Tips for Your Child's First Haircut


Taking a young child for their first haircut doesn't have to be a stressful experience. Following are some tips to ensure it is an enjoyable experience for you and your child:



  • Bring your child along to a sibling's or a parent's haircut beforehand so they can get familiar with the process.

  • Avoid saying haircut to your child as the word "cut" may evoke fear of pain. Instead, call it a hair trim.

  • Visit the salon at a time of day that works best for your child. Obviously, it doesn't make sense to go right before naptime when your child may be fussy.

  • Ask for a stylist who works well with children.

  • Bring your child's favorite snack, a new book or something special that is typically forbidden like a lollipop to keep them occupied.

  • Don't forget your camera! Also, bring a long an envelope or baggie to collect a lock of hair as a memento.


From February 2nd to the 15th, you can get your child a haircut and give hope to another. For two weeks, Fantastic Sams throughout the metro area will donate a dollar from every kids' haircut to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
