The exciting and dreaded first haircut.
What is a good age, where do you take them, how do you get them to sit still.
I love my child to death but his ability, like most children's, to sit still is almost nonexistent. So when I decided he needed a haircut and I couldn't put it off anymore I looked into where I would take him. I really wanted somewhere not very expensive, where we wouldn't have to wait long, the stylist would be patient enough to work with a child and I could be a crazy 1st time mom and take a bunch of pictures.
After looking up on-line reviews and info on places in my area I found Pigtails and Crewcuts. They are a chain and located in many states. The prices were a bit higher than I wanted to spend on my child's haircut but I took into consideration time and frustration at any other place and decided a little more money would probably be worth my sanity. Boy was I right.
You can tell this place is kid friendly as soon as you walk in the door. The "Chairs" are fire trucks, police cars, taxi cabs and airplanes. They have a play table for children in the waiting area. They offer birthday parties and each stylist station is equipped with a TV/DVD player and video games for the kids to play/watch while they get their hair cut.
Cole was so excited to sit in the police car and watch the DVD I picked for him from the DVD library. We're talking everything from Nickelodeon and Disney to Veggie Tales.
