Its been almost four years and my daughter never had a haircut. When I saw a discount at the fancy Catherine de France hair salon on Sunday, I thought I should take my girl. I asked my four year old plenty times before we left the house if she wanted a haircut, and if she was really sure, she was.
Surely when we got to the salon she got nervous and scared. Lucky for her there were some rocking horses and slide outside, so she could play a bit. One of the hairdressers wanted to go outside and cut her hair were she was convertible. But daughter decided that she wanted to come inside, and watch some paw patrol while getting her first haircut ever.
We discussed the haircut and the hairdresser was a star with our girl. Patient and working fast, getting rid of the dead ends with finesse. While getting her hair cut she was watching her show and was a happy camper when the hairdresser asked if she wanted a braid. The haircut cost around RMB 100 with a 10% discount on Sunday. We will be back for more hair styling as the patience was priceless.
