My Eldest Son's First Hair cut


In this modern world, Filipinos still follows the old custom or superstitious belief of not cutting the child's hair before its first birthday or the child will be sicklyWhether it is true or not, nobody knows and we still be following this belief for the next generations.


My y eldest son's first haircut was in 1999 when he turned one year old. He seems to be a very cooperative costumer. Probably just wondering what is going on, on top of his head. I was working in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia(KSA) that time so my sister just sent me all  the pictures of his birthday celebration including his first hair cut by mail. 

Internet is not popular yet at that time and even the pioneer social networking website Friendster was not launched yet and now a history because of Facebook. The only means of communicating to the family back home was the pay phone and mail. Then after a year, cellphone was become a trend in Saudi Arabia and they started selling sim card to the foreign workers payable monthly.

Anyway, back to his first haircut, you'll see the big difference on his look after the hair cut. I like the bald look better.

  14. Haha. I think the one with the bald look is better too!

    It's nice that your child is a very cooperative customer. They (children) really hate body mutilation! :)

    Anyway, are you able to keep some trimmings for scrapbooking? Hehe. Another Pinoy practice. :D

  15. I didn't know that there was a superstitious belief about getting a haircut before the kid turns 1. Although it didn't quite matter to my nieces and nephews.. Heck, my nephew even had his first haircut at age 3. :) And yes, I would have to agree that the 2nd photo of your son looks cuter. :)

  18. It's so touching to see the pictures of your eldest first hair cut!

    I have to smile and giggle, too over the before and after picture, he did seem (at least on the pictures!) to favour his curly locks. But I agree with the comments above, he is cute with and without curls.

    Oh my, how time flies. 1999 is the year my eldest was born. I remember saving her first locks of hair - sadly not from a haircut! - as she was hospitalised (9 months old)and they had to remove a patch of her hair for her to be fed with fluids, as she would have otherwise been dehydrated.

    I forgot about the superstitious belief of not cutting hair before the child is one y.o.!

  19. Having them submit to a haircut can be a big challenge and exercise. You need to condition them kids that having a hair cut is a very enjoyable thing :)

  20. Personally, I find his curly hair adorable but having a child's head shaven is like a right of passage, di ba?

  21. My daughter is 18 months old already but we didn't cut her hair because it's still too short.
