Head Lice Removal Salons

Many parents and childcare workers are not ready to deal with this infestation and are slowly turning away the old traditional lice  treatment methods (such as wet combing, topical pediculicides, and oral therapy) and embracing new professional lice treatment services.

Head lice’s increasing resistance to pyrethrin is one reason the number of lice removal salons increase yearly. With 6-12 million infected children every year, the entire market for lice salons and lice removal services is now around $4 billion.

Arrival of the Lice Salon

Recently many lice removal services such as head lice salons offering public treatment emerged all over the country.
This services are mostly situated in middle-upper-class neighborhoods and split into two main categories:
Head lice salons – establishments similar to ordinary salons, with the difference that they only eliminate head lice.
Head lice home services – less commonly found, these services make visits and help people remove head lice in the comfort of their own homes.


The most significant advantage of these professional services is that it’s almost sure you’ll be lice-free by the end of the treatment process. The only downside is the price you pay for it. Rates aren’t fixed and vary depending on the specific part of the country you live in. However, the average price for these services is about $100 per hour. Treatment services can cost a few hundred dollars per child and thousands of dollars for a full infested family. Some services assure you to eliminate all the bugs in one single visit. However, the majority of them recommend additional visits to complete the treatment.

Treatment Method

The specific treatment process of each lice salon varies, but they all do roughly the same thing. These treatment services typically defeat an infestation in one session by using a combination of products and techniques, such as lice-killing shampoo, creams, heated air, specialized fine-toothed combing, and nitpicking.

Once in a Licetime (California), The Nit-Picker (New England), Lice Happens (Washington), Head Hunters (Atlanta), No Lice Left Behind (Los Angeles) are just some of the many lice salons currently in operation.

Lice charmers was fantastic. Both Alexis and Connor were so helpful, kind, and professional. The visit was quick, easy, inexpensive, and most importantly -...
Helpful, professional, and reliable. So grateful for this service!
Love the attention to detail and how well she worked. My kiddo enjoyed the attention she received. Just an awesome group. Can’t say enough good stuff.
If you ever have lice go to Lice Charmers! Emily was awesome. We had already done a treatment at home but weren't sure we got everything out of our daughter's head. She found 3 bugs that we either missed or that had hatched since the home... treatment. She was extremely thorough. Highly recommend!!read more
Emily was so helpful. Made me feel right at ease and made me smile throughout the process. This is a service you hope not to have to use often but if in fact I get another case of head lice, they’d be the first to call. Great communication.... Responded quickly to my request etc. Thank you again! Will be sure to tell others about them.read more
Everything was super easy and everyone was so helpful. Would highly recommend this place!
Lice Charmers did a great job removing all lice and left us with an action plan. Best money spent to give our family a peace of mind. Quick, efficient and personable.
Emily was fantastic! She was very personable and made us feel comfortable. Service was thorough and really gave me peace of mind. Definitely recommend this place if you ever have to deal with those nasty little bugs!
Fluid experience from start to finish. Lots of tips and good experience while getting treatment. My 14 year old actually had an enjoyable experience and thought the person was “really sweet.” . Highly recommend Lice Charmers!
Emily was awesome and was able to rid my daughter of all the lice. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped me know what to do to clean out the house!Thanks Emily and Lice Charmers!
Great, friendly service and exactly what we needed to get peace of mind we were rid of all the lice. Tried home treatment first, but she still caught a few of the nits we missed and did a a thorough check of everyone in the family. Totally worth it!
Alexis was fantastic. She was super patient with our daughter, who had a pretty nasty infestation. She also was very good at explaining to and educating us about these nasty little insects.
We tried lice treatments from the store but couldn't seem to get rid of it completely and it just kept coming back. Finally I called them for lice removal and that seems to have done the job. Thanks Lice Charmers!
We were visiting friends while out of town, literally across the country when we found lice in my hair. I panicked of course and my sweet husband calmly googled and found Lice Charmers. We called and Conor was so sweet and empathetic and was able to... get me in that very day. We met Lex at the office and she was so unbelievably nice. She calmed our (my) anxiety, we had great conversation and the appointment took about an hour, which was much quicker than we expected considering I have long and thick hair. This was pain free, relaxing and honestly not as big of a deal and I thought it was going to be.This service was well worth the money we spent. Thank you!read more
This was our first head lice experience with our child. Lex, and Lice Charmers came the same day we called and quickly helped reassure us that once she left we would all be lice free. I particularly appreciated the 30 day guarantee. Lice Charmers... willingness to help guide us on best practices for what we needed to take care of in our home to ensure we wouldn't be reinfected was also such a help. Thanks so much Lice Charmers!read more
