Featured Fun Spot: Manta’s Cuts Kids Salon in Wilmington, NC

Manta’s Cuts Kids Salon is one of my favorite kid-friendly businesses in Wilmington. My son absolutely loves to play on the sunken pirate ship in their lobby and enjoys getting haircuts with the talented, patient, and super sweet, Miss Laura. It’s also the perfect place to get your kids hair cut before your next family photo session! The owner, Jessica Dixon, was gracious enough to give me a few minutes of her time for this interview.

What inspired you to open up a kids salon? I opened up Manta’s Cuts because I was a mother looking for a fun, good-quality and affordable haircuts for my two boys, my husband and myself. I was sure that if I was looking for my dream salon that other families were also looking. Once I got started on the dream of bringing this incredible new kids salon to Wilmington I just couldn’t stop thinking about how to make the salon perfect and awesome. Piece by piece the salon came together and I couldn’t be more proud of how it turned out. I am so happy that we can provide quality haircuts for babies, kids, special needs clients, men and women. Plus, we make for an awesome Mother Daughter Date and party place.

Do you offer any services specifically for little ones (toddler age)? Toddlers are a specialty of ours, so we cater to them a couple of different ways. First and foremost, our stylists work at a children’s salon because they LIKE kids and are thrilled with the spirit that toddlers bring to the world. Secondly, we have a sunken pirate ship, that no kid can resist, and a treasure chest, to choose a prize from after their haircut. If that isn’t enough, Friday is Friend Friday! If you bring in a friend and you both get services done you can have your choice of snacks and we know toddlers are all about the snacks. Additionally, we do adult haircuts and while that might not seem like a toddler thing, it really is because parents can enjoy getting a great haircut without worrying about their child “behaving” in a regular salon. There are plenty of toys for them to play with here!

What are a few of your most popular services? Kid’s haircuts are definitely our top service, but that could easily be guessed. What you might not guess is the popularity of our pedicures, such as the Mommy & Me, and our feather hair extensions, they are my personal favorite.

With two recent Family Favorite 2016 Wilmington Parent awards for “Best Children’s Haircut” and “Best Party Venue”, it’s no surprise Manta’s Cuts Kids Salon is quickly becoming the go-to salon in the Wilmington area.
