Recently I talked about things to do in Walt Disney World if you love makeup. Today, I’ll cover one of the other main areas of cosmetology: hair. Your hair may not have magical abilities like Rapunzel’s, but you may be looking for something fun to do with your or your child’s hair while on your trip. So, here are five things to do in Walt Disney World if you love hair.
1. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
The first item on today’s list was also on the makeup list. Little girls can get their hair done in a variety of princessy styles at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and from what I’ve heard, the styles do last through a day in the parks. You can choose from several packages that range in price from about $55 to $200, but if you only want a hairdo, you can stick with the lowest package at $54.95.
2. Harmony Barber Shop
A less expensive option is to get your child’s hair done at Harmony Barber Shop. They don’t do really fancy styles there, but kids do get sprinkled with pixie dust after getting their hair cut. The barbers there also do some fun things with colored gel. A child’s first haircut there is $18, and regular kids cuts are $15. Adults can get their hair cut there too for $19. For more details on Harmony Barber Shop, see my post about first haircuts in Walt Disney World.
3. Ivy Trellis Salon
If you’re looking for more than a simple haircut, you might want to visit Ivy Trellis Salon in Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. I’ve never been there, but the Disney website indicates they offer full cut, color, and styling services.
4. Mandara Spa
If you want to get your hair styled as well as enjoy some relaxing spa treatments, you’ll want to go to Mandara Spa in Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. They do cuts, color, highlights, permanent waves, styling, waxing, and conditioning treatments, plus massages, wraps, facials, and other spa treatments. Here’s the price list.
5. Meet Rapunzel
After you’ve gotten your hair all spiffed up, you should go meet the queen of hair herself, Rapunzel. She’s now greeting guests in Fairytale Garden in Magic Kingdom. You can find her there intermittently throughout the day; check the Times Guide for the exact schedule.

This is another list that you shouldn’t do all in one day, because you want to be able to enjoy that new hairstyle for a while! You could, however, take your kids to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or Harmony Barber Shop, and then go get your own hair done at Ivy Trellis Salon or Mandara Spa, and then head back to Magic Kingdom to meet Rapunzel. That may not be the best use of a day in Walt Disney World, but you could. More likely, you’re wanting a special hairstyle for a special occasion in Walt Disney World, like a wedding or anniversary dinner, or you just realized after looking at your first day’s vacation photos that you really need a haircut! With this list, you now know where to go to remedy that!
