THE SALON — Kid haircuts are not often a task parents of certain children look forward to.
Your child may be as good as gold, with a no-fuss no-muss attitude toward haircuts. But with some children, it’s the exact opposite. Heck, there are even special kid haircuts salons in existence that specialize in dealing with wiggles, tears and breakdowns.
There are other techniques you can try to shear your child’s locks instead of taking them to a salon. There’s the “one quick snip at a time over several weeks,” the classic 80s invention the Flowbee, or you can do the “someone holds the kid down with all their might as the other person hacks away at the hair, doing their best to stab a squirming, crying child with the scissors” method.
So we’ve covered good as gold behavior and the breakdowns. But today, you will discover that there is a third category of haircut emotions — children who think haircuts are the best and funniest thing in the whole world.
All you need for proof is a video posted by Twitter user @akkitwts. In the video there is a baby sitting in his mother’s lap. The stylist is using electric shears to cut the child’s hair, and the experience for the apparently ticklish wee one is a joy to behold.
Whatever bad news you may have been encountering or reading, I guarantee this will make you smile, if not laugh loudly. And the world will suddenly seem ok. pic.twitter.com/7uLx3jkhka— Akki (@akkitwts) August 3, 2019
He laughs. And he laughs and laughs with such joy. And everyone in the salon is laughing. And I’m laughing. And now you’re laughing. And maybe now we all feel a little better about the world. In fact, if haircuts made us all this happy, we’d probably live in a constant state of world peace.
