About Us

Loved by kids and parents since 2014. Starfish is not just a salon but it is an experience that we would like kids and parents to enjoy.
Our journey

We launched Starfish in 2014, keeping in mind the needs of kids and teens. It was a journey driven by the thought of creating a brand that will not only personally excite us but also become a fun experience for everyone, right from our tiny customers to their parents.

It has taken us a few years and some tears but mostly lots of laughs and giggles. Today we are excited to have created a brand that is endorsed by more than 10000 parents! Most of all we are thrilled to see the happy smiles on little faces day after day. When kids walk into Starfish they see a bright and vibrant place. They are attended by trained and experienced staff, who love children and ensure that their young clients walk out with a great service and a broad smile!
