I really wanted to be able to share with you a touching story of my little girl’s very first haircut at Harmony Barber Shop at Magic Kingdom park after this fall’s visit. Alas, she’s still rocking the natural pixie cut. Appropriate for a little girl who’s nickname is Tink, but sad for an overly sentimental and neurotic Disney mama. So that those of you who are less follicularly challenged may partake of this very special service, I’ll provide some information now. Maybe I can update this post in a couple of years with my own photos and story.
The Harmony Barber Shop is located between the Emporium and the Fire Station on Main Street USA. The barbers can cut and style anyone’s hair but the specialty of the house is first haircuts. They have all sorts of tricks up their sleeves (and lots of practice and patience) to work with the littlest guests. Bubbles, stickers, and giant plastic scissors are some of the tools at the ready. For your $18, your little one gets a good haircut, an ear hat embroidered with “first haircut,” a certificate, and you’ll take home priceless photos and memories. Be sure to go early in the day to minimize your wait time.
I am sure lots of NDKs have had their first haircuts at Harmony Barber Shop. I’d love to hear your stories!
