You’re a Mummy not a Hairdresser…

I just read a funny post over on a new blog I’ve just stumbled over on Twitter (threelittlebees) about a self-styled toddler haircut, with his brothers scissors.

I know quite a few children who have given themselves amazing haircuts with craft scissors. None of them however, have been quite as awesome as the haircut that I managed to give RJ when he was a baby…

Let me set the scene. Your super cute, curly locked baby keeps rubbing his eyes. You realise it’s his fringe – it’s gotten long enough to be tickling them. You think, I should take him to the hairdressers. Then you think, but it’s bothering him right now, why not just trim that little bit? How hard can it be?


You have been warned.

  1. Hee hee. My youngest has hair that grows at a superhuman speed. Seriously, we return from the hairdressers looking like he needs a haircut. I think it would be cheaper for me to train as a hairdresser to keep on top of it! Thanks for linking up to #FridayFrolics

  2. Ahahahahhahahahha!! Brilliant! I did exactly the same to my daughter once. I kept trying to straighten it up and it got shorter and shorter! He still looked super cute though. Isn’t a too short, wonky fringe almost a right of passage for a child anyway? Thanks so much for linking up to the first ever #bigpinklink

  3. Haha! It took all the willpower I had not to give my toddler his first haircut with my own fair hand. In the end, the only thing that stopped me was lack of acceptable hairdressing scissors in the house. I finally took him to the hairdresser on Saturday to get it cut and am so glad I did! #bigpinklink

  4. Oh bless we’ve just done this recently! Well, I say “we”… I did a few fringe trims very successfully. My other half had a go last week. Poor SB has the most lopsided fringe I’ve ever seen! Hehe great post #bestandworst

  5. Lol oopsy! I haven’t actually done this but my mum has to both me (when I was younger) and my daughter. You’d think she’d have the learnt the first time but nope. My daughter has very curly hair that should only ever be touched by a professional. Suffice to say I wasn’t happy!


  6. My mum tried to cut my hair once when I was a kid, but it was so thick and she made such a mess of it that she decided it was worth it to pay for a proper haircut! #stayclassy

  7. HAHAH I still remember trying to cut my sons hair when he was a baby and it was so bad that I ended up at the hairdressers sobbing my heart out begging them to fix it! Never again! #stayclassy

  8. I must admit I ma guilty of giving my children a few home trims over the years though they never turn out well lol #stayclassy

  9. Haha! It’s ok, hair grows. I’m a hairdresser and always stress to mums that they can pop in anytime for a fringe trim for their little ones. It’s harder than it looks to cut hair! Lol! Xx
