My Daughter’s First Hair Cut

Share this post:

Last weekend I finally decided to get my daughter’s hair cut. I have been putting it off for a while now – just so it can grow (and that I could style it). However, with it being in her eyes and watching her blow it out of her face, I knew it was time to get her first hair cut!

Before the cut!

You could say I’m one of those moms – so excited/makes a big deal about the first hair cut. I’m not sure what it is, but the first hair cut is a big deal for me. Maybe cause it’s my first child and that she is a girl. So yes, I was the mom who walks into the hair salon with my SLR Camera + gear to capture the moment of my daughter’s first hair cut. It was a milestone I had to document for me and her- I just had to get some great shots of her experiencing her first hair cut! As most moms probably know, most kids aren’t fond with strangers touching their hair. Now as you can imagine, my daughter wasn’t too keen about it either. It started off well, but once those scissors got near her she wasn’t a happy bug. (At least the hair cut latest a whole 20 seconds!) Here is how it went!

  8. I find it so great that we can now save such memories forever.
    She looks really cute with her new hairstyle.

  9. I hope the tears stop at the next cut. Mine still opens up the water works for every cut. Still, it’s so cute to see their first haircut. Time goes by too fast!

  10. I don’t think I captured any of my kids’ first haircut on camera. How sweet!

  11. Hopefully the next one will be better. She is adorable.
