We’ve been wanting Lance to have his haircut since his hair from birth has grown too long. He’s now one year and one month old. I thought having my baby’s first haircut done in a kid salon would be best. I felt both excited and anxious to see what he’d look like after the trim.

The ambiance of the hair salon, the friendliness of the stylist, and the comfort of the seating are all important factors in choosing a hair salon for kids. After some research and reading online reviews, I trust Cuts 4 Tots at Santolan Town Plaza (San Juan) to have it finally done, and here are 4 reasons why we love it here. 🙂

My Baby’s First Haircut at Cuts 4 Tots Hair Salon

1. The colorful space looks like a playroom.

Cuts 4 Tots has an amazing kid-friendly atmosphere. There are regular small chairs for kids and fun little cars with seat belt for babies or younger kids. We walked in with no appointment and didn’t have to wait. This place is great, and my son’s haircut came out great. As a parent, I highly recommend it. 🙂 We’ll certainly return when it’s time for another cut.

2. The hairdresser is familiar with toddler hair care.

Countless of times, my husband had offered to cut our baby’s hair at home. But I disagreed every time he volunteered. It’s best to have a professional to do the job.

Trying to perfect a haircut with really sharp shears in your hand and a child who is kicking, screaming or wiggling is challenging. The hairdresser at Cuts 4 Tots knows how to make small children comfortable and he got it done quickly. Before the cut, I went over some haircut examples in their book and received some personal recommendation from the stylist who gracefully executed the cut we discussed. I’m very pleased with it. ❤️

3. Super Simple Songs videos are playing on TV!

Cuts 4 Tots is a salon specially catered to tots and kids. The environment feels so kid-friendly, and there’s a TV in front of the “car” chair playing Lance’s favorite songs to make him at ease (or least distracted). He watched the videos and this definitely was a plus in making the process less stressful. Love the VIP treatment.

4. There are toys to keep kids stay preoccupied.

While the hairdresser was cutting Lance’s hair, another attendant helped make him calm down and sit still. She played the xylophone and showed toys. She also blew some bubbles! I appreciate the kind and playful gestures very much. My baby boy didn’t feel scared or panicky at all. 🙂 No drama, no sad or crying moment.
