Making a Child’s First Haircut a Positive Experience

At these locations, stylists are trained and able to help your child feel more comfortable. To find a children’s hair salon, accessing websites likewww.yellowballoonsm.commay be helpful.
The “firsts” in a child’s life can be very exciting for parents but terrifying for the child themselves. Much like a child’s first dentist appointment, a first haircut may feel very intimidating. There are ways to lighten the stress that your child may feel upon entering a salon for a haircut. Many times, when a child’s hair is long enough for their first haircut, he or she may be at the age where “stranger danger” is at a peak. Even with mom or dad standing right next to them, the child may become very scared when a “stranger” wraps them in a cape, sprays them down with water, and has sharp scissors next to them.
Preparing your child for their first haircut may take a “practice” salon trip at home. Some parenting experts suggest that parents do this before a child’s first trip to the dentist, doctor, or hair salon so that the child is prepared and has an idea of what to expect. Your child will look at it similar to playing “house” and will be eager to play a fun new game. Children’s salons have books, televisions, and even playgrounds that are designed to entertain and make children feel more at ease.
Your child’s first haircut experience will likely determine how the he or she will feel about trips to the salon for years to come, so it’s important to try and make it a positive one.To learn more about what a children’s salon may be able to offer, access a website likewww.yellowballoonsm.com.
