Z’s First Haircut

Last Sunday,ย Z finally had his first haircut. I haven’t had his hair cut since he was born so for the past few months, we had his hair clipped or tied it back to keep it off his face.

I was really hesitant to have his hair cut because I just love the texture of his hair. He’s got a very fine straight hair that curls at the end. It was actually pretty. ๐Ÿ˜€

that's how long his hair was...

But after several months of my family asking me when will I have his hair cut, I gave in and last Sunday, as part of our weekly day out, I brought him to Kwentong Barbero in SM Baguio. There were a lot of people having their kids get haircuts, too. I guess they are all preparing for a short hairdo for the summer. There were about a few people waiting for their turn and instead of taking a seat to wait, Z and I went out and checked out the car display at the Atrium (which was just outside of the shop). Nothing much to see there so I decided to get back in the shop and wait for our turn.

Not even seated for 5 minutes, it was Z’s turn to sit at the barber’s chair. They didn’t have those car seats where the kids can play and all that, rather, they had a box placed on top of the barber’s chair which acts as a booster seat.

I was more nervous than Z, too. LOL! I dunno, I just didn’t want all that pretty hair gone from my baby’s head. I know, I know, it’s just hair. It will grow back. Fine.

So there goes my baby, seated on the chair and I had to stand beside him to hold him in place. He was relatively still during the first five minutes, which was just about the timeย the barber needed. ๐Ÿ˜€

Since it was his first haircut, I asked the barber to cut a portion for me to keep. He handed me a pair of scissors and told me to cut whichever part I wanted. So, I cut a portion from the back. (I don’t have a photo of it yet, though).ย Then the barber proceeded to cut that hair away. And because Z couldn’t keep still in his seat (I think he was trying to find where the sound of the razor was coming from), the barber sang and hummed a lullaby to which Z kept still. Well, until another boy, two seats away, cried when they started cutting his hair. LOL!

When we got home and we were done with dinner, I watched my son play with his toys on the floor and it just hit me. With his short hair, his features were emphasized in a way that he no longer resembles a baby. My ย son is 18.5 months old and he is now starting to look like the toddler that he is. Not a little baby anymore. Where had the time gone by? It flew by so fast and I haven’t totally noticed that my son has grown so much in this last few months. I need to pay more attention else I might miss out on a lot.

  1. love how he handled his first haircut like a pro! my twins are 2 years old and have never had a haircut, but they’re girls so we luckily we don’t get “questioned” about it, he he. But I suspect I’d also get sentimental when they finally get their first haircut ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Funny thing was even if my son was wearing boy clothes, people still assume he’s a girl just because of his hair. There’s no confusion now. LOL

  2. He looks like a big boy now! My daughter haven’t had a haircut ever since! Except for that one time when she cut a portion of her hair when I was at work. LOL

  3. The first haircut of my kids were always done by me. But it sure looks better being done by a professional.Your kid is so cute!

  4. Ui buti pa your baby so behaved! So pogi afterward! The first several times my son had his hair cut, parang giyera. This morning, he had another, and he was a lot more behaved na.

  5. I don’t know if its really traditional or folklore that we get our kid’s first haircut when they turn one year old…same is true with our little boy as soon as he hit the one year old mark he had his first barber’s cut at the neighborhood barber shop when his dad gets his hair done too. How cute..thanks for sharing. -MacySantos

    1. Thanks, Macy. I don’t really know the story behind hair cutting after 1. For me, I jus didn’t want to cut my little boy’s hair because he looked so cute with long hair… ๐Ÿ˜Š thanks for dropping by
