Fun at Snip-its: Rocco’s first haircut

From the day he was born, our son has had a full head of beautiful brown hair, which we’ve absolutely adored!

Lately, those luscious little locks have been getting in the way of play. A “no, no” in baby-hood! We’ve caught Rocco pushing his hair away from his eyes several times. And off course, I take these signals as a sign for first haircut fun! Vinnie especially loves his little guys “hockey-style” flow, so it was a BIG deal to finally convince him that Rocco needed his first hair cut. He was simply just sad to see it get chopped. Can you tell my husband has a slight obsession with good hair? I guess I can’t blame him, after spending his entire life looking after his own set of dapper dark curls.

Daddy finally came to terms with the fact that the first haircut needed to happen, so we took Rocco on a little field trip to a kids salon called Snip-its.

This place was filled with colorful distractions, which was perfect for our little squirmy worm. The chop session ended up being a whole two minutes. Nothing dramatic…more like a glorified bang trim, really.

Snip, snip, snip.

Rocco enjoyed all the sights and sounds and even received a certificate!

I have to admit, getting his haircut for the first time did make him seem like such a big boy. Seriously, where does time go?
