From the time Ellie was born I’ve had hundreds of questions that started with the same 3 words “At what age…”.
At what age do I start potty training? For us it was 2.
At what age do you move from a crib to a toddler bed? For us it was 2.5.
At what age do you move to a big girl bed? For us it was almost 4.
At what age do you get a real hair cut at a big girl hair salon? For us it was 5, but we still don’t have a real hair style.
Ellie hair is nothing like mine. I have way to much hair. Ellie has baby fine hair. I can curl my hair by putting it in a bun held by a make-up brush. I couldn’t curl Ellie’s hair if I used 4 cans of extra strength Aqua Net. I have absolutely no idea what to do with her hair!
Ellie got her first hair cut at 2 at a kids salon.
We never cute bangs. I’ve always just kept it how it grew. Basically no real style.
Earlier last year I took her to The Dry Bar with me for her blow out.
Again, no real style. We just let them do their thing.
Recently she’s started to point out hair styles in magazines. Of course she doesn’t have enough hair for those styles, but I can tell she’s ready to find her own style.
Today I took her to her first big girl salon.
Again, we just trimmed, no real style.
So at what age do you actually let your kids pick their hair style and how do you pick a style?
