This is a story of a boy who hates to get his haircut. Actually, scratch that…this is the story of a boy who has valued his personal space highly, pretty much since 30 seconds after birth.
This boy is my son, Noah.
Noah is 4 years old now, and believe it or not, he actually enjoys getting his hair cut nowadays!
It wasn’t always this way. We got his first haircut when he was about 9 months old.
Here’s his before:
And this? Well this is his “during”:
Needless to say, haircuts pretty much went that way for the next 2 1/2 years of his life. He’s just never been a fan of people intruding on his personal space, he was the same way at the doctor, during diaper changes, you name it!
I know he’s not alone.
Tons of kids hate getting their hair cut. The fear can be different for all of them. For some, they don’t understand that it’s not going to hurt. For others, they just don’t like sitting still for so long.
The truth is, cutting kids hair is not for the weak or unskilled. That’s why, since day 1, we have taken our children to get their hair cut at Cool Cuts 4 Kids.
At Cool Cuts 4 Kids, they “get” kids. They understand that even though getting hair cuts is necessary, it’s not necessarily an enjoyable experience for a rowdy toddler.
