First Baby Haircuts Are a Challenge

That first baby haircut can be frustrating for both baby and mom. Here are some hints from a fellow professional Judee Norton-Andrews:

First Baby Haircuts

Snip-tips From a Professional

Oh, that precious little head of hair! Whether your baby was born bald or with a head full of locks, the time will eventually come when he’ll need that first baby haircut.

Some parents opt to do it themselves, but most bring baby in to a salon. Judee Norton-Andrews, a professional hairdresser in Allen Park, Mich., for over 30 years, explains.

“It’s hard enough to keep hold on a squirming baby, much less try to do that with one hand and cut hair with the other,” she says. “When a mother brings her baby into the shop, she can hold him or calm him while a professional takes care of the rest.”

As for keeping baby calm, that’s a story in itself. Most babies that come in for their first cut are around a year old, says Norton-Andrews, and about half are criers and half not. If mom or dad is unsuccessful in calming a crier, there are other distractions at hand.

“We always have something to get babies’ attention,” she explains. “Waving a brightly-colored balloon or stuffed animal usually worksBaby Haircuts Need Not be a Trauma. The best is if you can get baby to look in the mirror, though – he’ll think he’s looking at another baby and it’s fascinating to him.”

When it comes to the actual baby haircut, some babies are held by their parents, while some are content to sit in the booster chairs, which fit onto the regular salon chairs, without a fuss. Then, the hairdresser lightly sprays baby’s head with a mist of water, and trims quickly and precisely – before the little one gets too antsy.

“In most cases, babies’ hair is fine and makes for a quick cut,” says Norton-Andrews. “There’s not much to it – just a basic haircut to get the hair out of their eyes and keep them looking well-coiffed.”

That is, until they’re old enough to decide what hairstyle they want to wear. The debate is still on as to whether it’s easier to get baby to accept a haircut or a teenager.

Eye Lashes Making a Comeback

Eye Lashes.

Eye Lashes Are Back

As false eye lashes gradually shed their tarty image, cosmetics companies such as MAC, Shu Uemura and Vincent Longo have begun offering lash serum to compliment the false eye lashes on offer at Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York or their own tony boutiques, training the sales staff in application techniques.

Scan the celebrity tabloids, flip on daytime TV or even the national news and you’ll see them. Amid the amazingly ample breasts, the unlined foreheads and the full lips are sets of long, dense, fluttery eyelashes.

You may cynically, and rightly, assume that implants, Botox and collagen have worked their magic on more than a few of these body parts. Guess what? The eye lashes are fake, too.

Look closely at Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan and a long list of cable news anchors, and you’ll spot the telltale signs: thick eyeliner (to hide the false-eye lash strip edges); eye lashes that nearly touch the brows (only freaks of nature grow them so long); a spidery pattern of spikes that would make Liza Minnelli proud.

The old obsession over big lips has given way to a new fetish for big eye lashesEye Lashes
are Back
. It started with the troupes of thick-eye lashed lasses walking the runways for lofty fashion houses. Fashion magazines and celebrity hairdresser picked up on the notion, and now the rest of us are buying record numbers of “fortified” mascaras and flocking to salons offering the latest beauty fad: eye lash extensions.

And at last, top makeup artists are coming clean about how they make the stars’ eyes shine so bright. “False eye lashes are the best-kept secret in makeup,” said Vincent Longo. “I’ve been doing eye lashes for 22 years, and I don’t think false eye lashes have ever left my kit.”

Eye lash extensions are creating the most buzz. In the painstaking, two-hour process, a technician glues about two dozen individual, artificial eye lashes onto each eyelid’s natural eye lashes, one by one by one. The service is becoming popular nationwide. It can cost anywhere from $45 in a makeup boutique to $250 in a Beverly Hills hair salon. Some practitioners say the single eye lashes are an aesthetic improvement over the three-lash, semi-permanent eye lashes that have been around for 30 years or more and cost less than $10 at a drugstore.
