A Post About A Little Girl’s First Haircut

There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead.

And then to smarten her up for her first day of school, her mum went and had it all chopped off.

Roo has been asking for a haircut for months, and the last time my hairdresser came round to tidy up my barnet, and lecture me on the amount of time I leave the bleach on it for, she also did Roo’s first proper haircut.  Doing a little trim here and there after a hairwash to cut off the split ends doesn’t count, and I’d never have the balls to chop off more than an inch or so at a time.

A few days before, she asked me if her hair was going to turn brown after it had been cut off, like in Tangled, which I thought was rather sweet.

I didn’t keep a lock of her hair, though; I thought, being four, it was a little late for that. Instead, I threw her hair trimmings out into the garden for birds to find and make nests with.

How old was your little person when they had their first haircut? Were they nervous? Were you?

  1. Awww that is so so sweet about her hair turning brown. I have 4 boys so they were much younger than 4 although at 4 is when they usually want to grow it.
    Very pretty. Hope she’s enjoying school if she’s lucky enough to have started yet.

  2. My son is 5 and not keen on having his haircut. He’s never had a proper barbers or hairdressers cut, but I’ve been known to get the scissors out when he’s asleep.

    1. I was thinking about your comment this morning, and it occured to me that I would have no idea what to ask for in a hairdressers for my son. He has such wild flowing locks. I think he’d look odd with short hair.

  3. Awh, what beautiful blonde hair! I agree, so sweet that she thought it would turn brown as it did in Tangled.
    I have a confession to make….I love cutting my children’s hair, and do it ALL the time!I took both my girls for a professional cut in summer, I was itching the whole time to do get the scissors off her. I was a bit miffed she did a better job than me tho ;)
