How to Get Your Child to Stay Still While Doing Hairstyles:
This is probably the most common question I get from people when I post hairstyles with Victoria. I get it, your child needs to stay still. I have a few hairstyle hacks.
- Have an iPad? Set up some games for them to play.
- Can you do it in front of the TV? Easy attention grabber.
- Do you have a coloring station? Set it up.
- Are they into any good books? Have them read away.
- Toy time. If you know they will stay still, let them play with toys while you do your hair.
It’s important to get your child still (the best you can) while you’re doing hairstyles. It’s the best way to ensure an outcome that you’ll be happy with.
