|My first attempt at cutting Vito's hair last year.|
Going to a kiddie salon's been stressful because Vito freaks out when he sees and hears the other kids freaking out. Nagkakahawaan ba. Kainis pa the other parents kasi they're yelling at their kids, you know, yelling promises ("I'll buy you ice cream, kuya!") or threats ("Stop crying or else!!!") or taunts ("You're so duwag pala!"). Hindi naman kami maka-tiempo na walang tao sa salon. So, instead of getting stressed out, I just took it upon myself to cut Vito's hair. He doesn't have an ego pa naman so he doesn't mind looking awful haha.
But Iñigo is about to turn 2 and his curls were making people mistake him for a girl. So we decided that it was time for his first professional haircut. His first ever haircut!!! We also figured that maybe if sabay yung magkapatid magpagupit, they won't feel so afraid. So we went to Peppermint Salon in SM Aura. We guessed they'd like it there because every time we passed it, the boys would be so enchanted.
We guessed right! They loved it there! They loved that it was so bright and full of toys and things to do. There was a good selection of videos to watch. There was the promise of lollipops, too, so there was incentive to be on their best behavior. And look at how wonderful they were!
|Vito goes first. We told him he has to be brave so that Iñigo will be brave.|
|We didn't have to worry. Iñigo just sat down in his plane and let the cutting begin. Not a peep!|
|Well, until the cutting happened around his ear. Then he acted annoyed, like there were mosquitoes in his ear.|
|Vito watching TV.|
|I love this part. Vito said, "Are you okay, baby?" Mommy melting here!|
|I love that red red red plane!|
|Vito got the car. Here he is checking out his new look.|
|No more curls! I'm sad! But he's still awfully cute nevertheless.|
|Happy with their lollipops!|
Vince and I loved the salon, too, for all the reasons the kids loved it. I liked that the toys were clean, too. There was a good variety of toys and other activities. I liked the uniforms of the barbers, too, and how quiet and patient they were. There were still the loud parents and crying kids, though, but wala naman tayong magagawa sa kanila. Buti na lang talaga sobrang ganda ng place so my kids were so distracted.
Ang hindi lang nagustuhan ni Vince is sobrang malamok dun. Ako naman I didn't like that they didn't accept credit cards (I don't bring cash so I panicked nung magbabayad na). Medyo may kamahalan din siya but since the place was so nice and my kids liked it there, okay lang. Masaya na kami!
Peppermint Kids Salon and Spa Boutique is at the basement level of SM Aura in BGC, Taguig. Remember to bring cash and insect repellent!!!
