  • I got my son's hair cut around 10 months. I think any time you feel he needs it will be fine, but just know he may look older and less like a baby after it's cut!

  • my son had very fine very light colored hair but it got very long all of a sudden when he was about 5 months old. i began getting him used to the sound of the electric hair trimmer, and then started giving him buzz-cuts. since he was so litlte when i started I think he is used to it. i cut his hair like that about once every two months or so. i never use scissors as he cannot sit still and i don't want to scratch or cut him, and i can do a little buzz then let him play, do a little more- then let him play, etc. as long as i complete the cut in same day- no one sees him looking funny. if i didn't do it like this i would probably pay (an arm and leg) for a pro to do it in a kids specialty salon.
