  • My oldest daughter had her bangs trimmed by me at 2 1/2 but didn't have a real haircut until she was almost 5 I think.
    My son got his first cut at 16 months.
    My middle daughter didn't get her hair cut at all until she was 4 (she's never had bangs so I had nothing to trim).
    My middle daughter got her first cut before she turned 3 and has had her hair cut 2 other times since then. She's 3 1/2 and likes her hair short.

  • Well I'm a hairdresser, so I do my kids hair myself, my dd I cut her bangs at 8 months(tho' I wish I hadn't ) and the bottom trimmed a month after she turned 3. Now I do her bangs every 3 weeks or so, and the bottom as needed, about every 3-4 months, unless we decide to do something different.
    For ds, is funny. Before I had a boy, I said I'd never let him have long hair. lol Then, he got the cutest curls!!! So he had chin lenght curly hair, but then everyone kept asking me what "HER" name that meant time to cut!! I did it a week before he turned 2. What a change!!! It took me a few days to get used to it, but I love it short now, and do his hair about every 3 weeks.

  • My DS got his first haircut when he was 9 months old. We were having trouble keeping it out of his face and irritating him, so we trimmed it . My DD was probably around 18 months old, her hair breaks very easily and then frizzes, so we keep it short to cut down on rubber band use.

  • My son got his at 16 months, at which point he desperately needed one. My daughter is 5 months and would have needed one 4 months ago if she was a boy, lol. :)

  • My oldest son was 9 yrs old.
    My middle son was 6 yrs old.
    My youngest son was 5 yrs old.
    My daughter (who's 2) gets her bangs cut, but that's it so far.
