View Full Version : Getting your hair cut
I know this must seem like a stupid question. But I was wondering what happens to your baby's while you get your at the hairdressers. Can they come in with you? What happens if they chuck a tantrum? or do you have to get someone to watch your bub for you?
I have to admit I just didn't get my hair cut until Vallerie was old enough to leave with DH for a couple of hours. She was probably a year-ish old.
I just don't go, though I badly needed a trim and I just got hubby to do it...
I'm a hairdresser and we get mummies with babies all the time, just let them know when you make the appoointment that your bringing a baby cause they'll book you out for more time!! :D
that helps heaps. Im in bad need of a cut
I am really lucky. One of the girls in my Mothers Group is a hairdresser and now operates from home. I go to her place and we just relax and care for both babies while my hair gets done. :)
My hairdresser has set up her business now from home, so there's no problem bringing DD with me. If she's having a grizzly day, then I leave her with my mum and use my hair appt as 'me time', plus then I get to catch up on all the gossip mags too!! Z :)
My old hairdresser was a friend of mine and worked form home so our kids played and we got pretty - well I did!!
Now I just take both girls with me for haircuts, nails, pedicures, waxing - everything. I always let them know that I may have the kids with me and ask if they have room for my pram. If they say no I find somewhere else. Most places are fine but do appreciate the notice that you will have bub with you. I have had my haircut while bub as fed, sat on my lap, sat in the pram, been held by all the other hairdressers because "OMG she is so cute, can I have a hold" or DD2 has even crawled around the salon while I had it done - Ok so the owner has a bub 1 month older and they were together but still very handy!!
Another vote for a home hairdresser. (Although I have not had a hair cut in aaaaages)
I have always taken my dd to the hairdressers. None of them have kids but were really happy to have dd around. I am also blessed with a pretty well behaved child. If I see her heading for mischief I only have to tell her no and why not and shes happy as, plus the staff distract her bit too;)
Give it a go - what have you got to lose:devil6:
I go on thursday nights while Dh can watch the munchkins for me..... I take them if I'm desperate though & keep Cj stocked with food & toys....
When I had dd I took her with me when she was 6 weeks and she slept most of the time in the car capsule in the hairdressers. This time 'round I'm letting my hair grow so not having that problem;)
I am a fitzroy salon owner and well before i had my boy we always welcomed parents to bring their kids, as long as they would still have a relaxing time, i didn't bother us one bit. It just made all the girls clucky-not hard to do! I agree that you should let the hairdresser know, so they can move any thing hazardous and bring a toy a rusk and coloring in book the the older ones. In a perfect would no one would ever miss out on a good haircut and colour!
I am lucky that one of my best friends is a hairdresser, so I just take bubs with me to her house and get my hair done. I have only taken DD to a hairdresser once when she was tiny and that was still a struggle once she woke up.
I'm lucky enough to have met a lady in my baby group that used to be a hairdresser :smiliedance: She comes to my house to cut my hair :D
I have always taken my daughters with me when they were little - got very good at rocking a pram with a foot while having hair cut or coloured! Now that they are older and mobile I normally leave with them with DH or if I am desperate and he is away I pay a babysitter. It gives me 2 - 3 hours of "me" time which is quite delightful every few weeks!
A hair cut occurs every 6-8weeks for me.
Up until Max was about 6mths old i took him with me, now he stays with Dp or the nanny..:thumbsup:
I have always taken K with me. He sits quite happily in his pram with a few toys and his water cup.
He is also quite the charmer :rolleyes: and will chat to anyone within 10 metres. Little old ladies just love chatting to him, so that keeps him occupied too.
