    We're considering getting our 2.5 year old's first haircut. Not sure if it's worth paying to take her to one of the specialist kid salons? Or are the car chairs and TVs just a gimmick? (I can see both of these exciting her far too much to get her to sit still...)

    It depends how much you want off etc I suppose. My mum has been trimming my older daughters hair, especially the fringe, since before she turned one, she has loads of hair! But she has had it done a few times with my hairdresser when it needs a proper cut x

    We just want it evening out. It's much longer at the back with baby curls,. She hasn't got a fringe. Our local salon will do it for £6 or we can travel to a nearby town and pay £16 to sit her in a car in front of a Disney film and get a first haircut certificate. I want to have the cut curls tied into a teeny pony tail to keep in her memory box. She's not big on sitting still. I often have to chase her round the house to put her hair up...

    Ha I know that feeling running around the house. Although harper doesn't like having her hair done and doesn't sit for long both times she's had it done by my hairdresser she's sat surprisingly still and let her do it. I never even thought of taking her to a kids salon but I've only seen one and that was in a soft play cafe x

    I would take her to your regular salon for the first attempt. She may not sit still at either, regardless of the TV etc so save yourself a tenner! My lb had only been to normal salons and was largely ok and then we tried a kids one and he absolutely lost it!

    They'll let you keep a bit of the hair for keep sakes even if you only pay about 4£ for a kids cut...

    I think it honestly depends on your daughter's mood that day.
    You can try to just trim it first on a "normal" saloon without all the movies and toys and see how it goes.
    Maybe take her favourite toy or book to keep her occupied and happy.
    If for some reason it doesn't work then you can try a more expensive option later on and see if it's worth it or not.
