The holiday season is not only the happiest time of the year, but also the busiest time of the year, especially for parents of small children. Between work, family responsibilites and the usual holiday activities it may be difficult to make time for things that you normally do such as nail appointments or even a hair cut for your child. I have two young boys and although they need a trim every few weeks, finding time to take them to the barber or local salon can be stressful and quite frankly, not where I’d like to be spending our precious time.
There is a solution that would work for everyone and that is to do the simple trim and hair cuts at home. It’s not as difficult as you may thing to trim up your little boy’s head of hair. It’s actually quite easy, and if you have the proper tools and a willing child, it won’t take much time at all! I’ve found that getting my kids to sit still for their hair cuts is simple as long as I keep them occupied with something such as their electronic device, the television or even reading a good book. The possibilities are endless with a bit of imagination and effort.
You may be wondering which specific tools are needed for this at-home task. I suggest a sharp pair of hair cutting scissors, a comb, a hair cutting cape (or towel) and of course a reliable pair of hair clippers. Be sure to have everything set up and organized before asking your child to sit down so that when you begin they are already settled and content. I wouldn’t suggest a snack due to the possibility of hair ending up on their delicious treat! Not a good idea.
If your child is really young, there is also another option for tear-free and hassle-free hair cuts. When my oldest son was a toddler I would wait until he was asleep and then carefully cut his hair with my hair clippers. It may sound strange but it worked and he woke up with a fresh hair cut and ready to take a bath to wash off the excess hair. Fortunately, there are hair clippers that are designed for young children, very quiet so not to wake up the baby, and as an added bonus they are waterproof as well.
If you are considering an at-home hair cut be sure to have everything you need on hand. Interested in purchasing waterproof hair clippers? Use this special promotional code and save 50% off of the original price! Awesome! Promo Code: V6ISNUW9 ~ Order HERE!
