We (mostly MY decision) waited a while before cutting our guy's hair. He had a bad case of cradle cap early on, so for the first few months of his life our little guy had a bald head. Once his hair grew in - I was thrilled and just let it keep on growing!
Both of his grandmothers offered to cut his hair. I didn't want to have to choose between the two on who would get to do the honors - SO... we turned to the professionals!
Our guy did very well considering the following:
1) No nap
2) It was nearing closing time at the salon - you could tell the staff had their fill of kiddie cuts!
3) He usually flinches when the nurse measures his noggin during check-ups.
Will he cry? Throw a tantrum? You'll have to watch to see!
