The Amsterdam Mamas Recommends Awards shine a spotlight on the best family activities, events, and services, for all budgets, ages, and interests. Nominated by parents, voted for by parents.

Presenting the winner of the category Best Children’s Hairdresser in Amsterdam:

Wendy’s Kinderkapsalon    

Wendy’s Kinderkapsalon is dedicated to providing your child with a new, modern haircut in a new, fun way. Kids at Wendy’s sit in a car to have their cut instead of a traditional salon chair, and there is a play corner for waiting siblings, where children can explore new toys and crafts. Wendy’s even hosts parties where kids can have their hair and nails styled, and evening discos, with snacks and ice cream. Wendy’s makes haircuts fun with their innovative fusion of playground and salon.


Honourable Mentions:

Wijs West    

De kinderkapperamsterdam (Blitskikker)
