Last Sunday, 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. 😀
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 time the barber needed. 😀
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). 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!
From rugged, rocker look:
To the-boy-next-door look: 😀
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 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.
Don’t grow up so fast, baby love. Mum’s not that ready yet. 🙂
Kids really do grow up fast! Bagay yun hair ni Z! He looks more handsome ; )
Thanks! 😁 The boy face came out after his haircut 😁
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 🙂
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
Brave boy Z! 🙂 He looks great mommy. Hope he’s loving his new look… 🙂
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
Yep, he is starting to lose the baby face. 😛 .. Did she cut her bangs? LOL
Thankfully it was the side part! LOL
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!
I wouldn’t know where to start cutting if I did it myself. LOL Thanks!
cute little dapper boy! 🙂
I did the ceremonial haircut too for my son. But now I don’t know where it is! 😮 It’s a good thing there are pictures for evidence! 🙂
Wow 🙂 Very memorable!
yah they really grow fast talaga 🙂 he looks good in his hair
Thanks, Mommy Anna! 🙂
Love the new haircut! na-framed ang face nia lumabas lalo ang kaguwapuhan 🙂
Thanks, Ruth! 🙂
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.
He was behaved for the first few minutes.. pero nung ung bangs na, wala na, umayaw 😀
Ang galing that he was behaved when his hair was being cut. Love the new haircut, I’m sure presko na sya this coming Summer.
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
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… 😊 thanks for dropping by
