Has anyone gotten their baby a haircut? How did you go about it, did you do it yourself or take baby to a salon/barber?

My fella's hair is getting really long and he could use a haircut, but I just can't see how I could get him to sit still for that long. He certainly isn't going to put up with me cutting it, and I'm not sure if he would for a barber, either. I've seen photos of places in the States that have a fancy airplane chair for baby to sit in, but we've nothing like that here in Ireland. His curls are cute but his fringe/bangs are starting to get in his eyes.

Thanks for your advice!

Obligatory christmas photo!

happy christmas

I took my guy for a cut about two months ago. Didnt go to any fancy kids place, just the regular salon where I go to. Most hairdressers have dealt with kids before, and they know to do it quick :-) Mine, who never stands still at home, was pretty good during the cut.

I took my kids to a fancy place a couple of times, but we do most of our quick trims at home. I use their (rounded-tip) craft scissors and snip away while they are distracted by a TV show, snack, or Daddy being silly. Sometimes it takes a few mini-sessions to get a whole trim done, so a clean spray bottle with water in it helps too. We just sweep up with a whisk broom what little hair ends up on the floor when we're done (a little baby powder on their necks afterwards helps get rid of any itchy trimmings stuck there).

I took my son to the barber where his dad gets his hair cut, and they sat him in bf's lap and then cut it that way. It went pretty quick and he wasn't freaked out or anything because he was sitting with Daddy.

Did my sons at home a few months ago.. With electric hair clippers.. he thought it was fun.. And he looked better after the mullet was removed ;)

I trimmed my daughter's bangs when they kept getting in her eyes and just sat her on the counter and had Daddy try to distract her while I did it quickly. They've grown back already!
