My Maggie is 28 months old and her hair is growing like crazy! It’s funny to think that when she was born she was practically bald and now she’s got a blonde moptop full of hair! The latest topic of discussion in our house is when a child should get their first haircut.
Maggie’s never had one! There are differing opinions in our house. (And no, I’m not telling you what I think..just yet!)
Just like any toddler, it’s tough keeping in a barrette or bow, so trying to keep the hair out of her face that way isn’t always an option. Her hair is finally long enough to tuck behind her ears, so typically that’s what I do. I don’t think she needs a full haircut, just trimming up around her face and some bangs in the front.
While I was researching for this post, I noticed articles mentioning how parents should have their child’s hair cut soon after turning a year old! Really?! I believe in the “to each his own” method, in doing what I think is right for my child and family and not listening to what others have to say..but this whole haircut thing has me stumped. Am I behind or right on schedule?
Tell me your tips? When did your little one have their first haircut?!
