Pikku Hair, the adjoining children’s hair salon, offers a magical and fun place for children to have their haircut, taking the stress away from parents at the same time.

Children can have fun whilst getting their haircut, sitting in a variety of unique and entertaining hairdressing chairs such as cars and princess thrones. Parents can put their feet up with a coffee and a magazine in the waiting area.

Pikku, which means ‘Little One’ in Finnish, will sel a wide range of clothing brands, some of which are exclusive to the UK. Brands will include; Jessie and James, Rachel Riley, Poppy, AlbababY, Gugguu and Toffeemoon. The high quality and carefully selected range will focus on unusual cuts and styles – allowing each child to dress in their own unique way. Pikku also stocks a stunning collection of christening and formal wear for all those unique occasions.

Pikku’s vision is to test the new concept store idea in Newcastle, with plans to extend across the North East and then the rest of the UK. Minna Scaife, explains why she decided to open such a unique store:

“I’m originally from Finland and used to work in Formula 1. But after meeting a Geordie I moved to Newcastle, got married and had a baby! My story, in that sense, is quite unique. I’m now pregnant with my second child and I’ve noticed how difficult it is to find unique children’s clothing – something that I share with many fellow Mums. “


I wanted to create something special that’s not available on the high street. Children, even at a young age, have such a unique style and I wanted to celebrate that. And it is great to be able to support our local High Street with a brand new shopping experience”.
