“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, in both Alameda County and Marin County are 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 Oakland and San Rafael Salons offer a sanctuary for parents to relax, regroup and educate themselves on how to prevent lice from reoccurring.

Founder, Melissa Shilliday, set out 11 years ago to create a safe place where families could come to rid themselves of head lice. Melissa knew how it felt when she received the dreaded phone call from her children’s school and how it can turn a home upside down! Her goal has always been to make the process simple and effective while educating parents on the most efficient way to deal with the rest of the house.
