As professional barbers and/or cosmetologists, we’ve all encountered frightened children who are getting their first, second, or even third haircut. It can also be an uneasy situation for the barber and the parents. Easing a child’s fear of getting a haircut has always been one of our goals. The experience from start to finish should be fun, stress-free, and positive for the barber, the parents, and of course the child.
Russ Meets the Green Stuffwas written and designed with these goals in mind. It’s a fun, interactive coloring book that both parents and children can enjoy either at the barbershop or at home, with easy-to-read lighthearted, lyrical rhymes, simple to color illustrations, and interactive games in the back of the book.... All the while walking the child through the steps of a haircut, assuring him or her that haircuts are fun! Make this one-of-a-kind coloring book available for your clients today. No barbershop should be withoutRuss Meets the Green Stuff!
