Does Your Toddler HATE Getting his Hair Cut?

My almost 3 yo hates it. Most of the time he cries through the whole thing. I've tried various stylists, lately I have been taking him to one that has videos, special chairs (airplanes, etc.), toys - and he still cries. He talks about getting it done, and is happy until they start cutting. Once we're done he's back to his normal happy self.

My SIL said her son was the same way, and he just eventually outgrew it when he was around 4.

  • My Son is nearly 3 1/2 and has always hated getting His hair cut. I hope He outgrows it soon, cause it is no fun having a screaming Kiddo fighting you the whole time you're trying to make Him look less shaggy. lol.

  • He's only had 1 (due for another) but he did okay. He just didn't like sititng still for the most part, and the buzzing of the clippers by his ears kind of annoyed him but who can blame him?
