I waited until my daughter was almost THREE before I did this…

hair twoMy youngest daughter Luna will be three in October right before Halloween. How have almost three years gone by already??!! I can’t even believe this at all! She is going to start going to school in a week Β (eeeek!) and because of this, I decided that I would cut her hair. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! Yahhhh, I haven’t cut my daughter’s hair once since she was born. Her hair is pretty fine and it’s not like she looks like Disney’s Rapunzel or anything, but the truth is, she was starting to get a little Billy Ray Cyrus circa 1992. Yes, she was getting a mullet or a tail, both of which are NOT a cute look on a two year old girl.

So I took both her and her older sister to get haircuts before school starts next week. My oldest Lily has an above her shoulders bob because her hair on2hair is fine too and she can better manage a shorter do, plus she loves it. With Luna, I could barely stomach cutting anything, so I really only cut the mullet part off. You can’t even tell she got a hair cut. I know, I’m lame! lol

Maybe because I know this is my last one and I want her to stay a baby. Maybe I am a silly mom. I don’t know, but I wanted to burst into tears when Luna was sitting in the chair. This week, the first haircut, next week, the first day of school…next, it will be college and then a wedding. Waaaaaaaa. Why does time have to go so fast??!!

At what age did you take your kid for their first hair cut? Anyone wait longer than me? πŸ™‚

  • I went really early to cut my son’s hair – the week of his first birthday. he was getting only slightly mullet-y and i refused to be that boy mom that “won’t cut his curls.” Nope! A small haircut later he was so cute! πŸ™‚

  • Cindy says:

    For some reason, cutting my kids hair wasn’t real emotional for me. It might be because they were both born with a head full of dark hair, so by 18 months I was tired of the mess and got it trimmed. I definitely took pictures though!

      My first sons haircut was at 6 Months old he had a headful of hair. It was fun and exciting . My second sons haircut was when he was one it was finally time. He sat so still, it was emotional I took so many pictures that day. My daughter is 2 and I haven’t cut her hair yet I have been told to trim it and told not to trim it her hair is semi long but also very fine I don’t want to ruin her hair.

  • Erica says:

    My son’s hair grew so fast he had to have his first cut at 9 months old!

  • Christine says:

    How in the world is it possible to wait that long to cut her hair? Kinsley was a disheveled mess by 1.5…her first haircut. LOL! And, PS, your kids are so cute.

    First Birthday! He too was getting a mullet! Just seemed like the perfect time. Lily & Luna look precious!

  • Julie says:

    My daughter was 5 when she got her first haircut. She wanted to donate to Locks of Love. It was so long that even after the donation, she still had shoulder-length hair.

  • Michele says:

    I trimmed my daughters hair slightly before she started Kindergarten. Her hair was long and blonde. I only trimmed the ends to keep it healthy. Now my son on the other hand, I started trimming the sides short and do funky stuff with the hair on top of his hair when he was about 1. I liked to try different styles with him. My daughter did eventually get her hair cut above her shoulders and she pulled out a picture recently and mentioned how much she hated that hair cut!

  • Wendy says:

    I trimmed my oldest daughters hair when she was two, my middle daughter is almost 14 and has never cut her hair, and my neither has my youngest daughter who is almost 7. Just can’t make myself do it.

  • Brittany says:

    My son will be two in November and I still haven’t cut it. I am TOTALLLYYYY that mom who won’t cut her sons curls. But he looks so cute! He occasionally gets mistaken for a girl because he has very “pretty features” as a well. But I just say all of us ladies are jealous of these gorgeous curls. I know I sure am! He looks like Annie or curly sue but now he’s starting to look like a surfer boy. I think it’s about that time finally but I’ll do the same as you. Just cut a tiny of the surfer boy and still leave all of the curly sue! At least you have a girl so the long hair is slightly more acceptable!

    My daughter was 3 when I went to cut her first haircut at that moment she was in a Kinder garden school student. I was so much EXCITED about her. She was looking so cute & beautiful after cut her hair. That moment I still remember that was pleased to us. it was emotional I took so many pictures that day. My daughter is 2 and I haven’t cut her hair yet I have been told to trim it and told not to trim it her hair is semi long but also very fine I don’t want to ruin her hair.My mom also excited to see her when I cut her first hair cut.
