Cutting a Toddlers Hair


Any tips on how to cut my one year olds fine hair? It's getting a bit long for a boy. What scissors should I get? Do they make blunt tipped hair scissors? How do I get him to sit still? Where should I cut? I don't want to mess up his first hair cut. Should I just take him somewhere since I'm completely clueless? What sort of salon should I look for? How in the world do I get him to sit still for them?

I was a cosmetologist for a decade, so I speak from experience: take the little guy to a salon where there are stylists who are very familiar with cutting little people's hair. You will not have to keep him still if you do this, as they will be used to keeping up with squirmy little people. Whenever you see someone with a child with a really nice haircut ask where they got it, that is the easiest way to get a referral. (07/14/2007)

I usually give mine a lollipop and let her watch tv. She loves getting her haircut now...haha. Good luck! Also, if you do it yourself, start longer than what you want, so you have plenty of room to straighten out mistakes...But I have to also agree with the Kids Kuts recommendation. I have take mine there as well and they really enjoy it.

Buzz cuts. Also to keep my son interested, I'd give him my jewelry box. I made sure he didn't put anything in his mouth of course, but he loved all the shiny stuff and it kept him busy. Still, if you can't cut it yourself, take him to a place for kids. (01/13/2008)

Any suggestions on cutting a little girls hair? From what I have read, it's all been about little boys. My daughter is 2 years old and is in desperate need of a hair cut. I was cutting her bangs for a while, but I'm actually in need of something more professional. I've heard that pixie cuts on little girls are adorable, but I'm hesitant. Any suggestions? (05/15/2008)

Take them to the hairdressers. So many toddlers have odd looking haircuts from their parents! (06/08/2008)
