One beauty salon has decided that enough is enough and kids just are NOT welcome through their doors.
Celebrity eyebrow queen, Kristin Fisher, has decided to ban children from her acclaimed brow salon in Sydney’s Double Bay.
Writing on her Instagram page, the brow expert explained why she is ‘imposing a new rule that clients must not bring children or babies to their appointments’.
‘Recently, we have had times where there have been ten children in the salon at one time, all unattended, whilst their mothers get treatments done,’ Kristin wrote.
‘It simply isn’t fair to the other clients who have come solo, who for them this is their monthly treat/splurge and want some peace and quiet whilst they have their brows or lashes done, nor is it fair to my staff who are constantly chasing after kids and nursing babies (even though we secretly love this – they also have to answer the phones and re-book clients!).’

I have been overwhelmed with the support from my loyal clientele and the general public on my decision to have a child free salon. As a mum and a business owner this decision has not been made lightly so I am grateful at how positive the feedback has been! Please note the children in this photo were removed from the salon at 8.59am ????
The brow expert continued to say that recent times in the salon have seen ‘kids run onto the street, we’ve had clients leave midway through their appointments as they’re too annoyed about the noise being made and we’ve had mums call and complain saying their brows are crooked after they’ve been nursing a squirming baby the whole appointment.’
As a mum herself Kristin acknowledged how difficult it can be for mothers to get away for an hour for an appointment.
‘That being said, I make sure all of my “me time” appointments are just that – for me,’ she said.
Kristin concluded the post by saying she hoped the salon’s ‘beloved mummy clients’ can find alternative childcare prior to their appointment, so that people can enjoy their brow or lash experience ‘relaxed and child free’.
Followers were divided on their opinions with some agreeing that taking your child really wasn’t a good idea, and others arguing that some people simply have no choice.
Kristin has thanked her clients for their support and understanding since making her tough decision.
