  • Our son was just under 1. (About 10 months if I remember correctly.) My daughter is now 17 months old and has never had her hair cut, we are growing it out.

  • I waited for 2 years to cut my son's hair. I now look back at pictures and he looks like the epitome of white trash lol. I should have done it sooner:(

  • My son was almost a year. I didn't want to cut it but it kept getting in his face and making him sweaty and for some reason his dad wouldnt agree to barettes or bobby pins in his son's hair!

  • all my kids were 1 yr old when they got their first cut. I have all boys and I told my hubby I wanted to wait untill they were 1 to cut their hair. Well it got so long (and when it starts getting length it starts curling) that the day they turned 1 we went to get their hair cut.

  • I was trying to hold off until her first birthday but she got it out 5 months. She had so much hair and my mom talked me into it. She said it would grow faster if I got it trimmed. I haven't cut it since than and now it's really long.

  • I had to give my son his first trim at about 3 months old. His hair was really long when he was born. I guess he was trying to make it up for his balding
