Tear -Free Trims

A child's first haircut can be a scary experience. Try these tips for a tear- free trims.

  • Find a salon with able stylists who are trained to coax kids.
  • Choose a salon that caters to kids. Whimsical chairs and toys will make the experience more enticing.
  • Bring your child to meet the stylist at least once before the big day. Take her with you when you have your hair cut.
  • Sit your child on your lap and let the stylist work around you.
  • If your tot is too terrified to sit through a professional haircut, do it yourself. Use blunt-tipped scissors and dampen the hair with spray bottle. If you only get in a few snips, that's OK; offer lots of praise and try again another day.
