The Last First Haircut

Claire has needed a haircut for some time. But, we've had less than stellar success with haircuts in Beijing, and I didn't want her first one to be a total disaster. So, we waited. And waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, while we were visiting civilization for several weeks this summer, we got it done.

Our friends directed us to this FABULOUS kids hair cuttery complete with video games, themed chairs, individual and personalized movie screens, balloons, and, of course, the obligatory "you were so well-behaved, or maybe you weren't, but either way you get a treat for getting your hair cut" lollipop. We purchased the first haircut package (they had one! -- it included a certificate, picture, and keepsake lock of hair!), popped the pacifier in her mouth, and plopped our curious, but skeptical, child in a Lightning McQueen chair. They had a princess chair too, but she was adamant she sit in the "car cars" chair. She was very good. Or, she was just completely mesmerized by the movie playing in front of her. Either way, she didn't move, the cut was quick and painless, and the results are exactly what we were hoping for.

Before.
During.
Almost there.
After.
Success! She already needs a trim. But, this time I'm armed with a photo of what I want (thanks to the aforementioned package we bought) and the, likely misplaced, confidence that even our local "stylists" can manage just a trim. Fingers crossed.
