DIY Haircut for Juan Or

Last time when Juan Or was still with the babysitter lady, she would normally take Juan Or to a neighbour hairdresser lady (in Sri Petaling) who charged RM5 for kid's haircut. Now that Juan Or is no longer with the babysitter, and daycare centres don't go to the extent of sending your child for haircut, Mommy decided that Mommy will cut his hair instead. So Mommy referred to this practical blog, Almost Frugal, for the how-to.

The first time Mommy cut Juan Or's hair was on Chinese New Year Eve, January 2012, at the in-laws' house. Because Mommy was the one doing the cutting, Mommy couldn't take any photos of the process then. But here was the end result.

Here's another pose!

Fast forward to 2 months later, Juan Or needed another haircut, but Mommy just couldn't find the time to cut his hair because Mommy would normally reach home late from work and weekends mean that certain priority housework needs to be done first before our weekend outings. On top of it all, Papa always wants to start going out early for our outings to avoid road jams and confusions. All these don't leave much time for Mommy to cut Juan Or's hair. Cutting hair in the in-laws' house is also no-no for Mommy because MIL would uninvitingly add her comments here and there as Mommy does the snipping, and not to mention, Juan Or would act fretful (e.g. wants his neck to be dusted with powder again within very short intervals) whenever the grandparents are around. So what's the next best move? Ask Papa to cut Juan Or's hair instead! ^_^

Here's the process......snip, snip, snip left!

Snip, snip, snip right!

Snip, snip, snip from the front!

Snip, snip, snip near the ear! The only problem with cutting this boy's hair is that he kept on moving his head, such that there were occasions of nearly snipping his skin, otherwise is the snip went a little too much.

Ta-dah, this is the end result!

Looks like Mr. Coconut Head, right? Something like the kind of hairstyle whereby you use a halved coconut shell, put over the head and then snip away all the hair that comes out from the coconut shell! ^_^

Hahaha, both my kids never attended any saloon before :p Yup, they have their 'home-barber' and it's hard to cut their hair because they move a lot.

Hey, the haircut is not bad~

I am so opposite, I never ever touch my daughters' hair since they were babies. I brought them to saloon from baby till now.
