We took him to Kwik Cut. It's located in the IKEA-Curve underpass. They charge a flat rate of RM13 for each haircut. If you're looking to replicate The Rachel, please go elsewhere. But if you just want your bangs trimmed or your toddler's hair chopped off, this isn't a bad choice. This is our 2nd time there getting Connor's hair cut.
Mummy was well-prepared for the Battle of the Hair. I wore a satiny finish sort of top so that the hair would all slide off. Don't wear a fabric top because all the hair will just stick to it. And don't pick a white top for god's sake. I picked a printed top so that you can't see the hairs clinging to it. I also packed M&Ms to distract him, the iPad, lots of wipes and a Thomas the Tank Engine tee for him to change into apres-cut.
So did the procedure go smoothly?
He screamed so loudly all the way through that concerned passers-by were coming into the shop just to see if we were kidnapping the child. Honest! My bro-in-law was standing outside the shop, watching our stroller and he said people were asking each other if some kid was being abused in the shop.
It took Dear Hubby AND me to restrain him before the stylist could do her job. The M&Ms didn't help either. He would pop one into his mouth tearfully, glance at all the hair stuck to his arms, freak out, scream... and yes, the M&M would fall right out of his mouth.
At the end of what seemed an eternity, we were done. Behind us were a line of customers, all staring in shock and sympathy. I wiped off the snot, sweat and tears and dusted down a sobbing Connor with baby powder and produced the Thomas tee with a grand flourish. We gave him big hugs and took him to McDs for a sundae treat.
This is Connor right after the cut. He looks completely different!
And this is Mummy shortly after we got home, all tired out from the Battle. Yes I was really asleep in that pic and had no idea Dear Hubby thought it would be "...so funny!" to snap a pic. One moment I was helping Connor build a tower of blocks to knock down. The next, I'm the one who's knocked down. Zzzzzzzz.....
