Pigtails & Crewcuts, the 80-plus-unit kids’ salon franchise that offers quality haircuts for boys and girls aged zero to 12, has seen significant growth in the past year. Sujatha Jetty, who is leading the brand’s expansion in North Carolina, will soon be opening in the Raleigh suburb of Holly Springs. Having recently secured real estate at 432 Trinity Creek Drive, Jetty is on track to open her Pigtails & Crewcuts in the coming months.

“We are thrilled to announce Pigtails & Crewcuts’ expansion within North Carolina,” said President and CEO Wade Brannon. “There is a tremendous amount of demand for this unique concept; kids typically get haircuts about seven times a year. Pigtails & Crewcuts provides families with a joyful environment for children’s haircuts and a relaxing experience for parents.”

The Raleigh location will bring the total number of salons within North Carolina to five.  The agreement was signed by Jetty, a Raleigh resident who is pioneering the additional growth.

“We are looking forward to serving the Raleigh neighborhood with our Pigtails & Crewcuts location and providing our community with all that our salon has to offer,” said Jetty. 

In addition to haircut and styling services, Pigtails & Crewcuts franchisees enjoy diverse revenue streams. These include retail products such as children's hair care items and accessories, as well as event programming like birthday parties. This multifaceted approach not only boosts profitability but also strengthens customer relationships and retention.

Pigtails & Crewcuts has experienced steady growth, with the aim to add 20 franchise units by the end of 2024 to surpass 100 units in total. This growth is driven by qualified, community-driven entrepreneurs, with a focus on expanding into new states. The brand offers comprehensive training and support, ensuring franchisees can balance work and family life effectively.

Looking ahead, Pigtails & Crewcuts has a focus on expanding in Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah and other states. Alongside single-unit opportunities, the franchise supports multi-unit owners by providing a clear development schedule, large protected territories and discounted franchise fees.  

“As we continue to grow the Pigtails & Crewcuts brand, I couldn’t be more excited for the future,” said Brannon. “Our franchise has always been about more than just haircuts. It's about building a community and enriching lives. For aspiring entrepreneurs, Pigtails & Crewcuts offers not just a business opportunity, but a chance to make a positive impact on both their families and the families in their community.”
