Kara’s first haircut

Kara's First Haircut

I swear, it was just yesterday that I was posting about Evan’s first haircut, and here I am, writing about this milestone again, with my little Kara.

I do plan to let Kara’s hair grow long, however, the girl definitely needed a trim!

Because Kara sleeps on her belly (and rubs her head and hair into her mattress), her bangs were really damaged. Luckily, my mom is a hair stylist, so she was able to give Kara her first trim at home.

Kara tolerated her first haircut pretty well — up to a point!

By about halfway through the process, she started getting a bit irritated, and then the screaming started.

I still feel really fortunate that we can go through this milestone at home, something tells me that she would have had an even bigger meltdown at the salon!

Yes, I did get a little choked up seeing that messy baby-hair suddenly take on a big girl shape.

Kara is 15-months-old, by the way. How old was your little one at their first haircut, and, did you cry?
