Before: The Mohawk/Toupee look
Can you see it? He has three different horizontal lines on the back..
For both hair cuts I've taken Colin to a childrens' salon, complete with videos and toys and stylists who should deal with children all the time. The first time we went to snipets in CT and this time we went to Frankie's Playce in Queens, complete with an airplane and a fire engine, balloons, toys, and Barney and Elmo on TV. The stylist was really trying hard to make him comfortable (which is the kiss of death for this kid, but what choice did she have?) Colin is just classic 'slow to warm up' in that new experiences and certain people make him very uncomfortable. In this case I forced it because I really wanted him to get a hair cut which just made it miserable for everyone involved. Next time maybe we will go in just to let him look around and talk to the stylist with no pressure and we can simply leave if he gets too upset. He just needs to warm up and he'll be fine.
