*I made a busy box when she was like three that we only get out when it was hair time. The rule was she had to sit still and let me play with her hair while she played with the box.
*Deal making. Beans likes to play with my hair and that will sometimes work for me. I say she can play with mine after I get to play with hers.
*When I am cutting a little persons hair (at school) I always give them my water bottle and let them drench my mirror. They hold really still when you are letting them be a little destructive at the same time. Cleaning up the mess afterwords is not a big deal if I can get them to hold still for a bit.
*Do hair in a place where they can be watching there favorite movie while you practice.
*Offer to take pictures of it and make a big deal about there hair when they let you do a fun style. Believe it or not attention is attention and I don't know any kid that doesn't love attention. Give it to 'em.
Whatever works for you is great, but make sure and keep hair styling time a POSITIVE experience. If you are pulling out hair and causing tears just to get a cute style it just isn't worth it. Go for the at least brushed look until your little one is ready for a fun/fancy style. What advice or tips do you guys have. I am sure there are much more than just the few I have suggested here. These are just the ones I have done before. Please comment below with what works for you.
