Baby’s First Haircut

Your baby’s first haircut is a big deal, so you’ll want to make it a memorable event. It’s nice when the salon can offer a special chair — such as one in the shape of a car — or offers a balloon or lollipop as a treat. Some will even save a lock of hair for your scrapbook! Just ask.

Some parents get their kid’s haircut right away, while others wait as long as possible before trimming their baby’s hair. It’s a very personal decision.

Some kids may be afraid of the experience, so you want a place that puts them at ease, makes it feel like fun, and hopefully keeps their tears to a minimum.

Remember: haircuts for kids take less time than for adults, so you’ll easily be able to take care of them while running errands or after school.

Kids’ Haircuts FAQs

Q: When should I get my child’s first haircut?
A: The timing for a first haircut varies from child to child, but it’s typically between 6 months and 2 years of age. Some parents choose to wait until their child has a full head of hair before cutting it, while others may want to trim hair that’s getting in their child’s eyes or becoming tangled.

Q: How should I prepare my child for their first haircut?
A: It’s important to talk to your child about what will happen during their haircut and make sure they’re comfortable with the idea. You can also try practicing with a pretend haircut using a toy or a doll. Consider bringing along a favorite toy or book to help keep your child distracted and calm during the haircut.

Q: How do I choose a good salon or barber for my child’s haircut?
A: Look for a salon or barber that has experience working with children and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Read reviews and ask other parents for recommendations. It’s also important to make sure the salon or barber follows proper hygiene and safety protocols.

Q: How should I communicate with the stylist or barber about my child’s haircut?
A: It’s helpful to bring a photo of the haircut you want or be able to describe it in detail. Be clear about what you want, but also be open to the stylist or barber’s suggestions based on your child’s hair type and texture. It’s also important to communicate any special needs or requests, such as a need for extra patience or sensitivity.

Q: How can I make sure my child is safe during their haircut?
A: Stay with your child throughout the haircut to provide comfort and reassurance. Make sure the stylist or barber uses clean tools and follows proper safety protocols, such as using a clean cape and sanitizing scissors and combs between clients.

Q: How can I maintain my child’s haircut between appointments?
A: Regular at-home trims can help keep your child’s hair looking neat and prevent split ends. Use sharp scissors designed for hair cutting, and trim small amounts at a time. Consider using a detangling spray or leave-in conditioner to keep hair smooth and manageable.
