We tried this salon because of a recommendation from a friend and were pleasantly surprised at how much our son ENJOYED his haircut and how good a haircut he got. I am recommending this salon to all of my friends.

I had a horrible experience at this salon, The cut was so uneven it looked like it was cut with a weed-wacker. The front desk was RUDE and I should have walked out right then and there. The whole staff was unprofessional. I learned a lesson and will travel the extra distance to Mission Viejo to a Star is Born where I am always 100% satisfied.

I have been taking my kids to First Cut for the past 5 years. My kids love it and so do I. It is nearby where I live, and they always get the trendiest haircuts and styles. First Cut is the only place I would go for my kids haircuts!!

I recently took my kids to First Cut in Corona Del Mar, on the recommendation of a friend of mine. Great recommendation. I wouldn't take my kids anywhere else. Wonderful kid atmosphere, entertainment for the kids watching TV, and the best haircut my kids have ever had. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

We recently moved into the area from Calabasas. We have three beautiful kids and they are really into full service salons. We use to go to a place called Okie Dokie Kids Salon that was fantastic, but this place just did not cut it for us in comparison. I think we were just spoiled before and now have higher standards...

First is the most awesome place for haircuts. The stylists are all superb and the kids beg me to go. Reasonably priced at $22 for a top notch first class experience at Fashion Island. I was paying $17 at Rainbow Kids in Irvine. For $5 more, I get a whole experience of a nice place that is conveniently located for my lifestyle in Newport Beach. My hairstylist would charge me $35 to cut my son's hair, and he hated it, and the haircut was very average. First Cut knows kids styles and how to cut children's hair. They are the experts at this. This is the only place for kids haircuts with style in Newport Beach!!!!!!!!

The moment I walked by First Cuts, I wanted it to become our boys' (ages 1-1/2 and 3-1/2) new haircut place after we recently moved here. Alas, our first experience there is our last.

We get in for a 10:15am on a Saturday for our two simulations appointments, together with three other families, apparently with a 10:15am, 10:45am and 11:45am. Lo and behold, after a chaotic loud check-in, they are all seated while we are left waiting.

Some hairdresser eventually seats our younger boy, and starts asking me after each pass with the trimmer if I liked it... She picked up the scissors only for his bangs - sliced in a terrible line after I stated three times they should be naturally thinned instead. How hard is it to keep the existing style and just trim it down! All done in 3 minutes!

Older son sits in with her, and after I explain that I spike his hair with gel, she concludes, hair needs to be long on top - I correct that notion twice. While he?s in the chair, I look down at our toddler only to see that his sideburns are randomly chopped down and never finished? He gets ?touchups? sitting in his dad?s lap. In 3 minutes haircut #2 is done, too. No gel, no spiking.

A day and a shampoo later, I am scared to look?Uneven patches and ?holes? where hair has been cut too short go with long stranded hairs behind the ears, older son?s bangs are diagonal and flat out messy? I?ve only taken them to specially kids hair places before, costing around $15-$18 - at $22 First Cut was the most expensive with the worst results. In contrast, at Okie Dokie Kids Salon in Woodland Hills, which we frequented before we moved, the hairdressers took good 30-45 minutes per cut, and our sons looked like models afterwards, for mere $13.50. Go figure.

Thankfully, our boys? hair grows super fast, so next month we?ll get the mess nicely cleaned up, but that?s not the point... The First Cut salon looks very nice, but the hairdresser we had and the overall experiences were horrendous.

My one year old son LOVED sitting in the airplane while he got his hair cut...the gal who cut his hair was so sweet and really accomodating with him. The front desk staff weren't the greatest..not really friendly and had a little too much of a Newport Beach attitude but the cut and the airplane still made it worth it although I wouldn't go back for just a basic cute. Too expensive but worth it for some pictures and a first cut. I wouldn't get the First Cut package though...I think that was $75.00++

PROS: Cute seats, great atmosphere
CONS: Too expensive, staff a little snotty
