Saturday marked a big milestone for Harry, his first haircut! I have been wanting to get his haircut for months but Ant's refused. No joke, his "baby style icon" is Mason Disick (Kourtney Kardashian's son) and wants Harry to have the same long, shaggy hair he does (see a photo of him here). I think that look is adorable on little boys, but Harry just doesn't have enough hair to pull it off yet. His hair is very fine still and was all different lengths - the hair at the nape of his neck just started growing in.
It took some convincing, but I finally got Ant to agree that it would be best to get Harry's hair cut. I always knew we would take Harry to Kid Snips for his first cut, they have a location in Wheaton that I've known about for years. Their South Barrington location is closer to us, so we drove up there Saturday afternoon feeling a bit nervous about how Harry would react to the whole thing.
I honestly can't say enough good things abut our experience at Kid Snips. The staff were all helpful and friendly, something I always judge when visiting a new store. As soon as we checked in the receptionist had us pick out a movie to turn on for Harry. The store has a huge selection of DVDs and even Wii games for older kids.
After picking out a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse DVD we made our way over to the police car station and his stylist, Amy, got him ready for the cut.
One last picture of his shaggy mop top!
Amy was absolutely wonderful with Harry. She knew just how to give a wiggly one year old a haircut-- she was always one step ahead of his wiggles, it was awesome!
Harry did really well and wasn't phased by the hair cut at all. He loved flirting with Amy and watching all the other kids running around the store. I don't think he even realized what was happening to his hair. Here's the finished product.
He looks so handsome! When we paid for the haircut we were given a balloon and a cute certificate commemorating this momentous occasion.
Surprisingly, Ant loves his haircut, too. I thought he'd be indifferent to it since he really didn't want to do it in the first place but he agreed with me that the new 'do suits Harry very well.
Whenever it's time for Harry's next haircut we'll definitely be visiting Kid Snips again!
