First Hair Cut Beliefs

It has been a family practice to have the first hair cut when baby turns one year old. Before going to any salon, we'll cut a few hair strands and insert them to a page in a book. It was believed that the child would become smart or would excel in some fields depending on the kind of book where the hair was inserted. Is this a joke?

I personally do not believe this crap but I do it anyway, hahaha! We won't lose anything here if this is not true but, if it is, then baby will grow smart. I did this to my first two kids and I will do it again to my baby (though he is not a baby anymore, I still consider him my baby). Oh, well, huh.

Belief or No Belief, we are going to have baby's first hair cut. His hair has grown long and thin, and it becomes unruly especially after getting out of bed. I did the first hair cuts with my first two kids. However, with the second one, I went to a salon and let the hair experts finish the job. I realized then that it's more difficult to cut a boy's hair. I just can't get the right hairstyle for him. So, it's better to leave them to professionals like the staff of Temecula Beauty Salon.

Now that baby turned a year old, he will probably have his first hair cut. But I won't do it on my own. I've learned my lesson pretty well.


  1. hi again!u sure is right,belief or no belief we moms sure do it! my kids' hair were all tucked neatly in between pages of the bible.i still have to find out what the bishops and priests have to say to this!:)

  2. hahaha, they'll probably say you chose the right book, assuming they're "in" with the practice"

  3. You know, our moms told us that old wives' tale about the hair and not cutting it before the kid's one. I don't believe it, of course, so when I cut my son's hair at 6 mos., my mom freaked out. LOL.

    Oooo...I wanna see pics of your baby's first haircut!
