As with all new experiences his first haircut experience requires preparation. As a parent/guardian you should prepare yourself and your child. Prepare as sometimes the experience evokes fears and tears – from adults. Yep. And children as well, but if you are ready he is more likely to be as well.
Getting him ready for his first cut:
Each boy is unique, some arrived in this world with flowing manes, and some as clean as a bald eagle. We advise bringing your little prince in for his first haircut as early as 4 months and as late as 2 years. His temperament with doing new things is the key thing to pay attention in gauging his readiness for his first haircut. Remember this is the beginning of a lifelong journey of haircuts.

- Ready for take off – Hair on the sides start looking like wings
- Rocking a mic – Hair has grown into a big afro
- Isn’t she cute??! – Once you hear it, you know it’s time to cut his hair.
