The Mom Diaries: Baby’s First Haircut


I put off getting my baby boy’s haircut for the longest time! Can you relate? It wasn’t really until well after his first birthday that Grey’s hair even started growing in and then my hubs and I decided we were digging his shaggy do. I snipped a few hairs here and there to keep it from getting too out of control but the day recently came when we realized it was time for a real haircut from a proper stylist.IMG_9004At two years old, I could barely get him to sit still for five minutes for dinner, so I feared he’d never sit for a haircut! I finally committed to an appointment and to my surprise, however, he did great and loved his new look.

If you have an antsy babe in need of a trip to the salon, here are a few tips that worked for us. Bring a favorite toy and a snack (something not too messy) and choose a kid-friendly salon. Grey enjoyed wearing a special apron and was so amused watching everyone else in the salon! Smooth snipping!

I’d love to hear about your baby’s first haircut; tell me in the comments below! -Olivia
