Tips To Survive Your Baby's First Haircut — Salons Included!

In this article, I will be sharing tips to help you get through your baby’s first haircut.


Your baby is able to sit upright independently on your lap so it is easy for the stylist to do a good job on your baby's hair.


1. Schedule a cut during a time that works best for your baby.

Avoid scheduling it during nap time, snack time or whenever your baby is fussy.

2. Distract your baby with his favourite toy, pacifier, book or video on mobile or tablet.

Keep your baby’s hands occupied and comfort him.

3. Let your baby watch you get a haircut.

Let your baby get familiar with the salon experience before bringing him for a haircut.

This might help your baby get excited about having his turn someday.

4. Buy your baby a cute barber kit toy.

5. Trim your baby’s hair.

6. Face away from the mirror.

A kid-friendly salon will have plenty of toys, experience and patience cutting your baby’s hair.

Your baby might still get freaked watching a stranger trim around his head.

7. Set aside an afternoon for your baby’s first haircut and be prepared to take a couple of breathers.

8. Bring a spare set of clothes to change.

The cape might not fit your baby or he may refuse to wear it.

9. Give your baby a treat to eat.
