Get a Haircut and Support The Autism Society of Iowa


Here is a great chance to help support the Autism Society of Iowa and get your kiddos a haircut too.

Press Release from Shear Madness

Autism now affects 1 in 68 children in America. Autism is diagnosed four times more often in boys than girls. Autism is the fastest growing development disorder, yet the most underfunded. Currently there is no cure for autism, though with early intervention and treatment, the diverse symptoms related to autism can be greatly improved and in some cases overcome.

In support of National Autism Awareness Month, during the month of April Shear Madness Haircuts For Kids will be donating $1 for every haircut we cut weekdays Monday – Friday 12pn- 3pm to the Autism Society of Iowa. The Autism Society of Iowa provides advocacy, support and information to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, their families, professionals and communities throughout the state of Iowa.

At Shear Madness Haircuts For Kids our goal is to provide THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE and MOST POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT for CHILDREN TO GET THEIR HAIRCUT! For many young children, getting your haircut can be intimidating and scary. At Shear Madness Haircuts For Kids we put kids and parents at ease. Kids enjoy our colorful and friendly environment where they sit in cars, airplanes and motorcycles for styling chairs while watching a movie during their haircut. As children get older, we have regular sized chairs they can play XBOX while getting a haircut. Our specially trained stylists take great pride in creating an enjoyable and memorable haircut experience. We top off the experience with a special surprises kids love — a sticker and a sucker (if approved by mom and/or dad). Shear Madness Haircuts For Kids offers other services catering to children such as Diva Days, mini-manis, Spa Manicure & Pedicures, Birthday Parties, etc. Our guests can also shop our Boutique offering the largest selection of hair bows and accessories, children friendly hair and styling products and great selection of gifts for girls and boys.

Shear Madness Haircuts For Kids is appointment-based and open:

  • Monday – Friday 9am – 7pm
  • Saturdays 8am – 5pm
  • Sundays 12n – 5pm

To schedule your appointment please call us at 515-457-SMAD (7623).
