Why come to Bugg Heads?

We use only the safest non toxic products on you and your children verses harsh over the counter or prescription medications. Lice have built up an immunity to these harsh treatments and they only kill the adult lice not the nits. We have had many clients come in frustrated because the lice keep coming back after trying to treat it at home. All of our technicians are trained in the Shepard Institute technique of strand by strand removal of lice and nits without the use of pesticides. This is the only sure way to get rid of lice.


what we do

We are certified head lice removal experts! All natural lice removal salon for adults and children.

Professional Service

There are many variations of lice, but we have the right tools to rid you free of the itch.

Head Check

We start by combing your hair to do a quick check. Your hair is grasped in faux ponytail or if short, we will work it in sections. We then pull the hair down in paper thin layers working towards the top of the head. We are examining the hair and scalp for any evidence of headlice. If there is evidence we will stop the check and proceed with a treatment. Without evidence we will comb the hair with our specialized lice removal combs and apply a detering product.

Removal Process

We first comb your hair free of tangles and protect your eyes. We start our comb out procedure starting at the nape of your neck working all the way to the top, Combing thoroughly until no more evidence is combed out. Then we section your hair and begin our process, removing any evidence of lice. After the last section is finished we remove all clips and blow dry the hair. Rechecking one last time on dry hair. After checking is complete we again protect your eyes and apply additional treatment product. A final comb-out and then your hair is tied back if possible or washed as normal.


We start off by combing your hair free of tangles then we comb with our specialized lice comb paying attention to the hot spots. We remove any lice, nits and or eggs if found. If we find any bugs we will apply additional product if necessary.
