A new children’s hairdressers – Melody’s Children’s Hair Salon – has been opened the Windsor Road children’s clothing retailers “Funky Monkey”.
One of the big problems most parents with toddlers face is persuading their offspring to sit-still long enough to have their locks expertly trimmed – but the Melody salon has been designed to deal with just that problem, and is kitted-out with toys, a DVD player and sporty racing car that children can sit in .
The children’s hairdressers is the second “Melody’s” branch to be set up following a successful four years at the Regent Arcade, Cheltenham.
Dozens of local children underwent their first haircut at Melody’s in Penarth yesterday (Sunday) . Founder Melody Davies says “We’ve had an amazing launch today with children coming to have their haircut in a fun and friendly environment. “
The new Penarth branch also has a child-friendly mini-manicure salon, providing water based nail colours by Nikki Davies, Melody’s daughter. Initially the salon plans to open three days a week; Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

The clothing business Funky Monkey – which houses the new hairdressing saloon – is open 7 days a week and is owned and run by Penarth residents Justin & Rebecca Horton who opened the business in July 2015. It specialises in clothing made from organic cotton, ensuring that clothes are kind to the skin.
