Hair cut gone bad ...

Does your kiddo fear haircuts? Mine does! He will scream and wail and yell like as if the hairdresser is going to murder him with her scissors! Serious!

Everytime I take him to have a haircut, I feel so embarassed. Everybody else in the salon would stop and look as if we are "torturing" our kid! Aiyoh so paiseh I tell you.

This round was no different. He wailed and yelled and screamed so much that we really could not keep him in place. I had to "force" him by holding his head with my 2 hands while my mom held his body in place. Still he moved so much .. and ended up with an almost botak spot on his head! Ugly! I would have wanted a shorter look even, but he just wont sit still and cry until all his crocodile tears and yucky stuff flowing out of his nose .. like ... like ... yucks!



And we have to repeat this cycle every 2 months .. headache. Girls so nice .. can keep long hair if she hates the hairdressers .. but boy .. how??

Maybe give him a book or a toy during his hair cut to distract his attention...

yah, give him something to distract him.... something new to him, my boy lastime also like that, the uncle give him sweet somemore ...

Another think i guess... kids will prefer and not scared if they try not to used shaver , cos the sound is scary .

No worry, when they grow older, they understand & praise him !! after a hair cut, say he look so handsome !!!! ...... :)

don worry, when ur boy grow older he will "LOVE" to go for hair cut, just like my boys, now almost every week also tell me want to go for hair cut. Last time when i bring them for hair cut also a torture for me, cry till the roof nearly fell off!

Darren hates hair cut too...I have been cutting his hair myself since he was one year plus (I think). Until recently, he is more willing to accept proper hair cut in saloon. (coz he always hear daddy said going for cut hair), then he has his first official hair cut at saloon after so long.

Mine hates my haircut. He prefers the hairdresser's cut so that settles it. lol. He goes to the hair salon alone with daddy so that gives them some male bonding time and he feels extra special and grown up then to be able to have a haircut just like daddy unlike mummy's very unprofessional cut. :P
