  • 12 months old. My oldest had his first haircut on the day he turned 1 year old, and my youngest was right around his 1st birthday but not on the actual day itself.

  • around was probably more of a 'clean up' around the ears/neck, or to get little straggles out of his face.

  • I do hair, so I did dds' bangs at 8 months. I let ds's hair grow a bit, but started getting "whats her name " comments, so I cut it a few days before he turned 2.
    I cut the ends of dd's hair when she was 3

  • I was just going to ask this question. My 18 month old needs a haircut but I don't know if she'll sit still. My older daughter didn't need a haircut until she was 2.

  • maybe you can take her to a shop that specializes in kid cuts so they can entertain her

  • My son was 9 months old & he got a mohawk for his first hair cut. he's almost 4 now and sometimes he refuses to get a hair cut unless it can be a mohawk.. lol. My daughter was a year old when she got her first hair cut, but that's just 'cause her hair really didn't grow much the first year. Son was born with a full head of hair & it grows SO fast.

  • My little girl has thick curly hair that grows all over the place so I started trimming her hair when she was a year or so old, when it became too unkempt to brush. My mother had the same problem when I was little
