Haircuts

Before.Today Arosha and I got our haircuts at the place that I’ve been cutting my hair at for the past 15 years. It’s a typical old barber shop where everybody knows your name and a guy who knows how your like your hair cut — Artur. I think a lot of my local friends still get their haircuts from him or used to when they lived around here.

Arosha getting his haircut.Arosha got his second barber haircut here as well — his first ever two were done by grandma. We’re surprised by his patience. He can easily sit there and follow directions given to him by Artur and let him do his job without a problem. He talks and listens about the process. And of course there is an anticipation of a lollipop that all kids get at the end of the cut by the shop owner.

In the process.

First Time at Barber Shop

This Saturday Aroshka has got his first “professional” haircut. We did not really plan it, so I did not have a chance to stress out about Aroshka’s reaction to a hair salon.

After our daily ouside time, Danya picked Aroshka and me up from a playground, and we went to a barber shop. The plan was to simply get Danya a haircut, but to our surprise Aroshka said that he wants one too. His hair was cut twice before by his grandma, but never by a stranger. In the past I worried that electrical trimmer would freak him out (as was the case with his daddy), but apparently our boy is fearless.

Arosha at the barber shop for the first time.Not only Aroshka did not cry or resist, but he quite enjoyed it too. Danya’s barber, Artur, was great — he was explaining everything to Aroshka as he went and overall made him feel at ease. Of course, the promise of candies at the end of the procedure also helped matters.

The haircut cost $10. In comparison, the adult’s one is priced $13 at the same shop. Considering that it takes more effort to work with the child, I think it should be the opposite.

First haircut at barber shop.The funny thing was that Aroshka kept saying stuff like “как красиво, дядя!” (how beautiful) from time to time, and enjoyed getting a new look overall.

Danya made a long video of almost the whole thing, but of course you don’t have to watch it all.
