We have been cutting Grayson and Ryder’s hair for a while now. We were afraid to cut Xayden’s curls as we had heard that they may be gone forever. I took all four of the Sugar Snaps with me to get Ryder and Grasyon’s hair cut. Xayden started to say “Xayden’s turn” from his seat in the stroller and I felt bad that I did not have my camera as I document all first haircuts. I also was unsure as to whether I was ready to take the plunge. I spoke with the hair stylist who assured me that he would not lose his curls as they were curly right next to the root, a sign that they are here to stay. I booked an appointment with her in a couple of days and ventured out with just Xayden and my camera as it was Greg’s day off.
Xayden contemplated his curls in the mirror
then watched intently as they fell to the floor.
In the end, he seemed pleased with the results and charmed by his stylist.
I love the way the sunlight captured his new smaller curls.
I was so relieved when his curls bounced right back after his haircut. They reappear each time we wash his hair. At least for now, his curls are here to stay. What are your experiences with first haircuts? I’d love to hear from you. As always, comments are welcome.
