair cut there once or twice (they are fast and the kids can play with the train). Erika is wonderful - so is Polly, and I've had others - most of them are great. We have had one or two that weren't stellar (not Erika), but even those were fine.
A few things to remember -
1. It is really hard to cut kids' hair, even if they are in zombieland watching a movie :-). I have seen them work with kids who are crying, nervous, and a couple of kids that I think might have been autistic, with pretty good success, especially considering they are children's stylists, not behavioral specialists.
2. The price is $17 - roughly comparable to a Super Cuts or the like. If you have adult beauty salon expectations, you should probably go there. This is not to say they don't do a great job - they do. But it is not a $40 hair cut, nor is it meant to be.
3. I'm sure there is turnover, although some have been around for a long time. Like most service jobs, it probably doesn't pay very well (no reflection on the company), plus as a parent I would bet there's a pretty major burnout factor.
Again - they do a great haircut, it's clean, everyone is very nice and good with kids.

This place is a joke! I really wanted a fun place to take our kids but I cant stand crap haircuts! We got a young girl named Erika, she was nice enough but the whole time her thong was hanging out of her pants (not acceptable). I asked her how long she's been working with kids and she said 3 years so I felt she would do a pretty decent job of it....NOT SO! One side was a good 3 inches longer on my girls head and her hair will not lay right. Needless to say I will be taking my girls back to my hairstylist who knows what shes doing.

After visiting many children's hair cutting establishments around the Portland area we landed at Pigtails & Crewcuts in Hillsboro about 18 months ago. We have always had great haircuts for both my son as well as my daughter and they both ask when they can go back and see Erika because she is just so sweet with them. My wife is very particular about my kids hair but she trusts Erika so much with kids that she rarely even goes with us because she knows they will come home with the cut she wanted!

I took my 6 yr old daughter for a haircut, it was unbelievably horrible! She made it so uneven and took less than 5 min for the haircut. I need to take her to Castle Cuts to get it fixed.Save your $20

Went in today with my son , we keep his hair on the longer side and we asked for a trim a normal little boys cut. What does she do? Take out the clipper with shorter than 1/2 inch and takes it to the sides and back! It was to late to say anything I was in shock. Won't be going back.

My wife took our 2 girls to get their hair cut this week for the third time and it will be the last. They cut way to much off the length and put uneven chopped layers, my wife was in tears over it. Are your stylist all fresh out of school? Get someone who can cut a straight line please!

I think Pigtails & Crewcuts has a fun and friendly atmosphere for children. Our family has been very satisfied with the skill level and time management of the stylists and salon. My two daughters love watching the movies while getting their hair cut.
As an adult I have also gotten my hair cut and been very pleased. Our stylist that we prefer is Erika. She is great and very gentle and patient with children. No bad haircuts to report, only GREAT!!

Where this place shines is in the atmosphere it creates for kids. The chairs, the TV's, the train table all go together to make a cool place.

But I bring my kids in for a haircut not entertainment.

I've been bringing my now 4.5 yo girl here since her first cut and today will be the last. The cuts are always of mediocre quality but todays was so poor i'll need to take her someplace to get it fixed. The task was to clean up a chin length bob. the cut is uneven and looks like the back was hacked at.

I just cant continue to pay this price for suck poor work.

My son was cut by a girl name Tammy. She was friendly to my son, and she cut a good haircut. I don't know what all this complain about stylist not being able to cut good. I had a great experience. The place is clean and nice. They got this nice kiddie chair that my son loves to sit on (He picked the Taxi the last time we were there). I don't think there is anything like this saloon around Hillsboro

I've been going here since its opened because its so close to my home and my kids enjoy it but it seems they can't keep a good hairstylist! My favorite was a lady who was there when it first opened, you could really tell had some experience with children and her profession, and a few months ago my latest stylist left to!

Honestly, the work these ladies do .. I cant even explain how much appreciation and respect I have for them.

They literally work on moving targets!! It's amazing.

For the parents that complain about how "horrible" their child's haircut came out, need to understand that they are KIDS, and hair is hair..
IT'LL GROW BACK!!

