After much deliberation, we finally took Parker for his first haircut yesterday. With Tet and his 1st birthday coming up, Tuan and I want his hair situation under control. At the recommendation of my friend Christina, we took him to Pigtails & Crewcuts at Liberty Station. We arrived right when they opened to avoid having to wait (they don't take appointments and I have been told that the wait can get long later in the day). I love how the salon is decorated with its bright walls and great natural light. Each station is outfitted with a little car or airplane that the kids can sit in. I love that it was very clean and they use baby safe hair products. Our stylist Laura was really nice and patient with Parker. He was so distracted by the steering wheel on the airplane that he did not fuss at all during his haircut. And yes, we were those obnoxious people who showed up with a big camera and snapped away the whole time. I'm sure it happens all the time because Laura didn't seem to care at all. We paid for the First Haircut Package which comes with a photo and lock of hair in a keepsake card. Total cost was $25.00 but we received $4 off with a coupon from The Bump magazine. We will definitely be back when it's time for another haircut. Thanks to Laura & the staff for making Parker's first haircut a fun and untraumatizing experience!
