>> 2.06.2013 – Luke
Look at that sweet face. He did not like getting "spritzed" with the water bottle.
Tip to other mamas who plan to take their littles for a first haircut: Take your iPhone/iPad/other electronic device to distract your little one and keep his chin down while the hairdresser cuts. And take your mom, because only she will understand just how special this little moment really is. :)
I initially told our stylist I just wanted her to trim Luke's bangs so they weren't constantly in his eyes. She responded, "Okay, but you know that's going to give him a mullet. I'm okay with it if that's the look you're going for." Of course I didn't want my precious baby to even be associated with a mullet, so I cringed and told her to "cut it evenly all the way around."
I'm so glad I trusted Jessie's expertise. Luke got a great first haircut, kept most of his curls and looks even cuter than he did before! (I know, I didn't think it was possible either!)
Local friends: If you're looking for a great first haircut place, check out Eden Salon & Spa in Portsmouth. Your little one's first haircut is totally *free* and the staff is so kind, especially if you're a sappy mama like me. Thanks to Jessie (our stylist) for such a great experience!
