  • My oldest boy was two and a half. Second boy was three weeks before he turned two...he got a mohawk to match his older brother. Youngest boy hasn't had one yet at 15 months. They are all getting mohawks for summer on June 5th, the day after school gets out.

  • 1 year old. He loved it. He was eating boudin and crackers in a high chair. Could have cared less he was getting his hair cut.

  • I have a girl... her first cut as a few days ago at 33 months. I wanted the ragged ends trimmed so it would snarl less after swim class.

  • We have only trimmed her bangs so far. We did that at about 13 months, but she needs another trim. Her bangs are VERY long and she won't keep clips or hairbands in her hair, so if we don't trim it, it ends up in her eyes. I won't cut the back until she is three or four probably. Or when she tells me she wants it done.

  • My son was almost 1. My daughter, I had only trimmed her bangs by the time she was 3. But my son (who is only 17 months older), saw my giving the dog a haircut & took my scissors off the table & proceeded to give his sister a haircut. I ran my fingers through her hair & curls were coming out in my hands. It took months to have it look right again.
