My son recently had his very first haircut at 14 months. It was bitter sweet. His “poof” of hair has always made me smile and secretly reminds me of a Muppet.
This was Jack a few days before his first haircut-
My little James Dean…man that is one good looking kid. AAAAAAAAnyway…his hair was a mess. Longer on top than it was anywhere else and I couldn’t deny it for another minute…he basically had a combover to cover the short sides. It was time friends. I looked all over Pinterest for ideas and found these cuties:
I was nervous about his first cut because I didn’t want him to look too different and it is kind of a “big boy” thing and I’m in denial that he’s growing up. I remember how taking my daughter in felt but she was SO much older and actually enjoyed it. My son is so different…scissors next to his head make me nervous, this kid is a magnet for disaster. But it had to be done!
That is the face he gave the entire time. Mr. Grumpy Gills was so over it but he did well sitting on Daddy’s lap. Our stylist was quick and just took some of the length off the top and trimmed up the sides. No earth shattering change to make my handsome boy look TOO grown up. Here’s the after picture which was taking from my cell phone because I SUCK
Watch out ladies! I’m so glad we decided to get his hair cut. I am shocked at how fast it is growing (way faster than my daughters curly hair)…looks like I may need to make another appointment SOON. If your little one is gearing up for his or her first haircut, check out our tips HERE!
