Wanting a better future for her children, Letizia Morosi and her family recently moved to Tampa from Florence, Italy.

She immediately went to work opening up a new business, and later this month, Sharkey's Cuts for Kids will open in Carrollwood.

"This location is very nice," Morosi said. "There are lots of families."

The Connecticut based franchise has locations throughout the United States, and this is the first Tampa Bay area salon.

Sharkey's Cuts offers a child friendly environment where young children and tweens, can get haircuts and updos.

Adults also can get their haircut and styled. While getting their hair cut, young children can sit in a kiddie car, such as a fire truck or Frozen Jeep. For tweens, there is a special lounge area, and there is also an Xbox gaming area.

Birthday parties can be celebrated in the "Glamour/Tween Lounge," where girls can get pampered with a hair styling, mini-cures, and make-up.

Sharkey's Cuts for Kids is located in the Village Center at 13136 N Dale Mabry Hwy. For more information, or to make an appointment, call (813) 442-8069, or visit
