Yesterday was a rough day for me. I pulled a muscle in my back and in an unrelated incident, a pair of leopard print shoes ate both my heels (Nike Air technology, my arse), forcing me to cancel my airbrushing appointment and other errands, sigh.

I scheduled Big Bub's first official haircut at the new children's boutique/hair salon, My Little Sunshine, and since it's just 'round the corner we hobbled over and watched how a real hairstylist does it:

In addition to children's haircuts, the Chelsea shop carries baby and children's clothing, accessories, toys and gifts from brands such as aden + anias, Oeuf, Jellycat, Splendid, Imps & Elfs, Bear Feet, and Trumpet.

Don't worry, we checked their creds and everything's kosher:

Bub really held it together and looks super cute with his new 'do. My advice for a painless first haircut experience?

  • Find a shop/stylist that specializes in children's cuts
  • Schedule the appointment for first thing in the morning or after nap time so that you present a well-rested client
  • Bring snacks/treats as a bribe reward
  • Step back before you leave to evaluate the cut so that adjustments can be made on the spot.
