The First No-Tears Kid’s Hair Cut

I’ve been letting my son’s hair grow — it was getting in his eyes. A haircut was overdue, but haircuts with a toddler are no fun. There’s crying, crying and more crying. His head jerks from left to right when the scissors get near his head. Forget the clippers.

I started researching hair salons for kids and found one in our area, although a good 30-minute drive from home. It was worth a try, I thought.

This place was awesome. It was colorfully decorated, had a Thomas the Tank Engine train set and video game systems for kids to play while they wait.

Once it was his turn, he got to sit in a mini-firetruck that was raised on a pole. TVs that play DVDs are in front of each chair while the kids get their haircuts.

This combination equaled no tears for us. The 30-minute drive was worth it for us. We’ll definitely be back for the next hair cut, this time before his hair gets in his face.

    I love this place but unfornately it is too expensive. I mean $17 for a haircut is extreme. I wish the were cheaper
