First visit to the Hair Salon

Bubbles went for her first professional hair (fringe) trim over the weekend. The whole affair was so quick that we hardly got any shots taken!

As usual, when taken to any new environment, Bubbles spent the wait time looking intently at EVERYONE, and stared especially long at a customer who had her head wrapped up in foil.

When it came to her turn, the hairstylist small-talked to Bubbles and showed her a comb. I then discreetly handed her a baby biscuit to give to Bubbles. Bubbles hesitated and only took the biscuit from her with some encouragement from me. But she surprisingly didn't eat a bite of it! After that, it was snip, snip, snip (I think only 3-4 times?!) and we were done. Bubbles turned her head this way and that throughout so I have no idea how the hairstylist did it!

And so my baby was very pleased after that and sat there smiling at everyone. She then charmed the socks off the one remaining customer and the 3 sisters who run the salon by offering her biscuit to them.

Bubbles is generous in sharing food, eh? ;)

wow - such a pleasant experience. I'm sure you're the envy of many mums.

She doesn't even need to give me a biscuit to charm the socks out of me. ;)

Only when she feels comfortable to do so :)

I was genuinely surprised and was prepared for screaming. But you know, cutting just the fringe is dfferent from having a full-head cut. Also, she didn't have to endure razor sounds which I think poor boys would have to! But I can't bear to have the rest of her hair cut now with the waves and all, so it will be sometime before she experiences the works :)

cindy:
Awwww! I'm sure she wouldn't mind sharing her biscuit with you too!

Haha, yes we've had a few people who've said she looks a little like her Yiyi

It is at Bukit Merah Central. I used to go as a kid then forgot about them for years until my mum reminded me. They're just a regular neighbourhood place. For us, I think what worked was that the stylist took time to talk to her first and get her interested in what was happening. Hope Nana has a good 1st experience!
