Ruby’s first haircut…. so exciting! I don’t know if it’s just me that gets overly thrilled about having our kids’ first haircut. Does everyone get the same feeling too? Perhaps it’s a female thing, going to the hairdresser and having a new look is somehow rather appealing. I suppose being a mother, our little ones’ first time experience won’t fail to overwhelm us, don’t we?
Ruby haven’t tried having haircut ever since she was a baby. When she was born, she had relatively thick hair but gradually fallen off as she grows until she was partly bald at age 1. That’s why I just didn’t bother have her hair trimmed then. As her hair gets longer, the cute baby curls in her hair made me fell in love with and it’s a shame to get rid off it as it suits her perfectly whether her hair is down or tied back.
Few days before she turned 3, I told myself that Ruby’s hair finally needed some pampering, although her hair is long but it’s very thin. And even though I love its little curls, but I know it has to go. Hopefully, having it trimmed would make it appear voluminous despite of its naturally fine texture.
I braved myself and booked her for a haircut at our nearby hairdresser. Beforehand, I kept telling her about it so she would feel the excitement too and be less scared or worried. Actually, I have booked it the day before her 3rd birthday… I would like to think it would be more memorable for her as well!
It was a nice sunny day, her dad was away to work, so I dragged Reimer with us too to the hairdresser. It was only a 10 minutes walk from home and when we arrived, she’s very quiet and was observing the place. I have chosen a morning appointment because I thought it’s less busier. Ruby stood beside me and patiently waited for her turn. I could pay a penny for her thoughts that time to satisfy my curiosity.
So when it was her turn, the hairdresser took a wee chair for her to sit in and made her comfortable. I’ve told the hairdresser it’s her first time, so she cut a little hair from her for me to keep which was so nice of her. Ruby sat in the salon chair so quietly and listens to the hairdresser’s instruction, no fuss whatsoever even with cold water sprayed on her hair didn’t bother her at all. Her hair was cut at shoulder length which I think is ideal. I was really surprised as I thought she would be difficult to deal with but I’m totally wrong. I’m so pleased with her.
After the haircut, I asked her if she liked her new hair and she nodded…. Silence means yes I guess! The hairdresser was very impressed how she behaved considering it’s her first time. I’m so proud of her, she’s full of confidence and courage.
I think it’s safe to say that Ruby loves visiting hairdressers and trying new hairstyle too. She definitely is a lovely lady in the making. I must admit, I can’t get my eyes off her with her new look, she’s an adorable little flower!
