  • West London-based Bigoodi has become a popular children's destination

    Business is booming at a French salon for children, despite the difficult economic crisis.

    Bigoodi, located in Parsons Green, West London, was launched in May 2012 and has become one of the area’s most popular children’s destinations.

    As well as selling luxury children’s clothes by the likes of Tricot de Margot and De Luna, the store offers haircuts, pampering and styling and bespoke birthday parties for 2-15 year-olds featuring song contests, dressing up competitions and quirky goody bags.

    Kids who visit the salon are truly treated like little princes and princesses, with their own private seating areas and TV to watch the latest popular programmes as they have their hair cut and styled.

    Co-owner Sarah Gavin said starting a new business despite a recession has been hugely rewarding.

    She said: ‘It’s been an incredible 12 months and despite the tough economic climate, we’ve taken Bigoodi from strength-to-strength and welcomed a wonderfully loyal customer base.

    ‘Bigoodi is a place for family and fun. We continue to set a new standard for children’s hairdressing in the UK and in 2013 bring our customers something new with the launch of Bigoodi retail online and a range of exciting new party formats.’

    The store is now planning to introduce a loyalty card offering regular visitors 20 per cent off every fifth cut and a free haircut on every tenth visit.

    Bigoodi is located on 52 New Kings Road, London SW6 4LS. Call 020 7736 47 68 or visit their website for more information.
