  • I have been wondering the same thing. My son is now 15 months old and his hair is starting to get a little fuzzy :)

  • anytime you want too. Don't believe in old wise tales do you? It is hair.

  • My son got his hair cut last Wednesday (he's 13 months today) I just took him to Walmart and they did a good job on his hair. He sat perfectly still and the lady that did his hair was really good with him. She even gave him a little mohawk that I love, I always put his hair in a mohawk when he was younger.

  • As soon as it needs it.
    Some kids get their first cut before they are 6 months old! It just depends on how long it is and what you can tolerate.

    I do suggest finding someone who cuts children's hair.

  • My oldest is nearly 3 and never had a haircut lol. It wasn't intentional, he only had peach fuzz for almost 18 mos! But since it's so long now, we're going to let it grow until the summer and chop it for locks of love/wigs for kids something like that. Firgure it's all ready over halfway there, may as well let it be cut for a good cause. Baby hasn't had a haircut yet either.

  • And the lovely, perfect curls is why we didn't want to cut it after it grew lol. Figured I may as well answer that before it's asked :-)

  • My son is six and his hair has never been cut (intentional) but it will be soon cuz I'm tired of braiding it for school.

  • Mine got his first hair cut about a month ago - 19 months old. It was just getting WAY out of control. He looks like a little boy now... SO SAD!!!
