There is something momentous about a child’s first haircut, the tiniest first step toward growing up. It’s an occasion when anything can happen. Trepidation might give way to tears at the sight of the scissors, or a boy might look into his father’s eyes and find the courage to take his seat in the chair, let the barber’s cape be draped around his shoulders and the scissors and combs do their nimble work. It’s an incomparable moment for parents who know just then how much they are needed. And it’s their first glimpse of that child’s future, independent, strong and full of life’s possibilities.
Aidan Gill for Men introduces “A Child’s Heirloom Haircut,” a
singular experience that captures a child’s first haircut with all
of its whimsical surprises. Under the scissors of proprietor Aidan Gill
himself, your child’s
experience will be transformed into the special occasion it should rightly
be, all documented through the lens of native New
Orleans photographer Cheryl Gerber.
With “A Child’s Heirloom Haircut,” your child’s
experience will be forever commemorated with an 8” X 10” black
and white museum-quality print by Cheryl Gerber, housed in a handsome
frame with an acid-free mount and finished with a lock of your child’s
hair beneath the photograph. For inquiries concerning appointments and
pricing, please call 504-587-9090.
Like a child’s first bronzed pair of baby shoes or first tooth, the first haircut is a small but essential part of his or her personal history. Preserve it forever with “A Child’s Heirloom Haircut” at Aidan Gill for Men.
