A Little One Milestone: Her First Haircut Ever (Singapore's The D's Kiddy Salon)!

We are not a family blessed with luscious locks upon birth; a fact that is clearly evidenced by the numerous photos of both the Husband and I as little ones with Shaolin monk-like dos.  It wasn't really by choice, mind you.  It's just that our genes proclaim that growing hair is an art and should not be rushed (*sigh*).  And so it comes as to no surprise that the Little One took up after us, too. 

Slow-growing hair does not mean no hair at all, hence her locks, while taking it's precious time coming out, eventually grew to uneven lengths (mostly my fault really, as I took a lock of her hair when she was but a wee babe of 1 -- month, that is.)  And so, it was finally decided that the Little One would have her very first haircut at at age of 21 months.

Considering this is an important milestone (with us deathly afraid of even trimming off a part near her ear), we decided that a special kiddy barber was in order.  So off we marched to The D's Kiddy Salon for this memorable occasion.

The D's Kiddy Salon

The D's Kiddy Salon is a salon offering hair cut and styling services and products designed specifically for children, including infants.

Waiting and play area

More often than not, kids are scared of new and different experiences.  It adds to their stress and anxieties in a world that they do not yet feel too secure in.  So it's really comforting to know that the Little One would be in a fun area that is designed specifically with wee ones, like her, in mind.

And with stylists who really know their stuff, well, let's just say the Little One's first haircut went by without much of a hitch.


No amount of styling, unfortunately, cannot disguise her lack of hair.  *sigh*  I just hope in the future we'll have more hair style options available to her.

My little... boy?  Waahhhh!!!

Oh well, it will come soon enough.  J

  1. Her hair might have been cut a bit too short but she's still such a cutie :)

  2. :-) Don't worry too much. Her hair will grow long. I actually envy the slow pace of growth of your hair because it means less visit to barber for me.

    Less barber visit = less expenses.

  3. Haha. I went through the same thing. Now, Syrena's hair grows so fast, I give her boy cuts to avoid too much sweat. Your girl's sooo cute, hair or no hair! :)

    1. Love your little girl's name a. Sounds so fantastical. =)

  4. I used to worry about my first son's hair, too. Now, I need to bring him to the salon every 3 weeks hahahahaha... And my second son's the same, too.


  5. the little child must have had a great time watching Dora :)

    1. Actually, it's because of them that she now has this obsession with Dora. Hehehe! =)

  6. Dont worry to much..for sure her hair will grow mom used to have this issue with me and now...galit na galit sya with my hair coz I damaged it with hair coloring...hahahaha:)

    but she still lovely:)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
