Kiernan has needed a haircut for awhile. But between the move and all the colds that have been plaguing us recently if I asked him if he wanted to get his hair cut and he said no I decided it wasn’t worth a battle.
Yesterday we decided to have dinner at Place d’Orleans and I decided to try again as we walked by Melonhead. He was intrigued and agreed that yes, he would get his hair cut, sitting in the Nemo plane.
I was a bit nervous because we took him there when it first opened (he was about 2) and we didn’t have a great experience. I also know people who haven’t had good experiences. But really, what it comes down to is the stylist, and we got a great one this time! Her name was Chelsea and she was patient with Kiernan when he got nervous and kept leaning forward, when he was wiggling all over the place and not fully cooperating, and she gave him what I think is a really nice cut!
She even went along without batting an eyelash when I stuck the babies into the plane with Kiernan.
And the other chairs provided great entertainment for the babies while we waited.
And all kids get to have a ponyride at the end of the experience which Kiernan kindly shared with his brother.
The haircuts aren’t cheap: $20 + tax + tip. Again, I can’t recommend the place all the time, but Chelsea was great and I think the money was worth the fun they had while we were there!
