Helping Your Toddler at Hair Cut Time

Helping Your Toddler at Hair Cut Time

You are barely two feet tall and you see this tall stranger coming at your head with a pair of ominous looking, shiny, pointy things and he says, "Don't worry, this won't hurt, just stay still." Yeah, right!

A trip to the barber or hairdresser can be quite traumatic for a toddler. Here are some tips that can help you ease your child into it and hopefully make subsequent visits go a whole lot easier.

  • Call different hairdressers and find one with experience cutting childrens hair. Try to avoid new hairdressers. Although the end cut may look good, they tend to take more time getting there. An experienced hairdresser will get the same job done in less time.

  • Go with washed hair. It's easier for your child to be able to just hop up in the chair and get going. They can always use a spritz bottle to dampen the hair.

  • Let your child know that the hair will grow back and that cutting hair doesn't hurt. Snip a piece of your own hair to prove it.

  • Make appointments when your child is most likely to be fed, awake and happy. A tired, hungry child is less likely to sit still.

  • Encourage your child to watch someone else getting their haircut first. Go a few minutes early to the appointment so they can look around a get a little more comfortable with the surroundings.

  • Make it a part of a fun day. Go out for lunch, a haircut and then to a movie or the park.

  • Positive reinforcement. This is my favorite one. "What a big girl!" and "You are such a good boy!" will work wonders. It makes them feel grown up and they tend to concentrate on how well things are going.

  • Hairclipper Sets. After many trips to the hairdresser, I finally chose this route. Even though my children sat well and didn't move or cry at the hairdressers, this way ended up being more fun. My son was quite easy to do as we chose a short boy's haircut, and my daughter just gets a trim, so I can handle that. These can save you money in the long run and you can get your child to help set up for the haircut at home. If you have a sewing machine, you can even have your child go to the fabric store with you and pick out a special fabric to make a cape.

Have fun! Hope some, or all, of these tips help you and your child.
