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!).’

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.

  • I agree that kid’s shouldn’t be with the Mum’s while getting their eyebrows done. I’m sure the Mum’s could find a friend who could look after their child for them and they could return the favour.

  • People should look after their own children

  • I completely understand! I wouldn’t dream of going somewhere like this and bringing my child it’s crazy! Only time I’d consider it is if it was just a hair cut and I knew it wouldn’t be long and in this case my children would know how to behave and sit on the chairs and wait as we do when I go to the dentist.

  • I guess I can understand where she is coming from.

  • Sometimes you have to prioritise your children! Other times you have to simply get a baby sitter. Not to be too condescending or presume things but if Mammas in double bay can afford to go and get their eyebrows shaped then they can surely pay / organise for babysitting!

  • Absolutely fair for all concerned, including the kids who clearly don’t want to be there!

  • I definitely don’t take kids to beauty appointments. They would suck all the fun out of it.

  • Yep that’s fair. For treatments like that, the last thing you want is to take your kids with you, I know I wouldn’t


    • It is relax time and make the most of it!

  • It sounds as though it really got out of hand. 11 kids at one time! Good to make rules.

  • If you want to home a relaxing time and a treat leave your kids at home

  • It is not the job of employees to supervise children and this seems quite ok to have rules.

  • Yep, a beauty salon is not a childcare center. Good on her !

  • Good for her. I love kids but if I had gone to a spa it would be my alone and relax time and I wouldnt want to deal with my kids let alone someone elses.

  • She’s handled this in a professional, logical and caring manner. Places like these are not child minding centres and it’s not fair to expect workers to watch your kids so you can get your eyebrows/hair/face done. As hard as it can be to get time alone to do these things, there are some places just not suitable for children to be. Anywhere that restricts your ability to handle and care for them properly is one of them.

  • Having children running or crawling around in a confined space unsupervised could be quite dangerous. In fact it is a OH&S issue and a Govt. Dept. could get involved if somebody is injured.
