Upcoming Broadcasts

We are meeting with the CEO of Pigtails & Crewcuts, Wade Brannon. Pigtails & Crewcuts is a children's salon franchise that understands the need for a memorable, stress-free haircutting experience for the entire family. From your child's first haircut to ?Mom! The whole football team is getting mohawks, I want one too?, as a parent, you want your children's locks in good hands. When veteran franchisor, Wade Brandon, came into the original salon with his two daughters as a customer, he immediately saw great potential to replicate and grow the Pigtails concept. After purchasing the single unit, he initiated the franchise offering to meet the increasing demand for services that cater to families with young children in the $58 billion haircut industry. Since launching the franchise opportunity in 2005, Pigtails & Crewcuts has grown to 61 open units across the nation with 57 in development.
