I’ve been meaning to avail of their services since last year, even before their branches had opened. But my family doesn’t want to cut Coco’s hair and just let it grow for now, since as they say, there wouldn’t be a chance for him to grow it again as long as he is in school (in the future). So I just let it be, even if Coco would always tell me that he wants to cut his hair or I get irritated of his long hair because it is always messy or it is hard to manage whenever I do little shoots with him for our collaborations. But since he is turning 8 soon and I booked a photoshoot for him and so I just had to cut his hair now.
I was thinking of bringing him to a branch but I worry that we might have problems with borrowing a car going to SM Aura, since as of this moment, that is the only branch that is available. So I inquired and scheduled his haircut a few days before his photoshoot. Tip: If you are planning to have your child’s haircut and has a schedule to follow, inquire earlier to get the schedule that will work for you. Imagine, It was only the last day of February when I inquired but the next available date for home service is already March 10. I also tried calling the Eastwood branch last December, because we were suddenly scheduled to have a mini Christmas photoshoot. But there was no available schedule, so nah. Hair cut didn’t push through.
So here is a picture after Coco’s last haircut (January 3, 2020), his hair during the last time he was out before classes were suspended (March 7, 2020) and the lockdown begun and how we can tie his hair few days before we cut it and his hair untied.
But of course, I want to be sentimental like that. The last time Coco had a very long hair was of course, before he had his first hair cut, also at Cuts4Tots. That time, we can also tie his hair, I wasn’t so sure then if I wanted to cut his hair but oh well, we did it.
So this time, I shampooed and combed his hair for the last time because who knows when will he have this hair kind of hair again. Of course, we used Johnson’s Active Fresh Shampoo to keep him fresh all day.
Cut4Tots team arrived 30 minutes earlier than our schedule and Coco was still eating lunch then, so they had to wait for a few more minutes. But it was all good since they still had to set up. They were a team of 2, excluding the driver from the private car that brought them here.
They brought their own chair, TV, table, hair grooming stuff and photo props which were all cleaned, alcohol-sanitized and UV-light sanitized. The comb that they used for Coco is new and they gave it to us after, one per household. They had Coco wear a disposable cape. Kuya barber was wearing disposable gloves, hair cap and apron as well, aside from the face mask and face shield that he was wearing.
They were very careful to not go near Coco until they have started cutting his hair. The whole hair grooming process was 30 minutes only.
All in all, I am satisfied of the home service that Cuts4Tots offer, even though it is worth more than the normal hair cut. I was contemplating on whom I will contact to cut Coco’s hair but it still ended with Cuts4Tots. I am confident that since their main customers are kids, the health of their staff are well taken cared of.
