Beyond the expected

Is there a decent hairdresser for children in Canberra?

By Wini 1 June 2011 22

I have had my 11 year old son’s hair cut again and, again it is terrible.

Why do hairdressers seem to want to cut boys’ hair as short as possible, and without any style at all?

I don’t want a haircut for $15 that is a ‘number four’ – please there must be someone in Canberra who can do a better job?

What’s Your opinion?

I take my four year old to Moes in Tuggers. It is a barbers, however the guy who runs it is young and trendier than me. He asks what you want him to do and whilst he does do a lot with the clippers, if you said you wanted a style he would do that. $20 for kids.

I was surprised by the criticism too. As a mother of four all with different personalities and levels of self efficacy I understand the query about a hairdresser that will give a desired haircut to a child. My 10 year old boy has already started not wanting to go to the hairdressers that I was taking him too because of the short haircuts he gets regardless of request. My other sons and daughter don’t mind at all. I was reading this posting in the hope of finding some hairdressers to try but am dissapointed in the attacks that are being made regarding the question. Does it make any of these people feel better personally to have a dig? Some people like giving themselves a buzz cut and some like a hairdresser that can cut a innovative style, others are inbetween, embrace difference?? I am sorry I don’t have a suggestion for a hairdresser to try, currently seeking one myself that my son will feel okay with. I don’t think you pay for what you get regarding hairdressers necessarily, from experience.
