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.

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

  • 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.

  • It’s her business and Ii think her request is reasonable.

  • Seems pretty reasonable to me. No one wants to go to a salon and listen to a screaming or loud child

  • I find it quite fair too!

  • I can understand where she is coming from. I haven’t been to a hair salon in ages because I dreaded the idea of taking my toddler with me and getting her to sit quietly and bother no one. I now have a exclusively breastfed newborn and in serious need of a cut. But have concluded I will have to get someone to come to me with the understanding that boob may or may not come out at some point. Bit rough on those that have “their” hairdresser they love and stuck for what to do with the kids though.

  • I don’t think this s unreasonable, especially since she tells people in advance.
