depends on when they need it :-) My son was 1 (his hair grows really shaggy really fast) my daughter was around 2. It took that long to get long enough to cut lol.

That's exactly the issue with both my boys! The oldest had to wait until he was two before even having enough to cut & the baby is one & getting shaggy.

it depends on how long it is and how fast it grows really. I gave my son his first haircut at about 14 months. I would recomend waiting til it gets a little longer if you want to save some of the hair for the baby book

My eldest son didn't have his first haircut til he was nearly 2 years old! Now at 2 yrs 4 months old He has had 3 haircuts (trims) in total.
But my youngest son had his first hair cut at about 2-3 weeks old! Now at 7months old He has had 6 Haircuts in total! lol! It's amazing how they are so different. =)

My son was 21 months when he got his first cut-- took him to a place that cuts kids hair only-- waited for 20 months for him to GET hair then suddenly he had too much~~ so he got a 'big boy' hair cut-- and already needs another one 6-7 weeks later!!!

I think when ever your child NEEDS one is the best indicator!

I cut my son's at 3 WEEKS because I couldn't take the "mullet" he was born with any longer! He went for his first "professional" cut (Great Clips) at about 3 months.

My daughter is 14 mos and will need to go soon. We did trip one strip that kept falling in her eyes a couple months ago too.

Depends on the amount of hair your lil one has, I started cutting my daughters hair at 6 months 'cause she was born with a massive amount of hair (talk about heart burn). The first time I took her to the hair dresser was at age 14 months.

whenever the child's hair is too long. My first got his at 12 months, my second is 18 months and hasn't had one yet because his hair grew in much more slowly.

id say simply when they need it, chose a quiet one and use the same person if poss, my boy knows his hrdressers name she gives him sweets, chats, distracts well, we had to pin him down the first few times now he just gets on with it, we make sure he helps pay says bye has quick chat not just in n out

We gave our son his 1st @ 15 months.He could have had one way earlier..We kinda got attatched to the little curls that grew off the end.But eventually had to trim it so it wouldn't be in his eyes.So he needs another haircut now,and it was only a month and a half ago he had his 1st!!!

I gave my daughter her first hair cut when she was 12 months and again when she was 14 months it get thicker and grows faster. I would have done it sooner but her hair hasn't grown very fast.