Be thankful your children even have hair, because there are many kids out there that are sick and don't get the privilege to even get haircuts.

There are some crazy impulsive moms out there.
Ive been to this salon for some time now, and my son and daughter love it.
They've gotten pretty comfortable with a stylist there, ERIKA << the best!

Shes great and friendly. PLUS Ive gone on a Fri and Sat, and have never experienced a "3 hr" wait.
I think this Jessi lady should learn to read time.

I've given Pigtails and Crewcuts two separate chances with awful results both times. The first time, my son's hair came out so poor that I buzzed his hair when we got home. The second time, they wrecked my daughter's lovely hair that we wanted trimmed up. My daughter left with horrible heavy layers that were uneven and chunky. They were so awful, that it made her hair easily tangle and look sloppy even when freshly combed. I had to take her to my expensive grown up salon to have the cut fixed and the experience ended up costing me $66. I will not be going back, and despite the kid friendly environment and cleanliness of the salon, I would suggest that others avoid making the same mistake. UGGGHHH!

I have tried this place twice only because my 4 year old loves the train set they have. The first visit there was a two hour wait, so we got on the "call list "and the receptionist said we would could walk around and shop while waiting to be called as soon as it was our turn. We waited almost three hours before being called and after arriving for "our turn" we waited another 15 minutes!! By this time my son was ready to be done ( and so was I ), but after waiting so long I just had to give it a try. The stylist seemed annoyed to even be there! My son did not feel comfortable with her at all, she was very intimidating looking. She finished the cut with much difficulty, it was an okay cut to say the most. The second time was the last time I will go there ,the stylist smelt horrible of smoke,my child even told me on the car ride home about how "yucky" she smelt. I'm sorry but you are working with children!I will never be coming back to this KIDS salon

We had been taking our 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son to little clippers (who did a great job ever time) but it was quite a drive for us, so we decided to try out pigtails and crew cuts. The experience was horrible. My daughter got the WORST haircut ! I could have done a better job! The stylist seemed unsure of what he was doing and totally butchered my little girls beautiful hair. If you care for your child's hair at all you will NOT take your daughter here go to little clippers!

My kids loves the place, especially the fire truck chair. I think the haircuts is good, the stylists are friendly. We had our son birthday party there. He really enjoyed being cowboys and play games with his friends.

The owner is really nice to us and our kid as well. We definitely will come back for more.

This is a very neat & clean place for kids and the staffs are very friendly. To my surprise, this salon also offers haircut for adults. Out of curiosity, I decided to check out the place this morning. I waited for half hour and noticed how professional the hairstylists at handling kids. There was a baby who had his first haircut. He kept crying, but the hairstylist was very patient and gentle to the baby. She did a great job on finishing the cut.

While waiting, I was a little nervous and afraid because I didn't know the kind of hairstyle that I wanted. But the hairstylist was very friendly and she helped me to figure out what I wanted. She did a great job and I'm very satisfied with the result. She also taught me how to style my hair.

I'll definitely come back for another haircut and I totally recommend this place for kids.

I tryed taking my 2 year old son in to get his haircut, of course being only 2 you can imagine he was scared and needed a stylist that was easy going and kid friendly(going to a kid salon) that is what you think you would get!, but i was wayy wrong, the stylist was so rude and not even trying to make him feel comfortable, i felt like i was doing her job more then she was!.she kept telling me i should leave and try again when he is older(all his was doing was crying and moving around) to me if you work at a kid place you should be able to work with this, i have seen several stylists be able to do so, that was my last time i have ever thought about going there, long story short my son didnt get his haircut, beside one big piece she cut at the top.!.. awful experience will never think about going back

We have tried Kid Castle Cuts...Dirty facility and RUDE staff, we tried Little Clippers...nice place but not so great cuts...finally landed at Pigtails and Crewcuts and we are so pleased! The location is beautiful and CLEAN, the staff is super nice. It may be a bit of a drive but after consistently waiting over and hour on many occasion at Kids Castle Cuts this place was a breeze, it is all walk ins and if there is a wait you can shop at the streets of Tanasbourne and they will call you on your cell when you are next! Can't say enough about this place...definitely try it out!!
