When did your son get his first hair cut?

He wants to do it because he has curly hair and it noticeably growing in uneven, but I want to wait until maybe he's one or older...I dont know why but Im attached to his baby hair and want to wait fro it to be cut KWIM

  • My oldest was almost two. My sil cut it while I was at work, without my permission. I was so mad and upset. We then had to take him somewhere that night because it looked horrible. My second son was also almost two. My mom trimmed his bangs, again, without my permission. We weren't cutting his hair yet because it was curly. I was so scared that the curls would not come back but they did, even after he had a real hair cut. DH and I have now threatened bodily harm on anyone that touches our dd hair with scissors without getting permission, lol.

  • Oh gosh our youngest was almost 18 months before we took him to the hair stylist. I would take him to a child friendly place before I'd let my DH cut it LOL.

  • I would cut it once people start telling you how cute your little girl is...thats what my parents did with my brother

  • my nephew was about 3 months old when he had his first hair cut, but he always had a mop of hair. lol.

    My poor DD still hasn't had more than an 1/8 of an inch trimmed off here and there because it grows so slow (she's 2 1/2 now)

  • I waited tll my boys were 2 1/2 they had curly hair and I loved it :) My daughter will be 6 next month and has never had a haircut, My MIL thinks I should cut it but I refuse. I know if I cut her hair we will lose the beautiful curls, thats what happened to me and i wont do it to my daughter. Besides she loves her long curly hair.
