Hair Do Zoo is a “Haircuts for Kids Only” hair salon that started in 1987, in Winnipeg, Manitoba and is locally owned and operated by hairstylist and entrepreneur, Majda Ficko.


MAJDA FICKO – a Licensed Hairstylist, opened her first company, an upscale adult hair salon (MAJDA & COMPANY) in the trendy Osborne Village in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Her ability to communicate and develop relationships with her clients soon saw the clients bringing their children for monthly haircuts.

In a hair salon, Majda quickly found out that adults and children don’t mix.

However, this chaos served to stimulate Majda’s imagination and the idea for a specialty hair salon for children soon began developing in her mind. Then, in 1987, Majda opened Canada’s first ever specialty “haircuts for kids only” hair salon, the Hair Do Zoo.


“Most children are frightened and intimidated by adult surroundings and most hairstylists were not trained or qualified to cut children’s hair.”


Kids go wild about the Hair Do Zoo… and at the same time get a perfect and trendy haircut by licensed and experienced hairstylists who care about kids and quality hair care.

The specialty salon creates a fun and comfortable atmosphere for children by offering children’s special car chairs such as Batman, Spiderman, Race cars and Animal chairs.

In addition, a friendly Alligator gobbles up wet towels while cartoons, fun mirrors, a candy counter and a gaming pre-teen section keeps kids happy.

Our hairstylists are highly trained and qualified to work with children to make the hair-cutting experience fun for kids and relaxing for parents.

Hair Do Zoo has consistently won “Best place for kid’s haircuts” in Winnipeg Parent Magazine and is proud of its high retention of loyal clients and staff. Most staff has been with the salon over 10 years and are now servicing a second generation of clientele.
