Miaomiao has a beautiful black hair since she was born. We have had her hair cut sevral times. At first she always cried and refused others to touch her hair. But as she grows older, she doesn’t reject a haircut like before.
The same as me, she always wears her hair in bangs. As our bangs in the forehead both grow a bit long these days, i decide to take Miaomiao out to cut our bangs short together today. She also agrees to have a haircut with me when i ask her opinion this morning.
So after breakfast, i take Miaomiao to the small barbershop downstairs to cut our bangs. There are already sevral uncles and aunts here waiting when we come into the barbershop. The barber aunt Deng is cutting hair for another aunt. Miaomiao and i sit on the chairs inside and wait with others.
It takes us more than half an hour’s waiting till ours turn. Other uncles and aunts have all finished their haircut and leave. Miaomiao is always sitting on my legs and watching aunt Deng cuts hairs for others during this period. “What is she doing?””Are we waiting in the queue?””Is that granpa shaving?” “Why men have beard but women don’t have?” “Why do you want to have your haircut before me?”She also asks many questions like these while waiting.
Considering the broken hair may fall in her neck and make her feels uncomfortable after haircut, i decide to have my haircut first and then it’s her turn. I let her sit on the chair beside me, i sit on the chair for haircut first. Aunt Deng cuts my bangs short quickly. Then i get off the chair and take Miaomiao to the chair. As she has said that she wants to sit on the chair alone as an adult to have her haircut. So i just stand beside her and hold her hands while aunt Deng is cutting her bangs. Miaomiao is nervous while aunt Deng puts on a red apron for her before cutting her bangs. And while aunt is cutting her bangs with a shear in front her, she closes her eyes tightly and lowers her head in most of the time, even if we ask her to raise her head. She is a bit afraid. As it’s not convenient to cut her bangs well if she keeps on lowering her head, so at last i have to hold her on my legs to make her feel better and help her raise her head while aunt Deng is cutting her bangs.
After her hair is well cut, we go home and both of us take a shower then. As a little kid, she already performs well enough while having a haircut. And i believe she can become more and more brave in the future and doesn’t afraid of haircut anymore.
