At 16 months, we finally decided Gavin was old enough and his hair was long enough for his very 1st haircut! We researched the local hair salons and decided on Snip-its in Chandler, an entertaining and interactive fun place for kids to get their hair cut by real professionals. Mommy didn’t want to attempt cutting Gavin’s hair in fear he’d end up looking like he cut his own hair. We were a little afraid that Gavin wouldn’t cooperate at the salon, and he’d end up being sent home with only half of a new hair-do. But to our surprise, Gavin was very good and only had a brief 30 second meltdown.
Gavin’s hair was cut by Juan Carlos, a real perfectionist. He made sure that Gavin was happy the whole time by enticing him with lollipops, animal crackers, bubbles, computer games and cartoons.
Mommy and Daddy watched and instructed Juan Carlos, who made great efforts to please us. We were super happy with the final result. Gavin was given a toy and sticker for being a good boy, and Mommy and Daddy were given a lock of Gavin’s baby hair. Gavin looks so adorable in his new hair-do. Well, he always looks adorable to Mommy and Daddy, but now he looks extra handsome. We hope you all agree. Take a look at some of the pictures from Gavin’s very 1st haircut ever!
