How old was your child/children when they got their first haircut?

My son is 17 months old, and I just wanted an idea of about how old to get his hair cut. He has the cutest curls, but they are making him look a little girly.

  • 3 years old. but i was so heart-broken about her first haircut that i only had them cut one inch LOL. that was my oldest daughter and now i just do it at home, her hair is straight as a board and easy to cut. i think i might cry the day my 2 year old needs a haircut, she has gorgeous ringlets! right now her hair is only just passed shoulder-length, so im hoping i wont have to cross this bridge for a while.

  • Probably 18 months? We took him to a place that specializes in kids, well worth the money - especially since we discovered he hates, and I mean hates, having his hair cut.

  • About 15 months. He too had the greatest curls. I loved them! Don't know why I didn't wait longer now that I think about it. But we have the pics of those curls and it doesn't really matter now that he is 34 years old!

  • Right before his 1st birthday, in time for Thanksgiving. It was cute, but getting in to his eyes.

  • I think my son was somewhere between 6 months and a year when I first cut his hair - I don't remember exactly. It was really long in the back and was lookin' a little weird. I wanted to let it grow but it looked a little silly that way.
