“A Mom’s Best Friend”


Welcome to Nitpixies, the Bay Area’s first full-service lice removal salons that cater to both child and parent. Our kid-friendly environment is designed to keep your child happy and occupied as our technicians remove both lice and nits from their heads.  However, our services do not end there. Our Salons offer a sanctuary for parents to relax, regroup and educate themselves on how to prevent lice from reoccurring.


Co-Founders, Dina Shields and Melissa Shilliday, set out 9 years ago to create a safe place where families could come to rid themselves of head lice. Dina and Melissa knew how it felt when they received the dreaded phone call from their children’s school and how it can turn a home upside down! Their goal has will always be to make the process simple and effective while educating the parents on how to efficiently deal with the rest of the house.
