I finally did it! I took Aston to get his hair cut. We were at Westfield Southland on Thursday for a bloggers event, when I noticed Candy Hair. So I took a deep breath , Aston held my hand and we went in.
I had no idea how it was going to go?
Candy Hair is a hairdressing salon that specializes predominantly in children's haircuts, but they also provide many other services. I'd heard about Candy Hair - Kids salon and party room when I was at a Matilda's Market a few years ago. I've never forgot about them, but the thing stopping me was being scared of someone cutting Aston's hair and them cutting his curls off and the fact it is on the other side of Melbourne to me!
It really is the coolest place for the kids to get their hair cut, I'm so proud of Aston (and me) for doing so well. Each chair has a cool retro style tin cars or as Aston chose a peddal plane.
Aston's hair was quite long so when Amanda wet his hair it was REALLY long. I wasn't sure
if his curls were still going to be there after the cut but I made sure that Amanda knew I still wanted
his hair to have the curls.
Each special seat also has a screen too, so Aston choose to watch Thomas The Tank Engine and then Mickey Mouse. The staff were so nice and Aston's hairdresser Amanda, was really patient. She had all the right moves to get Aston to sit still, it was like magic!
Candy Hair also have a little play area with a TV and lots of cool little toys
that you can buy for a few dollars too.
The coolest thing ever was because it was Aston's first hair cut with Mummy they actually gave him a certificate for us to keep and even put some of his hair on it for me too.
I couldn't resist taking a photo of Amanda and Aston together and I am really happy with the cut.
I think we will be heading back to Candy Hair from now on as it was a really good experience.

I mentioned above I heard about Candy Hair at Matilda's Market, you can visit their site to find out about some cool boutique markets around Australia.
Disclaimer: I was not paid for this blog post and even if I was, it wouldn't change my opinion.
I chose to write about this store as it was an awesome place and our experience was fantastic.
As a Mum I know it is always hard to find a good hairdresser that is patient with your kids so I thought
it was worth sharing with other families.
