Flashback Friday: Nakayla’s First Haircut

September 26, 2014


Every now and then, people will be asking me why Nakayla’s hair was cut so short. Some even commented how daring we were to do it. After all, most little girls have long hair now, right?

In all honesty, I wanted to grow her hair out too. I mean, just look at how cute she is!

But alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

Remember last November when Nakayla suffered from preauricular infection?

Well, we noticed signs of inflammation again, and sometimes, there would be the smell of pus. Doing what we feel was best to prevent a re-infection, we decided to cut off the hair on the sides, allowing the hole to breath and remain as dry as possible. There’s no way I’m going through another round of feeding her antibiotics for 14 days!

As a result of the snip off the sides, her hair looked way out of proportion. This was when I decided professional help was required!

The only problem was… The hair salon I have brought Blake to on the last two occasions has closed down! I was upset and at a complete lost. I wasn’t thinking much and just allowed my legs to carry us to the next place my brain could churn up.

Next thing I know, we were standing inside EC House (Tampines Mall).

I guess my brain had a momentary flashback when searching for hair salons in the vicinity, because Blake had his first professional haircut at EC House too! Only difference is, Blake visited the outlet at Bedok Point. Haha!

As usual, the girl was cool as cucumber

During the time Nakayla was having her hair cut, a group of old ladies had gathered at the entrance of the shop to watch Nakayla. I could hear them discussing among themselves as to how unbelievable it is to have a young child sit so still and not make a sound during a hair cut. They even asked me how old she was, and was further blown away when I revealed she was 19 going 20 months old then.

What can I say? I’m super proud of my little girl!

Here’s hoping I’m not jinxing it though. After all, Blake did well on his first haircut, but not so good on his third. It’s never a sure thing with the children!

But the next time I bring either or both children for a haircut, I’m heading down to the EC House at Bedok Mall!

Just look at it!

Note: This is NOT a sponsored post. Somehow, I’m drawn to EC House for $10 haircuts. Although, if EC House would like my children to be ambassadors for their brand, or sponsor them, I won’t say no if the terms and conditions are right! Hehe.
