  • I'd call the salon and see what they think. If you really don't care then just bring him- I'd over pack though making sure you have more than eneough for him to do.

  • Will he sit next you in his stroller while you're getting your hair done? That's what I used to do with my kids, but they didn't mind sitting quietly in a stroller for 30 or 40 minutes; I understand not all kids are like that. That's really the only option I can think of aside from a sitter.

  • I wouldn't. My 2 year old doesn't sit still for anything and there's no way I'd be able to take him anywhere without being able to tend to him. If you think he'd sit there (some kids do! lucky parents lol) then go for it but if you think he's going to be into everything I think it might cause some problems with the salon.

  • I can't but my kids won't sit still or stay out of anything at all. I usually end up getting my hair done when DH is home. I don't get to go when I want but these days I'm just grateful for that time whenever it happens to be.

  • I definitely wouldn't take him.. I would cancel my hair appt until i can find a sitter.,

  • Most salon's do NOT want young children in their salon - there is too much they can get into if the are loose.

    Do you have a Playdate drop in day care in your area?? The salon that I frequent is right next door to one of our playdates and they have an arraignment with them.

  • I have brought my child with me. Depending on where you go, they might have stuff for him to play with in a childrens area.
