I cut Arata's front fringe 10 days ago. Well, he only let me do 2 attempts, which left the right side of his fringe shorter than the left. And I've left it just like that until now. We went to
a Kids hair salon Zion
today. They have seats like toy cars and while you are watching an Ampamman DVD, one of Arata's favourites characters, they cut your hair.
Neither car nor Ampamman worked on Arata. As soon as I put him in the 'car', Arata realised his hair was going to be cut and started to cry, trying to get down. We gave up the car and I held Arata while his hair was being cut. It wasn't easy to hold Arata as he was resisting really hard. His face was covered with hair and tear and snotty nose. We were wearing a cape which is designed to cover both mother and child but it didn't stay on us! It was really dangerous, Arata kept protecting his hair from the hairdresser.
It was a battle between the hairdresser and me vs Arata. I said to the hairdresser, "Please don't worry about the falling hair. Just cut it!" I tried to hold down Arata and he was screaming, "Daddy!!!!!!" Arata calmed down only the last couple of minutes after a good-looking female hairdresser came to play and talk with Baikinman doll.... Why do you hate hair cut so much, Arata??? (The photos are Arata's 'Before' and 'After'.)
