How old were your children when they got their first hair cut?

My son is 13 months old, and my SO wants him to get a hair cut, but to me it's not long enough yet. What do you think?

  • My boys were both about one year. They were born with hair though, so theirs was longer by one year. My daughter is 17 months and we aren't getting it cut yet.

  • my son was 10 months, his hair was crazy, some parts were hanging past his ear, while other parts werent evn barely spiking, so we just gave him a trim.

  • I gave our oldest his first hair cut at around 6 months old. Our second is 13 months and hasn't had a haircut yet. His hair is thinner and shorter than his big brother's was.

  • My son is two months past his second birthday. He has yet to be shorn. His hair does make me look like one of those parents who want to give thei kid a "unique" haircut, though. His has natually grown in as a mullet. He'll be getting his first cut on or close to his third birthday.

  • My daughter got her first hair cut at 3 months. She was born with a full head of hair and it just never stopped growing.

  • We did a little trim for one of my boys around 8 months. The first really cut was around 20 months.

  • My son is just over 2 and has never had a haircut. He doesn't have enough to cover his head, let alone cut it.

  • DS#1~11 mths, almost 12mths. He was very shaggy and I couldnt stand it anymore LOL.
    DS#2~He was over 2 because he doesnt grow hair very quickly and it took a long time for him to have any to even trim.
    DS#3~He was a year. He grows hair like my oldest does...very fast!
