Children's Haircuts

As a parent, your baby’s first haircut can be an anxious experience for both you and your little one. However, with proper planning and preparation, you can transform this potentially stressful moment into a beautiful memory for both of you. It’s natural to feel emotional about saying goodbye to your baby’s luscious locks, but your child may feel overwhelmed by the unfamiliar sounds, sights, and sensations. Don’t allow this to deter you from taking them for their first haircut. With a little bit of preparation, you can make the experience a success.

Children are beautiful beings, making adults fall in love with each and every one of their moves, over and over again. They showcase surprising carelessness when engaged in an unimaginatively difficult task like hanging upside down on a high jungle gym. Yet, such is their nature that they exhibit reluctance over the most mundane of activities, like eating their favourite egg sandwich.

This fickle nature of kids is what makes parenting a heck of a difficult job, as you never know which way the storm is headed. Getting a child ready for a haircut can be one such activity that could swing both ways. For many parents, it is one of the most pleasant activities they can engage in with their child. But for others, it becomes the most nerve-wracking experience involving cajoling, requests, begging, and loads of crying!

Children’s haircuts are an important component of developing a child’s hygiene regime and something that simply cannot be avoided.

Why Fear Haircuts?

No one can say for sure why children develop a fear of visiting the barber, but it is a reality many parents find hard to deal with. In many households, the mere mention of a haircut turns the premises into a warzone, and the ensuing push and pull can last for hours.

Children can become scared of haircuts for a number of reasons, number one among which could be the anxiety of mingling with strangers. Your child’s reluctance could also be a result of something or someone the child perceived as unpleasant while at the barber’s, and the fear of repeating that experience might force the child to put up resistance. On another note, the simple thought of putting yourself in the way of sharp scissors, or the snipping sound they make, could make the child nervous. It could also be a possibility that the child simply loves the way his or her hair looks right now and is not ready yet to let go of this style!

The explanations could go on forever, but the best way of dealing with children’s haircut issues is by having a tender conversation with them. You must never force the child into “obeying” you by heading for a haircut by hook or crook. Instead, try talking to your child beforehand about what makes him dislike the experience. Offer love, affection, and support as he or she tries to explain the reluctance, and more than anything, don’t offer comparisons of how other children walk into the salon undaunted. This would only undermine the child’s fears and make him or her think lowly of themselves.

Haircut? Hooray!

One of the best questions a parent can try finding an answer to is: where can I find a children’s haircut salon near me that helps me help my child overcome his fears? You can start by visiting places like Hakim Elhocine in London, which has a team that is not only concerned about your beauty and appearance but also about your well-being and that of your family.

You can start by having your nervy child visit the place, not for a haircut, but only to get familiar with the faces and activity. You can have a member of the very friendly staff at Hakim Elhocine engage with the child positively and candidly, without mentioning haircuts, of course. The child can soak in the sights and sounds and find contentment in the friendly faces and serene environment on display at Hakim Elhocine.

The staff have years of experience in negotiating with your

And of course, you can always raise the stakes by getting your child their favourite candy or a scoop of ice cream to reinforce the positive experience.

A haircut is a necessary activity that humans have to undertake from time to time throughout their lives. Parents must strive to make this recurring lifelong activity a pleasant experience that the child looks forward to each month. At Hakim Elhocince, we make sure we help you do that.
