Baby First Haircut
Are you looking for proved and trusted baby barbers for your baby's first haircut? Do you want a professional , hygienic, joyful and smooth baby haircutting service with peace of mind? We have very rich experience and ensure parents not to worry about any matters regarding it. Here are basic knowledge and tips:
1. Can baby haircut be only “Botak” style?
There are 3 styles for parents to choose: First is to shave completely to be bald, also known as Botak. Second is to keep 3mm, 6mm or even 9mm hair, we call it Durian Head style. Last one is to trim to get hair for making souvenirs only, the baby hair shape looks same as before.
2.Why is baby haircutting at home best?
After haircutting, there are broken hair and residues left on baby s scalp, baby will feel itching and irritating. If haircut is done at home, baby can take a bath immediately and change clothes! More comfortable and convenient!
3. When are the best moments for baby haircut?
Parents can choose any convenient moment for baby haircut. Traditionally, there are some lucky moments:
Full month: Perfect and Happy
48 days: Strong and Prosperous
100 days: Long living to 100 years
Four months: Everything is smooth
4. Is the baby haircut necessary?
Most newborns have dirty layers of fat on their scalps after birth and they are difficult to be washed off at dense hair part. In Singapore‘s humid weather, some babies are likely to grow cradle caps and dandruffs. Shaving baby hair can help completely clean scalps and reduce risks of cradle caps and dandruffs.
Another reason is the growth of new hair. Baby hair grows in mother’s womb with a water surrounding condition. After birth the environment changed, just like a fish lands off water, so that baby hair will automatically drop off in the next few months. Shaving off baby hair can expedite the dropping process and help baby grow new hair smoothly.
5. Is baby hair cutting dangerous? Any potential risks?
It is safe if you engage an experienced baby barber’s service. Before haircutting, shaver and scissor have to be sterilized. When shaver works on baby’s scalp, the shaving angle and strength must be well controlled and barber must be careful, responsive and alert especially when dealing with cradle caps, wounds and swelling caused by birth operations.
6. Is there any traditional ceremony for full month hair cutting?
For Chinese tradition, some parents would like to prepare 2 red eggs and 2 spring onions which means yuan yuan man man(perfect) and cong ming(clever). I also have some non-Chinese customers who prepare them. Need to say, it is optional and up to parents.
一些父母会在婴儿理满月头时，准备两粒红鸡蛋和两条青葱（一把也可以）， 寓意宝宝满月圆圆满满， 鸿（红）运当头，聪明伶俐。
With shaving more than 10,000 babies in Sinapore, James shares some tips for baby first haircutting:
- During haircut process, parents are encouraged to say some words or sing songs to baby who can feel safe and relaxed. Haircutting process is more likely to be smooth.
- Mums are encouraged to feed babies before appointment time. If a baby is very hungry during haircuting, mums should feed baby first then continue haircut process.
- When a baby is sleepy during haircut, parents can wait for a while, usually baby will fall asleep very quickly then haircut process can continue.
- Before haircutting, please check baby’s diapers and change if it is wet, some babies are very sensitive.
- Better in a cool environment because air fan has to be switch off to avoid blow hair away. Some babies can not stand hot weather.
- After haircutting, baby need to bath or wash head because there are some broken hair left on baby’s scalp and baby will feel itching. If baby falls asleep parents can let baby sleep on the baby bed but need to put a handkerchief under baby’s head, this is to avoid broken hair drop on the bed sheet.
- Some of parents want us to shave baby’s eyebrow and it can be done safely. But usually we do not cut baby’s eyelash.
- At most situations, baby haircut is a smooth process. However, some babies are very sensitive and may cry, but we can take many ways to comfort baby and continue the haircut process.
There are some situations parents are very concerned: some babies have thick cradle caps, some babies have birth bruises and lumps, some baby just had vaccine injection, we have rich experience to handle.
