Anyway, I got them all dressed up (since I knew I'd be taking photos) and went to a child haircare specialty salon called Snip Snaps in Stamford, CT, which has cute car shaped seats, TVs, music, etc. all to distract young children from the scissors. I had brought my iPad just in case I had to entertain them further, however, none of that was needed. They were perfect albeit wary at first. They definitely liked the cars and held on tight to the fake steering wheels as soon as they were buckled in.
I also chose a morning appointment during the week so that it would be less crowded and we ended up being the only ones there.
The salon gave me a little certificate to mark their first haricut and a baggy with a clipping of their hair. You might want to bring a tiny ziplock bag if you'd like a lock from their first hair cut too.
Trust me, you're better off paying a little more or driving further to find a salon geared to children only. We later went to a regular hair studio and it was a nightmare - stressful for everyone. Look how much fun they are having at a kids salon though:
|Logan: Sweet, about time I get my own ride.|
|Ben: I don't care what you're doing to my head,|
just want to drive this car.
|You doing OK bro?|
|Yup, all good over here!|
