Entrepreneur: Nicky Gray

Fidgets is a salon that is specially designed for kids. Kids can choose from a range of character salon chairs and enjoy a seat in the fast lane while watching a favourite DVD. Fidgets’ stylists are fully trained and are used to working with children of all ages.

Fidgets understands that some children do not enjoy getting their hair cut, but once a child enters this friendly environment and chooses the character chair they want to sit in, they normally don’t even notice the stylist cutting away.
