How old was your child when they had their first hair cut?

My 3 year old was only 10 months, he had alot of hair!

I'm going to get NoahMonsters(17 months) hair cut in a few hours. I'm sad, but people keep thinking he looks like a girl! It's reddish blonde and curly, lol. I'll take before and after pics. Will the curls come back?!?

  • She was 1. Her hair is VERY curly and the ends would get matted and such, so I just trimmed the ends. Her hair is very long now, so pretty!

  • 1 month old. And actually he needed his bangs trimmed when he was born because they would get in his eyes. So he was a new born with a comb over!

  • my son was about 16 months for his first haircut... yeah we kept getting asked what HER name was :) he's 19 months now and the curls seem to be growing back, but i have curly hair myself so i'm thinking the poor kid got stuck with my hair

  • we got my sons haircut on his 1st birthday. what a present lol! but he will be 15 months old on the 8 of this months and he has had a total of three all together, his hair grows really fast and it bothers him when he starts growing over his ears, but he is so handsome after he gets it done and he has sat all by himself everytime(but with a sucker in his mouth lol) but im very proud of him, yea the curls should grow back

  • Nate was probably 14+ months and, like Noah, people somehow weirdly kept thinking he was a "she!" Ugh - patently obvious, people!! He had cute sweet adorable little curls in the back, but i think he was just destined to straight hair, because they never came back *sigh*

    I never got Gabe's hair cut...

  • My son was 1 1/2. he turned 2 in Feb and we got his first haircut bout a week before Christmas last year. they had a hard time with him so they did the best they could. i'm sure the curly hair will come back eventually. my FI has really curly hair and when i was 3 i had super curly hair as well. so i know for a fact both my kids will end up with curly hair at some point in their childhood!
