The Little Blue Jay, a Barbershop for Kids

The company’s vision is to create an upscale boutique experience for families while still providing elements that keep kids entertained. There is undoubtedly a classic barbershop feel to the business, and that’s because the Little Blue Jay traces its roots back to the original family-owned “Blue J Barbershop” in Columbus, Georgia, that served the community for almost 100 years.
