Alex’s second haircut was much more successful than the first. The first consisted of a little boy who wouldn’t sit still, followed by screams of terror the mili-second the scissors came close to his head, and uneven hair as the finished product. Now I know it’s not an easy task to go to the hairdresser with a toddler, but Alex’s second haircut proved that it’s not an impossible task.
Last Monday at 9 a.m. Alex and I had an appointment at Tablo, a hair cuttery in the city. The hairdresser was so interactive from the minute we arrived – he let Alex push the button to turn on the electric clippers, he gave Alex a brush to hold and he stopped cutting Alex’s hair the second he sensed Alex was upset. The hairdresser always found something to distract Alex from his uneasy feelings of a complete stranger working on his hair. We ended up being there for almost an hour, but it was so much fun, Alex and I wouldn’t have minded staying all day! haha
Once Alex’s haircut was complete, the hairdresser spiked it with a big glob of gel and said that he was ready for a disco. I told the hairdresser we will be back again for his next haircut since it was our first successful tear-free appointment. Kudos to this great hairdresser!
Here’s how it looked from start to finish:
*Did you notice how he went from a cute little toddler to a grown child in only a short matter of time?
