Pretty No More


I brought CE for his second haircut yesterday. The front is almost touching his eyes already. And it's really high time for a cut as the hairdresser asked me if I just wanted a trim, to leave the hair long. Huh? She's mistaken him to be a girl!

He wasn't as cooperative as during his first haircut. He didn't like being 'wrapped' up in a plastic cloth. He wanted his hands to be out. I brought some cornflakes and raisins to distract him. He was okay at the beginning. After cutting halfway (the lady was using the shaver), he started to fuss and didn't stay still. He wasn't interested in the food anymore. So I had to carry him while the lady continued her work. He buried his face on my shoulder while the lady cut the back. And when she wanted to cut his side, he kept turning here and there. I tried to hug him tight to minimise his movement but it wasn't really working. Anyway, she managed to finish the side. As I was carrying him, I've got hair all over my face, neck, hands and t-shirt. For his front, she used scissors and snipped off quite a lot. Now he's got very short hair. I like to stroke the back of his head... very spiky. PaPa said he looks like a samseng now. hahaha

I'm not sure why he's not as cooperative as last time (just 3 months ago). Maybe he didn't like the shaver. But he was still fussing when she used the scissors for the front. Or maybe he likes the Indian barber better. Or he's just a little older now to be wary of strangers, especially one who has a shaver or scissors in hand. I'll probably try the Indian barber again the next time.

that haircut looks quite good though he's moving around.. I think it's because he's older now and more mobile :-)

Know what you mean, it's hard for our little one(s) to sit still... for a haircut especially... but I'll be wary too of anyone yielding a pair of scissors at me!;p

I like how your boy's haircut turned out =)

slavemom said...

Jacelyn, next time I just get a coconut shell n start snipping. Save the trouble of bringing him to the barber. hahaha

bp, after a week, it's more soothing to the eyes edi. :D
