I don’t know where to get a baby boy’s hair cut. I know, it’s shocking, me being MOTY and all. He has alot of hair, and we get alot of “compliments” on it. I put that in quotes because sometimes I’m not sure. It is quite shiny and lustrous, but when it gets too long and the cow-lick takes over it looks like a bad Donald Trump do. You know how people say things like, “Wow, so much hair for a baby!”. And they sound truly shocked. I know, I used to say it too. When what I meant was, “Please, for the baby’s sake, get your kid a haircut!”. Now, it’s also important to note that I am not all sentimental about the cutting of the hair. I don’t think it’s right when little boys walk around with curly hair flipping everywhere, or baby mullets, because their moms have on rose-colored glasses and don’t want to admit that it’s time. Those poor kids look like silly, like poorly dressed girls. So because I feel that way, Blake got his first haircut at 10 months, as soon as it started flipping out. But it grows really fast!! He’s needed one about every 4 weeks since then! I was taking him to the lady who does my hair. She did a fantastic job, but they charge $20! A little ridiculous, I thought. But look how cute his first haircut turned out:
I went back one more time after this one, but this time (today) I decided to go to a good ‘ol fashioned barber that a friend recommended. I mean, how hard can it be, right? This is what he got:
He asked me if this was ok and I almost said, “Yes, in 1950!”. I calmly said it was fine and paid them man. BTW, it was $12, but since the shop (apparently still operating in 1950) doesn’t take credit cards and I had to pull cash at an ATM with a $3 fee, this haircut still cost me $15! Hello! I would have said something, but I really don’t think he would have known what to do. The only equipment I saw anywhere was a ginormous pair of scissors. But, hey, I saved $5!! Who cares that if my kid set foot on a playground he might get beat up. Ok, I’m exaggerating. And I know it grows fast, but his 1st birthday is this week. All those pictures! Was this really the week to save 5 bucks?! Can anyone help me? I’m thinking about trying to trim it up how I learned to do my own bangs (kind of cutting into them to stagger the length), so his bangs won’t be mistaken for a straight-edge. But that just sounds like another disaster. Poor kid could end up with a hair-cut like his daddy’s. I’m glad he’s not old enough to care.
