So one Saturday we ventured to a kids hair salon to get it done. I knew I would need Brian's help. One parent to hold Mason and one to take pictures. Duh! Luckily Mason had gotten a hair cut gift certificate to a cute kids place - Snip Its- for the "First Hair Cut Experience Package".
Upon entering we knew there was no way Mason would sit in the chair by himself. We tried but it turned ugly fast. Thank goodness for Daddy being a good sport and willing to hold his boy for his hair cut. I, on the other hand, came armed with goodies. If you know anything about Mason it is that he can be bribed with food. So once the tears came, out came a cereal bar. And guess what.. it worked.
Oh, the tears...
Cereal bars make everything better...
Mason did great the rest of the time and the stylist, Candice, was so nice. She gave Mason a great haircut and was super patient with him.
The package included a photo as well as a certificate and of course, a few pieces of his hair. These items have been placed in his memory box!
The after pictures... Mullet be gone. Doesn't he look like a little boy now?! When did he get so big???
Did your child cry during their first haircut or is mine the only one? How long did you wait until you first cut their hair? (Mason was 16 months old!)
