1. Prepare Your Child
Why not start a conversation a few days before your appointment? This will allow your children the chance to ask questions and at the same time,give you the opportunity to calm their nerves.
Be sure to choose your words carefully: For example, you might tell your child they are going to get a 'style' or 'trim' instead of a “cut."
2. Build Excitement
Talk to your child about how much fun they'll have at the appointment. Let them know you're looking forward to their ' trim ' or new ' style '. When they see that you're looking forward to the experience, they will too.
3. Pick the Right Time
Best haircut experiences happen when children are rested and well fed. If children are cranky, anxious or tired, the haircut should wait. Often, mornings are the best for toddlers haircuts as they are rested and ready for fun.
4. Bring a Photo
Bring a picture of the hairstyle you'd like. Best haircuts occur when we can see the style you'd like. We also have a "look-book" for your convenience. Spend some time looking at the styles. You're sure to find one you like. For Girls we ask Moms to bring at lease one hair slide to complete the look after their trim.
5. Be Prepared
Have your child bring a favourite, small toy or snack. These items can help your child stay calm and keep his/her hands occupied.
We also offer healthy snack options for sale.
