Nadette and Robert always wanted to start a successful business that delivered a great experience and gave back to the community, so in 2019 they decided to join the Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids family. As parents themselves, they loved that Sharkey’s focuses on giving kids and parents a fun, memorable haircut experience at a great value.

Robert grew up in Brooklyn before moving to San Diego. He's the Director of User Experience for ComplianceMetrix after being a design leader for almost 30 years at companies such as Intuit, Illumina and Proflowers.com. He enjoys bike riding and runs a local fan club of over 500 NY Jets fans.

Nadette grew up in Connecticut and lived in Hawaii before coming to San Diego. She’s a Nurse Informaticist with Kaiser Permanente and faculty at UCSD’s Lactation Program. She’s been an RN for almost 20 years. She's performed Hula, danced and taught salsa around the country.


Nadette and Robert have 2 children. Teah and Tiana, and they attend school here in Poway. The family enjoys doing many things together, including hitching up their travel trailer and camping in Southern California’s deserts and mountains.

Oceanside and Poway are 2 of over 70 Sharkey's Cuts for Kids all over the country. How did it all begin? When Linda and Scott Sharkey took their kids to get haircuts in those uninviting, unexciting salons, they always felt there should be something better.​


So they set out to create a unique salon that caters to children of all ages. A place that is prompt for those on-the-go parents, fun and entertaining for their children, and reasonably priced for their wallets. Hence – Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids was born October 1, 2002.

The first salon was a huge success, and in 2004 they opened their second and third stores. The requests for franchises started to accelerate within months, and in 2005 the first Sharkey’s franchise was sold in the US.

Sharkey's Cuts for Kids remains the fastest growing children’s hair salon franchise and an Award Winning Kids Hair Salon Franchise – 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021!
