I'm finally biting the bullet & getting Isobelle's haircut for the 1st time. It's getting quite long & we've got an underwater photo shoot next week & all I can see is that her hair will be in her eyes. I phoned today & they have an appointment this afternoon. She's 21 months & will sometimes sit still but any tips & advice to make it easier would be gratefully received! She loves books so I was thinking of taking a few books for us to look at whilst she gets it cut but then she may just be happy to watch what is happening.

My LO wasn't keen (but she doesn't like her hair being brushed normally tho). She wouldn't sit in chair and kept walking around. The hairdresser was lovely - gave her a brush to 'brush mummy's hair' and followed her round carefully snipping away - they even ended sitting on floor together at one point!

Oh all the mirrors help - toddlers looooove admiring themselves. LOL

Can she play or watch something on your phone/iPad? That works with Alex. We had lots of tears at his first few haircuts though. Good luck!

I don't have a smart phone so that doesn't work. She's not overly keen on having her hair combed but is better if she has her own comb so I might take 1 of her combs with me. Will just have to see what mood she is in, it's not till 3 so hopefully she'll have a nice long nap before!

Does she have a doll with hair that you could take do she could brush her dolls hair at the same time?
W is 23 months (not had her hair cut yet though!) but she loves colouring in at the moment. She will happily sit for ages with a colouring book and crayons so maybe try that? Or some picture books?

I think I might take a lot of things in a bag just in case! She has a doll but it has woollen hair so you can't brush it. Might take crayons and a colouring book though as she also loves colouring.
Thanks for all the ideas ladies

She sat still the whole time! & I didn't need any of my bag of toys & books (or the apple!).
