Babies' first haircuts
While moms often prefer to entrust their head to a fancy salon, their kids normally expect something else. Babies may appreciate also a special treatment but probably prefer replacing the tea from Yunnan Province by some fresh milk.
Thankfully, some passionate hair artists have decided to specialize in children hair treatment. And they do have the best milk and experienced people!
Dealing with children when it comes to cutting their hair is not the easiest thing. But luckily, these specialized salons have imagined a suitable children environment with tons of toys, animations and food so that this hard moment could even become a piece of cake.
