A little special someone got his hair cut for the first time! He didn’t cry at all. Actually, no one did, but Mal and I definitely had one of those omg-our-baby-is-growing-up-so-fast moments.
Related: Quinn’s forehead band-aid is not related to his haircut. He actually took a terrible tumble just minutes before we left the house to get his hair cut. He didn’t seem to mind the band-aid (and it made him look tough), so we just kept it on for his haircut. (Ceiling fans are SO COOL.)
A friend suggested Snip-Its for Quinn’s first hair cut, and I can’t recommend it enough. (There’s one at The Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham for the locals.) We had such a great experience and definitely plan to go back for his next hair cut.
Everyone was so nice and there were all sorts of fun things to play with. I took a bunch of photos while we waited, so we’d have record/memories of Quinn’s sweet baby hair.
When it was time for Quinn’s hair cut, he wasn’t super psyched about being strapped into the chair, but there were plenty of toys and things to distract him. Once “Dada” was blowing bubbles at him, he was happy as can be!
Our little man. Doesn’t he look so grown up here?
I asked the stylist to leave Quinn’s hair a little on the long side because a lot of people warned me that once we got his hair cut, he would look different/like a little boy, and I guess I wasn’t fully ready for that big change. Well, she did an amazing job (not too short!) and somehow Quinn looks even more adorable.
Baby fauxhawk? Too cute!
And with Quinn’s first hair cut, he received a special certificate with a lock of his hair attached. How cute is that?
After Quinn’s hair cut, we celebrated at Rustic Kitchen. Cheers!
