The trio's 1st haircuts!

It was time for Xander's first cut, and even though I have said all along I would not be cutting the girls hair we went ahead and had theirs cut too. It went so much better than I thought it would, it was actually a lot of fun for all of us. We took them out to a place in Lake Oswego that is all about kids, their whole shop is full of toys and games, even their barber chairs were cars. The kids get to pick a movie and at each station their is a little TV and their movie plays while they get their hair cut. Our chill go with the flow boy was probably the worst, he started to cry a little and kept asking to get down, after trying his video, some toys, the stylist asked if he could have a sucker. This was his first taste of a sucker and it did the trick, though he was still not holding still perfectly. We didn't go super short with his hair, just cleaned it up and got it out of his eyes. Hayden, who we thought would be awful since she won't let us even put a pony in her hair, was actually very very good. We didn't take a whole lot off her hair, just had them make it more even. Miss Lily did the best, she was excited to get in the car, then sat there perfectly watching her video. We went really short with her, she got a cute little bob, it does make her hair look fuller and it should now grow in better than it was. The staff was really awesome, the kids got certificates and little bits of their hair to take home. It's a little bit of a drive from our house and $16 per cut but the place was really worth it...I have a feeling we will be going back :)

A little wrestling around this morning.
Then baths, gotta have clean hair for the stylist. Oh and can you tell they love brushing :)

We were really impressed with the salon. The trio loved playing with all the toys while they waited their turn.
Xan the Fireman!
Hayden and Lily gone wild in the jeep!
Hayden just got called for her turn LOL.

Xander and Hayden went first...he got to sit in the Cars car.

His 1st sucker...helped a lot.

He looks like such a big boy now. His haircut makes him look even more like his cousin Tyler, I need to dig up some pics of both boys so y'all can see just how wild the resemblance is.

Hayden with clips in her hair, we couldn't believe how she just sat there, she did so good!

Lily Bug was so would think she gets haircuts all the time.
Some after pics...look how short Lily's hair is...eekkkk!
Their certificates!

I haven't gotten our trio's hair cut either (they're almost 2 and have long curly hair). Glad it went pretty well for you.

I have a do you put the pink and blue bit on your pictures to block out what needs to be blocked out?

I use the paint section of photoshop, but I think even free sites like photobucket have a little editing area where you can do it too.

I have seriously been looking for a place to get Olivia's hair cut and this place looks awesome! Not too far from my house either :). Poor kiddo has business in the front and a party in the back...

Thanks guys!

You should give them a try, we really had fun...even stayed and played another 20 min after the cuts were done. Lily had a mullet going on too, that's why we had to go so short with the bob. It's short but looks a ton better.

Stopping by from M&M...congrats on your feature! :)

I am taking our girls (18 months old) to my hairdresser, since we don't have a kid-oriented studio here. She does the certificates for their first cut, too. I think that's such a great idea. I had to have Baby A's hair cut when she was a couple of days shy of 9 months old! She was born with a mop, and the top half never fell out...she had this huge comb-over! HA! I think she's had 5 cuts now, and her sister, 2.

I would love to be able to grow our girls' hair out, but I think we're going with a bob (or working towards it) until they're a little older. If I just had one baby, I think I could manage a ponytail or barrettes...but with two, they pull the barrettes out of each other's hair almost immediately! HA!

And congrats again on Baby #4! Best of luck to you!
